What I Wore Sunday

(linking up with FLAP, you should do the same!) 

1. Simon asked if that was a position I assumed naturally in everyday life
2. which made me laugh like a horse because he was right on the lettuce - no.
3. ah! immodesty hole in my t-shirt

I've always had a knack for dressing inappropriately for the weather (my blog that will talk solely about the weather should be up and running soon ... in the mean time I still need to talk about it because it makes me really angry) and this morning was no different. Even though it is basically May which is basically the middle of summer it was still a frozen tundra this morning but we were running late (uncharacteristically, of course) so I had to brave the conditions in my casual corner on top + prairie mom on the bottom. It was warm in time for the FLAP shoot but still ... this weather is driving me to threaten to drink. By the time August and its 111 degree temperatures roll around I'll be donning leopard mink and fleece lined platform sneaks but right now I just want to wear dresses that spur me to ask Simon, "is this too short?" and he pauses for a long time and says, "do you think it's too short?" which means, "um yes but please don't spiral your annoyance at me" which doesn't matter because I leave the confines of our house .......... never.

What else? Nothing.

Prairie wear:
shirt: (poorly altered by guess who?) American Apparel
skirt: Target
clogs: Moheda c/o

Mass Grades:
Julia: C+ only because we brought her security blanket because she was running a fever and I recently had, "sucker" inked onto my ribcage
Bash: D which really should be an F but sympathy points because his request for a handshake from the priest was ignored as we walked out
Theo: A+ sat pretty in his car seat the entire time

And now for some photos and captions from this afternoon because this is a blog and that's what blogs do (other than post deep and introspective outfit photos that you care about deeply, I'm sure) ...

1. I asked Julia who dressed her in that sweet little getup? Her answer, "um, just my Simon."
2. I think Julia told me 48 times in a row that Sebastian had "poopy on his fay-yace!!" and I think Sebastian stood just like that for the entirety of her tattling tirade.
3. I have no idea what they're doing here but I can guarantee it's nothing my yardwork skillset can handle.
4. He gets his smile from his smiley mother.
5. While we were all outside toiling carrot top was inside chatting with the ceiling fan turned to still as a statue setting. Spoiled.

Have a tolerable afternoon.


  1. Picture of Theo is a Kodak moment.

  2. Your hair really is crazy amazing (craymazing? Is that would the kids are calling it these days?) lately. Share your wisdom, Oh Great Grace!

    Theo's smile!! I just want to smooch him. And my kids were super into ceiling fans too. And blinds. Contrast?

  3. I love Theo pictures! He's adorable!

  4. Theo's smile can make anyone heart melt...mine included. So sweet.
    Miss Julia calling Papa "my Simon"...there is some competition better watch out with those younger women. LOL!
    Sebastian who will eat anything, anywhere...a man after my own heart. He reminds me of my Jonathan. Oh the photos I have of him would make you scream with laughter.
    As always wishing you a lovely, calm and poop disaster free afternoon. What? Dreams really do come true...for some people. (wink, wink)

  5. I like your prairie skirt....and I'm always finding immodest holes in my shirts as well..usually not until I'm actually someplace and can't do anything about it.

  6. I misread your "drink" as "brink"...and this never ending winter has definitely sent me and my 3 kids over the brink! Farewell sanity. It was nice knowing you.

    And ditto Kayla - your hair is amazing! What's your secret spit up + mashed Cheerios?!?

  7. It was freezing here yesterday, too. And supposed to be cold until mid-week. Sick of it. Especially since we've had tantalizing glimpses of warmer weather here and there. But I digress..... you look smashing, darling! Slender and lovely, as usual. And I would pay a bazillion $$ for that hair.

  8. I am so immodest when you count the holes in my shirts. Looking beautiful as always. And Bash's faces are hilarious.

  9. Compliment, compliment, compliment, but really what I want to know is where you got Julia's sandals because I need some for Cecilia?

  10. That picture of Theo! But I really love the one of Bash with the rake... three times the size of him but he's holding it with pride!

  11. Hi, Grace, I have never commented, but really enjoy your blog..... Is there any way you can change the font size back? I've been squinting ever since the change, lol!

    1. You got it! Thanks for saying something! And reading!

      One more for good measure !

    2. let me know if that isn't big enough! thanks again!

  12. I love that necklace! I'm not sure I could pull it off, but I like it just the same. :) Theo is a doll. Heart melting - what a smile!

  13. Nope, YOU are the prettiest.
    And Theo is the cutest, that hair is killing me!

  17. Mine adored talking to fans, too! We said, "Do you want to talk to your friend, Mr. Fan? Or how about Mr. Fan's Brother-in-Law, Mr. Bedroom Fan? Or his wife, Mrs. Ceiling Fan?" It's such a funny but short stage!

    4. His enthusiasm is apparent. c;

    Really cute outfit!

  18. The cutest family.

    Theo has the sweetest little smile and Bash does a perfect grumpy old man impression.

  21. I am with you on the cold weather (I am in northern IL)and I have had ENOUGH of it. The other day I clicked off someone's blog just because they live in Florida and happened to be talking about grilling out. I realize it's very unfair to them, but I have to try and keep my sanity. Thankfully checking into your blog helps with that-love your posts!

  22. I loooove my maxi skirts. I am not ashamed that I have three, even though my sisters call them my "homeschool skirts" every time I wear one. Also that picture of Theo just made my night, he is too adorable. Annnnd now I'm back to studying.

  23. Just so you have confirmation, you are hilarious! And make my day a bit funnier each time I visit your blog!

  24. Oh my goodness, you have the cutest kids ever. (Well, except for my kid, but you know. ;) ) Love Sebastian's scowl in these pics, haha!

  25. THis gave me a good laugh. The pics are too precious, Grace!

  26. Bash looks like such a badass. Also, if you have platform fleece lined sneaks, you're doing a serious injustice by not using them in a WIWS post.

    And praise the heavens above that you live far enough south that you didn't have 3 inches of snow Thursday. I wanted to cry.

  27. Grace, I laughed so many times reading this post. First, the hole in the shirt. Second, the grades, Bash´s D and why he didn´t get an F. Third, Bash and the rake. I showed my husband all three, we both laughed :D

  28. An outstanding shaгe! I hаve just fοгwarded this onto a fгiend who had been cοnducting а littlе homework
    on this. And he асtually bought me

  35. Sincerely and charitably wondering why you brought a fevering child to Mass. It's thr bane of my existence when someone brings a sick kid to Mass that then gets my entire family of ten (also with small kids) sick. Please stay home out of consideration for others next time...
