Welcome to High Five for Friday – hosted by me, BeckyTif, and Della! Come, read up on what we’ve been up to this week and get to know some amazing bloggers down below!

Who had a great week??? I did! Let’s dive in.

1. Our weekend was SO busy! We had a full day at church on Saturday, and then a few events on Sunday. On Sunday morning, I took Elizabeth over to her preschool’s church for their Easter concert. It was so lovely! Our church service is contemporary, so it was delightful taking Elizabeth to a more traditional service. It made my heart so happy hearing the organ, singing good hymns. Guys – I left with such joy!

Sunday afternoon we met some friends at the North Carolina Museum of Art. I haven’t been through their outdoor area, but it was such fun. We found a sunny spot, had some food, and let the kids run around! Elizabeth spent a good chunk of the time doing her favorite activity – picking wild flowers!

2. Because we had such a busy weekend, I didn’t get a chance to head out for a day of shopping for my capsule wardrobe like I had hoped. I mentioned last week that I was looking forward to a day of trying on clothes… but alas, it didn’t get done. But I did make an online purchase! I ordered a few things from Everlane. I hadn’t heard of the brand before, but thanks to watching a few capsule wardrobe YouTubers, I was instantly intrigued by the brand’s reputation for high quality basic pieces at an affordable price point. I decided to order a few different tee shirt and button down styles just to see what suits me. I can always return if I don’t like it! I’m also VERY intrigued by their Trench Coat and a few of their shoes.

3. Elizabeth had her half birthday on Tuesday! When you’re little, why not celebrate the half birthday?? It was a day full of her favorite things. We went to Krispy Kreme for a birthday donut. We hunted for just the right books at the library. We had dinner at her favorite place!

And then we surprised her with a bit of an extravagant gift for a half birthday. She got a bike!

Here’s the reason. This kiddo asked for a bike at Christmas time. I wrote it off at the time because she had a few friends that got bikes and I just assumed it was top of mind… but she didn’t actually WANT one. A few weeks ago, though, my husband told me that she spontaneously said that she was sad she didn’t have a bike. She also said she asked Santa for a bike, and didn’t get one. So maybe he’ll bring her one NEXT Christmas. Ugh! Such a heart string tug!! So we both buckled instantly! We surprised her and took her to the bike shop. She got a bike that was a touch too big for her right now, but in a few months, it will be the perfect fit.

Her steering does need some work though.

4. William has been pushing things around, walking, for a week now! Yesterday we were shocked at how quick he was! I think he’ll be walking by his birthday next month. He also has been eating anything you put in front of him. It cracks me up.

5. What are you doing for Easter?? We are headed up to my in-laws tomorrow morning. Later today though we are headed back over to Elizabeth’s preschool’s church for their Stations of the Cross. We haven’t done that before, but apparently it is very hands on. So I think Elizabeth will really love it. She surprises me with how much she has absorbed this Easter season.

But since today is Good Friday, I plan on viewing this several times. Because even though the Cross, the events of today are brutal and sad…

Sunday is coming.

    Thank you so much for making me your featured blogger!! I love that yall celebrate your daughter’s half birthdays! That is amazing and so sweet!! Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

  2. Whitney says:

    Celebrating half birthdays is fun! I didn’t grow up doing it, but I’ll take any reason to celebrate fun things with my family. Yay for Elizabeth’s new bike!! You totally made the right call on that one. Happy Easter to your cute family!

  3. Catherine Short says:

    I can only imagine the look on Elizabeth’s face when she received her bike. I feel like getting a bike is a monumental moment as a kid. I had hand-me-downs until I turned 10 when I got my very own. Which actually my dad uses sometimes to this day! HAHA.

  4. Anne says:

    Happy 1/2 birthday Elizabeth! So fun – Hendrik’s is tomorrow, and this makes me want to do something to celebrate, though there will be plenty of sugar with the neighborhood Easter egg hunt 🙂

    This is such a fun age for a bike – we did get him one for Christmas but were afraid it was going to be totally anti-climactic as a Christmas gift because usually there’s snow on the ground here… luckily we were able to use it a bit, and now it’s really great. If we hadn’t bought it already I’d totally use 1/2 birthday as an excuse.

    I know all about the half-birthday, having a summer birthday! Bringing munchkins to school on good ol’ February 28, haha! And yay for bikes! I love that Elizabeth had faith that Santa would bring one next year, although I totally would have caved at her sadness! (Of course, considering how I lose it over a cat!)
