Happy Friday friends! We have had a week full of snow and cold, but mother nature was nice enough to throw in some sunny days to at least lift our spirits a bit that way. Of course I wouldn’t be lying if I said I wasn’t ridiculously jealous of everyone out east. I heard temps in the 60s and 70s!? I will take that over our -17 wind chill, thank you very much.
While it may not feel like spring here just yet, I have been doing all of the spring prep around here lately and am getting in the spirit. Isn’t it funny how with every new season we are always ready? This time of year, I just swoon over anything pastel, cheerful, and fresh. The heart knows what it wants!
1. All of the Spring Fashion
I have officially reached that point in winter where I am all about the pretty pastel colors. I grabbed my favorite tunic in a pretty yellow color this week, and I now own it in SIX colors. If that doesn’t speak true love, I don’t know what does! Colors go in and out of stock often, so if you are interested in one check back and refresh the page, there are always new colors and sizes that appear! I also used my reward points to purchase these lavender rockstar jeans. I love the pretty pink color too, I have held off so far because the distressing (which I love) makes them a no-go for work. And after being on the hunt for literally two years, I finally found a pair of pale yellow chinos that come in TALL! Of course, I am cheap and am waiting for at least some free shipping to come to play. Do any of you have the anthro chinos? I have no idea how they fit or what size to order!
2. Cute Party Shop
I just discovered Glitter Party Co., and if you are planning any sort of party, for little ones, a bridal shower, baby shower, anything, she makes the most adorable banners, cupcake toppers, cake toppers, and random décor. I have some spring garland coming my way, and she is making a custom cake topper for a shower I am hosting. I am already dreaming up ideas for things I can have her create-she does such amazing work!
3. DIY Body Wash
Since we have started using essential oils more regularly in our home, I have been having so much fun determining what we can switch out. There are body washes and bar soaps that you can purchase, but being as frugal as I am I never consider myself above trying to see if I can create a DIY for my changes. I purchased these bottles in a two pack, and then a few ingredients you can pick up right in Target or your health foods store to complete. You can head over to this video to watch and see how I made it! The best part is that you can choose any scent you want. I adore the smell of eucalyptus, especially in the shower, so I used eucalyptus and spearmint and am hooked!
4. Fun Toddler Styles
I have surprised myself by not buying the boys many clothes over the past few months. I have such an abundance of hand me downs that it sometimes makes it hard to justify buying many new things for Lincoln (second child problems, I know). His closet is honestly overflowing with items, but I still feel the need to buy him special new items now and again that are brand spanking new and just for him. I saw this fun monster sweatshirt and knew it would be perfect for my little monster. You guys, he about dies when he gets to zip and unzip the mouth on it! I also snagged him this cute pair of jeans from Old Navy, they are super stretchy which is perfect for active little ones. And one of my all time favorite items for my boys has been these cream colored jeans. They are seriously SO cute, and the color makes them work for dressier occasions, too. In fact, Jackson wore them for Easter a few years ago!
And speaking of Easter, Old Navy has their pop of color khakis back. And this obnoxious shirt actually exists and is perfect. You’re welcome.
5. New Mattress
Earlier this week I shared our review of the new Leesa mattress we got last month. It was originally intended for Lincoln, but we got cold feet with transitioning him from his crib and Jackson immediately claimed the mattress for himself. Woops. Jackson LOVES it though. Be sure to head over and read the full review; I have a great promo code if you are in the market for a new mattress! I never knew how much we could love memory foam!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. We are in for some more snow, but at least it will be in the 30s! Fingers are crossed we get in one more sledding day!
