I love my friend Sarah’s “Ordinary Days” posts on her blog. The past few weeks have been all crazy-like. But I think those are my “ordinary days.” I was able to take some time out of my hectic schedule to enjoy a lunch and tea and the cutest tea room!
Annie looks adorable in this hat. It was a complete splurge. We went to Aurora Farms Outlets a few weeks ago and she tried this on in the Coach store. Well, how could we not buy it when she looks so cute in it? I was always a hat girl….
Our lunch and tea was delightful! I had a wonderful English Breakfast Tea….yum. Annie was disappointed that her older sister who had just come home from college couldn’t join us, but she was earning money playing piano for another Mother’s Day Tea….
Speaking of going out, here I am at a “Black Tie Optional” affair. Colors were black, white and green. I ordered a green necklace from Twillypop to jazz up a black dress I had in the closet. I’m sticking my neck out to try to smooth out my turkey neck! The room was art deco and the event was a blast. It took place in the old Higbee Silver Grille – a restaurant in a downtown department store that we would visit at Christmas. We would get our hamburger in a special cardboard box shaped like an oven!
First, there’s the laundry. Then the stuff! That’s my daughter’s quilt on top of her pile! And below you’ll see it fresh out of the drier. I’m happy to report the kids’ blankets have held up well!
That Twillypop necklace looks just gorgeous on you. Green is definitely your color. And I can see where Annie gets her charm. What an adorable girl. I swear I was just in High School wasn’t I? I remember the little stoves at Higbees too. I used to get the little pot pies.
Annie looks like Nicole Kidman (before she went crazy with the plastic surgery.:) I love that hat! And love that necklace. Can’t wait to give Isaac his quilt in one week!
Annie looks so cute in the hat!
You look so pretty in your twillypop!
You are right, ordinary days are busy and filled with laughter and silliness, and special little moments that will pass us right by if we are not careful.
Thank you for reminding us!
I LOVE “ordinary days” 🙂 Love the hat!!! AND the necklace, I’ve been eyeing those. 😉 We seem to have similar taste!!!
