The countdown is on, Easter is in exactly 9 days & we are a couple of very happy bunnies over here!! We have friends coming in town this weekend & lots of spring shenanigans planned to get into. I cannot wait to celebrate all things Easter, we love this holiday (& all the other ones) too much. 🙂
Here are five other things we are loving at the moment, thanks to Darci & the ladies of this link-up!
ONE: We took Waverly Maye to see the Easter bunny last weekend, it’s something I have been both looking forward to & terrified of for some time now. Our experience with Santa prepared me for the worst, I couldn’t decide if the extra few months Waverly has on her since then would make her less or more scared of the giant, random man in costume. You know, the one we would hand her off to & ask her to sit in his lap & smile while we walked away.
Turns out she liked him even less than Santa, I’ll spare you the terribly sad pictures which look more like a crime scene than a happy holiday tradition. I’ve accepted it, don’t really blame her (I think he is pretty creepy myself), & have settled on a “bunny-eared beanie” instead.
My mom got Waverly this hat on sale at H&M
, I love how festive it is for this month! This jumpsuit from BabyGap (sold-out) is also one of my absolute favorites, pairing grey with a pastel is just the sweetest on little ladies (& gents, too!).
: Waverly had a couple pairs of jelly sandals
last summer, they totally bring me back to my childhood which makes me so very happy! We have stocked up on a couple more, but even better, DSW
has a line of jelly sandals out for us mamas. Why shouldn’t we join in on the fun, too?! 😉 I am obsessed, & loving this lace-up pair
both in the nude & the mint for only $20.00! #yesplease
THREE: This ice-cream cake is the best (& worst) thing ever, it’s a recipe my parents & grandparents made for us while growing up that was always a favorite. It is too perfect for this time of year, the colors make it so pretty for entertaining & not to mention, pastels are so very on trend. 😉
To make it, combine angel-food cake broken into pieces (I just bought it already made) & rainbow sherbert into a metal or bundt cake pan, then melt vanilla ice cream & pour it over. Freeze for a few hours, top with cool whip & then put back in the freezer. Be warned, if you have a sweet tooth like me, you will be addicted as it is the most refreshing & delicious treat. I used low-fat everything which basically (in my mind) allowed for bigger pieces at each sitting.
: We have a Easter Egg Brunch/Hunt with friends planned for Sunday, I’m so excited & know that this Easter activity has Waverly’s name all over it. I picked up these treat cups
at Target & plan to fill them with mini-waffles for the little ones, the adults will of course be more concerned with the momasas.
: And because one Target shout-out wasn’t enough, I got this chalkboard beverage dispenser
there the other day & love it! The best part is obviously that Waverly can’t break it, I can’twait to use it for our brunch this weekend!
I have to mention that today marks the start to my SPRING BREAK!! I am so very excited for a week with my sweet, sweet blue-eyed little lady, I can’t even stand it!
HAPPY, happy weekend to you all, we hope it is a great one!
