now he's done it

Wednesday, May 11

Shoes: Aldo, Skirt: F21, Belt: UO {husband's}, Top: UO, Clutch: c/o Le Mode Accessories
Today I came home from school to find husband standing amidst a very scrubbed living room and kitchen with his arms spread and a great big "ta-daaaaa" on his face. He then proceeded to lead me around the house to admire his handiwork. Starting with the couch, at which he proudly spread the cushions apart for me to admire how well he had "cleaned the cracks"
I just left that one alone.
After the tour, he pronounced "Gosh. Who knew I'd be such a good homemaker?"
Proud wife moment right there.
If husband doesn't watch out, he's gonna have a permanent sugar momma on his hands. I could get used to this.

P.S. I JUST got myself a Pinterest. And I have one pin.
It's macaroni and cheese.
Off to a very inspiring start.

Sarah loves it all said...

P.S. You would appreciate the fact that I am currently sitting at my laptop with a square Tupperware (we have no clean bowls) full of Macaroni and Cheese shaped like some sort of Disney or Nickelodeon characters that I can't make out, sitting atop my large large pregnant belly. I've almost polished off the entire thing. Do you see what time it is??

This is one of my favorite outfits ever! You just look insanely beautiful. Oh, and congrats on your little one :)

Stephanie said...

Sydney,
Can you let me know how you like the shoes? I love, love, love them, but the only review that is on Aldo is that they are uncomfortable and cheaply made. They are on sale right now, and I would love to buy them, but don't want to if they are uncomfortable or are going to get scuffed on the off white part right away(like the review says)

Thanks,
Stephanie
