outfit of the day(bird): family fun




shirt~ Marshalls
shorts~ b. (a resale shop)
shoes~ Urban Outfitters

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. We had a fun and busy one, full of family. We spent the weekend with Jim's grandma, his parents, his two sisters and their husbands and kids, and a couple of his aunts and uncles. We did a lot of swimming, visited the farm where Jim's dad grew up, ate a ton, talked and laughed and cried. Right before we arrived, Jim's aunt found a letter that his late grandpa had written to him when he was 8-years-old and it was so heartwarming and sweet to read. Such a beautiful treasure for Jim to take home. All in all it was a great time, save for two tough nights in the hotel when both of my kids refused to go to sleep. Now we are back to reality. Jim is back to work, Mimi starts school tomorrow, and I have to get my butt back to the gym! And Ben is just happy he doesn't have to share a room anymore. Frankly, so am I!

  16. Ugh. The hotel room with the whole family. This just doesn't work for us anymore. My husband snores and both of my kids are all over the bed. I am the one that ends up getting the worst nights sleep. I am loving your clogs. I have been eyeing up getting a pair.

  17. I had clogs like that when I was in...grade 7 maybe? Yikes. That just dated me. LOL

    How sweet to find the letter.

  18. That sounds like such a fun trip! I'm such a sap for the sentimental stuff like letters - I have all of my aunts scrapbooks and found letters my dad had written to her while she was away at her freshman year of college (and he was about 8 years old). Things like that are so much fun to hold onto!
