On Friday night, Mike and I attended the Iris Awards, a ceremony that honors online content creation in the parenting space. Mike and his coworker, Morgan, were nominated for their work at BuzzFeed, and they won the award for Most Entertaining Content!

most entertaining content! Also Andrew McCarthy!

And they got to take a picture with Blaine, I mean, with Andrew McCarthy, who was the host of the ceremony.

It was fun to get all dressed up. I got a dress from Rent the Runway that I really liked (Juxtaposed Dress by Cynthia Rowley):

On the model, the dress hit above her knee. Ah, the life of a shorty.
