Brighton's First Easter and becoming a typical mom | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Brighton's First Easter and becoming a typical mom

Whoever said holidays are more fun with kids was totally right. Also, I'm pretty sure EVERYONE with kids says that so I decided to add to the census and agree 100%. For Brighton's first Easter, I didn't want to go "over the top" so I kept it simple with a few things I knew she'd love. A little stuffed bunny, a big bouncy ball filled with glitter (lol @ my glitter obsession), and a toy that is honestly more age appropriate for a 2 year old but I decided that when she is 2, the toy probably won't be around still so I got it anyways and plopped it in her basket but it will probably sit in storage until she is 2! Please excuse my use of run on sentences, too. Thanks, guys. Anyways, this post isn't sponsored but THANKS DOLLAR SECTION AT TARGET FOR BRIGHTON'S EASTER GOODIES THIS YEAR. Seriously, I tried so hard to hate Target because I didn't want to scream "typical mom" TOO much, but gosh darn their dollar section has me warming up pretty quick to being typical af.

Anyways, Easter did it's thing all weekend over here. On Saturday, I did an Easter egg hunt for my shop where I hid a few eggs filled with shop credits from myself + a few of my shop friends and posted clues for anyone in Gilbert to come find me and claim the egg filled with merch! I did 3 eggs total and to be honest, I was a tad nervous that NO one would show up and I would look like a loser and be sitting at each location all day. LUCKILY people came! They came QUICK! The first stop, someone showed up like 3 min after I posted the clue, the second stop, someone came like 5 min after I posted the clue, and the third stop, someone literally came 10 SECONDS after I posted the clue!! Like, guys, it was the best thing ever!! Each time someone showed up to claim the egg filled with goodies, I wanted to cry tears of joy haha I was just so happy people participated and were excited about it! With the second egg, I was so excited I asked the girl if I could hug her. HAHAH I am a FREAK you guys. But she agreed and I haven't heard anything about a restraining order so I think it was fine.

Also, s/o to my friend, Ashlie, who came around town with me all day for the egg hunt. She's like 28 weeks pregnant and was the real MVP by sticking with me all day haha :) love you!

Later Saturday we went to my moms house for Easter dinner and my mom got Brighton a chocolate easter bunny. Which translated to be a chocolate bunny for Jason and I bc B is on a strict no sugar diet until she's 1 or something (that's the rule, right??) Sometimes we give her little tastes of sweet stuff, and honestly we just wanted the chocolate bunny to ourselves anyways so, thanks Brighton! Sunday, my dad came over for an Easter lunch and Sunday night was Easter with Jason's family! It was a busy weekend but it was so fun and Brighton had the time of her life with all her cousins!

Hope all of you guys had the best Easter ever!!


  1. She is so darn cute!! I love these photos. :)

  2. How stinkin' cute does B look, I totally think you and Jason should be consuming all the chocolate until she is at least 1. The dollar section is seriously the best, as much as I try to stay away it wins all the time!

  3. What an adorable dress! She is such a cutie!

  4. Omgosh, Candace...that second photo tho...

  5. Such a little sweetie ;) Love all these pictures of her and the eggs. Being a typical mom is TOTALLY OKAY!! xo

  6. I think you guys were super practical with her basket! I don't believe we even made a basket for our little one's first Easter. lol I know I bought a little gray bunny and a book, but that was it. Now that she's 3, it's so much fun and she gets so excited. We didn't do candy in her basket, but cheerios (her obsession) and goldfish. We did a few other little things too all from dollar spot. Seriously they are the best for stocking stuffers too. (; FYI.

    Holidays are soooo crazy busy when you have kids. Everyone wants to see the baby, etc. I guess it's not so bad having family fight for your love though (;

  7. A beautiful chic family!

  8. Cant believe Brighton is seven months old already! Time does fly! I remember reading your blog when you were pregnant and it doesnt seem like it was seven months ago! Hope you and your family are doing well, It looks like you all had an amazing easter! :)

  9. Aww, babies first Easter, so precious!
