What an amazing week! We were on vacation for a good part of the week, I had planned this as a graduation gift to Sean. We left on Wednesday, and took our three oldest children to stay with my dad and step-mom ( a first to leave them there!) and my dad took them to all sorts of fun museums and parks while we were gone. My sister kept the two youngest girls for us.
Sean and I then went on to go see all the Abraham Lincoln sites in Springfield IL. We had never been there, and getting to tour the Lincoln Presidential Library was so neat. We both love history, so it was a fun place to go visit.
If you love the Civil war time period, this is a good place to visit!
One of my favorite parts of the museum was seeing all the clothing! This is the only picture I took before realizing you were not supposed to take pictures in this area. Some of the dresses were just breathtaking! When we left I told Sean I wanted to go find a civil war dress and bonnet to wear. 🙂
We went back to my dad’s house Friday night and met up with my sister’s family. Saturday we went to the zoo, and this is what I wore. I wanted something really cool, and this was perfect! I thought I had packed my short sleeve halftee, but I forgot it, so I made do with this one.
Someone honestly tell me, am I too old for braids? 🙂 I enjoyed the change, and wore my hair like this a lot while I was away.
Now we are off to the zoo!
It was slow going at the zoo, we had seven children and five adults to try to keep together. Two double strollers didn’t help, plus my girls wanted in their cousins stroller. Fun times. 🙂
Off to go see the animals! I love how I somehow find matching shirts on ThredUP for them!
We just got back pictures from the photographer who took pictures of the Rainbow Denim Maternity skirt for us! I love how they turned out, and had to show you a few!
What I Wore
Dress – From ThredUP – Hanna Anderson Brand
Cami – Halftee (similar to this one but it covers more of the shoulders)
Sandals – from Zulily (these are the shoes I had on when I broke my foot last year. I can’t believe I still wear them!)
Earrings – Homemade
Headband – We used to sell them at Deborah & Co. I’ve had requests to bring them back, let me know if you want to see them for sale again!
Makeup – L’BRI pure and natural. Love it!
