Artsy Day

I always like to think I am the sort of person who hangs out at art galleries on Sunday afternoons. When Layla had an art award show at a local gallery, I couldn't help but be excited to be one of those people. There was an air of sophistication as I made the girls change out of their usual Sunday sweats...then talked Liv out of a neon pink halter dress that was five times too big on her. Every time I tell the girls to get dressed up, Olivia goes for the same pink dress and every time I tell her to go change. There Is a formality about an afternoon of viewing art, even children's art. In the presence of talent and expression, I always feel that proper manners and respect is necessary. The girls we're warned to be on "grown up behavior". Of course I got an afternoon of Liv asking "what are we going to do next? When do we get cookies?"

I bought this new maxi dress from Anthropologie the first day of my new job. Putting it on, I still wasn't sure if I liked it. "Do I look fat?" I asked Josh. "you look beautiful" he would answer. Being married almost ten years I never can tell if it is a sincere "you look beautiful" or a "I am going to tell you that you look beautiful so that we can get moving". After his groan when I asked him if I had lumpy belly under the sheer fabric, he gave me a look that made me assume it was time to go and I needed to find shoes and get in the car. It took a couple scarves and a chunky cardi to hide the lumps. Looking at the pics, I am glad I bought the dress. This is my first ever mobile post. I need to blog to stay normal. Thanks to all my readers aka therapists out there. The formatting may not be perfect...but together we will make it thought these unconnected times.
