2. preparing for battle with my shield of flared nostrils and Bash's brows
3. Julia's ready for rain, Sebastian's prepared for a full blown flood
I was flying Hans Solo with the kids for Mass prep today and if the second photo is any indicator ... I was super thrilled about the process. I did manage to shoddily alter these pants while letting the whir of the sewing machine drown out the children's early morning chirps. You know that the bell means serious business when I pull out these wide leg bottoms (see photos 1, 2, and 3 for proof). I bought them when I was pregnant with Julia and never think I'll get big enough to fill them out again ... and then ... laugh laugh. Laugh.
Simon's last call weekend until January will come to a blessed close in about 90 minutes and I'm hoping these pants are roomy enough to withstand a super happy jig, endure a little tap dance, and tolerate a trip to enjoy some fine Chinese cuisine ... praise all things good and really good.
(altered) pants: Gap Maternity
shirt: Target Maternity
necklace: eBay - similar
the kids' Mass behavior:
Julia: B- for being very good with the exception of almost successfully pulling down my pants from behind during the consecration
Sebastian: C+ for effort but confined places and spaces are just not a natural habitat for Bash these days
And despite their not stellar performances we still took them to see Santa right after Mass. We're such suckers.
p to the s ... didn't Kayla do an amazing job with the blog's new design? I don't know if she is available to do others but if you send her enough harrassy emails like I did ... she might reconsider.
Linking up with the ladies over at Fine Linen and Purple ... you should do the same.
