What I Wore Sunday

before you start spouting off inspirational New Year's Resolution posts let me just beat you to the punch and say that my lofty rez is to stop looking at the ground ... or to stop taking photos. Or both.

and to stop looking so happy and ready for pics.
(yes, I'm aware the bump is now coming to a point and I almost can't blame the Bluetooth wearing weirdo at the gym for asking, "were you due yesterday?!" laugh.)

Anyway ... the most wonderful time of the week: what I wore. 

Why yes I am wearing my trusty uniform of leggings, boots, tunic, neutral cardigan, puffmommy face, and glasses ... again. It's this or my very roomy and very Kelly green Target (via Goodwill, of course) swimsuit coverup that I find myself slipping into more and more and more these days. Simon loves it.

Simon walked by and offered to save you kind readers from another outfit rerun next week by suggesting I feature him in a, "What My Husband Wore After His Sunday Nap and Before He Has Tended to His Hygiene" post. So ... look forward to that. I can 100 million percent guarantee that his reindeer pants will play a starring role.

After we attended Mass, we braved the mall and took the kids to see Santa. I don't know why. Maybe I'm feeling a little bit bad because the kids' only gift from their parental units was purchased from a nice man named Craig Slist or maybe I just wanted to wait in line for 43 minutes while telling Julia, "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalmost our turn" over and over and over and over again. We felt guilty for not shelling out $43.99 for "The Blitzen" package of one 5x7 photo so the visit was a mere 12 seconds long but I got an illegal Instagram of the trip. We might do it again next year. And by might I mean - we absolutely willn't. 

the goods:
leggings: Target Maternity
cardigan: Banana Republic
glasses: Firmoo (8 whole dollars)

Kids' Mass Behavior:
Little J: A-
Bash: B+
Christmas Eve Eve miracles do happen, apparently. 


Linking up with the fine ladies over at Fine Linen and Purple ... you should do the same.

  3. After $70 shelled out for school photos, we skipped Santa this year. We figure he won't be scarred at age two.

  4. Mall Santa? Seriously?
    Next time some Anon Troll comes blowing the "You're A Terrible Mother" horn, please direct them to this post.

    Mall. Santa.

    Saint.

  5. You win the award for mother of the year for braving the Mall the weekend before Christmas. And I'm totally impressed that neither of them cried. My kids were always scared of Santa at that age!

    P.S. Ain't no shame in Craigslist.

  8. Frye boots from Ebay!? Why have I never thought of that before?! I think being nine months pregnant is gift enough for everyone!
