Spring Break Road Trip - Day 2

Tuesday we chose Lulu's for breakfast because they have a THREE POUND CINNAMON ROLL.
I mean!

A Few Easter Touches

If you've followed here for a while you might remember my Easter decor has always been little speckled eggs, moss, etc.  This past weekend I was at Homegoods and I came across some FABULOUS big rattan carrots and a completely new Easter decor theme popped into my head.

Spring Break Road Trip - Day One

We took a 3-day road trip down to San Antonio last week during Spring Break and I can't wait to share everywhere we went and the things we did/saw.  I shared a bit along the way and so I'm going to try and answer all the questions I got and share #alltheinfo but don't hesitate to shoot me an email or leave a comment if you need any other details or if I leave anything out :)

Happy Friday, friends!  This is going to be short and sweet today because...
1 - my computer is being a butt
2 - I've been spending my day doing #allthethings I wanted to get done over Spring Break
3 - it's GORGEOUS outside and chalk and baseball practice area calling my name :)

Firday up on my list of FAVORITES today is this awesome "string of pearls" succulent that I picked up at Lowes last weekend.

Plant Lady

I always get lots of questions about my house plants and so today I'm reposting one of my most popular posts from last year all about plants!  I am far from an expert but never mind sharing what I've learned and as Spring approaches and we all want to plant #allthethings I thought this might be helpful in your endeavors.  Happy Planting, friends!!!

Recently I've been getting a TON of questions about the plants around my house.  A TON!  I am by no means a plant expert in the least, but today I thought I'd share a little bit about the indoor plants I've had success with and how I take care of them.  I ADORE having plants around the house and think they add so much to a room.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

. Y'all know that I'm partial to my " Chocolate Chip cookie" recipe (the name was given by Mason) :) but I'm always open to trying something new and was SO PLEASED with how these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies turned out.

Amazon Lately

Erika did a post highlighting some of her recent Amazon purchases and I loved the post so much I decided to share mine as well.  If you follow my Instagram stories you may be surprised that I'm sharing things from Amazon because GIIIIIRL was the service a.w.f.u.l. there for a bit.  But my last few orders have arrived on time and in tact so whatever was going on seems to have been corrected #allthepraisehands  And THANK GOODNESS because Heaven forbid I have to run to the store after work. 

First up from the past couple of weeks are  sea bands.  Griffin gets MAJORLY motion sick and we've had to pull over many times for her to get fresh air and/or lose her lunch on the side of the road.  She can't even do the swings without getting nauseous - poor baby.

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday, friends!  I really didn't think we had that much on our agenda for the weekend, but the pictures prove otherwise. ;)  It was FULL and fun and it started off with Kite Day at school on Friday.

Easter Basket Ideas for Girls

I'm not going to lie... I had way too much fun putting together this list ;)  I'm convinced that 4/5 is the most fun age to shop for because EVEEEEERYTHING is so stinkin' cute.  Like I said yesterday, we tend to choose quality over quantity with baskets and stockings and such and like to mix in toys and fun things with items that the kids need like bathing suits and summer shoes.
Without further ado, here are my ideas for little girls Easter baskets...

Easter Basket Ideas for Boys

Today I'm super excited to share a few Easter basket ideas for boys!  Both my boys are elementary-age (almost 7 and almost 10) and gone are the days of bubbles, hot wheels cars and coloring books.  Our philosophy on things like stockings and baskets and such has always been that we'd rather put fewer things in it than spend money on things that are going to end up in the junk drawer in 3 days :)  

I also like to mix things they'll be excited about (games, toys, etc.) with things that I would be buying them anyway (socks and bathing suits) because they're so excited about the moment that they are super enthusiastic about items that they'd normally not be :)  #momhack  

You should be able to hover over the item numbers in the image below to shop each item directly :)
