Tiptoe through the tulips

Friday I love you!  Chris is off to Seattle this weekend so I will have a few days to myself:)  I plan on cleaning, get crafty, eating some Thai food (as Chris is not a huge fan) and blasting Die Antwoord (he can't stand them either).  My Mom is home and recovering nicely, thanks so much for all your sweet genuine well wishes, I love you all more than Friday!  In celebration of spring and that the sun  popped out yesterday I wore a dress covered in tulips!
Peetee says HI to all his bitches!!!

I picked up the dress on etsy a while ago for a ten spot, and the sweater was from Goodwill and was all of $3.
 My smile is free:) and same with this crazy look.

I hope it's sunny where you are and if not I hope the sky looks like this!
I think it only fitting that I throw a shout out to all the wonderful women in my life today as it is International Women's Day!  It took me a long time to realize how important it is to have a strong circle of women in my life but girl do we need each other!  It is women like you and Nusreta Sivac that inspire me to be the best me I can.

 I think in celebration of myself I'm only working a half day!  Have a great weekend ladies!

It's Friday and the International Women's day and on this day more than ever I feel sad to have you miles away while I'd love to listen to Die Antwoord and eating Thai food with you!!! But I don't want to upset you, because your smile in these photos is radiant and contagious and I'm glad to see you and Peetee, it just come out from my heart and I won't delete it!!
I love the dress and the braids, I should copy this look, you are always an inspiration!!
Always lots of love xxxxxx

That rainbow sky is amazing and celebrates the healing for your mom.
What a cute cute tulip dress. Tulips always say spring to me, especially on a flippy swirly dress.
Have a wonderful time with yourself this weekend!
