Hi everyone! It's been a while! We are starting in on week two of our vacation in the hottest state on the planet at the moment, Arizona. It's been fun though...no complaints! Hubby and I had a fabulous time for a few days sans kids (thanks to my wonderful in laws for taking them for us!!!) in Scottsdale at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. Oh my goodness, it was heavenly! We enjoyed a few days to ourselves and managed to fit in a lot...we lounged by the pool a few times, went shopping a few days, had some great meals out together at nice restaurants, made a few trips to the gym, got a massage, saw a few movies...like I said, heavenly. By the time we left I was starting to miss my kiddos though so it was the perfect amount of time away. It was just what we needed after a crazy few weeks.
We have one more week here in the desert before heading east to our new state. And when I say we're in the desert, I couldn't think of a more fitting word. I'm living in a sauna out here! It's been hot, for sure. I guess it's just preparing me for what's to come. Since we're still homeless for another week and a half I'm still living out of a suitcase and not quite on a normal routine, so the blogging will continue to be sporadic. Bare with me! I do have a few outfit shots to share with you today...I have a two-fer for ya! I wore my Modcloth version of the Layered Column Dress to church the last Sunday we were in CA and then decided to bring it on our trip since it's such an easy piece to pack...it hardly wrinkles. I wore it again, just a little differently,last Sunday. Here's how both outfits panned out:
What I Wore
Building Your Repertoire Dress-Modcloth

Similar looks, yet different...all it takes is some different jewelry and a new color of shoes and you have a whole new look!
So I mentioned hubby and I did a bit of shopping while we were on our little getaway...I picked up a few things, but our last night there hubby surprised me by taking me into Kate Spade and having me pick out a new wallet and purse for MY graduation present. No, I didn't actually do any graduating myself but I think I managed to pulled my weight on the home front the past 4 years.
Here's the cute purse that's currently hanging on my shoulder:
Love!!! It's a reddish-coral color...so in for summer! I've been carrying a very neutral color bag for the past many months so this is a fun way to change it up. Happy graduation to me! =)
Alrighty, off to a family dinner. Hope your week gets off to a great start! We don't have any big plans for this coming week...just some swimming, a little shopping, some more visiting, and celebrating my youngest son and hubby's birthdays at the end of the week. Fun times!
Have a good day!
