Hey everyone! Hope each and every one of you had an amazing Easter weekend! Ours was all kinds of busy, but we were able to enjoy a nice Easter dinner yesterday with family and the boys had a blast hunting eggs in the yard. It’s been awhile since I’ve did a life update post, so I thought today I’d share what’s been happening in my world lately.
Life Lately in Photos- Spring Edition
First things first, my little cutie pie turned 5 back in February! I cannot fathom how he is already 5 years old and will be starting kindergarten soon. Ahh, time slow down please!
Anyways, we threw him a special Mickey Mouse themed party at our house with family and here’s a shot of the homemade birthday cake I created for him. I tried out a new whipped buttercream recipe, and it was so light and delicious! Here is where I found the recipe.
Shortly after that we had a little incident with a puppy bite to the ear where little man had to be rushed to the ER for stitches. I know he had to have been in a lot of pain, but it warmed my heart so much the following night when I went in to check on him and him and his brother were laying like this. They’re best buds and it’s the sweetest.
I also recently chopped my hair off and although there are days where I miss my long locks, it’s so much easier to style and manage. I have the thickest hair known to man, so I’m happy to have cut down the “get-ready” time in the mornings a little bit. Also, I like that it’s an inverted bob which makes me feel super sassy!
As I shared in this post over here, I shared my 8 year anniversary with my husband on March 6th! I rarely ever get any photos with him (he’s not a picture fan), but I’m
forcing asking him very nicely to take some professional photos with me soon!
We never really had the fairy tale photography when we first got married, so I’d really like to get some nice portraits made together. I bought a cute little white dress and everything, so he’s definitely following through now! 😉
Other than that, we’ve simply been enjoying the warmer days outside and I’ve loved seeing all the beautiful flowers pop up around the yard! The kids of course love when the warm months hit because they’re all about bouncing on the trampoline 24/7. Which I can’t really lie, I’m actually a huge fan too- haha!
Oh yeah, remember Brady our miniature goldendoodle? Well let’s just say he’s not so much a little puppy anymore. This was taken just the other day for his 6 month photo!

Lovely photos! I know it isn’t easy cutting long hair but yours looks stunning!

Happy birthday to your little guy! I hope he had an amazing birthday party — I love the Mickey Mouse theme! Also, your hair looks amazing.

Loved getting a chance to catch up on a few posts that I’ve missed over the last few weeks! ❤☺
Thanks Kiara! 🙂
Happy Monday! I love your new haircut! I felt the same way when I had an inverted bob…sassy and a little edgy. 🙂 I’m growing my hair out a little bit now so that I can braid it throughout the summer, but it was so much easier when it was a little shorter.
Thank-you! It is nice to be able to create up-do’s and braids during the summer! 🙂
I LOVE the haircut! And congratulations on your anniversary!
Thanks Melissa! 🙂
You’re hair looks great! Also sorry to hear about your baby getting stitches. I hope he is doing better and loved that Mickey Mouse cake!
Thank-you! It was fun to make!
It looks like you’ve had a lovely season so far! Your kids are precious and it looks like it was a fun birthday party. 🙂
It was so much fun! And thank-you!
I haven’t seen your hair yet, where have I been?! So cute, and oh not to stitches…boo! Poor guy, but sibling love is just the best. Can’t wait to see the photos of you two!
Haha no worries girl! With Instagram’s algorithm lately I unfortunately miss so many of my favorites’ posts. And thanks I’m looking forward to them!
Aw, poor little man! And stitches, too…hope he’s feeling better. And your hair looks so cute!
Thanks Lee Anne! Thankfully all is well now and it healed super fast!
Awe, hate that your poor baby had to have stitches…but that picture sure is sweet!

Thank-you! And I know he’s huge now lol it’s crazy to look back at his puppy photos and see the difference.
aww your pic of your boys! so cute. hope his ear heals quickly.
Thank-you! Surprisingly it healed super fast. I was all freaked out thinking the worst lol but he just has a tiny little scar now that you don’t even notice hardly.
Beautiful photos of spring and Easter. You do a great job with picture taking. Thanks for Sharing.
Thank-you Mindy! 🙂
What a bummer about the ear injury, I hope he’s feeling better soon! Your hair looks so cute!
Thanks so much! He just has a tiny scar now, so all is well thankfully!
Your pup is adorable!! Happy Spring!
Thank-you! Same to you! 🙂
Your hair looks fabulous! And how sweet was that Mickey themed party? Sorry about little man’s ear, but so glad he’s ok <3
Thank-you! I think all little kids love mickey mouse so it was a win-win! 🙂
Stitches?! Oh no! But other than that I’m glad you had such a fun time celebrating life!
Thank-you! He just has a tiny scar now, so all is well but it was definitely a scary moment!
Cara, your hair is so adorable. I love the length and it’s perfect for Spring and Summer. Also, the boys are so cute and they’re getting so BIG.
Thanks so much! And I know, I’m ready for time to SLOW down lol!
I LOVE your new hair! It’s so gorgeous girl! And so sorry to hear about the puppy bite incident. I had a similar incident happen to me and my arm last week and it suck. It’s super cute seeing the boys snuggling though! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes
Thanks girly! I hate to hear you had a similar incident- hope all is well! 🙂
I’m glad you enjoyed your Easter! The oup sure has gotten big! That’s so great you guys are taking professional photos! Pictures are so important in life!
Thanks! I know he’s huge now! And I’m looking forward to having them made! 🙂
Ok the pics of those sweet boys snuggling?! HEART MELTING. I can’t wait until mine bond more (it’s just starting, and I want to burst every time I see it). And I can’t believe you made that cake! WHAAA?!?!
It’s always sweet to watch a friendship of siblings unfold. It really is the cutest! & thank-you!
Your boys are so freaking adorable. My puppy bit me my oldest when he was a 12 months old but it wasn’t so bad. Sucks when your own puppy does it.
Thank-you! Yeah, they were playing and his razor sharp puppy teeth got caught on it, but thankfully all is well now! It was scary at first though!
Love the pic of the boys on the steps. Great idea to take some pro pics with your husband if you never really did them the first time around!
Thanks! Yeah, he tries to avoid them at all cost so we’ve never had any professionally made, but after being together for a decade I’m determined we will have some made now! lol
Brady is just the cutest! I wanna go snuggle him! He looks like a cuddly teddy bear!!! Sorry to hear about little man’s ear!!! My nephew was attacked by a dog last year and had to have plastic surgery to correct the area, so I know how scary that is. I hope that he is feeling better!!! The Mickey cake turned out so cute!!!
Thanks! He’s such a little clown- always into something and making us laugh, so he’s been a fun addition to the family. & thank-you, it was delicious!
Congratulations! you have such a beutiful family.. God bless you!
Your family is wonderful. Love the new hair style.
Beautiful family photos, and your hair looks great, love the cut.
Thanks a bunch! 🙂
Love your cute happy family, Cara! And all the touches of spring – my favorite season!
Aw thank-you! Mine too!
Looks like life has been pretty great lately 🙂
It has, thanks! 🙂
OHHH MY GOSHHHH… your fur baby. I want! SO fuzzy!
Men just seem to have that same attitude about pictures, but I always try to remind my clients that the people who love them – their spouse, their children, their siblings – they WANT to have those memories of time captured of them.So do it for others. It makes a world of difference. Glad he’s going to do the session with you.
& I love your hair. Looks so perfect for the spring season.
That’s a great point! Fingers crossed he doesn’t whine too much about it 😉 lol. & thank-you!
Happy Monday beautiful girl! I loved catching up with you via your wonderful spring time pictures! You all are so adorable and I’m glad you had a lovely Easter!
Thank-you Andrea! Hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend as well!
