Happy Friday, friends!
It’s another BIG FUN FRIDAY over here! First up, I’m partnering with Nordstrom and Collective Voice and sharing some super cute new everyday dresses, tops and Easter ideas plus, a few more things from our Dominican Republic vacation, some new Trader Joe’s finds and a little Flashback Friday that still ranks as the most surreal day of my life. It’s all below 🙂 !
Sometimes dressing for SPRING weather can be a bit tricky. It’s sunny out with longer days, buuuut the weather is still a bit chilly too.
Look how cute these two tops are for my sunny spring days…
How adorable is this gauzy button up?! It comes in three different color options (I bought it in blue-ivory). It’s perfect with my MOTHER jeans. Speaking of which…I LOVE this soft split neck top too! It comes in SEVEN different springy patterns. It’s just an easy way to get dressed…comfortable jeans, cute top, sandals and out the door you go!
Speaking of comfy and cute…
Oh my word, how cute are these dresses?! They’re so soft, so comfy and would work so well for running errands, travel, lunch with your girlfriends or dinner on the patio. I bought both the SOLID (also in grey) and the STRIPE (also comes in green) in xs and feel they run TTS. My SANDALS come in eight different colors and are SO COMFORTABLE! I was shocked by how comfy these sandals are!
Plus, you guys…
Yesterday, I shared some pics from our SPRING BREAK VACAY IN THE DR!
We took so many Nordstrom finds on the trip with us including…
Speaking of coverups…
How adorable is this PLEATED ROMPER?! It comes in lavender too!
So cute! I just love these peeps!
I also love my sandals. They’re “jelly” which just makes them perfect for the pool/beach. Kensington and I both wore these in the DR. She loved them too, so I shared 🙂 .
Another Fave this week has been Kensington in her first track meet! I love that my kids just jump into whatever sport is offered. As someone who never played a team sport (as Andrew likes to point out anytime I throw a ball), I just think it’s so cool that my kids take any random opportunity they’re given and try something new. That’s a life skill I wish I would have learned earlier in life. This spring, K joined the track team and has learned how to run hurdles. We had so much fun watching her this week at the meet 🙂 .
‘Tis almost Easter!

Nordstrom is always been my go-to for spring and summer finds! As you know, I always love shopping there because not only do they have everything my family needs from beauty to shoes to home, clothes, bath and more, but they have impeccable service, free shipping, free returns, and curbside pick up (all so handy for the busy lady!). You can catch all of their services (including alterations, gift wrapping, style help and more HERE!).
This week, on my Trader Joe’s run, I found a few things to share…
It’s the simple things in life that really make regular days a bit brighter. I thought these were so pretty, so I added them to a glass and placed them in my office…
They just make me happy when I see them.
Speaking of happy…
…walk don’t run to get the sour cream and onion version of the Corn Puffs!
One of the girls who works with me told me to buy these and put them in the air fryer. I decided to try them for lunch this week. I took two from the package and air fried them for about 10 minutes. HOLY COW THEY WERE DELICIOUS! These are found in the refrigerator section. I’m the queen of saying “everything tastes better in the air fryer”, but I wouldn’t have thought to add these to mine. Great tip! I loved them!
I’m currently hiding these so that my children don’t eat them all in one sitting. Delish!
I’ve shared these before, but I’m going to share them again. Even if your family can consume gluten, buy these! Trust me, they are delicious!!
Add to everything.
Tastes like chocolate covered Hawaii.
We have fired up the grill over here and burgers are starting to be back in our rotation (we don’t often eat them during the fall and winter months). These are the perfect pickles for sandwiches and burgers because they lay flat.
I will be sprinkling this on everything…how divine would it taste on a deviled egg?
Speaking of burgers, add this to yours! Ashby puts Dijon mustard on everything (even tacos!). This is such a great quality of Dijon but at an amazing price.
If you’ve tried anything new recently from Trader Joe’s, comment and let me know!
Wrap up your week and kick off your weekend with my easy BLUEBERRY BANANA WAFFLES!
You’ll love how simple they are and your family will love how they’re so delicious!
Finally, it’s time for…
…in honor of the Spring Break posts this week, I thought we should flashback to the MOST SURREAL DAY OF MY LIFE.
Honest to goodness, I still have a hard time wrapping my brain around our trip to Washington DC and the night we accidentally…
…got a private tour in the White House including my kids all sitting at the Vice President’s desk (um, hello?!) annnnnd…we were allowed to stand inside the doorway of the Oval Office for about 20 minutes and just look at it. Just us. Our little family. Standing in the doorway looking into a room that has been the office to the most powerful/influential/infamous/brilliant men in US history. It was all quite the unexpected happy accident that you can read about HERE.
That wraps up this week over here in blog world. Sending you much love, many blessings and so much happiness this weekend. I’ll see you Monday! xx
