Wrapper's Delight (outfit #52)

Today is my darling son's 7th birthday!  He is one of the most kind-hearted, handsome, and lovable children I've ever met, and I'm so proud that he's mine.  My husband and I taped streamers over the entrance to his room so that he would have to break out on his birthday morning.  I found him sitting in the sandbox this morning, and I asked him how he liked the doorway.  "It was really nice mom, but I'm sorry that I accidentally broke the bottom when I was trying to crawl out."  I explained that breaking through it was sort of the point and his face lit up.   We went inside and he ran through the streamers and yelled, "yay, seven!"  I made some chocolate mint cupcakes and we plan on taking the kiddos to the drive-in tonight (one of only 2 drive-ins left in Colorado!)  Next weekend we are having a big shin-dig to celebrate three of our children's birthdays, since they are all grouped together in May and June.  I only wish that he would have agreed to pose with me, but he's feeling self-conscious that he just lost a tooth.  Happy birthday, sweet Emery, we're so lucky to have you in our lives!
   Outfit details: 1950s wrap blouse, pencil skirt with beaded pocket detailing, and 1940s rhinestone "victory" brooch which is holding my top closed to ensure my modesty ;) are all from ebay.  My bakelite earrings are from an Antique store in Florence, CO

Love you a latte (outfit # 51)

Happy Mother's Day to all you fellow maternal gals!  I got this sweet 1950s wrap, house dress from one of my favorite vintage shops, the Robot Exchange, for Mother's Day.  The dress is a bit looser on the top, so it's super comfy to wear.  I just can't get over those cute coffee cup pockets!  The dress was deadstock, so in addition to being irresistibly cute, it is also pristine.  Love that!  It's going to be a fun week with the kids, because my husband's mother is in town from Florida, visiting for the first time in over two years.  We plan on lots of playing, swimming, and hopefully getting a rare date night to see the Great Gatsby.  Enjoy your week, lovelies!
