Happy Friday!!

Happy Friday to you!!  Our week went a little different than I had planned...

We ended up having to cancel plans several days because my kids weren't feeling well.  Fevers early in the week, colds and yuck.  So we had a low key week at home preparing to celebrate Fletcher's first birthday.  We ran some errands, worked on some DIY projects and stayed in our pjs a lot.  We are headed to see family this weekend to celebrate our sweet little guy with a dinomite dinosaur party theme.  It should be a blast :)

I was shopping at Sams this week and was checking out all of their summer/patio/garden aisles.  I came across their outdoor rugs and saw these cute outdoor rugs on clearance for under $10!!  They had a few different designs and I quickly scooped up this one for our deck.  It's so bright and cheery.  I couldn't believe the price especially since I'd been shopping on Amazon and could find one I loved for under $20.  Hurry to Sams ASAP!!

I've been on a baby spinach kick lately for my salads.  It holds up so well in the fridge all week long and doesn't wilt/go bad nearly as quickly as mixed greens do.  I also picked up some mini cucumbers and I loved how quickly they were to slice up for snacks or for a salad.
We ate BLACK BEAN QUESADILLAS this week and they were SO GOOD!  Stay tuned for that recipe because we've already had them 2-3 times since I first made them.

I love the way the calendar worked out this year for Spring holidays.  I feel like everything has gotten plenty of time and attention since they were so spread out.  We are loving doing all things Spring and Easter right now.  Olive helped me decorate for Easter so our house looks really fun.  I need to snap some pictures to share with you.  For now I'll leave you with this bunny family portrait that they insisted be taken :)

My etsy shop has been restocked and updated for Spring!!  I love all of the blooms for Spring.  Come check it out and see if you can find some new accessories to update your wardrobe for Spring.

Fletcher is getting so brave and it kind of scares me!!    He's taking a few steps at a time, going up and down a few steps, climbing everything and basically being a danger to himself.  We are all on high alert when he's awake :)  He got some big sister scooter time when she was distracted doing something else!  He was thrilled!

 Olive's signature bob got an update this week!  It was time for a trim so I got to chopping.  She's got straight hair that's easy to cut at home.  We chopped and then she requested some curls.  It looks great for Spring!!

  3. Hope your kids are feeling better, and have a great time this weekend! Love that rug - I really need to get s a Sam's membership!!! Little Olive's hair cut is so cute - good job, Mama!

  4. I am so impressed that you cut Olive's hair. I wish I could cut Connor's. It would save money and we could do it easily from home. But I lack the skills.

  5. LOVE the new rug! I want to add one to our deck and patio area and this one is so fun and bright! Perfect for summer :) How does Olive like the scooter? We are looking at the same one for our little guy!

  6. I've been using spinach to add some green to my scrambled eggs in the morning! It's my go-to add in because it is one that holds up all week like you said. Love that rug! You should stop by my blog and check out the Easter Craft I posted for the kids! It's so fun!

  7. LOVE that rug too! And your food looks sooo tasty. Have a happy Friday! :)

  9. That salad looks absolutely delicious! That rug is too cute!

  10. How did I not know you had an Etsy shop?! That rug is adorable!

  11. Yay for getting a great deal on a new rug. I need a new one for my front porch. Sorry your family has been sick this week - I hope this weekend is great and the party is lots of fun!


  12. That rug is awesome! Love it! And you cut Olive's hair? Nice! I have cut Emmy's bangs, but I'm scared to do much else. Have a great weekend and a super fun party!

  13. I have to check out your Etsy shop! Those earrings are so cute!

  14. Love the new haircut, O!

    Can't wait for the black bean recipe- I would love to give that a try!

  15. This post is packed FULL of things I want to chat with you about! <3 I've been on a cucumber kick with my salads this week too. One night I just had cucumbers with cherry tomatoes and some balsamic dressing. I get tired of munching on lettuce so that was a nice change! :) Can't wait for your black bean quesadilla recipe - I love black beans!

    Olive looks absolutely precious in her curly bob!! That cut is perfect for her.

    Love your outdoor rug - if I had a Sams card, I would have definitely grabbed one. That's a killer price!

    I'm heading over now to visit your Etsy shop! Have a lovely weekend, hope everyone stays well for you!

  16. I need to check out Sam's for those rugs. And the quesadillas look delicious!

  17. You have an Etsy shop?!?! How did I not know about this.

    Loving Olive's signature bob. Marissa has been talking a lot about bobbing all of her hair off lately and it is kind of making me sad. She hasn't had long hair in forever. I always love stopping by here and getting a dose of cheer. Hope you had a great weekend!

  18. You are the second blogger who mentioned clearance rugs at Sam's. I need to stop by to get one before we starting showing our house.


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