Weight Loss Wednesdays

I lost my SD card for a bit and I had to go to Seattle Fashion week without my CAMERA! Grrr... (Runway show was OK. Gift bags were NOT so ok, just ads!)

It proves that I have hobbies outside of being a mediocre blogger and an even worse weight loser! Ha ha..

SO here is my revelation and promise to myself. I will move my body everyday because it is good for me. That's it. I will (try to)do it.

I would like the scale to move down, but it doesn't define me. So I am working on it...

With no SD card, I have been using my camera phone. It is actually way easier than uploading pics with my fancy camera, but not nearly as nice looking!

What is great about this outfit is that when I put it on, I FOUND MY SD CARD IN THE POCKET! See?!? It was a good day!

Dress: Gift (Thanks Jen)

Gotta Love Target!

I wanted this dress right when it came out, but didn't want to pay full price for it... (yes, cheap I know...) BUT Target ALWAYS marks these lines down, so I waited...

I found it just last week for 50% off! $17 dollars (or something like that!) YAY!

I didn't like the little string belt that came with it so I cinched it at the waist with a braided brown belt and wore the belt backwards. I decided that the Liberty of London print was "a whole lotta look" so I went with it tying the little string belt around my head to bring out my flower power.

All day long, I felt pretty. My long dress swishin'. My hair hippie-in'. When my sister (who is not into clothes like I am) saw me, even she wanted to embrace her inner flower child!
The only negative thing is that even though I LOVE Target, I still felt like everyone was looking at the dress thinking "oh I saw that at Target"... Is that so lame of me?
Do you ever feel that way? Like a million others could produce your look?
Dress: Liberty of London for Target
Belt: Roxy

P.S. HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEANIE! I heart your face! :)

Happy Friday!

This dress is really pouffy after the belt line... In the pics, you can see it poking out of my coat! It's hard to call it a dress as I wouldn't wear it without leggings! (My booty would fall out! :)
But it makes for the perfect 1st grade teacher uniform.
I sit on the floor with kids, I crawl, I squat, I dance...I wear a lot of leggings to work.
Does the activity at your job dictate how you dress? I was just wonderin....

Have an amazing weekend! Enjoy the sun! (It is actually sunny in the NW! YAY!)

Tegan and Sara...

Watch out! Crazy eyes will get ya! I was trying to take a photo like the cuties at Have A Cute Day. Epic fail. Oh well.My bestie and I left town and headed out to Portland for the last stop on the Tegan and Sara tour. The concert was amazing! Those girls (twins at that!) have a wicked set list and an even sicker personal style! The theater was packed with uber hipster haircuts and the most cutting edge slouch skinnies with SUPER EXPENSIVE Onitsuka tigers! An androgynous look that I love and can NEVER pull off. (not with these hips...they don't lie!)
My bestie and I have been friends since we were umm....6 years old? Something ridiculous like that. She has kiddos and we barely ever get to go away together.
So we grabbed the oldest daughter and her friend and took them with us!
Damn. If I didn't know any better, I would think those cheekbones were implants! (I know better because they are on my face! Ha ha!)
Check out Tegan and Sara. And LOVE it!

Nice to see you all!

Class Picture Day!

Class Picture Day!Captured forever in over 20 kids' first grade memory books!
I hope that I smiled OK, that my hair stayed normal and my kiddos didn't do anything extremely odd in the picture.
Then again, I WANTED to do something really odd...
Because I think that it would have been super funny for the teacher to be the one making a face.
Like this...

Dress: Ross ($10.99!)
Jacket: Tulle
Necklace: Macys
