Weekend Wrap-up...No Wrapping Paper Necessary...

Worn Saturday, April 7



Dress-Mica/Shoes-Me Too/Blazer-Gap/Necklace-Mexico

I have no idea where this dress came from or how old it is. Saturday I was digging through my closet trying to find something to wear to a family christening and I stumbled upon this dress folded up on the floor of my closet...what a fabulous present to me. When I tried it on I was confused by the neckline, but after I realized the deep scoop goes in the back, I  danced around my closet in joy...a new dress. I can imagine wearing it this summer with strappy flat sandals and a denim jacket.  I am on the hunt for dresses that can be worn this summer to work and then out on the weekends...

Sunday was Mother's Day.  Every year my mom and I wake up early and go downtown to walk the 3 mile Y-Me Breast Cancer Race.  We had a beautiful day this year, 65 degrees and sunny. 
Pardon the quality of the photo...no makeup, early morning iphoto...
After lunch we always go to Stanley's for the brunch buffet...so much good food in one place...southern mac and cheese...waffle boats!  After gorging ourselves at breakfast we always go shopping then home to the men...and boys.
When I arrived home, my boys surprised me with a dozen pretty roses and great handmade cards.  I thank every day that I am lucky enough to be Jack and Alex's mom. After a much needed, too short, nap we went to my mother-in laws house for dinner.

I'm so happy you had such a lovely Mother's Day. You and your mom are adorable in that picture, early morning and all :)

Also, I'm not exactly sure what a waffle boat is, but I'm pretty sure I need one right this moment...
