Five Favorites Vol. 28

"Books are for reading! Not eating!" I think I've said that phrase at least 20 times today. It's great that they love books but I need them to realize that their nutritional value is pretty low.... That's basically the kind of day we're having. Thankfully my book eating babies are finally napping so I can hum head first into my to-do list. But first, my Five Favorites!

This week my favorites are pretty heavy on spring/Easter. And while I'm super excited for Easter, I'm trying to make sure I'm focused on everything that led up to that glorious morning. We've had all of lent to improve our prayer life and draw us closer to God and Holy Week is the final push! As a family we are spending more time in silence and prayer. We also try to participate in as much of Holy Thursday and Good Friday as we can.

So with all that said.... Here are my "can't wait until Sunday!" five favorites!

1) Fresh Flowers

SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSCI love the smell of fresh flowers! They just brighten up whatever area they're in. And I really wanted to keep using my gold vases haha.

2) Bright Lips

SONY DSCThis whole lipstick thing is starting to become a bit of an obsession... {{Pictured: Lip Tar-Sephora, EOS-Target, Revlon Color Burst-Walgreens}}

3. Pretty Polish

SONY DSCI can't decided which one to wear for Easter! Growing up, my mom would always let me pick out a nail polish for Easter and then paint my nails before going to church. She still does the same for all my sisters. Such a special memory.

4) Headbands

SONY DSCMom uniform: Top Knot, headband, and semi-clean clothes (as far as you know). I love these headbands made with german ribbon from Murabelle. I think they might have even been a past favorite too. Eh. Oh well! That top red one I wore in labor with James!

5) Happy Mommy Box

SONY DSCHappy Mommy Box keeps delivering the goods! This subscription is my favorite!!!

Tomorrow I'll be posting the "behind the scenes" details of my Easter Brunch shoot. After that I won't be blogging for a few days. Like I said above, I'll be taking time to focus on the Triduum and family time.

See you tomorrow!
