The Black Dress

Dress - Vintage (from my grandma)
Shoes - Chrystina's
Bow - local store in my town!

This past weekend, my dad went to Vegas to visit his girl, and I was left to look after the kiddos. I finally got a new car! (i blew up the motor in my old beauty, my little vw rabbit 6 long months ago) and we've been having a blast. Our local thrift store had a 50% sale these past 3 days, and we went to 2 of the day and got so many treasures! Mostly items for around the house (and man, i don't mean to brag, but i have sure made this house cute since i moved home), but I picked up some gorgeous vintage dresses for Kira, and she adores how different they look to all the modern day clothes. We spent a lot of time at our new favorite park, they have 2 ponds and the kids are allowed to feed the ducks!
I need to get better at posting, it's on my goals list for this week! School is ending, i'm just feeling like I have no weather appropriate clothes for this amazing 40 degrees we've been feeling in Yucaipa.

My New Favorite Dress!

outfit Details
Dress - Vintage; thrifted
Belt - Philippines
Sunnies - Vintage; thrifted
Shoes - Chrys's

I bought this dress for $10 over the weekend at my favorite thrift store. I wore it to class today, and I'm pretty sure everyone thinks I'm weird, but oh well. Sorry about the ugly background in my photos..The sun is setting way too early, and I had Chrys take these photos as we were exiting a thrift store this afternoon. I didn't want to miss the chance in this dress!

How are you enjoying the time change? I left the time on our stove an hour ahead (instead of moving it back) and I've been getting all the kids to bed at 8:30 (because they think it's 9:30!) am I mean? or just clever? I'm loving this extra hour of peace though!

Halloween Party (better late than never)

My friend Chrys and I threw the most magical Halloween party! 12 of our closest friends came by and we danced the night away. I was an owl (i made my skirt!), and my lovely friend Magaly did my hair and makeup! (shes the gangsta' in the photos). I have been awful at posting, schools been busy, and so have the children. Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween! And I'll end this post with a photo of Kiersten's ever growing baby bump.
