the conversation about my bangs that made my sunday morning.

 dress: f21 / cardi: base exchange / tights: hue / shoes: guess
necklace: theblueballoon / ring: lusterbunny

so at church yesterday, i had this conversation with a 9-year old friend of mine.

S: (looking up at me with round eyes) wow!
me: haha, what?
S: did you get a haircut or something?
me: yeah, i got some bangs. 
S: (eyes growing bigger) WOOOW.
me: (trying to stay serious and not laugh) is that a good wow?
S: (nods head over and over again) oh, yeaaaah. that's a good wow.

 gotta love it. 
totally made my sunday morning.

 and how was your weekend, friend?

i don't know about you but i had a weekend that i didn't want to end. lots of good times, laughter and food with the family. we made a day trip out to bluffton/hilton head (will share pics sometime this week). found some GAP wide leg trousers on sale. ate too many peanut butter oreos (not that that's abnormal or anything). got orders completed/shipped and even worked on some new headband designs (debating on stocking them in the shop now or debuting them at Creative Estates). enjoyed an hour long video-chat with our sister in iowa - and had one of the laziest sunday afternoons in a long time (PJs, pizza and a two-hour nap).

here's to monday and a brand-new week!

much love.
[happy monday, friend.]
  
p.s. did you see the Much Love, illy giveaway happening over at Kaelah Bee's blog?!

  11. Hahaha, love it. I wish I'd gotten that kind of reaction about my new bangs! My parents didn't even realize I cut off SEVEN INCHES of my hair, let alone the bangs. Le sigh. I need a cute little 9 year old in my life... :)

  12. Love the velvet dress and the color of it! And as I've said before, I adore those shoes. Don't you just love the cute things kids say??

    Lazy sundays are the BEST! I watched a lot of movies/tv shows on Sunday and only ventured out for icecream at the end of the night. Success in my book!
