Happy Easter from my family to yours! We went to church this morning and now we're off to a family gathering where there will be a MEGA egg hunt for the kids, the college kids and the 20 year old set. It's wet out today, so we'll see how many people wind up muddy!

My husband informed me this morning that he purchased Taylor Swift concert tickets for one of her August concerts in Chicago so we can take Kira and let her scream her head off for an evening. When he was trying to describe where our seats are located he actually said to me, "Think of the layout of a football field..." I stopped him right there and said, "Think of who you are talking to because I have no idea how to equate that to anything." Sad, but true.
As I was taking the shots for today's blog, everyone wanted a piece of me. Kira was in the bathroom screaming for me, the dog wanted a milkbone and kept getting into the shots and Dave was talking to me. It takes all of 3 minutes to take these pictures. 3 minutes.

We're getting ready to hunker down for a House of Anubis marathon in our house, so I'm not going to say much today!

This is another outfit I've had ready to go for a while, but haven't gotten around to wearing. I hunted all around in the fall for a mustard skirt because I just had to have one, purchased this, and then it sat in my closet until today. Some may say I have too many clothes, but I just think of it as having many options to chose from.

I've had this outfit in the hopper for a while now, but haven't gotten around to wearing it. The blazer has been hanging on my closet door for well over a month now. It's been so gloomy, slushy and wet in Ohio lately that I really needed something more springy in my outfit to perk me up. I was really pleased with the result!
Kira is now playing Spring soccer and we had the first parent meeting tonight. Looks like we'll now only have one night a week with nothing going on. I'm not sure what we're going to do when she goes to college because she is our social life!

I had my hair colored and highlighted over the weekend and so far, I'm not too happy with the color. It's a little too dark and with my skin tone, I'm looking pretty vampiric. I'm also having a very very bad hair day and didn't realize it was as bad as it was until I looked at these pictures. I know the color will tone down in about a week, so I'll just have to be patient and wait it out.

I didn't post anything yesterday because I was getting my hair done and decided to wear sweats all day so I wouldn't have to worry about any errant blobs of dye staining my clothes. When I walked out yesterday morning, my husband asked "Are you leaving the house at all today?" I thought the question was odd because prior to following fashion blogs, my weekend attire was often more suited to the more comfortable side. I guess it shows that I've been dressing a little better lately!

Why is it that your hair looks completely whacked when you schedule a hair appointment and then the day before the appointment, your hair decides to behave and look good? I think it is a conspiracy. Nevertheless, I'll be spending a chunk of tomorrow getting my hair colored, highlighted and cut. Take that hair!

Kira named my blog tonight because she said my sweater looked like the sea and the bubbles create a party atmosphere.
I actually swiped this outfit idea from Boden USA's website. I bought the shirt there and had the rest of the components in my closet to create this outfit. It's a bit matchy with the shoes, but I received a lot of compliments on it today!

My shirt reminds me of my grandma's couch, except her couch was brown with gold foil instead of green. Her couch also had a plastic slip cover on it and we weren't allowed sitting on it. The blazer is neon neon neon yellow and I think the two paired together scream Spring! I didn't notice it until I got to work, but I buttoned my top buttons wrong this morning. I wish the mirror would tell you these things before it lets you go out in public. Oh well!
