Keep it movin'

I seriously can't thank Bella enough for what a huge inspo she is for me in fashion, blogging, business, LIFE!  She also inspired me to get movin' (after a big move) and get back to work with her latest #secondhandfirst feature
She made this!!!!!!!

I am so down with her #secondhandfirst movement that I don't even know where to start.
So, I'll start by linking to her blog here and doing my own post about it.
Sorry it's so SHITTY!  These are phone pics.  I need batteries for my camera and my mouse--and I hate working on my computer with no mouse.

The X-man and I have now been married 9 years and we popped out last night--kids in tow--to a little pub to celebrate.
This is my outfit.  Thrifted deep blue 80s velvet drop-waist dress (UNION MADE in the US) with ridiculous puff sleeves and lots of jewellery.

We just moved from Florida to Asheville 3 weeks ago!!!!!  There is literally an extra bathroom sink at my bedroom at the moment...
Tried to get good pics of the jewels, but you know it's shite.

Everyone loves the rear view!!!  

VELVET & LACE people!!!  I don't live in Florida anymore!!  Velvet & lace are back on the (closet) menu!!  Does that even make sense?

This is the business literally happening behind me, hollering at me about who is knocking over whose  building in the living room.  SSSHHHHH!  Mommy is doing important stuff here--dressing up and taking pics!  

My dress and lots of my jewellery are #vintage and soooooo very #secondhandfirst :)

I am linking up with Bella's post NOW!!!  I encourage anyone who has a blog about anything secondhand, albeit clothes, or WHATEVER, feel free to join in and link up.  The #secondhandfirst lifestyle goes beyond just clothes.  My house is decorated with vintage & secondhand items, my kids wear secondhand clothes & buy second toys.  When I give gifts, I think about what they would want and if there is a secondhand option.  It is the future and it is the only real sustainable solution.  
Here is Bella's blog link again along with her amazing feature about MEEEEEEEE!  I CAN"T!!  She so good ughhh.  
Please join us!!!  

Love & light
Becky <3 <3 <3 

P.S. At the Jack of the Wood pub my kids joined in with two other little girls who were the daughters of the band playing and literally took over the stage.
At one point, my husband tried to stop Baby Dream from jamming on the other little girl's guitar to which she promptly marched up to him to inform him that "NO, it's fine!!  She's in the SHOW!"
LMAO At one point they sang the ABC's and then Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to a BIG round of applause.  Afterwards the real band played and they were so good with a BADASS bango & fiddler player. 

FUUUUUN!  More on Asheville soon :D
