The past two weeks have been crazy. I've been running around takig care of too many things. This gem of a gift from @thejonesmarket has saved my sanity a few times! It's no secret that I love her necklaces. But this key wristlet is a game changer. It means I am not searching for the bajillion keys needed to run the building I live in. While I still feel like I have a set of janitors keys, they sure do look cute thanks to Candis! #thejonesmarket

thejonesmarket : Janitor keys πŸ˜‚. 😘😘😘 glad you like it girl.
josieortega : Cute! @thejonesmarket has been on my wish list ever since I saw yours! Fingers crossed for Christmas (or maybe I'll just order for myself and the girls and call it a gift for them).

This is the state of my house today. #thrivewhereistand

saraestey : Ditto. Except 75% of ours have been snapped in half.
kristinstew : How do you manage to keep them in one piece?!
thescribblepad : @saraestey @kristinstew ha! We have one container of broken crayons and one container of whole crayons. The broken crayons get melted into shapes, unfortunately incentivizing the breaking!
moomin_mama_anna : I feel your pain, only in our house it was books!

Not just another autumn leaf, blogger feet picture... // Did you know the forecast in DC was 81* today? It straight up felt like summer... // And these new toms, they are definitely more exciting than my worn out red ones. Did you know patterns scare me? I never know what to do with them. What would you wear with these shoes? // I've recently discovered that if I don't put my phone in my back pocket, my jeans are more comfortable at the end of the day. Does this sound crazy? Hello fall vest with your perfect pockets. I might wear a vest every day until Spring, if only for the pocket for my keys and phone!
thescribblepad : @ekday thanks for helping me think outside of my navy blue or sailor stripe box! 😘
thescribblepad : @momdiggity @aeharris7 yay! Thanks for the encouragement ladies!!!
thescribblepad : @thegoadabode twins!!
olive_thethings : Ah my Toms are due for replacing but I hate that uncomfortable period before breaking them in!!
ddmannina : We bought B that exact pattern for her birthday! #coolastheBster
thescribblepad : @ddmannina the coolest person in the world to be twins with! Yay!!
ahopefulhood : Best caption to a blogger fall feet pic! πŸ‘
kathleenharveyoils : I think that every time I wear a vest - want one in every color & style. Cute shoes, no advice.

Our past few days have been long, full, and good. I'm amazing by the Basilica every time we pass it, but it especially shines at night.
caroline_north : @thescribblepad D.C. Is such a gorgeous city

My skinny boy! Behr got himself dressed this morning from a pile of clean laundry and asked why his pants were short. Well, because they are his brother's 18 month pair. But they fit his waist! Does anyone have a recommendation for slim in the waist, long jeans? #behrrobert #hudsonmark
behrrobert - hudsonmark -
littlefpa : So proud of that boy for getting himself dressed! Great taste in kicks little dude. πŸ‘
thescribblepad : @christinevb123 @ashleykirnan @carlacward sadly, Behr is even too skinny on the tightest adjustable setting for gap or old navy 3Ts. 😬
thescribblepad : @kristinrafel I haven't tried children's place yet!
thescribblepad : @shannon_oertle crazy! @carlacward and I go to church/moms group together, how do you two know each other?
ashleykirnan : Bummer!!! He's stinkin cute though!
choisrus : Old navy skinny jeans pulled in at the waist! Also, try girls skinny jeans!
shannon_oertle : @thescribblepad lol mutual friend in Glover Park!
kelseyjsimmons : They look like they're up to no good!

Do you all follow along with #fridayintroductions? They are the chance to remind everyone who you are following and why they are in your insta-feed. I am Shannon and I live in Washington, DC with my family (husband and two boys) in a teeny tiny apartment. I'm a former politico who now mentors DC's finest interns because I'm passionate about people in their 20s. A bunch of you are new followers since Influence Conference, so let's open up some questions. Ask away! This is also my #stitchfixfriday post! I sat down and blogged today for the first time in a while, hop over for outfit (and my 14th stitch fix) details!
