Spring is here!

Happy Monday, and Happy Spring! I'm so glad spring is finally here. Not that it helped our weather this weekend, but it means we're closer to summer! I treated myself with a pretty $6 bouquet from Whole Foods to celebrate. 

We had a nice little weekend mostly at home. Saturday morning we kicked off with a little breakfast and tea. Don't all toddlers drink tea out of cups and saucers? So very British of us (and with a side of goldfish no doubt, haha!)

We dropped Grant off to have some guy time at a beer festival and headed out on our way to run a few errands. Cheese! 

Apparently it was our Whole Foods' "birthday" so they were passing out fun hats, which they kids naturally couldn't get enough of. Now I need to figure out how to throw them away without the kids noticing ... haha.

Saturday night I made one of my favorite "one pot" meals - grilled chicken, artichoke hearts, spinach, roasted cherry tomatoes and garlic with a few drizzles of balsamic and olive oil and topped with feta. Easy and delish. 

Sunday we lounged around and the kids both slept in until 8:30! Yes! After breakfast we decided to decorate Easter Eggs the old fashioned way! I saw the kits at the store but realized it was really easy to do yourself. Such a fun and festive little craft! 

Hope you had a great weekend!!



  1. Omg, how adorable do they look in those matching hats?! Too cute! Looks like you had such a fun weekend and per usual, that dinner looks awesome!

  2. That One pot meal sounds delicious! Look at those cute kiddies in their hats and color in those eggs, so fun!! Happy Monday gorgeous!!

  3. gorgeous bouquet! Sophie really just started drinking out of a cup! I'm so proud of her, we didn't even show her, she just started doing it, that and pouring her water into a cup. It's her new thing. Looks like a delicious meal. As for the hats, they would just disappear after naptime started or bedtime. That's when we packed up Sophie's toys and I don't think she's entirely realized half of her toys are least I think...
