What I'm Loving Wednesday

Today I'm doing something a little different from the usual Wednesday picture post and linking up with Jamie over at "this kind of love" for "What I'm loving Wednesday."
What I'm loving:

for Addie:  I finished my easter basket shopping up and I am absolutely loving everything I got to fill it.  In addition to the adorable things I mentioned in my post on Saturday, I also picked up these cute things:
Melissa & Doug Linking Crab

pink and white leg warmers from Target

Addie's first pool for the summer
I am so excited about this Sunday and spending our first Easter together as a family.  I'll be back next week with all of the pictures - Addie has really bad reflux and usually goes through about 3 outfits a day so we have several Easter ensembles ready to go!

for Momma:

Ann Taylor and Ann Talyor Loft are currently offereing 40% off everything!!  I love these stores and I LOVE a debit card is nervous right now....

I also came across these during my Easter basket shopping that just seem to make great sense - I'm loving the idea of them -they come in all different colors - and I'mtotally thinking about picking out one or two just to give them a try.  They are jewelry for moms that are totally teethable.  Yes, a big teething ring around your neck or wrist that looks like jewelry!

for my home:
I was at Target about 2 weeks ago and I spotted this outdoor table cloth and loved the almost "Tiffany blue" color.  I knew it would be perfect for summer cook-outs and the fabric felt great.  Even more to love - it was only $9.99.  I have already used it and washed it and it held up great.  I highly recommend looking at Target's outdoor table cloths if you're in the market!  You will also spot in that picture a glass beverage dispenser that I have been wanting for the longest time and finally bought on that same Target shopping trip.  The hubs and I love to entertain and this just does a great job of dressing up any drink you're serving and with summer upon us - I had to have it.  We've tried it once and it was great - all for only $20.79 at Target:)  Sangria, anyone?

from my garden:
I posted yesterday about harvesting my collard greens but wanted to mention today that the lettuce I just planted a few weeks ago is sprouting up and looking wonderful.  I love lettuce fresh out of the garden, it really does taste different from the store bought and this year I'm growing romaine and buttercrunch.  By next week, I am definitely thinking these will be ready for picking (and by that I mean, just grabbing the lettuce you need for your dinner salad - not harvesting the whole plant - these things are the gifts that keep on giving:))

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday - whats not to love about being half way through the week!

that drink looks tastey!

My sister made the cutest Easter basket for my little one for her very first easter. I had not a clue what to put in it and she presented her with a pink and white felt basket with plastic eggs, rubber duckie in lambs clothing, a lovely little book and a few other goodies all perfect for a 7 month old.

Your little is sure to LOVE her basket.
