happy friday, all! i am so excited for the weekend! we have lots of fun planned, including visiting santa (here's hoping mimi likes him as much as she did last year! the santa pictures of most of my friends who have or have had kids her age are always pretty hilarious. they usually involve the child looking terrified or crying and screaming for mama and dada while the poor santa is sitting there, helpless and smiling awkwardly. i suppose this is what we get for teaching our kids stranger danger and then bringing them to the mall to sit on the lap of a strange, old, bearded man. especially when they are under the age of two and have no concept of santa whatsoever. real nice, parents). we also plan on going out to dinner tomorrow night. with mimi. this doesn't happen often, for obvious reasons. normally we like to pawn off our child on a family member before heading out for dinner in an actual restaurant (i am sure most of you have witnessed the meltdown of a young child in a restaurant/store/any public arena before. this is the fear of every parent of young children. thus far, she has been a very good restaurant patron and we have yet to have a "MAYDAY! ABANDON SHIP"! moment. but she is entering her terrible twos...), but we have a groupon that we need to use and it cannot be used for takeout (which we learned a couple weeks ago after ordering a bunch of takeout from said restaurant. oops!). so, out to dinner we will go, armed with cheerios and coloring books, and hope for the best. also, little eva bird is turning five this weekend. five, people! it feels like just yesterday that she was born, and now she is five whole years old. crazy. time seriously flies. she is having a little family birthday fete on sunday, so we will be there with bells on! busy busy fun fun weekend! thank goodness i already have all my christmas shopping done! *big sigh of relief*.
anyway, enough of my ramblings. here's the outfit i wore yesterday. megan and i had a business meeting earlier this week with the owner of b. (a resale shop), an adorable and incredibly affordable store in our neighborhood. and we, of course, couldn't help but shop after our meeting! this dress was among the many items i purchased. yes, it is a summery dress, but i just knew it would be able to pull double duty and work for winter, as well. and i was right! i think i will be wearing this one a lot, regardless of the season!
(it was really cold and windy yesterday. here is your proof).
dress~ b. (a resale shop)
