Floral Top, Blue Cut-Offs and Jokes

"Do your jokes again, baby!"
Bucket just started laughing this week.
It's always one of my favorite new things they learn.
Princess Sparkles was the first to hear it.
And now everytime she sees him she tells him to do his "jokes."

BLUE CUT-OFFS - Nordstrom Rack, $7
PINK LEATHER CUFF - Made by my mom
LEATHER HANDBAG - Cynthia Rowley (thrifted), $10
BLACK STUDDED HEELS - Forever 21 (thrifted and gifted)

Here's what I wore on Mother's Day.  I actually started out with bright green skinny jeans, but it got hot and I changed into these blue cut-offs I got from Nordstrom Rack for $7!  I paired it with some studded black heels my mom, Fair Isle, thrifted for me and this Cynthia Rowley bag I thrifted for myself for $10 (Happy Mother's Day to me!!!).  The floral shirt is from H&M.  I actually wanted the floral pants that every other blogger has been rockin' but they didn't have them so I settled for the shirt.  I have to admit, it matches with everything.

Bucket entertains his sisters with "jokes" and costumes

I celebrated Mother's Day early last week with a day of thrifting.  Pigtails and Princess Sparkles went to Disneyland with my cousin, Animal Print, and her girlfriend.  It was like the pre-kid days and Fair Isle and I went from Goodwill to Goodwill.  We didn't even stop to eat, because as much as I love to eat, I love shopping even more.  I got a pair of boots, that Cynthia Rowley bag, and a few pairs of shorts.  It brought true laughter to my day!

Did you really have a baby a couple of months ago. I need the secret diet for my future pregnancies. You look wonderful and what a great score with that purse.
