WIWS (06.01.2014)

I haven't linked up with Fine Linen and Purple for What I Wore Sunday in a very long time, (mostly because I probably have not done more than throw my wet hair into a pony tail before Mass in just as long) so I tried to pull out of bed a bit earlier and spend some time preparing for Mass to see if it would help me out of my Mass attention rut. I don't know if it worked. Mass started out a little bittersweet: it is always difficult for me to adjust to a new location. The songs are different, and often my favorites are not played. Today the first few were foreign, and I really can't read music. There were a few towards the end that I knew though, so that helped. 

In the never ending game of Who is the Current Favorite Parent, Calvin has decided he does not like walking up for Communion with me. I was trying to settle Frank down, and Hattie wanted to come also. Bad combination. Three wardrobe malfunctions and a bruised leg from running into the corner of a pew later, I am going to have to reassess my ability to carry a toddler and hold the hand of another kid.

The Breakdown:

White Shrug: Target
White tank: Be Maternity, Target
Blue tank: LL Maternity, Target
Gray capris: Old Navy
Pewter flats: Target
Rosary bracelet: A gift from a friend

I am out of practice with these shots! I don't really know if you can wear pewter with gray. I did, and no one told me it looked bad, so I suppose I win. What do you think? Pewter is that color that my husband and I argue over whether or not it is gray or brown. Like a Weimaraner.

This post also serves as a bit of an announcement: we are expecting our fourth (here on earth) child in mid December. The other kids are very excited. Calvin saw the ultrasound photos on the table and we had the following conversation:

Calvin: What baby is that?
Me: It is a new baby.
Calvin: Oh. It is my other sister. What is her name?
Me: Well, we don't know the baby's name yet. We don't know if we are having a boy or a girl baby.
Calvin: It's a girl, but can I name the baby "Icy"?

Here is a link to one of the videos the kids helped make to announce the new addition:

That's it for me. Go check out some better photography and more fashion at Fine Linen and Purple!


  1. Congratulations! I love your children's names. I am not quiet sure that Icy fits in with the sophistication of Calvin, Frank, and Hattie. ;)
    You can wear grey with pewter because grey is a neutral and can be worn successfully with any color you want to pair it with. I love those shoes. I saw them in Target and wanted them, but I refrained. Darn will power!

  2. Congratulations on the newbie! Yay!!! Praying for you!

  3. Congratulations on your sweet baby. Your little guy sounds so cute. Leave it to boys to come up with great names. God bless you and your family.

  4. Congratulations on your new little one! I love your blog and am always so excited when you post!

  5. Congratulations!!! Such wonderful news (and I always love hearing kids reactions to baby news! So often it's so hilariously cute!)!

    I tend to think of pewter as grey, but the color of the Weimaraner as brown... and since I think of pewter as grey I totally think it goes with grey! And you look super cute.

    And I can totally relate to the struggle of carrying a toddler and holding the hand of another kid going up for communion. I'm constantly grabbing my oldest to keep her from bumping into the person in front of her while she's not paying attention, while juggling our middle one in the other arm. It can be the most exhausting part of Mass (that and making sure the three year old doesn't grab the chalice!)!

  6. Thank you , ladies! We are feeling incredibly blessed these days.

    Maybe the problem with this particular shoe, is that the pewter looks brown to me. I bet their descriptor is off. ;)

  7. Congratulations on your littlest blessing! Your kids are too funny. :-) Your outfit is cute (don't you love Target?) and the rosary bracelet is pretty. I recently got one like it, only in lavender. :-)
