Editor's Note: Today I am wearing skirt by Smooki, Top by Elie Tahari, and Ann Taylor kitten heels.
Black Tie events in Fort Worth and New Orleans have been a part of my life since I was 18 years old. Being the prissy girl that I am I absolutely adore dressing up like a princess for the events with big hair! I love to see everyone in their finer and the feel of black tie events with the flowers and the band is always so magical. Here are some pictures of black tie events that I have attended with my kids over the past 4 years. It is so much fun for me to share the joy of these special events with my kids.

Love this quote!
Last night for dinner I had sweet kale salad from Costco with leftover baked chicken breast.
This is one of my favorite salad mixes from Costco. Delicious and it was a 5 min prep dinner!
I never grow tired of this time no matter who is singing in. India Carney did a great job!
