Hello everyone! I hope that all of the mommas out there had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!! We had a great weekend. Saturday was spent getting our family portraits done, in vintage style of course. After photos, we went to my mother-in-law's house to celebrate Mother's Day with her. Pj made her favorite dish, shrimp creole, which is what his dad made for her each time she came home from the hospital after giving birth.
On Mother's Day, I had breakfast and mimosas in bed while I watched Mad Men. The kids let me sleep in till almost 9:00, which was such a rare treat! We had dinner at my mom's house followed by playing at a local park until dark.
Anyway, I wanted to show you some of our vintage family portraits! My sister's friend, Roxanne is an amazing photographer and I've been dying to get some photos done my her for years. She did a fantastic job getting my kids to smile and look at the camera, even though all they wanted to do was run off and play.

I wore my Paris Market Dress that I made last year for Easter. To tie in the colors from the kids outfits, I accessorized with Bakelite jewelry and a green bolero. I used a pair of over sized Bakelite earrings as dress clips to keep my bolero in place. See more on The Paris Market Dress and where to buy the fabric here
Pj doesn't dig on vintage so he put together a modern, vintage-style outfit with his own rugged twist, He wore a button-up shirt with rolled up sleeves, his favorite vest, grey corduroy pants and one of his trademark hats
Olivia wore her green vintage dress from Brenda Sue's. I love the embroidered yoke, peter pan collar and little rhinestone buckle. I did make a green hair ribbon to match but she fell asleep in the car on the way to the park and it slipped out!
Rhys wore a vintage yellow seersucker romper that I picked up from my local antique mall last month. He looked a little naked in just the romper so Pj had the idea to put a little striped onesie on underneath.
