Helloooo out there!

By Moriah on March 30th, 2012

I had big plans to blog this week and then poof! it’s Friday.

I threw my back out yesterday and so I’m in serious survival mode. Thankful Andy has the whole day off and is picking up all the slack. I go back to the chiropractor on Monday and in the meantime have been using ice and advil. And *trying* not to walk too much. (Yeah, right.)

So that’s where we are today. Needing prayer as usual. ;)

one very pink party

By Moriah on March 27th, 2012

A couple of highlights from her party Sunday afternoon…

On Monday (the real day) we picked the kids up from school, grabbed Sonic for lunch, went back to the bouncy place (since Adelaide didn’t get to go when we went Thursday), slushies on the way home – and then mad homework till bath/bedtime. Whew! 5th birthday properly celebrated.

no rest for the weary

HA. Danielle had commented she hoped I got some rest last week. We met friends at the bounce house place Thursday. Definitely not restful. And then Friday I finished the HUGE job of hauling 5 kids’ worth of winter clothes to the attic. Adelaide’s 5th birthday is today, we had a little party for her yesterday afternoon. I’ll get pics up as soon as I have a minute since we’re still in birthday mode here today.

making the rounds

Tuesday was NUTS. But fun!

Went to a different park, played with friends. I haven’t been wearing makeup this week, which is certainly faster for getting out the door. Freeing and scary, all at the same time. (The bottom line is I don’t have the energy to care.)

The babies were sooo cute, sitting all chatty on the blanket.

I’m not sure how I feel about my TWO YEAR OLD being able to do this?

Ate a picnic lunch and climbed trees.

Borrowed toys…

And loved on this doll-baby.

Loving spring.

We flew home for quick naps, met our Tuesday peeps for Chik-Fil-A, ran over to another friend’s house to pick up some stuff and the kids ALL piled out of my van. (That’s when I felt like the old woman that lived in the shoe.) Yeah, we totally descended on her. But she still invited me to sit on her porch and chat while the kids ran in the street played in her yard.

Then we went to Becky’s to drop off her stuff and she had made cookies so of course we had to play there, too. We got home past 9, filthy and needing baths but happy to see SO many friends, all in one day!

Kinda snuck up on me. Our big trip is planned for when school’s out so the goal of this week is to play outside and NOT DO ANY HOMEWORK.


Ethan, not overly excited about the sunshine.

Madeline, completely over-mothering Emily. Funny though.

Big sisters are so convenient for swing-pushing.

Day 1 success.

you’re invited

I’ve loved clothes as long as I can remember.  If you know my mom and grandma, you know I come by it honestly. :)  And if you’ve read this blog any length of time you know I also love particular brands for my kids, and one of them happens to be Matilda Jane.  I often spend my Christmas and birthday money on MJC – for me and for the girls.  They are my favorite, hands down. Unique, fun, wash amazingly well and worth every penny.

Believe it or not, I’ve never hosted a trunk show before but, for this final release of Spring 2012 I am co-hosting a show.  If you are local, you are welcome to come see everything in person AND it will also be virtual – anyone can order through our show.  It will be flat $4 trunk shipping to us and Amy and I will ship priority to you for free. You need to email me for tax information. ;)  (It’s good!)

Basically the new pieces will be released on Matilda Jane’s website on April 1st; you will fill up your wishlist on their site and email it to me (moriah@pleasepassthesalt.net) AND my trunk keeper (bethanih@matildajaneclothing.com). Put in the notes section that it’s for Moriah and Amy’s show and how you would like to pay (credit/debit card or paypal).  You can put your phone number if you’d rather Bethani call you for your payment information.

Two Serendipity collections have already been released; you can shop from them as well as the older lines still available on their website. The new stuff just won’t be available for purchase until those photos are up.

Hope to have you shop with us! I will be available for questions or anything you need while the show is open, feel free to shoot me an email.  You will get a confirmation email/receipt once the show closes (most likely on April 3rd).  If you are going to order please do it quickly; the cutest pieces typically sell out within the first few hours.

And even if you don’t have little girls to dress, make sure you check out their women’s line!

adelaide girl

Adelaide went to a birthday party last Friday and has another one this weekend. She and I were chatting in the kitchen the other day about all things pink and party related. She’s fully aware her own birthday is coming up soon. I had my camera nearby and snapped away. Her chats are always hilarious.

She still is the funniest little pixie girl, as black-and-white as they come. She doesn’t even know HOW to beat around the bush and will declare stark reality without so much as batting an eyelash. (My neighbor finally had to tell her she wasn’t allowed to comment on how messy her car is on the way up to preschool. ha) If you want an honest answer, she’s the perfect girl to ask.

reading (and watching!)

By Moriah on March 12th, 2012

Rebecca asked what I’m reading these days, the answer is Peace Like a River by Lief Enger. I’m loving it. It was recommended to me by Danielle and Vangie – I picked up Vangie’s copy when I was at her house a coupla weeks ago.

She also gave me Sisters, which I’m going to read next. And while I’m advertising great stories, if you haven’t been exposed to Downton Abbey YOU ARE MISSING OUT. Drama at it’s FINEST. Andy and I have stayed up laaaaaaaate, watching it over and over again. Both Seasons 1 and 2 are fully available (don’t miss the Christmas special at the end of Season 2).
