Outfit of the Day: Work Edition

Today was a very long day. I worked all day and then went straight from work to class. Yes, because I have lost my mind I thought it would be a perfect time to get my masters degree. So I have class on Tuesdays from 4-8. I thought I would share my outfit today because it was actually a pretty decent one for a change ha! I do have to give a disclaimer before you look at the picture, it was taken around 9 o'clock (after I got home) and in my son's very messy room...one of the projects on my to-do list this summer is to get those toys organized in a way that is easy for my boys (3 1/2 and almost 7) to maintain. So excuse the mess :)

I know the lighting is terrible, I promise to try and do better next time :)
Top: Croft and Barrow from Kohl's (I have to wear this shirt with some kind of sweater over because otherwise I feel like it looks like a tent! (who knows what I was thinking when I bought it...)
Teal Short Sleeve Cami: Anchor Blue (from years ago, that place doesn't even exist anymore haha)
Pants: Ann Taylor Loft
Shoes: bought at Ross (I have to check the brand)
Watch: NY&Co (I know you can't see it so well but I get so many compliments on this watch and it was only $20 or less :) )

So last weekend I did a wonderful post on my recent revamp of my coupon organization and I was very excited about it, then I accidentally navigated away from the page and it is lost forever in cyber space :( so I will re-do that hopefully this weekend if I have time. Hope everyone is having a good week!

March 2013 at an Instagram Glance

So many blog posts, so little time...this is the story of my life lately. I mentioned a while back that I am a teacher and last week was my spring break. I had so many plans of things to do over break and then I got sick. Unfortunately it happens to me a lot during vacation time so I will be burning the midnight oil for the foreseeable future to play catch up. Additionally, I have lost my mind and decided this was a great time to get my masters degree and I start that in a week...wish me luck!!
Until I am able to make a regular post (I have so many that I am dying to do on our house) I decided to get my fix using Instagram. This post is dedicated to March 2013 Instagram style!! (Basically I have taken all my favorite Instagram pictures from March and compiled them here to share) I hope you enjoy this until I am able to get back to regular posting :) and I hope your March was a great one! 
 My little one sleeping at my mom's house one day

 My oldest son and I went bowling with my brother and sister-in-law one night and had a blast...this is what happens when bowling pins attack!

One perk of being a teacher, the occasional field trips! Living in Southern California leaves us with no shortage of places to go and I got to chaperone one trip this month. First stop was the Le Brea Tar Pits 

Second stop of the field trip was to the Griffith Observatory and I couldn't help thinking of the movie Yes Man...who's with me? Anyone? haha :) 

I spent the morning of Daylight Savings at my son's baseball agility training at the park, sadly I was not a very happy camper :( 

 At my son's school they wrote a grant and got money to hire real artists to come and teach the students this was his first product some water color flowers
 Little brother waiting for big brother to get out of school (my spring break is different than his so I cherish being able to pick him up for the week)
 I helped in his class one day and the artist came to help them make a Matisse inspired horse collage, it was so fun!
 My stud warming up for one of his baseball games :)
 Very excited for their baskets on Easter morning
 Boys with my parents and the baskets they brought them
 My little one with his basket from his nina (godmother) it was a pirate chest from Jake and the Neverland Pirates he loves that show and was thrilled

Since my husband was also sick while I was on break and we weren't 100% on Easter we didn't go out anywhere and I felt bad. So while nina was here she helped me put on an egg hunt in our backyard, they were very happy with it :)
