Easter Weekend

This past weekend flew by oh so quickly, but it was a good one! I kicked off the weekend by picking up donuts and heading over to my sister's house to play with the girls for a bit! 

I took the girls for a little walk around their neighborhood and then headed back to their house for lunch before heading out for the day.

I put the girls in these little toy boxes and then scooted them across the rug and they thought it was the best thing ever. So funny how the most random things make kids so happy! Also, can we please acknowledge Chloe's little chef's hat that we put on her head? Haha! Love it.

I worked for a bit that afternoon, and then we headed out for date night! We decided to head to Mall of America since it was raining outside and we wanted to walk around somewhere.

We grabbed dinner at Tucci and then browsed the mall for a bit. It was crazy busy on this particular night -- not sure if it's because of spring break or what the deal was! 

We swung by a few of our favorite stores including PaperSource, the Apple store, Barnes & Noble, and DAVIDsTEA (because I'm obsessed with their packaging!).

I loved playing around with the Apple Pencil in Adobe Sketch on the iPads at the Apple store! These make digital lettering so easy!  

Browsing through Barnes & Noble reminded me how long it's been since I've taken the time to look around there! I'm putting a B&N solo date on my calendar for next week! 

Insert all the heart-eye emotions here at DAVIDsTEA! I just love the gold foil, color combos, and patterns that they incorporate onto all of their packaging. So, so pretty.

Since we celebrated Easter last weekend, the rest of our weekend was pretty laid back! After church, we did some spring cleaning of the hall closets and then headed out for a walk down by the lake. It was a gorgeous Easter Sunday -- 65 degrees and sunny!

There's a little trolley car down by the pier that sells Sebastian Joe's ice cream, and we couldn't pass it up! I swear this Oreo ice cream was the best I've ever had -- so many cookie chunks throughout! In case you haven't picked up on the theme yet, my life can basically be summed up as: I go for a lot of walks and enjoy eating ice cream.

All-in-all, it was a great weekend! I'm really excited that it's Monday today because I'll be working on a design project that involves handlettering -- one of my favorite things! 

Best part of your Easter weekend?
