Hello friends!!!! I took almost a month hiatus and though I wish I could say that I was away enjoying a fabulous vacation, I was not. Honestly, life just got way too busy and I was feeling absolutely overwhelmed trying to keep all the balls in the air. First thing that went was blogging, next reading my favorite blogs, then my running, which led to me being pretty much unbearable to live with. All is well, this is just what life is like sometimes, and I know most of you mommies out there totally get that.
Now it's Dec. 1st and I am back and feeling great. Today I had a big day, two presentations to approximately 150 people and though I was extremely anxious leading up to it, everything went so well and I am so happy to have it behind me. I feel like I am back in control of my life and I am liking it.
In October and November I had a list of the following three items, over the knee boots, a faux-fur vest and faux leather pants, that I wanted to purchase. I have been practicing being on a strict budget, $100/month, and have been sticking to it. So in early November I scored these amazing, suede boots at the Bay for half price!!!! Then in November, sometimes waiting really pays off, I got the faux-fur vest at Old Navy for $20 and the jeggings for $40 at the Bay. For the two months I saved a total of $40!!!!! Woohoo for me!
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of combining all of my new pieces into one outfit and I felt like a trendy mommy. :)
