Spring Break is OVER

My little break is officially over. I had a minor health issue that thankfully seems to be all cleared up now! I know some of you are dying to know the nitty gritty but I'll spare you the details and just say I had a very large ovarian cyst removed and now I'm feeling awesome. So, back to the fun. 


I hope you all had a fabulous Easter. We shared ours with some of our dearest friends. It was wonderful. I bought this adorable vintage yellow dress on Etsy and Calder wore a vintage romper I found at the thrift store. I love it a lot and honestly, so does he.
I'm still going strong on the nothing new challenge. I recently used a Walmart.com gift card to buy printer paper and an Easter gift for Calder. Printer paper was a bit of a gray area but since I had the card I thought it would be a good thing to use it on.

Clothing has been a bit of a challenge lately. I have the opportunity to go to some great dinners and special occasions and I'm struggling with what to wear. In the past I would use these opportunities to buy something new but obviously that won't work. I am going to try to make a cute dress for my sister's wedding in June but I have some more business attire functions coming up soon that have me stumped. I think I can use things I have but they don't seems special enough because they've been sitting in my closet. I guess consumerism still has a hold on me.

Welcome back!

You are welcome to borrow anything of mine, but I can't say I have a ton of options and probably nothing that is any better than what you have. I have a wrap dress that is navy and sounds like it would be fitting...if you want to mix things up. Way to go with nothing new! I'm so amazed by your determination! Wish I were a better "teammate".
