Weekend Recap

Friday started off not great, I was sleeping soooo good and I knew as soon as I woke up something wasn't right. My stupid pos iPhone turned itself off during the night and my alarm didn't go off, which meant no gym time. Any other time I wake up right before it goes off, but not the one time it reboots. Ugh.

Ah well, Madison {aka Twilight Sparkle as she wants to be called now} was happy to see me and insisted she wear chevron like her mama :)

Her pants are Old Navy and my top is Kiki La Rue.

After work I had soccer, I signed up to play on a co-ed team which is close to my house. I also love that I can bring the kid, she had fun and made some new friends.

Saturday I hit the gym for Step/ Turbo and Body Pump, I haven't been to BP in a few weeks due to getting in some long runs and my half. It pretty much kicked my ass, my arms were SHAKING, the new bicep track is killer.

The afternoon was spent shopping with Twilight Sparkle, my Mom, and sister. We were doing family pics on Sunday and I really wanted to do navy blue and yellow colored clothing. My Mom thought yellow pants would be cute, I was not on board, usually light colored skinnies really make my thighs look horrible. We went to Dillards and I saw a cute pair, perfect length and color so I tried them on. I didn't even look at the price tag because I was trying to corral the kid, she likes to play with the mannequins :)  We headed down to the shoe department and I found the BEST flats, Gianni Bini. OMG they are so cute and sooooo comfy, where have they been all my life??  I'm dying for some of their heels now, I may have a new obsession!

I go to check out and the lady was all, that's 230 bucks, at first I thought I misheard her so I just paid and checked my receipt on the way out. Yeah those cute yellow pants were over a 100 bucks, I'm  not keeping them even though they are adorable. I may love to shop, but I just don't pay that for one pair of pants.

The top I'm wearing is Kiki La Rue and I LOVE it, the buttons down the back are so perfect and it's longer so it covered my booty.

Saturday night I went with Brandi to her Boudoir Photo Shoot, I didn't do any pics, but I had a chance to meet some readers and it was really a LOT of fun!! These girls were SMOKIN' in their outfits and we had a great time hanging out {half naked} and then heading next door for some Mexican food {aka skinny ritas}.

Top is from Fash Forward
Sunday I finally broke down and bought another Shark. Remember months ago when mine broke?? Yeah, I haven't washed my floors since then, yikes. I wanted to go with another brand, but that's all they had at Home Depot and I just didn't have the energy to shop around.

At least I have a good helper :) However she was a pain during pictures, she has this fake smile where she scrunches up her face and her eyes are closed. Ugh. I hope we got a few decent ones because she wasn't having any of it.

I bought her a blue and white dress, but she cried for half and hour to wear this one so we did a few shots in it too. My life is nothing but compromises anymore!
Ah well, gotta pick your battles with the toddlers.

Happy Monday!


  1. Can't wait to see the family pics!

  2. Oh my gosh I literally laugh out loud every time I read "Twilight Sparkle"

  3. Truth about picking your battles with kids:) sucks that your alarm didnt go off. Horrible way to start the day. Looks like you had a great weekend though.

  4. The yellow pants are totes awesome!

    My 5 year old informed me on Thursday that she was bitten by a vampire at preschool & she is no longer Abbie. She is now Rosie the vampire. She has even convinced her teacher to write Rosie on her "school work"

  5. I love the yellow skinnies and navy shirt and flats! I swear, you get more beautiful with every picture you take! LOL! Glad you had a good weekend!!

  6. Oh my gosh, Twilight Sparkle is hilarious! Where do kids come up with these things? Your outfit for pictures was gorgeous, but I don't blame you for taking the pants back. I'm such a cheapskate when it comes to clothes anyway.

  7. Love your outfits - I'm with you, though, I'd definitely take back those pants. I'd obsess over everything I COULD have spent the money on. They're super cute, though!

  8. My daughter wanted to be called DJ Sparkles for a long time. Glad that is over. Love those shoes.

  9. Love the flats, just added them to my cart!! SCORE :) The yellow pants look great but I would take them back too, I will pay that for jeans but not pants... Looks like a great weekend, hope your week is easy and flies by.

  10. 1. Love those shoes!
    2. Those pants are gorgeous on you, but holy crap that's expensive! I might, MIGHT, would spend that on a pair of jeans that make my ass look amazing. But you can wear the same pair of jeans all the time...ok, I wear the same jeans all the time :/ It'd be pretty obvious if one wore the same pair of colored pants everyday though. I'm with you; take those babies back! (But dang they look good!)
    3. Twilight Sparkle looks adorable in her pink dress and I'm sure y'all got some great pictures :)

  11. Oh goodness, Twilight Sparkle is just like my 4 year old "Mad dog"...I've had to implement a rule where she can pick 3 outfits FOR THE DAY, put them in a bin and only change into those 3 outfits during the day. Toddlers and their clothes! Worse than us :) LOVE your flats too!!

  12. LOVE the shoes. If you want yellow pants for keeps, give these from Old Navy a try.


    I was really impressed with the fit.

  13. I just love Miss M's new nick name :)
    I seen you post a picture on facebook, your family is so adorable and so photogenic. Did Oliver cooperate for ya ;) ??

  14. Oh Skinny Meg, you should have talked to me a long time ago...Gianni Bini are the ONLY shoes I buy. You should see my closet, it is full of green boxes. I bet they will not be your last pair :)

    Not So Skinny Meg :) (aka meggymac on instagram :) )

  15. Wow, I did not think your arms could look any better, but look at them!! Love the shoes Madison is 'trying on'! Too bad those yellow pants are so $$$$$ cuz they look adorable on you! Hope the pics turn out great! Love Madison's pink dress you looks too cute!

  16. Love the yellow pants but no way would I pay 100 either!

  17. OMG You look amazing in those yellow skinnies!!!!
