5 on {Good} Friday

Happy Friday everyone!

Today's 5 on Friday features some Spring and Easter fun! As always, thank you to AprilDarciChristina, and Natasha for hosting! Won't you join us?


I happened to come across this GORGEOUS diaper bag from Coach after Justin asked me the other day if I had found one yet. I honestly hadn't really looked, but figured it was probably about time to start shopping, considering little man will be here very soon, and the one I used with T is pink. This could be totally gender neutral, right? I love the gingham print and color. Maybe the Easter Bunny will bring me one, hint hint! ;o)

I couldn't help but sing these words when I came across them! Takes me back to elementary school and music class...

Anyway, I'm so excited for Easter weekend; dyeing eggs, hiding them in the backyard for Tinley to find, going to see the Easter Bunny, spending time with family, and lot's of yummy food and treats! I love Easter and all that it brings, including the warm weather! Hopefully Mother Nature got the memo that it's the end of April!

  How adorable are these bunny pancakes?! I'm thinking these will totally be a part of Easter weekend's breakfast! Of course, I will be more excited than Tinley will be... she could've cared less when I made her Mickey-shaped pancakes before we went to Mickey's Music Festival a few weekends ago... it's the thought that counts, right?!


I came across these super cute FREE printables on Etsy and had every intention of making treats for T's pals, but time got away from me and I'm super bummed. I guess I'll just have to eat all the candy I bought for them, and bookmark them for next year!

 It's finally looking like spring at the Slater home! I'm in love with our new spring door piece. Now if only the grass would turn green and the last of the snow would melt, we would be in good shape!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Easter Basket Blog Hops

I am so excited for today! I'm linking up with Darci over at The Good Life Blog and Sarah from Our Journey for Easter Basket Blog Hops! These are two of my favorite blogs, so make sure you go check them out!

 I really enjoyed doing this last year and seeing what great ideas all you other mommies came up with for your kiddos for Easter, so I decided to join in on the fun again!

Her basket and liner are from Pottery Barn Kids


I ordered T two new outfits for her Bitty Baby. She is constantly packing up all of her baby's accessories and saying she's going to the pool, so I thought the bathing suit outfit would be perfect! And the little black and white gingham outfit? I couldn't resist! She loves dressing her babies, so I know she will be excited about these!

I threw in 2 new suits from Smocked Auctions for T as well. Summer can not get here fast enough!


These Color Wonder products by Crayola are perfect for toddlers! We also have several of the paint sets that T loves. And the best part? They only show up on the special paper, so momma loves them even more! The coloring pages come in a variety of characters, and you can even buy plain white sheets for your little artist. Mr. Crayola, you are a genius.

T absolutely loves playing with her Leap Pad, and I love it because it's educational, so we got her a new game- Doc McStuffins! She will be one happy little girl.
And, of course, no Easter Basket would be complete without eggs of Play-Doh!

T has been asking for a Sophia cup for months, and I finally came across one at Target! It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but it has Sophia on it and a straw, so T will be one happy girl.
I really don't like to give her much candy; heck, she just had Sprite for the first time the other night! But, during a recent trip to Target, I gave in and bought a big pack of Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs. Hopefully there will be at least one left for her basket! (Sorry, not sorry.)

When I came across this necklace on Etsy, I could not help myself but to purchase it for T! It's even cuter in person, and I can't wait to see her wearing it!

I found some Sophia socks at the dollar spot at Target, so I decided to throw those in too. Besides, she did need some new socks.

Our DVR is loaded up with episodes of Sophia, so I decided it was time to clean it up and buy her some DVD's. These have almost every episode on them, and it sure beats having to fast-forward! And, they come with bonus sing-alongs! YES!

What's in your kid's Easter baskets this year? Join us and link up!

Little Things Wednesday Link-Up

Happy Wednesday, we're halfway through the week!
 Today, I'm linking up with Ashley from Words About Waverly and Jess from Sadie Sky Boutique for "It's the Little Things."

There is something about the sunshine and warm weather that just makes you feel better. Maybe it's because I grew up on the southern coast and spent many a days at the beach, but when I'm outside, especially in the sunshine, my entire mood changes. And I think that rubbed off on my daughter. 

Or, it could be the fact that she gets to do all kinds of fun things when it's nice outside, like ride her Minnie car- a Christmas gift from Santa that she finally used for the first time Sunday!

I think she was just as happy as we were to finally get outside and enjoy the fresh air. She took in all the sights and sounds. She ran around in the grass, and even busted out a forward roll or two. She is going to be so much fun this summer, and I'm so looking forward to it!
I apologize in advance for the picture overload...

Won't you join in the link-up fun?
