One. A Note of Thanks
I stumbled across this great read earlier in the week and bookmarked it to share today... this rings SO true for many reasons, most of which that these ladies are still my best friends and I can't imagine my life without them. For being the best partners-in-crime, for giving unfiltered honesty, for not judging, for the best road trips, and SO many other things, I am forever grateful. READ THIS NOW.
10 Things You Should Thank Your College Best Friends For Right Now
Two. Abstract Maxi Dress 
I saw this post the other day via a favorite IG blogger (Guiliana Rancic's assistant Sarah) and fell in love with the dress she was wearing... lucky for me, I found it at Forever 21 so basically she and I are twins-haha, I know I can dream!! Cannot wait to make this a summertime staple for casual outings.
Three. Keeping a Clean Home
Spring is in full force and with that comes SPRING CLEANING... get excited!!! Yes, I am a crazy person when it comes to deep clean and get rid of the clutter that clogs up my house so a checklist is ALWAYS a big help for me to knock things out quickly and efficiently. I love how the one I've featured above is great for tacking things daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonally so it's attainable for crazy schedule people (i.e. me and you, right?).
Four. Lilly Pulitzer for Target. 
April 19th is going to be a big one for the store with the bulls eye with their newest collaboration set to launch for Lilly Pulitzer! I can't lie... I get giddy over these brand features that they spotlight a few times a year and it's a fun way to stock up on goodies for a fraction of the price of their normal prices. Topping my list are a few coverups, those amazing white eyelet shorts, and some of the toddler girl items... PLEASE have coordinating mommy and mini options!! You better bet I'll be at Target that morning fighting with the other ladies for some new loot to add to my closet...
Five. Easter Weekend Fun
This weekend, we have big family plans! We are headed up to Knoxville to celebrate our niece's 2nd birthday and then returning home so that we can be here for Easter celebrations on Sunday with the family, followed by brunch at Mimi and Pappy's. I've got the girls dresses all ready to go with coordinating cardigans in case it's a bit chilly, and my new dress and wedges, too! At the end of the day though, it's not about putting on our best, but remembering why we celebrate Easter and knowing that He is Risen. Happy Easter friends...
Want to know what my other ladies are up to? HOP on over to spend a few minutes today visiting April, Christina, and Darci and all the other amazing friends who link up with us each and every week... we heart you!

  2. Definitely pinned the clean your home image. I am crazy for Spring Cleaning and it usually takes me awhile because...I do it 2x a year (I believe in a fall cleaning too :))

  3. I hope you have an amazing weekend with your family! I CANNOT wait for the Lilly line at Target - lucky for me, Lilly's not as huge in Maine, so I don't think I'll be doing a ton of fighting, but we also won't have as big of a selection, I'm guessing. #firstworldproblems ;)

  4. Have so much fun celebrating Easter this year! I love y'alls Easter outfits - so cute :) I am so pumped for the Lilly line at Target!! My hubby thinks it'll be around for a while so no rush to run out to the store - FALSE. I'm hoping since I live in a small town with 80% elderly people that it won't be a mad rush on Sunday.

  5. Thanks for hosting, this is my first time linking up on your page and I am looking forward to exploring your site more! :) I will definitely be pinning that cleaning schedule, and I am also hoping it will be warm enough for me to wear my Easter dress. Have a blessed Easter!

  6. I cannot wait to log back into IG on Easter to follow your fav IG blogger! I also have every intention of being outside my local Target around 8am on the 19th haha! I don't want to have to duke it out with all the sorority girls, so my plan is to go in, buy literally everything I want, then take it home and try it on and pray that it fits! Happy Easter!

  7. I'm really hoping that the Lilly sale isn't a Missoni situation and gone in 60 seconds!
