Hey all, I hope you had a good St. Paddy's Day. Did you do anything fun that you feel like sharing? My manner of celebrating in years past was to go to the nearest pseudo-Irish bar and get my drink on while listening to loud music, but that isn't really doable with babies. It's okay -- I've had my share of green beer! The highlight of my day was taking Olivia for a nice long walk outside while Tony made veggie burgers and oven fries for dinner. She is so curious about everything. I'm really glad the weather is warming up so we can go explore nature together.
We are just eating simple, no-fuss meals, trying to clean out the cabinets in preparation for our move. The other night I tossed gemelli pasta with cherry tomatoes and pesto. The kids couldn't get enough of this. Gemelli is a good type of pasta for Olivia -- easy to grasp. Ditalini and rotini are other good baby pastas.
I've been wearing my eyes out looking at house rentals, pet couriers, and movers. Lots of emails and phone calls. When I needed to take a break, I went to the mall and bought a few things.
I'm going to try to use this bag as a diaper bag. It has pockets on the side that should be perfect for holding sippy cups, but I'm not sure if it's big enough. The bag I used since Jackson was wee finally wore out, and I've been using a backpack that I got for free. Free is nice, but it's too bulky for my taste. Besides, this bag is much cuter.
I am all about the accessories.
Last but not least, couple of shirts. How fun to look at short-sleeve shirts, skirts, and sundresses, knowing that I will soon be putting away my sweaters and corduroys.
I rarely shop without the kids, so it was relaxing to take my time browsing the clothing racks and trying things on. I'm no fashion plate, I usually stick to Target and H&M with the occasional band t-shirt or thrift store find thrown into the mix. Works for me. Where do you like to clothes shop? Bought anything cute lately?
Have a great weekend you guys. And if you haven't seen this video yet, you must watch, although your ears will be mad at you. We we we so excited!
