Stitch Fix #2

I scheduled my second fix for this week.  It came today and I love it all.  I had Paul take some pics before we put the kids to bed (so my make-up's worn off and I look as tired as I feel).

All wrapped up like a pretty present.

Black and white print sundress

Turquoise top and black skinny pants

Striped top that also goes with the cardigan from my last fix.
In addition to these pieces, there was also a pair of earrings.  Once again, it was pricier than I would normally spend but I love the black pants (although I definitely need a cute pair of black wedges to go with them).  I had realized earlier today (before I got the box) that cotton-y skirts and dresses were probably going to be my go-to outfit for the summer, so the black print dress was perfect.  The turquoise top was made a bit strange, I guess to give it the cowl neck look.  It comes across a bit messy but I think that's part of the unique look, and it can be worn with jeans or a skirt too.  I love that I can wear the cardigan from the last shipment with the striped top.  It also means that I need to find some bottoms (skirt, maybe) that I'll be able to wear with both this striped shirt and also the one from before.  So this box was awesome!

Meal Plan Monday

It has been so long since I posted my menu but I do try to create one each week.  Some weeks are better than others but I have found that we eat out less and eat better when I have a plan even if we don't stick to it exactly.  This past week was terrible we ate out everyday, but it was the last week of preschool and I had been working (filling in for the director who was out for surgery).  There were lots of things that I let slide this week knowing that it was just temporary.  Now that work is over, I'm ready to get back into planning.  As we prepare to move, I'll also start looking at what I have in the freezer and pantry and try to use up as much as I can (so I have to pack and move less).  With that in mind, I've included breakfasts and lunches on school days in the planning this week.

Monday: Yogurt; Turkey Tortilla Roll Up; Sweet & Spicy Bacon Chicken
Tuesday:  Cereal; Pizza; Grandma's Choice (since I'll be out of town)
Wednesday: Waffles; Tuna Fishy Sandwich; Oven Tacos
Thursday: Hard Boiled Eggs; Corn Dogs; Apricot Stuffed Chicken
Friday: Oatmeal; Pizza or PBJ; Taco Pasta
Saturday: Tempura Chicken
Sunday: YOYO/CORN (you're on your own and clean out the refrigerator)

Here's a few pics I had of some recent meals/food:
Apricot Glazed Turkey Breast

Green Fruit Smoothie

Dinner at the Melting Pot

What I Wore May 15

The weather has been awesome and I've taken advantage and pulled out some sundresses.  This is my last week of work (yay!) so I'll be going back to my normal routine which will probably mean fewer dresses and skirts.

Pinterest Tuesday May 21st

I saw this idea on Pinterest several times but this link had a poem that you give to the teachers.

I love this idea but had to wait until now to implement it because the dollar store doesn't carry pool noodles in the winter time (not even in Texas).

WIWW May 1

Encountered a new issue this week with going back to work...not as much time to do laundry so I'm running out of clothes to wear.  Ha!

Cleaning house and doing laundry

Another day of work

Lots of errands

Work day, I think this needs a chambray shirt underneath

Another cold day for sweater, tights, and boots.

I ended up switching shoes after an hour because the pants were a little long for these flats.

Paired the Stitch Fix tank with a gray sweater I've had forever.
