mama style

it felt good to be able to get myself put together enough to snap some pictures before work.

it is so hard being a working mama and it's taking its toll on me emotionally.  so i just have to put it out there that i feel like i have no time to put a 100% effort in anywhere.  i'm stressed at work wanting to do more but can't, not being there for my son all the time, and my poor hubby gets the shaft every time, not to mention the house is a disaster and i can't bear it some days.  i have this ocd tendency where everything has to be put in it's place and the mess and disorganization is driving me up the wall.

i can barely manage to put matching clothes on each morning that are modest enough for my liking and yet blog worthy...hence no fashion posts lately.  i'm trying to get up before work to work out at least and i've managed one day. 

i didn't mean to invite you to my pity party today but thanks for coming anyways.

 how do working mamas fit it all in without staying up all night and getting up at the crack of dawn?!

mama style

just another day at work today and i had like 5 minutes to take these quick crappy shots while caleb was waking up, ready for me to come get him.  not the most flattering, but i've been busy getting beat up by my 17 month old to do much of anything. 

yea, i said beat up.  he is into hitting lately, himself as well if we tell him no.  he's really trying this mama's patience.

no jumpy

caleb, you got a jumpy for christmas and we were so excited to see you use it.  dada worked for a couple hours to get the thing blown up because his pump didn't work fast enoug, so he drove all the way to nana and poppy's house for their pump, then we found a hole, grrrr!

finally it was finished and we put you in.....
wait for it, wait for it...

ta da!  you hated it and cried immediately.  we were so bummed.  we have all the balls that go inside of it for a ball pit.  so more work for dada to deflate it and put it away.  i guess we will try it again this summer out in the back yard.

sushi sunday

a new sushi place opened up not too far from where we live and we were dying to check it out.  caleb really enjoyed the seaweed salad surprisingly, and he loved the noodles, musical chop sticks weren't bad either.

for caleb

you watch mama put her makeup on every weekend and you pretty much know how to do it yourself.  you love to sneak in to the bathroom and steal my makeup brushes and mimic me.  here you are making dada and i so pretty.

with love,

mama style

this dress was a nice score from my clothing swap.  i paired it with a belt, sweater tights, and suede boots.  i was rushing this morning taking these, so pardon my dumb ass look on the second photo.  this dress is really comfy and easy to wear.  i think next time i will pair it with jeans perhaps, ballet flats and no belt with a white cardi.
