Hmmm, what's in here?
Diego backpack for the plane ride. Doesn't he look ready for school? *Tear*
Now Santa, I just want a white NY Christmas! Make it happen!
Fashion Friday is brought to you by the fab, Summer.
This is what I wore for the Mom's Club Christmas Party this week. I had to get all fancied up because I'm on the party planning committee. Sounds important, huh? Not really. It just means that I cooked and made crafty little snow globes until my fingers fell off.
Anyway, I was getting ready and I slipped my shoes on forgetting to take off my snuggly knee high Christmas socks. I looked in the mirror and loved what I saw. I asked the hubs if they could fly. (He usually doesn't like my outfits, so I was prepared for the worst) He said I kindof looked like the legs from the Muppets, but it was festive and he liked it. SERIOUS?! Awwww yeah!
I headed out to the party and quickly realized I was overdressed, and that everyone was glancing down at my feet. One mom said "you look so fashionable!" I think that is code for "you are dressed really funky". There were several moms there that I hadn't met before. One asked me if I was just there to help with crafts. When I told her "no, I'm a mom", she asked if I was a teenager. Mmm, thanks? It's so obvious I don't fit in with the "normal moms" in my mom's club.
Whatevs, I didn't even care. I loved my sparkly, festive, muppetish outfit and I love being a mom.
Moral of the story? Dress to make yourself happy, be comfortable in your skin, and just be you.

So you want to see wedding pictures? Get comfy. Well, there actually aren't tons, because everything is packed and this is just what I can find.
I was so excited to run out to the limo in the snow!Our reception was at a hotel that had an indoor courtyard that felt just like outside, minus the freezing and snow. It was all decorated beautifully for Christmas, but I can't find any pics of that!

We are both breakfast fanatics, so we decided to have a breakfast buffet reception. We had eggs, all sorts of breakfast meats, blintzes, fruits, pancakes, pastries, crepe and omelet stations, muffins, and breakfast potatoes. And maybe some more stuff that I can't remember. I want to eat it again. Right. Now. It was amazing and exactly what we wanted. It was the perfect blend of a southern, serve yourself wedding, and a northern, 5 course, fancy schmancy wedding.
In our 4 married years, we have lived in 3 states, made 2 cross country moves, and have 1 beautiful baby boy that makes life amazing. I am extremely blessed!
Happy Anniversary, Billy. I love you!
Don'tcha love the one sock?
