Did Someone Say Gingham?

Shirt- Old Navy, Vest- H&M, Belt- Forever 21 (came attached to a dress), Jeans- LC Lauren Conrad, Shoes- Target, Necklace- Tiffany & Co.

     AAAAH! I have so much to say and only one post to fit it in! I want to thank everyone for coming over and saying such sweet things about my little blog! Yesterday I had a record amount of traffic and today I woke up to my first blog award! I am just beyond overwhelmed by the positive response! So thank you guys!!

     In other words, I had to settle for photos in the kitchen because the boy came home late and I had promised a delicious dinner so... two birds, one stone... you get the idea. Don't get distracted by the little white fluff ball who is trying to steal the show, he wanted to show off his new groomed 'do! Also yesterday, Kendi mentioned that we should all wear our gingham goodness. Although mine isn't the J. Crew version, it is pretty spot on so I decided to go with the flow and join the party! 

     Lastly, the important stuff! I WON AN AWARD! The lovely Ramsey over at Love, Ramsey nominated me and I am prepping my acceptance speech as I type! In order to accept I need to follow these rules...
