Stitch Fix Reveal

It's been a long time since I have received a fix.  I just purged my closet of things I haven't worn in a year or things I wore because it was there even though I didn't like the way it fit anymore.  It's baffling to me how the body changes.  The number on the scale isn't that different than before I had JP and most things fit but tops are just so short.  Maybe it's style changes too, I kind of feel like if a top isn't at least mid rear end it's too short.

For this fix I requested tops with layering options for our upcoming trip to Disney World.  I pretty much left it at that because I've seen where people get so specific on notes and use the word 'no' and those end up being the specific items they get.  I had pinned a few things but not a ton.  Denise was my stylist and the note welcomed me back and referenced my Pinterest board a couple of times.  Here are the items I got:

Loveapella Pola Pocket Knit Top (S) - $44
Cosmic Blue Love Adrianne Distressed Boyfriend Jean (6) - $88





I love this top.  This is my style.  It's simple, casual and cute so you look put together.  It's a keeper


These jeans were just ok.  They were probably a little big.  They seemed to fit ok initially but I could tell that after a couple of hours of wearing they would be big and I'd spend 90% of the time wearing them hiking them up. I also didn't LOVE them or need them so for $88 I need to LOVE them. Returned.
























The style card suggested  pairing this shirt with white capri's.  I decided to try on a pair of shorts I haven't worn in a few years to see how they fit.  They fit fine, just maybe a little short for someone about to hit a certain milestone birthday this year ;)  Although who says age looks a certain way???


















Market & Spruce Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee (S) - $38



I really like this top.  It's a tad thin for the price but it fits good and can be styled with so many different color bottoms.  I love versatility.  It's a keeper.



















Loveapella Deanne Printed Maxi Skirt (M) - $58




I liked this skirt.  I'm just not a skirt wearer so I'm not spending $58 on something that might get worn once a year.  I also would have a hard time finding more things to wear it with because of the colors and patterns so I would have to specifically shop for tops to wear with it.  Again, I like things with more versatility.


From straight on this is not a flattering outfit.



















Kut From the Kloth Callie Denim Jacket (S) - $78

The price...yikes.  The fit...yes.  I had to think about this one for a couple of reasons.  First of all was the color.  You typically see jean jackets in the dark blue denim so I wasn't sure about it.  I also wasn't sure about the price and if I really needed it.  I do have a dark denim jean jacket but it's pretty old.  I answered those questions with why be like everyone else, get a jacket in a different wash than what everyone else has and the current one is pretty old so due for an update.  The fit...it just fits so good.  So, it's a keeper.

 The jacket totally changed how this outfit looked from a straight on point of view.





The style card had this skirt with a blue 3/4 sleeve shirt and a brown leather with white fur inner lining vest.  Even looking at the picture I'm not seeing this as a look for me ;)

Now I've made these more my looks.  Here I just added a pair of olive shorts and my Converse.








































I hope this review was helpful for those that have received these items and are looking to see them on a person or if you are looking for items to add to your Pinterest style board.

Mickey Mouse Birthday Party

To view items from this party or request an item visit my Welcoming Sentiments Etsy shop.

Another year has come and gone and JP is now 2.  Everyone told me it would go fast and I've noticed all along but it doesn't help slow it down at all!  That's why I love that I can be home with him so I can soak up all of these fun moments.

We have started to watch a little TV.  Sometimes I just need to get dinner cooked or something done and need his attention elsewhere.  It's life, and we shouldn't feel guilty about doing it a little.  I say that but still have that 'mom guilt' that I'm not paying attention to him.  Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is one of his favorites.  Mickey Mouse was his first unprompted 2 word phrase and Mickey Mouse House was his first unprompted 3 word phrase.  That only meant that we needed a Mickey Mouse birthday party.  This year I did do most everything for the party myself so I was happy about that.  We kept it small this year and once aga…

Growing my Etsy shop

I will slowly be adding items to my shop and will likely focus on downloadable printables.  I love crafting and hand making items for parties and things like that but I want time for that to be my own hobby and not having the only time I do it to be for 'work'.

JP has started pre-school already, I can't believe it!  It gives me a little time each day to get something done in peace.  It's just like when he used to nap but I don't have to stay home!  That may sound like I'm thrilled he's in school and part of me is.  He is so excited each day to go and comes out with a big smile saying he had fun at school today.  That makes me happy.  The first day was not good for me.  I held it together until I got back in the truck but then I cried.  Luckily I had scheduled a meeting that first day to keep my mind off of it so time passed and we were all good.  Now that I know he's happy I can be a little more excited to have some time back ;)

Monkey 1st Birthday

This post is very late but as my multitasking mind takes over I am now on my 3rd different thing that I'm doing on the computer besides what I sat down to do.

When planning his birthday party and theme I went with a general monkey theme.  We don't watch a lot of TV and really it's hard to tell what a 1 year old in really 'into'.  My cousin Beth with Beth Kruse Custom Creations designed my party printables.  I normally do this kind of thing on my own but there were just too many things going on in our lives at the time for me to add 1 more thing to my plate.  She has fabulous parties so I knew I was outsourcing to someone great!

I scoured Pinterest for food inspiration and was pretty pleased with what I found.
