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!

  • We pulled out our @appleblossomwovens Black Agate Tencel wrap for this chilly weather. It’s been cold and rainy, so the extra coziness of Tencel has been great. ⁣

Black Agate has been one of our favorite monochrome wraps ever. 🖤 It truly speaks to me. I can’t wait for Reflection to be released which is another monochrome wrap, with a kaleidoscope weave. Both white and black weft are speaking to me. M

  • Who is always at the ready to take somebody’s head off during the holidays? 🙋🏽‍♀️ Just look at me wrong or finish my favorite dish and it’s over. ⁣

The social anxiety is real and @socialcbd has really helped during this past holiday week and the upcoming festivities. Thank you #SocialCBD for helping this mama out during the holidays. ⁣

  • Obsessing over @squeezamals this holiday season! The picnic pack was the cutest addition to our Squeezamals collection. Everything came for a perfect picnic lunch. ⁣

Dumpling loves the texture of the squish of the Squeezamals. She is always found with one in her hands. ⁣

If you’re interested in grabbing some for your littles, check out your local @walmart!

  • I volunteered in my daughter’s classroom for Thanksgiving. I helped on the food line so I had to tie Dumpling to my back and make turkey sandwiches. We do teach the kids that we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, and the teachers discussed the truth with the kids. I’m glad I didn’t have to step in like previous years 🤦🏽‍♀️⁣

My tote bag from @shopkindredtogether is my favorite though. I’m able to fit everything in there. A quick link to the shop is in my profile & you can use code APRILOCT to save 💰 ⁣

  • We were so lucky to be able to check out the Flip & Spin for the Win bundle - thanks to @PowerYourFun. The bundle included Laser Launchers (which I can’t pry out of Tot’s hands), the Mini Cyclone Stunt Car, and Turbo Tops Gyro Cars - which you see pictured here. These are our favorite part of the bundle, the kiddos are constantly try to do tricks with them. ⁣

Thank you Kaliber Global Toys for this awesome gift! #sponsored #PowerYourFun #TurboTops @apexdropofficial
  • Yesterday was my birthday! I’m thirty-something (the something is silent 🤪) and it was a good day. A made it back from a 10 day trip just in time to celebrate. The kids were so excited to make mom’s day fun. ⁣⁣

My sister always grabs a red velvet bundt cake for me and I love it. It’s my favorite. My grandmother used to bake me a red velvet cake every year when I was younger and it’s important to me to have it. ⁣

Here’s to another revolution around the sun ☀️
  • I posted about the awesome @pjmasks PJ Masks Seeker about a month ago. I grabbed it at @target and kept it hidden until it was Tot’s birthday. He had already completely forgotten about it & it was a wonderful surprise to open on his day 🎂 He’s been playing with it nonstop and his sisters keep trying to get a turn. ⁣

Thank you to MomSelect for gifting us this toy. It’s the perfect toy for this @pjmasks obsessed family. #ad⁣

  • My middle child. My wild child. He’s officially 5 years old and 1 day. I tried to make sure he had a fun filled day yesterday and now I’m exhausted. This year he decided he didn’t like cake and asked for donuts instead 🍩 ⁣

Happy birthday Tot 💕
  • We saved this Star Wars coding kit for Tot’s birthday and it was a hit! He was totally interested in putting it together and making things work. He’s my little tinker. ⁣
