A Peek Into the Life of a Mommy Blogger: Light Up Night!

Last night was “ Light Up Night ” in Pittsburgh . “Light Up Night” is the beginning of the Holiday shopping season in downtown Pittsburgh . And it is a big party! I was excited about “Light Up Night” because a PR rep had emailed me and invited me to an event that would include members of the Pittsburgh Steelers , members of the Kool & The Gang and other fun stuff.     Since “Light Up Night” is a family affair, I convinced Andre and the toddler to walk downtown with me to enjoy the festivities.

A Glamorous Night for a Mom...

Even though I'm a mom, there are times when I still get out to kick it, sans baby, sans Andre, and I try to represent as well as I did as a single person.  After all, having a baby and getting coupled up does not mean that you have turned in your glam card now does it?! I was so thrilled with my outfit from the night below I just had to share it with my blog readers.  I also had to share the story of how the outfit came together so that my fellow moms out there could know that no source of inspiration should be ignored.  Also, everything can become new again if you know how to style it! The dress was new.  It was one of those somewhat generic, Macy's , Calvin Klein finds that always seems to go on sale.  And, I got this one for a steal. Somehow, it fit me like a glove, which made it special and made me take it home.  The shoes had never been worn, but I they had been in my closet for awhile.  They're really high and not the kind of shoes you wear while carry
