Happy Saturday! I hope you all had a great week! I turned 44 on Thursday and according to Kole that’s great because I’m half way to 88. Score! Gotta love kids for keeping it real and always telling you exactly what you want to hear right? Despite Kole’s grim observation I had a fabulous few days. :) Very spoiled by my sweet family and friends. Birthdays always leave me feeling so full of gratitude for all of the wonderful people in my life. They also leave me tired because that much social interaction just wears me right out!
I am half way to 88 you know. ;)
We snapped these pictures quick on my birthday but Kole wasn’t home with us (he’s the only one who leaves the house for school each day!) so below is a pic with him from last year.
Can’t leave out my little buddy. :)
Leaving an outdoor dinner with some close friends.. it was so fun catching up with everyone! On a sidenote.. my cute friend Meghann opened up a new cookie store (BATCH and BOX) and her cookies are to die for! Seriously the best cookies! You can order them on-line for yourself or have them sent to someone as a gift.. so delicious! I would show you a pic of the cookies but we all devoured them too quick before I could even take one. I just wanted to share if you know someone who loves cookies or if you need a fun gift idea or just want to let someone know you are thinking about them. We love them at our house!
Thanks to everyone who reached out on IG with sweet birthday wishes! When I say I’m grateful for all of the wonderful people in my life I hope you all know that includes you. I have no doubt we would all be besties if we lived close! We would talk all day about organizing and decorating and share favorite Spring tops.
Oh wait.. we already do that. :)
Speaking of decorating.. Easter is fast approaching! So is warmer weather. YEA. I’m so ready for it this year! Last year I set this simple tablescape for Easter dinner since it was just the 5 of us.
The kids loved it and I made a mental note to get my Easter stuff out earlier this year!
So I did. :) You’ve all seen most of these items because it’s all stuff I’ve had for years but still so fun to pull it out!
I love hanging eggs on faux branches! You can enjoy them for a while and then take the eggs off after Ester and still leave the flowers up for Spring.
Eggs in a pretty basket is always simple Easter decor and of course I have to have some Easter candy out somewhere. It’s my absolute favorite! Especially the Chicks Ducks and Bunnies. And don’t get me started on Cadbury Eggs. I try so hard to resist those in the grocery store because if they are in the house they won’t last a day!
Entry is feeling festive!
My entry throw is a long time favorite for Spring/Summer from Serena and Lily. They are having their Spring design event btw and everything is 20% off right now with code NEWLEAF! The best time to pick something up at S & L. I adore that store but it’s a little pricey so I always wait for one of the few 20% off sales they have. I have all of my favorites linked HERE!
I rounded up some fun Easter decor below! I just got these plates for my birthday and they are beautiful! These stunning chargers are on my wish list. And seriously.. the bunny mat! Dying over that one.
Ok.. not finished yet.. this post is turning into a book! I wanted to share a few cute tops I’ve been wearing and loving lately before they sell out!
Our weather has been tricking us lately.. nice and sunny and a hint of Spring one day and then back to cold! I love the bright, happy colors in this sweater for cooler days. Cute, comfortable and a perfect length. You know how I feel about Madewell and on sale for just $31!
I’ve been wearing this crop henley top over and over and over! Just $35 and it is the perfect top to toss on over your workout clothes! I’m debating getting another color. So soft and comfortable!
I wanted to show the side view because it’s not fitted and a little copped but perfect with high waist leggings. I love the sleeves! My girls both want to borrow it and that’s always how I know I’ve found a winner.. ha. It runs a little big so I would order one size down (I’m wearing the xxs.)
Isn’t this ruffle blouse pretty!? Beautiful neck and sleeves. I love it for Spring! This will go fast so don’t wait if you want it!
This is the cute top I was wearing on my birthday.. another recent favorite! I love it more casual with jeans but it’s also cute tucked in with a black pencil skirt and heels.
The color and ruffle sleeves are such a cute combo! I’ve mentioned this before but CeCe tops are some of my favorites! Especially for Spring/Summer.
Another CeCe top I’m loving! The sleeves on this hang so beautifully.. every time I wear it I get compliments!
And last but not least this cute graphic tee sold out but I’m sharing it because Lucky has so many cute tees in right now! Below are a few favorites. I’ve always really liked Lucky brand tees. Stylish, fun and they are a great fit!
And that’s a wrap for today! I’ll be back to talk all things kitchen organization for next week! I’m organizing my messy laundry room today. I won’t have it done in time to share for laundry week but I am determined to have it organized by the end of the day! I need these deadlines! Life always gets in the way and they force me to just prioritize it and get it done. I hope you’re if you’re following along with my organizing challenge you are feeling the same and seeing some progress! Something is always better than nothing right!? We’ve got this. :) Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
