Running on empty
Jennifer S said…
Your girls are adorable, and very pink. I like it.
Liv said…
fantastic! i'm so glad you got a rest.
Kyla said…
Gorgeous girls. I hope you enjoyed the break!(which if it was as busy for you as it was for me, wasn't really any sort of break! LOL)
Kat said…
Now that looks like a great spring break!
alejna said…
So, in other words, this time you're not using your words?

It looks like a grand time. I love that last shot of your girls in their pink finery and cool shades
Yolanda said…
I'm just crazy about that last photo. i love that they are in the same dress, but when you look at the sweaters, the shades, and the shoes--and their expressions--you can so tell that one is indeed Patience, and the other Persistence.

and warmth....what's THAT like?!?!
Karen Jensen said…
What a great weekend! I must say that the last picture is my favorite.

That pic of the girls being all girlie with their shades on is breaking my heart in two.

It's funny, I was thinking to myself yesterday that there are places in this world where people can have outdoor egg hunts. How grand it would be to have an outdoor egg hunt...and there you have offered proof of its grandness.
Oh, I LOVE those dresses, they're adorable!!!

Oh man, were your fingers BURNING to type? lol how on earth did you do it? Your girls are so cute.
ALM said…
Your girls are So cute! I love the dresses... makes me want to dress my boys in girls' clothes even more!!
Gwen said…
Julie, you really didn't use any words! I am shocked and impressed! lol.

I love Pers's pants/shorts (or is that a skirt-like item) ensemble. I have a daughter who wears such things regularly, since we still have snow on the ground here but the siren song of spring clothing is a strong one.

But you guys? have actual spring flowers! And gorgeous Easter fairies to pose in front of them!
Lovely! And those shades -- too cute!

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Quorum

After being confronted with written evidence, Julie admits that she is a total attention whore. In some things, in some ways, sometimes I look outward for validation of my worth and existence. I admit it. It's my weak spot, my vanity spot . If you say I am clever, comment on a post, offer me an award, mention me on your blog, reply to a comment I left on your blog, or in any way flatter me as a writer...I am hopelessly, slavishly devoted to you. I will probably even add you to my blogroll just so everyone can see the list of all the cool kids who actually like me . The girl, she knows she is vain in this regard , but after much vanity discussion and navel-gazing , she has decided to love herself anyway, as she is (ironically) and will keep searching for (1) internal validation and (2) her first person . Until I reach a better point of self-actualization, though, may I just say that this week you people have been better than prozac and chocolate (together, with a side of whi

Is your name yours? How your name affects your success...

Made by Andrea Micheloni Not too long ago I read What's in a name? by Veronica Mitchell. She'd read the NPR/USA Today article, Blame it on your name , that shared new research results: "a preference for our own names and initials — the 'name-letter effect' — can have some negative consequences." Veronica's post and that article got me thinking about names, and their importance. Changing to my husband’s name and shedding my maiden name was no love lost for me. By the time we married, I’d have gladly married any other name just for a change. My maiden name was a trial; I was sick of spelling it, pronouncing it, explaining it, and dealing with the thoughtless rude comments about it. My sister and I dreamed and planned for the day we could shed that name. So I wonder, sometimes, whether I adequately considered what a name change would actually mean. Heritage and genealogy matter to me and my maiden name reflected a great deal of familial history. Histo

What you really need to tell teens about sexual assault

The Steubenville Ohio rape case  highlighted a huge ugly disturbing gap in our society about rape. Internet outrage erupted about the "drunk girl" and "getting what was deserved." There was a lot of nasty commentary about all the things women and girls need to do to not get raped (as if rape and rapists are completely fair and only go after the deserving). People commented in typical "blame the victim" ways , shamefully and appallingly. It made me fear for humanity. Maybe, possibly, worst of all, major news network CNN reported the case from a distressingly sympathetic view for...the convicted rapists . Reporters Poppy Harlow and Candy Crowley evinced grief about the convicted rapists' lost bright futures. As the brilliant Gawker piece by Mallory Ortberg said: People who commit acts of sexual violence (rape, for example) and are convicted in a court of law are required to register with the national sex offender public registry, so that future
