New Spring Fashions @ChildrensPlace!

With Easter only a week away... Wait, a week?! How is that possible?! I cannot believe how fast this year is flying by!

Have you located that perfect outfit for your little bunnies?  It is always a struggle to find that perfect spring outfit perfect for Church or my kids favorite, the Easter egg hunts.

After shopping at 3 large department stores, I have finally found their amazingly adorable outfits for the annual Easter Egg Hunts in the new Spring Clothing Line at The Children's Place!  I even used a 25% off coupon which I received by signing up on their email list!  I only found one thing wrong with shopping at the store.  There were 4 outfits that I absolutely LOVED for my little girl!

Top Easter Egg Hunts for the More Adventurous

Not ANOTHER Easter Egg Hunt list!

As much fun as Easter Egg Hunts are, there gets a point of really? Do we have to watch the same thing over and over? We adults, enjoy watching our young children looking for eggs in an open space with not much of a challenge. How about as they get a little older? Is there anything different?

Why yes, there is!

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day!

While you might not be Irish, on one day of the year, everyone has a free pass to be an honorary one. I am talking of St. Patrick's Day!

We see even the most conservative people wear a shamrock or a spot of green somewhere on their person.  The traditions accompanied by this holiday vary.  Some watch parades, drink green beer, hunt for rainbows with that elusive pot 'o gold, and some even die their hair red or green in the spirit of that lucky day.
