Five on Friday!

Our house is recovering from the stomach flu earlier this week. It’s been terrible. Thomas couldn’t keep anything down all last weekend so we took him to the doctor on Monday morning and found out he also has a double ear infection. He is so pitiful and will only sleep cuddled up on top of me or Matt, which is terrible timing considering my recovery. By Tuesday mom came down with the same thing and ended up pushing her flight home to this afternoon so she doesn’t expose dad to our virus. But we are finally on the mend and are looking forward to a healthy weekend ahead!

one. Now that we have an extra hour of sunlight and the weather is warmer we are starting our wagon ride routine back! There is something magical about the wagon that makes Caroline eat 80% more of dinner so I usually pack up her finger foods in a tupperware container and by the time we get home she’s finished her dinner (although a few pieces usually get thrown overboard). 

And because we have a long history of being too impatient to save gifts for the holidays, here are a few of our favorite Bella Tunno Easter basket items for the kiddos…

Hope Frog / Dream BunnyOrange Dinosaur Blanket / Pink Flamingo Blanket / Happy Knees / Animal Parade Bodysuit / Paci Clip

two. Last week my mom made us the most delicious Zesty Lime Fish Tacos (pre-stomach bug!!) and they were so awesome I have to share. Also, I think the key ingredient here is the taco shells…they are actually made with a biscuit! In fact, I am pretty sure this recipe won a Pillsbury bake-off competition. Anyway, MAKE THEM! Zesty Lime Fish Taco recipe here.

PS – my picture doesn’t come close to showcasing the deliciousness of these tacos.

three. Aunt Lindsey was here this week! The kiddos had the very best time with her too. She surprised them by picking them up from school and Caroline went absolutely crazy when she spotted her from across the playground and sprinted into her arms.

four. Charlotte friends! My good friend Sara just opened a super cute monogramming business that you need to check out. Her work is incredible and her prices are reasonably since she doesn’t have the overhead costs of a store-front (or ahem, rude employees…looking at you *&*!) and her turnaround time is super quick. She has weather proof drop off and a pick up bins on her front porch in Cotswold and “store hours” by appointment so you can take a look at all of the goodies and fonts up close. I’ve already had many items monogrammed in the last few weeks including this adorable shirt (provided by her) below, tops for both Thomas and Caroline, towels, seersucker shorts and just dropped Easter items to her.

    I am so sorry that you all were hit by the stomach bug, but glad that everyone is starting to feel better. Poor Thomas, he has had such a tough time of it! I love your Easter basket goodies. I had never heard of Bella Tunno, but now I have several items on my wish list! Have a wonderful (and healthy) weekend!

    I just love the way you dress your kids. Have you ever done a post about where you get most of their clothes? Inquiring minds would love to know. Hope you're all on the mend, sick babies are so sad!

    I made these tacos tonight and they are really good. Just used regular tortillas but followed the recipe otherwise. I love the recipes that you post!
