I honestly cannot believe that Easter is this Sunday!! (insert emoji)  In my head we are still in January meditating on resolutions and being super thankful for  a new start!  I am still thankful for a new start every day and am still working on my resolutions but cannot believe that April is literally next week! Wow… the time is flying!

I am finally home from our quick trip to the UK (look out for a post on that early next week) and getting adjusted to having another baby in the house!! Yes, we have another baby, a fur baby! His name is Charlie and he is a gorgeous black lab.  I have never had a dog or a puppy in my life, so I was freaking out at the idea of owning one! Ben has been wanting a dog since before we got married, now the kids and so I finally caved!  He is sweet though and potty training is going very well! He hates that crate but Ben deals with all the night time shenanigans.  I have to admit, things are going way better than I had anticipated.  I will keep you posted on our new Charlie Ridley adventures!

What are y’all up to this Sunday for Easter?! We are headed to church in the morning and then are spending the afternoon doing Easter egg hunts and having yummy food with friends! With the weather being in the mid 70’s lately and me being all about cute and comfort, I chose the dress below for Easter. Shop The Mint  prides themselves as the fastest growing online women’s retailer in the United States!.  The have SO many options to choose from as well as new arrivals daily.  Be sure to check them out! In the meantime, I hope you all have a fabulous Easter weekend! He Is Risen! xo

    I love that dress on you Ruthie! You look fabulous and your new pup is so cute. The kids have been asking us to get a dog but we’re waiting until they’re a little older so they can help with taking care of it. Dogs are the best – enjoy him! Have a happy Easter! Xoxo

    I have that “dress” in green (Free Prople, right?) but I wear it as a top haha! I wondered if it was supposed to be a dress lol. I’m super tall so shirt it is! You look great. Enjoy your new pup!

    This is such a great Easter dress, and I love it with the pink pumps. Congrats on being a new puppy owner, so adorable (I love that last picture). I wish I could have a dog but alas I travel way too much right now. Something to look forward to in the future. Happy Easter!!
