Hi y'all! That y'all is because we're back from our Texas vacation. The week after Spring Break is always a little tough, so I'm trying to take it easy with everything right now, blog included. Here are some pictures from our family vacay:

whitney and fran are hosting a "five days, five ways" linkup this week, and the first installment is all about styling TOPS.
the truth is, I don't even remember buying this striped tee from j. crew factory. i've been an outlet shopper all my life, so it could have come from an outlet in maine, massachusetts, missouri, or colorado-- and i just have no idea! point being: this shirt is OLD and has really come through for me over the years.
one of my favorite things to do is dress up t-shirts for work, but i also love to wear this shirt over the weekends with some comfy jeans on the weekends. i'm cheating a little (there are only four looks with this shirt below), but here you go!

my life as a middle school assistant principal is really glamorous.
yesterday, just as i washed the lead off my black hands after sorting 400 pencils into classroom testing bins, i had to clean up puke! poor, sweet sixth grader and her little stressed-out body. the good news is that after a throwup incident during the first testing session, i felt a great sense of calm about anything else that could happen. so far, so good.

Mwahahaha, Hubby Dear! Daylight Savings means that I can stay in my work clothes and ask you to take my picture every night! Seriously, I am so thankful for my sweetie and the little team and family we have. Hubby secretly loves working on my blog :)
I am very much loving this new cardigan of mine. It reminds me of this one from Madewell this spring, and I'm really drawn to black and white and geometric prints right now. While we're at it, forever 21 is KILLING IT with their sweaters! Allow me to shop for you...

since i started this blog last winter, hubby dear and i have had a lot of fun joking about his potential blog names. hubby loves the news. he loves information. he just wants to learn, and it's amazing. so, one of our favorite pretend names for his pretend blog is "Hey, That's Interesting" at heythatsinteresting dot com, where he would share his information highlights from the news.
i had a "hey, that's interesting" moment the other day when i put on this skirt. it's definitely a little tighter than it was a year ago, but you know what else has happened since a year ago? i turned 30. things really do change, and i'm okay with my slightly different body as long as i feel healthy. other thirty-somethings out there, do you feel me?

tonight, we're off to see the A L A B A M A S H A K E S! the most important piece of this concert outfit will be my snow boots, because we are in the middle of a BLIZZARD. if i didn't have to worry about trekking through the slush, here's what i would wear:
ps- some of these items are on sale this weekend!

i love wearing polka dots to work, and so do my coworkers! yesterday, two other ladies besides me wore polka dots, and my only regret is that we didn't get a picture together.
the teachers at our school have recently been organizing dress themes for Fridays as a way to bump up our joy factor. the last one was Cowgirl/Cowboy Friday. big hit with the kids (they aren't allowed to dress up-- they just get to be surprised by what their teachers are wearing every Friday)! i feel a Polka Dot Friday coming in the near future...
