March 1st and St. Patrick’s Day

Today is the 1st day of March and it is a busy month for Angry Julie.  The daughter of my best friend is turning SIX, and she is having a celebration.  On the 17th, it is St. Patrick’s Day and the elementary school jogathon.  I’m going to be the jogathon chair next year, so I have to pay extra special attention to what is going on that day.  You know me, just trying to play SuperMom.

On the 19th, a life long friend is getting married in beautiful Malibu.  I’m a bridesmaid in the wedding, and Angry Kid is the ring bearer.  He doesn’t quite understand the concept of carrying a pillow.  My mom and I took Angry Kid to the mall last week to look for suits.  It was not fun looking for a suit in a size 5/6 in charcoal gray, but we found one.  I took a picture to send to the future bride for approval.  He just looks so adorable in the suit. All he needs is a pair of sunglasses to complete his look.

I’m still waiting to get my dress, and it is very close to the wedding.  I have to get it altered and figure out my shoe situation.  I am also looking for some kind of sweater or wrap to wear with it.  I’m not impressed with my arms, and their fat.

And since I am trying to be a bit more creative, I thought I would share some fun things I found on the blogs for St. Patrick’s Day!

He looks adorable! & I agree 5/6 is a hard size to find for anything (just waiting for a growth spurt) All but one of the weddings where there has been a ring bearer the pillow had a strap or pocket on the bottom so the ring bearer could put his hand in & technically not have to hold the pillow (& the ONE wedding that didn't the groom fashioned one out of duct tape!! LOL)

Wow! You do have a busy month. Angry Kid looks so cute. Does he love his suit or hate it. When my son was little he used to think he looked great in a suit and always loved it, now at 9 not so much. thanks for the St. Patrick's Day links!

Angry Kid looks adorable. Muffin top was one thing. Today I heard a new term. Batwings - in reference to upper arms. Ugh. Another reason to wave like the Queen! Think delicate shoulder wrap :)
