It is hard to believe how quickly the year goes by. Yesterday was April 1 and Easter Sunday! I spent a lovely weekend with the hub’s family (he had to work). On Sunday we went to church at Houston’s First Baptist Church. My older sister-in-law is in the choir and we like the pastor and enjoy the message there. After church we had a delicious late lunch and relaxed until I headed home to see the hubs for a few minutes before his shift. My mother-in-law had planned on making Joanna’s Strawberry Shortcake for dessert, but there were no strawberries to be found! Guess everyone had planned on serving something with strawberries 🙂 I can’t wait to try it out when there isn’t a strawberry shortage haha
Lexi loved every minute of the weekend and is currently snoring as I write this post. My in-laws moved to a new house last summer and it sits on beautiful, wooded acreage so the pups run around enjoying the outdoor. Not only does Lexi come home exhausted, but she is usually a filthy mess and therefore gets a bath. Her least favorite thing to do!
While I was in the area I went to Old Navy to see if I could find anything fun for spring. I don’t typically think of Old Navy as a place to go, but I have gift cards to the Gap Brand stores. For some reason all the bright colors and floral patterns drew me in and I bought some great stuff that really puts me in the mood for spring! Plus they had store wide sales. I mean…I got these flip flops in silver for $1.99! Best part is, the majority of the items I purchased can be worn for work and on the weekends. Double win! I also picked up these shorts in pink and think they are going to get a lot of use this summer. A couple of my purchases are no longer available online, but if you don’t normally shop at Old Navy you may want to give it a try for spring/summer.
I hope you have a really productive week! If you want a fun desktop background, check out the ones from The Every Girl. What’s on your calendar for April? Anything exciting? Tell me about it in the comments. Until next post…xoxo Becca

Weekends in the spring and summer seem to stay pretty packed for me. This three day weekend was no different. The hubs worked an extra job at a softball game Friday so a friend and I went and watched the first game of the double header. It was fun and the weather was gorgeous. Saturday the same friend and I went to The Woodlands Margarita Festival. Soooo much fun! The ticket included 8 margarita samples. There were food vendors, shopping, live music, and of course lots of flavored margaritas. We even had one in a pineapple…which leaked on me lol After a few hours at the margarita festival the hubs picked me up and we headed to Katy to spend the rest of the weekend with the family. Chinese takeout for Saturday’s dinner followed by a whole lot of yummy food on Sunday after church. All in all a fun, relaxing weekend! Now back to the daily grind…
Until next post…xoxo Becca
