Easter Sunday and a Link-Up

31 March 2013

We found ourselves at a super early Mass this morning. We decided to take advantage of how early our toddler wakes up to avoid the Easter crowds. It was nice to get a seat at the 7:30 Mass, but I did miss myself some full choir and organ action.

Jacob and I stayed up late last night dying Easter eggs au natural. We cobbled together some dyes from an old beet, some frozen blueberries, and turmeric. Mine are the earthier ones and Jacob's are the flashier ones. I was pretty pleased with our results.


As was the little man.





As fun as the eggs were, the highlight of the day was certainly Jake's "skateboard"


He pretty much wears his dad's helmet and talks about skateboards all day long, so we figured we'd indulge the critter this holiday.

And now to link up with Grace, Kayla, and Erica for some:

Camp Patton

Here's the 'fit.

Outfit details: 
Dress: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: BCBG via Ross
Cardigan: Gap back in the day
Necklace: my grandmother's
Color Palette: embracing the season
Fake smile: Jacob's snarkiness

Now I will say a Happy Easter to you and send you on your way with one final picture that I hope will brighten an already bright day.

Say hello to 11 weeks of baby numero due. 

We're more than stoked.  And even Jake gave the concept of a "baby in mama's tummy" more notice than ever today when he insisted that the baby wear Papa's helmet.

Have a blessed Easter, friends!



    best thing about my Easter. No shame.

    CONGRATS!!!!! YAY!!! Hope you're feeling well. I kind of hope it's another boy because the world can't handle such a pretty girl because Jake is the handsomest baby boy there ever was. You look incredible period but RIDIC for being with child. Love it.

    There's something in the California water ... I wonder who'll be next!!!

  20. Howdy! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!
