a weekend report

I wasn't quite ready to say goodbye to my white dress for the season, so I gave it another go at church on Sunday. I think the "no white after Labor Day" rule shouldn't apply in states where it lingers near 100 degrees until Halloween. Am I right, or am I right?

This weekend was great fun. My sisters-in-law and I hosted a baby shower for Mike's youngest sister and I didn't take one picture of it. But trust me, it was really nice, and the food was plentiful and delicious. (Thank you, Abbie, for doing most of the work!) Baby Hazel can be born any day now, please. We are anxious to meet her.

Then Mike and I went to a little neighborhood get-together to celebrate the end of a very long, hot summer. (The end of summer is definitely a cause for celebration around here.) I love our neighbors. They are the best kind of people, and it was so fun to talk and laugh with them until nearly nine o'clock at night.

We are old. :)

What did you do this weekend?


  1. we picked weeds and had sushi. it was good. :) love that dress with that belt! and cute little stella legs peeking out. love you!

  2. We had a busy weekend. Saturday we went to Jack's tag football game and he was so great and proud because he made a touchdown. Then we went to Max's soccer game. That boy can run more and faster than all of the rest. We went out for dinner and ended not getting home until 9:30. Sunday was Grampy's birthday so I made chicken enchiladas and birthday cake in the morning. Picked up baloons and sparklers for his cake and met a client for advice on her kitchen in the afternoon. Matt and Katie and the kiddos and Lindy came over around 5:30 and we had a celebration. After they all left we were supposed to go to an open house but I gve out. Long day and I was tired. That was our weekend!

  3. amen to your NEW white after labor day rule. you must share the details of your belt.

  4. i say you wear it as much as you want it is gorgeous! If it is still above 80 I think it is still summer.

  5. The lady on what not to wear says that is not an actual rule and should not be followed, so you go girl! I just wanted to let you know I just hemmed my jeans using your tutorial and I am SO happy with them. They are now the perfect pair of jeans. I'm a shorty. I know we've never met, I'm a friend of Neal and Leslie's from BYU, but I read your blog regularly and I know we'd be great friends. ;)

  6. I see your little Shadow... what a sweetheart she is.
    The dress is charming, and perfect for Arizona through the Fall.

  7. Totally agree with you on the white after labor day, especially in states where seasons don't come as quickly as others :)

    And do tell about that adorable belt!! So cute!!!
