{Weekly Wins}: Hoppin' into Easter

Happy Friday, friends! This week has gone by in a flash (as any week you're not working tends to go). Definitely a lot different than Spring Breaks in the past where we would travel, or I'd just be lazy through the week. A little one changes things, but it's been a lot of fun to get to spend this extra time together!

Some wins for the week (get ready for Ella overload!):

~Not working all week is always a win! Only checked work email twice, too.

~Getting to do playdates with friends we normally don't get to see during the week! Ella and I went to a local play gym with our friends. She was definitely in awe of everything around her and took a while to start exploring, but it was the perfect place to spend our afternoon!
~HomeGoods finds! Finally found the cutest little Spring wreath for our front door, and an adorable Easter basket for Ella!
They're little imitation freesia, which I loooooove
~Twinning with my little love (inadvertently, which must mean we spent a lot of time together this week haha)
inverse twinning
~Warmer weather this week, allowing us to take advantage of the outdoors, and our playground! 
~My SIL, MIL and niece are here until tomorrow morning. They got in last night and we're gonna soak up the time together--maybe make our way into the city today if it doesn't rain. It's always fun when these guys come down:

~My friend Kelly came by Wednesday afternoon for a few hours. It was really nice to just relax and chat, just the two of us (well, and Ella haha). Girl time for the win!

~Lots of time playing with these two (and watching their love for each other grow)
~Hitting the bottle....jk jk jk, but this one was too funny not to share. Definitely going to have to baby proof the liquor cabinet because this one pulled out the spiced rum, all on her own...
~As if I haven't Ella-overloaded you already (sorry, I'm not that sorry), today our little bear is 11 months old! I can't even believe that in a month, she will be one. This is by far the fastest year of my life, and one of the most amazing, fun, exhausting and loving, too. Time please slow down!!!
I'm off to spend time with the fam, and celebrate Ella's first Easter!
Hoping your week was filled with lots of wins this week!


  1. That looks like the best week! These pictures are the cutest and that picture of her and the rum may be an insight to college years hahaha!! Enjoy your weekend!
