Favorite Spring Things

 

I think it’s kind of hilarious that as I’m writing this post about spring, the forecast says snow tomorrow! I just can’t win when it comes to weather this year.

Well April 1st is tomorrow and hopefully we will start to see some spring soon! In honor of the season, I’m sharing some of my favorites for Spring right now. Categories include toys, baby product, craft, Easter accessory, style, food and drink, and fitness.

Enjoy, and have a great weekend!

BABY PRODUCT

One of my favorite baby products all year round is my Aden and Anais baby blankets, but they are just perfect for spring. Lightweight and comfortable, they are perfect for strollers, car seats, or  just to cuddle up with if there’s a light breeze!

INDOOR TOY 

Plastic colored eggs are the perfect versatile toy. Great for an Easter egg hunt, but did you know the dozens of other uses they have? Not to mention, my toddler just loves to play with them just the way they are! Here are some great ideas and uses for plastic eggs.

OUTDOOR TOY 

We love our Radio Flyer bike. It’s a well made, versatile bike that grows with your child. James still likes being in the stroller, but we always use this when we have two adults to walk and he absolutely loves it!

CRAFT

There are too many great spring crafts to choose from! I always go for easy, and I love using plastic bottles as a stamp for a fun flower shape. Here are some more fun ideas to try with your toddler.

EASTER ACCESSORY 

I love Pottery Barn for their personalization, and their Easter baskets are just adorable! Here’s James and his basket from last year. SO sweet!

STYLE

I LOVE bold colors for spring and summer. I went to my first LuLaRoe party last weekend and fell in love with their leggings (I know, I’m not the first person to!). They are so comfy and perfect for my lifestyle ;). I’m not quite brave enough to wear the crazy colored ones out and about but they’re great for home and for walking. I just had to get the apple ones of course! Hopefully someday I’ll get to wear them to school ;).

I’m loving lighter hair this spring, and when I decided to cut my hair (for the first time in 6 months) tonight, I got a few highlights too! I didn’t get to take a good photo of my hair  because it wasn’t great lighting, but if I remember I will put one up soon! It’s kind of bayalage-ish, like the photo above! I just wanted something natural to bring out natural highlights, and I’m always cautious with my hair! It definitely felt good to get a few inches off too.

FOOD AND DRINK 

One of my favorite parts of nice weather is iced coffee! I love a medium coconut iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts. SO refreshing! Did you know they might get rid of the Coolatta this summer and replace it with another frozen drink? I never buy it, and think it’s a little sweet, so that’s fine with me but I know some people are not happy!

FITNESS

I’ve been really into abs lately (since the summer is quickly approaching, and well, we’ve been stuck home lately!). There are some great exercises you can do without any equipment to tighten up your tummy, and also some I love with the exercise ball. You can find a full list and description (with videos!) HERE on Womanista. After two summers in a row being pregnant, I am SO excited to wear an actual bathing suit this year and enjoy a few margaritas here and there ;).

As Easter approaches and the warm weather begins to show its face (hopefully next week!) it’s time to THINK SPRING! Hopefully this post got you in the mood because I know it helped me!
