I just spent the last five-ish days home relaxing with my amazing family. I really couldn't have asked for a better time.Matt was busy slaving away in Salt Lake and so of course I headed out to Colorado for a much needed vacation after summer semester. My very favorite part of the trip was finding hidden treasures. Really though I can't even begin to tell you all of the treasures I found this weekend.
  • Treasure #1: I wanted to make a fun bubble skirt with a thick elastic waist. After some awe inspiring hours at JoAnne's I got all of the things I needed for my skirt and it all added up to just about $3 buckaroonies. It made my day. Take that Anthropologie.
  • Treasure #2: I went to my Grandma's to sew my bubbly bubble skirt and add some fun ties to a vintage shirt I found yet halfway through the project the sewing machine broke. This unfortunate event led  me and my Grandma to talking about how I loved her style and then she ushered me to the back room, pulled out a box and gave me some of her old clothes. I.was.in.heaven. I got some really cool stuff from my grandma (namely a fabulous red dress that I'm going to do a little fixer upper on). I'm sure there'll be a post on this and my bubbly bubble skirt later.
  • Treasure #3: My Grandma also gave me some of her Jewelry. It's all costume jewlry but for muah it was like finding a million dollars. Not only do I have jewlry from my Grandma that I will keep FOR-E-VER but also something that I will pass on and my little girls can have from their great grandma.
  • Treasure #4: After confessing my true love of thrift shopping to my sisters and mom we went on a thrift trip in Arvada. I found some real treasure here friends. A beautiful never worn pair of killer heels, a blue bubbly skirt, a fun sailor shirt and a vintage blouse. I'm sure you'll be seeing some of these items later.
Needless to say I really did have an amazing time in Colorado. I had a blast with my mom. We were hangin' out and having fun all over the place. Whether it was getting my nasty cracked in half retainer replaced or killing time before my sisters came we really did have a blast no matter what we were doing. Thanks for being such a great mom motha, and thanks for the great time sista's!

* I think I'm going to start doing a few fashion posts. I've been really inspired by other fashion blogs and want to join in on the fun! Let me know what you think of it!
