Oh, what style.

I had a great chat with my BFF yesterday about remembering why we started blogging in the first place (sharing our stories), which gave me a great idea for my post today (to share my story- or in today's case, Dan's).  Typically I have been talking fashion on Wednesdays (which I love, when I'm feeling fancy), but realistically, I haven't been feeling too fashiony (and more cozy instead). I think it mostly has to do with the fact that I spend my whole day in my winter boots, giant warm jacket or gym clothes (and mostly sweaty because of all the layers or a recent workout).  On top of that, I don't like taking pictures outside (ugh, so many layers to take off) when I can't feel my face (it's cold winter again)...so you can see maybe why I haven't been feeling the fashion thing. (Don't get me wrong, I LOVE looking).

I was browsing the mall yesterday for some things for my husband (who has a very....special....fashion sense) and I (accidentally) found this hoodie, a tank top and a sports bra- which is quite possibly the comfiest sports bra I have ever worn (an amazing feat for someone with big girls).  So I do like style, but I spend a lot of time in my gym clothes, so sometimes it's fun to concentrate on that.

Also, I've been getting in a lot of great time with my kids.  Like not feeling rushed, able to enjoy their reading/homework and after school routines time.  I feel so lucky to be able to spend my time with these little monkeys and they are growing up much to quickly.  Take a look at little Lucia.  The girl who didn't grow.  But now who does and is in the 50th percentile.  The little grade one cutie who can fluently speak two languages and read in both as well.  It amazes me everyday how quickly she is picking up on things. But also how grown up she is looking.


Part of the 'she's growing' thing is that she needs new clothes constantly.  Actually- Willis seems to be in the same boat too, so they've both got a little refresher.  This was by far my favourite outfit we picked out at Old Navy for her...she looks like a little Mademoiselle!



And she usually acts like a little Mlle. also: she likes to take charges and doesn't like people telling her she can't do something.  I'll leave you with a cute story Dan wanted to share.

Dan: Lucia - do you want an easy or a hard word to spell?

Lucy: A medium one.

Dan: Ok.  Spell KNIFE

Lucy: N.  I.  F.

Dan: <silence>

Lucy: E

Dan: Close.  That's a tricky one because there's a K in the front

Lucy: Yeah - but you don't say it

Dan: Right.  You don't pronounce it because it's silent

Lucy: 



They grow up so quickly don't they?

  3. That little jacket on Lucia is SO sweet. My oldest is growing like a weed too. She always has hardly any clothes and her sister has ALL the clothes by the time the hand me downs come along from cousins and such. I spend a lot of time in gym clothes too and I am okay with that.

  5. Glad I was inspiring :) Lucia looks like a doll in that blazer, did you buy a matching one?

  6. haha! I think I've had that same exact conversation with Baby Fox before, when they were learning that the e on the end of a word makes the vowel sound long, so when we asked him to spell something he would not say the e because it was silent, kids are so funny, and way more logical.

  7. Oh how I miss cozy clothes some days, but then today I'm wearing leggings, a tunic, and converse, so it's basically street legal PJs. Love hearing how kids think!
