Linking up with the fine FLAP ladies. It's Gaudete Sunday, y'all: give it up for pink. Err, rose.
Skirt: passed down from my Mom
Heels: old old Target
Earrings: clearance at Nordstrom Rack, and my holidayish favorite
Hair: un-shampooed, so up in a clip, a ponytail holder and about 45 bobby pins
I feel a little like a pink Advent candle in this getup, but it seemed appropriate. And thank heavens for the probably too-long skirt, because the velcro on Joseph's shoes snagged my nylons above my knee during the homily and a silver dollar sized hole ensued. Modesty for the win.
Also, our shutterbug friend came over to snap some shots to include in our Christmas cards. Here's my frontrunner for favorite:
At the height of frustration I shouted WHAT'S THE POINT OF HAVING CHILDREN IF THEY WON'T SIT AND SMILE FOR A CHRISTMAS CARD PICTURE?!?!? And everyone in the room took a few steps back from me so as to not get zapped when the lightning struck.
It took a youtube video playing on someone's phone, eight mint M&Ms, and endless pretend sneezes but we did get one with both boys looking forward and slightly smirking.
And everyone's welcome to join me at confession next Saturday.
