when we are together, making silly faces is kinda our thaaaang.

 dress: belk / belt: f21 / finger candy: adornjoy and gift from friend/ shoes: guess
tights: courtesy of welovecolors / nails: sally hansen sonic boom + wet cement / watch: fossil 

as many of you know, i have spent the past 8 years of my life in Chicago, only flying home for Christmas and then one week out of the summer each year. i totally wanted to fly home more but at the time, that college student and recent college graduate did not have much money. so this weekend, when i got the chance to spend Mother's Day at home with mom and the family, it made it extra special. we gave her an extra big gift card to one of her favorite stores so that she could shop to her heart's content. then after church, took her out to one of her favorite Chinese buffet restaurant. mmm, we ate till we were stuffed full and laughed too loudly. it was blissful and perfect. 


i guess we could say we had a pretty fun Mother's Day.

(extra special note to Kristine: we missed you and quoted that one particularly hilarious Mother's Day .  
i'm with you. i love you. you know which one i'm talking about!) 

much love.
[happy tuesday, friend.]
