Real Momma, Real Style


Throughout every aspect of life we have expectations about how things should go, should be, how we should behave, yada yada.

Like buying our house…..

I expected that the professional parties involved would be, well, professional.
I expected that what they promised would be delivered.
I expected to move this weekend.

That’s the problem with expectations, I often set myself up for disappointment. Sure, people have not done their jobs correctly, errors have been made, delays have been caused, inconveniences have occured. But that’s life.

Instead of looking at the negative, Hubs has an amazing ability to look at the positive, or at least the not so bad. I’m trying to be better at this….

My photoshoot got rained out…or…I got to have fun and take awesome sprinkled on pictures.

Top/Cardigan: Old Navy, Jeans: Gap, Shoes: Target, Watch: Michael Kors, Necklace: c/o Lisa Leonard Designs

We didn’t get to move this weekend…or…we got to take LJ to an awesome little Eggstravaganza where he had the time of his life for a whooping $5.

Then proceeded to sleep for 13 hours.

Sometimes things not living up to my expectations is ok, I just have to learn to roll with it.

For more great fashion, I’m linking up to What I Wore Wednesday on The Pleated Poppy. You should too!

    SOrry :(
    We’ve bought 3 homes and it’s never a smooth road like the plan in one’s head, unfortunately :/

  4. I don’t believe in predestination but…. I remember our nightmare and then finally we got the house we’ve been in for 8 years now and we love it. I think it’ll all work out for the best. I agree with you hubby: glass is always half full. I know it’s hard to remember when you’re in the midst of looking/buying a house. Hope you’ll find the right one soon!

    Linking up as Sporty Chic (#4). Thanks for hosting!

    uplifting post to start the morning….your little man is a cutie.

  12. Mindie says:

    You look great, cute and sassy. Sorry you didn’t get to move. As a former Realtor, I know that moving can be stressful and sometimes you need a cattle prod to get old owners out of their home on time.

  13. Stacie says:

    Love your outlook! Hopefully things start going smoothly again for your move, I know it can be stressful! And of course, gorgeous outfit! (as always) :)

  17. tiffany day says:

    First, LOVE that outfit! Trying to see how I can create a similar one with what I have!

    And yes expectations can get let us down sometimes – someone once told me “expect the best, but prepare yourself for the worst” And things do happen for a reason and while we cannot always see why – things have a way of unfolding to show us the timing all along was perfect!!


  18. Not only are you totally rockin that outfit LOVE your post girl!! I can totally relate!! Hugs to you!

    House buying is almost always a nightmare unfortunately. I will spare you of all the drama we had selling our flat and buying our house but let’s just say at one point our buyers threatened to sue us over lightbulbs–seriously.

    I love the watch and that you rolled with the rain! Hope you’ll link up with WIWW, too! We should do some sort of style exchange/interview one week :)
