Easter (more pictures)

Woo! I got the rest of my photos to upload.  

Some more Easter fun...

Real life mess!!


Life is so busy around here!! It's not even like we are doing a lot, but man the kids hit these growth spurts or changes and our whole schedule goes out of whack.  I fear Brooke is done napping and keeping her quiet in her room while brother naps is some what of a full time job, thus resulting in no "me time" which I usually tried to use to blog.

We'll get into a groove and if the weather would stay nice, I believe we could exert some of this pent up energy out there!!

Onto the egg adventures.  I have a lot of beautiful photos on my digital camera, but they're not cooperating, so the iphone will have to do!

I still can't believe we are a family of four, even though last year was our first official holiday as such!

Looking back, I cannot believe how fast life goes and the kids grow up! Cliche, but so true.  I love our little family! [2015, 2014, 2013]

Brooke got into the egg coloring this year.

The Easter Bunny left a few sweet treats and a couple small goodies.  I don't really care what other people do, but Easter is not a second Christmas here.  We will always keep it small and simple.

Brooke and I made pink funfetti cupcakes and added jelly beans on top.

My pretty Keep of the Day!

My step mom, sister & I enjoying our cup of champagne punch!

So pretty.

Adults & kids goodies!

Joe had to take his new toy out for a ride and everyone had fun! Bradley couldn't get enough.

This is what he looked like after his little joy ride.  Oh, the mud!

Country Easter Brunch


How cute?!

I will try to upload the other photos again later.  

After my dad & step-mom's we drove out to Joe's grandma's house and spent some time there.  Needless to say, we were stuffed and totally exhausted; I'm talking in bed by 8, asleep by 9.

Hope you all had a beautiful weekend. We were truly blessed to have such gorgeous weather and loving souls to spend the day with.

10 Dinners Ideas with Recipes

Happy Friday!!

I kind of like sharing some of my favorite You Tubers with you on Friday! I don't watch TV much at all, but I do watch You Tube for lots of reasons.

I have followed Jen for almost 2 years.  She's got great cleaning, organization & meal ideas.  I personally find it really helpful to watch her videos to inspire me in all of those areas.

What do you watch for inspiration?

Lust List Spring '16

Happy Thursday!
I'm SO over this snow/ice/sleet junk sitting outside our windows.
I really want the weather to warm up so we can take long walks, play outside & just enjoy the sun.

Until then...

I've got quite a list growing in my mind of some very pretty things I would love to own!  
A girl can dream, right?

Lust List '16

I haven't bit the bullet to try these bad boys out yet.  I hear they're the most comfortable yoga pants ever, but I wouldn't know!

Summer Tote-
I mentioned my green tote yesterday, but I really love the geo cork look!  It's the same style, but has a different color/texture.  I love that I can stuff a bunch of baby stuff, plus my stuff & toddler. It's the perfect size mom tote!

Apple Watch-
I kind of want a fit bit, but Nikki said this would be better!
I would like to see my movement, sleep patterns, calories burned?
I need to do some more research.

New Nikes-
It's been a year and I really would like a new pair of kicks.
These hot pink do not come in my size 9, or they'd be purchased already.
Great price!

Ipad mini-
I love my iphone 6 plus and I have the ipad 2, so this is so not necessary. However, I would love a mini as it's not as bulky as my iPad.

What's on your lust list??

WILW [hello blog makeover!]

What I'm loving Wednesday!

How about my new blog look?? I am so happy with it!  I'm legit obsessed with white, pink & pops of gold/glitter.  I really wanted to simplify my blog and just have it look a little more sophisticated. I hadn't changed it up in 2 years, so it was time. Thanks so much Erin!

I'm loving two things about this photo--1.) The kids playing together.  They have their moments, but it's just so cute!! 2.)  They are sort of cleaning?! Yay!  Blurry picture, but man these two are something else. I love them to pieces!

I'm loving my monthly acupuncture appointment.  It really helps me unwind and focus on me.

I am love/hating this workout! My calves are killing me this morning!! It's only 22 minutes, but oh my goodness, it's not easy!  I also adore my coach and her fitness group.  I have no desire to be a BB Coach, but it's fun to play each day and get to know others & their goals.  Jenn originally shared Shakeo with me 3 years ago, but I decided to do the whole Advo thing...and now I am just doing this.  It's fun to change things up!  She is so inspirational to see her posts every day; mama of two little boys and working so hard.  It's hard not to want to be like her!

I'm loving my super bright green purse. I've been using it on the reg, and I get so many compliments! I used my hostess half off credits to purchase this beauty and love it. I cannot get enough Stella & Dot!  Shelby is always stylin me so well!
