Strawberry Shortcake Redux

So, as you know last week I felt near death awful.

So, on Thursday I had plans to have a few of my sweet friends over for tea.
And though my week had been bleh to say the least, I NEEDED girl time.
I know it's greedy, but I get energy from being around loved ones.

remember this guy??

I feel like some super villain, 
sucking out warm fuzzy feelings 
from family and friends wherever I go!

*Ok, moving on*
So, Thursday morning I woke up...and literally bounced out of bed, 
which wasn't a good idea since my neck was still bruised,
 but after feeling like a lemon for weeks I FINALLY felt somewhat normal!

I opened the kids door and hollered
 "Good Moooooorning!! French Toast all around!"

Then I made these:
Banana Nut Mini Loafs

And of COURSE since I'd been living in jammies for so long,
 I needed a little bit of my normalcy.

So naturally I put on this:

annnnnd, maybe took a few pics out in my kids fort studio...

Dress: Thrift Store|$3
Tights: Wal-Mart|$1
Belt: Thrift Store|$2
Booties:Clothing Exchange|FREE

That's right, $6 for the whole ensemble!

I feel comfortable in my own style, however as I was running errands with the kids in this outfit, I did wonder if people might mistake me for this gal:


If they did, at least they didn't vocalize it. ;0)
