Happy Wednesday! Long time no talk, right? Life has been just busy, busy lately, but I'm so happy to be back here. During the long weekend we celebrated our niece's birthday, complete with a family fiesta celebration, and a party fit for a mini princess. On Saturday her folks threw a big 1st birthday party at Joe's Real BBQ, a Gilbert landmark that has some of the best BBQ in town. It's a really neat restaurant in an old brick building lining old downtown Gilbert, complete with a walk up window outside where you can order your food to-go (or eat it outside on their nice patio!). We had a great time at Joe's chowing down on some BBQ, baked potatoes as big as your head, and the best homemade root beer! Since it was Memorial Day Weekend, my outfit was also definitely a little more patriotic than usual! Tieka of Selective Potential sent me this darling dress and the minute I pulled it out of the sweet package she sent, I knew it would be a summer favorite. The pretty pleats and nautical feel are right up my alley, and the lace back gives it the perfect dainty touch! You're the best, Tiek!

Today I'm taking it easy after a minor procedure I had yesterday morning. They say anesthesia hits you harder the next day, and I'm definitely feeling it. Time for more coffee and blog reading all day long!

How was your long weekend?
