our weekend

I hope everybody had a wonderful weekend! Ours was a lot of fun and I got to do a lot of relaxing {read: bubble baths every night and a spa pedicure}, which was perfect before our busy week ahead. We have close friends in town from California this week visiting with their beautiful new baby girl and we have been making some progress on our babe's nursery while also getting ready for Olivia's 2nd birthday party this weekend. We found the perfect chandelier on Friday and will be hanging it up in the nursery tonight. When we were pregnant with Olivia, we chose a chandelier for her nursery and I knew I wanted to do the same for her little sister.

We spent our weekend eating lots of good food {including my favorite bakery treat - tea cakes!}, grilling out and getting some things done around the house. Dustin surprised me with a fun trip to a new Nordstrom Rack that just opened {seriously, amazing!} and I picked out a new watch + wallet that I've had my eye on for some time. Olivia chose a beautiful floral scarf for me and then decided to keep it for herself. 

Mother's Day this year was extra special since I was able to celebrate with both my little girls. Dustin took Olivia to one of my favorite boutiques last week {without me knowing} so she could choose a card for me. Best gift ever. There is nothing sweeter than seeing your little girl's color crayon scribbles inside a card that she chose all by herself. He gave me a beautiful necklace with our girls' names engraved that I can't wait to share soon!

We ended our weekend with lots of books in bed and surrounded by fresh cut lilacs, my favorite. I am continually amazed at this life I have been given and the gift of motherhood and my two daughters. My heart fills more every day. XO
