This One is for You, Mom and Dad

My parents love my blog (heck my dad even thinks I'm funny), but they do often say that I don't take pictures of me smiling.  Well, here ya go, an entire shoot of me smiling.  I have a lot of stories to tell today and I want to get started because if I don't I might just explode or fall asleep.

This Saturday, Sam and I went to Fanny's.  Now what is great about Fanny's, is that they carry Diamond Star Halo vintage and guitars.  Sam is a musician and loves to play on different guitars.  While I'm perusing the AMAZING vintage, Sam is serenading the whole store, while his guitar gently weeps.  It is the perfect place for us to hang out because it meets both of our desires.  Afterwards we can gush to eachother about clothes and guitars. 

This skirt is making its debut on the blog even though I've had it for awhile, and I've worn it a lot.  It is my own little piece of Nickie from Wild as a Mink right here.

My friend Karen (a frequent commenter on here, but she's totally an IRL friend), had her baby today!  I'm so excited to meet their daughter.  My friends had this great idea at Karen and her husband's baby shower.  They passed out nips of liquor (the kind that are $.99 ya know) and gave us the rule that when they had the baby, we were too all toast to them no matter where we are.  I picked Goldschlager because I was sure I would have some Dr. Pepper around (my favorite drink combo).  I didn't, so I just shot it.  Cinnamon-ee and goldish. 

And, now I'm writing this the night before it goes up and I'm exhausted.  To bed it is.

  4. I love it! You have a beautiful smile!

    I love the colors in this outfit and whereas I would've belted it, you look lovely and comfortable without a belt. I need to try leaving off the belt sometimes!

    That's the coolest idea EVER with the liquor shots! Wish I'd done that at my own baby shower!

  5. um, that is awesome! cheers from everyone no matter where they are. ive bever had goldschlager...mostly b/c im scared of the gold bits!

  6. Love that skirt on you - beautiful colour and pattern.

    The baby toast sounds like a fun idea. All the best to your friend and her family :)

  7. I love that idea for a baby toast! What a great shower favor. I'm hosting a shower for my sister in law in a month and I'm definitely going to use this.
    ps. Love that skirt! The crochet/lace pattern reminds me of my wedding dress...

  8. whoo-hoo! glad you did the shot for baby amelia! we can't wait for you to meet her : )

  9. Your smile is enough to stop traffic, and I cannot tell you how insanely jealous of your hair I am.
    I hate you.
    P.S. "I hate you" is code for "I love you."

    Awww, thanks for the shout out and yes those are beautiful pictures. And yes blog, I am biased cuz I love to see my beautiful daughter's smile.

  11. For me and my BF it would have to be tools/video games and vintage... that would be random :) That skirt is super cute!

    You're so adorable! I love how you paired the yellow skirt with the red cardi. I probably would not have thought to do that... but then again I don't wear much red.
