. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Four

February 5, 2013

Four

scarf: DIY (tutorial here)   cardigan: gift years ago  dress: old navy  boots: kohls

ONE:  It finally looks like winter around here.  Just in time for it to be February and for me to want it to be Spring.  Bummer.  

TWO:  I told my class that I was pregnant yesterday.  One kid suggested I name my child Zorro and another asked "How did you know?"  I avoided both comments.  

THREE:  I will now shop in all sections of a clothing store.  We know I have a few things from the little girls' section and this weekend I was looking in the men's section for Chris and found this $6 shirt for me. 

FOUR:   And most importantly:  Happy birthday to my Mom!  I am well aware that my greatest blessing in life is my family and I couldn't have been luckier with the mom I was given.  I consider her one of my best friends and can rarely go a day without talking to her.  I'm so thankful to have such a wonderful, loving, amazing mom.  I LOVE YOU!!


Happy Wednesday!

hahahahhahaha to #2. I thought your zorro suggestion was hilarious until I continued reading and saw that a different kid asked how you knew. PRICELESS. YAY I love that it's getting more and more real for you as every day passes and how exciting each part is! :) and happy birthday to you Mama!

Haha I love the kids' comments about you being pregnant! I'm sure you will hear many more funnies from your students over the course of your pregnancy. Too cute. And wow that's a lot of snow! It's so pretty, but I totally understand you wanting it to be spring too...I feel the same!

Deirdre said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I LOVE being your mom!! Enough said!

Jen said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love all the porta potties in the background. :)

And I bet you could start shopping in the maternity section, too. :) I love wearing clothes that make me look like I have a cute baby bump!

Casey said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That striped shirt is cute! And Zorro should go on your "maybe" list for names.

Helene said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

haha zorro! and you rock that men's top !

Chrissy + Nate said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Wow, I could not get used to living in snow every day... It was 70 + degrees here today in South Texas! But it does look beautiful :) Aren't kids so silly? If I ever get pregnant, it will be hilarious to see what five and six year olds say to me, if I'm teaching still then! And Happy Birthday to your mama!

Autumn Rosenbaum said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love this outfit! Zorro. Awesome! :) We had THE hardest time coming up with a name for baby #3. The running joke with our small group was that he was going to be Thor. Yeah, No. LOL!
P.S. Happy Birthday Mom. I am impressed by the number of potties in that photo. And I will also run for chocolate. :)

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Happy birthday to your Momma!!!

Guess what I found in my sewing room on the weekend?? Grey and white striped cotton!! You bet I'm gunna attempt that scarf!!!!

Yuck to the snow - I think we have more and it's freezing here!!

Your #2 reminds me of a story about one of my students. Near the end of my pregnancy with my son, this student finally noticed I was pregnant. Once he did he became obsessed with my belly button (which was then an outie and showed through many of my maternity shirts). Every time he saw me, he tried to push it back in. Ahhhhh, memories.

My Thrifty Chic said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love your will run for chocolate sweater, that's totally me! I too shop all sections, I even steal my little brother (who's 14) clothing sometimes :)

CC said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Regarding #2 - just wait till your darling little one starts asking where babies come from. My little dude knows that babies grow in mommies tummies. However he now wants to know how the baby comes out. ..... ummmm. His guess is from my belly button. .... My answer was 'that was a really good guess'. :)

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Question: How did you approach the "I'm pregnant" topic with the kids? I need a way to tell mine I'm leaving them in April.

I adore the outfit.

Zorro! Zorro! Zorro! That's an awesome idea! Oh, and I am so sick of winter too. It's only been snowing here for about 2 and a half weeks, but it's been snowing constantly, and I'm sick of it!

still being [molly] said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

ZORRO!! best name ever. hahahaha and happy birthday to your mama!!!!

Laura @ Chaotic Domestic said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Happy birthday to your mom.
Definitely agree that Zorro should be on the table of possible baby names. :) I wonder what other crazy suggestions your class would come up with.
In that last picture, you're wearing the "will run for chocolate" sweatshirt. Did you do the Godiva Hot Chocolate run? I was going to do their 15K in Denver this October but then it got cancelled.

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Happy Birthday to your mama! Love your blue and white stiped cardi and kids are so funny. My good friend told her 4 year old I had a baby in the belly and she asked "what kind of baby?" Well, hopefully a HUMAN ONE....hahaha

You're mama and I share a birthday! :) Love the mens shirt! I steal my husbands clothes all the time. Love it!!

Rach @ This Italian Family said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Happy birthday to your mom! Also... I think Zorro has potential... ;) I mean, I'm married to the guy who wants to name our first child "Leonidas" regardless of the child's gender. Oh yeah, can't you just see it? My little girl in a tutu with pigtails and a name like Leonidas, ha!

christina said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Meg Cady said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

90% of the time I have to ignore my classroom comments too... yesterdays gems were

1. "are you high miss" (dont worry the principal was in my room)
2. "Are you ever going to get married?"

:)

smk053078 said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Oh boy, I would have avoided that question from students too! LOL! And I wish I could shop in the kids section! happy birthday to you beautiful Momma!

dedivahdeals.com said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

"kids say the darnest things"- too funny. Congratulations and good luck!

Holly said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Those comments from your students are hilarious. I think Zorro is a fine name - your kid won't get made fun of at all *sarcasm*.

How comfy is that shirt you got for $6?! I'm jealous!

Happy birthday to your mama!!

Happy B-day to your mom!

I kind of wish it would look more like winter around here (I live in the SE) - I don't think I'll see snow at all this winter!

readeatcreate.com said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Probably smart to ignore those two comments. Haha. And that sweatshirt looks so cute and cozy. What a steal! I'm totally shopping in the mens section from now on!
