reap what you sow.

thanks for all the sweet comments yesterday.
for those who were interested in the cupcake wine, here's
the link (ahem, kim. lol!). the red velvet was good, but my sister opened the bottle a few days prior. i may not have had it at its best, but many of you had positive things to say about it.
i look forward to trying it again.

i love my mom.
but moms will be moms, and they'll parent you till the day they die. i have been known to roll my eyes or turn away while she's talking or not even look up. i know, bad. but what's really bad is when mini-he tells her,
"i don't have to look at you because mom doesn't!"
kids are receptive to everything that's going on around them whether we like it or not. i expect the minis to become respectful, honest, and responsible adults, and i'm their prime example. so in keeping up with my resolutions, i have been sleeping earlier (no blogging till 1am)...so that i can wake up earlier...so that we can have pleasant mornings...so we can get to school on time. if i don't get to your blog on a daily basis, know that this is why, and i will catch up the next chance i get. as much as i enjoy my late nights and me time, i have to make sacrifices for the minis. after all, we reap what we sow.

reaping what we sow:
today's lunch...salad made with lettuce from our own garden.
(blazer & top, f21 (similar)(similar), shorts, express (similar)(similar);
shoes, nine west (similar))

Good resolution. I need to try that, but it's so hard. Love staying up late on the internet.

What a cool outfit. Love the blazer.

Love this look! Business and glamorous all rolled into one! I totally know what you mean! One thing I want to work on is spending more time with my kids...it seems like you're off to a great start though!

I love your style so much sweetie! And, I also have made a resolution to myself that I will go to bed earlier so that I am in a better mood for my toddler's sake. LOL! Me time is super special, but I'm coming to terms that it is less and less lately! xx


Anonymous said...

I haven't stopped by in a little bit --something along the lines of trying to reap some different results in my life as well--but you look as lovely as ever! Congrats on reaping your own lettuce!! How nice!
I love your entire look, but I would LOVE to have that blazer the most. I really want to find a light colored one other than white.
Now gotta go check out the cupcake wine post---I know that stuff!

Oreleona said...

i love the whole outfit!! especially your blazer and shoes!!

Meri said...

This is a great work look! Do what you have to do to get to bed earlier, it makes such a difference to be more rested!

LOL Becks! :D Girl, I just clicked the link and their prices are RIGHT! I thought it would be more expensive. I am so ordering several bottles (different ones). HAHAHA I'm so bad. Thanks for sharing the link. hck hck hee hee Now I want your clutch! LMAOOOO It is sharp! Great outfit girl. I love those shorts. Did i mention the clutch? :) I need to cut up some strawberries in my salad. How fabulous are you growing your own lettuce! Comment when you can! That's what I do. Sometimes I go back 2-3 posts and comment. I can't get to everyone in one day and leave a thoughtful comment. You're thinking right chicadee! ((HUG)) Now let me go order my wine! :P

It is so very true and it is amazing that how we as parents constantly need reminding of this. My kids floor me all the time with imitating me with things that I thought they weren't paying attention to. What a great resolution and I wish you the best. I know that you can do it!

These tweed shorts and the blazer are absolutely stunning and a winning combo in my book

audrinajulia said...

Love your blazer, beautiful! I also love everything about your resolution.Motherhood is really a lot of sacrifices for your own welfare but it's all worth it.:) I also agree in parenting that you reap what you plant.Setting to be a good example can thought them many ways but I think it's not also a guarantee that they will become a good person afterwards,it's still on their own free will where they will put themselves. However socially I know/hope/praying it will help kids to interact in a respectful manner. As a mom it's better to mold them in a good ways than not.

love this look, your blazer is gorgeous x

Fashionable Rose said...

That is so sweet of you! i am sure your kids are the most important part of your life! :)
about the outfit: well.. i love everything about it! the shorts bag blazer and the gold details! such a stunning mum xx

Hope Adela Pasztor said...

Love the elbow detailing and your shoes! =)


Baby Budget Blog said...

LOVE the neutral colors in this outfit! Puts me in the mood for spring. Oh and the gold jewelry additions were perfect! Oh and as for me, I'm still slightly afraid of my mom hehehe. Won't even think about walking away or sucking teeth or the like in her presence. She tells me I'm not too old to get smacked and I believe her :) She is however such a pushover when it comes to her grandkids (my siblings kids) so I venture a roll of the eyes in that respect!


JennaStevie said...

It's so crazy how much kids pick up on things!! Its definitely "monkey see monkey do". Your resolutions sound great and I'm sure you're a good example for the mini's
I absolutely love this blazer, elbow patches make me swoon. Especially with these shorts, such a great combination!

Call me M said...

Don't worry! We understand! Your family and your children should be your no.1 priority as always! I'm sure you're a great mommy! :)
Really loved your outfit! The colors go really well together, and the blazer with the elbow patches is amazing. I have to buy something with elbow patches! I'm obsessed! :)

Tiffany said...

Oh, I know what you mean! When you see or hear the kids do/say something that reflects what you do or say... And you don't like it. That's when it seems to hit home that you need to change something! I think that's a great resolution. I've recently been trying to be a calmer momma in the mornings too. That's when things get crazy as you're trying to corral the kids to head out the door and it's SO easy to lose your cool. So, I've been taking big deep breaths and making a point to keep my temper under control.

I love this outfit on you! You look like you're about ready to step into a business meeting. =)

Sia said...

Family first! I die got those shorts! x

Beautiful!! I adore the entire outfit. Just perfect and glamorous, very you.
Good that you are prioritizing sleep, me too I realized I wasted too much time and I paid the consequences the day after.

Chyrel Gomez said...

Bre said...

Such a darling post. Kids are like little sponges and sometimes it's great while other times not so much. From what I can see (or rather read) you are a doing a great job at being mom.
I really like this outfit. It's a very classy menswear inspired look. Your hair looks great like that too.

Monsterchen said...

reap what you sow, that´s the best resolution i came across for a long time darling, and even if i don´t know you too much, i´m sure from that what i could catch from your blog here you are the best mum that a child could have;)

oh and you also make formal business look sexy ;)

Claire said...

SpryOnTheWall said...

Loving this outfit! Lettuce from the garden is so nice, I'll have to wait a few months for some of that fresh goodness!

✗✗ said...

Aww kids are little sponges, which I can imagine is super scary sometimes, haha.
As for your outfit, I am soo in love with that blazer!!! It really ties your whole look together. I love it!!

Hautepot said...

I love the multiple layers of brown here and the various textures. The elbow patch is a quirky, unexpected touch :)

welldressedmaker said...

Becks, I love you. and I love your parenting style. There are so many parents out there who don't realize what that kids need to be molded into model citizens-- they just don't become like that on their own. :)
