Date Nights

2/15/2018

How often do you do date nights as parents?  I feel extremely uncomfortable dropping off my four sons at my parents’ house for a couple dates.  We haven’t considered paying for a babysitter either.  Most often we make our dates with our kids or lunch date with my husband since we are both working in town.  Our family dates often involve trying new restaurants and take the subway into town for a movie.

With the work week full of responsibilities and weekend is packed with activities, this day reminds me that we are in need more date nights.  Not until Spring gets here, I should plan to schedule in a natural walk or a hike in Blue Hills.  In the meantime when it is still chilly outside, we will put the kids to bed early, cuddle up on the couch in front of the fireplace, and enjoy a NOT a PG13 movie 🎥.

What date night ideas do you come up with these days?

Red Valentine ❤️

2/12/2018

It has been awhile since my last post.  The holiday seasons had passed quickly.  I enjoyed the time off from school with my family.  I tried to eat good and do some exercises, but I do need more efforts.  Now that I am back to school part-time while holding a full time job, there is no way that I will make exercise a regular.

Do you have Netflix?  I am addicted.  I am watching “Reign” now and  I can’t stop 😫.   I am still in a dreamland with King Frances.

Valentine is coming.  Do you have any plans?  We usually do dinner and a movie.  This year I just wanted to get cozy with my husband and kids at home.

This dress was from Forever 21 and it is no longer available.  Recently Forever 21 has stocked up style similar to Reformation dresses.  The choices are endless, especially wrap dresses, which can easily be styled by everyone.  Happy Valentine’s!

I am currently obsessed with these above assemblies.  I would like to recreate with an affordable version.  So I’m on a hunt for checked blazers and instead of white slips on above I like a pair of white bootie.   I would buy a blazer from Target and a pair of Booties from Forever 21.  What are your picks from below?

Fun Meets Function

10.2.2017

Sheath dresses are my to go for 9-5.  I am thankful for how easy to get them on and out of the door every morning.  As the same time I am tired of them.  Weekend comes I just want to wear something fun.  Tobi is one of the online stores that I often browse and inspire, clothes to be wear by women with confidence.

Fall Stripes

9.14.2017

Don’t put your stripes away just yet, because I think stripes can be worn all year round.  This week, Boston has great weather.  We are in the 70-80’s with sun and crisp cool air.  And yet, it is New England so layering is always safe because the air can turn all of a certain.

Sunflower Field at Colby Farms

9.11.2017

As we set the ball rolling for the school year, what was a better way to end the week with visiting a sunflower field.  I missed this stunning view last year because of the rain and we could not fit into our schedule.  This year I kept checking the Colby Farms’ website for announcement when these beauties were in full bloom.  Last weekend we made it here.  Oh mine!  It was satisfying.  I can look at these pictures throughout the year as a vehicle to rejuvenate and energize my body and spirit.  Now that Evan and Landon are older, our week is much more busier than before with activities.
