WIWS May 12

Actually took some pictures after Mass today so why not link up with the lovely ladies at Fine Linen and Purple.
Eden took that first picture.
This was my first Easter outfit before I switched to the outfit from TJ Maxx. The blouse is from Kohl's clearance and the capris are from TJ's. I originally was going to wear the blouse with linen khaki pants but I was so happy to find these capris to match.
We have a retired priest that substitutes often because our associate priest is helping out at the new mission parish in East San Jose. I think with the addition of first communion, he forgot about the Mom's blessing. I was so bummed because I look forward to it every year. Just did a private family blessing instead.
Lots of love to all the mamas out there.

7 QT

Happy to join Jen @ Conversion Diary!

1. This video/app is cracking me up. OK Go is such a fun band.

We love this video of theirs too from Sesame Street:

2. Dad is Fat by Jim Gaffigan.  Oh my, this book cracked me up. I usually wait at the libary for a book but I donwloaded this and so happy I did. I have no problem supporting a Catholic Dad with five kids. He described his wife as a "Shiite Catholic", ha!

3. I wanted to do a post like Colleen's all week but just never got around to it. I'm having lots of thoughts about parenting lately but I can't seem to get them all together.

4. Look at these sweet sisters:
5. Our favorite episode for the week is from the Backyardigans: Legend of the Volcano Sisters
At the park yesterday, they kept telling this boy they were playing with: "I'm Uniqua" (Eden). "I'm Tasha" (Anna) He was not amused. I have to say the songs from Backyardigans don't bug me much (yet) like Dora.

6. I'm thinking about ordering these glasses. I haven't had a new pair in like 15 years so it is about time.

7. I'm kind of obsessed with Top Shop and I'm so not into trendy clothes. But I ordered a TopShop shirt and houndstooth pants. Is houndstooth still in? Probably not but they match my black and white sandals.

Beach blogging

We needed a cool down today so we headed out to the beach and boy was it cold. Catie was shivering but she had fun. Eden fell in the canal and didn't care to have bare legs. Anna was fine once she put her sweater on.
Unfortunately we waited until after chores and lunch so we got caught in traffic on the way back. But the good thing about the traffic jam Eden caught up on some much needed sleep!

7 Quick Takes

I'm able to join in with Jen @ Conversion Diary this week for 7 quick takes

1. Does anyone listen to Pray As You Go podcast? Just added this to Stitcher and it gives you a 10 minute reflection each day with the gospel reading and song. I didn't do any vetting on it but so far it seems on line with the church. I usually wouldn't recommend something without checking that so if you know any different about this please let me know

2.  I gave up my addiction to Bejeweled Blitz. I've been playing it since the last trimester of pregnancy so like a year and a half?? Not sure why it took me so long.

3.  Five more weeks of kindergarten!! Can't decide if that is a long or short time but I'm sure too long for Eden! I think it seems long since a lot of schools are out before Memorial Day.

4.  Re:Sound. Not many years left as a young adult so I need to enjoy this while I can.

5.  I took Anna to Little Gym this morning since she had such a fun time at the birthday party last weekend. She had a really good time

6. Flashback Friday: May 2010: Eden at the Giants Game

7. More Flashback: May 2011: Mud Sisters

May Day 2

Such a busy busy Thursday.
Anna had fun at preschool.
Mommy had a hot workout at the track. Who knew I'd be working out at my high school twenty years after graduation.
Eden had a good time at play group and when we got home the gardener had the sprinklers on!!
Poor Catie didn't get to nap until 4 pm
We are going to try to watch "Brave" later tonight. Eden has had trouble falling asleep so maybe this will help. Hoping it is just a phase.

Happy May!

So happy May is here!! I want to try and post everyday. Wish me luck!! I'm also hoping to pray a rosary each day for each child. I'm finding that my mom anxiety goes down if I dedicate a prayer time individually for each child instead of "for the kids".
