Monkey see, monkey do

Mom wears hat, son wears hat...
In fact we are going on 2 straight days of son not giving up the green hat.

Mom says "Darn-nit, son says "darn-nit"(there may have been some other word in my mind though).

Good reminder for the momma monkey to be on her best behavior and not monkey around too much. It's so hard though when there is so much monkey business going on around the house.

I think I recall something about teaching by example...shoot. I'm considering some momma reform.

I love that my son is obsessed with hats, boots, make-up and necklaces. Speaking of necklaces, when springtime arrives I get so excited because I bust out some of my very favorite items such as inherited turquoise. I have always been a lover of turquoise. I think I need to make a really good friend in Tuba City, AZ who knows special things about old Navajo textiles and jewelry.



P.S - Wasn't husband so nice to put the red tape on the light pole so I wouldn't back into it again. Pls. refer to the second picture.

You can forget us going thriftin' together! You're taking me clothes shopping. You've got some serious style.

vmichelle said...

I'll chime in on the jumper again... you make me actually want to wear a jumper. Never thought that would happen!

I am so laughing right now because I didn't think anybody would even bring up the jumper factor. That jumper is from Marshalls and it is so comfortable.

GiGi..yes pls. let's have play date. Is prosecco something that all parties involved in the playdate can drink...we'll probably going to have to stick to just macaroons and French lessons..do you still want to come now? haha

Michelle - I am still waiting for our thrifting trip. We can even wear matching jumpers:-)

Design Wanna-be said...

You are seriously working the jumper! I would never have thought it would work, but you--can handle it!

kate lines said...

are you kidding me with that jumper?! you are the cutest mom ever.

angela hardison said...

recently i've decided that i need a navajo rug... i also recently learned how much they are worth. so now my goal is to find one while thrifting.

hey my dad used to own a bunch of stores on the indian reservations (chinle, tuba city, etc); maybe he still has some friends there? i'll ask :)

love the jumper.

Amanda said...

you're hilarious AND stunning... i want to be you. end of story.

Kelly 'Knoth' Christensen said...

You can rock a jumper like no one else I've seen! You go girl!!!

Whitney said...

You are so stinking hot. Tall skinny girls pull off jumpers wonderfully. Short girls... not so much. Your monkeys are pretty cute too.

erica@ moth design+luxe life said...

Ok you are so ridiculously gorgeous!! I had to laugh out loud about the tape. Clearly you're humble too.
Got to say I have some turquoise pieces that I love too and they just don't feel the same when there's snow.
Have a great weekend fabulous Momma! xo

christy said...

Love that necklace & the bracelet! I too have a special love of turquoise, always have, must be an AZ thing. :)

You rock that jumper! I saw Old Navy has them & I thought to myself, no one looks good in those, umm you totally proved me wrong.

Shannon and Carey said...

Lovin' the jumper momma! It's springtime.

LOL. Tape on the light. I'm dying...lol. How many times have you bumped into it?
I love turquoise also. My mother has a squash blossom that is fabulous and some other little pieces. My aunt owned/operated a place called Mr. Indian's in Sapulpa OK that had the most exquisite pieces you'd even laid your eyes on.

PS: I need to email you my goodies that I got at the garage sale last weekend. Spent $1.50!

Aimee's Family Journal said...

So, when you do come over for lounch, will you wear the jumper? So that I can see this now famous outfit in person?

Niki {A*Lovely*Lifestyle} said...

What an adorable little monkey.

I am LOVING your black number. You look great. You model mama.

Thank you for your comments. They make me feel so good.

Mike and Debbie said...

But what adorable monkeys they are!!! I'm just smiling at the thought that Mr. B actually thought that the red tape is going to help!!! (at least if it were me, it still wouldn't prevent crashes)
