Well, hello there!

Hi all!  It's been way too long...longer than I planned!  Apparently a lot of people were on the Internet hook-up wait list in our area because it took forever and a day to get ours hooked up.  Finally, we are plugged in and I am back!!  We are loving it here in Ohio...everyone has been so friendly and we've felt welcome every where we've gone.  The mid-west is proving to be all it's cracked up to be, thus far! We are getting settled into our new home a little more each day. The unpacking is coming along...it'll take another week or so probably to get through every single box.  It would have gone a little quicker but we had the worst packers ever and they decided to mix up items from different rooms.  I've found computer gear with towels, old college books that were in the garage with the kids' current clothes, blankets with sand toys from the garage...seriously, terrible packing etiquette.  It's made it that much harder to get everything organized, but we're getting there.  

Since it's been so long, I've got quite the back log of outfit photos to draw from so I thought I'd post a few of them today for my first post back.  Here are three outfits I wore this past week:

Thursday

Swept Aside Top-Down East Basics
Highlighted Frequencies Cardigan-Anthropologie
Toothpick Ankle Denim-J Crew Factory
Gold Wedge Sandals-Banana Republic Factory

I snapped this picture before I put any jewelry on...whoops!  I did add some, no worries.  I wore this to a girl's night a new friend of mine was having at her house...so fun!

Friday

Cabomba Blouse-Anthropologie
Curvy Jeans-Gap
Sam Edelman "Javi" Wedge Sandals-Endless
Necklace-Anthropologie
Bracelets-Tiffany
Repercussive Light Earrings-Anthropologie
Fireworks Ring-Banana Republic

Date Night!!  Hubby and I enjoyed a night out on our own.  We went to dinner, saw The Dark Knight Rises (it was really good!!!) and stopped for ice cream at Graeter's on the way home.  Perfect night out!  We have already found a great babysitter that our boys love so that's been great.

Saturday

Tee-Gap Outlet (OLD)
1969 Denim Bermuda Shorts-Gap
Madden Girl Sandals-OLD from DSW
Pieced Prism Necklace-Anthropologie
Bracelet-Silpada Jewelry
Earrings-Nordstrom (BP)

After working on unpacking the garage and basement all day we went over to a movie night in our new neighbor's driveway.  We watched Bolt up on their garage door and got to know some more of our neighbors.  Lots of fun!

As you can see I finally have a full length mirror in my house so I'll probably snap most of my pictures there from now on.  Much easier than dragging my kids to the front porch to take pictures!  Behind me you'll see my closet.  That was one of the first spaces all unpacked and I'm loving it!  A walk-in all for me!  Hubby gets the closet behind the mirrored door all to himself.  That was one of the things I was very excited about in this new house...more closet space!

I'm off to get the kids registered at their new school today...we don't start for another 3 1/2 weeks so we still have some time to play.  Thanks for being patient and hanging in there while I've had such a crazy summer...I'll be much more regular in my blogging from here on out!

Have a great day!!!

PS--Anyone else glued to the TV now that the Olympics are on??  I'm loving it!!!

  11. Ho Jenni! Glad to hear that you're getting settled in. Big moves can be so stressful (our family has moved 3 times in the past 6 years but hopefully, we're done with that!) but it sounds like you have taken it all in stride. I got my Gap bermuda shorts - thanks again for helping me track them down - and love them and they look so cute on you. Happy you're back!
