My Goodies and my New Tatz

A couple days ago, I visited a Stein Mart near my house with my mom because she had a birthday coupon and wanted to look around. Well, I ended up finding a lot of treasures! Unfortunately, my mom didn't find anything, but she was sweet enough to let me use her coupon. Thanks mom! :)

You may have to dig, but you can find some great things at Stein Mart for a much lower price than department stores. Wanna see my goodies?

First, I found these cute straw wedges. The bows are feminine and flirty and will look darling with a summer sundress.

What they look like on!

I also bought a pair of aviators made by Jessica Simpson. I have a pair of Ralph Lauren sunglasses, but I'm often afraid to wear them by the pool or to the beach because I want to keep them in pristine condition. These JS sunglasses are inexpensive and I don't feel bad about throwing them in my beach bag or purse.

And lastly, I found this little gem.. a straw crossbody bag! For some reason it reminds me of the tropics. It's a perfect summer bag, is roomy enough to fit all of my summer essentials, and it's hands free.

I was super excited about my finds!

So, how about a dose of laughter now? Remember how I told you guys that we always have themed birthday parties for members of my family? Well last week was my mom's birthday, and we ended up going with a gangster theme for her party (No, this was not my decision!). Anyways, it turned out to be pretty hilarious.

So... I got some new tatz. Please don't judge! :)

 I'm pretty sure this beats the mustaches from last year..

We played the song "In da Club" (50 cent), ate cake, opened presents, and had a blast. But I did feel just a little ridiculous! I don't think this is a very good look for me...

Notice the pearls in my ears

I don't think pearls look very good on a gangster... whoops! At the risk of some self-embarrassment, I hope this made you laugh!

How is everyone's weekend?

Thanks for reading!

Love, Cait
