Happy Friday & early Mother’s Day!! Our weekend is full of Mother’s Day fun, the girls plan to wake up early with Brandon to make me breakfast in bed, something I look forward to every year, a stack of pancakes smothered in nutella accompanied by three kids also smothered in nutella! 😉 I am sure I have shared this before, but when we were kids, we always woke my mom up early with breakfast in bed. As we were scrambling around cooking and getting things ready, we said over and over “we will run in her room and yell happy mother’s day!” My youngest brother was maybe three at the time, and didn’t quite understand, so when we came through her door, he went running into her bed screaming “happy buttercake!!!!”
We are volunteering most of Saturday to deliver food to local families with an organization through our church, Harper & Ellie said they think the best idea would be to deliver hot chocolate to everyone because it’s the only drink you can have that comes with marshmallows in it. Then the rest of our time will be spent changing in and out of swimsuits to play in the sprinkler sixteen times, plastering & painting our bathroom walls, packing for our beach trip & hopefully sneaking out for a quick minute to get a pedicure with my mom!
What are your weekend plans, I would love to hear how you are celebrating!?
As a fun way to celebrate all of you beautiful mamas, we are excited to be teaming up with our friends at Freshly Picked for HUGE Mother’s Day Giveaway!!

Wishing you all an amazing weekend with your families, cheers to you and all you do, and thank you as always for following along!! XO
One of the things we love most about where we live is how many amazing parks are nearby. As soon as the weather gets warm here, we try to hit as many spots as possible before the heat becomes unbearable. We are a short drive to the mountains & lake, but have lots of little parks with waterfalls, creeks & trails to walk. The girls love to talk a big game about getting in the water, but usually just like to dip their toes once we actually get there. Playgrounds are fun but they get boring fast, I love finding spots like this that make us want to stay all day!
We partnered with Kohl’s for another look from their Jumping Beans line, this time the girls wore summery, super soft cotton dresses. I love the length of the dresses in this line, they are fitted at the top but also have the perfect amount of twirl to them. They’re also perfect to play around in, considering my kids insist on always wearing either dresses or skirts. Eloise picked the blue rainbow dress & the navy stripes were a perfect compliment, coordinating sibling styles are always my favorite!
Harper & I also coordinated our side pony tails, per her request, I will twin with as long as she will allow it! XO

With all of the end-of-school year happenings, dance class & swim lessons that seem to never end, we can say more now than ever that we are living for the weekends. During the week, I sometimes feel like I live in my car, picking up and dropping off and running an errand or two, I know you feel me. So when the weekend rolls around with weather this good, our girls are taking major advantage of having a grassy back yard. We have this old sprinkler from our last house that we mostly used to water the grass, but it puts out an insane amount of water & the girls are obsessed with it! I think it’s safe to say that no matter how busy a season of life, everyone should make time to run through a sprinkler. Or at least watch your kids do it (because damn it’s cold). The minute these girls wake up, they are rummaging around in their closets looking for swimsuits, they have had them on most mornings before they even come in our room & I have a feeling it’s going to be like this every day for the next few months!
Last week, I woke up to the sound of the girls whispering (in their swimsuits) in the kitchen. I came out to find them packing their own lunches for school. I opened Harper’s lunch box to find exactly what I normally pack them, a few slices of deli turkey, carrots + hummus, a string cheese & an applesauce. And in Ellie’s, a box cake mix, two candy canes, her milk and a baby bib. End of the year lazy lunch packing at it’s finest! 😉
Hope you are getting a little sunshine wherever you are, sprinkler weather is almost here to stay!
