Friday Favorites from Winter Break

How is it that break weeks always go the fastest? I have no idea how it's already Friday, but I'm okay with it because that means we're headed to the country house to see my parents! I've heard there is lots of snow & they have a great sledding hill, so I'm sure there will be tons of fun had by all. 

Even though it doesn't feel like spring at all, I was able to get some spring shopping done for myself & the girls while we were off. I was surprised that Gap Kids already had a ton of their early spring line on sale, plus 30% off, so I snagged a few things for dirt cheap. My favorite was this top that Ella picked out for herself! She jumped out of the stroller & said, "what do you think mama?" And since she loved it so much, she wore it the next day to The Strong with her favorite pink Doc Martens & boyfriend jeans. 

Side note - She is now wearing a 5T! I cannot believe she's gotten so big on me! 

In other shopping news, Eric's mom won a $50 gift card to a local kids consignment shop & gave ti to me to do some shopping with while I was in town on Monday. I was able to find some really cute stuff - all of it either Gymboree, Gap Kids, or Janie & Jack. I didn't even know this place existed until she told me about it, but I will definitely be checking it out again. It isn't very often that I can get 15 quality items for under $40! 

These purple jeans that Livy is wearing were only$2.99 & they're Gap! 

St. Patrick's Day is a HUGE deal in Eric's hometown & it's also Eric's mom's birthday weekend, so we always go home for the festivities. I wanted to make sure I had our outfits squared away early this year so I wasn't scrambling the weekend before like I did last year, so I made it my mission to get it taken care of this week! I found this top for Ella, this onesie to go with the St. Patrick's Day tutu Ella wore when she was a baby, and this awesome shirt from Taylor's line for myself! I just love supporting small businesses & thought this shirt was perfect for St. Patty's in Hornell! 

I've been loving having both girls in the double stroller without the carseat attachment this week! Livy thinks she is hot stuff & Ella just loves to look over at her & make her laugh! 

I was worried that Livy wouldn't nap all that well in it, but nope, she slept in the middle of The Strong yesterday, so I think she likes it. 

And speaking of The Strong, we brought our favorite cheerleader to the museum with us yesterday to help out! Eric was supposed to go with us, but is in the middle of a huge project at work & couldn't get off, so we recruited Emma instead! She was so helpful & is going to be watching the girls a bit this summer too, so expect to see lots more of her around here!
