The Least Complicated...

My motto for this Monday...


Too many little boys sleeping in my bed because of the storm makes for a tired Monday!


So, because I had a meeting with my Milwaukee client Friday, I had to take a break in my silent protest of work changes and dress up.  I decided on colorful corporate...




Skirt, cardigan-Target/Shoes-Lori's/Jewelry-H&M, DIY, stole earrings from mom

Weekend update...Pretty good weekend in my little corner of Illinois.  Saturday, the boys went with Papa to Northwestern Football spring practice.  They had so much fun...going on the the field to meet the players and toss the football around.  Since I had some time to myself, I decided to get a massage (I had money left on a gift card from last mother's day), have lunch with mom (great vege burger and sweet potato fries) and shopping at the craft store (currently making tons of new bracelets).  On Sunday, after a nice nap and trip to Target, the boys and I went to my friend house.  Her fish just had babies she wanted to give away, so the boys each got to pick out two new fish for Jack's aquarium...they were very excited!! Of course, I wore my new jeans all weekend...love them, and I am beginning to get used to casual meaning pants and jeans...  It was a pretty low key weekend...just what we needed since the hubs had the flu and I was wiped out from the week.

Time to mingle...over at the Monday Mingle...I am linking up!

You look beautiful! I'm sorry there was so much sickness going around. It sounds like you've bounced back though! :)

It sounds like a wonderful weekend! And I love how you started the week of, because that blue pencil skirt just won a place in my heart. I really love it with the brown hues. You look wonderful.

And I LOVE that saying at the top. "Keep calm and make coffee?" Sounds exactly like the start to each of my days. Hah!

That pencil skirt is super cute. I forgot my coffee at home this morning, which is such a Monday thing to do.

Love your colorful work look, and I feel that way about coffee but have been trying to limit myself because of the baby...aaaahhhhh!!

PS, I used to get so excited about getting a new fish when I was little too! I wonder if Beaux will want a fish, I hope so, bc they are at least easy to care for!! LOL!
