SUPER FUN AND COLORFUL STRIPED MAXI DRESS

 Say YES to this Dress!
Happy Monday Friends! I hope all of you had an amazing and relaxing weekend. It was a fun and busy for this gal. Just to give you a brief overview,  we had some friends over for dinner on Friday night, and yes I cooked and it was delicious! All the plates were clean, that's a good sign, right?  On Saturday my girls Kimberly, Aleesha, Morgan and I  did some hard core community service at our local Desert Mission Food Bank. And finally Sunday there is always church, which I love, and spending lots of quality time with my hubby and baby Logan, which by the way we re-named him Babezilla!  Wow  Logan has always been the perfect baby, happy, playful and calm, but as soon as he turned 19 months, it all went downhill, from sugar to you know what! HELP!

 Ok, ok, I know what you guys are thinking, what about that amazing dress? Back on track, no worries.  After our community service on Saturday,  my friend Kimberly dropped me off at home. I'm not kidding it was around 110 degrees outside and all I wanted to do was to go home, take a nice shower and drink a smoothie! It was brutal!

So all of you guys know me  well,  I have lots of mommy moments. Kimberly dropped me off and , OH NO, I don't have my house keys on me and my hubby was far away taking Logan to a play date. So my amazing friend Kimberly picked me up and we went shopping!

Next thing we are in the parking lot walking to the store when my husband calls, I'm on my way home. Bummer, I really wanted to look for some fun colorful clothes. So Kimberly and I rushed to the store, we had 10 minutes! Kimberly starts finding gorgeous outfits, and here I am not finding anything cute and saying, next, next, next! When we were getting ready to pay, I spotted this colorful something from far away, told Kimberly to stay in line and OOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHH Heavens, I need to try this baby on! This is exactly what I've been looking for!!!!
 I tried this dress and fell in love with it right away. It's a little loose but who cares the price was right. Are you ready to hear how much I paid for my super fun and colorful stripes Maxi dress....................................................... $9.99! 

I am a mommy of a very active toddler and I find myself craving for something chic, comfortable, elegant and fun, this dress has it ALL!!!!  Oh goodness this was a really good find for me. Kimberly bought one too and it looks gorgeous on her too.  

Dress: Andrea Missy (Ross) // Belt: Calvin Klein (Anthem Outlets, PHX, AZ)

Earrings: Macy's  //  Necklace: I love beading and I made it myself!  I make one of a kind and either keep them or sell them. ( Black Onyx with cupid zirconia and crystals)

Ok I had to break the rules and be a little goofy for a minute. Cant stand that serious face!

This heat was getting to me! We were taking pictures at 2 pm and it was 107 degrees outside. But of course my photographer thought this will be a good shot. Thanks Kimberly!  It is exhausting the role of a wanna be a  model, lol! 

Shoes: De Blossom Collections (Xi Company)  This shoes are super light and comfortable. Most important, it supports your ankle. Great for a mommy who forgot how to walk in heels! I can wear them all day!




Glasses: Ray-Ban (Sunglass Hut) 









Oops, loosing my balance again, another mommy moment for me! Thank you 








One thing that I absolutely love about these dresses is that they are so comfortable and versatile. You can wear them at the park, beach, grocery shopping, family reunion, date night, there are so many possibilities. Just be sure to wear fun accessories and a belt! You know how I feel about belts!!!!!


Here are some pictures of us girls goofing around and enjoying serving our community together!

"A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out." 

Friends that do service together increase the love and trust they have for one another. There is something about this experience that helps me realize how important it is to extend a hand to those you love in times of need. I admire and respect these girls, they are an example to me, and I look forward finding different ways to serve together.

 So get your friends together, find what are the real needs of your community and find time to give a little love to those that less fortunate. Count your many blessings, increase your love for those in need, serve .............................. you might be answering someone prayers!





Mosiah 2:17 
And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn awisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the bservice of your cfellowbeings ye are only in the service of your God.
