Five Things

1.  I’ve been continuing my hunt for summer clothes, all the more important as spring weather is arriving fast and furiously.  I ordered a pair of skinny jeans and a shirt from The Gap.  I hope I like them!  I haven’t worn skinny jeans since 1997.  I have my eye on a few other things but I haven’t decided for sure yet.  I’m trying to buy things that I can wear to work as well as casually.

2.  I stopped in a local consignment store to see what they had yesterday.  I’ve had some good luck at their other location but the one closer to home tends to get a lot of Talbots, Cold Water Creek, etc.  I found a really cool black and white skirt in a size 6.  I almost cried when I could get it past my knees in the dressing room.  :(  Then I realized that while the consignment tag said 6, the actual skirt tag was a zero.  Whew!

3.  Delaney is loving all things Elmo at our house now.  She calls him Melmo and she says it over and over.  We have a Sesame Street puzzle and the kids have been fighting over the box this week.  It must be a cool picture for them to look at.  Delaney is still very cautious of talking/moving Melmo.  This is where he stays.  If we turn him around she freaks out, haha.


4.  Tomorrow is Andy’s birthday!  For a few short months we are the same age.  Hopefully the forecasted nice weather will contribute to a great birthday weekend for him.

5.  Here are some pictures of the kids from last weekend.

Tristan had a great time with a Play Doh ice cream and soda fountain set that I found at a consignment sale.


He was very intent on what he was doing.  I asked him to look at me and smile and this was all he could give me.


We got to spend some time outside.


Airplane!  Birds!  Things in the sky!
