I love Easter! Celebrating Christ’s risen is something I try to focus on all year, but this day in particular is always so special. I also love the idea of Easter baskets and playing the Easter bunny with my kids. Seeing their little faces light up is so sweet and special. I normally like to try and stick with a theme, but this year I am adding a few essentials that my kids need along with things like chalk, new crayons, etc. They each need different things, so they will be getting a good mixture of outdoor things, art supplies and essentials. I’m breaking down my Easter basket ideas for you below:
I can’t believe Easter is right around the corner! It is sneaking up on me, so I thought I would round up a few Easter dresses as I am perusing for my own Easter dress! I love buying the kids and myself a new spring outfit for Easter every year. It is a tradition and a good excuse to grab a new spring dress for the season. This year, I went pretty traditional with my kid’s outfits and ordered them from Smocked Auctions (one of my favorites for smocked clothing). I have not decided what I am going to wear yet, but I will definitely be coming back to this post for some inspo!
Happy Monday, friends! It’s been a while since I did a little life update, so I thought today would be appropriate after our big Easter weekend! Our weekends seem to be filling up these days. I can still remember when we looked forward to the weekends because we could rest, hang out with friends, catch up on cleaning, etc. Now, I feel like our weekends are busier than our weeks. Catch up on laundry? That’s a thing of the past. BUT… these little babes of mine make it all worth it! Our Easter weekend was no exception. We had so much going on, but it was all so good and honestly, I just feel so beyond blessed to get to spend my life with these babies and my best friend! It’s always good even when it’s not. You know what I mean?
Is anyone else super last minute with their Easter baskets this year? Thank goodness for Amazon Prime! Am I right? Whatever did we do before it? I’m sharing a few things that I ordered for my littles that are really great things to put in any young kid’s basket. They are pretty much my “easter basket staples” every year. In addition to these, I add one or two of my kid’s favorite snacks and one or two things they need (like a sippy cup, pacifiers, socks, underwear, tees, etc.) It makes a pretty good basket. Plus, it really doesn’t take much to please kids. Bubbles alone would do the trick for my babies.
Easter is nearly a week away, so if you haven’t ordered your easter dress yet, you definitely need to. Like, today! I ordered a few dresses to try on for you guys and shot some videos (check out my Insta-stories) and took these photos to share them with y’all! They are all so beautiful and I feel like these photos don’t do them justice. They are all so feminine and beautiful. I think these dresses would work for Easter, weddings, baby showers, church, and graduations! They are perfect dresses to carry you through spring and summer. I think any one of these would make a perfect easter dress!
Easter Dress Try-On:
It is so hard to believe we are less than a month away from Easter! One of my favorite traditions in to buy new Easter dresses for Sophie and myself. I don’t do it every year, but I enjoy picking out my babies’ outfits and occasionally a dress for myself. I like to find a dress that I can wear all spring and summer so that I can get a lot of wear out of it. I have been searching through tons of retailers and have picked some of my favorite Easter dresses at all price points.
This weekend was the first weekend I have really taken a break from the blogging world since Christmas, and it was much-needed. I honestly don’t remember the last day I took “off.” Not good, Logan. Not good. Spending time with my family without worrying about social media or emails, etc. was so freeing and I feel refreshed today. Our Easter weekend began with a little bit of cleaning and laundry because I was way behind (let’s be honest, I always am) and then a birthday party at the zoo for a sweet friend of ours.
Easter is next weekend. It really snuck up on me this year. I have not hardly bought anything for the kid’s Easter baskets, so I really need to jump on that like, today. I did purchase mine and Sophie’s Easter Dresses and the boy’s outfits, so that much is done. Easter is one of my favorite holidays because of it’s religious aspects, but also because we get together with family and friends and enjoy each other’s company and good food. I also love holidays with the kids because they get so excited over every little thing. Life really is better when you look through your children’s eyes.
I can’t believe Easter is already right around the corner and I am already brainstorming Easter basket ideas for my babies! This year seems to be going by in the blink of an eye. Maybe it’s just me? We have still been in our newborn, “I have three under three” phase over here, so excuse me if I sound a little crazy. #sleepdeprived It is so hard to decide what to put in them this year. Do I want to do a theme, or just fill it with random things that they need? So, come brainstorm with me…
This year, it rained most of the day on Easter, so we scheduled our egg hunt for Saturday! It was so laid back and nice. We had a huge shrimp boil and ate outside after the kids finished hunting eggs and our hearts and bellies were very happy.
