Baby's First Easter | Gift Basket

This Easter is my nephew's first Easter!  You may remember the baby shower I threw my sister here and his debut here.  He has brought so much joy to our family in his 5 months.  I hate living so far away but really enjoy the pictures/videos my sister sends me and when we FaceTime!

Since I won't be back home for Easter, I mailed Elijah his Easter "basket".  I had so much fun putting this gift together and wanted to share in case you have a little one to shop for too.

Baby Polo - how adorable!

Peter Rabbit is one of my favorites.  I found this adorable card at TJ Maxx.

My sister sent me this picture the other day.  I got Elijah the rattle bunny slippers for Christmas.  He now fits into them and loves to kick his feet to hear the rattles. Since they are bunnies, I figured they would also work in this Easter post 😃

and a few more photos my sister shared with me 😍

Happy Easter!

Weekend Compilation

Saturday morning, I woke up to snow, which thankfully was melted by early afternoon.  Sunday was sunny and 52℉, so Mike and I spent the afternoon enjoying the outdoors.  Happy Monday, Friends!

Shopping.  I picked up these garden tools and oven mitts at HomeGoods.

Pastries. There is a country store right down the road with the best homemade pastries.
I got an apple turnover and Mike got a raspberry danish.

Cooking. Sunday night, I made this Cranberry Balsamic Roasted Chicken dish I had pinned awhile back.
It was really good... so good, that it will be added to the frequent list!
