Fringe Boots, Poncho and a Third Child

"Bah-byee," Bucket said
as he swung a purse over his shoulder.
Bucket is a serious observer.
He notices everything.  Everything.
When I told him he couldn't have a cookie,
I found him a few minutes later eating one.
He had pushed a step stool into the pantry and helped himself.
Oh, the life of a third child...


WHITE SWEATER - Target
BLACK LEGGINGS - Hue
STAR TANK TOP - Alternative Apparel
NECKLACE - Hand-me-down
FRINGE BOOTS - Forever 21 

PONCHO - Thrifted
GRAY LEGGINGS - Contempo
CREAM BEANIE - Krochet Kids
BROWN BOOTS - Steve Madden

BLUE NAIL POLISH - Essie "No More Film"
GRAY POLISH - Santee "Perfect Silver"
GLITTER POLISH - Princessa "Magic Emerald"

Here are a few outfits from the week.  I was excited to find this sweater at Target on sale.  I had been wanting a winter white one and this fit perfectly.  Last Christmas my sister, Polka Dots, and I decided to give each other presents from our own closets and I got this fab necklace from her.  In the second outfit, I decided to wear my poncho with this Krochet Kids hat I got from the store {Share} and Do Good.


Bucket and Pigtails with their purses.

I took on a few freelance writing jobs so it's been difficult to keep up with things like my blog (even my outfits - yikes!).  I squeeze in some writing, then swing my purse over my shoulder and quickly run out for mommy duties.  Now if only Bucket could grab me a snack on the go!

Congrats on the new job! I don't know if it is a middle child as much as a boy thing. My sons were the same way, my oldest more so. So defiant!

I don't know how you get those wild shots with your kids in mid-air but I truly think (as I've said before) that they are musuem worthy. Can't wait to hear about your new side projects :)
