I'm One of THOSE Moms!

How many of you mom's like to match your families for Easter? Don't tell me I'm the only one? I actually bought my dress first this year, and decided to match everyone in my fam from there. I'm sure my husband thoroughly appreciates that {NOT}. I am usually quite the tightwad, if you know me in real life, you're laughing right now. It took me a while to convince myself to spend $30 on this dress (I've turned into such the opposite of my teen years), but knew I'd wear it all summer, and if I'm being super honest, I RARELY shop for myself. The girls dresses, I found at Old Navy, and they couldn't be more perfect. I like to match the kids sometimes, but not have them wearing the same thing, just matching style I guess. Gerrad is easy, all I had to do was just pick a button down shirt for him to coordinate with us :) 

Here's my dress. This photo definitely doesn't do it justice, it's cream, light pink, charcoal grey and tan.

  
Here is Addaline's dress, it's a light tan color, and the flower and trim has a bit of gold thread.
  
Gerrad gets off the hook with just wearing a pink button down

Macie's dress, which I LOVE! If they made it in my size, and it wouldn't make my hips look ginormous, I'd totally wear it :) 
I'm hoping I can get a few decent family photos at church, or after! The girls are SO excited about hunting for eggs (Addaline more so than Macie). I got them some fun stuff for vacation for their Easter baskets. A few plain shirts that I can make into cute shirts for Disney, tote bags for them to help me decorate as their carry on's for the plane, and a LITTLE bit of candy (I'm a nazi about them eating too much candy). 

Stay tuned for some super fun pics from a gender reveal party that we went to for some of our best friends, Friday night! I'll post them tomorrow! Hope y'all are having a great Monday!
