Happy New Year*

*Oops. Its like January 24th. Sorry about that! The luxury of having minimal followers and not getting paid to do this means I can take a month vacation.

Here is a quick recap of the past month!

Christmas Parties Galore! We had a fabulous time in Asheville with the entire family. I'm kicking myself for not getting a huge group shot (my favorite thing to do) but we were too busy enjoying ourselves.

NYE in Raleigh with my BFF and Roommate from College. Her son is ADORABLE!

January Playdates...we need somewhere to use up the energy these kids have!

And my resolutions. Resolutions are pretty stupid but I have promised myself to try to live healthier in 2013.

1. I need to get 30 minutes of exercise 4 days a week.
2. Make sure I'm taking Fish Oil and Red Yeast Rice every day.
3. Less Soft Drinks (Still failing at this)
4. Less Alcohol (Still really failing at this)
5. Spend more time phone free. I'm attached to my phone and starting at 5 each day I'm going to put it in the Kitchen and not use it again until 8. 3 hours of untethered son and husband time.
6. I really want to go to Church more. With Football season ending I have no excuse not to get out of the house on Sundays.
7. Be more involved in the Community. When I lived in Florida I was in Junior League, the West Palm 100, Young Friends of the Norton...etc...etc. I haven't joined a single thing in Charlotte besides Young Friends of the Mint (which I believe expired). I'm not sure about the Junior League with my work schedule but I would love to volunteer for a cause that means something to me. Researching ways on how I can get involved.
8. Live with LESS. I am in the process of decluttering my home and life. It feels amazing to throw so much stuff away and I hope by this summer to be done!

So long story short I'm back! I'm trying to live a cleaner healthier life this 2013 and also promise to post more!

Rainy Day Outfit

What we are doing right now. (HA!) I asked him to take my picture and he locked me out of the house. Hilarious M, hilarious.

So what are you wearing today? I get this question all the time. (Stop sexting me Brett Favre!) Mostly because of my insane fashion sense, but honestly because M cannot believe I leave the house like I do. I work from home so why get dressed up for Daycare right? I'm pretty sure the other Moms either think I'm homeless or an Muppet Olsen twin.

I wanted to share with you what I was wearing today in this bleak dreary rainy weather that we have had since Monday. And if you Pin it or tweet it please make sure you link it back to my blog so everyone knows where this stellar contribution came from.

Green Long sleeve 100% cotton Pi Beta Phi Christmas Cocktail 1999 shirt (I have the pictures upstairs...I think it put us on probation for the bathroom incident), pink polka dot Gap Pajama Pants from 1997 (similar here), Cashmere socks (that's right), LL Bean Boots, Monogram necklace from here, Red hair by Kristen here, and no shame courtesy of working from home, lousy weather, and lack of sleep (thanks two year old molars)

And my rainy day accessories? Blue Marmot PreCip Jacket I bought when I moved to Florida in 2003 (no longer waterproof) want another one but not wild about colors.. Black & Gold umbrella from Deb Season as an invite to a party. (Also seen at our Wedding). And just in case you want to know, underneath this sensational getup is this.
