Mother’s Day was just wonderful! The weather had threatened to be chilly and it was just perfect for a picnic. My children blessed me with a sweet gift they had put together. They decorated a box and each of them (with my husband’s help) wrote a note promising to do a certain job for me this week. They are going to keep this box and make it a mailbox and put little notes in it for me. So sweet! I just loved it. Mother’s Day just gets better and better as my children get older and actually understand the reasonings behind these holidays. 🙂
My husband totally surprised me with a new camera, so I was pretty exited about that. We have some projects planned for the blog and business and needed to upgrade in order to do those projects. I wasn’t planning on it happening anytime soon though, so this was a big surprise.
My baby is 16 months old, and has pretty much stopped nursing. *sniff* So I finally am able to wear a dress again! 🙂

My sweet baby and I on the walking trail! She was happy during this part – a lot of the day she was terribly fussy!
The lovely Cameo Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose. My bangs finally grew out long enough to pull back the sides in a mini clip. Two other ladies showed up at church wearing this exact same clip in different sizes. We got a good laugh out of that!
I just purchased this dress and it was my first time to wear it today. We were getting ready for church when my husband told me that he could see my bra straps on the back of the dress through the white sweater. My mind started spinning with solutions of how to fix it so I could still wear the dress and make it modest. 🙂 I put on a tank top I had from Old Navy that was lower cut, it was navy blue so it blended in nicely, and covered up my bra straps. I know that some ladies have no problem letting their straps show, but I think it is best to cover them at all times. 🙂 Bra straps can be a visual allurement to men.
Most of my outfit came from one store! I recently went on a shopping trip with my sister and spent Birthday money on clothes. It was fun. 🙂
