Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope you all had a great weekend! If you follow me on twitter I am sure you read about how our friends got married Friday night!! All day I was searching for something to wear. I had been to the mall several times looking but had found nothing. Well I did eventually find something and will share those pictures with you tomorrow. We had a blast that night and couldn’t be happier for Jon + Carrie. The rest of the weekend was spent hanging around the house organizing, cleaning and unpacking baby things. I got a lot done and am feeling a little more confident that things will be ready for when the baby arrives. I still have a butt load of things on my lists to do but slowly they are getting knocked off.
Anyways, right down the street from us are the Waterford Boat Locks. They are actually some of the largest ones thru the series of locks that go from Canada to NYC ( its part of the Erie Canal). Now that it is summer, its busy all day letting boats thru as they travel on their way to wherever they are going. I love going down there and watching the locks. Its so crazy to see the water getting sucked out and the boats dropping down like 30 feet to meet the water level on the other side. I love it!
I thought how fitting to wear my little sailor dress I found at the Goodwill down there last weekend. I love this dress although it is really hot. It’s a really heavy linen type fabric (not great for air flow) but it will be awesome for the fall. I hemmed it a lot after I got it from the goodwill to make it a little more modern looking. I always feel pretty excited when I realize I am wearing a fully thrifted outfit or pretty close to one. After I put this outfit on I realized my whole outfit cost me like $15 bucks (well minus my sunglasses). It makes me want to do a little dance or something!
