This is my 'I've got playcentre, followed by brief home time followed by basketball, and get home at 5' ensemble...hehe - in other words it a 'mom' outfit...comfortable, warm and patterned for the paint splodges inevitably put on it, snot wiped and general grime - nice.
righto: cardi - Sara lable, true score as a girlfriend found it for me in the local oppy - its lambswool and I love the swing style to it. (it hides a few lumps YUS!)
singlet - totally my OLD feeding singlet ...but I like the length so keep wearing it.
jeans - opshop find and in my fav wildchild label (a.k.a redwood tree legs jeans)
brooch - found on FELT and I love it times a million!
casual sneakers - the warehouse...LOVE these and are super sad they are falling apart - but will wear them to the bitter end.
leave you link if you are playing so I can check YOU out ...have an AWESOME day. xx

my uncle passed away this week... I know he was very respected and cared for in his church and school community...that his sons and wife are loyal and true to him....I wish he didn't have to go, but know it was a relief from suffering...he leaves a legacy of loyalty, truth and care....I know that his faith was strong, and believe I will meet him again one day when its my turn. Sorrow makes you think about your own mortality and what will happen to you and yours...its my heartfelt prayer and plea that my own children will follow the narrow path of life...that they will accept the gift of salvation as theirs; following their great uncle, my uncle when their own time comes...as do I for myself.... we all have a choice = I choose life.
my kids and I have often played the 'I love you game' over the years, but right now its my 3rd baby whose really into it...and he comes up with some really funny ones....it goes like this:
Me: I love you more than the stars in the sky....

while checking out the net the other night I came across a picture of a sock icepack...and thought - 'what a great idea!'(can't remember where sorry)...little did I know that idea was about to come into practice IMMEDIATELY!
the biggest girl likes to play soccer and play it HARD, (think bulldozer) and came home Thursday with a suspected light concussion and shoulder injury....healed from that (according to dr) and played on Saturday...where she rolled her ankle lightly spraining it - seriously, I wish she would take up knitting!...so anyho, what you do is:
