Here are a few of our Friday Favorites from this week.
Favorite Picture – Mariyah was painting my toenails and insisted that Violet needed to get in on the action. Violet wasn’t feeling well so I didn’t think she would be interested, but she proved me wrong! Afterwards she strutted around the house showing her toes to everyone who would look at them just like Yiyah. How sweet are these sisters?
Favorite Post – When you have a blog, it’s really weird to see what posts people love and hate. Sometimes no one reads your very best stuff, and sometimes lots of people share posts that you didn’t think would get much traffic, as was the case with a post I wrote earlier this week on Violet’s chronic illness. Here it is in case you missed it then.
Favorite Story – Okay so this cracked me up a little bit. I was in the kitchen last night cleaning up from dinner and I could hear James and Mariyah talking in the living room. They were whispering (loudly, since neither one is exactly proficient at the whisper).
Mariyah: Do you think there’s going to be ice cream for dessert?
James: No way.
Mariyah: What? Why not?! I saw cookies and cream in the freezer!
James: That was last weekend Mariyah. there’s no way there is any of that left. Mommy has definitely finished it by now.
For the record there WAS ice cream left, although I had made a dent in it I had not actually finished it. But man, my kid knows me too well.
Favorite Book – Violet is just as hooked on The Very Hungry Caterpillar this week as she was last week, Mariyah and James have been rereading The Ramona books. Of all the series we own Ramona has definitely logged the most page turns. I think we’ve read every single book 3 or 4 times. I’ve got to be honest, I prefer the old illustrations, but atleast the story still rocks.
Favorite Recipe – I’m pretty picky about beverages. Most of the time I would just prefer to drink water. I know, I know, party animal in the house. But these Classic Mint Mojitos from Goodie Godmother look amazing. I love how refreshing a mojito is in the summer.
