Golden Love

This week is Spring Break and you know what that means. No school all week. Every year during this time our girls go and spend a few days with their grandparents. It gives Ross and I the chance to have a few date nights and share some one-on-one time together. It also gives the kids the opportunity to get spoiled rotten. They don't hate it. 

We spent Saturday night at Rodeo Austin. It was straight up nasty, rainy and freezing. There was no way in heck I was wearing anything but rain boots. I was a little bummed that I didn't get to slip on my cowboy boots, but it just wasn't happening. We look forward to this time each year. It's hard to beat carnival food (chili cheese fries covered in sour cream and jalapenos), smokey BBQ cook-offs, Ferris Wheel rides, rodeo cowboys and the Josh Abbott Band (that's who performed). There was no way we were going to let the weather damper our plans, so we sucked it up and got a little muddy along the way. It was 100% worth it. Sunday morning was a different story. We lost an hour of sleep, had to get up early and drive two hours for a family reunion. Long day. 

Sunday evening we took full advantage of not having to pay for a sitter and headed out for a Chinese food fest. Once we snapped out of our food coma and still lethargic on the sofa, we did what all old married couples do, we watched a movie without any interruptions (ahem, breaking up sisterly bickering). Sweet bliss.

In other news, I have pink eye in BOTH eyes. What in the world? So, there your go, the reasoning behind sunglasses when quite frankly, it wasn't really sunny out. Happy new week to me!

I love this outfit and can't believe your Payless find! Spring Break is early for your kiddos...my son goes to year round school and will have his break in 3 weeks for 3 weeks.

Boo to the pink eye! I had that in both eyes when I got it from my son. It's not fun at all.

I am so obsessed with this skirt and outfit!! You look like a walking Kate Spade ad! Gahhh, I hope your pink eye heals soon - that's the worst :(

The heels are super cute. Still can't believe you found them at Payless. My mom and I hit up Ross this weekend and found some cute items. My mom has been finding tons of cute clothes at Ross lately. She got some Guess wedges for $29.

Hot mama! I love this outfit!! You rocked it girl!! I actually just saw those pumps at Payless over the weekend, but my size was sold out :(

I'm sorry... you have what? Pink eye in BOTH eyes and you still managed to pull this off like you did? You are just THAT fabulous and I don't hate it one bit. Hope your eyeballs get better soon, though I'm quite partial to the color pink.

All That Glitters said...

Your shoes are fantastic. I actually stalked them on Instagram last night and almost bought them.....then I decided I needed to try them on...so we'll just have to see if the Payless by me has them in my size:)

Linda Cassidy said...

Such a fun outfit ( and so not, what was the word that I will not repeat...) You always continue to surprise and delight with you fashion outfits. So sorry about the pink eye, I had it in both once, what a horrid experience.

At least you have these fantastic sunglasses to cover your double pink eye. This is one of my absolute favorite outfits I've seen you in. The length of the skirt and waistline are totally flattering, the t-shirt dresses down the blazer and heels and the color of the blazer + striped heels are an AMAZING combination. Waita style!
