Happy Thursday! This past week has felt like spring – 78 degrees, trees all in bloom, wildflowers sprouting everywhere – but it is just a glimse of the warm weather to come. I do not know about you but my closet is filled with lot of sweaters, pants, boots, turtlenecks, wool skirts, and jackets. While these winter clothes have served me well over the last few months it is almost time to retire them in favor of spring and summer attire. In the spring and summer I love wearing dresses, sandals, and t-shirts.

This fun dress is my new favorite dress! It is extremely comfortable, has a fun floral print, and is light weight. The most amazing part is that if you are a new mom you could breastfeed in this dress. My friend and I used to talk about how much we missed wearing dresses for the year we breastfed our daughters. Although I am no longer breastfeeding my daughter, this dress would have been great when I was.

This dress is one of the new spring arrivals at My Sisters Closet Boutique. Have you checked out their online store? They have so many fun dresses, shirts, shoes and pretty much everything! I seriously have three things in my cart from their shop right now. No joke. And so we all get to enjoy fun spring clothes – if you enter the code EATPLAYANDGO in your check out you will recieve 10% off your entire order! Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Happy Spring Time!

Have you ever read the book or watched the movie “Confession of a Shopaholic”? It has been years since I have read the book or watched the movie but I do remember that she wrote for a magaize under the name of The Girl in the Green Scarf. Although I do not have much in common with the character of the book “Confession of a Shopaholic” since most of my shopping is done at Target (Yes, it is my favorite store!) and not at Gucci. The one thing I do have is a green scarf that I love. I recently have found a new love for scarfs. As a mom I have realized that most accessories are difficult. Most jewelry cannot handle the pulling and tugging from a toddler. Scarfs however are durable and inexpensive so they have become my go to accessory especially in the weather when that is chilly but a coat is too warm. I am excited to enjoy warm weather and no longer have to worry about wearing a coat pretty soon.

Three other things that I am excited about right now are:

  1. We are loving the movie “Trolls” and often just watch certain parts so we can have family dance parties. The soundtrack is awesome and just makes our little family  dance (Yay for Dance Parties)!
  2. Today, my daughter and I survived Target without a huge tantrum. Normally going to a store conists of a non stop wrestling match and tantrum from my toddler (she hates staying seated in the cart.) So today was a win in my book because I left without having to read the Daniel Tiger book about feeling mad while simultaniously singing songs the entire time (it was a mini mom miracle).
  3. I am working on a post I am super excited about on how I make breakfast easier. Check out the blog later this week for more details on my tricks. It has seriously made my life so much easier and I am sure it will be helpful to you too.

I hope you all have a great day!

The Ultimate Baseball Hat

Confession: I hate washing my hair. It takes forever to wash and even longer to dry (I have A LOT of hair) so I try to only wash my hair once or twice a week. This honestly saves time for more important things like dance parties with my daughter and husband, cooking fun meals, or story time. My  two tricks for not washing my hair everyday is LOTS of dry shampoo and cute hats like this baseball hat. Recently I stumbled across this cute baseball hat from Shuga Clothing  it is only $12 and they have a variety of fun colors. The other great thing about this hat is that it is adjustable so my daughter can even wear it (she has an obsession with hats).

Holiday Date Night

Date nights always make me want to do a little Dance! It is so fun to spend time just the two of us and enjoy a night on the town. Date nights during the holidays are always extra special. We love going to a holiday performance, or driving around trying to find our favorite Christmas lights, or shopping for gifts!   Continue Reading
