Today it’s High Five for Friday on Lauren Elizabeth’s blog, and I’m participating! Here goes my top 5 things of the week list:
5.This pink purse from Payless.
I got this several months ago (couldn’t resist – $17!) but was almost always too afraid to wear it. Would it look too much like I wanted to be Barbie? If I wore it with pink, would it be too matchy-matchy? If not, would it even match? Too many questions, with too many kids waiting. But I guess too many kids also mean too little time to think about it. After I had it for church Sunday, I simply have not had a chance to move my stuff into another purse. So now I’m fashionable whether I want to or not :).
I’ve updated it every single day for its first week, and surprisingly, I’m not tired of it. With my old blog, I’d over analyze a new post so much that I almost never updated. Now I’m committed not to let this die. Instead of obsessing to make sure every word will knock your socks off, I’ll settle for just distracting you for a little bit (at least enough to win your click).
3.New family pictures.
Don’t they look great on top of our piano?? They remind me of how cute our kids really are, before looking down at their not-so-cute tantrums.
Our latest favorite place is Chili’s. When Holly was just a few days old, my mom watched the kids while we went there and ate HUGE cheeseburgers. It felt so good to escape parental responsibility and be like teenagers again, talking about random stuff and wiping ketchup from our mouths (or maybe that was just me lol).
Speaking of which, I just came back from that, and now is way too late to be blogging (past midnight – but hey, I gotta have me-time at some point!!). Which brings us to the last and most important item from this list:
Good night (and let me know what YOUR high fives are!)
