Pretend City - Birthday Fun For the Kids & SmogShoppe - A Green Wedding

WHITE WATCH - Sprout (exact)

Yesterday was a long day.  But a fun day.  It started off early with a party for the 2-year old of my best friend from childhood, Cardigan.  Cardi and I've been friends since preschool!  We went to Pretend City (the name that says it all).  Princess Sparkles and Pigtails were out of their minds as they "shopped" at the grocery store, played at "the beach," and went to the farm where they could "pick" fruit and plant "lettuce."  The long drive home was one of the best naps ever for the girls, and Camo and I finally got to listen to something other than "The Happy Birthday Song" from the Barney CD.  

Then later in the evening we went to a wedding at the SmogShoppe.  The SmogShoppe is an indoor/outdoor, eco-friendly, former smog check center with vintage furniture and recycled sustainable features.  My girlfriend, Espadrille, was getting married.  And her wedding was so personal and sweet.  They wrote their own vows, we took photos for their guest book,  had tacos from a stand and "wedding pie" for dessert. 

I also got to see another friend, Converse, whom I hadn't seen in a long time.  So it was fun catching up.  It was a challenge to work with my remix clothing to come up with a wedding outfit,  but after a few tries, I came up with something.

FLORAL DRESS - Forever 21 (similar)
DAISY STUD HEELED CLOGS - Forever 21 (exact)
GREEN NECKLACE - My Grandma's collection
BRACELET - OMG Vision and Accessories

Hopefully I learned from last week and this upcoming week will be a tad less busy.  I also learned something from my kids... that I should be enthusiastic about everyday activities like grocery shopping, gardening, cooking, etc.  That way I'll thoroughly enjoy myself and maybe afterwards I'll even have a nice long nap!

Sounds like quite the eventful weekend! I am really loving your second outfit. I'm all ready for spring now, but unfortunately the temperatures aren't really where I want them to be! But you managed to look ready for prong in that floral dress and I bet you didn't freeze your cute little behind off either!
