This and that

First, while you have all seen it before, I am posting the following picture in this post as an entry to a contest over at communal global. It's a fabulous little blog that I get so much enjoyment out of. Anyway, the contest involves linking a post with a picture that represents my "today". In other words what does my "today" look like. Well, this picture is it. This embodies the wonder, amazement, and glory that comes with being an almost one year old. It also represents everything about every single day of my life that I just can't get enough of....this little, wonderful person.

Next, I need to add a few new finds to the all things baby post I did. I have come across a few websites that I have grown to check as frequently as the others I mentioned. Both will also send you an email if you don't want to have to search them out every time!  - I am all about hand-me-downs and consignment sales when it comes to kids clothes. They grow out of them entirely too fast to spend as much money on an outfit as you would for yourself. However, there are times when I like to search out more boutiqueish type clothes (without paying boutique prices). I mean, I have zero sense of style. That being said, I would like to at least give Lila a fighting chance at being stylish and cute. Carter's and Old Navy stuff all starts to look the same to me. SO, I check this website (or they actually send me an email) to see if there are any great outfits that are affordable. Sometimes there are, sometimes there really are not. You can come across great finds here though. They also show other things besides clothes. -  This one is VERY similar to

Moving right along, we will be leaving for my dad's in Palm Beach on Saturday. When I say we I mean Lila, Sara, and I. Seth is in spring mayhem and I won't really see him again until June I think. BUT, I made a whopper of a mistake with this trip and I really am feeling just horrible about it. As a teacher, spring break is like Christmas break only farther away, less work, and more exciting because it means the year is coming to an end. I start thinking about spring break in November (sometimes October). I can't help it. Plus, I always know that Seth will not be able to participate in whatever it is I decide to do. So, I decided it would be a great idea to go see my dad with Lila and my sister. We don't get to go to his house very often and it worked out great. We got a fantastic deal on a flight and I just did it. I planned it forever ago and was so proud of myself.

That is, until I realized that I planned a trip on Easter. Lila's first Easter. Lila's first Easter WITHOUT Seth. I didn't even think about Easter at all when I planned it. It never even crossed my mind. That would be downfall of planning for spring in November. So as it has quickly approached I am feeling really guilty and horrible about this. I mean, she won't be doing any hunting for eggs or decorating them, but that doesn't matter!  My poor, over-worked husband will not be with his family on a holiday.

Really, at this point, there is nothing I can do about this but apologize like crazy. I'm sorry honey. I'm very sorry. Maybe by our third or fourth kid I will be more on top of things again. Ok, that is severely ambitious. BUT, I will try!

Anyway, there will probably be minimal blogging in the coming week. Have a great spring break to anyone who is able to take one.
