Happy {Good} Friday, friends! I can't let today pass without being reminded of why this is such a good Friday; but we don't just celebrate the crucifixion of Jesus, we celebrate the fact that He rose again on Sunday! It's Friday, but Sunday's coming! 

I'm excited for all of our Easter happenings this weekend! Brandon has a half day today for Good Friday (and I have a doctor's appointment to check in on baby boy #2); Walker has his Easter egg hunt at church tomorrow morning; and then we have church on Sunday morning, followed by lunch at my in-law's. Here was Walker last Easter; I can't even believe how much he's grown! 

A good ol' standby meal for us on #TacoTuesday are Mix and Match Mama's Baked Queso Tacos. It's one of those meals that looks pretty icky, but tastes delicious! She calls for 1 1/2 TBPS. of chili powder, but I take that down to a sprinkle so Walker can enjoy these, too. (He eats them deconstructed: I put the meat on his plate and sprinkle with some grated cheddar cheese and serve with refried black beans, rice and a side of a sliced fruit.) 

We top ours with chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, grated cheddar cheese, sour cream and a little bit of salsa. Yum! 

My birthday is in two weeks, but we're celebrating next weekend since my brother-in-law is getting married on my birthday weekend. ;) What's on my wish list? These. Dying for these

Pinterest is killing me with all the precious spring clothes! I'm especially really loving scallops lately, and I can't wait to get my hands on a few pairs of scalloped shorts to wear this summer after baby boy #2 arrives in mid- to late May! 

And because he's so dang adorable, I couldn't resist snapping this picture of Walker heading into Mother's Day Out on Wednesday. I mean, why does he look 12?! I can't even with this whole "growing up" business!
