Happy Friday and Happy April 1st! I love this month and love the fresh start a new month brings. So let's get to it, shall we? 

Like I mentioned Wednesday, Brandon and I are having a date night tonight to celebrate my birthday (a weekend early). His parents are keeping Walker overnight for us, and I'm thrilled about getting to sleep in past 7 a.m. tomorrow! My request for our little overnight date was Mexican food, sleeping in my own bed and brunch on Saturday morning before picking up the little man. I can't wait! 

I have been in such a spring cleaning/nesting mode lately! I've been trying so hard to deep clean things in the house while I still can, and that has even resonated over to social media. The other night, I sat for about an hour and cleaned up my Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Bloglovin' roll, as well as did an updated, and seriously, it felt SO GOOD. I love a good spring cleaning! 

(And if y'all haven't done, do it! It's seriously one of my favorite things to do to clean out my inboxes and all of those email lists I get subscribed to!) 

I seriously love everything by the brand Lush and would scoop up every bit of it off Nordstrom's website if I could. (Totally not a sponsored post or affiliate linked, I just seriously love them.) Anyway, I'm majorly wanting these two things right now; does anybody have them and if so, what are your opinions?! 

I have a ton of Old Navy Super Cash burning a hole in my pocket, though, (that conveniently begins use on my birthday!) and am pretty sure I'll be making a detour to that little store on my birthday to pick up some stuff. 

"The Real Housewives of Dallas" premiers April 11, and y'all, I'm terrified about how us Dallasites are going to be portrayed! (Not that I'm loaded and live in Highland Park and all, but it scares me how they're going to portray Dallas women.) Yes, a lot of us do have big hair, big personalities and a Texas accent, but eeeeekkksss, I hope they are classy. And yes, you can bet I'll be parked in front of the TV watching next Monday! 

I stumbled upon this sweet picture when I was pulling pictures for a project Walker's doing at Mother's Day Out and I just can't even with that precious little yawn. He was about six months old here and so darn cute and I can't handle it! Seriously time, please slow down! 

I hope y'all have fabulous weekends! 

Linking up with: 

April + the Five on Friday girls 

Amy + Karli 

Andrea + the Friday Favorites girls 

Katie + the High Five for Friday girls 



  1. That picture is ADORABLE!!!! Don't worry about one thinks that everyone in the area that RH is filmed is like that. If that was the case, how would you feel about me, growing up right outside of Potomac?
    I LOVE! I used it last year when I was getting inundated with junk emails and it totally helped!
    Hope you have a great date night/birthday dinner with your love!! Send me some snaps :)

  2. I definitely need to do a social media clean up, too! A great thing to add to my spring cleaning list! I am so excited for Real Housewives of Dallas - can't wait to see that! Have a great weekend - happy early birthday celebration.

  3. Baby yawns are the BEST! And I agree with you on the date night thing. My favorite is when we do what you're doing- go out, sleep at home, and pick up kids from grandmas after breakfast the next morning. The last time we did that was to go Christmas shopping and to dinner without them. Have fun!

  4. Have the best time celebrating your birthday this weekend, girl! You deserve it!! I actually own zero Lush pieces (zero clue why - everyone raves about them) but I don't see how you could go wrong with those pieces! They are adorable! I'm fighting the urge to start watching RHOD because I'm sooo over the other Housewives shows but I just. can't. stop. watching them!! Thanks for reminding me about! I've been slowly working my way through my emails trying to unsubscribe to things but that will be so much easier!!

  5. I am so excited for the RHO Dallas! I think it will be great!

  6. Fun post! The blue dress is adorable, would be great for the summer! The picture of your two boys is too cute :) I just started my Spring cleaning and its for sure addicting! Once I start, I keep finding more to clean/throw out!!
    Have a great date night!

  7. Glad you all get a date night! That will be so much fun. :) Also, that last picture is so precious!

  8. Oh my gosh! Look at the wittle bitty Walker baby! So cute. Hooray for a date night and sleeping in!!! That sounds like heaven. Love that Lush dress! And thanks for the super cash reminder! Looks like I'll be doing some more damage at Old Navy again soon. :) Have a great weekend celebrating your birthday!

  9. Stopping by from 5 on Friday! :)

    Happy birthday and enjoy that date night! I really need to give a try. My inboxes are out of control. Love that dress!

  10. Yay for date night!! Hope you have the best time :) Can't wait for RHOD!!

  11. Enjoy your date night girl!! Unroll me is seriously the best thing ever for you inbox and that picture is the cutest!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  12. Have such an amazing time celebrating this weekend! Definitely need to check out that!

  13. hope y'all have an amazing date night and get a FULL night's sleep! ahhh sounds incredible! happy weekend friend!

  14. Happy Early Birthday! Enjoy every second tonight! I'm eagerly awaiting the new Housewives, too. I have to say that I think we all know the "ladies" are not indicative of all ladies in their respective areas, but I'd feel the same way if it were my hometown. Happy Friday! Have a wonderful weekend!

  15. That picture of Walker is so cute!!! Crazy how fast they grow! Have so much fun this weekend with your birthday celebrations!!!
