A "New" Appreciation

#29 - DUBAI
BROWN BELT - Forever 21
EARRINGS - Forever 21
SUNGLASSES - Ralph Lauren
I love to bring out a "new" box of toys for the girls to play with.  It can keep them entertained for hours (okay, more like 15 minutes, but still!).  They seem to really enjoy the toys they already have as long as they haven't seen them in a while.  It's pretty great because you can just "hide" something they've gotten tired of and a few weeks later, VOILA, it's the greatest thing ever!

Pigtails plays with her "new" box of toys

Today has been a sleepy day.  I woke up tired and had to have a lunchtime coffee just to stay up for Princess Sparkles' ballet class.  There must be something in the air too because Princess Sparkles took a nap as well.  THIS NEVER HAPPENS!  She decided to give up her naps a few months ago and hasn't looked back (except for the occasional fall asleep in the car).

This is my second to last outfit of the remix.  I can't believe it!  I actually have made it through 29 days of only 30 items from my closet.  I thought it would be harder than this, but after a while I kinda got used to it.  Now if only my shopping fast was over because I really miss shopping.  But at least I get to dig into a closet full of "new" clothes.  Maybe I should do a remix more often so I'll have a greater appreciation of my wardrobe!

I've always been tired lately. I think I really need a break for a few days. I miss days when I could take a nap.

Your outfit is so pretty. You look amazing.

That dress is so lovely!! Congrats on almost being done on the remix. I wish I could do a shopping fast. That would be too hard for me.

Ah, I remember what a new box of toys used to mean to me! Now, I get the same feeling from a box of clothes (not that I get boxes of clothes all the time lol!). Nice dress! Love the sleeves. And glad your 1yo enjoyed the music on the video!

Sometimes I nap when the girls are down for theirs. . . it feels so amazing! I like your white on white outfit - it transforms the dress. And congratulations on (almost) completing 30 for 30! You've done such a good job of remixing I've almost forgotten that you've been doing that! :)

Such a cool dress. Wow your remix is almost over. I think I am finally going to participate next time around if Kendi does a spring or summer one.
I do the same thing with my kids. I actually keep majority toy sets in boxes and in the closet. And take out some different set everytime we have a playtime together or a family member comes by to play. They do appreciate it a lot more than the toys that stay out all the time.
Ah, I live for nap times. Even if my son doesn't nap at least 2 days out of the week he does quiet time in his room until my daughter wakes up.

Thank you for the tutu comment. You made me smile.

Cute white dress! I will have to remember that hide-the-toy trick--sheer brilliance! And congrats on your 30 days of no shopping, I fear I would never make it!
