It's Been Nice Knowing You

Button-up:  Jones New York, thrifted
Sweater: Target
Belt:  Thrifted
Capris:  LOFT, gifted
Shoes:  Talbots, gifted

Please excuse the cryptic post title and the fact that I will not be discussing fashion today.  Yes, thank you, my outfit was comfy and I love it.  Now, for more important things.

As of today, I am the mother of a 5-year-old.  Our oldest turns 5 today (and, technically, he's not 5 until 4:01 pm).  It's so sad and exciting at the same time.  Now!  For the real kicker.  For his birthday, he wants to go camping.  Can I get a big 'UGH'?  Tomorrow, we're packing up the car and heading out west to go camping in the mountains.  I'm pretty sure I'm going to die from whatever can get you in the woods -- mosquitoes, bears, west nile virus, three whiny kids* ... oh, wait, there's actually going to be five kids.

It's a whole family event.  Three cabins, five camp sites, and a TON of my hubby's family.  There will either be strength in numbers or no one will notice when I'm plucked from the group by a bear looking for a snack.

Like I said, it's been nice knowing you.  Over and out.

*in case you can't tell, I'm not the camping type.  like i told a friend yesterday --- "i like going outside, i'm just not outdoorsy."  i'm hoping to be surprised and end up loving it.


  1. good luck camping! i personally hope you don't get eaten by a bear! (you should know it's very unlikely)

  2. This quite made me laugh as I'm really not looking forward to camping myself this year...

  3. oh and congrats on lasting 5 years as a mom! lol...and happy birthday to your little guy. Our son turned four last week and I was amazed that we all made it to four lol. No it's been a blast and he's such a sweet heart.

    1. Well, congratulations on making it so far, haha! That's so sweet!

  4. Really nice outfit :)

    Hope you'll visit me :)
    Kisses, Elly

  5. Love the layers on top and your hair looks adorable! Cute as always :)

    Have fun camping! I personally love camping and I wish a 5 yr old would force me into going more often! Have a blast... and wear bug spray :D

    1. Oh yes! Bug spray is high on the priority list! And thanks!

  6. Okay, this is one inspiring post!!
    I hope we can be blog friends - following on Bloglovin!!


  7. Yeah that was kind of a freaky post title, Rebecca. You have not checked in in three days but I'm going to assume camping did not get the better of you after all... :)

  8. In non-camping news.. Cute outfit! I love finding cute wardrobe pieces at the thrift stores! :)
