a 'my favorite things' party

i recently attended a 'my favorite things' party with some dear friends in greenville, south carolina. this was the second annual and i really enjoyed the evening. i brought my clothes/shop and we all mingled, enjoyed food + drinks, and then shared our favorites. the concept is that everyone brings two things that they love (we all went around and shared why/passed the item around) and then you exchange gifts. each gift was around $25 and included one/both of that person's favorite thing(s). the sweet hostess, alissa, always does such a wonderful job of making us all feel so welcomed and even created little swag bags for each of us with some of her favorite things. she made the best dill pickle dip (perfect for a pregnant momma!) and sparkling strawberry lemonade cocktail - i highly recommend them both!

an easter basket for parks

easter is coming soon and so is the easter bunny... even before i became a mom, i loved making my husband an easter "basket" each year. now, as a mom of a toddler, i really enjoy creating a basket for him. however, i think this is the first year that parks will actually understand what is happening (yay!) next year, i might take a toy dump truck or wagon and fill the back with treats but here is what i created for this year.
