Some Chambray and Some Dots

I really need to dispense with blog titles, I totally stink at them.  We really did have a great weekend. Instead of our normal church meetings, we stayed home and watched General Conference in our pajamas eating homemade cinnamon rolls and doing puzzles.  It was so fun, I really love just hanging out with my husband and boys.

 Yet another awesome thing, that happened over the weekend is that I found out Josh and I are going to the Dominican Republic in a month!  I am so excited!!!  Josh and I love to travel and thanks to Josh's frequent flyer miles from work we get to quite often, but we rarely get to go out of the country.  I am THRILLED!  My passport is all ready and waiting.  Has anyone ever been there?  I'd love to hear about it!!

 Alas, my body isn't...I am not really thrilled about being in a swimming suit so early, I thought I had a couple more months!!  I guess I will get my booty in gear, literally!  I hope that you all had a lovely weekend!

Happy April Fools Day

I know this isn't a style post, but with today being the first day of Spring Break and also completely rainy, it just didn't happen.  Instead I thought I'd post this instagram pic (sorry for my instagram followers who have already seen it).

I am a holiday lover, not just the big one either.  I love April Fools Day!  I always do something for my boys (except last year...whoops!)  This year I saw this idea here, and thought it would be great.  I don't like mean jokes and my boys are a bit sensitive so I wanted to find something they would think was funny.  They were a bit startled to go to the fridge this morning and see the food looking out at them! I had to laugh every time I got into the fridge for soemthing.  To see some of the past jokes I've played on my boys look here, here and here.

Easter Sunday

 I am a huge fan of Easter Sunday.  Easter weekend for that matter.  Spending a whole weekend with my family and focusing on the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Sounds lovely to me!

 It was lovely for that matter.  We had Easter egg hunts, kite flying, Easter baskets (I finally got a new old one died.  The Easter bunny was good to me :)  yummy dinners and lots of good conversation.

I love getting my boys new Easter clothes.  I think it is such a fun tradition and I loved seeing them all dressed so cute.

Josh and I also got a few new things (Josh was super cute and took me shopping for a new "Easter dress").

I thought I'd just post a few instagrams of our Easter dinner.  We had my cute parents and youngest brothers over for dinner.  My parents are leaving for a mission to Zimbabwe and my youngest brother is going on his mission to France, so next year will be so lonely without them!  We were glad to be able to have them at our house for Easter.  I found this cute idea for a  menu here.  I loved the carnation bunny tail!
It was so fun to have these wonderful people over.  I seriously lucked out in the family department.  We had such a fun night with them!

Navy and Peach

This is two post in a row where I wore polka dot pants (I bought them at the same time too, so I know I have a problem :)

I really wish my blog was they type that was planned out, but really it is more of a "what I wore yesterday" sort of blog so when I wear two pair of similar pants in two days...that's what ya get ;)

...and can I tell you that these are the most ballet-y ballet flats I have ever owned.  I swear when I wear them I want to jete and pirouette my little heart out.  I am now looking for excuses to wear them, who doesn't want to feel like dancing all day?

A Couple of Dots

Friends, I have officially gone overboard on polka dot jeans...I am a sucker for a polka dot and add that to a pair of jeans and I am hooked.

This picture doesn't show it very well, but this top is made out of a swiss dot fabric.  My sweet little 3 year old calls it my "snowball" shirt.  Apparently white dots on a white blouse looks like a snowball fight!
