A White Christmas

There is nothing more magical to me than seeing All White.  When I look outside after a fresh snowfall.  I admire an all white outfit and even more so an entire room in white.  Here are my all White picks. . . . oh so fun!

We're loving how fashion blogger Christine Andrew styled our ivory high low sweater - add brown accessories and a little sparkle to an all white outfit for a chic fall look #fallfashion

I'd totally do this if my hubby had to go away at Christmas for some strange reason....i LOVE all the white. ~~sigh~~

In the Know: An all white outfit is one trend we HAD to jump on board with! Adding pumps makes for an on-point day-to night outfit!
Flowers: 30 paper white narcissi, 25 white ranunculas, 25 white single tulips, 15 white hyacinths

Our Easter fun

Easter & our boys

P1010874This year James wanted to place the eggs in the boiling water (only broke 7)

P1010881  We went with ego egg dye from William Sonoma & Kool Aid!





P1010981The eggs turned out just as well with eco dyes!


For every holiday we have quite a book collection (from my teacher years!)


One of my favorite books…”The Truth about Easter Rabbits”



Love what they say about Easter Rabbits


Ace loves Easter.  He would never miss out on all the fun!


My attempt to make breakfast



The hunt is on

P1010932 P1010954

Every year John finds less eggs but gets more dollar bills

P1010950Jame found 27 of the 50 eggs


Stickers, change, dollars, stamps & bubbles come in our eggs


Easter ears a must


Egg fight fun

Our Easter isn’t fancy but it’s fun and while our boys are young we want them to believe in the magic of Easter.

Holiday Hair

The way you style your hair is just as important as your outfit.  These hair styles are stunningly festive!  Just make sure you give yourself enough time to style your hair.  Pretty from head to toe!

Sweet Stocking Stuffers

I find most of these products worth using or absolutely gorgous, so why not give them to your own family.  I always wrap my stocking gifts and I like a lot of little gifts in a stocking, since they’re like the icing on the cake, why not make all your gifts sweet.
