My Boys // Easter Outfits

Today I’m sharing some stylish Easter outfits for my baby Lincoln from Target Baby as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #TargetCrowd



And to think, I was convinced it would be more fun to dress a baby girl.

We celebrated Easter at church yesterday because next week we'll be home watching General Conference and I am loving any excuse to put little Lincoln in a bow tie. He is growing so quickly that I'm glad this outfit I picked out at Target two weeks ago still fits. I'm also glad little Linc has decided that outfit and diaper changes are no longer the bane of his existence and we can put on cute little button downs and ties without any complaining from this guy.

Far too many pictures of my two guys in their Easter attire:


^Don't worry, we're saving all the coconut truffles for Mom and Dad ;) 
^But really, a plaid bow tie? :)




^real men wear pink



You can find Linc's little outfit here --- I also picked up a few other spring outfits for church at Target that would be great for Easter and I included them on the widget below. There were just too many cute (and affordable) options. Ben's hat is also from Target along with the Easter decor/candy we picked up (that store just has everything). Oh and the little bunny ears are from the dollar spot at Target a few weeks back so I'm not sure if they're still there... but they're pretty cute :)

New Sunday Traditions // Goat Cheese Panini








I think we've found a new Sunday tradition around here and its possibly our tastiest one yet. Now that we're a real family (to me it always seemed a bit funny calling our marriage a "family" before we had a baby...we were more of a couple than a family - but thats just me), I'm taking this creating traditions business seriously. Growing up we had lots of traditions and I realize that whatever habits Ben and I start now can become our own family traditions that Lincoln grows up with.

We have church from 9:30-12:30 and we always come home starving and a bit low on energy (taming a baby for three hours is a tad exhausting..I can't even imagine when its more than one..). We would usually grab a bowl of cereal and take a nap before making anything of real substance. When my parents were in town, my mom made grilled cheese paninis and I've been craving more ever since. Its a great excuse to break out our panini pan and anything with goat cheese is worth looking forward to. I've included our favorite recipe below - but really, with some good turkey and lots of cheese, you can't go wrong :)



What You'll Need:

  • Hillshire Naturals Slow Roasted Turkey Breast
  • Whole grain bread
  • Pepperjack cheese slices
  • Goat cheese
  • Sliced tomato 
  • Spicy brown mustard
  • Butter
What You'll Do:
  • Butter one side of each piece of bread
  • Layer on your mustard, cheese, tomatoes, and turkey 
  • Place on hot panini pan (or regular pan and press down with the clean bottom of another pan).
  • Cook each side on medium for two minutes or until crispy (and the cheese is melted)

*These are pictures from last Sunday and yesterday we made them on whole wheat bagels with Hillshire Honey Roasted Ham with pepperjack and feta cheese. Doing something two weeks in a row makes it a tradition right? My favorite part was that when we got home from church Ben asked, "so should I make paninis?" 
**We've been buying Hillshire products for a few years now and with their new Naturals I really love that there aren't any additives or preservatives. 


Family Blues




Just some family pictures from last Sunday because we all ended up matching for church. After my long winded post yesterday on motherhood, we'll just let these pictures do the talking today.

I did also want to say thank you for all of your kind words on yesterday's post and on instagram. This adjustment to being a mom has been a lot smoother because of the support and kindness from you guys. I know its meant a shift in content, but I am so grateful for those of you who stop by each day and let me share my story (and help me support my family & maintain a creative outlet while selling my soul to this baby).


On me:
jacket: Sheinside, c/o (similar save and splurge options)
bow blouse: old (similar here for under $30)
polka dot pencil skirt: The Limited (last season but I found a very similar one here)
belt: Banana Republic

On Ben:
sweater: GAP, last season (almost the identical color on clearance at Nordstrom Rack here)
watch: Daniel Wellington, c/o
