I SO appreciate you all! Thank you to everyone who shared kitchen tips/opinions/advice. I seriously read through the comments three times with a notepad in hand! I think a few of you have talked me into adding a mini fridge in the island (great suggestion!). Having two dishwashers was mentioned and that little feature has been in the plans since day one. I'm all over it! Some of you mentioned that you couldn't picture the two island thing. I have been doing a lot of research to figure out if I want to do this and I landed on this picture:
I didn't have time this week to pull together a Fashion Friday post, but I bought some really cute stuff at Banana Republic! Hoping to share it all next week. For now here are some random recent pics...
A few from our Spring Break in Palm Springs:
We were always the first ones at the pool in the morning...
a post all about it a few years ago. :)
And a few pics of our annual weekend walk. We always let Kole out of the stroller for a bit....
and then the girls run ahead while one of us wrestles with Kole to get him back in the stroller.
The girls had a trial run for their upcoming dance recital. They had to go to dance class this week with full hair/make-up/costumes on. It was the first time I've ever put make-up on them! Kind of fun. :)
Well. Not so fun for Ellie. She was SO not impressed. She likes her dance (hip hop dance to Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance") but the costume was WAY too itchy (shock) and the make-up drove her crazy. She couldn't wait to come home and take it all off and get back in her pajamas.
She wouldn't even let me take more pictures. Just the one above and then a nice "enough mom" pose.
My little ballerina on the other hand...
was a TOTALLY different story. What a ham! She loves her dance. Loves her costume. (Who cares about comfort when you are wearing something so sparkly!?) And especially loved the make-up. So funny. She was beyond excited for me to put it on her. "And can you put some of that stuff on my eyes mom!? The stuff that makes them colorful? And can I have some lip gloss? The sparkly kind! And that black stuff on my eye lashes? Do it just like yours mom!"
Then I couldn't get her away from the mirror. :)
When we got to class they used her as an example because her bun was in the perfect spot on her head (high - not low). It was her day to shine and she grinned ear to ear the entire class.
I'm in trouble with this one.
Have a great weekend everyone!
