All in all it was a great dinner and everyone ate and played games, all in my new house!!! I'm like an actual grown up, having dinner parties and guests over. My husband and family were putting in floors hence their clothing. And Gideon really appreciated my poorly wrapped birthday presents, that are Little Mermaid wrapping paper. It was only a dollar, how could I pass that wrapping paper up?
It was a beautiful baptism, with many of my nieces and nephews able to sing for all the guests who came. After the baptism, my family had a nice dinner with all the foods that Brooke likes. The table setting was beautiful, and we had a hot chocolate bar (thank you Pinterest!!!). I was stuffed for hours after eating!! It was a wonderful weekend, baptism, birthday, and dinner. Thank you, mom, for making it all!!!

My tip of the day??? Show skin strategically! You don't want to be skimpy on top and bottom because it is just too much all at once. With this outfit, I'm showing a bit of leg (though it is covered up with a sheer fabric) and then am totally covered on top. Obviously, there are some instances to break this rule (like a rave?) but for the most part it is a pretty good rule. Same goes if you are showing some of your chest or back, make sure the rest of your outfit is a little more modest.
