These "Spring" weeks have felt long. Very long. Maybe because it is only in the 30s and 40s!? Hoping this weekend will change that with temps predicted to be in the 60s! Thank God!!!


The Boston MS Walk is Sunday and (most) of the snow is gone so that is a plus! Also this ecard couldn't be more true and I should know because this will be my 7th year participating! Oh and I'll be even more awesomer this year with my new orange Saucony sneakers! {LOVE!}

I need to do a whole blog post soon on my new obsession, Young Living Essential Oils. They are amazing! I love them so much and can't wait to tell you more about what I've been using them for. I love diffusing the Allergy Trio (seen above) and think it really helps! Also I've added the NingXia Red to my smoothies and it is so good. Yup obsessed may be an understatement!

This week at our monthly Fashion Plates meeting we threw a surprise baby shower for one of our members, Stephanie. Her baby is due May 30th (being carried by her best friend hence the wine). We are so happy for her and loved showering her with cute baby gifts! I can't wait to meet the baby and to find out if it will be a boy or girl!!!!

Ella "lost" (dentist had to pull since new teeth were already growing in) her first 2 teeth. They were SO loose but just wouldn't fall out on their own! Hopefully the Tooth Fair hooked her up!

Since none of you helped me out in my previous post I'm sharing this again. Above are 3 dresses on Rent The Runway. . . I like them but am nervous to take the plunge b/c what if the one I pick doesn't fit/look good and then I have nothing to wear to Emily's wedding? VOTE! Like one, none, all?!?!

Linking up with Friday Favorites and Five On Friday.


  1. I've been using Young Living Oils for ten years and they have been life changing. An MD friend introduced me to them. She has had me for years on a daily blend of 3drops Frankincense, 2drops Copaiba, and 1drop Helichrysum. I also put Valor on my brainstem every day. In addition to that, I use a wide variety of the oils for all kinds of reasons. I credit them with helping me maintain stable my MS. I drank Ningxia Red for a while until we discovered I was allergic to it. But it's a powerful juice. Good luck!

  2. I'm so terrible at fashion, but since you asked...I really like the dress on the right.

  3. Yay for nice weather!! We do deserve it. Love your new orange sneakers! Good luck on Sunday!! I love the dress on the right. I too would be worried about the fit, as I have to have most dresses altered to fit my properly. It's a tough call. But it never hurts to try.

  5. Ok - for the dress - Sorry I didn't respond before - - - I say the third one - all the way to the right. The silhouette is flattering on every body. And the neckline is very classy. I find with V neck dresses there is sometimes a problem with the way it sits on me - or it makes me look like HELLO BOOBIES! The middle one just seems like it could look great or just AWFUL. So the third - all the way to the right - gives you the color and the cut of safety and awesome sauce.

    Happy Friday!

  6. Have fun at Walk MS Boston this weekend! I hope it's a wonderful day weather wise for a walk.

    I like the 3rd dress best but they're all pretty.

    How does Rent the Runway work? I have a black tie optional work gala I may need to attend in May, and I'm looking for dresses.

  7. That middle dress is my favorite!! I love the color block look.

    The someecard made me crack up. Happy Friday Jodi!!

  8. I looove the middle dress! Happy Friday!!

  9. I can't wait to hear how you're using YL oils, I've been using them for awhile, and have had some bumps, so I'm curious to hear how they're working for you. Love all the dresses, and the middle one is my favorite.

  10. Congrats to Ella, hope the tooth fairy was good to her. I'm not a fan of loud colors or florals so I'm no help on the dress situation.
