Getting Ready for the Creative Estates Conference

I'm Gettin' Pumped for Creative Estates!
Who's ready!?
.
.
.
Only a few more sleeps till this fabulously creative conference!  I can hardly wait.
There will be so many inspiring, talented bloggers there!
I've been a bit of a stress case trying to make sure I have everything in order.

- A few posts lined up
- A new Groopdealz deal to launch, while I'm gone.
- Hair done
- Nails done
- Maybe a new shirt???
(still on the hunt for that.  I wasn't worried until I read Becca's post, lol)

I've been ordering online lately, from Old Navy's Plus Size section on their site.
I always feel like it's hit or miss with them.
Like this shirt...


I feel like it's attacking me, and it makes me look like a linebacker! :(
But it was so CUTE in the picture on their site!
gah! ...
And,
I actually kinda liked this crazy neon yellow one...
...until my 3yr old walked in, while I was taking this photo and said...

"Ew, Mom!  I don't 'yike' dat one!  It's really too bright, and it hurts my eyes."

ugh...
Guess I would't want to blind anyone at the conference, now would I? lol.
Being a girl is hard!
(ps. If you DO see me in this yellow shirt, know that my attempts to find any OTHER new shirt, failed miserably)

Ooo!  And speaking of 'being a girl' ... guess what I'm getting tomorrow!?

Eeek!  I'm so excited! I can't wait to show you'all the difference!
Although, I would be freakin' ecstatic if my lashes looked even CLOSE to this girls's NORMAL ones. ha!
Jeesh... SOME people!  It's just never enough!
 hee hee...

  5. You always looks soooooo cute! I really like the yellow. You should keep it! I think you need to offer personal shopping for girls like me. I have the hardest time finding anything I like. I usually come home empty handed.

  8. I love the yellow shirt- and I hope you do wear it! I'm getting nervous planning my outfits- but i couldn't agree with your Old Navy comment more about it being hit or miss! I can't even remember the last time I bought anything there, and yesterday while shopping for CE scooped up a million things and walked out with 5 bags! HA! I'd say yesterday was a "hit"!

  9. I love the color of the pink one - so bright and springish/summmeryish? Maybe take off teh ruffles on the shoulders and keep the gather and make a cute little flowere bunch in a corner, or even add a different color of fabric flower with it? Just an idea.

  10. I actually like the yellow shirt. Nice and bright and spring-y! Can't wait to see you this weekend. I'll be the one without my nails done, and in need of a haircut. ;)

  19. actually they're both pretty fabulous. though i think the yellow one is my very fave. You can't go wrong with the bright colors!

  20. Personally, I think those shirts look amazing on you! Before I read your post, I wanted to ask where you got them bc you looked so good!! I love how you wear longer sleeves under a tank. I may snag this idea!

  21. I like the yellow shirt! I haven't even thought about what I'm wearing or nails. It's coincidence that I'm getting my hair done tomorrow. Oh man, one more thing to stress about.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just wanted to tell you that I think the yellow shirt is fabulous and you look so cute in it! Enjoy the conference!

  23. Girl, don't even stress about the conference, you'll do great! And you are beautiful!! Love your style and your taste so I'm sure whatever you pick out will look fab! I'm super jealous of your soon-to-be new lashes!!
    Good luck!

  24. Ugh I feel your pain girlie! I have ordered plus sized things from old navy that I have loved so much that I've ordered it again in a different color and the fit is so off that it's crazy. Their stuff looks so cute online but it's a gamble! Have fun on your trip- and I like the yellow!

  25. I love the yellow shirt on you! It's great for Spring! Have fun on your trip and wear that yellow shirt! :)

  26. Sunny girl... you rock that yellow and you are right.. the red has a big to much going for it.. Big girl clothes are SO hard to deal with. I am a size 14-16 so not exactly eclipsing the sun or anything but I still struggle to find stuff that fits well and is cute.. and as we hae established.. is for old people like me :)
