Today was a special one.
After Mass I headed north on 95 to celebrate the college graduation of my eldest godchild, B, and his twin J from the UMD. Both boys graduated with honors and already have spectacular full time jobs.

It was a very special day for my friend Sharon whom I have known since I was 15 years old. She is Courtney’s godmother. Unfortunately Miss Court doesn’t handle the heat well so she stayed back with Daddy so I could spend as much time as possible catching up and visiting.
I wanted to be comfortable so I went with a cotton and linen combo. I have always been a fan of madras plaid and have lost enough weight to feel like I didn’t look like a lounge chair wearing it. I paired it with a kelly green sleeveless linen button down.
I am trying to be at peace with my upper arms. NOT the most attractive part of my body but I remind myself every day that they are strong and lift my 93 pound daughter several times a day. I can do push ups and I plank like a boss. I just wish they were trimmer. Slow and steady wins the race my friends…slow and steady…and LOTS of upper arm work.
Here is what I wore this week. You can see that I wear jeans almost everyday since it is easier to care for Miss Court with all the bending and lifting I do. I will say though, that the maxi dress is way comfy and doesn’t interfere with movement.
I really do need to figure out a new pose. Wowza! Bor-ring!
I have been trying to get dressed every day in something other than yoga pants. I gotta tell you that there are days when that effort feels Herculean. The draw of elastic is a powerful thing my friends. Powerful indeed.
Miss Courtney has been wearing jams and sweats so much recently that I only got three photos this week of her in something other than that. I did notice that we had a red/white/blue thing going on though. I guess were’re just practicing for the summer festivities.
