Sundays with Isaac and Olive are my favorite and I look forward to them all week long! Yesterday was one of those days where I felt like I was living something out of a movie and I just didn't want it to end. We picnicked in the sunshine with a big bag of mangos and just talked about how amazing life is right now and how excited we are about the next 5 years. 

But the highlight of our day was my baby sister's wedding! She got married at The Old Mecklenburg Brewery right down the road from where we live. It was so much fun getting to dress up and feel all pretty with my siblings. I love each of them so much and love how close we all are. We took some silly selfies which I'm shamelessly sharing here on my blog because this space is a representation of me and I hope I will always be light hearted and fun loving. =)

I almost never curl my hair but I decided super last minute (literally 10 minutes before we were supposed to leave) that I wanted to and Isaac was so sweet to watch Olive while I did. I ended up loving my hair this way and think I'll do it more often. It helps add a little texture to my hair too which means it lasts longer between washings. Win win. 

It seems like every event we have been going to the last couple weeks has been right smack in the middle of Olive's late afternoon nap (she still takes 2-3 naps a day) and she's having meltdowns whenever we are out at night with her. She used to get sleepy and fall asleep while we held her but she won't do that anymore and she just gets so fussy and cranky until we take her home and put her to bed. Thankfully we made it through the wedding ceremony but by the time pictures were done and cocktail hour was wrapping up she was so overtired. I had used up every toy in my purse trying to keep her happy so we had to go home and put her to bed. I felt bad missing my sister's reception but this is just where we are at in life right now. I wouldn't trade being this baby's mommy for anything in the world! There are ups and downs but we just try to make the best decisions for our little family. Next time I think we'll get a babysitter so Olive can go to bed on time and we can enjoy some dinner and dancing. =) 

Have a great week! xoxo Christine
