Happy Spring!

April 1, 2016 6 Comments

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! We spent it with friends and family – couldn’t have gone any better. I just love being able to spend time with everyone. Nobody had to be at work, nobody had to be somewhere else. It was pretty low key, with the people I love and that was great.


We tried to check out the local egg hunt. Apparently, so did everyone else. I booked it in the opposite direction. Those crowds were insane. I didn’t even realize that many people lived in the area. I don’t understand how kids could find eggs in this crowd. I heard that the eggs basically disappeared once it started and a lot of kids left upset. Parents get ruthless in kid’s games.


We walked in the local parade with our Babywearing International friends. That was a lot of fun. It was a short little parade and Birdie got to hand out stickers and erasers to other kids. She loved it. We also handed out cards to babywearing parents. I hope to see new faces at some of our meetings.
As for Sunday, we had an amazing dinner at home. The menu was seafood. We had lobster tail, shrimp and crab. So fresh and so good. We also had some ham. The kids got to color eggs. We also spent all night playing Disney Cranium.


Cascarones was also a part of the festivities. It was a mess. It took me forever to get it out of the kids’ hair. I’m pretty sure I have a welt on my side where my brother tried to nail me with one. We all came together to clean up though – my mother was proud.

Hope you had a good one!

  • Bring me back to Christmas Day dinner 🍴 I wish I could have some lobster tails 🦞 almost every day. This was such an awesome meal. ⁣

What do you eat when you celebrate for different holidays?  We do ham on Easter, turkey on Thanksgiving, and callaloo for New Years. I can’t wait for Chinese New Year - that’s my favorite meal 🧧 ⁣

  • The rain is gone! It’s so sunny ☀️ And it’s supposed to be in the high 60s for about a week - so excited 🎉⁣
⁣
The older kids got electric scooters for Christmas🎄 but haven’t been able to take them out because of the rain. Now we are going out multiple times a day. It’s good exercise. No major injuries, yet. ⁣

  • Checking out this bourette silk tester, Everdeen from @waywardwovens has been fun. I love checking out new fibers and seeing their wrap qualities. I’ll  have a more in-depth review on the blog later this week 💕⁣

  • I was so excited to try out these #japanesecosmetics! I’ve heard so many good things about @cureaquagelofficial and it’s always sold out on different websites. I was #gifted these products to try out. ⁣
⁣
The #naturalaquacuregel has been amazing with this winter weather. My skin has not been agreeing with it. It’s so dry and flaky - which has really ceased with the use of the #gentleexfoliator. ⁣

We had a fun Christmas! It’s always wonderful to get together and see everyone. A is already back at work and the kids have cabin fever. They want out, but it’s rainy and wet. They want to play with their new toys 😂🤷🏽‍♀️ ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
How did you end up celebrating?⁣⁣
