A thrifty Easter

I keep going back and forth about what to write concerning our Easter weekend. So much happened and and I woke up on Monday morning feeling like I got hit by a semi truck the night before. My sweet husband even let me sleep in and I still felt like a hot mess when I woke up. To make it short, Justin's sister, Thomasine, is home from Africa for a month so we welcomed her home on Friday and then spent Friday night, Saturday night, and all of Sunday hanging out with friends and family. It was a ton of fun but apparently (for this introverted, I need lots of alone time girl) exhausting at the same time. So instead of writing about all the details of our weekend, I'm going to write about what we wore instead. Pretty vain, right? Yep.

My friend Sarah took some impromptu family pictures for us after Church on Sunday. I hadn't planned on having anymore family photos taken in the near future but since we were all going to be dressed up I figured "why not"? We picked a brick wall to shoot in front of and the whole shoot literally took 15 minutes. And the pictures turned out AMAZING! (It really helps when you have a kid who is super friendly and pretty much smiles all the time:)

Here's what we wore...

Justin: Stussy button-up shirt (Goodwill, $4) Bullhead jeans (already owned) Black Airwalk shoes (already owned)

Courtney: Pink/gold tank top from Gap (Plato's Closet, $4) Black cardigan (already owned) White & grey, striped skirt (Goodwill $4) Black leggings from Target (already owned) Roxy boots (already owned)

Cooper: Plaid hat (gift from Grandma Marsha) White button-up shirt (hand-me down) Dress pants/suspenders (Once Upon a Child Consignment, $5) Shoes (Once Upon a Child Consignment, $4) Skull & Crossbones dress socks (The Children's Place, $3) Blue tie (The Children's Place, $5)




I'm certainly not an Easter nazi who insists on having the perfectly dressed family on Easter. I just happened to find pieces here and there that eventually turned in to a whole outfit. And, I was able to dress our family "nicely" for under $30. That feels good. And the outfits made for great family photo attire that I will cherish for a long time.

Hope you all had a great Easter weekend!

    1. Wow Michelle. You have a great memory. I definitely used to rock the stussy shirts in elementary school. I was SUCH a tom boy. haha. The memory I have of you is when you beat me in the 60 yard dash in gym class. I was so mad. In 5th grade I was named "fastest girl at Rex Mathis Elementary School" and in 6th you dethroned me. haha. I'm not still bitter, I promise. :))
