five on friday

{1} Homemade falafel. You guys. Jon ended up making homemade falafels for dinner on Wednesday night and it gave me life. Etta was a pretty big fan, too! If you have never experienced the joy that is falafel, make it a priority to find a nice Middle Eastern joint that serves it. You won't be disappointed!

{2} Cuddles with my big guy. Jon had a group bike ride Wednesday night so I let the kids have a sleepover in Edith's room. She woke up early and decided to turn the light on before Elden was awake. Suffice to say, he had a slow moving morning. I crawled onto the mattress for a few minutes to cuddle and when I got up to get ready for work Elden asked me to cuddle for a few more minutes. I happily obliged because I know these moments are fleeting. 

{3} Sally's wedding! Elden and Edith are going to be 'flower fairies' in the ceremony so I did a little online shopping for their outfits. I got Edith this dress and Elden this top and these pants. I want to get Elden some navy suspenders and a gold bow tie as well. There's also the issue of dress shoes... the kids don't own any since they rarely have an occasion to wear them to. I hope to hit up some child resale stores when the wedding gets a bit closer to get a bargain on some!

{4} We watched the movie Storks on Wednesday night and loved it! This song was at the end of the movie and I am in love.

{5} Jon's 30th birthday is in November. He's a really big introvert so a big party isn't really his scene. I asked him what he'd like to do and he said go to the Cleveland Museum of Art and maybe stay at a hotel for the night. I've started looking into accommodations in the area and I'm really excited to plan something for him!
