Can I just high-5 you all or even fist bump you because…what, what…it’s Friday. Crazy excited it’s Friday. So many good things this weekend to look forward to…so many good times to be had. Life is full and can be hard as hell sometimes, but it sure is good too. Like really good. So Insta Friday, how I love thee, let me count the ways.
My niece Campbell had a winter themed birthday party last weekend and my SIL Jen asked me to make some snowflake cookies for the par-tay. I obliged because that’s what aunts do I made extra and shared with a sweet friend who happens to adore sugar cookies with frosting. Cookies for days people…for days.
Some people asked on Instagram about the lining and then flooding of the cookies. I use The Royal Icing (sort of recipe) from The Decorated Cookie. I just outline in the regular frosting consistency and then thin it down with 1/2 teaspoon of water at a time, until it”s a good consistency to flood the cookie. Hope that helps a bit…Google probably describes it better than me. Ha.
She is his most favorite person. It is such a big love and it sounded as if he said “Harper” this week, which delighted her heart.
We’ve ditched birthday parties for the wee Kelleys and started just doing something together as our little family of 6. Harper’s birthday is coming up in March and she chose The Color Run. So we’re Color Running again this year. Hope it’s as amazing as last year and we’ve already prepped Sol that because it’s Harper’s birthday choice, he has to go. He’s accepted it.
I made myself my own cookie…nibbled on it at night and then finished it off for breakfast. I have no shame.
This little gem was discovered in my in-laws basement and they told Josh to take it. Well absolutely. Hello awesome, new/vintage free wall art. We are pretty partial to Tennessee too.
He has the most amazing form. I envision “yoga instructor” in his future.
Amon is the most joyful happy baby I have ever seen. Ever. Practically all the time. Josh and I tell each other all the time how ridiculous he is. He’s a dream.
Just some brotherly lunch love. That’s all.
I bought this coffee mug for my Mom when I was in Florida when I got the word she had brain cancer. I never got to give it to her because she never made it out of the hospital. She loved her coffee and sparrows and red was her most favorite color, along with a good hot pink. It so matches her personality…lively and full. It’s now my favorite mug.
Some baby gift loving for a friend. Happy mail is the best kind of mail.
Fabulous hair. Fabulous smile. Fabulous scar. Fabulous heart. Fabulous baby.
Icecream night is the best night to be a Kelley. The best. The wee Kelleys would concur.
Sol waits so much more patiently for cookies when the force is with him.
Running my miles on down. Getting closer and closer to 55 miles. Only 13 days left.
Mumford & Sons love. These all sold yesterday. Thank you guys…you’re amazing.
Harper got this neon blue hat/mittens cat combo for Christmas from her grandparents. When she puts it on she immediately morphs into this hilarious cat character. It’s quite entertaining.
And you may want to overt your eyes…this last one is just a bit too much to handle. Good golly, I like him.
Are you on Instagram? I’m pitterpatterart if you want to follow along. It’s pretty fun.
Have a crazy awesome weekend.
