You must be crazy

September 8, 2011 in J. Crew

This week has flown by. I’ve been unable to find time to even write posts. Or shop!! No joke. I’m trying to stick to my three September goals, and its going pretty darn well. 1) I’m getting up at 3:30-4:00 so I can get pre-work workouts in. I love working out so early. The gym is nearly empty, there is free wi-fi, and there is free coffee. Not bad. 2) Cooking!! Oy, does this take more time than I have. I have succeeded in putting together lunches consisting of fruits, salads and snacks. I already feel healthier, its pretty nice. 3) As I mentioned, I haven’t bought random items. Well, I did get a tank top, but I’ll excuse that. Now I just need to find time to search for my goal items!! There is still time, lol.

It was green day on my pediatrics team today. Well, its green day every Thursday. I love these J. Crew cords, although they do stretch out during the day. You know, I really was worried that I would hate every specialty there is, and by no means did I think I would enjoy peds. But I do. I’m starting to understand what it might be like for the few people who are lucky enough to enjoy their jobs :)

Hopefully this has been a good week for all of you teachers and parents!!

The Remaining Warm Days

September 5, 2011 in Joie

I’m not usually a dress person, but since its starting to cool down, it seemed like a good time to pull out the summer dresses (all 3) and give them one last wear. This joie dress is great and so crazy comfy. I used Jenn’s belting strategy to give it some structure. Loved how it turned out. I did have to loosen the belt after dinner, at which time the dress looked a bit maternity, but its okay. Hope everyone had a great long weekend!! (I’m working from 6am-8pm today, so I’m jealous of everyone with today off!!)

Long Lost Love

September 3, 2011 in Paige

The title is a little dramatic. All I meant was a brand of jeans- Paige, to be specific. Paige was my first brand of denim that I fell in love with. They are so simple and flattering (like on Kelly!). When I was fluctuating between a 24 and 25 I ended up selling all of my too large pairs, but never found any other ones to take their place. I was recently frequenting Evilbay and decided to esnipe a pair of Laurel Canyon jeans. Five days and $18 later I had a pair of great fitting, worn in jeans. Not bad!!
