[hope you all have a very happy Easter!]
Raise of hands…if you live in the Midwest, how ready are you for sandal weather?! I can’t wait to bust out my new sandals from Target to wear at the lake this year.
I saw Apple’s new HomePod commercial the other day, but what I didn’t know was how fascinating shooting it was.
Maybe you are in the market for a last minute adult Easter gift from the bunny, how about a pastel mint insulated tumbler? #treatyoself

After a fun-filled day at Disneyland, we woke up the following morning and packed up our rental cars to head south to where we would be staying for the rest of our vacay – La Jolla.
We arrived at our VRBO house and checked the place out. Once we had talked about possible room arrangements, we loaded the kiddos back up and went in search of lunch.
We settled on Sammy’s Pizza on Pearl Street. The kids scarfed down pizza and ice cream while the adults sipped rosé and settled in to the laid back Cali culture.
We headed back to the house to get settled in and wait for the second crew to get there. They had spent the day at Universal Studios and were coming later that evening.
This was the scene most evenings while on vacation. Cousins winding down after long days at the beach/pool/playing.
In the next post, I’ll share photos and stories from our different excursions during the day. Sharing my favorite shops, beach time, the zoo and more!

I totally missed the announcement that one of my fave bloggers, Love Taza, was going to be collaborating with Target on a travel collection. I think I need to own this backpack/tote combo!
Is the Easter bunny (YOU) still looking for ideas on what to stuff in the baskets this year? Then check out this adorable bunny vs. egg tic-tac-toe game from This & That Etc.
As a fan of custom fonts and binging television shows, I found this article quite interesting.
While in Cali over spring break I was totally sucked into the surfing culture and decided to channel my inner Blue Crush dreams onto Everett by purchasing him this O’Neill surfer boy trucker hat.
Easter has definitely snuck up on me so now I’m in a full on panic to figure out what the boys will be wearing this year. I’m thinking gingham and pastels.
If you are in the same boat as me, I’ve got you covered with this round-up of cute kiddo looks for all your Easter activities!

Fresh off of our trip to California, I thought I’d share a few highlights (and a ton of photos!) with you as I adjust back to the faster pace and time difference. Up first: Disneyland!
We arrived at the Disneyland park a little after 8 a.m. and hit the ground running. Literally. After hauling the goods (kids, strollers, snacks galore) all the way to the trams that take you into the park, I realized that I had forgotten our tickets and had to run back to the car to retrieve them. Nothing like getting the heart rate up early in the morning!
As we entered the gates (download the app – it’s a must!), we ran right into a ton of the characters and made a beeline to Mickey.
Walking through Main Street U.S.A. was quite a treat and Ev asked to pose for a few photos near his favorite things: including a doctor’s office and a fire hydrant with the number 4 on it. You know, because he’s four.
We stopped in front of the castle to snag a family photo and look who decided to join us! Don’t mind Fitzie’s mean mug face.
Once inside, we hit the ground running and since Everett was big enough, he got to ride most of the rides!
Marcus wasn’t sure he’d like Disneyland, but this picture below is when he realized how much fun he was having!
Then Princess Brooklyn graced us with her presence after visiting the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
After a long day of Disney, the kids all cashed out and so did the adults!
