Last weekend my friend Allison & I took our kids to Goodale Park. It was good in that we got some gorgeous pictures with the magnolias blooming like mad. It was bad because the kids hadn't napped. They ran around, totally not listening, eating macaroons for dinner and lying face down on the ground screaming bloody murder when it was time to go. That was my kid. It's a miracle we survived!! This was also the day I tried my first ever Dutch braid!!! Super perfect for chasing kiddos on a windy, park day!!! P.S Dance your way into the weekend w a little Grateful Dead Sugar Magnolia!!!!

Happy Birthday baby doll. We love you so much. You started school this year & absolutely love it. We've been watching lots of Disney movies together & your saving all the pennies in your piggy bank to go to Disney World. You sleep with a different stuffed toy every nite. Sometimes it's Kitty or Icy, other nites it might be Belle or Ariel. Everyday you pick out your outfit &it usually includes a tutu. You've been asking to go back to ballet class. You weigh 30 lbs & wear a 4t. You went through a phase complaining of stomach pains & having tons of nite terrors. We took you off dairy & it really seems to have helped!!!! You still complain of your knees hurting but I think those are growing pains. I love hanging out with you at Barnes & Noble or the American Girl store. You are my tiny shadow and for the most part I love it. The other nite I got frustrated (smothered?) & yelled at you. Five minutes later you were hugging me, telling me I was the best mom ever. Thank you for loving me like that. It's the best thing in the world.

Please excuse my PALE white legs. Sadly my days of tanning are long over. On the other hand my romper wearing days may have just started, unless you count the sailor outfit I wore for my 7th birthday!!! I scored this beauty on clearance a few weeks ago & couldn't wait to bust it out. I actually found another romper at the thrift store today. I thought it was a shirt, which doesn't bode well for covering much skin. I totally bought it anyway. It's vintage + couldn't resist!! Maybe I'll wear it as a swimsuit, but never get in the water. Perfect!
I'm heading to Detroit for work tomorrow & haven't even started getting anything together. It's already way past my bed time...Night Night..xoxo

The Spring time months are my favorite, mostly because these cuties have birthdays. Wes turned two & Mia turns four. Today we celebrated with a joint dinosaur birthday bash. We dug for salt dough fossils, ate Grandma Tachee's famous quiche, pinned the party hat on T-Rex and blew tons of bubbles. Of course we ate LOTS of cake. There may also have been mimosa's & chocolate tequila involved. Thanks Dad!!!! My kids are loved spoiled beyond belief. Thank you, thank you to our awesome friends & family for helping us make the most amazing memories!

Certain dresses aren't cut to flatter every body shape. Sometimes they're too young others show too much skin. Whatever the reason, don't give up if you LOVE the skirt!!! I found this dress at the thrift store for $3. Totally not right on top, totally awesome on the bottom. Now comes my favorite trick. A shirt over the unflattering top & let the adorable skirt shine!!! Bring on the warm weather & bare legs!!!! Yahhhhhhhhhhhhhoooooo! P.S I'm obsessed with my new Urban Decay Naked concealer. And Prada Candy? Heaven.

We've started a weekend tradition, having our friends, Allison, Brooks & Rory over for a breakfast play date. Today we had cinnamon rolls, made salt dough fossils for the upcoming dino bday & baked an edible batch of banana bread. If you follow us on ig you may have seen the non-edible version from earlier in the week. I forgot to add the flour. After naps we found a new park where daddy met us after work. When we got home the kids followed a trail of eggs & found the Easter bunny finally made it to our house!!!! We LOVE Spring!!!
