graduation Thursday

Today was a busy day! My day started off at school with kindergarten graduation. The kiddo’s did an amazing job sharing what they’ve learned about the 7 Habits (we’re a Leader In Me school and trying our best to implement the program into every facet of the school). I’m going to miss this group as they move on to first grade, we’ve had a fun year. I did pick up a cute new dress, that I’d love to have in every pattern they make. You can find the dress here and the shoes here.

After our graduation was over, I headed to BK’s school to see her end of the year program. She and I should probably have a real talk about how to stand on stage and not pull up her dress the whole time. That comes with age, right? Right?


At least she gave everyone a good laugh. Three is such a fun and unpredictable age, and when I say that I mean, she’ll always be having fun, we just don’t always know how she’ll be doing it. I was just incredibly thankful that I laid a pair of shorts out for her to wear under the dress.


This year has flown by, but I’m positive we made a great choice by enrolling her for two days a week. She’s had a great time making new friends and really fallen in love with her teachers. She actually keeps telling us that this isn’t her last day. We have really seen her blossom over the past year and I adore that spunky little personality that always manages to find herself front and center. IMG_6983

Here’s a little look at how much she’s grown.

first last day
We had Cheesecake Factory for lunch, it’s my favorite and I ordered my go-to dish, White Bean Chicken Chili. I have a half-piece of White Chocolate Macadamia Nut and Caramel Cheesecake waiting in my fridge, I didn’t want to indulge until after I went shopping for a new swim suit. It didn’t help, by the way.

I also bought my Mother’s Day gifts. Well, I asked for a little retail therapy for Mother’s Day, so I actually spent that money on a few things. Like Chaco’s for our upcoming Disney trip and a new swim suit. I have plenty of one-piece choices from over the years and I’m basically my pre-pregnancy size. The problem is, I need something that I can chase a toddler in and not worry about making adjustments or giving anyone more than they bargained for, I think this sea foam crochet one-piece is the perfect option. Also, it is super flattering, I couldn’t pass it up.

I’ve had the best day with my sweet family, now I’m off to eat that cheesecake. :)

  1. OMG BK is just too cute. I love the pic of her w/ her dress up. Smart mommy for putting her in shorts! Good call or those would be some pics you would not want to see when she grows up! Haha!!

    Love Cheesecake Factory so much.

    Love the dress – it looks so nice on you. I am putting myself on a shopping freeze at the moment. I really don’t need to buy anything except maybe something to wear to a wedding in CA!!!

  2. Love me some Chacos! I have the same double strap (with toe loop!) in green- since 2007! They LAST, are super supportive, and so comfy. Wear them for a while before your trip to get the adjustments right and to avoid any blisters that can come with shoes with oddly placed straps- just my tip. :) Your daughter looks so cute too! Congrats on finishing the year.

  3. Belle’s school does Leader in Me, too. I love it! I can’t believe how much your sweet girl has grown this year. She’s so pretty! I might have to be your bathing suit twin. It’s so hard to find a cute and flattering one piece.

  4. What an incredibly cute outfit she is wearing. She clearly gets it from her momma! I love your dress. The pattern and colors used are lovely.
