OOTD- Easter Dress (or skirt)!

Ever since I was a little girl my mom would buy me a new dress every Easter.  As I have gotten older I still think I should get a dress each Easter or skirt as the case may be!  As soon as I saw this skirt I had to have it!  Here is what I wore to church yesterday...
Cardigan Anthropologie
Anthropologie Scalinata top
Anthropologie San Pedro skirt
Jessica Simpson Kendale Pumps

Here is me with my girls all in our new Easter dresses!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter!

*If anyone else is trying to track down these shoes Zappos just got some in!*

Happy Easter!

In Spring 2000 I visited the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem, I was able to go inside the tomb and see the spot where the body of Jesus Christ was laid to rest, it was a sacred and special experience.  I love this holiday and the good news it brings, just like the sign at the Garden Tomb reads "He is not here: for He is risen" that statement proclaims the completion of His earthly mission.  We can find joy and peace in that knowledge.  
*a picture of me at the Garden Tomb- a long time ago!

I saw this video and was so moved by it I had to share.  Please take 3 minutes to watch it and feel the special spirit of this Easter season. 

In our hour of deepest sorrow, we can receive profound peace from the words of the angel that first Easter morning: ‘He is not here: for He is risen.’”
—President Thomas S. Monson

OOTD- Mom clothes!

I am contemplating a trip to Nordy's today to beg them to track down these in seafoam and a size 6 1/2, to return my JS nude shoes because I ordered them in 2 sizes.  I am still trying to decide (as she gets her keys and kids loaded up!)  Last night my daughter said "Mom I hate McDonalds every time I order a hamburger they NEVER put ANY ham on it..." which begs the question: why are they called hamburgers?  (Yes I take my kids to eat fast food and yes they get McDonalds judge away folks, cause that's how I roll.)  Seriously if you know can you tell me?  Here is what I am wearing today...
Top F21: Slub Knit Top
Anthropologie Pilcro cords: similar here
Belt Anthropologie Snake Bite: similar here
Boots Anthropologie: similar here

 *I have been really impressed with F21's offerings lately!  I just ordered this dress after eyeing it for awhile!  I figured for that price it was worth a try!*

Etsy LOVE!!!

I will openly admit it... I LOVE Etsy!!!  I am addicted to that site, and spend countless hours on it looking around.  I wanted to share a few of my favorite items that I have recently purchased!!!

First up:  New pillow's for my couch (I ordered both in the picture)
I am so in love with this pillow!!!  It's on it's way, but I cannot get enough of the Chiang Mai Dragon fabric!!!  Find it here

Next up Easter decorations I had to get these little guys:
I had to order a few of these guys for my "Easter parade" they are so sweet and whimsical, and they are such a great price!!!  Get them here.

I LOVE this artist and purchased my first prints from her in 2009:
I have this little print hanging in my daughter's room and just adore it!!!  Buy it here.

I ordered a new cell phone cover because I just got a new iPhone:
I actually ordered it with the stripe in grey and my name in a Tiffany blue.  The shop I ordered it from is closed for now :( but here is the link if you wanna favorite it for when it opens up again.  I also found another shop that makes them too.

And Lastly I ordered a necklace:
You may have seen this little pretty number before... I have been eyeing it for QUITE a while and finally pulled the trigger!  It will match my new skirt I am telling you the picture does not do it justice!!!  You can buy it here and find Rachel's cute blog here.

So that's it folks, here is a run down of my latest Etsy purchases!!!

*I was not paid or given anything free for any of these product promotions, I just love them all that much!!!

OOTD- Miracles happen everyday!!

First off my hubby found my wedding ring last night!!  He found it on the floor by the bed (he thinks it fell out of one of the 100 pillow's on our bed.)  The first thing my little boy said was "it's because I said a prayer mommy!"  I started crying because that is EXACTLY why we found it.  He has prayed that we will find it since February 27th (the day that it went missing!)  I am sooooo happy, now I am afraid to wear it in case I lose it again (plus it's sitting in the cleaning solution.)  

Today we are going to go and meet up with a builder (we are thinking about building a home) but need to nail down a price before we decide!  I am dressing up so they don't think I just came from the trailer park;)  Here is what I am wearing today...
Anthropologie Ad Infinitum Blouse: similar here
Anthropologie Peppered and Striped Skirt: my next cute skirt here
Anthropologie Waving Grain pumps: similar here
Necklace Brighton

*Last night (before my miracle happened!)  I went to runners corner and had them help me find some running shoes.  I found THE most comfortable shoes EVER!!!  If you have a neutral gait and are looking for some great shoes I HIGHLY recommend these!  Hopefully they will help me improve my stride/time, but I am afraid my new shoes can't work miracles!*
