A little sparkle

A little sparkle

Today, I’m just writing to let you know that there won’t be regular blog post next week. I’ll be busy travelling around the Caribbean Island. And I’ll be back with (hopefully) a lot of breathtaking photos, useful information and places I can introduce to all of you. I don’t know if I’ll have time to post any blog posts during this intensive and exciting Caribbean travel time or not ( But I’m certainly going to try though!) , but I wanted to make sure you all know what’s going on at least.  If you want to see where I’m going and want to get “live updates”, make sure to follow me either on Facebook or Instagram. I”ll try to publish photos daily there. Anyway, Phil ( my hubby) took the day off work yesterday and woke up with the kids and took them out while I slept a little bit longer. He came home with cookies and flowers! You know it’s going to be a good day when you start a morning off with a little extra sleep and cookies. Last Monday we celebrated my early birthday ( since I’m going to be in the Caribbean) I’m excited to be turning 33!! 33 just sounds really nice although I admit  I’m getting a little too old. But I also feel like you can dish out a little bit of advice with that number backing you. Sounds a little more legit. πŸ™‚

 I have a lot of thoughts on getting older and sometimes I’m not sure I’m up for all this growing up and growing old stuff, but 33 is a good year and I can’t wait to see what this next year has in store! Hopefully a faster metabolism?! A girl can dream. 

Anyhoo, I’m in love with my birthday dress. This dress is FABULOUS and photographs really beautifully. The combination of the stretchy fabric and the sequins is very forgiving of the less than perfect figure. This dress does not wrinkle, so it will travel well. I probably got the most compliments on the gorgeous color, which varies depending on the lighting. This dress is so “va-va-voom” on its own that it does not require much accessorizing. This was a delight to wear and exactly what I was looking for! Thank you so much Dillard’s! I LOVE this place! It’s one of my most favorite places to shop–whether it’s for me, or while shopping for gifts for nearly everyone in my life, Dillard’s  delivers heartfelt charm and great prices. People always ask me where I buy my gifts, dresses, and beautiful jewelry; and I always tell them, “Have you been to Dillard’s?!”

If you haven’t visited the store–GO! You won’t regret it!!!
