I rarely share weekend posts anymore, but this one was just too good to pass up!  My brother came home from Colorado to celebrate both of our birthdays, our days are exactly two weeks apart and I have so many memories from shared birthday parties when we were little.  The girls always are so excited to see him when he visits, and it’s always fun to have a reason to be way cooler than we usually are and get out out of our usual weekend evening routine.  My favorite part might just have been Waverly & Avalon running free and ridiculously happy on the beach at 8:30 in the dark (we don’t let them out at night much).  And of course, shopping sans kids was pretty amazing too.  You guys!  I even got to try something on in the fitting room! 🙂
Waverly ran into my room the morning of my birthday with the biggest smile on her face holding a card that of course, my husband had gotten and she had recited to him what to write.  It said “dear mommy, happy birthday.  i would like a baby and also to go camping”.  May she always write me birthday cards JUST like that.
PS – I got the dress I am wearing over the weekend and love it so much!  It is super comfortable and can also be worn with leggings, and comes in lots of other prints!  Definitely getting a few more and definitely recommend it.
