It needs to either be spring or not be spring. Because seriously? This whole "hey it's spring, woo hoo, oh wait 10 inches of snow, wah wah wahhh" thing is NOT OKAY. I know I probably brought it upon myself when I rushed off to the store and bought a whole stack of planters and started planning where I'd put the planters and what I'd plant in the planters and how maybe I needed a few more planters ... then BAM, weather guy all up in my business yakking on about snow and treacherous driving. So one week we put up a spring wreath and scamper all over the yard in sweatshirts....
...and the next week it's back to Uggs and snowsuits. (Ha. Like I ever took my Uggs off. Psyche!)
I mean, I should have known better. I'm a native midwesterner, this is par for the springtime course. My birthday is April 1st, and I've got birthday pictures where I'm wearing a springy side ponytail and shorts (shorts that coordinate really super well with my Esprit bag, natch) and I've got birthday pictures where I'm all snowsuited and pasty looking. It's looking like a snowsuited pasty birthday might be on tap. Joy. Because I didn't have enough reasons to dread my birthday. (THIRTY reasons, in fact. Three. Oh.)
It's a good thing we've got a SoCal trip planned for early April. Surely, there, it will be sunny and plants will be growing and nobody will be pasty. Except me, obvi, but a day or two in the sun should help take the edge off the paste. I'll probably skip the shorts and the side pony, though. I'm (almost) 30, you know. (OMG.)
Anyway, boo for the spring fake-out. Want to see something funny, though? This picture was intended as a picture of George W. staring longingly outside, but I ended up catching Vivi in the sneak-walking act. She likes to pretend she can't walk (because why walk when someone will carry you, duh), but when she thinks no one is watching she's all "la, la, walk walk walk". Sneaky, V.
(Don't ask what V's wearing in those pictures. Because she's wearing pajamas and boy shoes and a boy sweatshirt, hand-me-down style. Because she doesn't have shorts or an Esprit bag or hair for a side ponytail, that's why.)
