Loft Love

Oh Loft... how I love thee! What is not to love about a sale every single week, Mom-approved styles and pretty decent prices?

I did some serious closet purging last night because let's be real... I am not fitting these post-baby hips into some freshman year pants. Yep still had those. I am not a sentimental person in the way I hoard things due to a memory but dang I can talk myself into holding onto clothes I haven't worn in four+ years.

Loft - I would love for you to have a 40% off sale so I can snag all of these beauties. Our company just initiated a "dress for the day" policy where jeans are appropriate if your schedule allows. Well this has really messed up my closet full of pencil skirts and trousers... #firstworldproblems.

Thoughts on Thursday

It is Thursday... and this blog is still on the back burner. I love to read, write and share but time is not of the essence these days. Time is actually the most valuable resource I have come to learn. Although, not to be Negative Nancy, some exciting things are taking up my time. To bide some time (see what I did there), here are thoughts to get you through this Thursday... you are welcome :)

- My kid loves Bey... Single Ladies is her jam. This has escalated into listening to the song 3+ times a night while she twerks it out. It could be the single most hilarious thing I have seen, considering she is seventeen months old. Girl has rhythm and I think her dad is having visions of all the homecoming dances in his future.

- These sandals are divine.  I am on the hunt for an Easter dress that will be re-purposed into a wedding guest dress throughout April as well.  As you can tell that hunt is going great considering I am sharing shoes (insert sarcasm).

- I have discovered the Civil Wars thanks to Pandora only to find out they have broken up... ah the cruel irony.

- We took little Miss to the Children's Museum last weekend and gees the amount of kids. One would think children in the title would be a dead giveaway but holy birth control! There were hundreds of kids with some feeling a great need to sprint in every direction! I broke mom code and laid into another kid that almost plowed over MT. My inner Momma Bear stepped in before the knockdown happened. I did get a stank eye from the other mom but such is life and I have no regrets. We did, however, channel our inner farmer with an immense amount of time spent with a tractor and milking cow. Our next house may need some livestock and land to keep this little lady occupied.

dessert love.

If you are looking, there are some stellar Valentine lists floating around the interwebs. While I would love a pair of $300 shoes to grace my closet come February 14th, the hubs would laugh in my face... after a "Seriously Julie".

We have never really celebrated Valentine's Day but this momma would still love a pretty bouquet of flowers (hint, hint, cough, cough).

Although, the real way to my heart is a yummy dinner, glass of wine, no responsibilities and a good dessert.  I will settle for just the dessert and wine...this coming from the woman that is starting P90X on Monday (great timing). Here are a few favorites:
