Thank you friends for all your support regarding my last post. I knew you all would be so encouraging and I so am thankful for every one of you! I am not ignorant that if you put something online, it will get copied, used, give someone inspiration and so on, but I think linking back and giving credit where it is due is always nice. With that, thank you. Also, I now know I need to work on a “cease and desist” letter, which Danni has been telling me to do for like ever, but oh to find the time! I have to work on finding some of that too! From the bottom of my heart, thank you friends…
Onto regular, fun, happy topics… I totally failed at “vintage here, vintage there” last week, but Rachel was on point with her cute outfits! Did you see them? If you didn’t, see it here. And her new blog layout looks just as spectacular, but really, would you expect anything less from Mrs. Denbow? I didn’t think so. This week we made sure to get dressed in some vintage wears and we were running out ideas of where to take pictures, but well… welcome to our uncut grassy backyard!
The last couple weeks True has really been stepping it up in the big sister department. She has really grown so much. I have seen a whole new depth of maturity come out of her and it is quite amazing. I am really eager to see how the three girls will react when babycakies comes out. Soulie is such a baby now, but she won’t be in three months. It really is crazy to think that I am going to have another. It never fails to astound me. I will definitely need a lot more of God’s grace.
Soulie is our little observer and copycat. Her eyes are always fixed onto her older sisters and what they are doing and she will make sure that she is right there in the midst of the action too. She doesn’t talk, but she understands a whole lot. p.s. forgive her wrinkled dress as these were taken after sitting in a car for an hour.
Our Bravey has her own little beat that she goes to. She is a little sister and big sister all rolled into one. She is nothing but sugar!
True and Brave pretty much know what they like to wear these days. We even have fights sometimes about what they will wear because what I think they should wear, isn’t always what they think they should wear. Oh boy! I can’t wait until we hit the teenage years! I wonder what that will look like…
As for what I like wearing these days, it is still maxi skirts. I put on this (the blue one) vintage dress first, I felt too frumpy, then I put on this vintage dress and it was much too tight, so I put on a trusty long maxi skirt and tank and all was well again. The morning was a bit cool, so I threw on an old denim jacket I had. I was ready to head out the door after 3 different outfit changes. What can I say?! I am pregnant. Actually, that many outfit changes would happen even if I weren’t. This drives Ben nuts!
on me: tank, forever 21. denim jacket, urban outfitters (10 years ago), skirt, thrifted. shoes, seychelles. wedding bands, one is vintage from here and the other two are these twig rings from here (bought when my rings didn’t fit when I was pregnant with Soul and had chubby wubby fingers).
on true: dress, vintage. sweater, vintage. sandals, sodas (gifted from a friend).
on brave: dress, misha lulu.
on soul: dress, vintage. pinafore, vintage. shoes, vintage. knit bow, made by me.
Funny story… I was about to load my pictures from my memory card into my imac when I accidentally put it in the wrong slot and it went into the CD slot instead. Man oh man. I panicked and tried to get it out, only to push it in even more. I thought to myself, “What a dingbat!” But then I googled it and found out it is a common problem and found this discussion to be helpful and I indeed did get it out. So if you are ever a dingbat like me (though it is partially Apple’s fault for putting both slots so close together), read this forum and it will help you.
If I had a waistline, I would wear: peasant floral, peasant rose, lemon chiffon, black eyed susan, and floral maxi.
I want these for my little ones: july 4th, stripes, overalls, sundress, bandana skirt, peaches and cream (and Ms. Tips is having a special 40% off children’s sale until tomorrow 11cst).
Head “over there” and see what the Denbow’s are up to! Have you heard? They have a new member of the family and her name is Sunday!!! My dingbatty self is now off to pay bills and patiently wait for my hubs to come home from work! Another day tomorrow, which means another chance to attempt to live it well (with God’s help).
