I had to take the kids (ages 5, 2, &1) to church BY MYSELF this weekend TWICE. I can't believe I survived.
Yesterday, the kids were very well behaved & well rewarded after mass with some yummy pancakes. Today, their behavior almost resulted in a Mommy reward (like a stop at the liquor store), but I kept my cool (mostly), drank some coffee, and I'm finally feeling better.
I wish, wish, wish my husband had been with me this weekend because our church has the most beautiful display I have ever seen honoring Our Lady. There is a HUGE Our Lady of Guadalupe print hanging, and it is surrounded by roses (floor to ceiling). As we approached the altar yesterday (and came closer to the display honoring Our Lady), my two older kids and I were just speechless at how beautiful the display was. It's that beautiful, and I promise to go back to church and snap some pictures of it to post later this week. Stunning.
Onto my outfit. I am attempting to winterize a summer dress by pairing it with tights, boots, and a cardigan. It's getting chilly here.
You won't get any head on shots of me this week. I'm not trying to be artsy. My face is totally broken out, and I don't want any reminders of what my skin looked like this week. Ugh.
