Black Maxi Weekend

Yesterday was such a fun and busy day!  I worked all day at the boutique, went out for dinner at Two Brothers, a microbrewery near us, and came back to our house to continue the party with a ping-pong tournament and the new "Pictionary Man."  Needless to say, yesterday rocked!  I also wanted to look chic and be comfortable all day.  I picked up this black maxi from Forever 21 last year for a total steal; I think it was $7!!!  Yesterday was its first debut out of the house, and it passed the test.  I added an old light brown belt to anchor the whole thing and keep it from looking too dressed up (long black dresses have a way of doing that).

After shooting the regular blog photos, Mike and I had an impromptu family shoot.  Here are the highlights:
