Okay, it hasn’t been all that long. But it feels like it because a lot happened! No official weekend report because I was so overdue in Life Management that I had to spend every precious minute on Monday morning organizing and prioritizing.
I am overdue for a ‘real’ weekly review and feeling it! And now we’re going into a new month — oh dear. Somehow Q1 always seems to speed by for me — I think it’s all the pent-up anticipation and new tasks I’m trying to cram in.
WELL. It’s far too late for a weekend update, but I cannot skip sharing these wedding photos — Josh and I had a lovely date night (including a hotel stay in MIA) and it was fun.
The event was held at Vizcaya and it was beautiful in every respect. I did end up wearing my RTR gown but it had to be altered with safety pins (straps too long = risk of indecent exposure). I love the idea of RTR . . . but I almost always struggle in practice. The options for petite women are limited and even when promised to be petite (as this one was), often I find they aren’t really. (I think a lot of times RTR just hems the gown and calls it petite. THAT IS NOT REALLY PETITE. This would explain why the size label did not say “P”, which I did complain about, and was offered a whopping “15% off my next order” in consolation. ANYWAY.)
The rest of the weekend was spent doing kid-centric things, once we got home. I took Cameron to a bookstore and took this picture, which about captures his current essence.
And in MUCH more important news . . . my sister had her baby last night!!!! AND SHE IS SO PERFECT. I am dying to meet her but alas she is in NC and I am stuck here (for now).
I am anticipating ALL kinds of cousin adventures with this one — she is closer to G’s age than A or C! Disney 2024!? Cannot wait. My sister is so happy and doing well.
She’s here!!! And oh, those cheeks. I think your niece is bigger than my baby is right now 🙂
She’s 7 lb 8 oz – perfect level of squishiness!!! I am dying to see her in person!! ❤️❤️❤️
Congrats to your sister! What a beautiful baby! I bet you can’t wait to get your hands on her!
I’ve never done RTR and I don’t think I would because I would be paranoid the dress wouldn’t fit. If I lived in a city with locations where you can try on the dresses (like NYC), I would totally try it out for special events. Despite the dress not fitting right, you looked beautiful! I wouldn’t have guessed you had to do some altering with safety pins and such! I hope you were feeling well enough to enjoy the night!
I just want to tell you that you did a great job on your solo podcast yesterday and I would totally listen to your plannercast.
thank you <3
Just wanted to say that you look AMAZING in that dress / color, wardrobe malfunctions or no! It looks gorgeous.
aww thank you!!
Dress is really hot!! So glad your niece is here happy and healthy. 😊😊
thank you! and yes she is so cuuuuute
Oh my goodness, those cheeks! Congratulations to you and your family!
Oh she is adorable!! Congrats to you and your sister and your family on the new addition! Gosh I miss baby cheeks.
congratulations !!! you look amzing in that dress .
i have a question about hobonichi techo cousin , and i ordered the cover which would nt fit ? not sure how do i order the right cover? i ordered from Japanese website
Hi! Just make sure you pick a cover in the “A5/cousin” section, and you’ll be fine!! On the website, the A5 cousin books have all of the covers shown UNDER the books. I’d link it but it doesn’t copy/paste!
AMEN to the “not actually petite”. This is why I generally don’t consider thrift or consignment shopping an option. Regular people clothes don’t fit well, and the available inventory of petite sizes isn’t worth the time investment. By the time I pay for alterations to make a piece fit properly … well, I could have just gone to one of my trusty brands and skipped the time involved with alterations.
Yay for Macgyver alterations – looks like it was a fun evening!
