Tribal Print Blazer and a Birthday!

"Cool!  Aw-sum!"
That's what Pigtails says when she likes things.  
Pigtails turned 2 on Tuesday and she was thrilled.
She liked her cake, the attention, having family and friends around.
But what she really thought was "cool, aw-sum" were the gifts.
Everytime she'd unwrap one, it needed to be opened immediately for play.
In fact, we had to force her to open the next one.
Then that one had to be opened immediately.
Pigtails isn't used to being the center of attention, and she appreciated it!

TRIBAL PRINT JACKET - Forever 21, $10
CUFF - Heavenly Treasures
NECKLACE - Cynde Daniels
WEDGES - Bamboo (Thrifted)
Here's another tribal print, this time it's a jacket from Forever 21 I took a chance on and ordered online during a BOGO sale.  I'm so glad I did, because I love it.  The wedges are another thrifted GW find, they were new and just too cute to pass up.  I seriously buy a new pair of shoes every week.  But for less than $10, how can I not?!  While I was snapping a photo of my shoes, Pigtails decided her shoes needed to have their close-up as well :) 

Pigtails waits for her 3 friends to arrive for her birthday party.

I know I've said it before, but I'm obsessed with tribal prints.  I can't help it.  They're just so fun!  I'll tell you what else I'm obsessed with, my maternity jeans.  Who would've known that the stretchy stuff that holds them over a pregnant belly would be great for holding in a post-natal flabby one!!!  How "cool, aw-sum" is that?!!!

Happy belated birthday Pigtails! Aw middle children. They are so funny about attention. I took my middle child to the eye doctor today and it was like the best experience because he is not used to having attention either. You two both look so lovely!

I like your ethnic outfit, the print is fabulous, black and white is perfect! And Pigtails is super cute especially with her pink crocs, I like the close up of her shoes. GIRLS ARE JUST SO DIFFERENT. My boys would never care. They always say, just don't post their pictures on my blog. Happy birthday Pigtails!
