I’m starting to think I love Easter more than most holidays. I’m not sure what it is, but I’ve been giddy to make the kids Easter baskets all week! We have an Easter egg hunt this weekend at church and one Sunday morning in our backyard. Evie grabbed these glitter eggs at Target a few weeks ago. I have a feeling they will be making an appearance for some BONUS eggs out back! 😉
I hope you all will be able to spend time with your families this weekend, and you’re able to remember the reason we celebrate Easter. As Finn told me after school Wednesday, “the soldiers hung Jesus on the cross, but He LIVED!”
I hope your Easter is filled with all the sweetness you are hoping. Dive into the holiday weekend with my most fantastic online finds. Click the blue “Fantastic” link to go directly to the source page.
Fantastic Cute: There are so many reasons to love little girl clothes. The colors, the sweetness, they way they look so dang adorable! Evie received this peach for Easter and I’m dying to get it on her! Decaf Plush has sweetness down to a ‘T’ with little kids clothes. The prints and patterns are simply amazing. These items look like nothing you’ll find in a retail megahouse which I adore.
Their spring and summer look book has some styles that make my heart go beep-beep! That dress on the right? I die! I heart Decaf Plush!
Fantastic Read: The mere thought of child labor makes me sad. Add to it the thought that something – ever so small – that we might be doing could be pushing it forward makes me furious. Think again this weekend about any Easter treats you might see. Sometimes how those sweet little treats were made is unethical, at best. Take 10 minutes to read this article. I believe your thoughts about chocolate consumption will drastically change.
Fantastic Activity: How I wish I’d had something like this when Finn was little! He and Evie both love the smaller version at the library. What a great way to occupy a child’s mind and hands while you clear dishes from breakfast!
Fantastic Calm: I’ve always loved white trim in a house. So many colors look crisp and clean when lined in white. Thankfully our new house was redone with white. This will be the color of the bathroom on our main level within the month!
Fantastic Yum: This mixes nearly all of my favorite foods into one salad! Bacon? Yum! Avocado? Yum! Tomato? Yum! Must there be more?
Fantastic Cure: One of the questions I often hear about essential oils or natural home remedies is, “what can I do about my child’s eczema?” From my experience, eczema always tends to be an inside-out issue. Something internally is going on to create an outside reaction. I struggled with eczema-like symptoms a lot in my 20s until my diet changed. I can’t tell you how many steroid creams I was prescribed. The first suggestion I always make is to address the food issue, usually dairy, gluten or refined sugar. But there are other triggers, too. Heal the gut, heal the body!
Fantastic Hair Crush: Four inches off my hair and I’m ready for more. Of course when I see adorable styles like this I want to re-grow, re-grow, re-grow…
Fantastic Images: Who doesn’t love a little National Geographic? Their images are always so insanely breath-taking!
Fantastic Treat: We are making these mouth-watering donuts this weekend and then promptly devouring them. I will probably make a few swaps, but holy moly… I could eat the screen!
Fantastic Truth: This is Evie to a T. Fierce and mighty and strong and brave. My kind of girl!
Fantastic Pharrell: I fell in love the first collaboration Pharrell did with Brit-Brit long ago (BOYS!!). Ever since, I’ve been a huge fan. How amazing to see people across the world dance and find joy to your song. His genuine emotion when Oprah shared clips of people dancing worldwide is so sweet.
What’s on tap for your holiday weekend? Traveling? Staying home? Easter egg hunts? Spill the beans!
