Hope you all had a fabulous Easter Sunday!! We spent our day with my dad’s side of the family! Miss Libbey really got in to the egg hunt this year! The weather stayed nice just long enough to hunt eggs and then it rained. Libbey is still talking about the Easter Bunny three days later and still carrying around her Easter Basket! JD had to work the night before, but he was able to join us later in the afternoon! Libbey was a fan of her dress! She refused to take it off at bedtime… I was dying over Bennett’s little hat!! Cutest thing ever!!!

 Hellooooo Spring!! My little family and I have spent the last ten days in Austin, Texas! I have family there, so we love to visit as much as we can! The weather was amazing there, so now I’m over the cold and ready for warm weather!! It isn’t quite warm enough here for spring clothes, but I’m definitely working spring colors into my wardrobe! Love my vest from Mindy Mae’s Market! Perfection transition color! Can we talk about my necklace!! OBsessed!! Check out the super cute site!!

Dress: Altar’D State, similar! (This is for sure one of my new favorite stores!!)
Lace Extender: similar here
Sandals: Go Jane(old), like these and want these!
Necklace: Sam Moon(old), similar!
(Sorry for the blurry iPhone pics! We were in a hurry!)

I am obsessed with Alter’D State!! If you have never been you need to find one ASAP!! My closest one is an hour and a half away and it is so worth the drive! I first saw the store like a year and a half ago while visiting family in Austin! It was love at first site! They have an awesome sale room too! While we were in Austin this past March, I picked up a few dresses that would be bump friendly! I have been wearing a lace extender under a lot of my dress because the bump tends to make them a bit shorter. The extenders aren’t made out of a heavy material, so they are a cool and easy layer to add to an outfit to make it longer or to change it up a bit!

Derby Party

Happy Tuesday!! Hope everyone’s week is going well! It is only Tuesday and I’m already exhausted! I think I’m still trying to catch up from the weekend! On Saturday evening my friend Kristen hosted a fabulous Derby Party for a few close friends! It was soooo much fun!! Did we actually watch the race?! Nooooo! We chatted, snacked, and drank instead! I was told the mint juleps were delicious… I had to stick with pink lemonade.. The food was aaaamazing!!!! Kristen even made each of us a “hat,” which were actually super fun headbands!! She even made Miss Libbey one! Libbey thought she was big stuff hanging with the girls! She was our entertainment for the night! She is quite the show off! I’m thinking we need to make derby parties a yearly tradition! I’ll take any excuse to dress up:)
