A Day in the Life Too... a blog about modest style

A 30-something mom's blog about modest style, DIY stuff, and limiting dessert. Just kidding. We eat dessert first around here.

Excuse me, waiter? I ordered a Wednesday, but you brought me a Monday...


 shoes: american eagle outfitters. jeans: kohl's. sweater: old navy. scarf: gifted (but old navy). earrings: hawaii.

You know how sometimes people start a comment by saying, "Not to be rude, but..." and then they go on to be, well, rude? But in their minds it's okay because they prefaced it with a statement that supposedly negates the rudeness? I'm TOTally busting out that logic today. Only mine goes a little something like this:

(ahem)

Not to complain, but (you all know what's coming here, right? Complaint therapy 101.) my life is so very busy right now, it's all I can do to remember to breathe. I'd delineate all the combining factors that are resulting in said busyness so that you'd all believe me and, yes, pity me, but that would take too much time. Oh the irony.

Not that I think I'm so cool and my life is soooooo important. But sometimes my To-Do requires the paper of an entire forest. Like now. Believe me, I wish I could stay and chat awhile...because you're all funny and sweet and your comments make my day and I want to respond to all of you. Thanks for your patience with me.

Happy Wednesday.

There have been weeks and MONTHS when I've been too busy to respond to comments or read anyone else's blogs. Those times stress me out. That "mark all as read" button becomes a good friend. Don't be afraid to use it.

I love that soft colored top and the scarf is perfect with it! Super cute combo.

That scarf is so cool - I love the bright yellow with your teal sweater! Go rock your to-do list!

Beautiful colors! It's so Springy! You look super great in jeans, esp for a mom. What's the secret?! Breast-feeding? Exercise? Detox?!

Ahhh...I really love your blog. It makes me laugh...everyday. And yes I do actually read it everyday. It's on my google reader. But you are so cute. Wish we could be "neighbs" like old times, friend :)

Peggy said...

you look super cute in the scarf and jeans- great outfit! Being in the 30 for 30 makes you feel you have to follow and comment more I believe. We all understand about the busy-ness! It's been great to read your blog during the remix

this outfit is simple but still looks put together and chic, perfect for your busy schedule!

Take time to breath deeply and prioritize, we all understand that REAL life comes before blogging!

I hate when people do that - it's like they give themselves permission to be rude. I also hate it when someone says something obnoxious or mean and follow it by exclaiming "just joking!" Uh, no.

Real life comes first, before blogging and interneting. It's okay to be focused on things outside of blogging right now - sounds like you have a lot going on.

Your blog is too cute! I had to go back thru all of the 30 for 30 to see how you did the numbers! Number 224! ; )

Jenni said...

That is the the thing with blogging, we can do it when we want and when we have time. We aren't obligated to anything. Your true blogger friends will understand. Life sometimes gets in the way of other things we want to do. It just does! Go work on your To Do List. We will be here when you return!

I love the yellow in the scarf with the greenish blue (blue-ish green?) of the sweater...you look great!

CC said...

Yes!!! I so know what you are saying, I think it's ok to use the preface once in a while, but some people just use and abuse!
Good luck crossing off your monster to do list! I always chuckle at your pictures. You seem to have so much energy!
