Wet Polish and Wardrobe Wednesday Classic

Hey! It's Wet Polish and Wardrobe Wednesday!

This week I did a Classic Red that the hubbs got me for Christmas.

You can never go wrong with red! Don't you agree?

Here is the wardrobe for the week. I'm ready for Spring but I'm hoping that it stays cool enough for a while:

Tank: Borrowed from my sister Cardi: Target clearance Belt: Agaci Jeans: Charlotte Russe Uggs: Last Chance for $20!

Florals are always fun and matched with a cardi, you can't go wrong! :)

Hubby kept snapping even though I was done posing. And yes, that is a Harry Potter wand on my bookshelf.

I. Am. Obsessed.

Here is Mr. Harrison for the day:

Romper: Thrifted (Old Navy)

He is getting so big! Love my BFF!

How is your week going? I know that by Wednesday, I need a diet coke to help me through the "hump". What's your guilty pleasure that sees you through the "hump"?

Mortified, to say the least

This was a story from a few years ago that I decided I had to share with you all. Hopefully your Monday isn't as mortifying :)

So I was able to snag a yoga/pilates class this semester and am now using it as my weekly dose of "zen". In order to completely immerse myself in my zen-ness, I went and bought some stretchy black leggings for 5$ at Target along with a new tank. I was all cute in my black leggings and new tank top and zen-d out for class.

I typically stand with my mat in the first row at the front of the class, with the remainder of the class in my row or in subsequent rows behind me (Which consequently magnifies my mortification into oblivion). So whilst stretching on my mat at the end of class I notice that my leggings are virtually see-through in the knees when i bend and stretch them. Not so bad, I think to myself. That's why these are my workout leggings and not ones that I wear all the time. So I get in the car and start that long drive home...

As I'm in the car I'm thinking, hm, these leggings are see through when stretched....and yoga does a lot of stretching all the way down to the ground.... hopefully they aren't too bad in the back......
Suddenly, I can't get home fast enough to be able to bend over in front of a mirror and check things out for myself.

Lo and behold, the stretchy pants are indeed see-through when stretched in the back.

4 things that made this whole situation worse:
1- I've worn them twice to class now, doubling the amount of flashing I have done.
2- As I said before, I stand in the front row, with everyone behind me.
3- With most stretchy things, like spandex, one typically does not wear chonies along with them.
4- In case anyone in my class failed to notice my scandal, today my instructor used me to demonstrate the proper way of holding a pose. I'm still unsure as to whether this pose was an offensive one all things considered, but it was still stretching a bit. And now, anyone who didn't get a look now had the opportunity.

There are only a few ideas that I am clinging to in order to make me feel better about my embarrassment...
Hopefully, everyone was as involved in their own breathing and stretching that they were unable to really take a look at my derriere. Also, I did find out NOW rather than at the end of the semester so considering I've only committed the offense twice, I'm pretty lucky.

Still horrified, I am now vowing to wear my sweatpants from this week onward, in an attempt to redeem myself. {cringe}

Wah Waaahhh wah wahh

You know the noise that the teacher makes on Charlie Brown? Yeah that's what the title of this post is supposed to sound like.

It seems like it takes a lot to keep up with all of this blogging world! I'm falling behind because my house is currently a destruction zone! I decided to turn one of my spare bedrooms into a craft room and then decided to paint our master bedroom. All of my furniture is in the loft and down the hall... ahh! Hopefully over the next few days i'll be able to get everything in order but as for now, it's Wahh wah wah wah wah wah.

Wet Polish and Wardrobe Wednesday Aquatic version

Heyooo! It's Wet Polish and Wardrobe Wednesday! This week I found these on pinterest and just had to have them:

So fun! Although the "scales" took me forever! Haha :) Love them! Will be doing them again pleaseeee.

My wardrobe and Mr. Harrison's are combined today in one lazy my-camera-battery-died-and-I-don't-want-to-look-for-my-point-and-shoot photo!

Blouse: F21 Undershirt: DownEast Basics Jeans: Charlotte Russe Boots: (Not pictured) Cathy Jean
Mr. Harrison's outfit: Costco!

Yaaaay lazy. Haha. I love this blouse- I bought it last year when I was pregnant and it always made me feel pretty and BONUS since it isn't maternity, it still works without the belly.

And I just had to throw in some little snipits of Mr. Harrison trying new foods.... I am feeling pretty bad here because I gave him an oreo because he wouldn't eat anything else... haha :)

Despite his face, he loved it. And just one more little cute face:

He's loving on those teething biscuits!

How is your week going? Any fun plans?
