4 weeks in the making and

All I can say is I'm glad it's DONE!!! and I'm pretty happy with the result although it helps when you have such low expectations. Here is just a summary of my time and dollar expenses, don't judge me, she is my first girl and last child.


-Black and white dress $25.00


-Red polka-dot dress $12.00 at Ross


I literally spent about 15 hours online looking for a red dress and went out to at least 5 different stores to look for a plain red shiny dress.


-Photos $56.00 at the Picture People, I did have a 6 sheets for $18 coupon.

-$.50 in quarters for Auri to put in the gumball machines.



I'll be much happier about it in 25 years from now.

I LOVE the dresses she looks so cute! I hope I get one of these too! Her hair looks so cute too! :)

So gorgeous! I don't think it'll take you 25 years to be happy about it. Give it about 1 year. I am all about stuff like this, though--and I feel the same way about journals and scrapbooks and all that. The moments are going to PASS. If it takes $10 in quarters for the gumball machine to get a beautiful smile on a 2-year-old who will never be 2 again, so be it! Spending 4 weeks preparing for this sounds totally right to me! No judging here!! :)

Worth the wait! Love them. I have a beautiful red wool coat with fur trim I need to get to you for Auri!

At least after all the effort the pictures turned out gorgeous, or as Mia Michaels would tell you gor-gious! I love the close up of Auri.
