Favorite Wears: Vintage-Inspired Tees

 

 
One of my favorite clothing pieces lately (besides sneakers) has been soft, vintage-inspired tees.  I wear them to bed, to work out and with skirts. Talk about versatile. I especially love ones that support local artists, charities, fundraisers, etc.  

I actually have this KC Dream tee in a matching kiddo size for Nora (us matching here), and I love getting to match with her (sometimes). ;) She thinks it's pretty cool when I wear the same top as her. She does this pretty funny growl-laugh when I am in this tee, and then goes digging in her own drawer for her own. <3

I know this won't last long, and I also don't want to try to match my kid too much too often, but on the rare occasions it works out, it's pretty cute.

Easter Weekend Recap


 
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!  We had a great weekend because my sister was in town!  It was packed full of fun, lots of outdoor time, eating out at restaurants (which is Nora's favorite thing) and Easter egg hunts. Over the last week, I think the kids went on 5 egg hunts. And the opening of each egg was the.most.exciting.thing.ever.  I think Nora learned that the more excited she got, the more likely she was going to get to look for more eggs (b/c it was so fun for us adults to watch!).

I filled their eggs with a mix of money (for their piggy banks), shopkins, jelly beans, and chocolate kisses!  I think Nora was most excited about the money... ;) . In their Easter baskets, I got them - I mean, the Easter bunny got them, books, stickers, activity kits and hopping/windup animals. Nora got a doll for the pool/bath and Liam got legos.  They both seemed pretty happy with their baskets.

Overall, these chickens kept us all on our toes this weekend. I hope yours was wonderful!

Mamas & Minis Collective: 6 Mother's Day Activities! (+ GIVEAWAY)



This Mother's Day will be my very first one without my babies!!!  It's been an annual tradition to go to brunch with my own mama and my babies (the dudes, too), and then spend the day outside in some way or another. But this year, I'll be at the end of my Iceland/Paris vacation.  I'm super excited about the trip, of course, but will be looking to make up this special day the next weekend. 
Here are a few ideas of things you can do on Mother's Day with your kiddos:
1. Go on a walk. This is the perfect time of year to adventure around your neighborhood or favorite park/walking trail to look for pretty flowers (or sticks, if you are my kids). I love finding pretty floral trees in our neighborhood right now, and enjoying this weather.

2. Host a family-friendly Mother's Day brunch (and if your lucky, your man friends will do most of the heavy lifting, or you could even cater!).  I love getting together with my best friends and their littles to spend time all together. Kids can play, moms and catch up, dads can hang. (or go out to brunch - and if you are in Kansas City, this is our favorite place & way to get there!)

3. Get away with some of your other mama-friends for a girls only lunch or happy hour.  Those moments are all to rare, and as much as I love being with my kids, it's nice to have one on one time with the girls!  If you are in Kansas City, check out Stock Hill Grill!  I had a wonderful time recently with friends there, as seen here

4. Go for a workout - maybe even try something new! I tried pilates on a reformer not too long ago, and have loved it since! I love trying new things, because you never know what you'll fall in love with! Plus, getting a good workout feels good and is good for ya!

5. Go to the spa (or at least ask for a gift card/service as a gift for later)!  Taking time to take care of yourself (including your skin!) is SO important. Facials and massages are my favorite - but with warmer temps and sandals season creeping in, I probably need a major pedi!

6.  Go strawberry picking! My kids can't wait to go back this year already. This is a great way to get outside, learn about food and then come home and make something (or just eat!) sweet. :)
