First One to Take the Plunge

This has nothing to do with Lilly, but I wanted to take a moment and share a photo that makes my heart happy. A few weeks ago, the first one of my sorority sisters was married. Happily, all of us from our little group were able to make the trip to St. Louis for her wedding day. She had us all arrive early so we could have photos done by her photographer. This is the first photo that has made the cut and our little bride immediately sent it to us all. I love my sisters! Pi love and mine <3 
I'm on the far left- wearing J.Crew Factory dress and bubble necklace!

A Look at Easter 2012

As promised, here are some photos from Easter 2012! Ever since I was a little girl, I've enjoyed the yearly tradition of searching out the perfect Easter dress. For this Easter in particular, I knew it had to be Lilly, and it had to be very "Spring-y."  So, I found a dress that I had loved since Spring of 2011 when a very dear friend wore a dress in the same print for our college graduation. I bought the dress, it didn't quite fit, so my weight loss goal was to fit into it- and I did! I wore the Kiki in "Portrait of a Picnic"
My mama and I in front of my parent's house! I added my Sullivan belt in Natural and wore pink pumps. 

Love my little brother!

The whole family with my grandparents

And a photo of my beautiful friend Maggie wearing the dress in one of our senior photos at Mizzou! My ADPi little took senior pics for us at Mizzou's columns and we snapped a few together- ADPi and ZTA <3 

 Stay tuned for more posts documenting my time in 2012!

Remember Me?

It has been an incredibly long time since I posted. Between my move last summer, my new puppy, and my new teaching job (YAY!) I was swamped over the last year! Now that it's sweet summertime, I find myself with a blissful excess of time (Oh the joys of teaching!). After going through photos of the last year, I find that my Lilly was worn in many, MANY places. Rather than rush through one giant post with my Lilly, I will be documenting the different occasions in different posts over the next several weeks. have no fear, I will do my best to also include my current Lilly-wearing events as well! I'm going to start with the "oldest" event first- picking up right where I left off!

Just a quick look at the house and my puppy- the two things that started my blog decline due to all the attention they demanded!
Home Sweet Home! I'm now a proud homeowner of this sweet little place!
She was just a tiny thing of 5 weeks old here- love at first sight! 

My Darcy girl has been a huge blessing, I adore her! 

First things first: My teaching job!

I've mentioned several times before that I wore Lilly frequently when I was subbing in the school district I hoped to eventually find a full-time teaching job in. After subbing for a teacher for almost 4 weeks, I must have impressed the right people because I was asked to interview for a 7th grade Communication Arts position that would be open in the building the next school year. I was ecstatic! So in June, I went to interview for this dream job. Of course I had to find a way to fit Lilly into my interview outfit- the District Assistant Superintendent even commented on how cute my top was! I was incredibly blessed to find such an excellent job. My first year of teach was incredibly hard, but it was rewarding and I still can't see myself doing anything else. I'm looking forward to year two in the same school!
I wore my pink Rivia top (yay Lilly!) with New York & Company pencil skirt and blazer. Don't forget, every girl needs a pair of black pumps! I knew I needed to put my own twist on the traditional suit. If I was getting hired, I would get hired for ME and it worked out when I was called and offered the position the very next day!

After accepting the job the day after my interview, my roommate and I decided we needed to go out and celebrate my new big girl job! Of course I wore Lilly

I am excited to start up my blog again. Stay tuned for my next post in the next few days- I'll be posting Easter 2012 and much more!
