Survival Mode

Monday, August 25, 2014

When Dan is out of town for field work the sweat pants come out and the diet coke is being poured much earlier in the morning than I'd like to admit. I go into this weird survival mode that's probably not wholly necessary, even if I have my hands full with what I've deemed to be the most active toddler ever. Some days questioning my ability to even have multiple children in the future. Whoa whoa I know calm down over dramatic Anne (but you guys he's teething too!)

After a rough day at church yesterday I read this quote on a friends IG feed "you're making it difficult for me to be the parent I always imagined myself to be." And I laughed out loud! This toddler business, with the newly discovered how to throw and tantrum, and the saying "no" to everything, it gives me a run for my money. It also gives me some of the sweetest and most cherished moments of my life! I'm really trying hard to focus on those when it's 6:00 and there is stuff ALL OVER my house and I'm thinking, how many hours till bed time?

So sweat pants are my jam right now. I mean, it means I've made it out of pj's at least! Who else is digging the straight leg sweat pant trend? It make me feel slightly more legitimate about wearing them so much! They just called to me from the Target clearance rack, and you know when that rack calls, you answer. 

Straight leg sweat pants: Target
Shoes: Converse
Top: F21
Sunnies: c/o Firmoo


  1. Oh. My. Goodness. Those pants are everything! I love the idea of being able to look/feel cute & stylish while wearing sweats.

    That quote is hilarious, btw. I don't have kids but I'm really thankful for mommas who are willing to be honest about it all!

  2. ooh the toddler tantrums & throwing stages are just so great, right? ha cedar is in that stage & i keep wondering when it will end... probably never, but i'm hoping soon!
    & that sweat pant style truly is the best, i probably feel more fashionable & put together than i should while wearing sweats when i wear mine that are that style!

  3. Your hair is so pretty!!!!!! And yes, when I'm home, always in comfy clothes because I refuse to deal with a crazy toddler while in skinny jeans!

  4. I love your hair, the curls are so pretty! x

  5. I'm so with you...slouchies and a diet coke makes the madness more tolerable at times!!!

  6. So cute! I love this post! And I hear ya about little ones all of the sudden getting the toddler sass.

  7. Raised hand emoji right here! What is it about diet coke that I crave now that I am older and a mom?

    Found you through HNJ blog on the capsule challenge. you in?

  8. Um, I totally love these photos AND this outfit! I also love the straight leg sweatpants trend - but I haven't taken the plunge yet. :)
