1 Down, 29 To Go

It's InstaFriday linkup at Life Rearranged.
 Nothing much to report this week.
I'm more than happy to share I've crossed something off my deployment bucket list.
No, I have not finished the dreaded closet!
I bought my homecoming outfit!

I was trying so hard to not buy anything.
Then out of the blue, I just happen to find myself at the mall. 
Standing outside my favorite store. Coveting the above outfit.
Having this mental conversation with myself...
"I want a pair of red pants. I do. Those are cute. Maybe next month? Maybe never..."
Then it dawned on me, "I should look for a homecoming outfit!"
Yes! In the store I went, grabbed an armful of dresses, and headed to the fitting room.

First try...cute but too casual. I want this dress but crossing my fingers it will hit the clearance rack.

Next, this coral number. I almost went with this one. It was fitted and cute. It needed about three inches off the bottom. But it wasn't screaming "Woohoo! You're finally home! Call the babysitter!" 
So I tried the blue.

I sent out an Instagram request for opinions. Thank you followers! 
We made a good choice.

Let's see what else can I show you?
The kids?

These are kiss faces. Yeah, I wouldn't have guessed it either.

That is all for this lovely Friday.
I'm semperfifam on Instagram.
Hope to see you there!
