Wrapper's Delight (outfit #52)

Today is my darling son's 7th birthday!  He is one of the most kind-hearted, handsome, and lovable children I've ever met, and I'm so proud that he's mine.  My husband and I taped streamers over the entrance to his room so that he would have to break out on his birthday morning.  I found him sitting in the sandbox this morning, and I asked him how he liked the doorway.  "It was really nice mom, but I'm sorry that I accidentally broke the bottom when I was trying to crawl out."  I explained that breaking through it was sort of the point and his face lit up.   We went inside and he ran through the streamers and yelled, "yay, seven!"  I made some chocolate mint cupcakes and we plan on taking the kiddos to the drive-in tonight (one of only 2 drive-ins left in Colorado!)  Next weekend we are having a big shin-dig to celebrate three of our children's birthdays, since they are all grouped together in May and June.  I only wish that he would have agreed to pose with me, but he's feeling self-conscious that he just lost a tooth.  Happy birthday, sweet Emery, we're so lucky to have you in our lives!
   Outfit details: 1950s wrap blouse, pencil skirt with beaded pocket detailing, and 1940s rhinestone "victory" brooch which is holding my top closed to ensure my modesty ;) are all from ebay.  My bakelite earrings are from an Antique store in Florence, CO

  2. Lovely outfit. I like the green earrings against your red hair.
    Lovely thoughts about your children. I liked to read that.

  3. Emery is so sweet. :) he didn't want to break your streamer art. I can't believe he is 7!!! :) hope you had fun at the Drive in!

  4. Happiest birthday wishes to your darling little man!

    Love this vibrant, summery ensemble, as well the fun title (I totally cracked a big smile over it) that you gave post.
