wiww - and more random thoughts

I can't believe it's Wednesday already.
I blinked 5 times and the week passed me by.
Or maybe it's my non-existent memory..
I don't quite remember what I did this week.
I know some house cleaning got done {although I'm sure my husband may argue that point}
and the kids were fed and bathed..
and then ..blank.

Totally random:
I need to find out when the we change our clocks back.
I believe it's sometime in October but I'm not sure.
I'm so excited for it..it's one of the highlights of my year. Seriously.
{Even though it means winter is that much closer to arriving}.
Oh well, I'll deal with the cold weather if it means I get an extra imaginary hour in my day.

Here are some outfit pictures I was able to take..

Running errands and housework.
I usually wear this pencil skirt with some wedges or shoes that give me some height but like I've said
before.. I'm learning to embrace my shortness :)
In this case, the priority was comfort.

Shirt: Gap, Skirt: Forever 21, Shoes: Old Navy, Earrings: Target
  
I hosted a housewife party for the girls in my MOMS club..
Oh, it was so much fun..
More to come later about this little fun party.


My apron-that-I-wish-was-a-dress.
It makes cooking slightly more bearable.
<sigh>
And that drink.. it's a MOM-osa.
A non-alcoholic mimosa.. genius, isn't it?!
It was DEELISH.

Apron: Pier 1, Shirt: H&M, Jeans: Express, Shoes: Marshalls {old}

My friend came over to take some pictures
for a little project I was working on.
And of course, I bribed her so that she would take an outfit picture for me.
Dinner in exchange for some pictures.
I, personally, think I got the better end of the deal
but I didn't tell her that.

Housework and errands {I think}

Dress & necklace: Target {gifted}, Shirt: Forever 21, Shoes: Old Navy, Ring & hat: H&M


And right after this picture,
I walked into the house
and returned back to reality:
5 hungry kids {3 were my own} who were waiting for dinner
and a house that looked like Toys 'R' Us had puked in it.

Linking up to What I Wore Wednesday at the Pleated Poppy!

I love your "poses" for your photos. I need to find time to do something more than remembering to take my photo before I go to bed in my dark house.
