Vivacious

Welcome to Monday everyone.  Does anyone else feel like they need a weekend from their weekend?  Uffda, it was a busy one here!  It was all fun stuff, but it just was so full!  Anyway, I'll get to that in a minute, but today starts a fun new fall color challenge with Heidi of Literate and Stylish and Marissa of the Modern Austen.  I had a lot of fun with their spring Pantone challenge, so when I saw they were doing a Fall one, I was totally on board.  Today's color is Vivacious - which is kind of a magenta.


My magenta is a bit more on the muted side of things today, but I think it's somewhat close.  And it's giving me an excuse to wear this shirt I picked up at Erin's clothing swap yesterday.  It was a great swap - first one I've ever been to and I was so excited to bring home a bunch of goodies that will work both while I'm still pregnant and for after as well!  And I was able to unload a bag of my own things too, so that was really quite awesome!

 Striped shirt - swap
T-shirt - Mossimo, Target
Pants - Old Navy maternity
Necklace - Charming Charlie
Booties - Target


The rest of the weekend was busy with my baby shower with Mr. Monkey's family - his aunt truly outdid herself I swear, our theme for our nursery is Dr. Seuss and she found the cutest decorations and favors I've ever seen.  I don't have a ton of pictures, but I'll try to remember to post a couple of the ones I got here once I get them off my phone!  Then Saturday night my mom and I went and saw Josh Groban.  We had awesome seats and he is always amazing.  I could listen to him sing the encyclopedia and still be entranced.  I managed to get one semi-decent picture, but the lighting in the arena wasn't the best.  


He's amazing.  End of story.  And yesterday in addition to the clothing swap we celebrated the Pants Monkey's mom's birthday.  We had a nice yummy dinner and a fire in their fireplace - it's getting cold here folks.  There was even a little white sleet or snow falling as I drove to work this morning.  So. Not. Ready.  

Check out either the Modern Austen or Literate and Stylish for more Pantone color inspired outfits - or to add your own - this challenge goes all week long!

  4. Weekends are always so busy! It sounds like yours was wonderful with a baby shower and all, what fun. Those pants are super cute for fall, I love all the dark pink hues together. And I know, winter is coming much too soon in the midwest!

  11. Busy weekend! Make sure you take it easy during the week then -- you better enjoy doing what you want AND get lots of rest before baby takes all of that away!
