Happy Monday!!  I hope you all had a great wknd! I know we did.

We kicked ours off on Friday morning. After taking my daughter to school, the hubs and I decided to run out to the mall. We were planning to take our son, until my mom offered to keep him. So it ended up being a fun morning of shopping and an early lunch date! Oh, and it ended with adorable Easter donuts! Score!

My goal for shopping was to just go to two stores; Victoria's Secret and Macy's. I wanted a new bra, lip stain, and lipglass. Jessica mentioned in a post last week about some great tubes of lip stain at Victoria's Secret.  I really wanted to buy one but wanted to check them out for myself in the store. Well sure enough, once inside, they informed me of the sale. If I bought two tubes ($10 each), I received 2 for free. Needless to say, I left with a bra and 4 tubes of lip glosses. I bought two different shades of the lip stain, a flavored gloss, and a lip plumper. And the best part was that I used a gift card and only ended up spending $13!!

I also ran to Macy's (we don't have a Nordstrom in our town or I would have gone there) for a tube of lipglass that I'd been wanting to try. I was torn between the lipstick and the lipglass, but I'm happy with my decision. The lipglass is very thick and shiny. It'll be a fun shade (Saint Germaine) this summer.

I ended up postponing the egg hunt to Sunday b/c the weather just seemed to cold on Sat. We woke up to a balmy 25 degrees! INSANE! Plan B for Saturday was to dye eggs. We had so much fun! It's always interesting to see how differently my daughter and son handle this activity. ;)

After the egg dying, I spent the rest of the day preparing for the hunt.

 Oh, and using my new mop! I'm telling you, I have never loved a cleaning tool like I love this one. I can't believe I have been cleaning my floors on my hands and knees. This thing is amazing and I'm so glad I discovered it. The only trick is using it withhout my son seeing me b/c he thinks I bought it for him. He loves to clean and thinks it's HIS mop! Ha!

Sunday we went to church then home to get ready for our friends to arrive. The hunt was a success, despite the chilly temps. And I think everyone had a lot of fun!

One of my favorite things I added this year were props for photo-ops! Fun for all ages! Ha!

Don't forget about the adorable Kate Spade studs that are still on sale at Nordstrom. I own a few pairs already and seriously wear them all the time!

AND, it wouldn't be normal if I didn't mention something about the Target and Lilly collaboration. They have released their look book and it is seriously amazing!!!  I am soooo excited for the lauch - April 18th!!

Today I'm linking up with Biana and Meghan for my first "weekending" post.
