Well, look at me I'm back again for another installation of What I Wore Wednesday! Woohoo! I actually wore this outfit yesterday to run errands and wolf/bear hunt with my two year old by the cow pasture near our neighborhood. You know how we mama's of boys do. Anyway, I hope you're having a fantastic Wednesday!

(24 week baby bump!)
top: target
skinnies: motherhood
shoes: toms
necklace: handmade
some day i'll clean that mirror. 
someday i'll take better photos too. :)

Want to make this necklace too? Little Miss Momma has a wonderful tutorial!
Check it out here!


After we returned from our bear hunt we made a tent in the living room.
This was the first time we've ever made an inside tent! And I have no idea why we haven't done this before. We had too much fun. 

This is a pic from a previous bear hunt that I thought was too cute not to share. ;)

On another note: Yesterday I took a break from checking twitter, facebook, and instagram because I have noticed them becoming a problem for me (maybe even an idol...eek). I had been checking them constantly looking at what everyone else in the world was up to. I have wasted a lot of precious time sitting and hanging out on social media when I could have been doing something (anything) much more valuable. I even think they can can be creatively draining. Know what I mean?

Do you ever find yourself constantly checking a social media outlet? Is your smart phone always in your hand? Just something to think about...

Hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving with your families!
