Super Special Weekend Update

Happy Monday everyone!

This past weekend was really special for my family. Our daughter Charlotte was baptized this past weekend.

Whats even more special about it is that she was baptized in the same church I was baptized and married in, as well as my parents and many other relatives. This church definitely holds a special place in my heart!

Also, she wore the same baptism dress that was worn by many in my family, starting in 1949. Pretty cool, right? Her baptism bonnet was my wedding day hanky that my mom made into a little bonnet. My oldest girl wore it for her baptism too! My hope is that when they each get married they use it as their wedding day hanky! (they can use it to dry away their happy tears in Vegas, the courthouse, a church..wherever!)

Anyway, Saturday was a special day all around! We were lucky to have most of our family there, and our dearest friends (wait a minute…what 31 year old uses the term “dearest” to describe friends? Only old people use it, right?) Let me rephrase that- one of our best friends were there to be Charlotte’s Godparents too…we are lucky people!!

Can you tell they are sisters? Charlotte on the left at 4 months, and Ella (now 4) on the right at 4 months. 

My aunt, who knows me all to well, got the cutest baptism card. As she said, “not the most religious but I couldn’t resist!” I am actually thinking of framing it!!

Sunday, we made the trek to meet my new baby cousin, Frank Edward. He is precious, has a head full of hair, and I just want to squeeze him to pieces.

Lastly, I headed to two…yes TWO different Targets to check out the new collection, Prabal Gurung. Let me say that all I wanted was this blazer….
 …..and both stores didn’t have it, or much of anything really. I was so bummed out! The blazer is sold out online and I am not anticipating it being restocked….guess it wasn’t meant to be….boooooooo!!!

Hope you all had a great weekend! I’m linking up today with Sami and Leeann for Weekend Update! Check them out!
