Happy Spring! I didn’t even realize that yesterday was the 21st, missed opportunity on the Spring party! We are definitely feeling the season already, our grass has turned green and all the Bradford Pears are blooming and killing my sinuses. I welcome the few weeks of nice weather that we will have before it gets to hot and unbearable. I am sure Zoe and I will appreciate the outside time.

This weekend we ventured out to grab some donuts from Heavenly Donuts. Their lavender lemon ones are my absolute favorite, and they only have them for a limited time each spring. Zoe enjoyed an M&M and strawberry one.

Zoe also found this Fancy Nancy tea party set that she wanted. She has played with it ALL weekend, so totally worth it. It also fits her Disney “toddler” dolls and the American Girl size dolls. Now to just find somewhere to keep it. Toy storage is the bane of my existence.

I even put on real clothes Saturday for the occasion. I haven’t worn jeans in forever. They are definitely not my favorite and I am glad that dress season is just about here. I much prefer dresses to pants. I got these Kut From the Kloth jeans several years ago from Nordstrom Rack for like $8!!! They are the exact style of the boyfriend/mom ankle cut jeans that seem to be trending right now….minus the rips and tears. I do not like buying jeans that are “distressed.” It isn’t my “look” that I go for. I am not cool enough to pull it off.

Sunday morning, Zoe was up early and we cleaned up her playroom and bedroom. I organized a few things differently to see if it helps keep it nicer longer. We came downstairs and made breakfast, and then cleaned the floors and picked up around the house. I had an order from Publix that we needed to pick up, so we decided to go to Freddie’s for Diet Pepsis for Chris and I….and some vanilla custard for Zoe. Ice cream and donuts in the same weekend….lucky kid! The look of pure bliss on her face was priceless. She said it was the best ice cream in the whole world.

For dinner last night, I made the chicken enchilada with cauliflower rice recipe again. I promise I will post it this week! It is pretty easy to come together and looks fancy in the skillet cooking. If you are looking for a healthy, low carb chicken recipe….it is definitely a keeper.

Other than that, we mostly hung around the house this weekend playing games, taking walks and reading books. I finished Before I Saw You and started The Bromace Book Club, which had just come in from the library. I got The Lost Apothecary from BOTM and I really want to get to it…but the library book was one I was on the wait list for forever for…so I must read it first!

I also got a fun package from BzzAgent in the mail. Lancome has been super kind to me lately. They chose me for a foundation and mascara campaign a few weeks ago, and this time I got a full size bottle of La Vie Est Belle Soleil Cristal. It smells so amazing and is in a GORGEOUS iridescent  holographic bottle. It has a light floral scent with a hint of mandarin and bourbon vanilla. It is soft and feminine and the scent lasts alllllll day which I really appreciate. It is definitely up there with my favorite scents and is perfect for spring/summer. Look how pretty the bottle is!

Linking up with Tanya for Hello Monday.

    I love your Fancy Nancy tea party – how precious is that.

    Ok now I’m totally craving donuts! Those look amazing and so do the enchiladas! And girl I hear ya on jeans, I’ve worn them maybe twice this past year and as soon as I come back through the door it’s back to leggings – ha!

    The chicken enchilada remake sounds really good. We haven’t played our Monopoly yet and this reminds me to do that. Those jeans look great on you. I wear them about 4 times a month now and that is it. I am more about shorts, dresses, skirts and leggings. My girls would love that Fancy Nancy tea set.

    Love seeing a shot of you all cute and dressed. The amount of sugar my child gets on the weekend is comical sometimes. I bribe him so much to sleep that he makes sure to cash in on the weekends ;-). It looks like you had a nice and productive time.

    That is the cutest Fancy Nancy tea set, and oh how I remember those days of toy storage issues! Love your display with the perfume and pretty pink print. Thanks for linking up with Hello Monday! Tanya – The Other Side of the Road

    I’m definitely trying to enjoy the nicer weather before it gets TOO hot. I get hot real easy anyway, so it can be a problem. LOL I have The Lost Apothecary from BOTM too, but who knows when I’ll get to it? Hopefully soon because it’s been one I’ve wanted to read for awhile now.

    Mmmm….those donuts look amazing. I got some from Krispy Kreme for St. Patrick’s Day and they were divine.

    I got some new dresses for this spring with pockets. Let’s do this, dress season!

    Still dying over your donut. It looks so perfect to me.

    First of all, I wrote down your recipe for the low-carb chicken enchiladas and I’m making it this week! I have everything but the cilantro but I will get that. Sounds so good. Second, Zoe Is definitely living her best life! That little Tea set is so cute and now I’m so hungry for vanilla custard! LOL

    Oh man! I haven’t been to Heavenly in….dang, since Magic City Blogger days!! I always forget about them since Hero is so much closer. Jeans are the devil – bring on dress season!
