Spring Break Highlights

We've had a nice staycation Spring Break!  We went on a little road trip for Fletcher's birthday and then the rest of the week we stuck close to home.  Lots of sleeping in, hanging out in our pjs, doing whatever we want and just enjoying the week together.  We got a TON of rain so most of our plans happened indoors.  Fletcher turned 2 and loved all of the birthday attention.  It was fun!

Fresh Flowers.
Our tulips outside have yet to bloom, but we enjoyed this beautiful bouquet all week long.

Between my cats and my kids... this is why I don't have fresh flowers on the regular.  I walked into the kitchen to find Fletch slurping and sniffing my tulips.  I had this tune stuck in my head all week: This is why we can't have nice things, darling. Because you break them.  I had to take them away.

Does anyone still do chalk art??  Seems like letter boards have taken over the world.  I love letter boards, but still enjoy writing my monthly chalkboards.  Here's my Easter board.

Blue Bell Ice Cream has arrived in Indiana!!!
This has always been our go to beach treat when we head South every summer.  I am so excited to get this treat year round.  It was on super sale at Meijer this week so I currently have Cookies & Cream, The Great Divide and Banana Pudding in my freezer.  What's your favorite BB flavor??

Easter Egg Plates.
I just love these melamine plates from TJ Maxx.  I have two sets and we've all enjoyed eating off of them.  They're pretty and indestructible which works well for meals with kids.

Egg Carton Lunches.
We've enjoyed Easter lunches all week.  Super easy with just a few Easter touches.

Mama & Me.
We were at TJ Maxx recently and I was going to try on this pretty dress.  Olive requested to join me with a pretty dress of her own.  She's growing up and so much fun.  Sadly, neither dress worked out for us.  She also asked me what BFF means.  I told her best friends forever.  Her eyes lit up and she said, "Will you be my BFF?"  You bet!!

Fireman Fletcher.
We had the best time planning fireman birthday parties for Fletcher.

Fletcher turned 2 yesterday.
We had a great day despite it raining ALL day long.  We did his favorite things - played with his new toys, went to the children's museum, ate his favorite foods and had a great day.  We had planned to go out for mexican, but ended up making a yummy mexican dinner at home.

Last night rocking a one year old Fletcher to sleep.

He loved all of his gifts.

TWO of everything lunch.

Two cupcakes!  They turned out so cute... unlike my dinner.  I tried to recreate a favorite Mexican dish and it didn't turn out.  Win some.  Lose some.

He smiled all day long.  Excited to see what the coming year has in store for him!

New Book.
I Prayed For You by Jean Fischer.  I got this sweet book for my kids recently and I love the message that your mom is always praying for you.  This book would be perfect to give someone who's just had a baby, adopting, struggling with a journey of infertility or adding to their families.  I love the way the book is organized with text directed towards the child and then a prayer on each page.  The book gives you lots to discuss with your children and is very encouraging.  The illustrations are precious.  My kids loved this book and smiled throughout knowing all the different ways their mom is praying for them each day.  The story starts out with a new baby bear and finishes with the bear heading off to school and playing sports.  The book would be perfect for kids ages 0-10.
I was gifted this book from BookLook in exchange for an honest review of it.

In case you missed it on PDP...

  1. Sounds like you had a good spring break. It rain most of our spring break, but I was able to get some playdates in though. That is pretty sweet what Olive said about what is a bff, 4 year olds can be pretty cute sometimes.

  2. What a cute way to celebrate his birthday with a 2 of everything lunch. Love that! You are so creative! xoxo ERIN

  3. 2 of everything is an adorable idea for lunch!!! And I adore those egg plates! Have a wonderful Easter!

  4. Fletcher's little smile is just the cutest thing ever!

  5. Bluebell is the best! I'm partial to chocolate or the great divide. My husband grew up on old fashioned vanilla!

  6. When we were in Florida last year I found Bluebell ice cream and had to try it. We all agreed it was absolutely delicious! I would love to see it come all the way to Maine! What a great spring break you had!


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
