It's been a busy day here, but my favourite kind of busy: Mass, lunch out with friends, a drive along the coast of Maine to enjoy the beautiful sunshine, and then home for a delicious dinner waiting for us in the crockpot.
Hanging out again with the FLAP gang. :)
Alright, no further delays, here's the outfit:
|don't mind the Wii mess behind me......I kind of forgot it was there, haha|
I decided that it was 50º outside, goshdarnit, and I was going to dress for spring. Even if I froze a little on the way to and from the car. We Mainers are crazy like that. Anywho, I was fine at Mass, so it all worked out. Spring dresses, here I come!
This dress is sleeveless, which I don't like to do during Mass, so had to dig out a little sweater to go with it...this was the first time I wore either the dress or the sweater, so it took a little bit of getting used to. My only real complaint? It is a linen/cotton blend and wrinkled REALLY easily. Add that to the sitting/standing/kneeling stuff during Mass, and, well.....my backside was permanently wrinkled, even though I ironed it before we left, and it kinda bothered me. I'll have to reserve this dress for "mostly standing" events, I think.
Dress and sweater: I picked them up at JC Penny's....have no clue what brand. I forgot to look and the kids are heading to bed right now, so I don't want to be digging through my closet at the moment
Shoes: good ol' Target again...
Daylight savings time kind of did us in - the boys had to be woken up this morning (NEVER happens), and they were obnoxiously tired at Mass today. I almost made them go apologize to Father for the obnoxious yawns and fidgeting from their place in the front pew. Anywho, their grades:
Rascal #1: B
Rascal #2: B
Rascal #3: C (he insisted on sitting UNDER the pew for most of Mass, no matter how many times I pulled him out. Sigh).
Now the fun part - I do a regular post here titled "Kaleidoscope." Basically, just a compilation of random pictures that I want to share with friends and family....but have absolutely nothing to do with each other. It's time for another one of those! :) Enjoy!
|From our drive today...somewhere along coastal Maine. I love this state!|
|Rascal #2's latest bug poster|
|From our snow storm a few weeks ago - looking out our back door (heehee....totally singing CCR in my head right now)|
|The one and only picture I snapped on the silly carousel in our local mall before the carousel employee yelled at me because apparently photos and videos are not allowed.|
|Rascal #1 stole my phone|
|Boothbay Harbor - a stop on our drive today|
|an AWESOME house that's for sale that we found today - it's only $1million. Who wants to go in on it with us? ;)|
|The boys decorated their calendar for Good Friday. <3|
Alright, gotta run - have a great week, all!
