True story:
When I was first pregnant with Ruby I dreamed I was having a little girl and we were going to name her Dot.  I woke up that morning thinking Dottie would be the cutest name ever for a little girl.  Obviously, we went with our first choice... but every now & then I think of that dream.  I wonder if it had anything to do with my obsession of prints & polka dots!?  I scored this top for cheap months & months ago.  It hung in my closet forever, but I just can't get enough of it lately!

linking up here on Sunday!

April 2nd wasAutism Awareness Day... and with a child diagnosed on the spectrum, I'm always happy & eager to help support & raise autism awareness.  I became aware of an event happening just outside of town, and they were looking for someone to donate their photography skills to document the evening.  I was more than happy to help out!

I brought along my family and we had a great time!  It was the first time it was organized locally and the event raised nearly $400 for the foundation.  I couldn't have been more proud to be part of such an important event!

To find out more about the Light It Up Blue visit the Autism Speaks website here.

My ModCloth Summer Wishlist

I adore ModCloth... and I visit the site daily to be sure I don't miss out on any good deals.  Even when I can't actually "shop"... I like to keep an eye on what's new and/or on sale.

Right now, I'm crushing on these fabulous pieces:

Swim Swam Swum One Piece
The color & cut of this one piece swimsuit is perfect.  The color reminds me of the ocean!

Stylish Idealist Dress
Orange is my favorite color, and the pattern is so cute!

Your Cheerful Heel in Cherry
I picture these paired with a cute pair of rolled up jeans and sweet flowy top.  Or just about anything else in my closet!

Welcome to Wander Romper
Case in point... wouldn't this romper look great with those red sandals!?

Fishing For Fun Hat
This cute visor sun hat is perfect, again for a day at the beach... or even just hanging out at the park with the kids!

With my 100 day spending ban coming to end soon... I'm really considering adding at least one these cute pieces to my closet!!

Now for the fun part!
Everyone loves a juicy surprise and ModCloth has put together one of the sweetest! Starting today at 9am PST you can get a $50 grab bag with every $150 purchase!
