WIWS - April 21

Before you read, if you happen to live anywhere West of the Mississippi and your church is looking for an awesome AWESOME speaker (for adults, teens, middle schoolers, whomever), give my sister's blog a read!
 
Yes, I'm biased, but everyone who has EVER seen her speak will tell you that she's amazing and will be an incredible speaker for whatever you'd like!  She's currently road tripping around the American West and looking for churches/youth groups/wherever to speak.  She has NO speaker charge - you pay what you can, put her up on your couch, give her a gift card, just feed her an awesome dinner, she's all yours!
 
And now, for some fashion, or "fashion..."
 
 
Babies in their Easter dresses (Mary Claire's is Cecilia's from 2011, Elizabeth's is borrowed from a friend).  Good thing we took pictures before Mass, because Mary Claire decided to end her poop strike during Mass, in one of the few diapers we have that don't hold it in.  Epic.  Andrew wins best husband of the day for taking care of that!
 
And of course, as I write this Elizabeth is pooping while nursing, in an attempt to one-up her sister. 
 
Mom life.  Totally as glam as it sounds.

 
How to keep the kids from grabbing the camera from Dad?  Tell them they get to be in a picture!
 
Shirt:  Forever 21 (you've seen it before)
Skirt:  Banana Republic circa 2006?  Maybe not skinny enough to wear it yet, as evidenced by the fact that it's riding up to expose my knees...
Hair:  Wet, hopeless, and a reminder why I stopped pulling my wet hair into a bun just to save time...

 
Shoes:  DSW
 
Cecilia tells me that my shoes make me look "Just wike Minnie Mouse!" which is the highest form of flattery I can expect from her.  She was VERY excited to be wearing her new white flower shoes - so excited that she fell in the parking lot and scuffed them.  Sigh.  This is why I only bought her Pedipeds as dress shoes before - those things are almost impossible to scuff!  I've learned my lesson.
 
Linking up with FL&P - have a blessed Sunday!

  1. LOVING the shoes. Adds just the right amount of "Happy Spring" color to your outfit. Your littles look so sweet. The twins dresses are just to die for. Props to hubby for handling the poopapalooza at Mass. Know all about that this week for sure!! Happy Sunday!!

  3. Love the outfits. I need some advice from you on how you handle four little ones during Mass. My husband and I keep wondering how we are going to do it, when the baby is born.

    1. Okay, they aren't my kids, but I'd just like to add a grandmother's point of view. There are a couple of families and grandparentish couples who sit together at my church. The kids all get to sit with somebody other than a parent if they want, and the grandparental types get to be with a kid for a limited period of time. Win-win! I'm thinking about leaving the choir to sit in the congregation, and I can tell you that I would LOVE to help with somebody else's kids during Mass!

    2. We are one of those families! We love sitting with our extended Mass family on Sundays. :)

    3. How I wish I had any advice! Dress them nicely so that people go easy on you? Make sure they sing along with Latin chant so people realize that you go to Mass all the time and your kids just misbehave because they're little?

      Ours are... spirited. And John Paul and Cecilia have been fighting a lot more with each other lately, particularly in the pew. So we need to figure out our own issues!!!

  4. Love the skirt! That's a fabulous closet staple, and it looks great on you!

  5. Love the whole shebang...and I most wholeheartedly empathize with the poop brigade. Always waiting until Mass seems the norm... I'm addicted to DSW and fun shoes. When clothes are still a hit or miss for fit, the shoes can be fun. I love love love that pair - fantastic color and peep style for spring and summer! I hope it is warmer there than here! Happy Sunday to you all!

  6. I could eat those precious babies right up! In a figurative way. You look lovely, and I heart peep toes wedge shoes.

    1. I mean I could eat the babies, figuratively. You look lovely in a totally real way. I'm going to stop now.

    2. Haha! Their little knees are my favorite - once those dimples start forming it's all over.

  11. I know you said you've worn the top before, but I think it's my favorite part. The cut of it looks so easy to wear, and easy to nurse in.

  12. I love your blog!! Where did you get Cecilia's mantilla? I would love one like that for my 3yo!

    1. Thanks! I got it from an online Catholic store - Aquinas and More? Not sure if they're in business anymore... And we've lost her veil, so of course NOW she's asking to wear it every week!
