Happy Laetare Sunday! If you have any pink in your wardrobe, I'm sure you wore it. I look terrible in pink, so I have none. But Andrew (in a pink-and-blue bowtie) and the girls all wore pink, so we tried!
Fun fact (thanks, wikipedia): Did you know that Catholic weddings are traditionally banned during Lent, but are permitted on Laetare Sunday? Good excuse to get pictures of some awesome vestments :) Our priest was decked out in rose and it was pretty beautiful!
My "favorite" Mass behavior today?
Cecilia, loud and clear in the middle of the gospel: "WHO HAD A FART???"
Me: "Shhhh Cecilia, we whisper at Mass!"
Cecilia: "Who had a fart?"
Me, resigned: "Who had a fart, Cecilia?"
Cecilia: "I had a fart!!!"
Anyway, here's my link-up to Fine Linen & Purple:
I practiced with the self-timer on the camera after we got home from Mass, since there was no time this morning (grrrr daylight savings) and Andrew had rehearsal straight afterwards. As you can see, Elizabeth fell asleep in her car seat during the 4-minute ride home.
I artfully placed that diaper on the floor for contrast. Or it was already there because that's just how our house looks these days...
Eventually I managed to get it somewhat in focus. I wore a Forever 21 striped maxi dress with a sheer-ish lacy shirt on top for modesty, warmth, and nursing. Really it seems like I have a lot of Forever 21 stuff, but it's maybe 2 outfits that are stretchy and somewhat disposable since they were cheap and fit my ever-changing body. Maybe I'll spend more money on clothes when I'm not a different size every week!
Andrew dressed Mary Claire. In a red shirt and pink pants. I don't really know... But she was liturgically appropriate!
See, even with the baby getting handsy, you see nothing!
And my Bobs, which are like faux-Toms (they even donate a pair of shoes for each pair purchased) and my students love them but make fun of me because they're knock-offs. BUT they cost the same and I had a coupon ($25 off) for DSW, so I wasn't about to pay full price for a brand I couldn't get in-store!
Cecilia does own her own tiny pink pair of Toms. And they are AMAZINGLY cute. And they were -$10, so it's cool.
Check out more lovely ladies in their Sunday best!
