Easter Fun & Friday Things

Happy Friday, friends!!  I can't even believe that today kicks off the last weekend in March, time is flying & I feel like I can't keep up.  My pregnancy brain certainly isn't doing me any favors, I have spent the last week ordering replacements for all my cards because apparently, I drove out of the parking lot from Waverly's My Gym Class with my wallet on the hood of my car.  I spent a couple days trying to track it down & it seems to be the only thing that could have happened, though I was really trying to hold out hope that I would magically find it.  No such luck, instead it's official, I'm losing my mind. ;)

In other news, Easter planning & celebrating is well under way!  Waverly Maye has a love/hate relationship with the holiday so far this year, she has a major fear of the Easter bunny (understatement), and is obsessed with anything to do with playing or hunting for eggs, especially when it results in candy.  We had our first hunt last weekend with her cousins, she was a little skeptical at first (I swear she thought the bunny was going to pop out at any moment), but then was totally down for anything when she figured out that she got to run endlessly & then eat all things sweet.


She got to take the biggest bucket of candy home from the hunt, which I have since hidden, after the meltdown of all meltdowns happened over the fact that she couldn't have three bags of skittles for dinner.  Though letsbehonest, me & my recent sweet tooth just wanted to throw all mom judgement out the window and join her.

 We are hosting our own hunt this weekend at our house, with some friends & their little ones!  Even though it's supposed to get cold again & the weather won't be the best for outside exploring, we are super excited to get the kids together.  It will be our second year in a row, so it's so much fun to see how much the kids have grown since then, & also this year, so have the mamas!  Three of us are pregnant again, all due within a few weeks of each other. :)
We are going to do a brunch, an egg casserole and lots of sweets.  Waverly & I got a head-start this week with our favorite, funfetti cupcakes!


Some other recent favorites, my mom picked up baby girl a few sleepers & onesies this week, all from Carters.  Their entire site is 50% off right now, such a great time to stock up on basics that are affordable, I remember how fast we went through those with Waverly (& that really, it was all she fit into for quite a while).   Also, is it too soon to dream of actually wearing clothes with zippers again?!  These wide-legged jeans are the cutest, they would be perfect with a floral tank over the summer!  Lastly, a Waverly favorite, her umbrella (similar here).  All it takes is one raindrop & she insists on bringing it with us, a girl can never have too many accessories, right?


Happy, happy weekend!

  1. I can't believe it's almost April. They year has been FLYING by, right? But hey, it's birthday month, wooooohoooooooooo!!!!

    Oh goodness, lil Waverly is so precious in her lil outfits. I love watching lil kids look for Easter eggs, it's just the cutest lil thing in the world. Hopefully she doesn't get too scared with this years bunny.

    Hope your hunt goes well. Those cupcakes look amazing!

  2. Oh my gosh her little flower crown and her umbrella?! So precious! I would totally be eating all the candy she found too, it would be so hard not to! I can't blame her for wanting Skittles for dinner either! ;-)

  3. Ahhh, I've lost my entire wallet, too, but I couldn't blame it on pregnancy brain then! What a bummer! I have totally eaten most of the candy that Cam's gotten for Easter so far, and I have no shame. ;) We're doing them (and us) and favor by not letting them have it, right?! :) I hope you have a great weekend - what a fun get together!! I can't wait to see pictures!

  4. I love that Waverly is into umbrellas; she really is all about her accessories! Liam is far more interested in his rain boots so he can be in ALL the puddles!

  6. How fun! Isn't this cold weather so annoying when trying to do outside spring type things! We are hosting an egg hunt here this weekend too and the ground is soaking wet from rain and even some leftover snow and we have to do it inside :(. Not what you think of for an Easter egg hunt but the kids won't care as long as they get to eat candy! Have a great weekend!

  7. ha love the one drop of rain umbrella. It started to sprinkle ever so lightly while we were outback and she made everybody come back inside including the dogs and refused to go back out. Dad kept trying to entice her and she kept yelling at him to 'get back here, is raining!'
    And, I love your cupcakes! I want cupcakes now.

  13. Waverly already had her first egg hunt of the season?! Lucky girl! Mia loooooooved all the egg hunts last year! We were supposed to go to our first one tomorrow but poor Mia girl caught some bug that is knocking her out :( I was up at 3am with her and her fever of 103.... poor baby! I highly doubt she will be able to kick this before tomorrow, but I'm crossing my fingers!
    Brunch and egg hunt with your friends and their kids sound like the BEST time!! Waverly is gonna love it SO much!
    Also, that umbrella?! Adorable!

  14. Capri is just as scared of the Easter bunny as Waverly! Bummer! I love Easter and she happens to love the Easter egg hunts, too, so we have that going for us! Your little hunt you have planned sounds like a blast! I am loving Waverly's little floral headband. Have a great weekend!

  16. we LOVE Carters. Such cute stuff and it seems to last so well. I've really pretty much dropped the ball with Easter this year. With all of Nora's drama and having two girls to corral, I'm failing. Oh well...there's always next year right?!?

  17. I love those wide legged jeans - perfect! And of course, they are completely sold out. Womp, womp. If you see any that look like those though, let me know. Those just might have to be my first post-baby purchase:)

    And those cupcakes are adorable!:) I am looking forward to the egg hunt with Caleb this year. Last year, he wasn't sure what was going on, but this year I think he'll enjoy it:) Happy Friday!

  18. Waverly's little outfits and floral crown are just the sweetest!
    Your egg hunts sound like so much fun, and I can't wait for the one we will be participating in next weekend.
    And how did I miss the 50% off at Carters?! Apparently I'm headed off to shop now. :)

  19. How fun that you have some time with friends planned for some Easter fun! I'm sure it will be so nice getting together. I just went to Carters today and wanted to buy everything! All of their clothes are so cute and so affordable too, it's hard not to buy it all! Have a happy weekend!

  21. Ugh girl that sucks about your wallet! Replacing cards is so much work!! Pregnancy brain is no joke... I feel like I still don't have my mind back 2.5 yrs postpartum! haha!

    Love waverly's little umbrella, I would love to get Scarlett one (because I know she would love it) but it would probably blow away here in Lethbridge!

  22. That star romper Waverly is wearing in those last pictures is A.DORABLE! Seriously, I want one in my size.
    We are doing an egg hunt next weekend with Mason and his cousins and I'm so excited for him this year. He kinda got is last year so this year should be that much more fun! Hope you have the best weekend!
