ICubs+Garbage[Two of Ev’s favorite things: his cousins + garbage cans]

Anyone else feel like this week lasted forever? The weather here in central Iowa has been all over the board, and I’ve been struggling with what clothes to put on every morning. One thing that I’ve been constantly going back to is my tried and true jean jacket. Check out this amazing coral color version!

There are a ton of Easter egg hunts around town this weekend and next if you are looking for something to do. Here is a great round-up list from the Des Moines Moms Blog.

Have you finished gathering items for your Easter baskets this year? I shared my ideas last week, but here are a few other bloggers (A Little J and K, Hello Baby Brown, Garvin and Co.) that some great ideas for both boys and girls!

Ev+KarlIt has been another week where Friday is here and I’m not exactly sure how it happened. On weeks like this, you can expect to have radio silence from me in this space. I’m just glad that I had a few things that I wanted to make sure you checked out this weekend.

Run and buy this top from Target ASAP! It is perfect for work or play.

I read online this week about the newest collaboration between two unlikely companies: J.Crew and Amazon. The new kids collection, called LOOK by Crewcuts, has me intrigued. I can’t wait to see more.

Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 70s here in central Iowa and it also happens to be the Iowa Cubs Open House. Hoping the boys and I can make it down there for a free dog and a tour of the dugout.

With the temp this past Wednesday hitting 70+ degrees, you best believe I’ve got sandals on the brain. How cute are these orange espadrilles?! [adds to cart]

New collab alert! Drew Barrymore teamed up with Wal-Mart to create Flower Home – a line of boho chic home goods. While not exactly my type, I do really like some of her storage baskets.

I shared my annual round up of Easter basket goodies yesterday, but if you have a little babe and are still looking for a cute filler then you should definitely check out Bannor Toys. Based here in Iowa, this shop is gearing up for their Easter sale that starts on Monday and runs through the 7th.

Life lately: a spring in our steps

It was a long, hard winter people, so excuse me for feeling extra cheery lately with the warmer temps and sunshine peeking through. I’ve been a little quieter on here lately, but we have been here there and everywhere so I thought I’d share a little look into what we’ve been up to.

Big12Tourney2019[not a bad view at last week’s Big 12 Tourney!]

What another wild week! We are looking forward to a weekend of warmer temps and hopefully some rays of sunshine. And what better way to keep the rays out of your peepers than with this awesome pair of sunnies.

My sister was recently rocking this pair of classy sneakers and I have now decided I need to own them too!

On a recent visit to Wal-Mart, my mom noticed they had out a dress that I loved from last year. It is perfect to throw on with a jean jacket and wedges for work, or over a swimsuit at the lake. But act quick, because for under $10, I’m sure these will go fast!
