Sometimes I debate about sharing things from my life or talking about things like, "I wonder what the royal princess's name will be?" But this last week and weekend have kind of taken their toll and I can't think about anything else to share. It's been busy with Matt preparing for a business trip, Claire having the flu (for the first time!), and crazy end-of-the-year evaluations and reevaluations (teachers you know what I mean). Sometimes it's even more work to stay home than it is to be at work! 

So trying to be a parent, speech pathologist, home owner, and actual human being this weekend was not exactly successful resulting in me writing a report at 10pm last night and then onto this blog post. Not that I would be able to sleep anyway. On top of everything we had a police officer come to our door this afternoon. Apparently our neighbors was broken into late last week. We live in one of those neighborhoods where you feel fairly comfortable leaving your doors unlocked while going for a run. I guess not anymore.

There are much worse areas to live in and thank goodness no one was home at the time of the break in, but that doesn't really make it any easier to feel safe at night. So I guess what I am saying is that I would appreciate your prayers for getting through this week!

    Oh no! So sorry that things are tough right now! The thought of a robbery is so scary. It seems like there just isn't a 'safe' neighborhood anymore! Beautiful look! I love your clutch! I've heard good things about Old Navy pants. They look great on you!

  6. Simple yet so chic. I always love leopard with mustard and leopard with stripes. The 3 together are even more perfect.


    I hope you stay home safe and I am sorry to hear about the rough weekend but I hope it is the last one. And hey our kids are in their terrible twos so I know the feeling, also.


    Happy Monday Laura. And Happy May - it is my favorite month! Kisses to little Claire!

  7. I often feel the same way. What to write about... to share or not to share all the real behind the scenes things that don't feel so fun. It's a hard balance to strike. We all have real lives going on and it often isn't as glamorous or as fun as clothing. I'm glad you shared and am sorry you have had a tough week. Hoping this one is better! I love your combo of colors and textures here.

  8. I can totally relate!! I have been feeling on overload for about a month and my brain just doesn't seem to want to push out full sentences ha! You look adorable though--those pants are too cute and the fit on you is just fabulous :)

  9. The break in sounds scary. I heard about some college apartments (not in a nice neighborhood) that got broken into while the people were sleeping. The guys stole this one girl's car keys and stole her car and she didn't notice until two days later. I always lock my door!
    I love that pretty cardigan color! Those cords look really comfortable!

  11. I am sorry for your tough week! It is so unfair that we have to feel unsafe in our homes. I hope Claire is feeling better and you get some rest this week. You look lovely in yellow(: Susan

  12. Break ins in the neighborhood always put other people on edge. I am praying that your family has a sense of peace during this time. I often contemplate writing things that are too personal on the blog but sometimes you just need to let it out and "us" in the blogging community are here to support! On a brighter note this casual look is very chic!

  15. Mustard looks wonderful with your pale skin tone, I am not sure if it will look reasonable with my darker skin.

    Ugh, a sick child is never fun! I hope she is feeling better now. You look beautiful in this outfit, the navy and mustard works together so well... I have never paired those two together, but I have a mustard skirt and should try it sometime.

  20. Wow you've had quite a bit thrown at you lately Laura! I hope Claire is starting to feel a bit better, your workload has lessened a bit, and that was the last burglary in a long time. Those things happen, even in safe neighborhoods. Do those neighbors have older kids? I know at least the only time my bf was ever robbed had to have been by someone who had been in the house because he found the exact hiding place and didn't take anything else. That could be the Dame for these neighbors instead of just a random break in. As for the outfit, I can't believe I've never paired my mustard cardi with my navy striped top. I need to pin this for future reference!
