Hello, Spring! I think I speak for all of us when I say that we are so very excited to see you. It's been a long winter drowning in layers while mother nature has played some crazy tricks on us with snowstorm after snowstorm. My outdoor girl & I have been desperately peeking out the windows for a while now (she repeating "out-siiide" over & over), we couldn't be more happy that it is now official!
We spent part of our first spring weekend adding some spring-time colors, floral touches, & hints of Easter to the house. I am drooling over pastels right now, they are everywhere both for the home & mama/mini fashion and I can't get enough!! Thankfully Target (or not thankfully?) has the perfect spring line out, many of the pieces I picked up last year & then added some recently that complement them well. :)
As if it wasn't exciting enough that I got to reunite with Waverly Maye after three (very long) days in NYC, the weather on Saturday could not have been more perfect. We literally spent every minute we could outside, complete with a picnic lunch for three with bubbles for entertainment, no shoes required.
We took advantage of the playhouse Waverly's grandparents got her for Christmas, it sits on our screen porch although I'm sure she wishes it was in her room instead (or that she could just live in it permanently). It is super fancy with a sink that she "washes" her hands in & a door bell, plus a seat for her to take a half-a-second break on. It was all fun & games until I walked inside to grab her goldfish & walked back out to find her climbing through the window to get inside instead of the door.
For the record, she did it with 100% success & I'm even more scared out of my mind for my future. ;)
We also took a family bike ride to enjoy the weather, we got this bike trailer last year & are so excited to get more use out of it in the months to come!! Waverly loves it, is even willing to sit still in it & stay strapped down with no complaints. There also is tons of extra room for other kids (when needed!), diaper bags, snacks, cocktails for the parents ... a total win for everyone.
Naturally, the weather forecast has a snow mix for us tomorrow. Here's to hoping an entire day of fresh air can help Waverly last a few more days peeking though those windows again (& that we can embrace the warm again soon!).
She's such a sweet outdoor girl & can really rock the hell out of some floral print.
