Dress: Vintage – Fashion by Robert Black | Shoes: Sam Edelman – from DSW
Happy Fathers Day to my two favorite (grown up) guys. One brought me into the world (because the doctor was out of town so he literally brought me into the world!). The other one became my world 22 years ago. When I met Alan his kindness, honesty, and decency reminded me so much of my dad – I think that’s one of the reasons we fell in love so quickly.
Nice guys are the best! Happy Father’s Day to ALL the nice guys out there!
And it was my official Birthday. We celebrated both at a local restaurant with most of our family.
Since I feel like superwoman at times it was only appropriate to wear a vintage dress…with a cape! 😉 Only thing is no one told me the pretty little decorative flower on the back fell off. (It was in the car). So pretend you can see it on the back of the dress.
Hope you had a fantastic day as well.
Dress: Consignment – High Society in Scottsdale, AZ (it’s linen so of course it wrinkles when you sit down)
Having a parent live on each side of the country was an adventure for me. I loved flying to Arizona every summer to see my dad because, I’ve always felt Arizona was my home. Florida was beautiful, but it never +felt like home in the same way.
However, going to school in Florida mean most of my friends lived there. But with spending summers in sunny Arizona it was hard to celebrate birthday’s with my friends because they were all on the other coast. I think one year I stayed a week or two after school ended just so I could be with my friends for my 13th Birthday.
When I met hubby 22 years ago, it was right before my 21st birthday and we’ve been inseparable ever since, had kids right away, and once again, I never had much of a chance to celebrate my birthday with girlfriends.
Well, that finally changed this year. I decided that spending more time with those I love (aside from my family) is important. So took my girlfriends to Quiessence, the Farm at South Mountain for the most heavenly farm-to-table 5 course meal you’ve ever had! That is my favorite kind of food!
Thank you to my friends for making it a magical and unforgettable evening. Love you ladies!
Wait until you see what Alan Christianson & the kids got me for Mothers Day!
(They didn’t see it until Mother’s Day, but trust me I knew the recipient would think it was fabulous!)
You know how much I love to cook, right?
Well, I had ZERO desire to cook – or even let my hubby cook for Mother’s Day. Crowds be damned I just wanted to go out to eat…and so did all of the other Moms in my family.
So we did.
And I wore this happy yellow maxi dress, and gorgeous new turquoisy necklace.
I hope you had a fabulous Mother’s Day too!
