Happy Friday party people! Hope you all had a great week like I did. The weather was basically gorgeous with the exception of a few afternoons and I am loving it! I need the sunshine in my life desperately! Lots of things are coming up so let's get to it!

This is my last Friday of maternity leave. It feels very strange. I have been away from work since February 23rd. In some ways I am so ready to go back to work. I truly love what I do, even when it is super stressful. The other part of me thinks it will be weird to be away from Reese all day and I am a little nervous about how she will do at daycare. I know these people are trained to do this so I am not worried about that. I wish I could write all her nuances down and just give it to them so they know to make the transition easier for her. She is very particular, although I am sure most parents feel that way and I am just being crazy. Although next Friday is not her first daycare day, I will be working from home that day, so I have a few more days to mentally adjust.

If you saw my last post you know I got a second part time job. This week was my first week doing it for the full amount of time. I feel I am getting the hang of it this week. Still a few bumps in the road, but I am really liking it. Not sure how I will get it all done when I go back to my full time job too, but I like to stay busy so I am sure I can make it work.

I realize now I hardly took pictures this week. This is basically the only picture I took this week. On Tuesday it was plenty warm enough to wear shorts. SHORTS! For the first time. I forgot I bought these Madewell shorts on major sale and am obsessed with them now. I might wear them for Mother's Day brunch so stay tuned on Monday for details!

Ok so next week is cray cray busy (do people still say that?). My sister is getting married on May 20th (yay!) I start work again on Friday and one of my favorite people on planet Earth is coming to stay for the wedding. There is lots to do so I might not get too many posts up next week. But follow along on IG (@mymonochromaticlife) for all the fun!

Ok so I do some very part time work with local boutique Apricot Lane, and it's basically part work part shopping. I saw this tee shirt in one of their posts and I knew I had to have it. "Not Today Satan" has the perfect level of snark for me. Based on the brand's other tees it might not be intended to be snarky, but it is for me because that's how I read it.  You ever wear something and everywhere you go people ask where you got it? That's this shirt. The tee I think might be sold out but now it comes in a sleeveless tank. The distressed details at the top are everything. Although when Reese pulls on it, (cause ya know, why not?) I look a little more like I got attacked by a wolf. #momlife. I kept it simple with my favorite black distressed jeans, black cardi and the best peep toe booties of all time. A few delicate jewels (feel free to layer up these babies) and I am ready long day of errands or happy hour with friends!
