graduation attire

I finally picked out a dress to wear to Mark's graduation and my cousins wedding next month. The link below is the dress. It should be in in about 2 weeks. I'm excited! (I can't get the picture to copy in this, which is why I'm just putting the link.)

I splurged and got some fancy shoes. I think this is the most I've ever spent on dressy shoes, but I thought they were cute and they fit well and were as comfortable as shoes with this high of heel could be. Here are the shoes. I wanted to get a little shawl/cardigan type thing to wear with the dress. My friend Gail found the perfect one for me while we were at Dillard's and ask I was going to check out, the cashier said she thought they were in the process of marking them down. So instead of it being $29, it ended up being $8.70! I wish that happened every time I went shopping.
So I had the dress, cardigan and shoes and we headed over to Target where I found some nice earrings and a bracelet to go with it. So I think my outfit is complete! I'm excited.
Abbie was a really good girl while we were shopping. She LOVES being carried around where she can see everything and she's getting to the point where she reaches out to grab EVERYTHING. So we'd be walking through the dresses and she'd randomly grab on to them as we walked by. Kinda funny. I got her some cute things at Target too. I can't resist buying her clothes when I'm in those places, especially if they're on sale. I'm trying to get her warmer clothes now too since it's FINALLY cooling off here. (I love it! It's been in the low 80's lately which is so perfect.) Anyway, I got her a little onsie that says "daddy loves me", which is completely beyond true. She has that man wrapped around her pinky and he absolutely adores our baby. It's too cute and it makes me fall in love with him even more every time I see him with her.
Anyway, just wanted to share my finds with you! I'm so excited about them. Off to try carrots with Abbie again. Maybe she'll like them this time. =)

I LOVE that dress! I saw that a couple weeks ago when wedding dress shopping with my friend. I wish that was the bridesmaid dress we would be wearing!

Have fun getting dressed up for a night out with Marky-man!-Johanna
