Jumpsuit: Take 2 Navy & Hat

It was the last day of 2nd grade for my youngest boys!! How did we get here? And since I'm determined to find a style that suits me in this jump suit (no pun intended), I bring you Take 2!  In fact, I'm wearing this baby right now - without the extra layer. Wohoo! I look forward to sharing how that turned out with you soon. (Though I will give you a break and post some other outfits in between.)

This ensemble came together when I decided the hair was beyond saving and only a hat would work. I like the way the greens complemented each other, while the navy brand pulled the outfit together. The rest was a quick pull of accessories and I was ready to go.

 Outfit Breakdown
Jumpsuit: GAP/Button Up: LOFT(Old)/Shoes: Nordstrom Rack (Are you seeing a pattern here?)/Purse: Amazon/Jewelry: Premier Designs (yet another pattern)

Again, the jumpsuit is so comfortable. Again, I fight with the top portion continues. Do I want to show breasts? Do I want to show braw straps? Neigh, I say!

Here's another peek at Style 1...

Which one is your favorite??

Cupcake Adventures With Splat Cakes N Such

There was no question as to who would get my free cupcake today! This sweet teacher just completed her first year of teaching and she did a fabulous job. My boys loved her and she was patient, kind and motivating.  I had to bring a few extras for those others who played a role in making our life richer at AES.

Today's cupcake of choice was called Black-N-Tan, which is the chocolate version of the their Salted Carmel. I grabbed a few extra for those who added to Evan and Caden's success at the school. ;)

The madness behind the cupcakes.  In review, I won an entry for a free cupcake a day for an entire year. What are the terms? I have to show up in person to collect, but when I do I have the pleasure of spending time with the sweet owners of the bakery and, of course, my pick of any of their fabulous cupcakes.

What am I doing with these cupcakes? I give most of them away. Oh yes. There is so much fun to be had in surprising folks with a tasty treat. Now.  I feel I do need to taste some of these delectables in order to give my honest review. Wink. Wink. But in all serious, when someone asked me what my favorite was I gave them a blank stare, as I had only been in the shop twice before my winnings?

How do I Decide on who gets the cupcake?  Well big, special days like birthdays, graduations, successful plays, etc make the choice easy! The rest depends on where I'll be on that particular day. As over the top as this may seem, I'm praying about ways I can bless others with this. If the adventure ended tomorrow, I'd be sad!

Random Silliness...

It's hard to believe another year is over. 

More adventures to come!
