7 Quick Takes

1. I'm ready for Spring Break would be an understatement. Two key words: Spring & BREAK! And it better feel like Spring this break or I'm gonna punch Mother Nature in the face.

2. Despite all my concerns, Joan secured a spot at Annunciation Catholic School for Kindergarten in the fall. And taxes won't be as terrible as we expected. God is good. 

3. It was Dr. Seuss week at Joan's preschool and she was asked to wear a tie. It's probably the cutest she's looked at school all year. 

4. I really miss two people on Facebook: Lisa & Bonnie. Those holy-rollers gave it up for Lent.

5. This is basically what it looks like to be a graphic designer's wife 
(tea-soaking for the beginnings of a  book cover) and mother to little girls (necklace draping for decoration - the occasion? I know not.). 

6. My friend Kaitlin finally had her baby! I'm so excited for them, but she needs to hurry up and post the birth story. amiright?

7. I need a new good book to read - fiction, preferably. And go:

Thanks for hosting Jen!

Love the tie! So glad she got in! I need to write this birth story so I can get it out of my head!

Lisa said...

Joan looks very Seussian, love it! And love her proud smile! E got to dress up for Dr Seuss week too, maybe it'll make an appearance on 7QT

#2 is so great. God is good!

#4 you need to tweet more. i need to tweet more. bonnie needs to tweet a little more than she already does. and instragram -- do you use instagram? I'm not very good at it. do these alternatives negate the FB fast? I say no.

looking forward to another cute outfit/belly pic on Sunday!

#4 - FYI I don't know when I'll be coming back to FB. But you should tweet more, or text me, or call me. I'd love to hear your voice.

I'm so glad Catholic school will work for you guys. I've given the whole moving/Catholic school thing to Mary and every once in awhile I ask Jesus, "Have you guys worked this out? Can you fill me in? Me? I'm not anxious?"

I miss Lisa and Bonnie too!!! Prayers about all things for you guys. Will answer your questions soon, but now I'm headed to the fish fry.

Love and miss you!

#2 - so glad all that worked out! I know how stressful that can be. What a relief!

As for books, I recently read What Alice Forgot and was surprised by how much I liked it.

Thanks for joining in!
