BIG NEWS: Today is my mom's birthday!
Dear Mom, happy birthday to the sweetest, most adorable woman in the world. I smile when people tell me that I'm just like you, what a compliment!! I love you! Happy 51st!
Obviously this is not a recent picture. It was taken 9 years ago in Washington DC;
it remains our favorite picture of us ever taken.
We maybe need to do a remake at my wedding....just a thought...
Other big news: I went thrifting for the first time today. Yes, shocker, a blogger who had never thrifted before?! Can it be so?! Indeed it can. I've always said I'm an anomaly... Here's the deal, you guys have inspired me to find cute real vintage stuff at super cheap rather than pay $40 for an imitation vintage dress from a website. I really just went in there to find some things for our reception but I came out with 4 dresses! I'm going to be looking like Jackie O. every time I wear one of these and that absolutely thrills me! Photos? Well duh..
This is one of the dresses. I belted it and threw on some of my grandmother's pearls. J'adore.
These are not thrifted, they are my own, but you needed to see the shoes that made the outfit.
I did find some vintage stuff for the reception. Ie this little set.
And this lantern.
And this little bowl (it also had two matching plates).
All in all, it was productive for my first time at it. Hopefully I will be getting some good photos of the birthday dinner tonight and will have those up eventually.
Oh and these next photos are per Kaysie's request, so don't think I'm braggin ;)
Okay, okay, I got a little carried away there for a minute! Have a lovely Monday, friends.
