On not succeeding

Things don't always work out, you know? For example, last Sunday, we wanted to get our dog's nails clipped (a first-time thing, Sunshine has always had lots of long walks and naturally worn down her nails, but we've cut down on those walks since the little nugget arrived so...), get some burrito bowls and go hang out and eat at a local park with a fabulous lake.

We did not succeed in having the nails clipped (Rabies paperwork! Sure. It makes since we would need that!) or the burrito bowls (No silverware!) or the park (Sunshine Dog cannot contain herself around other dogs! No one wants to eat a burrito bowl with their fingers... except possibly Thomas, but he'd have issues with the textures...)

Anyway: My point is: Sometimes I have these really lovely, idyllic days of contented motherhood and other times, nothing goes right and my husband is all like "Let's go home" and I'm all like "Yeah, okay," but at least Thomas and I had a few minutes looking at ducks, and I finally got an outfit photo for my blog for the first time in, like, a month.

Silver linings. Here's a picture of my outfit. The skirt felt really short when I was wearing it, but looks really long in this picture. What's that about? Let us all ponder. Shoes and shirt are second-hand. Skirt is not. Thomas's onesie has a tie on it, which makes it pretty darn amazing. Lake background enjoyed for approximately eight minutes.

Every moment counts, success or not:D

You're right about the skirt---it doesn't look short in the pic! Some days things just don't work out for sure!

I'm having days like that, too. Sigh. But, your outfit is really cute and so is his onesie :)

It's frustrating when things don't go to plan. But there's always next time!
Love the flippy swingyness of the skirt.

Yeah, it can be like that, but at least you got your eight minutes. Probably your skirt feels short because it is so flared. I always feel naked in a flared garment. ?! But you look fantastic just the same.
