| he’s been on a major black bean kick |

| his first real Easter basket from us (big thanks to Aunt Alyson for getting him this basket last year | 

| Winter Park egg hunt with the Easter bunny – he loveeed the characters. | 

| best part about Easter (besides candy) F A M I L Y

| he’s been saying “dad-deeee” lately and it’s the cutest thing |

| smells like Spring around here with an annoying amount of pollen (blah) |

| major mama time this week since our nanny is sick. we even got to go to story time at the library together – isn’t he the cutest? The hat lasted for about an hour 😉 | 

| park days with my sidekick |

| some gma love |


I’ve always had a minor crush on anything mid-west.
From my favorite Minnetonka moccasins, small collection of sterling silver and my fringe bag… I can’t help it.

I’ve noticed the older I get the more I love it. Maybe my roots? From fashion to now interior decor, I want more of it.
And it’s probably telling that I’ve had this sweater forevverrrr and I still love it.

Plus a pair of high waist skinny jeans will always be a closet staple.

Baxter of California

Two of my favorite things combined…

Raise your hand if you have a million and one lip balms?

Raise your hand if you, on occasion, steal your man’s lip balm?

This stuff from Baxter of California you BOTH will love.
Cool packaging, mojito-flavored (yummmm!), paraben-free with coconut and jojoba oils. I mean… I’ll take 5, please.

From their BEST SELLERS, AWARD WINNERS, HAIR CARE, SHAVE CARE, SKIN CARE, to yes, CANDLES! It’s a total one stop shop that leaves all the other guy product lines in the d u s t.

Plus, it’s a brand that’s been around forever. Okay, since 1965 but they have an old school mentality with present day practices. Read more about them here.

But here’s why I love them and you will, too:

An auto-replenishment service?! Guys, seriously? 
They are giving away a years supply. You read that right. Check #baxteronhand
They have an old school barber shop in West Hollywood. 

So when you go to buy birthday gifts, host gifts, or even Father’s day gifts – keep Baxter of California in mind.

Now, I’m going to stock up on some things myself.

Dancing Pineapples

I got a couple different drawstring pants during my pregnancy, for this reason…
Over a year later and still wearing them 🙂

The print is fun, the fit is tailored just enough and they do put some pep in my step.

Let’s do this, Monday.

P.s. LAST chance to enter my giveaway with Montblanc!!
Picking a winner tonight.
good luck!

Monkey See

Monkey do.
I saw Lauren Conrad’s latest fashion trend post – jeans and lace.
Well instead of the fitted flare she wore, I went ahead and grabbed my most destroyed pair.
Something refreshing pairing a boyfriend style jean with a feminine top.

Hope everyone has a beautiful Easter weekend. I’m optimistic Hudson will figure out the egg hunt thing 🙂
