high waist glory.and a random wall.

there comes a time in every woman's life, when she takes a detour form the juniors section at the store and strays into the "mom section". many times, the mom doesn't even know it's happened...

the kids were probably screaming in the cart. she was for sure hungry. and she was probably running on 3 hours of sleep. it's not her fault. whatever the case, there she is: suddenly attracted to the mom shorts. high waisted glory from heaven.

so ya, i was in wal-mart grabbing some napkins for something and this very thing happened to me. actually, i saw that my sister audrey(who is prego) had a pair on a couple weeks ago. she shared the news that, for $10(no, that's not a sale price, that's regular price. booya.), you too can have these faded glory denim shorts. i wear them daily and am in love. they stretch a little, and you can't possibly have a muffin top, as the sit just below your rib cage. ha. ok, not that high. but they are modest and they are cute. they even came rolled up like this. no rolling required. hello!

anyway, come with me on a random blog journey...
this is the wall i have been working on lately. i hope to add more N's maybe...more cute artwork...more cute pics. ideas? thoughts? concerns? share.

speaking of cuteness and sharing, here is layne sharing a rice cake with lila outside. i was watching them through the blinds like a stalker and my camera happened to be right next to me. i love that they are becoming friends-- considering layne asked me to take her back to the hospital when she was first born. oh memories.

  1. I've been thinking about a wall of V's for a while. Then I think that might overwhelm a future husband. So I might just wait, get married, and do what you did. Smart? Yes.

  3. Super cute shorts! Looks like a Walmart stop is in order (sorry Target, I do still love you best). For the wall, maybe a simple vase with some tall blooms for a little pop of color. Looks great as is though! And great pic through the blinds! So beautiful to see siblings become friends ☺. Have a great weekend!

  6. Hahah Love it! I just ordered some shorts from Old Navy and let me tell you. . . I am going to scare away all the neighbors with all of the crack going on around here! Muffin top and crack, so not a good combo!

  7. okay, so i always have like 3 different thoughts for my comments...probably because you go all over the place with your posts.
    comment #1, i rock high waisted jeans.
    comment #2, we are definitely soul sisters, as i was just taking pictures of my new wall in the living room...filled with all my new goodies...maybe you will find something to hang on your wall.
    comment #3 i LOVE that picture of layne and lila. why does layne look so grown up?

  8. Those shorts are super cute! Took me on a walk down memory lane to 6th grade when my entire summer wardrobe consisted of rolled up jean shorts.

    LOVE the pic of the kiddos...so sweet!

  9. Cute! I wonder if they can even rock a "few weeks post baby" body?

  10. I think this is the best. Seeing your daughter dealing with the same life you did at her age, but being honest about her feelings and telling anyone who listens. I love you Jami, mom

  11. I'm usually not a fan of Wal*Mart (at. all.) but I may just have to make a (QUICK) trip to see if I can snag a pair of those cute shorts!

  12. I bought some Seven High Waist jeans and I LOVE them. I wear them too much. And wash them too little.

  18. HOLY s. It happened to me last year and I didn't know it. Faded glory and all, but then I did find some at Gap Outlet for close to $10 so yeah.
    I like your wall.
    And I like that your kids can play outside without you being right beside them even more. This means one day I can do this. Right?
