Camel Poncho + Life Updates

Another year.  Another poncho.  Why can’t I get enough?  So happy they are still in!

This camel sweater poncho sold out almost immediately in this year.  I didn’t even have a chance to talk about it before all sizes were gone.  Sizes do tend to pop back up randomly so if you missed out, save the item to your phone or desktop and stalk daily.

This is one of my go-to fall outfits.  Simple, comfortable and cozy.  These Abercrombie high rise skinny jeans have literally been on repeat since the day I got them.  I love them SO much that I just picked up these distressed skinny jeans, these white button front skinny jeans and these dark denim skinny jeans.  Hoping they all fit the same.  I can’t even begin to tell you how insanely comfortable they are.  They hug in all the right places and the inseam is perfect for gals with short legs.  I’m wearing size 24 short as a reference.

So I’m slowly getting situated in the new house.  To be honest, I’ve been struggling and stressing out more than I’d like to admit.  Milan is adjusting better than I am.  I feel like my plate is so full and I can’t seem to keep up or catch up.  I haven’t finished unpacking and I desperately need to get my office in order.  I’m barely getting through each day.  I’m the type that wants to get everything done as soon as possible but I’m only one woman!

I’m close to finding Milan a new school so once that happens, it’ll be much easier to get my house and life in order.  I’ve also been struggling with mom guilt.  On one hand, I need to get things done but I also need to make sure I pay attention to her.  She’s never going to be this age ever again and I don’t want to so wrapped up in everything else that I miss out on being present.  My patience is shorter and I just need to do better all around.  Sigh.  It’s hard but I need to stay positive.  If you can relate, know that you are not alone.

  3. Beautiful Annie,. Give yourself a break. You have gone through catastrophic changes in your life for a very long time. The unbelievable thing is that as much as you have been devastated you look even better than before. How is that even possible? Keep your head up, look to God to get you through it all. I know people have said some ugly things to you and about you, but keep on WINNING! They’re just jealous. Allow yourself to grieve. Then let it all go! Easier said than done, but you’re pretty much there. You’ve been through the hard part. Take God with you every where you go. He’ll fight your battles for you!
