Happy Friday, y’all! Looking forward to the weekend over here – even though, admittedly, this week flew by. I’m itching to do some home projects since it’s been a while, so fingers crossed I’ll have the time and motivation to get started over the weekend! I wanted to pop and share a few of my Friday favorites this week.
It’s always felt a bit ironic when I read posts by bloggers and social influencers that say they are taking a much-needed hiatus from sharing on social media. If I’m being honest, I thought that it was kind of petty – like how could social media run your life anyways? As a marketer by trade, social media kind of comes with the territory, but as just one small part of a larger marketing strategy, it never overtook my workdays.
Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays, so it’s even more fun now that I get to make it special for my girls by putting together fun Easter basket ideas. It may be the pretty colors, but for some reason, Easter candy just tastes better than any other candy. I usually don’t like M&Ms, but if you put pastel colored M&Ms in front of me, I’ll eat them. Go figure 🙂
I actually picked up some items for the girls’ Easter baskets already (which you can find here – they’re so cute!) and I have a few more Easter basket ideas up my sleeve, so I wanted to share some ideas that might be helpful if you’re still looking for some fun basket fillers for the little ladies in your life!
I’ve never done a “day in the life” before, but I always love reading other blogger’s day in the life posts! I think it really gives a chance to show a peek into ‘real life’ – and it’s not all glamorous like one might assume based on perfectly curated Instagram posts. 🙂 This day in the life is actually from this past Friday – so without further ado, here we go!

I’ve made it my mission to start waking up before the girls do to have a little quiet time. Some days it doesn’t work out if Blakely wakes up early for some reason, but most of the time, it allows me time to enjoy a cup of coffee, watch the Today Show and mentally prep for the day’s plans. I need this time and it really makes all the difference in getting my day started on the right foot!
Both of the girls wake up like clockwork. Well, Blair was probably already awake, but her OK to Wake! clock goes off at this time every morning. We make a quick trip to the potty and then she demands breakfast (always an applesauce pouch and a yogurt). After I get her breakfast, I get Blakely out of her crib and change her diaper and dress her. Then, I make her a yogurt (using this refillable pouch – love these!). By this time, Blair is done with her breakfast and she starts getting dressed. Her newest thing is picking out her own outfits, but I have to redirect her a few times since she tried to wear a short-sleeve shirt and it’s only 40 degrees outside!
