A sweet day with my little family.
Pippa woke up first. Got us all up. And then Kevin whipped up a delicious breakfast before church.
Kevin shot down my suggestion to have fro-yo for lunch so we went with Park Burger – an old fave.
I kept it green… my burger was on greens + jalapeños and guacamole!
It was actually quite warm today so it got a bit toasty in my plaid!
I know I should teach Pippa not to jump on me like that… but I just love it. She can almost paw her way up to my face!
We also got some important business taken care of…
We bought our tickets to see Sleeping Beauty!
I liked the Colorado Ballet Facebook page and found out they were offering a 20% discount on evening performance through October 1! Discount code: BEAUTY — if you’re interested in going. Which you totally should! I know. I’m totally blessed that Kevin is a great sport about things like this, but feel free to use him as an example. Haha. I’d already been prepping him by secretly playing the music here and there.
Speaking of music — here’s an embarrassing 21-second video of me practicing piano with Pippa Cordelia in my lap! Kevin managed to catch it on his iPad. My playing sounds so poundy — it’s a little abrasive! So ignore that, turn the volume down, etc. I’ll play you something I do better (Beethoven! Schubert! Rachmaninov!) someday, but lately I’ve been addicted to practicing the Italian Concerto (Bach). Kevin can even hum it — although the counterpoint gets a bit dicey!
And that’s why I lock the dogs up while I’m teaching piano. They spent the rest of the time tussling behind me!
If only Pippa could turn pages…
Off to shop for a dress for the ballet (online of course — what else is there?!)! Any suggestions? The more frou-frou the merrier!!
I like this one from Madewell, but probably not enough ruffles. Or bows. Or pink! I feel that my piano studio profits may be going back to red again! Haha.
Where’s your favorite place to shop for dresses? I love J.Crew & Banana Republic for work dresses. I also like to look at Ruche. Sometimes ModCloth. I also like ASOS which is where I’ve got the bow dress and the ice cream cone dress.
What’s your favorite style of dress? I love ruffles & bows (obviously), knee-length, definitely sleeveless. Mostly because my burpee muscles don’t cooperate well with sleeves (that dress above is probably out – lol). NO BLACK. Unless I’m being the teacher. Then… ALL BLACK!
What should Kevin wear? A bow tie, right? Blazer with elbow patches! I know we don’t HAVE to dress up, but it’s fun! Don’t be boring. I’m still depressed for you guys that you nixed loafers with tassels!
