Wanna Know What Makes Me Happy?

On this foggy, cloudy Tuesday, I am dreaming of Ella Grace in this...

Her Easter dress.
It makes me SO happy!


I had spotted a beautiful smocked pink dress in this adorable local boutique and decided not to buy it because it was a bit pricey. I looked online and could have gotten it cheaper, but by the time I paid shipping it would have been about the same. So, I went back to the boutique ready to splurge on the pink dress when I saw this magnificent blue creation that had not been there the week before! I think I may have gasped out loud when I saw it. It is SO precious! She tried on both dresses and I just couldn't pass up this blue. I mean she looked like a princess (plus it was not as expensive as the pink one and I really loved it so much more)!

I love the blue color and the white sash. It is SO Spring! I especially adore this lace trim that is peeking out from the hem line. To die for!!!



And, look at the back. It may just be the best part. Of course she will have to wear a big white bow in her hair and I'll tie this bow in the back better. We'll get some lace socks and beautiful shoes.


I LOVE Spring and I LOVE planning my children's Easter outfits. I must have pulled this dress out three times just to look at in the last three days. Hurry up Spring. I'm SO ready!

Beautiful dress! I just LOVE Easter--always have! I always liked choosing an Easter dress as a little girl (and even a big girl--my Mom was always so sweet to let us go get a new dress even when we were in college, etc.!)...now I love dressing the kids for the special day!

EG is going to be so pretty in that--can't wait to see pictures!

That is SO sweet! I bet that blue is going to look so pretty on her, too. I LOVE IT!

How pretty!! My sweet girl turns 11today and although we spent the day shopping for dresses on Saturday, the selection is not near as dainty as when she was that size. Of course, Strausburg still has her size, but I don't think I could dare get her in one of those anymore!! I just sold a couple from last year in DDG, and she snarled her nose when I got it out of the closet!! lol. Why do they have to grow up?

Your little princess will look beautiful. Don't forget to post pictures as I'm sure you will. Have a great day Leigh Ann!

That is the most-darling-dress-in-the-world! There is something SO Special about little girls in their Easter finery that the Lord Himself must just smile to see how beautiful His creations are!!

She is going to be darling in that dress! I hope you have the camera batteries charging up this very minute to be ready! We want lots of pictures!
