fresh start

Good morning! Happy Friday! I hope ya'll had a fantastic first work-week back! This first week of 2012 has been pretty darn fun. I got to spend lots of time with Mike, had some post work sisterly bonding time and found out that one of my cousin's is going to be a daddy! His baby is due a couple months after Jess, in early August! Yay for 2012 being the year of the babies!!
Yesterday Jenni and I met up to do some serious sale shopping. I was in dire need of new bras. I got two new ones for Christmas which was awesome, but I also got lots of money in gift cards to VS. I love that their sale starts the first week of the year, it makes new bra shopping so much more fun. We tried on every bra available in our sizes (the lack of bras in my size is a rant I don't need to share on the blog - but ugh so frustrating!) and came out with a couple each. The only ones that worked for me happened to be the exact same as the ones I got for Christmas. I decided it didn't matter if I had two of the same, as long as they fit really well. Then we went to Target. One of my favorite things to do after Christmas is over is to hit up the Target clearance for goodies for next Christmas. I like to stock up on wrapping paper (I never pay full price for it - I have enough for all of my wrapping needs next year!), bows, gift toppers, ribbon, sometimes an ornament or two, and the occasional decoration item. This year with Twiglette (my sister's baby) on the way, I got super excited when I saw they had the Christmas onsies on clearance for 90% off! They were 60 CENTS each! I got 3 in various sizes....I think they're pretty gender neutral as they're all red and black. Paired with jeans they're boy and with a tutu and tights they're girl! Magic. Between the two of us, we only spent $19 and look at this cart of goodies!!


Now, onto my absolute favorite part of the week! Friday Fancies! This week's theme was "best foot forward." With the idea being to design an outfit around a great pair of shoes. I think  the shoes I pick are always fabulous, but not really realistic in my life. So, this week I went with a pair that I might actually wear on a day to day basis. And seriously, who doesn't love silver Toms??

 And oh my goodness. Someone find me that bag....my birthday is April 9! I'm just too in love with it. And really, that shirt...Ok...I really just love this outfit!

Happy Friday! Hope you have a fantastically fabulous weekend!

Hooray for bras! :) Sorry your size is hard to deal with. Mine is too. I'm president of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee, so it's impossible to find anything. Ususally I have some luck at VS though.

Love that purse!

I'm actually really looking forward to the new TOMS flats that are coming out this spring. I'd maybe want one in a pretty silver like the regular Toms you chose! :) I do like that top too! Great job on the sensible Target shopping! I LOVE getting good deals there too!

(Oh and congrats on your first half marathon coming up soon and thank you for visiting my blog!)
