So Many Pics, So Little Time

Oh my goodness!  
What has happened to the time?!?  
I had good intentions of updating my blog last Sunday but life happens, and blogging did not so AGAIN I am doing 2 weeks of outfits/blogging in one post.

Monday:  Here is my outfit all planned out and ready to go for the day.  I am prepared and going to start the week off right!  I have planned black pants (Maurices) with this mint/teal shirt (PickYourPlum), pink, chevron scarf (PickYourPlum), white watch (New York & Co), and pearl bracelets.

Joke is on me.  
Spring storms mean no school on Monday.  This great Monday outfit turned into a Tuesday outfit because I never go to wear it because of an awful Spring snow storm that brought about 4 inches of snow.  
The good news was that, I got to see this beautiful sunset a couple of days later!  

Wednesday:  Spring in North Dakota means that you are ready for nicer weather but may have just had a snow day so you have to dress accordingly. I wore this bright Spring outfit but had to include tights because it is a little bit chilly.  Shirt is from my mom's consignment store, skirt unsure where it is from, tights from WalMart, and shoes from Kmart.  Sometimes, you just find a great outfit piece at those stores!

Wednesday night:  Trying to pack for a conference but instead end up organizing my chaotic scarf collection.  I think I might have an obsession….

Anywho, here is the finished product with colored coded rings on a coat rack to organize my scarves.


And it turns out, I did finish my packing which was quite difficult because usually I take multiple outfits per day.  My goal was to take one outfit per day and fit EVERYTHING into one small suitcase.  Here are my outfits for Thursday throughout Sunday.  

Thursday:  I am leaving right away at the end of the day to drive to the North Dakota Reading Association's Spring conference.  I wanted to be comfortable so I wore these crop, denim-ish pants from Gap with this cute stripped shirt.  I wore this nude colored necklace because I wanted it to have multiple purposes all weekend.

Here are my conference notes.  Great things learned and I cannot wait to get back to start some Writer's Workshops at school.
After the conference, I went way up north (almost to Canada) to attend my partner teacher's mother's funeral.  We got back late on Satruday and had a lazy day on Sunday so I did not update the blog.

Monday:  Week number 2 for this posts starts with brown pants (Maurices), flower tank (mom's consignment store/Target), and a cream cardigan.  I loved how the colors in this outfit matched so perfectly!

Tuesday: On Tuesday, I wore an orange and grey skirt with black shirt and heels.  In the first picture I got photo bombed by my puppy because she LOVES to lick lotion off my legs.  I took a 2nd picture to show just the outfit!  This wonderful skirt is from my sister!

Wednesday:  I worked out Wednesday morning before school and had a heck of a time getting ready so the pictures are not too great.  I had to shower in the coaches' room at school because I live 15 minutes out of town and did not want to drive back and forth after working out.  While blow drying my hair, my blow drying quit so I had to air dry my hair in my classroom (about 7am) and then curl my hair at my desk using my black computer screen as a mirror.  It was a cluster!  
Here is my outfit: black capris (Maurices), grey shirt (PickYourPlum), pink scarf (PickYourPlum), chevron, teal watch (PickYourPlum).

Thursday: Ha! Jean's day because I had a doctor's appointment in the morning and conference in the afternoon.  Skinny jeans with this cute white and purple striped shirt from my dear friend, Rachel.

Friday: Real jean's day!  Our Falcon's softball and baseball teams won last night so I am supporting them today with my skinny jeans (mom's consignment store) and Falcons shirt.  I love the look of skinny jeans with sandals that have a strap on the back.

Saturday:  I just wanted to post my Saturday picture because it is what I am thankful for this week.  I was able to go turkey hunting this morning (top picture) with my husband and our friend Zach.  Although, we did not kill a turkey there were so many wonderful things that happened this morning: called the turkeys and they responded, saw a large group of turkeys, and saw this beautiful sunrise!  This afternoon/evening I was able to sit on my front porch and watch the sunset with my puppy and a glass of wine.  I am so grateful for this life!
