Hippity, Hoppity Easter's On It's Way...

It sure would be easy to find me in dark alley.  Just follow the trail of snotty kleenex.  I came down with a cold yesterday morning and it is *totally* kicking my butt.  Bad.  And this morning, my dear KG Layne is showing symptoms.  Complete with the dried crusty booger nose that I swore *my child* would never have.  But she is serious about not wanting me to clean it.  So much so, that she'll throw herself on the floor and scream bloody murder if I try. 

So, I give in.  I let her walk around with the crusty nose knowing that it's on at bath time.  It's me against the nose.  I will win.  I promise you.

Luckily, we're not having to leave the house unless we want to today.  I cancelled her half day at day care so that we didn't share the nasty crusty nose love with her (day care lady's) two boys.  I'm most likely not going to feel up to doing homework today anyway, so I might as well keep my whiney girl with me.  Plus, today is the first day in the 70s since October so we may pack a few boxes of kleenex and head outside to play. 

Despite my sickly state, I was able to find KG's Easter dress.  Last night I could not sleep due to lack of breathing through my nose, so I sat in bed with the ipod touch and shopped for every Easter dress I could find.  Wouldn't you know it, I couldn't find one that I liked better than the first one I found.  So I excitedly woke up my husband (he wasn't nearly as excited) and asked for his opinion.  He agreed that it was perfect, he chose pink and the lamb pattern on the smocking and that was that.  That was easy!  Usually he'll not agree with my choice.  Maybe it was because I woke him to discuss it.  He would have agreed to anything to make me shut up.  :)

So, here it is.  The Easter dress for 2011.

And with help from a Facebook friend, I found the shoes that should match perfectly.  Yes, I am excited.  Very excited.  Can you tell?  For myself, I have no idea what I'm going to wear.  Normally, the way it works for us is that Kin will be perfect head to toe, and mommy is in jeans and a hoodie.  That's life.  Although, this year, I'd like to put some extra effort into it and try to find myself something to wear as well.  If I could drop 5 pounds, I have an outfit that would work.  I wore it to her baptism.  And since I splurged on the Easter dress, I should probably wear something from my closet, right?

So, if you're in love with the dress as much as I am, visit Oodles and Doodles on and tell her that I sent you.  (Disclaimer:  I found this shop by my own searching and am only giving the link love because I love the dress, not for compensation of any sort.)

Easter 2010

The dress will match her Easter Basket perfectly too.  I can't even tell you how excited I am for her to look for eggs this year.  Okay, so I know that she probably won't "hunt" for eggs, but she can run around and pretend to!  And daddy loves to help her (and eat the candy) so I'm sure this will be a fun Easter for us!

I love it!!! She is going to be too cute!! And Parker had his first easter egg hunt Friday (my little cousin wanted to have one for her bday) and he actually hunted! He thought it was so much fun to throw the eggs he found in the basket, so I bet Kinley will too!
