Sundaes and Polka Dots...

This past Easter weekend was spent with our families. I'm so excited to become a part of Dominic's family.  We spent time with his sister on Saturday, where I got to give her a little box with wedding goodies in it, asking her to be my Maid of Honour. I was so nervous and excited.  My whole life I've wanted a sister, and now, in a few short months, I'll have one.  The idea of her standing there with me while I marry her brother is such an exciting thought! Thankfully, she was as excited as I was, and agreed to be my 'MOH.'

skirt (dress): Bernie Dexter
cardigan: local shop
bandana: modcloth
brooches: gift, vintage

 Sunday, we had Easter Dinner at Dominic's mother's.  My parents were also invited, so while all of our parents have met, it was nice to have some aunts and uncles and grandparents meet them as well.  The dinner went swimmingly, and everyone seemed to really like each other instantly. It's so comforting, to have our families blend so easily. 

I rarely talk about my personal life on my blog, focusing more on clothing, decor... but with the wedding coming up, it seems like a good time for me to blend more of my personal life in with my usual topics.  It's not that I don't want to share my life and feelings, I just tend to keep my personal life, personal, all the time.  I think, though, that with the wedding coming up, it seems right to let my readers in a bit more.

PS, I rarely wear my bangs up. I've always had bangs, what with having a high forehead. However, Dominic loves my hair up, and so I decided to try something new with the bandana. It took a while for me to get used to it, as I felt like my eyes were huge, similar to when I first cut my Bettie Page bangs, but throughout the day, I got used to them being up and quite like it! I think it'll be a fun option for the summer... especially with helmet hair!
