Life Lately...

I feel like the days are flying by lately ... maybe it's because Easter was early this year!? But it seems like in a flash St. Patrick's Day, Spring and Easter flew by. And now it's the last day of March!? Pretty soon we'll be onto spring vacations, Lila's 5th birthday, and summer fun! I'm excited because we're going into my favorite time of year for sure ... 

Here's what we've been up to lately ...

I got my hair colored last Friday and the way they styled it after made me feel like a Texas pageant queen. Curls for days! Hard to tell in this pic how "big" they were, but it was kind of fun for the night. 

For Easter we couldn't figure out how to do the timer setting on our phone cameras and have it in a place that worked to get our whole group in the picture so we whipped out my trusty selfie stick for the win! LOL! Here's the test shot of Grant and I - not bad!

I made a new "healthy" side dish for Easter - vegetable tian, which will be a great way to use up squash in the summertime! It also looks pretty which is always a plus ... 

My sister-in-law brought over some purple tulips and they look so springy and pretty on our table ... we have purple tulips that bloom in our yard every year too, but until then I love having fresh flowers inside. 

I picked up some new springy brights the other day - a new Lilly Pulitzer dress I wore for Easter dinner on the left and a bright blousey top on the right from LOFT. I love the springy colors!

Steak. Mmm ... I could eat grilled steak and veggies every night. I also roasted broccoli and peppers, which is one of my favorite ways to cook veggies. Toss with a tiny bit of olive oil and sea salt and roast at 400 for about 15 minutes. So good! 

Hope you're having a good week! 



  1. Those veggies look yum! And now I need to buy myself some tulips
