peonies and blue lace

peonies and blue lace

I’m not sure if it takes you a few days to adjust to normal life after vacation, but I’m on day 3 of being home and still not adjusted. LOL. If you followed along on snapchat {dashing_darlin}, you had a small glimpse of everything that we saw and did on our Alaskan cruise with my family. It was a much needed relaxing time away while making lots of memories and capturing lots of memories too.

Today, I’m only going to share some moments {mostly peony moments} from our day in Seattle which included going to the Pike Place Market and also eating yummy food. While the rest of our group ate seafood at one of the famous pubs, I feasted on my favorite food ever: pizza {I have no pics of our food. Sorry!! Just trust me that it was awesome.}!!! If you didn’t already know, I detest seafood. Crazy, I know. By the way, can you believe how breathtaking the flowers are at the market?! I was in peony heaven.

I also have to share this fabulous lace dress that I purposely bought for this trip. I snagged it from T.J.Maxx for under $35 {originally $195.. Hello!!}. Brand name is Romeo & Juliet. I linked similar options below in my shop the post. It’s so beautifully made and the perfect shade of blue. My husband snapped a few pictures on the cruise boat before dinner one night. By the way, I’m be sharing all of the outdoor beauty on Friday.

Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to visit my little dashing world. I appreciate each one of you GREATLY. Here’s one last picture of the peony heaven. Gahh, I love.
