Fashion over 50 and Easter!

I hope you all had a great weekend and Easter!  We sure did! What a great time with family we had together and we celebrated with both our families on Easter Sunday.  Plus, we had the most gorgeous spring weather, which was welcomed after lots of rain and chilly weather so far this spring.





Today, I don’t have a whole fashion post, but I thought I’d share these coral velvet pants I paired with the Soft Surroundings top I shared last week.  I did wear that outfit to church on Sunday with the pretty blush heels and white pants, but after church I changed into the coral pants and flat shoes for lunch with my parents.  That’s my sister’s dog, Bailey. Their azaleas are in full bloom right now and are so pretty. Ignore the fact that my dad’s detatched garage is in dire need of painting. Here are those items again in case you want to take a peek (affiliate links):

Lauren wasn’t able to come home this week, but she sent of lots of pics of the girls during spring break and Easter.  Get ready to smile!

Trying to get them to pose and look cute, that sisterly love came out. Haha!

Then, sweet and adorable came through for the final pic. How cute are Iris and Parker?

On Easter Sunday, in their Easter dresses for church and brunch with the family down in New Orleans.

Parker was 4 in February and Iris is about to turn 2 this month. My sister and I are headed down there in just a couple of weeks for a long weekend visit and can’t wait for that.

Little girls are the cutest!

One day they will look back on these Easter pics and smile at their childhood.

The whole family, they look so cute all dressed in Easter clothes!

Meanwhile, back at mom and dad’s house, we had a wonderful lunch of ham and several sides. I didn’t take pics of all of that, but it was delicious.  Then, mom served her tasty coconut cake which is a fave for all of us.

We went outside and enjoyed a few minutes in the backyard with all of us and my sister’s dog, Bailey, who was running around like a crazy boy.

He jumped up in Dad’s lap and tried to give him kisses. Dad is doing well and is ready to get in his garden and plant some things so I’ll keep you updated on that this year. We are so thankful he’s feeling so much better and getting much of his strength back from last year’s illness. Mark and I left mom and dad’s and went back to our house where his family joined us for lunch on our backyard patio.  I got the patio all cleaned up last week and had it ready for entertaining. The pollen is still coming down, so I’m keeping it all covered with a big tarp for that and any rain we get.  But we are really excited to start using the patio this year and enjoying the backyard.

All of Mark’s 4 daughters were there along with the 2 new babies.  That’s Mark’s dad holding the newest little boy and Rose is under the blanket there. She’s getting so big!  That’s Traci, with Rose and Kelli (in the coral) is Baby H’s mom.  So this is 4 generations sitting here on this couch. It was nice having Mark’s family over for the afternoon and the weather was just perfect. I love that he has a close family, just like I do.

Mark hid some Easter eggs for his 2 grandsons in the backyard and they loved that.  

Me and Rose, isn’t she adorable?!  She’s the sweetest, smiliest little thing and we love having these babies around.  I’m enjoying all of this extended family! I thought y’all would enjoy seeing a bit of our Easter this year, it was such a fun and blessed day.  We treasure our families and want to spend as much time as we can with all of them.  Hope your day was wonderful as well!
