Why is it SO difficult to get Eloise to look at the camera? Our many attempts this weekend...

I was thinking yesterday, I'd be completely lying if I said that I didn't love Mondays. Yes, I'm sure that some of you think I'm plain crazy. Most people absolutely dread Mondays. The thought of the weekend being over, and getting back to the daily grind plagues their minds all weekend long. The ongoing weekly routine. But me being the optimist that I am, soak up Mondays. I mean come on, what's better than a fresh start? Being able to forget the mishaps from the week before, and instead focus on the week ahead. All the endless possibilities. Mondays are heavenly, in my book. Hoping you all had a lovely weekend, and a fresh start yesterday with your Monday.

Our weekend was perfect. It was jam packed with...

Birthday celebrations (My Grandpa's 80th, and my Best Friend's 23rd)

Movie night and Mexican take-out

Maybe she's so used to the camera so now she wants to try different angles ;)

Thank you for the sweet comment! Being a fellow mommy yourself I'm sure you know it's hard to even get out of the house on a daily basis and not look like a crazy person, ps Eloise is a doll :)
