I think they needed a break. Having multiple ice days and late starts at school was no consolation to their need for a break. However, I'm a little bummed that Easter is so late this year... That means our next break is still a long way aways.
Over the weekend, I brought the girls out to buy a dress. Randy's brother is getting married in early May and I wanted to get them a dress as soon as the new Spring dresses hit the stores. So, Kyla is basically a stick with legs up to her neck so finding a dress that fit her in all manners of speaking - length and bodice was no easy feat. In fact, when we found a dress that fit her in the bodice, I pretty much decided that we were done with her. And truth be told, it's a cute little dress and she will be beautiful in it. That is, if she can keep her shins and knees from getting banged up between now and the wedding.
Elisan was a bit more picky about her dress. The first problem is that she is 12 and in 7th grade and doesn't want to shop in the girls' section any more. She wants to shop in the juniors section. Unfortunately, she's just a wee bit small to fit into most of the jrs. clothes. Thankfully, after trying on... oh, I don't know 20 dresses, she found the dress she wanted. (A word to the wise... take pictures of them in every dress they try on so they can remember what they loved and didn't love about each one! That's my TIP of the day!)
The picture doesn't do this dresses justice but I did want to show you what we ended up with!
In case you're wondering... and I know you are... YES, I'm still counting calories and I'm still working out like a crazy woman. And, YAY ME, I'm really beginning to notice changes in my arms, shoulders, butt and legs. FINALLY. This 40-something business is cramping my workout time-line. I was hoping for these results in February... NOT March. But, it's all good. I'm just glad my body is still capable to lift weights and run. 40-something isn't all that bad.
In honor of Spring Break, I've begun advertising for my SPRING MINI-SESSIONS! I'm so excited about offering these mini-sessions!
If you want to book a spot, mention that you saw it on my Haphazard Happenstances blog and I'll take $10.00 off the session... making it only $65.00! For more specific details, click on over to my photography website.
I'm off to my craft room to sew my little heart out. I'm working on some super cute bunting to use in my spring photography sessions. I'll be sure to post pictures of it when it's complete!
Happy Spring Break, y'all!
