What I Wore Wednesday - It's Back!

I'm at it again! It's been way too long since I have done a WIWW post. The biggest reason for that has been working. You see, I have to wear a uniform at work - black pants, socks, shoes and either a long sleeve black button up with a black tie or a black polo with the catering logo. Sounds fun doesn't it? It really makes me want to wear more color when I can. I also have been able to do some spring shopping, so that makes this easier for me. I guess it also helps that I had 4 days, IN A ROW (!!!), off work so I got to wear more normal outfits.

I also had a little free time this weekend (Hubby and Gabe went out of town for the weekend, so nights after bedtime were all mine!) and decided to try a little something new. With each picture you will find each piece of clothing along with a pic of me wearing it. There is also one pic that includes my inspiration for the outfit.

I am linking up with The Pleated Poppy, check out her weekly linky party. Lots of fun and inspiration!

Let's Review

So, since my last visit in
Work, work, work

Gabe started High School Soccer, on the Varsity Team
Work, work, work
Soccer at least 4 nights a week
Work, work, work some more
Celebrated yet another anniversary with my Hubby <3
Work, work, work
Start planning for Christmas, finish up soccer, take on more hours at the store
Work,, work, work some more
Thanksgiving at my house, less than a week to plan, shop, clean, and cook - fun times!
Work, work, work some more
Plan, shop, hide, wrap, clean, bake, package, cook, label, decorate and all the other good things that come about at Christmas
Work, work, work some more
*Try* to make it through Christmas day without passing out from exhaustion
Work a little less ;)
Spend most of the month trying to recover from the holidays
Spend the month trying to keep all the bills paid after the holiday spending
Work, work, work more than the last month

Work, work, work some more
Valentines Day, and 2 hours out with my Hubby for dinner
Work, work, work some more
Gabe started managing the High School girls soccer team and being a line ref for recreation soccer teams (yay! his first paid job)
Work, work, work some more
Lindsey joined Girl Scouts just in time to complete their cookie sales, and Brody started a soccer tots class - you know, just because I didn't have anything else going on. :)
So now you are all caught up on what's been going on with my life. I've been wanting to get back to this, but this is the first time in over a month that I've had more than 1 day off a week. I'm exhausted, but at the same time I love my job. I've been promoted to full time, so I guess thay like me too (haha). I'm also going to try to get back to my WIWW posts. When I work I have to wear a uniform - black pants, socks, shoes and either a black polo with the university logo or a long sleeve button down with black tie. I'm getting really tired of all black. It's time for Mom to do something for Mom! Now if I could just find someplace to escape to for a weekend where I could just sleep and relax, life would be almost perfect, well, at least for me.
See you soon!
