And when I say festival, I don't mean Coachella or any other uber fun music festival. I mean momchella....all day err day! Yesterday was a great example of momchella. Nothing screams party like some store bought Trolls decorations, balloons, and a non-homemade cake. Oh, and pizza, and unwrapped presents handed out throughout the day. And half the pie I ate while watching Passengers after the kids went to bed.
If you've been around these parts for awhile then you know we set the birthday party expectations super low. We basically just make sure we check everything off their little wish list (within reason.....Avalon is already asking for a dolphin for her birthday). But we partied hard yesterday. By six Chris was saying, "is it bedtime? I feel like I haven't sat down all day." I feel ya homie, I feel ya. I half-heartedly wish I could get all pinterest-y with the kids' birthday celebrations, but I just feel like at their ages it is so much more for show, than for them. And I just can't stress myself out over burlap birthday banners, and the perfect tassel streamers. Not to mention my creativity starts and ends with scotch tape.
What I am really looking forward to is my date with Avalon on Friday to see Beauty and the Beast!! Who's going? She is just beaming with excitement every time she asks if it's Friday yet. I might even wear this outfit on repeat and layer a turtleneck under this denim dress, since the weather has decided to go crazy (I know I have no reason to say anything since we didn't see a speck of snow, but it is still chilly out there!) I am obsessed with this distressed denim dress though. And I mean, it's denim how could I not be? Avalon cannot be bothered with denim on the big day, she picked out a Belle themed ensemble, complete with rose printed tutu.
Is it Friday yet?
