Good as Marigold

My sister in law had a blast snapping photos of me on during my graduation weekend.  It would be amazing to have her around more often so I didn't have to consistently put that pressure on my husband.  Either way, we were waiting for quite a long time to eat at Ellen's Southern Kitchen.  We wanted to check out this restaurant in West End because we'd had a friend recommend it to us and we heard they had chicken and waffles.  However, they did not have chicken and waffles, so we were pretty disappointed.  If it weren't for the amazing food we ended up ordering, that disappointment would have lingered.  Instead the only thing that lingered was the food in our bellies.  It was truly some of the best food I've ever had in Dallas.

My mom bought me this sweet dress in hopes that it would work for my brother's wedding, but I really wanted to stay true to the mustard color that my brother's fiance' was going for.  As you can see here, I was really happy with the dress I chose, but I was also really happy to get this cute trendy dress from my madre.  There's still something really sweet to me about having my mom treat me by buying me a new dress.  It was on sale of course because she's the one who taught me to be so frugal.  

It's going to be a busy next few weeks, so I'm really hoping I can get all of my priorities straight and stay focused.  Even though my students are on summer break, we are most definitely not, so I need to keep my head in it.  

Here's to super bright yellow dresses!
