What I Wore Sunday!

I DID IT. Linking up with the ladies of Fine Linen And Purple, I present: What I Wore Sunday!



Ignore my left alien hand doing the robot. Please excuse my sweet critter trying to flash you my "baby button". I think I confused him a bit with the whole 'baby is in mommy's belly/mommy also has a bellybutton'.

My technicolor dreamoutfit is composed of...
Snood: Target from ten years ago.
Shirt: Gift from me madre, Kohl's Maternity, I believe?
Materni-pants: Old Navy Maternity.
Shoes: Gift from my beffy 5 years ago.
Korban's Outfit: Carters and Car Slippers.



I didn't think twice before wearing heels to my first day in the Preschool room of our children's ministry, but let me tell you, I'm thinking twice for next time. Those chairs are SHORT. Those tables are TINY. My whole body self is NOT. I looked like a spider squatting and crab walking all over that room today. Gangliness aside, today was a REAL blast! I honestly LOVE the whole 2-4 year old age, and if I ever had to go back to work before my kids were in school, I think it'd be at a nursery school or something, cuz today was just FUN. Side-note, shoutout to my Shearer's, I cannot get enough of your kid.

In other church news, we had our first service in our new renovated building today. It was beautiful. We expanded our crowded main hall into a glass atrium, and you can pretty much guarantee if I'm not somewhere I should be, it's because I'm photosynthesizing somewhere in that atrium. Seriously. I have chloroplasts in my retinas that take the place of all the rods and cones I'm missing, and I NEED sunlight for a certain number of hours a day. If you're looking for me, you know where to start. If I'm not there, check the loo, where I'm sure to be peeing for the billionth time that day (thank you, baby.)

While absorbing my precious, precious Vitamin D, I spotted a woman wearing a headscarf tied just enough to make me think it was intentional as a headcovering, and like the weirdo I am, I had to see if we were, in fact, sisters of the 1 Corinthians 11 variety. It turns out that she had noticed MY snood in service and had bet I was wearing it as a headcovering! - I tell you, we can spot each other a mile away. I was SO excited to make a new friend that I did the running man, even in those heels. Unfortunately, she goes to church in another state, but my day was certainly made either way! It's the little things, I tell you. Also, she wears the tichel, which I've never tried, so now I have a fun new thing to learn.  I have a future blog post on the docket about how and why I decided to wear the headcovering, but aside from the doctrinal reasons, it has become my favorite thing to put on on a Sunday. It is just so feminine and beautiful in a way that has nothing to do with the fabric or aesthetics of it... I can't quite put it into words, but I just love being a woman, and I love that God gave women the gift of femininity.

Welp, I hope your Sunday was full of peace, gladness, and joy!
Much love,
Chelsea

  2. Has his worn to shreds?? We've had them barely a month and they're splitting at the seams lol!! I can't decide if it's because of how they were made, or because of my excellent parenting in allowing him to wear them outside ;) Thanks about the snood! The running man was quite a sight to behold, except for maybe by the stranger-turned-new-friend, who may have thought me a bit strange. Anyway, thanks!!
