CATEGORIES: Love This...Not So Much,
Last week fell into the category of “crazy-busy” for our family. But it was the good kind of busy. Actually, the best kind of busy. A week full of house guests all loved and adored. Trips to local attractions to show off our town. And time spent with loved ones that are usually far, far away.
I had lots of reasons to smile last week and I love sharing them with you!
First smile…the zoo!
If you are ever in the Toledo, Ohio, area for the love of God visit our zoo! It is one of the best in the country as the exhibits are state of the art! I took my nephew, Charlie, who was visiting us from Minneapolis. When we started our tour he remarked that our zoo was ”no better” than the Minneapolis zoo.
But as the exhibits unfolded and he saw…
…giraffes, he finally admitted that although Minneapolis has a lot over Toledo, the Toledo Zoo kicks Minneapolis’ Zoo from here to high heaven!
The second smile….
My roomates from college visited last week with their kids. It was an overnight affair which translated to sleeping bags and air mattresses in every corner of our home. Amy, my roommate from at Miami University, also has five kids, and this is her youngest. She and MK are two peas in a pod, and the pictures above are oddly reminiscent of their mothers’ earliest shenanigans!
I especially liked the pj’s and click clack heels…
Mk loves music and spends a lot of time jammin’ with her imaginary rock band. Saturday I caught her involving her sisters. The funny part….she was incredibly frustrated. It seems that Reagan and Isabella weren’t exactly on board!
Apparently the symbols taste better than they sound!
Reagan and Isabella have a HUGE day this upcoming Saturday and their party gear arrived last week! I ordered their outfits from Groovy Gurlz on Etsy. I can’t wait to be sponsoring a give away from Groovy Gurlz in a few weeks. Stay tuned for the adoreable birthday pics! Right now…we are in full out party planning mode!
The winner from last week’s Mac Wagon giveaway was Allie Darr, from TableforMoreblog.com! Congrats to Allie. Email me with your address so I can ship the wagon to you!
I’ll be appearing on 101.5 The River this Wednesday morning. We are talking Back-to-Schoool, and I’ll have a great giveaway to go along with the the appearance. Tune in and check my blog Wednesday morning for more details!
In the meantime I hope this week brings you many, many smiles!
Lord knows there are plenty around here!
