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.

what I'm grateful for...

 Raise your hand if I should abandon ship on these numbers. Did your hand rise? No? Blugh.
 shoes: steve madden. tights & bracelets: don't recall. skirt & belt: kohl's. shirt: old navy. watch: citizen brand.

This week I'm grateful for:

- realizations. Vague? Sure. But true nonetheless.
- MP3 players and arm-band attachments. And headphones that go over my head and into my ears because my ears are weirdly shaped and don't keep the "real" kind in while I jog.
- our dog Charlie. cutest, craziest boxer on the planet.
- sour gummy watermelon candies and a husband who will fetch them for me every month. Even without my asking. He just knows.
- walking into our bedroom and seeing Pocket and the 3 kiddos hanging out in our bed, talking and giggling. *warm fuzzies all around*
- warm fuzzies.
- electricity.
- toothpaste.
- polka dots.
- kids in general. They make me smile and sometimes laugh out loud. Even when it might be inappropriate to laugh out loud.
- sunshine and 60-degree weather. Today!! It's glorious beyond belief!
- reusable bags. and disposable bags. and bags in general. 'cept bags under my eyes...not so grateful for those. But grateful to have eyes to have bags under, so... circle of life cycle right there, my friends.
- the circle of life.

Happy Sunday.

I raised my hand. Not that they aren't entertaining, really, but I'm just a tad concerned for your safety. Just a tad (who says that? Just me? I do say some weird sayings so it's understandable... Annnnd I'm rambling). Cute outfit by the way!

Julie said...

My ears are weird shaped too! Can't wear earbuds. It's nice to know I'm not alone in the world ;)
PS Love the red ruffles!

That blouse is beautiful on you, the skirt first perfectly and I love the contrast of the gray booties instead of black. Awesome outfit!

I don't know wear to start. I love this outfit. So cute. The red has such a nice pop! Also your little girl is adorable. Not to mention she looks very stylish.

Elissa said...

Don't abandon the numbers! It's such a special, albeit crazy touch you're putting on the 30x30 challenge posts. Your little girl is just adorable. And this might be my favorite outfit of yours by far - that pencil skirt does wonderful things for you.

You are so awesome! I love the human numbers - what a unique idea, and of course - your outfits!

The shoes are fab, and you are definitely channeling Valentine's day with the cheery red, polka dot top! =)

Rachael said...

60 degree weather? i don't think we can be friends.

Jennifer Huerta said...

Thanks for the wonderful comment! Yes, the dress is kind of a grayish-blue (but my camera is like a mood ring--it will change the color of everything.) I have been watching your looks for this 30 for 30, and they are so cute and creative (and I love how you form the numbers with your body! Too funny!) Looking forward to seeing more! - Jen

Love this look! The polka dotted blouse is so cute.

Emily said...

I hate all those stupid ear buds - why in the world don't they come in smalls or something?

Ife' said...

I am two days late so I will say Happy Tuesday. Lol! Totally agree about the damn ear buds. Whose ears are they made for, anyway?

Children are definitely the ultimate source of joy. all you can do is smile at the crazy things they say and do. They are just so untainted.

Thanks for sharing! and you already know how I feel about that blouse! Love.It.

Laura said...

Carrie said...

Just found your blog through the remix list and I LOVE this outfit. I think it's the red shirt and unexpected gray shoe. Keep up the good work fellow 30x30er!

Excellent use of Layla. I see a fashion blogging future for her.
