A LONG Summer Haul & OOTD & Hair (Express, F21, Banana, Abercrombie & H&M)

It was time for some summer shopping.

I will admit that I rarely shop like this. At so many stores, at once. I took advantage of the fact that I was sans kiddos. My trips to the mall tend to be planned out to the "t."

Here are some outfit pics:


Excuse the fly away hairs. They are all growing back in after falling out from my son.

OOTD - Friday Pants.....

As I said in the video. DO NOT judge!! I do not like ironing and I wanted to wear these pants again. They are so comfortable and easy breezy. Rest assured that they will see the likes of my dry cleaner before I wear them again.

Coral & Mint - Bloggers Do It Better

Kristina from Pretty Shiny Sparkly has issued her first Bloggers Do It Better Challenge.
Mint & Coral.

I was super excited when I saw her video last week, and immediately knew I would particpate.

Then life got in the way. I spent a day at the mall with nothing but Father's Day and a Baby Shower on my brain. I did not even glance into stores that might have offered me something to work with.

So, after scouring my closet I came out with a strapless coral dress. The ONLY coral item I own apparently. A mint dress and this mint polka dot blouse. I opted for the polka dot blouse and figured I could add some coral with a necklace. Which in my mind I already own. Do you ever do that??? Own things in your mind, but not in reality??

When reality set in I went for the best way I know to wear color. A bright lip!!

I feel a little inadequate with this first challenge, but I told myself that I would participate, and I walk away with a little note to self:

*Need a coral necklace. Need more coral and mint pieces in wardrobe PERIOD

Here are some pics:
I know, your thinking these are small pictures. I am still learning my camera and the settings. So I had to crop out a lot of the picture which resulted in these images. I know there has to be a way to make them bigger and I will LEARN!!!

OOTD & Turbofire Update Week 4 (Ramble)

Weight: 122 lbs.

Chest: 35" (still breastfeeding)
R. Arm: 10 1/2"
L. ARm: 10 1/2"
Waist: 29"
Hips: 34"
R. Thigh: 19 1/2" (I gained a 1/2")

I feel great!! I have more energy and I look forward to my Turbofire workouts. I do find a towel and water very necessary.

I have not lost anything though and have not really noticed anything in my mommy tummy changing yet. BUT I do have tighter thighs and have gained 1/2' inch in the muscle mass there.

It is sooo much fun!! CHEERS to the next 4 weeks!!!

Please keep in mind that these were taken very late evening (11 pm) so my makeup has been on my face without touch up since this morning (7am). It has worn off in some areas. Just sayin'.
