Red Dresses and A "Big" Surprise

Princess Sparkles loves to drink out of my cups.
If I leave water on a table I often find an empty glass in it's place.
I always tell Sparkles to ask me first, it's polite.
Tonight I was in the kitchen when I heard this hacking and spitting.
Then Princess Sparkles ran in with a horrified look on her face.
She drank from a glass on the table, but it wasn't water but an "adult beverage" Camo was consuming.
Maybe next time she'll remember to ask...

Princess Sparkles (and Mommy) in Red
RED DRESS - Motherhood Maternity
BLACK SWEATER - Express
FAUX LEATHER/FUR VEST - Target
BOOTIES - Forever 21
Here is the outfits Princess Sparkles and I wore to church this past month.  Sparkles wore her "Santa" dress and I decided I would layer up the red dress I wear every holiday that I've been pregnant (which has been now quite a few!).  The Target vest I bought a few years ago because I liked it's 70's look.  Now it's so in!!!

I've really enjoyed the restful holiday.  It's been a nice break having my sister, Polka Dots, and Camo around to help out with the girls.  Normally I enjoy returning to our "routine" but with a new baby on the way (6 weeks to go!) I can only expect the unexpected...like finding beer in a glass you think is water!

As for the baby, remember, February 6th is a VERY cool birthday ;-)

Poor Princess Sparkles! Kayla did that one time when she was about 6 or 7. Both of you look adorable in your red dresses :)

The Suburb Experiment said...

Haha my daughter's done the same thing. Now she gives those drinks a wide berth while muttering to herself "Daddy's drinks". It's funny.

6 weeks!!!

Princess Sparkles is a cute in her Christmas dress. It sounds like she learned a lesson!

You look adorable as always. Hope that was a lesson for Pigtails. AB can be dangerous on lower surfaces! We've all done it and learn as we go.
I'm so glad you are doing well and wow only 6 weeks left. Seems like only a few weeks ago you said you had a secret!
Take care, and if you have time stop by for my Trending Christmas Style link up. Tomorrow is the last day

Silly Princess Sparkles- that's one way to deter her from drinking early (I remember my first gladd of wine and I thought how disgusting it was!) I love your red dress- Happy New Year!

Kassi said...

Poor Sparkles - but you're right I am sure she will ask next time. :) You both look fabulous. You look fantastic in red and love your booties. Happy New Year to you and your (growing) family! :)

Hilarious that she drank out of your cup! The nasty taste of beer probably taught her to ask before she drinks next time, though. Haha. It shocks you when you don't expect it. :)
I love the dress that you are wearing. Red is festive, but it is also super flattering on you.

Happy New Year! :)

I know I shouldn't laugh, because that poor girl couldn't have been happy with the surprise, but it's kind of funny to imagine her face :)

I love you and your little mini-me in your matching dresses!
