Break.

Summing up some of the fun things we did over break, now that it is over (sad).  This week has not been too bad.  I am actually going to use this week to get ahead with school.  I have finished my work for the most part.  I am reviewing material now, planning to do another assignment tomorrow.  My binder is already organized. I am doing this - blogging. It feels odd.  I feel a little suspicious.  Anyways...

We went to the pumpkin patch with Leah and Elias (and moms, of course :)...



...obviously, they were enthralled with the pumpkin selection...
mulch everywhere, including mouths...


...we took a walk to the grocery store on a pretty day...my car had problems last week...the perfect time for that to happen and a perfect excuse to get some rest at home...


...we attended E's first birthday party, which was stinking adorable and a lot of fun.  I believe Eloise is pulling on Ev's dress while chewing on her teether...


...Perfect timing of break and girlie visits = Saturday night fun with the girls...


...we got lots of quality time with Auntie Deepu...


...Eloise and Elias stole each other's toys...


...then we headed to Chicago...



...we went to the aquarium...


...Eloise loved watching the dolphins and the fish...


...she met her fun cousins and aunt...


...and we walked, and we walked, and enjoyed all that downtown Chi-town has to offer - that refreshing city air...




It was quite fun.

HAIR.

You guys.  These are by far these worst videos ever made.  Yet I made them.  That's your first piece of information.  Second - why?  Why on earth would you post these silly, low-quality videos? I've had some people ask about my hair recently, specifically the waves/curls I've been doing. And, we've all talked about getting together, but sometimes it just doesn't work out.  So, here you go.  I can't wait to get my first thumbs down on YouTube.  Also, I am completely aware that there are much more important things going on in the world right now. 🙂
The main product that makes the difference for me is my curling iron, The Beachwaver (I use the S1 most of the time, S .75 less often).  I swear I'm not trying to sell it. I just really, really like it.   I realize it is a lot of money for a curling iron, so it's an investment (the 20 % off coupons from Ulta apply to this product when they're available and you can apply for their points system - I got min…

Current clothing faves.

Regular blogging, she said, right?  Whoops.  Seriously...I'm trying.  I swear I'll get more consistent.  Anyways...  
Madewell is killing me right now.  The idea of spending more on maternity clothes that won't fit in three months is too much to stand, but I am still running out of stuff to wear, so I decided to try some things on the in the store recently (Holla - store close to home!) and holy cow, they are winning this season.  Madewell is one of those brands that I find doesn't look as cute on the website or hangers as it does in person.  Here were my favorites...Some outer layers to wear over maternity tanks and tees and then a few other tops that can expand. 

This long cardigan.  I typically don't wear long cardigans because of my height, but this one seems to work - I think it must be the weight.  

Look at this you guys.  You are wearing a sweatshirt.  But you look like you are wearing a structured jacket.  BOOM. 

This shirt is incredible. Works with a belly, bu…

This. Girl. - I love her.
Two is hard sometimes, you know that?  So fun and so taxing - all at the same time.   This little person becoming their own human being, little by little.  Our girl, she is very much her own person.  Stubborn, strong-willed.  But sweet and cuddly.  And SO much fun.   Asking Jesus for help as we aim to shape this little being - allowing her to blossom, yet to obey. In my frustration sometimes I imagine this will of hers standing up to something more substantial in the years to come (not just potty training or foods she dislikes), which gives me some relief - She'll stand strong to her faith being rocked; She'll ward off that idiot of a boy (they'll all be idiots in my opinion, I assume) who thinks he is worthy of her attention.
He has created her this way - our feisty, silly, sweet little girl.  I am so thankful.
