Linking up with Fine Linen and Purple, too!
First!! A very Happy Happy Birthday to my other sister, Emily!!
(thanks to Facebook for the stolen photo)
I've got some serious life jealousy right now as she is about to embark on some serious foreign travel and if she doesn't update her blog on the regular while she's gone -- I'll do nothing but I will be very disappointed. Thanks Em!
The hair got thrown into a Peter Cottontail before we left for Mass. I wore my hair like that every single day for a what felt like several years so I try to steer clear but sometimes you just hafta.
We were so proud of ourselves last night for getting in the car at 4:59 for 5:00 Mass just a few blocks away but theeeen ... plot twist!! We were those people that walked in during the sign of peace. I assumed that they were just doing the "greet your neighbor" rigamarole but after everyone knelt down I realized that we had set a new tardy record. Because we regularly hit up the hospital Mass when Simon is post call and maybe we aren't avid bulletin readers we totally missed that the time had been moved up to 4:30 at our parish. Simon put the minivan pedal to the metal and we raced over to an actual 5pm mass where we (oh soooo smartly) sat in the empty cry room and what were the words Simon used? Oh, yes: pointless and miserable. The kids will be relegated back to pews next week because they went into noisy swine mode in the cry room - too much space and freedom makes for some appalling toddler behavior. Sometimes I think Simon and I were born yesterday when it comes to parenting.
It was interesting to read the comments on Kaitlin's post on wearing sleeveless tops to Mass last week. I think I've probably worn a sleeveless top or two before but maybe I should suck it up this summer and keep my shoulders to myself. We'll see if I stay strong when the humidity hits. Saints have suffered, Grace.
shirt: old Old Navy
skirt: super old Banana Republic
shoes: Kork-Ease via eBay
Julia: D- (gave the priest a super awkward side hug on the way out and sort of redeemed herself)
Sebastian: F (it's a wonder he didn't shatter the glass with his recreational fist pounds and happy screams)
Hopefully you'll link it up with me and mine. Outfits and behavior? Great. Just outfit? Great. Just behavior? Great. I love it all.
If you want to go the Twitter/Gram route let's hash it #sundaybest and I'll put the photos up here next veek.
And! Next week I think we're going to tag along with Simon for a tiny work trip so unless I can get some weird interstate WiFi signal I might push it to Monday. Fair warning.
Thanks in advance for joining!! Be glad we're separated by the vast internet because I'd be tempted to kiss you.
