Happy Friday! I am so excited to finally have Miss Madeline in one of my posts. She is so active these days that it is next to impossible to get a picture of her. I've found that the way to do it is to snap pictures of her while she's playing and exploring. She became fascinated with the acorns laying on the sidewalk, so while she examined them, Mama and I were able to snap a few photos of her. I can't get over how much she is taking in and how much she is learning these days! She will do things, and I am instantly like, "how on earth does she know that!" She certainly keeps me on my feet, but goodness do I love her! She is trying to say so many words right now, and it is just the cutest thing. Her favorite word to say of all is "apple." She even thinks that pumpkins are apples haha 🙈 I just love this age.
As for my outfit details, I am completely obsessed with open front cardigans. I wear them all the time and with everything. When I wake up in the morning, I like to put one on over my pajamas when it's chilly in the house. I love to put them over dresses to carry my dresses into the fall. And I especially love the effortless look they create when paired with a tee and denim, like I'm wearing here. This one is only $79 and also comes in black. It's amazing! I recommend grabbing up a few fall colored tees (this one I'm wearing here is currently on sale for $20, and I recently grabbed up this one in olive), and a few open front cardigan to create several mix and match looks for fall. They will go so far!
I hope y'all have a great weekend. This has been one of the longest weeks ever. As I mentioned in Monday's post, I have had deadlines to meet every single day for school. Madeline is still getting over a stuffy nose from last week. I also had a meeting with one of my professors earlier in the week and while I was near the facility and didn't have Madeline with me, I decided to get my flu shot (I'm required to have one for the program I'm in). Well that wasn't the best idea because hours after I got it, I got the worse sore throat and headachy feeling. I have gotten a flu shot every year for as long as I can remember and have never had any side effects, but this one definitely got me! So with all of the stress and lack of sleep from school, trying to get Miss Madeline well, and feeling a little flu-like myself, this week has been rough! Some days I wonder if I can keep everything up, but I'm quickly reminded of how I want to succeed in everything all for my baby girl. That gives me enough encouragement to carry on. And them I remind myself of how "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." And yes, the Lord has given me so much strength, especially over these crazy weeks of trying to manage school along with everything else. I give it all to Him. I'm hoping that with some rest this weekend, we can all be on the mend and feel more like ourselves. And hey, tomorrow is the first day of October!! 😊
Thanks so much for stopping by!
