It’s a brand new year for our “How We Wore It” posts. For those of you who have never read one of these posts, its a thing my friends and I like to do once a month. We pick a theme and we all create a post/look about said theme just for fun! It’s always fun to see how different our posts turn out, even though they are inspired by the same thing. This month we went simple and chose the color white. January is a month of new beginnings, so we thought it was fitting since white makes us feel fresh.
This year feels like a huge fresh start for me because I am all finished with my masters, and because I’m walking into with with two kids! I have a lot of goals and things I want to accomplish this year, and I hope to share those in an upcoming post, but as far as this post goes I wanted to point out a couple things:
- My stroller: This was an extremely humbling gift I received this Christmas! My sweet Tim, Mother, family members and friends pitched in to surprise me with my dream stroller. I never imagined that I’d receive such a generous gift and was completely emotional when I found out how many people made it happen. So if any of them are reading this thank you again! Thanks of course for the stroller, but also for being such a special person in my life.
- My jeans: These are my skinny jeans, and this was my first time fitting into them since having Vivienne. They still aren’t fitting how I want them to fit (#mombum) but I was just excited to get them on! I’ve still got a ways to go before I’m back to my pre pregnancy self, but that is another reason I am excited for this new year. My postpartum check-up is this Tuesday and I’m hoping to get the green light to exercise! Loosing weight is fun and all, but what I really can’t wait for is to feel strong again. I recently saw Newsies and Phoenix Theatre, and holy cow! Nothing makes you want to get fit like seeing a bunch of jumping, dancing boys!
- My kids: Because what kind of mom would I be without beaming about my own children? 😀
I hope you’ve all had a fantastically fresh January! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out how my friends wore it:
