OOTW: Week #3

I am loving doing these posts and taking pictures! Dave is even getting in on the fun, he has started coming up with different ways to take pictures of the outfits. He is slowly becoming a little photographer, telling me how to pose and suggesting different layouts. Doing this has become a little bonding time for us each day, which is really great!

Here are the pictures from this week:

WHOOOOAAAA... Just realized I wore my shorts 3 times this week and my shoes every day...is this what you call a rut or just being comfy?  Also my goal is to purchase more skirts, I have tons of dresses but no separates. I think this would help space out the over usage of the only pair of shorts I have! But I promise I do wash them, so they don't smell!

Happy 4th of July!

 When I was a kid every year my mom, sisters, and I would wake up early in the morning to head up to Valleyfair, the amusement park in MN. The night before my mom would pack a large cooler with summer sausage sandwiches, pop, and treats while I laid in bed wide awake, to excited to sleep. We would arrive at the park right when it opened and stayed until after the fireworks. I would run right to the Merry Go Round, always starting my day off riding the horse up and down and round and round. I loved this tradition, it was one of few family traditions that we had. I looked forward to it every summer, the one day when we all would be together and have as much fun as possible! My oldest sister still carries this tradition out from time to time with her family, I hope to do the same with mine.

Here are some pictures that represent the Fourth of July for me:

Fourth of July means different things for different people. 
What does it mean to you?
How do you celebrate the holiday?

Treasure Hunt!

When logging into my etsy this evening, I found a wonderful surprise. Seven different people added my photos to their treasury lists! Seven treasuries in one day, it put a little smile on my face.

Check out the all the wonderful treasuries:

This has inspired me to do my own treasury one of these days! 
Keep a look out for it!
