outfit of the day(bird): the big brain theory




entire outfit ~ thrifted

i have a theory about brains as we get older. ok, maybe it's just a theory about my
 brain as i get older. ok, maybe it's just a rationalization on why i am constantly forgetting things as the years go by.*

here goes:

i believe that as i grow older, i am using my brain more and more for remembering stuff for my kids, so those memories are pushing out things i learned in school. let me tell you, i remember when every doctor appointment is, when every birthday party is, when it's beach day at school, when homework is due, and i buy every present that needs to be bought for every occasion for both kids. you get the idea, i have a lot to remember, and i remember it all.

but ask me when the war of 1812 was fought, and i might not have an answer for you.

thank goodness for the internet!
xo,

* as i was typing this, i thought to myself that maybe, just maybe i have written a post about this already.

  2. Ha ha!! Like minds, my friend!
    Now, this outfit is spot on for this time of transitional weather, a little crispness in the air, but not quite cool enough for a parka per se. I love it! Jeans, yes and thank you! Cut??

  3. I'd still this idea but I don't have kids. Does a dog count?

    Love those boots!

  4. that is really true! i don't have kids, but i could definitely see that. my brain is full of useless knowledge i wish i could "clean out" like remembering my flag corp routine from 1994. this serves me no purpose in life lol. or how i remember random facts but don't remember important things.
    looking great btw!

  8. You're remembering more than I! I can't seem to remember what I'm doing at any given point these days. And I'd never remember if you had written about this subject before. Ha!:)

  9. Love the country vibe of this outfit! I have forgotten A TON from school. Thank goodness for my planner (and yes, the internet!) or else I'd be a total mess :)

  10. Love this look, especially those boots! And I hear ya about remembering things. If it wasn't for the internet and my calendar, I'd be lost. :)

  11. Look at it this way - remembering all those things for your kids just makes you an awesome mom!

    I love your boots. Crazy amazing!!

  12. Hahahahahaha, great chuckles here Megan! I can remember so many of those details even today about my kids AND their kids, too. It is the 'attention to detail, multitasking' that women are so gooooood at. Ya, when was the War of 1812 fought, anyway? LOL

    I love those boots!!!! I love that specific color!

  14. You look so cute in this outfit! I've always had a good memory, but sometimes I forget the most simple things. The internet is definitely a life saver! :)

  15. Wait, what? We're SUPPOSED to remember stuff from school? Crap...

  16. Oh, I have the HARDEST time remembering things I learned in school... and I was pretty good at school. Apparently finding some wrinkles in my brain is too difficult!!

  18. Haha! I used to be able to remember everyone's birthday, but that's totally a thing of the past. Also, I just remembered I don't know my own kid's social security number. I should work on memorizing that today! I love your plaid!

  19. This is such a cute look! So jelly that you thrifted all of it! HA! I totally agree with this post! :D

  20. Love the plaid! I like your theory about remembering things. I feel like I have a hard time remembering simple things (like why I went to a certain room or what I was going to say). But ask me what I was wearing 7 years ago, and I can tell you a detailed description...

  22. love the outfit, I dream of red cowboy boots like that! and I can totally relate to you about the brain stuff...my 15 year old stepson asks me for help with his homework, I feel like a moron because I have blocked out most of 7th grade and on...

  24. First things first - I love this outfit and now I need cowboy boots! Secondly - I am totally on board with your theory of pushing out memories to make new ones. Last night my daughter asked how many states there were and I honestly had to think for a minute then answered 52 - to which my husband said "Mommy's confused there's 50 states and 52 weeks in a year" yep. Brain officially scrambled.

    I love your outfit! Your boots are fantastic!

  26. i completely agree. i swear i can't remember the stuff i want to remember, & the stuff i want to forget or don't give a rat's about is wedged in my brain.
