In Between Showings

Our house is officially on the market! Today was the first day and we already had our first showing.  This is such a stressful process for me because I am by no means a neat freak and it's hard for me to keep the house in "show" state.  In any case, I wore this today as I prepared for my school visit and drinks for a friend's birthday.
Top: Nine West: Skirt: Gap Premium Denim; Earrings: old
Ring: DKNY+BaubleBar; Necklace: old gift from Dad
Oversized Clutch: c/o ASOS
Bracelets: Marc Jacobs & Old Cruise Purchase
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Miss Boxe
The drinks plans were nixed when our youngest had some trouble in school and we got a call about a showing at the same time.  BUT, this was the first time since SATURDAY that I wore anything other than shorts and a t-shirt and did anything other than clean.  That fashion party I was going to on Monday? Didn't least not for me.
To be honest, I was really looking forward to having some adult company.  Most importantly, I was looking forward to having some adult beverages.  I think we would have made the drink commitment if it wasn't for having to deal with our child.

To any moms out there:
How do you cope with the disappointment of having to change your plans for your child constantly? Not to get overly personal, but I am a somewhat new mom (I married my kids almost three years ago) and it is still such a struggle for me to deal with not being able to stick to my agenda and having to readjust on a constant basis.


  1. Your bag is awesome,I love this colour!

  2. Hmmm. Now there's a question - one for which many moms need an answer. It's disappointing at the time, especially when you were really looking forward to it. You have to believe that it's not always going to be this way. There will come a day when plans derailed by children are a thing of the past. Right now that day cannot come soon enough! One thing I do in the meantime is plan as many outings as our schedule allows - some with the baby, some without. It increases the likelihood that a plan will actually work out! Good luck!

  3. Hmmm I am not really sure Ana since I don't have any kids! I am sorry to hear that your plans were postponed! Part of being a Mom shifts priorities, and I hope you can make it next time. Love the pink clutch and good luck with selling your home :)


Tell me what you think, but be nice! You catch more flies with sugar than spice!
