Pink and Navy

 I hope you all had a WONDERFUL weekend!!!  Ours was definitely lovely.  I had the chance to go to another cooking class, this one about chocolate (yes please!!) and learned to make chocolate sauce, chocolate soup, chocolate semifreddo, and chocolate torte.  After we make the foods we eat them, and let me tell was a good day for eating.
 Josh and our boys ran a 5K on Saturday.  It was my 8 year old's FOURTH one.  That kid really is so determined.  My 7 year old ran his first one and my 6 and 2 year old finished the last little bit running (Josh had them in the running stroller).  Apparently my 2 year old had his special doggy and blanket with him in the running stroller and when Josh got he and his brother out of the stroller to run the last little bit apparently he gave them to Palmer (who has already finished), saying "hold this" and headed up running.  I am sad that I missed it, it sounded so funny.
 My hair this summer rotates between high bun, medium bun and low bun...I need to branch out.  My hair is so HOT right now!!  Summer is so fun, but it is definitely a fashion challenge :)

Another fun thing that happened on Saturday I went shopping with a girlfriend!!  That NEVER happens.  Shopping usually happens online, or quickly when the kids are asleep.  We had a great time, and hit up Old Navy for all of the cute stuff they have lately.

The saddest thing is that I bought these cute pants and they fit so WEIRD!  Has anyone else bought these?  I LOVE the print and I bought the tall version so I love where they hit on my leg, but the top is so strange.  The waist is so high and the pockets flare out crazily.  I am trying to decide if I want to keep them and have them altered or take them back...I am so disappointed.

  1. I love navy and pink together (in fact, I wore the same color combo to church today)!

    Cooking classes?!? I am uber jealous - I have been dying to take some locally, but with my husband's schedule it just isn't working out. I hope you share some tips!

  2. Really loving the color of your jeans...great buy:)

  5. The jeans are gorgeous! If I were to flip a fashion dictionary and look for the meaning of 'True All American Style', I'd see you there! Very fresh, clean and practical!

  6. I love these two colors together! (they were my wedding colors, hehe). That chocolate cooking class sounds amazing, I am drooling just thinking about it! I run out of ways to do my hair too in the summer, it's just too hot to wear it down anymore.

  14. They don't look weird but maybe they just have a strange feel when you wear them? I have that same shirt from Old Navy. Do you find that the ruffles never look straight and wander off to one side? It drives me CRAZY! You look so great--lucky you to be so tall!

    1. Yes Carolyn! I have totally noticed that on one of my ruffle tops, it drives me crazy!

  15. Okay, you need to come teach me all this chocolate business! ;) And you fam is so healthy and athletic. That is awesome you guys made it a family affair. And I have the same issue with pants from ON lately. They just don't fit right. If you don't think you are going to like them....send them back! ;) You look cute, though!

  16. You have an amazing styling sense..I loved stripes and especially that sock-bun .. beautiful !!
