Steppin' Out Saturday

This Saturday, I didn't feel like stepping out anywhere.  I woke up with the worst
cold: sneezing, congested, sore throat, achy muscles.  All I wanted to do was lie in bed
and sleep the miserable feeling day away.  Of course, that didn't happen.  Saturday was
my best friend's daughter's birthday, a special afternoon was planned to celebrate a
beautiful little girl.  I wouldn't have missed her party for a silly little cold, no matter how
bad I was feeling.  So I sulked around in my pajamas until the very last minute and then
got the girls and myself dressed, had a hot cup of tea and slipped some Kleenex into my
back pocket.  We put our best smiles on and headed over to the bouncy house, ready for
some princess birthday party action.
Here's what we wore on my not so sick day.  This is me in practical mom fashion mode,
the "I don't feel good and I'm about to chase my kids around an indoor playground"
look.  Dark wash jeans, comfy long sleeved tshirt, and clogs.  Add cute earrings from
husband and a scarf to make it look like I tried.  The scarf doubles as a great nursing
cover on the go, by the way.  It is also worth noting that this is the first time since Brees
was born that I did NOT step out with a diaper bag!!  As our baby girl is growing
and requiring less and less on our outings, I was able to fit both of our belongings in one 
of my favorite purses.  Getting to ditch the diaper bag for a purse is a monumental 
moment in the life of a mother.  It's one of those moments that makes you feel like you 
are getting a little piece of yourself back.  Until your baby smears chocolate cupcakes 
all over your purse and you remember why you've been carrying the durable, canvas, 
easy to clean diaper bag in the first place...
