Spring baking

One of my favorite things about a change in the season is new recipes and baking ideas. I love to incorporate whatever season it is into what I'm cooking. Now that I'm a mom, I especially love "creating" food that not only tastes like the season but also looks like it as well. Harrison can't appreciate bunny pancakes just yet but next year I think he will LOVE it.

As often as I make pancakes, I like to keep my baking mix where I can easily scoop it out. 

I'm also dying to try these lemon rolls! The lemon version of a cinnamon roll, YES please! I also love the look of these mini pancake stacks. What are your favorite spring snacks?

Egg Hunting and Easter

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. We had a great weekend except for the rainy, cold weather all day Easter Sunday. Saturday was beautiful and we enjoyed an egg hunt put on by our church. Harrison had more fun that I thought he would. I figured he would be too young but he loved picking up the eggs. It was so much fun to play the Easter Bunny and get our little guy all dressed up in his Sunday best.

He is the happiest little guy! I could seriously EAT.HIM.UP.

 I was so bummed that we didn't get to take any pictures outside on Easter, indoor photos always have the darkest lighting no matter where stand.

Our Renovation Progress

We decided to add on a master bathroom and closet to one of our guest rooms early last year. After several months of waiting our contractor was finally ready to start. Fast forward 5 months and we are STILL. NOT. DONE. I am SO ready to wrap this project up. Living in a renovation for 5 months has been torture. Sheetrock dust is a real B to clean up, especially for 6 weeks. Anyway we have made major progress and we will hopefully be done in the next month or so. Here's a peak of some of the products we used and a look at whats been done.

I'll do a full product review once I have actually put everything to good use. I have been SO pleased with the look of everything so far. The tub and vanity exceeded my expectations.

Here is the progress we have made...

Shower shelves

We are waiting for the doors to be hung so the tile guy can come finish the tile and grout everything. After that we will have the closet shelving done and hopefully pass our final inspection. THEN I will will have some major work to do sorting and getting rid of clothes and shoes that I haven't worn in over a year. This whole process has been a major pain but I'm certain it will all be worth it in the end (or at least it better be). Have a WONDERFUL Easter weekend.

Easter Basket Fun

Happy hump day and Easter week to you all. I am so excited to play Easter Bunny this year to my sweet Harrison. Not that he has a clue what Easter is but he will surely be excited to play with all of the goodies I have put in his basket. Don't get me wrong, it has been fun playing Bunny to my husband and dog but I have officially stepped up my game. Here is a little sneak peak into my sweet baby's Easter basket this year.

Obviously, the swing will not be in the Easter basket but beside it. He loves to swing so much so I thought Easter would be the perfect spring holiday to give this to him. I can't wait to make more memories with our next "first" holiday.
