We had a great very low key Easter weekend. My sister, husband, and my nephew came down on Saturday and spent the night. After we got the kids to bed we had a big fire in our fire pit. The weather was perfect for it and it was fun to enjoy some drinks and sit outside by a fire.
On Sunday morning we hosted Easter brunch for my parents and sister and her family. It was nice and low key.
This was my brunch table setting using my new plates from Pottery Barn.
We managed to get one semi decent family photo and I got a few decent ones of the boys. I think I've finally come to terms with the fact that at this stage in life I'm not going to get perfect smiling sitting still boys for photos but that's ok!
I decided on this BCBGeneration Blouson Dress and it was perfect!
We leave for Rosemary beach in 4.5 weeks which means it's time to get my act together in the diet department and the packing/organization department. I'm so excited for our trip and looking forward to exploring the area.
My kids are pretty set for bathing suits but Miller just had a huge growth spurt so I'm going to need some new shorts and shirts for him. Miller is tall but still so skinny, he's only 27lbs! So I'm looking for shorts that are long enough with an adjustable waist. So far I'm thinking these J.Crew Factory ones might work. They appear long and have an adjustable waist which so many of the cheaper brands do not. Has anyone tried these?
Matthew got his first big head scrap over the weekend. It looks worse than it is but he fell head first out of our new sandbox. It's mostly just a surface scratch but I feel so bad for the kid.
We are meeting with a contractor tonight to discuss out kitchen and first floor renovations!! I am so excited to get started and I promise to do a much better job sharing our progress this time around.
I can't wait to fill you all in once we start making decisions.
Hope you all have a great rest of the week and I promise we'll have Thoughts for Thursday back up tomorrow.
