picture me {im}perfectly.the dishes

first of all…
happy, happy birthday
to my sweet sister,
Aunt WW!

(you can check our her little blog here
and her etsy shop here)

we were able to celebrate her birthday early this year
and she was kind enough to let us
have it at our place
rather than go to a restaurant with the children
(because let’s be honest, that is fun for no one). 
and seeing that L needs to be in bed by 6:15pm.

she is quite fashionable
and hands down the most fashionable one in our family.
i think we’d all agree with that.
am i right?
yeah, i’m right.
it does help that she would look good wearing a garbage bag
(as i outlined here).
well, to her birthday dinner
she wore a cute yellow dress
and a matching yellow clip in her hair.

apparently, the clip made quite the statement
because my children
(after getting restless that the adults were still talking)
drew pictures of the birthday girl.
and in both of those pictures,
the yellow hair clip made an appearance.

this is when K was really restless.
i think she could smell the cupcakes
that were waiting for us inside.

i can’t wait to see what 
God is going to do in her life this year.
it’s going to be good.
for all of His gifts are good.

my sister often comes over for a visit
and in honor of her coming over,
i never do a dish.
not even one.
that’s how you know we’re tight.
if i let you see my dirty dishes.
sometimes i don’t even do the breakfast ones until dinner.
gross, right?
totally gross.
but there are three little people
that need my attention and 
unfortunately for the dishes, 
they can’t demand my attention.

all of the confessions from Laura’s post from last week 
were such a beautiful insight into her life.
go check that housewife out.

picture me {im}perfectly

your crafts are not always picture perfect,

other women 
that none of us have it all together.

But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, 
where moth and rust do not destroy, 
and where thieves do not break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:20-21
