This Old Thing?...

Yesterday was glorious. It was our first full day back in AZ for the holidays, and do I need to tell you how much I love it here?
 Family, shopping, friends, citrus, Christmas parties, the ability to go outside without fear of slipping on ice or catching pneumonia, mmm, it just feels right

We have the most glorious flag, and I'll fight anyone who disagrees...
We woke up and started our Christmas shopping by hitting up the fantastic vintage sale put on my a number of fabulously talented ladies, two of which I am blog friends with,
These two ladies are even more beautiful in real life! 
If you can believe that. 
Plus, Angela called me "Unicorn Ashley" so I like her 
even more than I thought...
After which, I met a reader, who was the nicest lady, and funny too!

But, perhaps, the best part was this dress I found sold my Kayleen Reed. 
Which we will be wearing soon, 
so you'll see pictures of it later.

I tried quite a few on, but most were too big. When I got to the last dress I crossed my fingers and slipped it on. 
Man-Oh-Man! It fit like it was made custom for me. I was SO excited. As we made our way to the check-out Marcus found this killer tie, which we added to the tab and we left feeling very satisfied. Vintage seems to have that affect on people, I think.


I just put up and "About Me" page as requested by some readers.
Let me know what you think...

Pin It!

  4. I like your blog, Ashley. Especially that you tell me how to fix my hair in cute buns. I'm no good at fixing my own hair and it usually hangs down very boring like. Plus, I really like your buttons. :)
