friday five.

Happy Friday! I'm linking up with Christina, April, and Natasha to share a few things that have been on my mind lately:

ONE: How is it Easter this weekend!? With the move and Vi's birthday party I feel like April is flying by and the holiday snuck up on me. Thankfully I have everything set for Vi's Easter basket with the help of Mudpuppy. Vi loves Mudpuppy's jumbo puzzles (she got another one for her birthday), and they were kind enough to send over a few other fun toys. I know she's going to love playing with her new Coloring Roll, Dominoes (yah! family game night!), and Animals of the World Puzzle. I also bought Vi some extra washable crayons, sidewalk chalk, a few Sesame Street toys, and a Trolls sticker and coloring book for her basket. I'm considering throwing in some M&M's because they are her favorite (and the only candy she knows by name), but I shouldn't since I'm already having trouble fitting everything inside her basket!

TWO: Over the past year I've tried lots of natural deodorants -- I wasn't a fan of applying Piper Wei with my fingers and Toms, Lavanila and Schmidt's smelled great but after a week they didn't do anything to prevent wet underarms. ew. Then I saw another blogger's InstaStory (thank you Ally!) and she recommended Bali Secrets. I've been wearing it for a month and it actually works!

THREE: It's been raining like crazy lately so I finally ordered Violet a new jacket for spring. I went with the pink one because I knew she would love it (she does!) and it's wayyy easier to get her out the door in a jacket if she's wearing something that she likes :)

FOUR: I just started watching Catastrophe on Amazon and it's hilarious. The show is about a one-week stand between a Boston ad exec and a London schoolteacher that leads to an accidental pregnancy. I love the chemistry between the two main characters and their banter (which is totally not appropriate for kids, so watch it after you put them to bed). Has anyone else seen it?

FIVE: I kinda dropped the ball on my One Room Challenge update this week because I was busy finishing up our living room so I could do my reveal post but here are a few things I'm considering for our dining room tabletop: a decorative vase or a hurricane with a candle, silver placemats with floral napkins, and maybe a table runner -- floral
stripe / geometric design.

Have a great weekend!
