Friday Favorites

Friday, April 3, 2015

Happy weekend! I can't remember a time when I was more excited for the weekend. We officially survived my first week back to work with only one minor mom-guilt breakdown from me. Now we're prepping for Rowan's first Easter and hosting dinner!

I'm linking up with Christina and crew for a quick edition of Five Four on Friday!

ONE. Desserts. 


Of course dessert is my main concern for Easter dinner, since I know my Mom has the rest covered (great host, right?). I haven't had much time to bake lately but I'm looking forward to making these gorgeous rose cupcakes again! They are really easy, see the tutorial here, and can be made with store bought cupcake mix and frosting if you're pressed for time.

TWO. Rowan's First Easter Basket

Bucket Hat (Janie & Jack Outlet). Swim Diaper (Similar). Llama Llama book. Sandals.
Smocked Bubble. Basket (Michael's, with DIY liner).

I know he won't know what the heck is going on, but I had such a good time putting together Rowan's first Easter basket! We're all set for summer with his first smocked bubble, a reversible bucket hat, swim diaper, and adorable sandals. I just couldn't pass them up! What do you have in your mini's basket?

THREE. Target.


Not Easter related, but I'm trying to figure out where I can put these gorgeous stools. Also, I'll take one of everything in this picture.

FOUR. This smile.
Bouncer. Stay & Co. Hat (love their fabrics, so soft!).
I don't think its possible to kiss these cheeks any more than I already do! This smile just makes my day!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Those cupcakes look fabulous!! Dessert is my job too! I might be hosting but mama is doing all of the real cooking! His Easter basket is adorable, you’ve got to make one even though he doesn’t know what’s going on, you do and the first Easter is a special one! I’ve been loving all those same pieces at Target recently and so want one of those stools – I just don’t know where! What a doll your sweet boy is!
