Conquering My Apple

I really appreciate Pigtails' tenacity.  When she sets her mind to conquer something, she does it.  Today she took on an apple.  Not slices, but the whole fruit, peel and all. 

We were at Princess Sparkles' ballet/tap class where it's always a huge challenge to entertain Pigtails for an hour, but the apple was doing a decent job.  It took the entire time and a lot of small little nibbles, but she eventually finished it.  She was very proud of herself.

FLORAL DRESS - Forever 21 (similar)
DENIM VEST - American Eagle (similar)
WHITE JEANS - CAbi (similar)
WHITE RUFFLE SHIRT - Bizz (similar)
This 30 DAY REMIX is already posing a challenge (and it's only my 2nd day!).  It's not just wearing the same sets of clothes, but more the shopping fast.  I think the stores know I gave up shopping for Lent, and that's why they're sending out some of the best coupons ever.  Like this Old Navy/GAP/Banana Republic one where you can get 30% off your purchase (online code:  W8NWW3YGPJ7X).  If you use the coupon, do me a favor and let me know what you got (so I can live vicariously through you!!!). 

I really want to conquer this 30 DAY REMIX and shopping fast.  If I can just take it one day at a time, I'll eventually finish the entire thing without getting overwhelmed.  Kinda like Pigtails and her apple.  Then I too can be proud of myself!

You can do it, you can do it! And you will be SO proud of yourself! Just don't go into any stores and if you get emails from them, delete immediately without opening! Hope that helps. :)

I LOOOOVE seeing other people do 30 for 30 but I myself wimped out at about day 20. The lure of the rest of my closet and spring sales did me in. :)

Love your outfits...the green is cute with the floral. I have that green shirt so thanks for the idea! Gosh...I miss the good old days of working out religiously. I was one of those workout junkies too. Now my workouts consist of running around after my 'lil ones with an occasional run here and there ;)...sigh, the sacrifices we make as mamas!

Tara said...

I have noticed the EXACT SAME THING! The minute I started the shopping fast, everyone started having spring sales. So not fair!

We can do it, though, I have faith in us :)

Great start to the remix, by the way! I love the belted button up with that dress...

This Life, Redefined…stop by and say hi!
