Treading Water.

I am barely keeping my head above water right now. There's just a lot going on. I've been a neglectful friend,{sorry!} failing to reply to messages or return phone calls, and yesterday, though my list in my notebook said we were going to finalize some school shopping and get some things at home organized, I, at the last minute asked M to pack lunches and quickly packed up and headed to the Children's Museum with M and my littles. {T was at a friends.}

It was one of my better moments of motherhood. Really, somedays, you just have to get stuff done, I know this and I do this when I can. But there are other days where I know that 4 p.m. is going to roll around and I'm just going to wonder where the day went and realize we could have spent it better.

This is what a day well spent looks like.

Yesterday was that. We needed a last minute let's go to the museum and play-day.

Even if it meant spending the evening at the coffee shop working on things I needed to get done.
Details and such:

I just got registered for the Hearts at Home conference in Rochester this November. It's a conference for Christian moms and there are sessions ranging in topic from parenting to marriage to personal growth. I'm really excited to be going with a friend of mine from college but there is always room for more. Are you going? For more information, go here. And let me know if you're going too.

If you're a North Park University alumni in Minnesota, there's an alumni event J and I are going to next month at the News Room. You can see details here and let me know if you're coming.  And yes, while I actually graduated from the University of MN, I'm still considered and participate as a North Park alum.

It's not too late to register for the Breath of Hope Lung Cancer 5K next month either but if you want a shirt get registered soon. For more info, go here.

I'm in need of a local family who are attending the state fair for the first time this year OR a family who loves it and has tons of traditions around it. By local I mean St. Michael Patch local. Send me a message if you are or know a family that would work well.

Finally, I need a little fashion help. This weekend M and I are attending a wedding shower for my nephew's fiance', we also have both his wedding and my cousins wedding coming up soon. The trouble I'm having is finding dresses for M. To some extent I have accepted the fashions at Justice and Aeropostale, however most of their clothing is either over the top glitter, lace and sparkles or too casual for a wedding shower and weddings. Does anyone know where I can get a teeny-bopper some cute, age appropriate dresses that aren't too young but also aren't too teeny-bopper-ish? I tried JCPenney's last night and was pretty disappointed. Anyone?

Happy Wednesday, friends!

What a great spur of the moment idea! I love the Children's museum and haven't been there in awhile, but an excellent way to spend the day!

I'm an adult, but I always find super cute dresses at Gap or Old Navy.

My niece always finds cute things at Francesca's in Arbor Lakes. I think it's pretty reasonably priced too!
