Mommy Professional #2

also can be titled: One Love (two, counting me)


My husband LOVES the band U2. Seriously. Loves Them! I understood the magnitude of this love when we were dating. We were on the couch making out having quality time one evening when a live U2 performance came on TV. We had to stop right there, like mid-kiss, and watch. I remember making some sassy, sarcastic remark—because I do that sometimes—and he responded with, “If I could just tour the world with U2 I would.” He is a smart man and quickly added “Aside from being with YOU of course.” I let it slide.

One more example. My husband and I have a somewhat strict rule about going to bed together as close to 10:30 pm as possible. It is for my husband’s sake. His alarm goes off at 5:30 am, and that man needs his sleep. Well, a few years back, U2 was performing live on the David Lettermen show ALL WEEK. As I caring wife, I was concerned for him to stay up past midnight ALL WEEK. So, I logically suggested that he could DVR the U2 Letterman performance and then still be able to get a good night's rest. He just gave me a look and replied, "If you were on t.v., I would not DVR you." I responded, "Good to know I'm up there with U2."

And then sometimes his love for U2 really benefits me. Like when he comes home with a cool shirt that he wishes could fit him, but instead is only in my size.

Cue shirt…


I decided to go cool, rock mom (circa 1988) with a professional touch with this outfit.

I paired this shirt with my black pin stripped slacks.


Cue pieces to complete the outfit…


Fedora hat (copying Bono), flashy diamond & white watch, red platform sandals (for Bono’s RED campaign).

Cue outfit…


How can my husband resist this? Bono and my chest all in one glance.


One Love

One Life.

Pin It!

too funny.....
and the outfit looks good!
I hate pants.I have never found a pair that fits. my hips & waist are not proportionate and I hat the feel of clothes hanging, clinging, off-center, etc. jeans and yoga pants are about it in the pant category for me.

Great outfit! I have been into loose fitted basic tees lately. Best line, "Bono and my chest all in one glance."
