Who else is so happy spring is finally here?! The weather here has been lovely. I hope your weather has been lovely, too!
The other day my hubby called me and asked if I wanted to plant some flowers near our front walkway. I headed to Home Depot and found some ranunculus. Ranunculus are my most favorite flowers EVER! They are sooooo pretty. They make me smile every time I walk by them! I hope they will survive our summers here.
We had a wonderful Easter! My kids enjoyed their Easter egg hunt. It was my little guy’s first hunt and he was very excited about all the “tandy.”
We went to church on Sunday morning in our new Easter outfits and then came home and made a yummy dinner of honey ham, crash hot potatoes, carrots, rolls, and my fave dark chocolate cake. My sister, her husband, and their new baby came to spend the afternoon with us. It was a beautiful Easter Sunday!
That’s my handome man. Everyone tell him to shave his beard! lol! He is going on a “Mountain Man Rendez-Vous” in June and he’s growing his beard until then. He’s gonna look scary by the time June comes around! I don’t think he’s ever let a beard grow out for that long!
My man grabbed the camera and got a shot of me with my kids. I rarely get to be in the photos since I’m the family photographer. By the way, isn’t my dress absolutely FABULOUS?! If you haven’t heard of JUNIEblake yet, you need to check them out! They make fashion-forward dresses that are modest. AND the designers of JUNIEblake live local, so I actually know one of the designers. Pretty darn cool. I adore this dress! This is the Ardene. It is SO comfy and covers everything I want covered, and it’s very flattering. Plus, it’s got my fave colors. It even covers my knees and that’s a pretty big deal. Almost every knee-length dress hits above my knees and it’s very frustrating! Tall girl problems. *sigh*
Now we’re prepping for our trip to DISNEYLAND! We’re going near the end of the month and I think I’m just as excited as my 5-year-old…. perhaps MORE excited than her. This will be our FIRST real family vacation. My daughter is at the perfect age for it and she talks about it every day. She wants to meet the princesses and Flynn Rider. I bought her 2 princess dresses to wear in the park. I just want it to be the most magical experience for her because the next time we go, she’ll likely be at an age where it’s not quite as magical.
We made a fun countdown Mickey Mouse chain so she can always see how much time we’ve got left until our trip. She loves taking off a link of the chain each morning and counting the remaining links.
I wish this was my original idea, but it’s not. I got the idea from here.
I also made a ruffled Minnie Mouse tee for her for the trip! A tee shirt + pre-made ruffle from Walmart’s sewing section + some Fabric Fusion glue were all I needed! I stole the idea from here.
I can’t wait to share our trip with you! What are you doing this spring?
