Tiered Denim Skirt And Peasant Blouse

Hi everyone! Who's excited that March is finally here? This week marks our first week of gardening season for us, Whoohoo! I love getting my hands dirty doing this then at the end of the season you see that that bit of soil under your nails that drove you crazy was well worth it, and then the hours spent in the steamy hot kitchen as we can it as a family. It's one of my favorite things about summer.

Another thing I am still getting use to is Lil' Britches's morning routine. Early to rise, wake everyone that is still trying to sleep for a few moments longer, than its off to "EAT" and whoever is still really wanting sleep pulls the covers over there head and tries to either sleep or just straight pretends to be. As soon as Lil' Britches feet again touch the floor it's for the purpose of getting people out of bed... (this is the point where the very brave of us stay in bed but the rest are bolting out of it) And once every one is out of bed its time to PLAY! While the rest of us try cold water or coffee to wake us up (which by the way my sister makes some killer coffee and potatoes but that is a different story).

Today we are iced in and my dad had to stay home. Can I say that I am glad and not sound awful?  We miss  him so much and he has been so busy working.  By the way, can you sled on ice? But it was a lot of fun to be able to Skype with my Africa living friends again today! Anyway that's my week... peppered with groceries trips, chores, planning of meals, sewing, school, and a few other things. Oh and the baby was born this morning at 1 A.M.!!!!!! Yes I know, don't decorate with exclamation points, but I am excited about this one. The phone was ringing off the hook this morning! We all jump when we hear it and then... it's the hospital telling us we will be picking him up by the end of the week.  Please pray for him and his momma.  It would mean so much to her, and us.

This week I am wearing a Blue Jean Skirt, Brown Camisol, Brown and Cream Lace Tank, Brown Sweater, Brown Scarf, Black Rubber Boots.
