I just want you all to know that while I am writing this I am also watching an episode of "The Cosby Show." (I almost wrote "a rerun of" but that's stupid to say about a show that's been off the air for 20 years.) It's the one where Cliff puts on all his Father's Day presents at once - the light up suspenders, the visor, the giant tie... still funny. It needs to be said that my husband is not yet home from work - for some reason he just does not see the value in watching TV shows from the 80s. Sometimes I wonder why I married him.
Here we have my saggy diaper butt pants again. I washed and dried them on HOT (I figured even if I ruined them - they're supposed to be dry cleaned - it wouldn't be a big deal since they only set me back $20) and when they came out of the dryer they were so wrinkled I couldn't even salvage them with a hot iron. So back in the wash again they went, this time on the sanitize cycle with a bunch of towels - the cycle wherein the water heats up to 180 degrees - and then I laid them out to dry. They're still saggy diaper butt-y. Maybe THAT is why they ended up at the clearance center! I haven't worn my "vibrant flame" pair yet; I wonder if they'll fit the same. Oh well.
(Ohmigosh Clair Huxtable is wearing a GORGEOUS floor-length violet wool coat in this scene that I would die to have right now.)
This morning I attended a Mother's Day Tea* put on by the first grade at my son's school. First of all, when the moms walked in, each kid had a "corsage" they had made with a coffee filter and markers that they put on their mom's wrist. Then his teacher explained that she had each child write and illustrate a "book" about their moms - what they looked like, what they liked about them, etc. There were two chairs set up in front of the room and the children and their mothers took turns with each child reading their book to their mother. Then they sang a song to us. I am telling you, the TEARS. Even the teacher was crying! It was the cutest thing I have ever been a part of, seriously. I also enjoyed how in my book, my kid made sure to mention that he liked when I wore pretty dresses and high heels! The accompanying picture showed me in a purple dress and pink heels - totally a look I will have to recreate in the future. Anyway. I felt my neon azalea Tippi sweater and fun "goes with everything" Target necklace were just right for the occasion. Naturally I had to throw on my new favorite floral flats! I love them so much. I admired them on myself all day which is really kind of ridiculous.
(Okay, now Clair is wearing an electric blue silk wrap dress. I'm dying. It is straight-up bizarre that I am coveting a ficticious character's wardrobe from 1985 right now. But it is what it is.)
I hope everyone has a great weekend! We're not doing anything major Sunday - just eating over at my parents' house; my dad wants to grill out. He instructed me to bring dessert - any ideas?
*There was no actual tea at this Mother's Day Tea. There was cake though. And Kool-aid. At 9:30am! I am totally cool with that. Not the first time in my life I have had cake for breakfast.
