Big Girls Cry Too..


Vintage dress Ebay shhh..I will never tell the secret price for this keeper
Naughty Monkey shoes (love the name of these shoes..lol): $2.00 from Salvation Army
Crinoline: $15.00 from Ebay






Hello everyone! Did you miss me? I was MIA for a week. I have been stuck in a rut..so I wasn't feeling it last week. Blogging is supposed to be a fun thing..not something that you feel that you have to do, so I felt like I needed a week away. I got this sweet handmade 50's dress from Ebay about a month ago now, and I finally decided that it was time to show it off. I am not sure that I have loved another 50's pink dress more then I love this one...so I paid the extra cost for it.. because it is a keeper. I finally got to do my daughter's 5th birthday pictures, and her birthday was April 1st. The weather never cooperates on her "birthday", so I usually have to wait to take her birthday pictures. My daughter is not an "easy" model to work with at all, and it is usually like pulling teeth to get her to even take a picture. So, here are some of Emily's pictures!












Aww..she looks so sweet and cute right?...

Wait for it...


It's my party and I can cry if I want to..


I am not sure if she was turning 5..or 50...lol! 5 year old's can throw some fits!

Today I am linking up with:

  6. HAHAHAHAHAHA those pictures are incredible!!! I especially love that last one. Oh my gosh those are going to be so great when she gets older- my mom still loves to show me home videos of my 5 year old (and older, lol) self throwing tantrums. We did miss you, by the way :)
