Sunshine + Skinny Pants = Happy MOM

It is just amazingly silly how quickly my mood and state of mind can change...  Yesterday I was feeling so scattered and out of it and today I am feeling great and raring to go!
Also, it is funny how my style can change from day to day... Yesterday I was all easy dress, blazer...all business.  Today...skinny pants, loud top, heels...all casual.  Maybe it is just this beautiful 65 degree weather...who knows?

Something about wearing these pants with heels...or even with flats...makes me feel like I can take on my little slice of the world! I definitely need to get another pair!!

On the working mom's guilt front... Jack asked me if I could go on his class trip to see a play this week.  Besides the fact that parent chaperon sign ups were months ago, I have to work.  When I told him this he asked why I have to work everyday and can't come to school like Lance's mom.  That just broke my heart... He then told me that I should come to school for his birthday celebration...I did not have the heart to repeat to him that I have to work.  So, I asked his teacher if I could "volunteer" in the classroom that morning so I could be there.  When I told him that I was going to be there he was so excited he did is his "oh yeah" dance...the silly dance he does when he is excited.  I just made me so happy to see him so happy.

Awwww... glad you'll get to visit him on his birthday even if it's not for the celebration. So cute. Loving that top - it has been on my coveting list for awhile. I should have slipped into Gap today to see if they still had it as everything was 30% off extra on sale items...

Awww, I understand the guilt! My Little Guy has a field trip coming up and I just don't see how either me or his dad will be able to get off of work to go. I'm glad you were able to help out in his class!

And about your outfit... you look amazing!! I absolutely love that top!

1. You look great in those heels and skinnies! Especially in the lovely sunlight.
2. One day he will realize that you are supermom and did it all just to make him do his happy dance :)

XO,
