Monday Round Up: Bars, Brides + Blues Dresses

Happy Monday! Can you believe April is almost over? I feel like it just started and we are now in the last week of the month. Busy weekends like this make it go faster for sure. It was a beautiful weather weekend and we definitely took advantage of it.

Friday my friend texted inviting us out to a few distilleries around town. I was a little hesitant because we would have to bring Reese and I did not want to be that mom, but my friend assured me it was fine. It was also happy hour time not 10:00 PM so we took her out. We tried two places Du Nord and Lawless. Both were interesting places, I only had one cocktail at each. Du Nord had a nice big patio (that was full) but it seems like a fun place to go when it gets warmer. Downside is that you wait in line to order and the line is long and service is slow, nice, but slow. Lawless was a bit different. More eclectic and served in antique glasses. They had a few more unique cocktails on the menu, which I found appealing. It was incredibly dark in there, even for a bar so getting a picture was hard. It was a fun evening and Reese did really good. I am glad we can take her places and she is relatively well behaved. 










Saturday we had a wedding to attend. First of the wedding season that is upon us. I originally thought I would wear a dress in my closet but uh, my waist and rib cage are still pretty wide. The other weekend we were shopping and  Express had a huge sale. I found this pretty blue dress that I thought would be perfect. It was a bodycon but kind of bandage material. Figured with that and some spanx I could pull it off. It was one of D's cousins so we drove up north with the little miss. It was a productive day that a lot of D's family got to meet Reese for the first time. Between the ceremony and the reception we drove up to his grandmother's so she could meet her too, which was great. It was a beautiful reception and ceremony. Unfortunately we did have to leave early to get the little lady home.

Sunday was a more relaxed day. D had to watch his sister's kids for a couple of hours so Reese and I were home alone. Thankfully she took a nice long nap so I was able to do some stuff. I cleaned my make up brushes, waaaay overdue, and played with some new make up. When D came home we did some grocery shopping and ended the night on the couch trying to get into Fargo the TV show.

I was pretty proud of my wedding look. About two months post-partum and I have been working my tail off. This look is brought to you by Beachbody, Express and Spanx (ha). This dress was on major sale and thought it would be perfect for an April wedding. This time of year you never know what the weather will bring. This past Saturday actually was very nice, in the high 60s and sunny. Perfect day for a wedding. The openness in the front and sleeves were welcomed in this weather. I loved the bright blue color and felt like the combination of the color and cutouts were bold enough. So I paired with a nude heel and understated make up. I added a little Spring with my favorite earrings right now from BaubleBar and Target. It was super comfortable and I loved this! Now to find another occasion to wear it, ha!
