Another Beginning's End...

For most, today is just the end of 2012...but, for me today is also my last day oat work.  I have spent the last decade doing this job, developing a love of advertising all all that comes with it, learning and spending time with the best boss out there.

2013 starts my journey as a stay at home mom..."stay at home" is such a misnomer...when I am not working, most of the time spent with the kids is not really at home.  I see a future of school dropoff/pickup, driving to activities and running errands... I think I am going to start referring to myself as a "in the car with the kids mom"...

The whole not working thing is something I still haven't totally wrapped my head around, but I am trying my hardest not to let it consume me...own me...


May I present the final work outfits of 2012 and beyond...


 Jacket-Nordstrom's/Pants-Zara/Booties-Steve Madden/Necklace-House of Gemmes



Skirt-Target/Blazer Gap/Boots-Kenneth Cole/Necklace-Black Sheep


And today...the final day at work...the final day of 2013...




Skirt-Calvin Klein/Vest-Fox's/Jewelry-H&M, Hot Momma, The Limited

Today's outfit is just a hodge podge of goodness.  The only tights that were clean were brown...first skirt I saw in my closet that went with brown (too bad it is the wrong season for floral cotton).  To counter act the light skirt, I decided upon the furry vest...hmmm...interesting choice...I am just so sick of a tank and cardigan!  I thought the t-shirt underneith was black...until I got to work...navy matches too...I guess!  

I have no idea what I am going to wear tonight for our exciting New Year's plans of dinner and a movie...that would require forethought, of which I have none...the boys must have hidden that trait somewhere...along with my sanity!

With hope and love from my corner of the internet, I close the chapter of 2012 and welcome 2013 with open arms...


Bring it on 2013!

It has been wonderful following along with Not Just Mom this year! Thank you for all the inspiration. It sounds like there are some changes coming in 2013, but I am sure it will be great either way. Enjoy NYE with the family!
