We Should Go To Vegas Baby

It's going to be a crazy couple of days getting ready for our big upcoming trip to Mexico.  

We had a busy, productive weekend full of laundry, cleaning, and organization.  

It started off with a bang at the Library Society's Annual Monte Carlo Night.  Each attendee received $20,000 of "monopoly money" to gamble at one of the many casino tables.  It was a night of drinking, eating, gambling, laughing, chatting, and prize winning.  We played Black Jack most of the evening and did pretty well.  I turned $20,000 into $139,000.  I think we need to take the crew to Vegas, but first, we have to find real money.  Gambling is so much easier and more fun with pretend money!

I decided to wear my 20 Year Reunion dress.  First of all, no one from my home town was there.  Second of all, the reunion is at a dive bar in Anderson, SC.  I may have to rethink my outfit if everyone is wearing jeans!  I didn't want to miss an opportunity to wear this gorgeous dress!



A note about my shoes....

I've been obsessing about the sold out Zara nude heel sandals for forever and a day.  I found similar ones by Stuart Weitzman and Manolo Blahnik and but they are $398 and $725 .  

Then I discovered the Steve Madden Stecy Sandals in nude patent.


These little lovelies are $80 and go with every single thing in my closet.  They are the perfect, affordable summer sandals.  

I'm usually a size 7 1/2 but am wearing an 8.  They run a wee bit small.  


p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because we're off to the pediatrician once again due to Baby Girl's nighttime cough.  More antibiotics and steroids for her.  Poor baby.

  11. I love those heels! Are they comfortable? Usually thin ankle straps make me nervous from a comfort standpoint. That dress is gorgeous and you look amazing in it! Poor baby I hope she feels better!
