Spring Five Favorites






Since Spring is officially here I thought I would spruce up the house with pretty springy flowers. Tulips and hydrangeas are some of my favorites. I bought  two big bouquets of white and blue hydrangeas over the weekend and unfortunately this small stem is all that remains. The vase is re-purposed from one of my wedding showers. I think the green and white ribbons add a cute touch.



Nothing says spring like some jelly beans and these sparkly Jelly Belly beans are so pretty. They are the Disney Princess edition ones and they are incredibly hard to find. I found them in the Easter section at Target.



Even though Elin has tons of books, I can’t stop buying them. Easter books are especially precious and I found these two adorable books this week.  The illustrations are gorgeous! I haven’t read them to her yet, but  looking through them quickly, they look like they will be so cute.



I about died when I saw this little outdoor furniture set for kids at Costco! I think I need to run back and get it for Elin. I am hoping it’s still there! I should have never passed on something that was chevron patterned for kids!



Last but certainly not least, my nephew Ethan is turning 9 in a few short days! How he can possibly be 9 I do not know! He is so smart and the best little athlete I know.  He is the best baseball and basketball player and he makes everyone so proud.

Easter Basket Stuffers

Easter is on my mind and I have been loving all the pastel colored decorations and flowers in the stores. I noticed that Target had an amazing selection of easter basket stuffers so I went ahead and started shopping before they ran out.


Elin is not into candy or sweets yet so most of her basket is dedicated to toys and books. Books and coloring books are always a good item for the back of the basket since they are generally taller. The Easter section also had some cute knob puzzles, bath toys, play jewelry, play-doh, and chapstick sets.

Here is a closer look at some of the Minnie Mouse items. They had a lot of Minnie Mouse, Sofia the First, and Disney Princess stuff. For the Minnie Mouse stuff, I got the play jewelry set, the mini magna doodle, a camera view finder and  a light up wand. I know Elin will be so excited to see all the Minnie themed items.


I also found some great stuffers at Hobby Lobby. A coloring book, a bouncing ball, a wind up bunny, a chick that makes  chirping noises, and some fun little plates. The plates are not for her basket, but to enjoy now.


I went ahead and assembled everything in her basket to see where I was, and I already over-bought and couldn’t fit everything in! It’s going to be hard not to purchase anything else the rest of the season. I might have to make adjustments if I find something else too cute to pass up.
