Happy 34th Anniversary to the two people who passed on those genes that make me look ridiculously young:
That's my dad at 21 and my mom at 23 (on their wedding day). No wonder I get mistaken for a high school student even though I'm 27!
And what would a WIWS post be without an out-of-focus shot of what I wore?
Dress & shirt are repeats, and I promise I DID wear shoes to Mass - this was taken hours after we got home, because our usual 9:00 Mass has changed times and we have to be out the door in time for an 8:30! I didn't really have any way of expressing "Corpus Christi" in my attire - if only I had a fish-print dress to go with the gospel :P
They've been announcing it at the beginning and end of Mass for the past few weeks and it's been in the bulletin, but the same people who are normally late also usually leave early, so there was a not-insignificant number of people walking in halfway through and looking VERY confused!
We used chocolate-covered pretzels as this week's bribe, which worked VERY well for John Paul, but Cecilia was her usual self. She was VERY upset not to get one when we got home, so I think I'll use them again and see if that helps next week... It's a huge sacrifice having chocolate-covered pretzels at home, of course, since somebody has to eat them ;) But I think we can handle it!
Check out some well-dressed ladies at FL&P!
And because you KNOW I can't resist a linkup, also linking up with Grace, the only blogger who makes me feel like my life is a little bit normal...
On am unrelated note, if you're in the DC area and have wanted to try a produce delivery service, we use From the Farmer and LOVE it! They're running a promotion that ends today - if you sign up and tell them I referred you (Rosie Hill), you get $20 off and I get a free basket! It's win-win!
