Sunday Best {only not}

Happy Monday friends! It was a long, not too fun weekend in this neck of the woods due to a mad case of the upchucks (yes, I probably should've picked a nicer word, sorry). So we spent a lot of time hanging around the house trying to feel better and not spread any germs to the masses. It was little E who felt yucky, poor thing, and it's infinitely trickier to protect your carpets and couches when you have a 2 year old doing the throwing up. You become a human shield. 

So we didn't get to go to church on Sunday, a sad, sad thing. We really do love going and Sundays feel strange without it. But we did do a bit of painting that morning and Monty helped me get started on this bouquet of flowers that I picked up for a dollar, the perfect first attempt at a DIY paint by numbers piece. I saw the idea here at Pinterest originally and thought it was brilliant. An easy peasy way to create a quick work of art for your ever changing walls and really fun for the kids to help with too!

So my Sunday best was, in fact, casual but I did manage to accessorize with a fancy and delicious drink. :)
 How I love thee, let me count the ways ...
 Love this sexy grandpa cardi with it's studdly detailing. A cute way to "toughen" up a sweet look and, of course, what could be sweeter than heidi braids?
