an outfit that is basically a mullet

11.06.2017


This weekend was a busy one! We went to a wedding on Friday for one of Jordan's cousins, and then on Saturday I took J with me to the wedding of a coworker. After being really nice most of the week, Friday was cold and overcast. At first I thought that was a huge bummer because it was an outdoor wedding at a barn, and I knew they weren't going to be able to get any awesome sunset shots or anything like that. But, the setting and the wedding colors and the grey sky are going to make for the most amazing photos. The wedding details were all so cute, and I'm obsessed with it. Jordan and I got married before Pinterest was really a thing (hi, I'm old), and weddings like this kind of make me wish I could do mine over again! So stinking cute.
Plus, hello man crush every day. I am trying to sort through J's clothes and see what we have in the next size up since baby sizes are so weird and he can randomly still fit into some 0-3 and some 6-9 and why can't all the stores just use the same sizing guidelines for the love of sewing. Anyway, I happened to find a green, button-down, collared onesie and a vest, and I basically couldn't handle the amount of hearts that exploded from my eyes. We did take a family shot also that was pretty good, but since I might end up using it for our Christmas card, I want to keep it under wraps for the time being. Suspense!
I have three loads of clean laundry to fold and could only find one pair of pants for J and they have a turtle on the butt, so his outfit is basically a mullet: business up front and part-ay in the back. R had a cute black dress on, but since it was kind of chilly outside she never took off her bright pink coat, so with her purple tights and pink shoes, she looked a bit like a character from Willy Wonka. 

On the somewhat literal bright side, since it was so gray outside and everyone was wearing blues and maroon, she was so easy to spot running around. That girl walked every.where. and Jordan and I took turns following her around while J fell sound asleep on the shoulder of one of Jordan's uncles. 
After skipping her nap on Friday (legit would not lay down or do quiet time of any sort), she ran and ran around the wedding until well after her bedtime. I was following behind her, when she suddenly took off sprinting across the field shouting something I couldn't quite understand. I caught up to her and made her stop and asked her where she was going. 
"I go home," she said. "I go home."
"Are you tired?" I asked her.
"Yes."
ABOUT TIME.

So we got Jordan and J (who had just woken up and gotten scared when he realized he was sleeping on a large stranger with a red beard and a bald head), said our goodbyes, and left. Because when the toddler tells you she's ready to go home and go to sleep, you do what she says.

  1. It sounds like such a fun weekend! The kids look adorable in their wedding clothes.

    Also can all stores follow the same size guidelines. It's not okay to be a size 2 in one store and an 8 at another!

    1. I know! It's so annoying to have sizing be so different! Totally agree.

  3. Gray skies for an outdoor wedding sounds absolutely gorgeous. There was an incoming thunderstorm at the end of our wedding and it made for such dramatic, beautiful photos.

    J in a collar shirt! Stop it! What are his shoes/booties? Do they stay in place? We have the Zutano ones that we love, but his are way cuter.

    (Also, I read these days, but finding time to comment is rare!)

    1. They are from an online shop called Potato Feet and I LOVE them. They are so warm and stay on really well. It's the only shoes he's been wearing since it got cold.

  4. I love R's coat!!! And J looks adorable in his collared shirt. Such fashionable kiddos! My clothing criteria for the kids is generally: If they can't nap in it comfortably I don't buy it, BUT I admit they do look super cute in more "formal" clothes.

  7. Kids clothes are as maddening as women’s jeans! Why is consistent sizing so difficult? I don’t understand.

    R’a coat is SO CUTE. Gracie and I had the exact same conversation at church yesterday. She wanted to leave and go to bed. James said we can’t let a toddler tell us what to do. But if it wasn’t church, I would’ve left too.

  8. The wedding looks beautiful. Ours was also pre-Pinterest and I sometimes feel the same way, but I figure that in 10 years everyone who had these cute weddings will be like, "Ew! I can't believe I had antique bicycles and chalkboard signs all over! That was so lame!"

  11. Both kids look fantastic!! R is the cutest little Willy Wonka character in that coat! Lol.
    That wedding setting is gorgeous, too! I love when weddings are somewhere that kids (and adults) and explore and run around!

  12. AMEN on the sizing. So annoying!

  13. oh J looks so adorable in his outfit!! so cute. i am so with you on the sizing - kids, adults, i don't care. it's so frustrating. like isn't that the point of the sizing system? why do we have something like that if stores interpret it any which way they want? you don't decide a centimetre or inch is longer/shorter than it is, same should go with clothes sizing. rage.

  14. Such cute favors! We got married before Pinterest too, but I always think of it as a blessing. Our wedding was a pretty simple affair at a church we loved (it wasn't even a pretty church). Lots of candles, but nothing super spectacular. I think if Pinterest had been around I might have gone a little crazy with trying to DIY a million things for the wedding, haha!

    You and J are SO cute! Love that picture! Tell me about his shoes. Where are they from?
    They are adorable!
