MY TOP 8 KID FRIENDLY MOVIES AND 5 KDRAMAS RECOMMENDATIONS...



On the weekends, the children have a fair amount of time watching tv because they work extremely hard during the week. We've had several movies on rerun because they love them so much. I thought I would round up our top 10 favorite children movies for y'all! 

I also watched my first Korean Drama last month and I seriously can't stop. The writing and stories behind the ones I've watched are so different from anything I've seen. Like my sister says, the writing focuses a lot on character development and it makes you feel so invested into the characters. With Korean Dramas, majority of the shows only have 1 season. Each season averages around 16 episodes and are around an hour long. We're watching them on Netflix or VIKI

OUR FAVORITE MOMMY AND ME DRESSES RESTOCKED...





DRESSES: Ivy City Co 

I've been waiting so long to share these photos because Chloe just looks so freaking adorable and these mom and mini dresses are to die for. They've been sold out for awhile and are finally restocked. I love that it's a mid length because Chloe can really grow into it. She's wearing a 12-18 months and typically wears at 18months-2T. 

These pictures really do make me miss our normal life but at the same time, I'm trying to soak up all of this time with my family. Chloe has become such a homebody that when she gets in the car for even 10 minutes, she's screaming the entire time, lol. It's crazy because my siblings and I grew up in a lifestyle like this. We were at home 95% of the time and did simple things like watching 1 movie, ride bikes around the neighborhood, play hide and seek, and just things before technology really blew up. My mom moves into her new home Friday and we're helping her set everything up. The boys will have so much fun riding around the neighborhood lake and spending time with their grandparents. These simple things in life are starting to appeal to me more and more. It really lets us take a step back from our busy life and dedicate more time with family.

I hope y'all are all staying safe and sound!

OUR EASTER PLANS...




DRESS: Petal & Pup // SHOES: Raye The Label // BAG: Teddy Blake (on sale!)

To be honest, I didn't think we'd be celebrating Easter at home. My super hopeful self thought that this would be all over by the end of March. Regardless, being at home isn't going to stop our family from celebrating Easter is this upcoming weekend. We are finally able to see Tommy this week. It has been 3 weeks since we've seen each other. I can't believe it has been this long. When we started to practice social distancing, all of the kids and I stayed in Houston because we were getting a bit sick and showing little signs (coughing, allergies, etc). To stay on the safe side, we had to stay home for 14 days. During that time, Tommy also started to feel under the weather so we had to start 14 days after that time period for us to visit Tommy in Killeen. (Which is 3 1/2 hours away from Houston). This week marks us at both 14 days quarantine after showing signs of sickness. 

Tommy is super excited to "host" Easter at his place this weekend. He's already talking about the children's Easter basket stuffers and what we're going to do. Instead of staying in our pajamas like we've done the past 20+ days, we want to spend the day as normal. We're going to get dressed up, enjoy breakfast as a family, have an Easter egg hunt, decorate eggs, and spend the rest of the day at home together. I snagged this dress awhile ago and it was just fitting for Easter. Traveling to Tommy's gives me another excuse to wear my Teddy Blake bag out. When I saw this bag online, I was drawn to the shape and the suede color. When I finally got it in the mail, I instantly fell in love! Y'all know what I'm talking about right? That first love you get when you see a beautiful bag or pair of shoes that you have to have. This Kate Duo bag is extremely versatile, it converts into a crossbody with the adjustable strap or you can wear it as a tote. I can't wait for this to be over to wear it out more. 

Thank you so much for reading!
