Ryan is veeeerrry inquisitive. Although he has not started to crawl on his knees, he is very good at the "military crawl" And he gets into plenty of things around the house. Mommy and Daddy have "baby-proofed" most of the rooms.

Yesterday and Today : Half Day

I really wish I could come up with snappy titles for my blog posts, but usually they are corny and boring.
TODAY: I have a half day at work. So I went with a casual look. I have been trying to wear this sweater/shirt since before Ryan was born.  I bought it but I had no idea how I was going to wear it.  Its perfect for a warm March day.... Spring is coming!
shirt-JCPenney; jeans-AshleyStewart; necklace-NY&Co, bracelet-gift from BookClub member
YESTERDAY: I had no idea how nice it was outside until I got off of work at 5:30p. It was lovely... I wanted to run home and take Ryan out for a walk... (really, did I just say go for a walk... this "mommy" thing will make you into a new and different person, lol ... i usually try to avoid outdoors at all cost #allergiesSUCK) .. But when I got home, his lovely Auntie Londa was there holding him and "we" were all smiles, lol. Gotta Love Auntie TIME!

Lunch Date

So I decided to grab a bite to eat with BFF Court before I started a day of running errands.

This is another shirt that BFF Court got me for my birthday.  So I wore it to lunch with her... but this outfit looks oddly similar to what I wore on my birthday, lol... it is a different outfit -I promise!

So we drove up and back in one day... yup!
It was a rough drive but it was all worth it to see the love and happiness on the face of the "Bride to Be"!

My sorority sister Robyn met me at my house for the ride up to NYC.  We met two other sorors at the park and ride lot for our trip.  I spent a gazillion dollars on snacks for the ride!
... and look who snuck in the pictures with their mouth open, lol.. but Auntie Robyn was all smiles.

And the sorors with the lovely "Bride to Be"!

That Special Day ... Every Year

Happy 35th Birthday to MEEEE!
I had a nice list of things to do today ... and I actually got most of it knocked out..

Hubby and I played hookie from work today because we already had a babysitter.. so its a perfect opportunity to celebrate my birthday, together.

First up was Brunch with Hubby at Miss Shirley's

On our way home to get Hubby's cellphone that he left, I tried to cross off another item on my list - "buy new pair of sneakers" we stopped at the sneaker store but they didnt have much that I liked, and the one pair i liked was to big. BUT - I did buy a pair of sneakers for Ryan, lol. We got him a pair of little Jordans. Cute!

Next up we went to the bank - I save all the dollar bills with the letters in my name and then on my birthday _ I take my cash to the bank! This year I had $350 .. NICE!!!

Then we went to the car dealer - the goal was to test drive a new car.. but I had a good mind to buy it if i liked it.. and well, i liked it - so its MINE!!! Now since I had to settle for a "man car" (black truck with black leather interior - nothing girlie about that) I need to "trick" it our in a girlie way.... Im already looking at getting a custom steering wheel and maybe a bling liscence plate (but then Hubby wont even want to drive the truck, lol - so we'll see)

We left the car dealer - pimping!!! ... and went to Happy Hour at Flemings Steakhouse with a few of my family and friends.. a fun evening. Hubby and I were home by 8:30p

Great Birthday Celebration .. Im sure there will be other events this month!

 top-Marshalls (on vacation); belt-FashionBug; jeans-LaneBryant (loooove these!!!); necklace-LB

Hubby was in the corner - "counting my cheese" while I took a few pics for the blog.
And yes, the baby has taken over the middle of the living room floor with his play area :)

And this is my new ride - 2008 Saab 9-7x

Back to work

Work flow.
 shirt-LB; cardi-FashionBug; pants-?
I grabbed this shirt out of my closet and thought I would put it on since I never really wear it. After a day in this shirt.. I think I remember why I dont wear it. Its not very flattering. So I added the cardigan, but Im not sure that helped much. Not to mention that the sleeves are tight on my arms. Its just a mess, and it needs to go into the giveaway bag. Looks nice in theory - but not in "my" reality, lol

Bucket List Item - DONE!

Today I went to the Gun Range.  I have wanted to go to the range for some time now, and since my birthday is approaching I decided to check off one of my bucket list items.

Hubby asked me to take off my stilettos and put on more practical shoes for the gun range. I did :)

I loooooooved the gun range. I cant wait to go back. I shot a Glock 9mm, a SigSauer 9mm, Glock 40caliber, and the best of the evening was - AR-15 (9mm).  After shooting these guns, I actually contemplated getting one. Im still on the fence about purchasing, but I will definitely go back again.  Next time, I think I will try a few more smaller petite guns like 22s or 38s.  I'd like to try something with a little less kick back and the Glock with the 40 caliber bullets, was the top of the line for me on fire power!!

 Yes, I see the target

Bucket List Item Complete - check!!

And so it begins ...

... the Birthday Celebration!!!
Today is the first day of my birthday month and its gonna be exciiiiiting!!
sweater and scarf-elloqui; skirt-Burlington; bracelet-gifted from mom
... and Im fully prepared to enjoy!

I put this outfit together because I got this scarf from elloqui, but im really not pleased with how the scarf looks.  I think that it was the wrong scarf, lol. It doesnt look anything like what I thought it would look like. 

Id surely like to know any ideas on how to incorporate this scarf into my wardrobe.
