Yay, the new table is here!

So the new table is finally here. It took a month almost for them to ship from store to store at Potter Barn. Anyway it is finally here and set up, thanks to me and Jake, and I am happy. It turns out I don't like it too much without the leaf in it. Feels a alittle small in the space without it. The pictures on the wall need to be replaced. Hubby is sick of looking at them. So I am on the hunt for new ones. Tonight will be a dinner all together at our new spot. That will be nice. Now I can reset my dining room up.

img1m.jpg This is my new table that I am waiting desperately for. We order it beginning of January but it is not here. GRRRRRR. We will be using the same chairs as in the pic. As we gave our table to charity we are currently using our dining room for all eating. And I want my kitchen nook back! I am so ready for this table. We had a table and chairs that Dave had bought before we were together from Costco and it was nasty but it was good while the chillens were little. We didn't care about them dinging it up or coloring on it. I am so ready for my grown up kitchen look. If it ever arrrives I will post a pic of it.

Casual Carrie

This is actually not me today. I am not wearing clothes even slightly as presentable as this. But, lets pretend.
Today I need to clean the house. Boo! But that would involve actually getting out of my reading chair and to stop reading.

So after a nice quiet weekend due to no hockey, I am ready to send my kids away!!! Because there was not much going on, tonight they are driving me around the bend.

Saturday night was dinner at a friends with the kids and a couple other families. It was a great time. I wanted to wear something comfy and casual but add some color pop. And now that there are no rules left in fashion I paired an orange necklace with red shoes. Crazy, I know. I really live outside the box!

My pictures have some work to be done, but my 12 year old has become my official photographer. Quite a few pics had to be deleted due to his finger in the shot. And this one, the dog snuck in.

This week brings crazyness in my driving. With exams with one kid at one school, which means short days, and the other one working on a project, it shall be me and my truck all day long. Ahhh well this is what I signed up for and I am good with it, but I do like to have a small moment of whining. Cheers!

Finally I have figured it out!!!

Forever, forever, forever. That is how long it has been since I blogged. Here is yesterdays outfit. It is me sans make up because I had been for a microdermabrasion facial and there was no way I was putting anything on my pristine skin! My sweet friend D took the picture that had to be outside so I could hide under my sunglasses.

So, since I last saw you all I have had a birthday. 37, ouch! But with all birthdays come reflection, time for adjustment and PARTIES!! I had a great dinner with friends at another friend's house in the hood. Great to have sucked back a few Grey Gooses and walked home. Okay, I ran because it was freezing out! But then I crawled into my warm bed and as I turned out the lights I looked at my dear hubby and said "Yep, another year. But so far, they just keep getting better." Who knew the older I got the better I would like it all.

And now that I have figured out how to load pics on the imac I am going to be on this blog thing like white on rice! In fact I am getting the little man to take a pic any minute for tomorrows blog. Yahoo!

New Years, New Me

So as we start a new year we load ourselves down with resolutions that seem to work the first couple weeks and then slowly(or sometimes overnight) go by the wayside.This year I am not making crazy ones about how many times I will get to the gym and how I am cutting out all refined foods. (I say crazy because they never seem to work when I try and get vigilant). This year I am going to slowly incorporate new and better ways to do things. Maybe, try to appreciate the sunshine a little more, open the window a time or two more often, and try to incorporate health into our lives a little more.
I am realizing I have to expect a little less from my kids. Now that they are the age they are I feel they can do most things themselves. Wrong. Take Jenna. For those of you that don't know my girl Jenna, she is a sugar addict. ADDICT! She is the first one to find any candy or junk in the house and consume it ridiculously fast! If given the chance she would sneak an entire sugar bowl if she could. I have gotten into this easy processed food trap that I said I never would. I just tell her to grab a snack when she is hungry and her first choice is the pantry. Never the fridge where the "real" food is. When the babies were babies I only feed them natural foods that I had made and snacks came in the form of dried fruits and healthy treats from the health food store. I need to go back! Jenna needs fruit and veggies as a snack, or healthy options that I have gotten ready for her. I need to be more vigilant with her. We have been trying to detox her from all the white flour and sugar she consumed on Christmas vacation. She did not choose healthy options at the resort and we didn't want to make big scenes in every restaurant. So now we are home and trying to be on the straight and narrow.
Lets see how this one works for a new little bit of healthy. That is what I am going to try and do for the new year. I will be the one chained to the kitchen making healthy snacks for all!

Here are the actual boots. Better pic.
so these are my outfit today posts. Love the beauty job of pics? Can't figure out how to take full length shots on my computer. Part of the learning curve I guess! Anyway, army green skinny cargo's from AE, black patent lace up boots, grey batwing top , white tank and multi color scarf. I will keep trying to figure this computer stuff out! Thanks for your patience darlin's.

So it begins

So after months of debating I have decided to try a blog. What have I got to say, I am not sure but I am going to wing it so bear with me. I will be trying to be a little more creative in the fashion department and I am a bit of a shoe freak!

I will also be talking about and showing house stuff that I am working on. Always a work in progress!

So, Hello Blog world
