A Birthday Full of Color



Hello, dear friends.  I hope that you are enjoying your weekend.  We've had a fairly relaxed one so far.  Yesterday, we got some errands done, tried a new restaurant, and went to see Last Christmas.  It was cute, but I recommend waiting until it comes on TV.  The Mister said that it will be a long time before I get to choose a movie again.  We'll see.

My third and final post on the wedding will be posted in a couple of weeks.  I'm waiting for the professional photos to be done so I can use them and take credit for them.

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I am a big fan of the Lilly Pulitzer brand as well as its founder.  I chose two dresses for the wedding festivities from Lilly.  My buddy, Skinny Delaney, did as well.  Note to self:  never choose a dress similar to anyone who is nicknamed Skinny anything. 




I have written about this creative lady named Lilly Pulitzer on my blog here, here, and here.  It is her birthday today.  If you would like to know more about this socialite trailblazer, you can read about her here.



How did I know that it was Lilly's birthday?
I used one of these for the past 10 years or so.



A lot of the Lilly dresses come in lots of different patterns and colors.
I just ordered this one for a winter get-away.





This is the dress/romper I chose for the Welcome Bonfire at the during the wedding weekend.

Just in case you're wondering, the above pic is not of me.
She's too fat.

Wowza!
For some reason, I don't think my legs would look the same in these.  They sure are cute, though.

Love these sneaks, and they are a reasonable price, too.

These jewelry holders make good stocking gifts.

I gave the ring holder to a friend's daughter, who recently became engaged.

I just ordered this for me for a friend.

This pad should have one more column that says not a chance.
I would have a lot on that list.

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  7. Adore her stuff...but since I spend the summers in the mountains ...it’s just not the right look. You and your skinny friend sure looked darling in your dresses.
