kennywood fun with dad!

hey all! yesterday, my dad and i went to our local amusement park...KENNYWOOD! we went later in the day and did the night rider thing, which was really nice. we spent about 4 and a half hours there and that was just enough time to get in all the coasters and a few other fun rides aaaand eat some yummy treats!
i took a few photos and thought i'd share them with you! enjoy!

yea i look pretty terrible in this last photo, but i like it anyways! if you were wondering what the heck in on my head, it's a chicken hat. we didn't buy those hats, though i think dad should have gotten that neato wooly hat! haha!

so this is the BEAUTIFUL necklace that i purchased last week from the ever talented oceanne , isn't it so lovely?! i'm going to be wearing it with the dress i bought for quinn's cousin's wedding in august. i'll post some better pictures of the entire outfit later! but i just wanted to show you how nice it hangs around the neck. it's such a delicate and pretty necklace, i couldn't be more pleased with this purchase! please go buy all of her things! she has many many gorgeous pieces!!!!

that's all for now dolls!!!

quick check-in

yep, i'm changing things once again. and i'll tell you why....things were looking alittle depressing around here and that's not what we're about. we're all about the whimsy here at O&C and i felt like the blog wasn't conveying that. i know you guys are probably sick on me changing things every couple of weeks. but i promise i'll get it here soon!

there's going to be a few changes here and there this week. you'll notice the colors changing here and there and probably the header. the layout will stay the same but once i get things straightened out, i know you'll love it just as much as i do!

also, i'll be introducing the new weekly segment tomorrow! yay! so keep a look out for that!
and hopefully in about a 2 weeks i'll get to share some pretty big and EXCITING news!!! i'm so stoked to share it with you guys, keep your fingers crosses things go as planned and then i can tell you allllll about it!
