My First Maxi Dress


I am so out of steam this week.
I had a blast with the 2 giveaways over at Covered In Grace and The Life Of The Wife.
And I got to meet so many new people these past few weeks.
Hello to all my new followers. If I havent replied to or visited you yet, I promise you...
I will get there. I so appreciate everyone of you saying hello.
I'm completely burnt out right now.
You should know I have 3 kids of my own, plus I babysit 2 extras four days a week.
And my husband works from home, so we have a full house right now,
with it being summer and all.
But my heart wants to connect with every one of you...
If you are new to my blog, I am slightly sarcastic and make alot of jokes...
(usually at my own expense)
I usually get a lot of laughs.
But deep inside of me, my heart wants to reach out & be there for people, 
to let you know how much you are loved, how you can make it through what 
you are going through, how you have so much BEAUTIFUL inside of you...
and this all comes from alot of my own experiences,
If you look through my blog posts, you will find a lot of both...
Humor and Encouragement.
Please know, I am always here to talk to anyone if you need a friend,
or someone to pray with you. I mean that.
And also: you should know, the hair. (meaning mine) It's not real. It's a wig.
Bahahahaha!! I kid, I kid! However, I've mentioned this little fun fact about 
me before, but just in case you didnt know...
I've been getting grey hair since I was about 20 (36 now)...
So if that's not sexy, I dont know what is... ;)
But 5 years ago my hairstylist told me I was 65% grey, so maybe today 
I am like 90%...who knows? 
I dye my roots every 2 weeks, so I cant even tell. 
(and I am actually chopping my hair today, most likely not much but we'll see)
There: Now don't you feel like you know me better???
If you want to watch the VLOG where I talk about my grey hair, click HERE!

Yesterday, I guest posted HERE and talked about something CLOSE to my heart.
Please, if you have a minute, go check it out.

Today, I'm keeping it simple.
I got my first Maxi Dress. My hubby bought it for me for Fathers Day.
Does that make any sense? Maybe he wanted me to look hott for his special day??
Hahaha!! 
Anyways, I love it. I am only 5'3 so I have been having a hard time finding one
that fit me without having to tailor it. This one will do.
It's so comfy.

Tell me what you think??

i love it! i'm obsessed with maxi dresses, and i'm a shorty too! (5'0" to be exact!) so i know the feeling of the "non fitting maxi". forever 21 has a great selection that fit me well in case you're in the market for more! xo!

Holly Knitlightly said...

Ooh that looks like SUCH a comfy dress! & so pretty! I love that your husband bought YOU something for Father's day! Haha!

I love sarcastic people! I can be SUPER sarcastic but it's so hard to do it online because some people just don't know you're being sarcastic, ha!

Lucy McCracken said...

I love it! I'm 5ft even so I know exactly what you men, because of this I own 0 maxi dresses. You look beautiful in yours. your hubby has good taste. I can't wait to see your new haircut as well. :) Hope you're having a wonderful day!

Maria said...

i just watched your video on grey hair and you had me CRACKING UP! you are too cute. *and i love your top and your one earring ;)
i was dying that you said upgrading for you is going from Suave to Herbal Essences! LOL bc, i'm known for going to the store and stocking up when they put out their giant containers of Suave shampoo and conditioners for 77 cents! yea, baby!!

thanks for making me smile!
have a wonderful day. <3

Hot Snot!

Kelly said...

You JUST gave me HOPE that I can find a Maxi dress to fit me too! I'm 5'3 too and thought perhaps it was impossible!!! Girl you are SUCH a kindred spirit!!!! I have so many things to say that perhaps i'm not comfortable telling on my blog but perhaps one day I will and it will be due to encouragement from people like you.

Breanna Hohenstein said...

I love it :) So boho and cute!

Makaila said...

Gorg girl!

Dana @five30three said...

Stunning as always. I'm 5'4" and tried to find one before a vacation we took in May, but failed miserably. I thought I scored at Target only to come home and realize I accidentally bought a maternity maxi. That'll teach me not to buy stuff without trying it on.

Love love love the dress. May need to come over and steal it one day when you're too busy with all the kiddos to notice an intruder. Muaahahahah.

Allyson Butler said...

Love the maxi dress. I have two and would wear them every day...if I wanted to do laundry every day...

Alyson @Eisley Rae said...

You are so funny. Love the wig. ;) haha!!! I'm so anxious to get to know you, especially since one day we'll kinda be neighbors. Btw, do you live on the East or West side? Your dress is gorgeous. How sweet of your hubby. You look beautiful. Off to watch the vlog about your grey hair!

That is CUTE!!!

Charlotte Rigby said...

Oooh what a gorgeous gift!! And it looks great on you, I'm short as well, and didn't know if I could get away with wearing a maxi dress, but I love them, and now I know I hopefully can if I can find one that's not too long!

Helen said...

Looking good Lady! Do you know I completely love you!?
