I was supposed to announce big fun news today but I couldn’t quite pull it together in time (which will make sense once you know the news). What always comes in second to big news? Me modeling easter baskets, obviously.
Target gave me a little challenge – to get creative with an easter basket – using everything from Target. So I guess my version of ‘getting creative’ was to do an easter basket for myself. I just started shopping and shopping and then figured it was a good excuse to have that wallet, scarf and frame (amongst other things).
So yea, happy easter to me.
But rumor has it that children also enjoy an easter basket. So I put one together for Charlie and filled it with books, toys and tried to get healthy with some snacks which I think is just the ‘new mom’ inside of me. I figure he’ll get A LOT of candy this weekend with or without my knowing, so maybe I don’t need to be the one to give my 1-year-old peeps.
So if a lot of you are doing last-minute easter shopping (not sure who does anything BUT last-minute easter shopping besides bloggers) just head on over to Target for all of your Easter basket needs.

We have very little planned for the weekend. We’ll probably go ‘park hopping’ (the new-parent equivalent to bar hopping – looking for the best park with a cool bustling crowd in hopes of meeting other parents, etc) and then someone might hunt an egg or two. I’m reading Sisterland which is pretty awesome and If I have time I’m going to get back into The Americans. Is anyone far enough into it to say its worth it? I started it and then we got distracted or something but we never finished the first season. Or is there something else I should marathon?
Happy weekend. See y’all Monday. xx
