To be honest, I didn’t think we’d be celebrating Easter at home. My super hopeful self thought that this would be all over by the end of March. Regardless, being at home isn’t going to stop our family from celebrating Easter is this upcoming weekend. We are finally able to see Tommy this week. It has been 3 weeks since we’ve seen each other. I can’t believe it has been this long. When we started to practice social distancing, all of the kids and I stayed in Houston because we were getting a bit sick and showing little signs (coughing, allergies, etc). To stay on the safe side, we had to stay home for 14 days. During that time, Tommy also started to feel under the weather so we had to start 14 days after that time period for us to visit Tommy in Killeen. (Which is 3 1/2 hours away from Houston). This week marks us at both 14 days quarantine after showing signs of sickness.
Tommy is super excited to “host” Easter at his place this weekend. He’s already talking about the children’s Easter basket stuffers and what we’re going to do. Instead of staying in our pajamas like we’ve done the past 20+ days, we want to spend the day as normal. We’re going to get dressed up, enjoy breakfast as a family, have an Easter egg hunt, decorate eggs, and spend the rest of the day at home together. I snagged this dress awhile ago and it was just fitting for Easter. Traveling to Tommy’s gives me another excuse to wear my Teddy Blake bag out. When I saw this bag online, I was drawn to the shape and the suede color. When I finally got it in the mail, I instantly fell in love! Y’all know what I’m talking about right? That first love you get when you see a beautiful bag or pair of shoes that you have to have. This Kate Duo bag is extremely versatile, it converts into a crossbody with the adjustable strap or you can wear it as a tote. I can’t wait for this to be over to wear it out more.
Thank you so much for reading!
