I don’t know about you, but this time of year, my mailbox is overflowing with adorable announcements from friends whose kiddos are heading out of high school. The fact that…
…this girl heads to high school in August makes me want to sit here and sob. You guys, it’s just going by too quickly!!!
Whew. Okay. #allthemomfeels
Next up, this year, we did something totally different and the day before Easter, we hosted an Easter BBQ instead of our traditional “country club Sunday after Easter services lunch”. You guys IT WAS SO MUCH FUN! The weather was gorgeous, the food was delish (if I do say so myself!), and since it was a “BBQ”, it felt super relaxed and chill.
It is a long-standing family tradition that the grandparents provide the Easter baskets for the grandkids. Why? I have no idea, but I’ve yet to ever make one for my kids which is awesome because MY MOM’S ARE AMAZING! I tell her every year that she should truly go into the Easter basket making business.
After everyone opened their baskets…
…there was lots of fun outside time. How sweet are Kensington and Mia blowing and chasing bubbles?!
I just love this guy! He is my forever favorite party co-host.
What a difference a year makes! My grandmother is doing AMAZING! This woman has been kicking cancer since she was MY AGE.
Read that again.
She has battled cancer now multiple times (all unrelated), lost her husband to cancer when he was only 65 and yet, here she is. Gorgeous, smiling and radiating JOY. Geez, I love her.
I mean, this one needs to go in a frame. 🙂
The gang was (almost!) all here. We were missing three of our favorite girlies (volleyball tournament!), but we had most of the bunch. I think Samuel’s face sums up the mood perfectly.
Of course, we had an egg hunt too. Want to know what we had for dinner? I have the full menu at the bottom of today’s post 🙂 .
One more of this sweet lady. She’s held my hand now twice over the last 16 months as I’ve buried two of my other grandparents (both dear friends of hers). She’s my rock. She’s my hero in life.
And because it’s so cute that you might just need it too…
It is sheer, so you will need to wear either a tank, a cami or ONE OF THESE under it. Bonus, you know how much I love my SANDALS too. They are super, super comfy and also come in several other colors.
On Easter morning…
…the six Shulls all headed to church before making our way to a delicious Easter lunch in Frisco. It was such a nice (and relaxing!) way to spend Easter Sunday.
I just love my peeps so much!
If you’re looking for a few other cute finds right now, here you go…
If you’re looking for something to wear at night…
…MY TOP and MY JEANS are both great picks! I bought my top in black, but it comes in prints and other fun solids (like bright yellow and pink!) too. If you ever buy Wit & Wisdom jeans, make sure you size down one size.
Every time I wear…
…THIS TOP, I get compliments!
How adorable is this gauzy button up, right?! 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. Again, my SANDALS come in eight different colors and are SO COMFORTABLE! I was shocked by how comfy these sandals are!

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!).
So, what did I serve on at our Easter backyard BBQ???
You can see the full menu and all the deets HERE today too!
That wraps up my Thursday, friends! I hope you all have a wonderful day! I’ll see you tomorrow. xx
