What I Wore Sunday-vol. 13

Pin It
In an effort to stay focused on finishing my paper, I skipped doing a 7 Quick Takes on Friday.  I thought about doing it late, but it's not a huge deal.  I did want to do it mostly to re-share that I had 3 posts this week I enjoyed writing and I definitely met my goal for getting some posts up.  I hope you'll check out the What's up with that? post on Catholic rules, thoughts on the greeting card companies' exploitation during Mother's Day, and my review of the movie Lincoln.

We drove over to Albany yesterday to spend Mother's day weekend with my grandmother and some other family.  Mimi had a new outfit for the occasion and loved getting to bring us with her to Mass to show off her new Catholic granddaughter and grandson-in-law.  In honor of the special day, my WIWS picture is with my grandmother.  I believe her outfit is all Alfred Dunner :-)

Dress: Target
Cardigan: Old Navy
Necklace: Not sure, but those dark beads are magnetic so I just wrap it around and can change the length
Shoes: Same black pumps from Target you've seen before a million times :-)

The dress goes down to my knees with the buttons all the way down as well.  I've never considered this to be an immodest dress (it is sleeveless, but I always wear my cardigan over it in church), but today was a differ story.  I must have moved some way during church and I popped a button open.  A KEY button.  There was a little boy about 7 in front of us bouncing around the whole Mass.  When he turned around and was looking at me, I realized my dress was unbuttoned and I had just been up for communion.  No idea when it happened or who saw, ahem, things.  Needless to say, I was mortified.  At least it's not my regular church...

My aunt and uncle took us to Saratoga yesterday and we went to an olive oil shop the three of us had been to before, but my husband hadn't seen yet.  They have these little tankards with taps that you could sample all these different olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and seasoned salts.  Things like chipotle olive oil, basil olive oil, French Provence, etc.  There are at least 30 different tankards and there was no product that could be bought that isn't able to be sampled.  Awesome place.  Then we had some bubble tea, rode the carousel (my aunt and myself) and then hit up the Irish pub for appetizers before returning to Albany for ice cream at Emack & Bolio's, a favorite spot of ours.

My aunt and uncle hosted my great-aunt and great-uncle with my grandmother and us for a big dinner before we left.
The whole crew, minus my husband, the photographer.  That's Ralphie cat :-)  Can you tell my grandmother and great-uncle are brother and sister?
