Weekend Recap - Easter Edition

Easter has become one of my favorite holidays. I love celebrating the reason that we all are able to have eternal life. Being on staff at a church, it's a busy, but very exciting time of year. I love everything about it. The egg hunts, big crowds at church, Easter outfits, and most of all, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ!

I took Friday off since Carsen's school was closed for Good Friday. We went shopping to finish putting together Easter outfits. Obviously, I had her dress forever ago, but waited until the last minute to get mine and Jake's together. I publicly make the declaration that I will not wait until the last minute to do this next year. She does great running errands and being out and about all day, but I want to be able to soak up every minute of this time with Carsen creating traditions. And not traditions like running around crazy at the last minute to find Easter outfits. #guilty

It was a fun day together, but it would be a lot less stressful if I had done it earlier. I want to have time to color eggs and do all those fun things with her! Someone hold me to my word next year!

Miss Carsen was looking super cute in her Easter shirt for the Easter EGGstravaganza! Thanks, TK, for making such a cute shirt!

These two. I die. They're going to be the cutest little friends growing up. Despite the rain, so many people still came out for the egg hunt. We all made it and the skies cleared up right as it was ending. Everyone seemed to have a great time! I didn't want to play 15,000 egg pickup, so I'm glad the egg hunt was a go. :)

After having to run back to the mall to grab a few things for my outfit and Jake's outfit Saturday after the EGGstravaganza and worship practice (remember, I'm not waiting until the last minute again next year), this is the outfit I ended up with. Being the high-quality fashion blogger that I am (not!), I present to you an awesome selfie iPhone pic. ;) I found the dress at Belk, necklace at Charming Charlie's and wedges from Target (last year).

This was my first time shopping at Charming Charlie's and I think I might become a regular. Super cute jewelry!

My whole world in one picture! Might I add, it took two, yes TWO, shots to get this picture. Smiley baby for the win! We had three great services at church! It's so much fun leading worship to a crowd full of energy and excitement to celebrate our risen Savior!

Love my sweet, sweet girl! She's just so much fun! I always tell people I miss her being tiny, but I enjoy everything she does as she grows and learns new things!

Speaking of learning new things...we tried rice cereal for the first time for dinner on Easter!

Poor girl was not a fan! It was super runny to get her used to a spoon, so that didn't help. It was everywhere! She went straight to take a bath, and since that's the happiest place on Earth in her opinion, I finished feeding her there. She had had enough in the high chair. She finished the bowl like a champ in the bathtub!

No better way to end Easter than relaxing and watching TV with these two. Side note...I did all of that hard work, and she looks nothing like me! #twins

I hope you had a great weekend celebrating Easter! He is risen!
