COLORFUL TODDLER EASTER BASKET IDEAS

COLORFUL TODDLER EASTER BASKET IDEAS

I know I say this before every holiday but how is Easter only a couple weeks away?! We have our first Easter egg hunt this upcoming weekend and I’m super excited for Piper to experience the fun. She was only a few months old last Easter so I kept her Easter basket pretty simple but now that she’s a full blown toddler, this Easter is extra special. Bed Bath & Beyond is my go-to when it comes to holidays and entertaining so when I was searching for what to add to her basket, I headed there first!

TODDLER SNACK TIME ON THE GO

TODDLER SNACK TIME ON THE GO

Now that Piper is a super active toddler, we’re constantly on the go! I love watching her explore, collect treasures (i.e. acorns and rocks) at the park, make animal noises at the zoo, and play with other kiddos during playdates! I know development is super important right now, so we’re doing our best to get her out of the house and experiencing new things—even if it’s exploring in our backyard.

WAY DAY PURCHASES FOR OUR NEW HOUSE!

WAY DAY PURCHASES FOR OUR NEW HOUSE!

I’ve mentioned this on instagram stories a few times but we are closing on our new house in a few days - yay! We have to paint and update a few things before we move in but I’m really excited to have more space and storage. We’ll use a lot of furniture we currently have but need some new pieces and light fixtures to make it our own. Today kicks off Way Day - the biggest sale of the year for Wayfair, All Modern, Joss & Main and Birch Lane plus free shipping on everything! You can’t beat the prices so I pulled the trigger on some items I’ve been eyeing. I’ve included links to all my purchases below. Happy shopping!

COLORFUL PICNIC MUST-HAVES

COLORFUL PICNIC MUST-HAVES

It’s the first day of spring, yay! This is by far my favorite season in Houston and I try to spend as much time as possible outdoors before the summer heat hits. We love packing up a picnic and heading to the park in the afternoons. I typically keep the food simple with an assortment of fruit, cheeses and crackers. I’ll put some flavored sparkling water and juice boxes for Piper in the cooler with an ice pack. Sometime I’ll even throw in some canned wine for the adults if it’s close to happy hour. :) It doesn’t need to be a big ordeal but I promise cute gear will make it feel festive. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite color picnic items below!

MY SECRET FOR A GREAT HAIR DAY WITH PANTENE INTENSE RESCUE SHOTS

MY SECRET FOR A GREAT HAIR DAY WITH PANTENE INTENSE RESCUE SHOTS

Last fall I shared about my postpartum hair changes and thankfully is has improved drastically! My hair loss has tapered and scalp is a lot healthier than it was six months ago. However, I’m convinced the texture of my hair is forever changed. I color my hair a few times a year and even though that’s not super frequent, my hair feels brittle and breaks all the time especially around my face. I always had super strong hair before Piper - it was down to my waist in my mid 20’s! But nowadays it feels damaged and coarse.

SURVIVING SPRING DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME WITH A TODDLER

SURVIVING SPRING DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME WITH A TODDLER

When Piper was four months old we started working with virtual sleep trainer, Eat Play Sleep and she was a game changer for us! Piper was your typical newborn, waking up every 3-4 hours for the first few months but month three was super tough. I’m convinced Piper was outsmarting us! She started waking up every 2 hours and all the iced coffee in the world couldn’t help me get through the day. I shared about my struggles on Instagram and someone recommended Tiffany with Eat Play Sleep and I reached out to her immediately.
