Pool Themed Easter Basket Ideas

My boys absolutely love being outside. This year with us being home a lot their easter basket is dedicated to all things pool (and beach) if we end up going this summer. I've been doing themed baskets since the boys were born, and this is definitely one of my favorites. In the middle of all that's going on, they are going to love the little goodies the Easter Bunny snuck in the basket. I hope you find this helpful in finding gifts for your this Easter.

The 12 Days of Easter


March was both the longest and the shortest month ever. The days all ran in together and we kinda just survived through this whole pandemic--only to be told that we will have to do it all over again in April. But hey, I don't know about you but I've been training for this the last two and a half weeks. I know what my kids need daily, and its routine mixed with a little excitement. Ever morning leading up to Easter, I will have an egg hidden somewhere in the house that will have a fun activity for the day. 

Easter Traditions for your Family with HoneyBaked Ham

It's a strange start to 2020. I've seen people decorate for Christmas in March. What I don't understand is why aren't we decorating for Easter? I love decorating for Easter--it's such a fresh start to one of my favorite seasons. The bright colors, table set with beautiful flowers and gorgeous eggs, all ready for a delicious dinner together.

Bee-Themed First Birthday Party

When you have a baby of your own you know you’re going to love them. You grew them, thought about them day in and day out, planned for them—but nothing can really prepare you to love a niece or a nephew. 


I’m sure you’ve all seen the picture of me bawling when she was born—and I’m not sure if it was exhaustion or if it was truly the moment I fell in love with my niece. Watching her grow over the past year has been amazing, I’m so blessed to live so close to her and that my sister lends her to me every so often. Watching these boys with their Win girl just makes my heart so happy and I can’t wait to see them grow up together. Win, Fred, Winifred, Winnie, Elowyn Adair—you are so loved. With that I present to you a Bee-Themed First Birthday for our favorite girl.

Why a Disney Cruise with a Toddler is the Best Vacation

If you ask me what my favorite vacation is with my family it will be a Disney cruise hands down.

I enjoy the ease of the trip, I love that dinner is planned, we visit multiple vacation spots on one trip, and the list goes on. So many of my friends are worried about taking their toddler on a cruise--they've heard you can't do pools, or they can't do the kids club, etc. Although they may be true, I promise you they (or you) won't miss it. I'm going to share about our Disney Dream cruise with our 2.5 and almost 5 year old and why this will be a yearly vacation spot for many years to come.
