Dallas: train, legoland, aquarium...

Oliver and I took a mini-vacation to Dallas this week while I was off work. While on our way to ride the train we stumbled upon a petting zoo in the stockyards. Oliver had so much fun!

Had to get one more time in with this darling vintage outfit because it will be going in the mail this week for a new little boy to enjoy!

Everyone on the train was so friendly and the conductor personally greeted Oliver with a handshake. How sweet.
The train was so beautiful. It has been around since the mid 1920's and it had lots of charm!

Of course Ollie had to bring his baby along for the ride! He even gave her a little look out the window!

Legoland was fun but nothing even close to the one in California.

The aquarium was pretty cool though...

Vintage jon jons...

fun at old navy...

2 of Ms. Laura's (Oliver's babysitter) sons were in a play this weekend. I literally had tears in my eyes, I was so so proud of them!

chair, monkey business & cutest overalls ever...

I found this little antique chair at a garage sale in an old barn for $5!! The seat cushion was torn but I finally got around to recovering it.

Oliver seems to like it. He pulled it right up to the coffee table and sat down to have a little snack...

Monkey Business...

Ummm... probably not going to get 'mom of the year' award for allowing this. Oliver climbs up on the arm of the sofa and jumps into the cushions. over. and over. and over. I have to pick and choose my battles and I guess I've just given up on this one.

Who can resist a little boy with his baby doll???
Melts my heart!

I have a serious addiction to vintage overalls and jon jons. I have to say these are one of my favorites...
Unfortunately, they are about an inch too short so they will be going up for sale soon (or one of my fellow VKC members may be getting them in exchange for a cash register for Ollie!)

To see more vintage cuties visit

baby Claybrook...

My brother is expecting his first child with his girlfriend Jaime. They had the ultrasound today and found out the baby is a........

Wow. I am so excited to meet this little niece of mine and I'm in love with her already. In fact, I bought 2 little dresses today at my local thrift store (I hope she doesn't mind used/vintage). I am so sad that we are not living in the same city or even state, but, I know that despite the distance we will have a very special bond. Enjoy the rest of your time in your mommies warm, cozy womb baby Claybrook! Your daddy told me to save your cousins Vans shoes even though they are boys shoes. Guess he's gonna make you a skater girl!! Love it!
