Ok, so techinically Livi did, but OMGOODNESS we're SO excited!!! We never even entertained sending Livi to a Montessori school before about 4 months ago.....and then we went to an open house, asked around, talked to people, did our research, and you know what? I wanted her in one. BAD. The problem? Kids are enrolled from all over Erie County....it's a pretty big playing field for only a handfull or so of spots to fill. So once we submitted her 'application' it was a waiting and praying game. Because we put all of our eggs into this one basket..... And then the letter came.... "To the parents of Olivia Kraus"..... and it sat there..... we ordered food..... it sat there..... we ate dinner.... it sat there..... we cleaned up..... it sat there.... you would have thought that we were waiting for a college acceptance letter to arrive! I was so nervous that I made Mike open it. I mean, what if she didn't get in?? Where would she go? I don't like the Erie schools....I don't like the Millcreek schools....county schools are just too far to drive to and from every day....etc, etc, etc. But... SHE GOT IN! We were stupid little children dancing around the kitchen with the kids and dog just looking at us like we lost our minds....we probably did....it was awesome! And since she got in, Violet can get in no problem. AW.E.SOME! Kindergarten here we come!!!
I am a huge fan of Naartjie. Huge. And I've been patiently awaiting their summer 1 release....and the day is finally here! My husband thinks I'm crazy, as do probably most other people in the world (HA!), but I am beyond clothing obsessed for the girls. And Naartjie in the summer, well, it's beyond ridiculously cute! So move over Gap and Boden! Naartjie is once again taking over! ::insert evil laugh:: ....or more like insanity?? Anyhow.... In case you were wondering...and I'm so sure that you are!.....here are the items I got today since the quantities are already running low! For Livi.... For Violet....
And yes, Livi has 2 in purple....but I didn't say I was done now did I :) I still have a bunch of KK (Kids Kash....kind of the equivalent of Gymbo bucks) that start next week....so that means more Naartjie for us :)
Here in Erie we have our fair share of snow.....but honestly, not really too bad. We usually get pounded, but this year was really mild on us. Yay for that! But we went over to Mom and Dad's this past weekend in Summit.....only 10ish minutes away from us....and jeez! There was a freakin ton of snow! Dad spent the morning moving it around so the kids could have fun outside, and there were piles that were feet higher then our Kia. Crazy! The kids had a ball out there though which is about the only good thing about snow...... Even V came out with us, but she wasn't really too interested in playing around :) And after the kids were fully in the frozen state, we came in to enjoy a very yummy birthday cake and cupcakes (Mike's birthday, yay!) De-lish!
Ok, so here are the rules for this award meme: 1. Thank the person who gave it to you - check. 2. Pass this award on to 15 bloggers you've recently discovered and think are fantastic. 3. Contact the bloggers to let them know they've won. 4. State 7 things about yourself.
So, first 7 things about myself:
* I am terrified of the dark. Like sleep-with-a-nightlight-against-the-wall, afraid. It was always a running joke in my family growing up that my Dad would give me $100.00 if I could walk (no running allowed!) from the house to the barn in the dark. I just can't do it. Here is the distance we are speaking of....pretty far huh? Ssssooooo many things could happen to me while getting there....
* I could eat Chipotle every day for every meal for the rest of my life. No lie. * I have enough heels to wear a different pair every day for a month and a half. And we're talking 7 day weeks here.....
* Fools Rush In is my all time favorite movie. I could watch it for days on end. And the best part? It's now one of Livi's :)
* Snuggling up with my girls and Mike + listening to the rain = the absolutely best thing in the world!
And, well, Paige listed all the blogs that I would list so I really don't have any to add, lol. So if you don't have one, create one! Blogs rule :)
