I made a silent pact with myself to try to limit (limit, not eliminate because that would make no sense) alcoholic beverages during the week. I admit that mommy loves a drink at the end of the day. I also suggested to myself to slow down on shopping. It's a terrible mistake to plant these rules in my head because all I can think about is shopping and drinking.
On that note, I found some really cute weekend clothes for Mr. C at ON. I feel so selfless shopping for someone else. And the Mr. deserves some hip clothes too:)
I also treated myself to this tunic because they only had one in my size left (you know how that goes). FYI It's so much cuter in person.
I found the most perfect boots (aka, the right color, the right fit, the right price) at TJ Maxx. I had no choice but to buy them since my 3 year old equestrians got a hole in the zipper this week!
Aren't these cute too? I never wore flats until I became a mom (and twisted my ankle on my welcome mat while holding a baby, things change!)
I also had to get the boys real coats. Tennessee winters are chilly (although nothing like the old Pennsylvania winters from our early marriage days). Mr. C has always remarked that the fancy coats I get the boys don't really keep them warm and dry, they just look cute, and he had a point. So I found these at L.L.Bean and I'm really happy with them. They are ski worthy, waterproof, warm but not too bulky, and a classic navy. I considered Boden's version but they are only shower proof, not fully water resistant. I still always match the boys and will do so until they leave for college but this meant that I had to order my 5 year old a size that is technically smaller than what I wanted to order. But...LLB has an extra seam (called a growth cuff, very cool!) you can rip out to add an inch and a half to sleeve length, and that makes all the difference. The coat actually fits him perfectly.
Have y'all tried brownie brittle? It's quite yummy with cold milk (or coffee with Bailey's:)
