Easter Weekend

11:26 AM
Juliet's interest in Easter is still mostly because of the Easter bunny and all the eggs but the love is definitely there.  We woke up and ate a quick breakfast before getting ready for church and diving into easter baskets.  Juliet got a new lovie, (since we lost her horse that she bonded with while in the hospital on our last trip to Wilmington), Tegu blocks, a night light, bunny ears, markers, nail polish, candy, and a book.  Everything she pulled out of the basket accompanied a gasp and a "wow, whaaat's diiiis?".  

We came home after lunch with the family and hunted eggs in our yard.  I didn't stuff those eggs with anything and Juliet kept opening each then looking at me like, "what's your angle woman"... After realizing that the eggs were empty it became her mission to give them all to me instead of putting them in her basket.  I think it was her subtle way of telling to put candy in them.  

It was a long day but a good one... and a tiring one for some of us.  

Since Easter we have been either hiding, looking for, or stepping on plastic eggs.  They usually stick around forever, but this year they're all going to make their way into the attic or the trash very soon.  Hope you all had a wonderful Easter with your friends and family.  XO

-P.S. All the photos were taken with my phone so they're a bit grainy... sorry. 

For the Easter Basket

3:45 PM
I haven't done a post in, what feels like, forever... so what better way to start things hopping again than an Easter post!  (Pun intended.)  I know it's officially Spring, but we are finally getting actual Spring weather and it's so refreshing.  I always love playing the Easter Bunny this time of year, especially with Jules getting older!   It's also nice to focus on something other than Spring cleaning, therapy sessions, or hospital bills.  The dust is still settling for the most part but we are feeling better and better everyday!  

Easter is in 2 weeks and I hope this gives you a little bit of inspiration for filling your little one's basket(s)! :)  We usually pick a cute book, (or twelve), for Juliet's basket as well as fun bunny ears or pajamas.  I like to stuff her plastic eggs with bows, play dough, nail polish, bubbles, and stickers.  Also, Target's dollar bin has the cutest things right now!  I'm so excited about reading A Little Princess with Juliet because it was one of my favorite movies and books growing up.  I also ordered her this bracelet from an Instagram shop called Braided Mermaid and I was blown away at how much I loved it in person!  There's also a set of Tegu blocks that we will quickly add to our bag we take to restaurants. Any other mama's have a survival kit for restaurants? Can't leave the house without ours.
So here ya go, our Easter roundup!

What's going in your baskets this year?
