It's Friday! Did we all survive the week? The past few days with Mr. Kole have been an experience to say the least. I'll have to tell you all about it but I need to wait until I've had a chance to recover. So instead I'm going to go to a happier place. A place where my little boy doesn't throw massive temper tantrums in the middle of Target tossing fishy crackers all over isle 11. A place where he doesn't pull my hair and scream when I pick him up inspiring all sorts of fun looks from busy shoppers. A place where toothbrushes go directly into your mouth, instead of dipped in toilet water first (oh yes - let's all just take a minute to gag - I sure did. Then I scooped him up and threw him in the tub. As if bathing him would somehow wash away what I had just witnessed). FOR THE LOVE! I am exhausted.
I drove by Darci's house to take her some cookies last night (Darci is a close friend and her fourth and last child is Kole's age). My kids were in the car so her kids jumped in the car. The older kids were so hyper - laughing and acting crazy. Kole was screaming in his car seat. Her little boy came charging out of the house totally naked (he has learned to take off his diaper) and was running circles around the car. We were laughing so hard! We just have to laugh or we will cry. We decided that as soon as our boys are both potty trained we are going on a trip together. Somewhere far away. With no children in sight. Any other toddler moms out there who want to join us?
That is the happy place I am ready to escape to after this week. But since I have a ways to go before Kole is potty trained, I guess escaping to Fashion Friday will have to do. :)
We had a lot of Christmas parties to attend last week so I wore my black New York dress to one of them.
And I bought this fun dress at The Limited for another event. I needed something dressy/classy for one of Kenny's client parties and this dress was perfect!
They're right. This style is flattering. The dark skirt is slimming and because of the high waist, your waist appears smaller. I'll take two of them! :)
I wore the black sparkly Banana Republic headband to the party...
Getting ready to head to the party. Someone could tell mom was about to leave.
(one of her favorite Gymboree shirts because it comes complete with accessories!)
and Ellie whose main focus is comfort. She would wear sweats or pajamas every day if I let her.
This shirt is actually not itchy. It's really soft on the inside and I think it looks great with black heels. I wore it with my dark skinny jeans and I liked the outfit, but it looked a little dark. I think I need to buy some cream slacks or something to go with the top. Kole agrees.
But lately I've been having fun wearing some of my necklaces. I love both of these with this shirt and go back and forth between the two of them every time I wear it.
Of course I can also wear my yellow scarf I showed off in my last Fashion Friday post which you can purchase here. I love making an old shirt feel new by adding some fun accessories!
Wondering what Kole is usually up to while I take Fashion Friday pictures? He's either sweeping the floor with his broom.
Or tearing apart the toilet paper.
And because it has become a December tradition, I'm going to share our family's favorite Christmas photo in honor of my sister's birthday this week.

Happy Birthday Car!!
I guess my mom can relate.
Have a great weekend everyone!
