wedding outfits

In case you were all just absolutely sitting on pins and needles worrying about what I wore to my BIL's wedding...

I wore the black linen tunic and capris to the rehearsal, and the teal dress with nude open-toe pumps to the wedding.

And I can't remember if I took a pic of myself in either outfit.
And I killed the camera.
So yeah...

I kept the yellow floral print dress and will wear it to my boys' Baptism and another family wedding in May - the votes were split pretty evenly between the two dresses.

Thanks for helping me decide!

big news!

Last Tuesday J asked if we wanted to move to Milwaukee.

I asked him to show me the offer.

Offer was good - we are headed to Brew City!

I'll keep you all posted while I house hunt :)

need a diversion?

Life has been really heavy lately.

Help me pick my outfits for J's brother's wedding this weekend!

Rehearsal Dinner





Please note that J took these pictures, and he cannot figure out how to take a flattering picture of me. I have tried to help him, many many times, and he just can't do anything with a camera but hold it up and click the shutter. He has zero finesse with zoom or camera angle.

He totally does not understand that down shots hide my double chin.

But I still love him, so I'll just have to deal with it ;)

And can we also pretend that I have on makeup and am not rocking a greasy side pony?


ETA - J is standing in the wedding, and I know they will take family pictures, so think of me standing with a bride, 4 guys in tuxes, my MIL in a classic MOG dress and my adorable SIL, who always looks fab (and then my boys and nephews, who will most likely steal the show anyway)
