Friday's Fancies

3/09/2012

Oh hello sweet Friday! Don't we all wish we were packing for spring break right now? Rather than stuffing my bikini, sandals and cute little maxi dresses in my suitcase for a trip to Cancun, I am packing diapers, tiny toys and a bag of cheerios for a trip to the playground with Mila Moo. Not too bad of a trade I say. ;) Although frankly I wish I could pack a margarita.

If I were going to spring break, I would include a lot of color in my outfit choices and accent with just a touch of gold. What's in your suitcase darlings?

P.S. Don't forget to enter our giveaway here!
P.P.S. Kirby is in Hawaii (major jealousy) but in any case this will be our only post for the day, since even a blogger needs a break! In the meantime, check out her post on Pinhole Press for a super cute album idea for the special someone in your life!
See you all here on Monday.

So you can't bring a marg in a non-suspecting container? I'd so attempt that which is why I'm currently not a parent ;)

Love that yellow dress and those shorts. Have a wonderful weekend!
