Our Week & Favorites

What a week!!  We started out with a little Easter festiveness & ended celebrating St. Patrick's Day, plus tried to fit in as much outside time as we could along the way.  Someone please tell me how it's already time for all of this, because I am pretty sure we were just ringing in 2016 last week.
Right?

 A couple things before I share way too many photos, which for the record are only a fraction of what I took this week.  One, that little smile of Avalon's may just be the reason that I have one million babies.  That and how she loves peek-a-boo lately, how she claps her hands when we do, and even how she is copying everything big sister does (the good & the bad).  Two, which may just make me sound crazy for saying number one, the girls have been less than stellar sleepers lately & we are tired.  So tired.  Waverly is still up and ready to party every night until at least nine, which just so happens to be the same time frame that Avalon sleeps her best.  The rest of the night she has been restless, which is rare for her, she's always been an amazing sleeper.  I blame the time change.

And three, pinterest.  Gave me one win & one loss this week.  The win, the whisk egg dying idea for kids, I found it a couple years back and it's still working like a charm.  The loss, rainbow pancakes, which turned out ok but I'm just not sure they were worth the one million bowls I had out or the giant mess that resulted from them.  Isn't that they way they often work?!


A few favorites!!!  One, these wedges are everything.  Just everything.  I love a good pair of wedges, they are so comfy but still so fun, and these would literally go with everything all spring and summer.  Two, girl mamas, two of my favorite pieces ever for baby girls are back at Gap for the spring.  These denim bloomers & this denim top.  Both are so versatile, Avalon has had them in every size so far and now I'm stocking up for next year!  And my absolute favorite, this dress!!!!  It reminds me of the one Lauren wore on The Bachelor After the Rose Monday night, so you know, that kind of seals the deal. ;)

Wishing you all a very happy weekend!

  8. I have always wondered if the whisk trick worked for dying eggs. I will definitely be trying this going forward! And that lace dress is stunning!

  9. Sweet Avalon's smile!!! Gosh she gives me baby fever with that sweet smile.
    Oh and the Pinterest pancakes... pretty sure I made Seth do that last year or the year before for Mason and he hated me for a few days after that LOL.
