We had the most AMAZING trip to Norway.  Honestly, it’s been hard to adjust back to real life.Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 12.42.34 PMWe spent two weeks on a cruise ship visiting so many beautiful cities along the coastline.

There were countless breathtaking fjords.

The weather was anywhere from -5 degrees to 75 degrees throughout our trip– but my packing strategy went off without a hitch!

After two weeks on the ship, we spent another week with family in Hvasser.  I could live here.Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 12.45.33 PM Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 12.45.41 PMWe truly had the trip of a lifetime.  Of course, only half of our family was there- so as you can imagine, after three weeks I was happy to get back to Lou and Michael (and the furry girls.)

Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's List

A couple of weeks ago, our little Lou turned seven.  She wanted a mermaid party inspired by her last Halloween costume.  It was so much fun designing the details.

Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's List Melissa custom-made these invitations for us.  Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListLou was so excited for the day of her party to finally arrive.Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListLuckily, her theme matched our porch.  😉Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListMint is Lou’s favorite color, so it made things very easy.

However, I had the brilliant idea of surprising the girls with goldfish thinking that they could double as centerpieces.  (I know, I am a maniac.)  I figured it was a great lesson in responsibility.  Much to my chagrin, my girls are far more responsible than I thought… I also learned that these goldfish can live up to 40 years.  Yowsa.Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListBut they love them.  Lou named hers Sparkles, and E named hers Lucky.Our Little Mermaid  |  Kiki's ListJust two more animals on this crazy farm… but back to the decorations…
