Outfit Planning for Disneyland



We're planning to go to Disneyland soon for the boys very FIRST trip! I'm both excited and terrified at the prospect! ;) 

First, we're driving down, which is about an 8+ hour drive! I grew up 20 minutes from Disney, so making a trip was never a big deal. Luckily, we still have family and friends that live nearby, so that's one less thing to worry about! We're planning on just going for one day...when the boys get older, we can see about making a two-day trip and including California Adventureland. 

Second, it's supposed to be almost 90 degrees, which sounds like a nice reprieve from our cold Tahoe weather, but yikes! 90 is hot! So we'll be packing lots of sunscreen, maybe this brand. Also bringing lots of water {we have the the Klean Kanteens for the boys!} and the BOB stroller so Wyatt has some shade {and can hopefully nap!}. 

Third, I just hope the boys enjoy it...I am sure it will be overwhelming but hoping the park will be more on the quiet side {if that's even a thing anymore} and that we get to hit up all the fun rides. Do you think they're too young for Pirates of the Caribbean?! ;)

I am not sure what I'll wear, but I just ordered these shorts and have the sneakers above, so we'll see what ends up working out. I also adore this shirt, so cute for a vacation!

So have you been to Disneyland yet with the kids? Any tips? I'd love to hear!

Jonesing for J.Crew


There are SO many cute things at J.Crew right now...like they are really speaking my language! Plus, I've never met a floral and striped combo I didn't like. Let's see what I mean...


I adore this combo--these shorts are so flattering and that blouse will work from spring, summer and into fall with the right accessories!


Gah, I could just die over that skirt {where OH where is it?!} and the striped/floral combo on top.


I mean, are you getting the theme? I think I like these shorts even better!


I'm always down for a cheeky shirt and tailored pants.


And this swimsuit could not be any more adorable!

Happy Weekend!

Our Easter 2017


Oh Easter! We had such a fun {albeit very busy} day filled with way too many sweets and lots of egg hunting! Here's a quick recap:


I made these carrot cupcakes and they were delicious!


I wore my new Madewell blouse...along with these cute booties! And you can find my glitter iPhone case for super cheap here


The boys Easter baskets all ready to go! 

Our weather has been all over the place lately...but this weekend we got some sunshine!


Dying eggs...a messy, but fun endeavor! 


Easter morning was so fun because the boys really didn't expect anything! They lit up like it was Christmas morning, which was really fun to see this year! :) 


Bunny jammies are from Gap...and yes, they're technically girl jammies! Oops!


Made this asparagus and gruyere tart which was really yummy! 


We had brunch at our friend's house where there was LOTS of yummy food! I definitely over-indulged! 








We had such a fun day but we all overdid it and Ethan ended up with a super upset tummy the night of Easter. Poor guy! We're on the BRAT diet today!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
