Happy Nordstrom Anniversary Pre-Sale kick off week!!! Ok, so it doesn't start until Thursday but I've been counting down since the last sale ended!! I'll be shopping the sale on Thursday, and I'm sure if you follow me on Snapchat (carylee07), you will be the first to see what I've bought! I will be sharing on the blog, too, obviously, but just a heads up in case you're impatient like me! But onto today's post!
Let's give you an abbreviated family tree, shall we? I have an older sister and younger brother. My sister has the only grandchild in the family so far and he turned 1 last September. The husband is the oldest of 4. He has two sisters and one brother. The older of the two sisters is married with two little boys. The younger of these two boys celebrated his 1-year birthday this weekend! Did you follow all that?! His actual birthday is in June, but you know how crazy summers are that sometimes things just happen when everyone's schedules finally align! The sister in law asked if I would take photos, and of course the challenge was accepted. After all, I have the cutest subject ever to photograph!
Since I had to take my camera, I certainly had to take my favorite camera bag. I wore wedges since I figured I'd be running around in the grass, and the weather was perfectly comfortable (read: not terribly humid) for a non-tank top. Shorts and a tee it is!
I scored this LOFT tee during their 4th of July sale. I love a good basic with pretty details like this! It's really lightweight, which makes it appropriate even in 90 degree temps! Contemplating other colors….
The party was in my mom and father in-law's backyard. They have such an amazing outdoor space with the trellis, counter space, and even a pizza oven! I'm so jealous of all of it! Better outdoor living space is one thing I wish that our house had!
Isn't he a doll? So handsome and his cakes were pretty impressive, I might add! As you can see, everything was dinosaur themed! The food consisted of pteradactyl wings (aka chicken wings), dino spikes (aka Doritos), and even spiked dino juice (aka sangria for the grown ups.)
I LOL'd when I saw this photo. This pretty much sums up the sentiments of a 1-year old waiting for their smash cake, amIright? He was bouncing and whining and basically saying "GIMMEMYCAKEWOMAN!" He ended up mainly eating the "leaves" off the cake and didn't mess too much with the cake itself before he finally had a cake coma! Ha!
Outside of that, the weekend was really productive. I have everything ready for my yoga and style workshop next weekend - it's been a lot of work and I'm both anxious and excited for it to be here already!!
As always, thanks for letting me share! Have a great week!!
