Recovering from a crazy week!!!

This has been one busy week! My in laws left to go home this morning...hope we didn't wear them out too bad! We were on the go constantly, but it was a lot of fun. We spent our last night out with them in Sausalito. We walked around for a bit and then stopped by the local candy store for some Salt Water Taffy (which I've eaten SOOOO much of today, by the way...bad!!!) and then had dinner at "The Spinnaker" restaurant right on the bay. The restaurant has the most amazing view of San Francisco outside their floor to ceiling windows all's really cool. It happened to be perfectly clear as the sun went down last night so we could see the Golden Gate off to one side and then the city, Alcatraz and the Bay Bridge off to the other. GORGEOUS! Today was spent just hanging out and recouping from the week. I got up, ran, cleaned up a little around the house and then went to a baby shower this afternoon. I felt like getting a little dressed up today but wanted to be super comfortable at the same time so I pulled out a Maxi dress I picked up from Forever 21 a while ago. At $15 you just can't beat the price! I actually bought 2 others just like in a dark blue and the other in a black and white Ikat print (Tricia wore it HERE). Three dresses for under $50...not bad at all! Here's how I styled the one I wore today:

-Rope Strap Maxi Dress-Forever 21
-Cardigan-Old Navy (2010)
-Sandals-Journeys (3 years old)
-Lucky Necklace-Macy's
-Ring-Forever 21
-Earrings/Bracelet-Stella and Dot

I highly recommend these Maxi dresses if you're in the market for one!

Before I sign off, I just wanted to wish all the mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day tomorrow...hope everyone has a great day with their families! I love being a mother and am so grateful for my three boys. It's the most rewarding job I could ever have...I wouldn't trade it for the world!

Enjoy your Sunday!
