I took full advantage of the mix and match fad at the beach over Easter by putting together my new maternity swimsuit consisting of green bottoms (belonging to a green tankini that obviously will not work at the moment) and a black tube swim top borrowed from my sis covered by a "tankini" top - a $5 microfiber tank from Charlotte Russe purchased solely to be my swim top for the rest of the summer after which it will probably be so stretched out that the trash can will see it next...or the next summer pregnancy. :)
Onto more important things though...I got to see my sister's little girl, Claire, for the first time this Easter weekend. I could not get enough of her. Those cheeks. Those huge, blue eyes. The wispy blonde hair that curls in the back. How she screams loud enough for neighbors a mile away to hear her when she's happy. The way she holds her blankie up to her face and mouth when you put her to sleep in her crib. And best of all, her beaming smile that shows her pearly whites peeking out underneath those rosy lips. How I wish she, my sister, and her hubs lived closer.
