Today’s featured blogger is Mariah from Like Honey! Mariah loves to blog about family and fashion, and she’s my go-to girl for super cute, comfy but fashionable outfits. She’s also a GREAT decorator. If you haven’t seen her daughter’s big girl room reveal, you have to see that awesome tropical-themed room! Go over and say hi!
Well, this week was wild, right? I thought I would share my five favorite pics from the week.
2. Sunday night we went to the Ballet! A local dance theater was putting on a show featuring various stories, including Elizabeth’s favorite Fancy Nancy! After the show, the dances came to the lobby so you could meet them. Elizabeth tackled this girl with a big hug and was just so thrilled to meet the “real” Fancy Nancy! Elizabeth also adored the ballet too. She sat perfectly still, watching. And when it was clapping time, there were no polite golf claps with this girl. It was full on slap clapping, with enthusiasm! I’ll always just cherish that day. What sweet memories!
3. I’m a politics junkie, so clearly this has been my year to be all absorbed. We decided to make the most of election night by doing a little themed decorating. Elizabeth forgot that it was an Election Day party and instead declared it a suuupwise party for Daddy. We actually didn’t start decorating until he texted saying he was on his way home! But when he walked in the door, Elizabeth yelled “Suuupwise DADDY! It’s Election Day!” HAHA!
4. I did stay up (technically) all night on Tuesday. To make it more entertaining for myself, I printed off a blank US map to color in. Based on when I dozed off it was before Wisconsin or Pennsylvania was called…. so I stayed up SUPER late and missed all the critical announcements. Oh well… But Wednesday morning it was all coffee, all day….
5. This little guy. As I type this he’s awake, in his bed, just gabbing away. He’s a keeper. And Elizabeth is such a sweet girl. I love hearing her questions, asking William if he would like a toy, or declaring “I need a sna-ack!” in her little Southern drawl (that she picked up somewhere….). Some days it’s hard to be a parent. But some days it’s a joy. And usually it’s the joyous days that stick in your memory.
What was your highlight from the week? Can’t wait to hear about it!
