 This morning I woke up with a stinky diaper in my face and a foot in my side.  For some reason, Princess Sparkles and Pigtails LOVE to crawl into our bed in the morning (and sleep horizontal!).  I'm half asleep so I just sorta pull them up and roll over to my side (really because that's all the room I have).  Oh, it'd be so nice to have a King bed...an Eastern King.

I got ready to shower and I see little Pigtails trying to take her own shirt off (Gosh, I remember before the kids I could take nice long showers... now I'm out in 60 seconds).  So I let her shower with me (and she hogs up the water and stands in the middle so I have to step around her, trying NOT to get shampoo in her eyes).  Haha, then I left the two kiddos to shower with Camouflage...

Now we're off to church (only 30 minutes late!).  Thank GOD for Sunday school.  Seriously.  I'll finally have an hour or so of free babysitting (YES!) so I can relax and listen to Pastor Jeans speak.  I love my church (and not just for the free babysitting).

Hey! Button looks awesome - THANK YOU for adding it!!!

I know what you mean about showers. Ugh. I love my daughters, but I also love my PRIVACY. Now, I can't shower or take a bath in peace. Ever. It's like they have radar for it.

P.S. I complained last week about high CAbi prices, but I'm going to break down and buy those white jeans after seeing you in them! I tried them on and they fit like a dream...

Daphne said...

Love both of these outfits. Very creative with the red striped tunic.
Oh, I feel your pain. We always make the same mistake and let the kids in our bed and hours of kicking and tossing we remember why we should never do this. And we do have an Eastern King! Cuddle times are now for morning only.
Glad you had some break at Church! :)

Baths are better for entertaining and giving mom some breathing room. I know you can't leave them unattended but you can get something done like reading, folding laundry or having a cup of coffee--and the tub is a great place for feeding them messy stuff. Love the fresh Mykonos look.

Claire said...

aww glad you get to relax in church xx

I really love the red and navy tunic, and the Mykonos look.I think it's the wide brown belt that pulls it together for me.

I love the tunic from the first outfit...and with the leggings and booties? Perfect styling.

But the second outfit is definitely my favorite. I've always been too scared to try a white pant, but I may just have to break down and buy a pair after Easter, because I am dying to copy this look!

Kimberlee said...

Love the second outfit. Alot.

And also, my kids sleep that same way.

Marisa Violeta said...

The tunic in the first outift is really cute :) You look adorable!

Hazel☺ said...

Aww i'm sure the time you spend with them is always special :)

Lea Soe said...

Mrs. J said...

I dont have any kids but it sure does sound hectic! I have enough trouble relaxing on my days off as it is! I love both of your outfits I'm seriously having trouble deciding which one I would wear if I looked as good as you in them:)

GIRL AND CLOSET said...

aww, hope you had a great day at church, every mom deserves a break! And even though your day was hectic your outfits are SO gorgeous. Love those boots paired with your tights & dress. xx veronika

Gracey said...

lol. Claire, you're so funny. I love hearing your stories about your daughters.

And I love these outfits too - you're making me regret I didn't get some open-toed boots I saw the other day. Both of these outfits are fabulous.

So beautiful. The sunglasses are amazing. And I especially love the striped top.

Becca [Free Honey] said...

Oh man, that does not sound like a relaxing sunday at all!! At least you looked cute while you were chasing these rugrats around!

Melissa said...

I can't wait until we find a new church. I miss going to church regularly and having that time.

I love the outfit with the white jeans!!! The stripes are fabulous and the contrasting brown belt is PERFECT!!! You really look incredible!

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

Alex said...

both of these outfits are absolutely fabulous!

I like the first one, with the capri leggings and those open toed booties, it is modern and edgy.

Then the second look is just so so so effortlessly chic. You positively exude class in this outfit, and you are killing those white pants, missy!
