Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! We have a lot of favorites to share this week. I'm linking up with Andrea, Narci, and Erika to share our favorite.
one. this weather.
 We spent all of Monday evening outside playing with the boys.
Peyton discovered the gas pump and won't stop playing with it.

It's in his blood, I tell ya!

This view is my favorite and I can't wait to add grass to it!
two. angel food cake.
Tuesday, I tried out a new recipe for angel food cake. It was so good! It had a roasted strawberry sauce on top. On of my favorite dessert recipes I've tried!

three. snuggles.
Between teething, getting sick, and scooter crashes, I'm getting a lot of snuggles this week, which will always be a favorite. Peyton isn't one to snuggle so I'm loving them.

Mom snuggles can cure any scooter crash!

four. quiet time.
Spending my mornings with Jesus is my favorite way to start the day! My bible study is wrapping up our study and it's been so good!

five. easter eggs.
Colson and I tried a new technique to color Easter eggs this week. It was a fun activity and I'm going to share what we did next week!
Also, it was VERY messy!

six. afternoon coffee.
I've been drinking blonde roast coffee with some half & half. I make it at home and it's yummy! I just buy the Starbucks blonde roast at the grocery store so I don't have to wait for it to brew.

seven. spring decorations.
I've mentioned before that I love having spring decorations up in the house! I'm just finally getting around to sharing a few pictures.

This bunny is one of my favorites! I found him at TJ Maxx a few years ago and love him so much!

Look how sweet this picture is! Coloring Easter eggs THREE years ago!

The kitchen is very simple!
I had some helpers with my chalkboard. I need to fix it but I love encouraging Colson to use his imagination! Allowing him to help me with the chalkboard, keeps him from coloring on other walls!

And, the sweet little egg hunter that he made for me!

eight. cake pops.
At Starbucks the other day, I found a parrot cake pop and surprised this boy when he got home from preschool! This boy loves cake pops!!!

nine. Colson's art.
This is my very favorite from the week. Colson drew this picture for his Dad. How sweet!?

Happy Friday! I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned. We will be staying home and trying to get over the sickness that hit our house!

Easter Outfits

Today I'm sharing my favorite Easter outfit finds for the family. Coordinating outfits is so hard for me. Every time we take family pictures, I cringe thinking about putting together outfits.
Since Easter is only a couple weeks away, I don't see us wearing shorts but with Idaho weather, you never know! I love the simple and classic look of navy and white. Other than the shorts I have picked out for Peyton, these are all pieces that we could easily wear again and again.
When I saw the bunny shorts for Peyton, I knew they were perfect! Since they are on sale {!!!} and he outgrows clothes so quickly anyways, I think they are perfect for Easter and he can wear them into spring. The navy, light blue, and white help to tie everyone's outfits together.
I like the idea of pairing it with a basic white top.
Both of my boys have worn these sandals in the past and they are great. Peyton can get great wear out of them all summer long. Bonus, they are only $10!
I love this dress. I think it is perfect for church. I could wear it with a cardigan and some nude heals. I think this would be a dress I could easily wear again but it's very classic. It comes in some other colors also. I love the emerald green!
Colson's top has the navy, light blue, and white also. Paired with the navy shorts, it looks really sharp! I must say that when looking for outfits for Colson, it was sad shopping in the boy's section.
I love this look paired with boat shoes!
A simple shirt for Travis that ties into the light blue and navy. He would pair it with jeans and be set.
These would also be great for some spring family pictures! We took family pictures in the spring and fall last year. I love them both, but we are holding out for fall pictures. I love having them done just in time to send out our Christmas cards!
