(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Sisterhood of the Traveling Dress

This past week, M tried on a hand-me-down dress for my friend's upcoming wedding. This dress is NOT just any hand-me-down. I fell in love with this dress when I was searching out the perfect flower girl dresses for my nieces to wear six years ago. 

Me with my beautiful flower girls- August 2008.

As I am sure you can imagine, M would not take this dress off. She went off to accessorize with a crown and her special shoes. She then proceeded to wear it around the house all day. She kept trying to catch a glimpse of herself in the mirror and would twirl around the living room- so precious!

High tops are the new glass slippers, right?

When in a princess dress, one MUST curtsy!

Look at those beautiful eyes! This picture takes my breath away!

 I love that she loves this dress as much as I do and I can't wait for her to show it off at the wedding!


Please leave a comment and tell me that I am not the only sentimental fool out there!

    I STILL love playing hopscotch, so I guess I really loved it as a child. I have a huge soft spot for it.

    I've never heard of the chef card, but I can't even express how brilliant that is to have available. My daughter was vegan for a while so this would have been soooooo helpful.

  20. Ha, ha! I love "chalk therapy sessions." Those would be the best kind, even for adults. Chalk is so much fun and such a great educational tool while still being really cost effective when it comes to toys and entertainment.

  38. These are great ideas! A few weeks ago my daughter, Amber, went to the beach with a friend's family. One of the people she went with had a severe shell fish allergy. Since they were at the beach, they had to be very careful about where they ate!
