I can't believe they're..... Crocs! And other tidbits........

Today I wore a really simple and comfy dress that I have worn many times before. I even wore the belt that came with it for even less decision making this morning. And a bright, statement necklace is so trendy with stripes.
But what I really want to talk about are my new Crocs that I got in Chicago. That's right - these cute black LEATHER wedges are in fact..... Crocs. My Mom had a pair the last time she visited and I was impressed. Much like my recent Target purchase, Crocs do not come in half sizes. Knowing that we had our trip to Chicago planned, I knew I could try on the 8 and 9 at the store on State Street (right at the entrance to my fav hotel, The Palmer House). Cuteness and comfort - sold!
Funny thing, is my Mom and I also have these crocs. A few years ago, it was the other way around. I had gotten mine for our trip to Belize (for beach and pool) and continue to use them for the same purpose along with quick trips outside. When my Mom saw mine, she then got some.
A.B. Studio Dress w/ Belt - Kohl's
M. Haskell Necklace - Macy's

Okay, other observations from today..... my hair will no longer hold a curl. I am blaming it on pregnancy because I have not changed anything in my hair routine. This did not happen when I was pregnant with Richard, but every pregnancy is different. Of course, I did notice a change in my hair AFTER he was born. I had a few of the "best" hair days of my life, followed by a little hair loss (this is common with the hormone fluctuation). But this curl thing is so weird to me. It happens as quick as I leave my house to when I walk into the office. And I don't think it has been that humid out yet. So, this is what my hair looks like after I attempt to curl it. Hmmmmm.
I am getting to that point where people who don't know me carefully ask, "Are you having a baby?". I think it is brave of people to ask this question when they don't know the answer nowadays.
I indulged in a delicious treat at the new froyo shop that opened downtown. When I saw them post on Facebook that they had maple syrup and bacon as toppings, I couldn't stop thinking about it. Talk about the ultimate pregnant lady treat! In conjunction with froyo, they also have a bakery, and it is so awesome to see some new business in Battle Creek. Especially since they are taking advantage of the character of the old buildings. I swoon for original hardwood floors.
Speaking of downtown, here is some newer artwork on one of the buildings.
That's all I got for today... thanks for stopping by!

I love the stripes! And I love where you are wearing the belt. It is really good! Comfy cute shoes?! I would buy those in a heartbeat. They are so good! How was that yogurt? I don't know that I could do it. My husband and son would love the bacon.

I love that art work. Really cool!
