Happy Friday, everyone!! I want to start off by congratulating REGINA, as the winner of the Piggledee pouches! Check your email so I can get your prize to you! Thank you everyone else for entering. I wish I could give each of you a pair of these darling pouches, but make sure to check out Asako’s Etsy shop if you want to pick up some of your own. I truly love mine.
This week has been a blur of errands, emails and appointments! One thing that remains constant, however, is Olive’s current obsession with reading. I hope her love of books is more than a stage, of course! It’s just that these days, she can’t get enough of them. She is constantly bringing me (and Erik ) various books to read to her. I love when she waddles over to me and plops herself on my lap, snuggles in, and looks up at me as if to say, “Okay already, are you going to get to it??” Her current favorites include Let’s Dance, Little Pookie, Mister Seahorse, and Puppies… which is really a picture book with a bunch of dog photos! haha In Puppies, there is a tiny maltese named Toby and whenever we get to his page, Olive leans forward and plants a kiss on him! Melt my heart!! I think Erik knows that a maltese puppy is in the future one Christmas ahead… Although I’m sure I sound and look hilarious while I’m reading aloud to Olive, it is absolutely worth it. I love getting into character and watching her eyes widen and her face crinkle up in delight as I read to her. I’m never going to be too old or too busy to get silly with my little girl!
Does anyone else know the Pookie Shimmy?? I feel like I sing it 10x a day!
I have a lot of half-written posts in the queue so I will be spending some time this weekend preparing posts for next week. Remaining consistent with my blog posts is a big goal, so I truly appreciate all of you who stop by to read and comment. In addition to writing, my weekend will consist of purging & organizing my closets (a LOT more to sell on @shopangelscloset on Instagram, if you’re interested), having a Skype consultation with some potential clients, and swinging by Barnes & Noble to read up on our fast-approaching trip down under. So excited!! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, whether restful, productive, or both! See you next week with Olive’s 14-month post and more.
