It's hump day ya'll!

Ugh, I want to slap myself right now for just saying that.  That's the first (and last) time I'll
ever refer to Wednesday as "hump day".  Moving on....

I've been feeling pretty uninspired, dare I say bored, lately.  Not sure if it's the fact I watched an entire season of The Lying Game in two days (Best show ever.  She kinda looks like Raven, no?) or the fact that the most exciting thing to happen in the last week was my baby taking a shit (he hadn't gone in 5 days) but I'm in a funk.

One of my goals this year was to step outside my comfort zone and take more pictures of myself.
As a mom who's always taking the photos, I think it's safe to say 95% of the pictures I have do not include me.  I'm working on changing that!

Even if it does mean I have to set the self timer and run to get into place like an idiot. 

Don't ask me why I'm standing like that.

Sunglasses - Target (old)
Necklace - F21 (old)
Boots - Target

 Last Wednesday I asked for opinions on wedding attire, and I'm so happy about the feedback I received.  I think I knew dress 2 (Teal) was the one, just needed some affirmation, I guess.  By the way, I am renting my dress for the occasion, and have never used Rent the Runway before.
  Anyway, I rented these two dresses and a clutch:

Woohoo!! Glad you chose that dress :-)

I'm also trying to do a better about taking pictures with my kids and of myself...I'm always the one behind the lens!

Adventures in self-timing:
1. Push button
3. Deep breath, smile
5. Click.

I love that you mention a self timer! Did you use a self timer on these photos too?! You look so cute, I love how casual yet put together this look is!

I like your jacket and necklace, too. :)
