5. We are big Warriors fans and are hoping that the Jazz can make it past the first round so they can play the Warriors next. We would love to go to a Warriors playoff game in Salt Lake City!

6. Add these to your weekend agenda.

1. We had a lovely Easter weekend with the boys. We dyed eggs, hunted eggs, ate eggs, and made a special dinner. Oh, and I shared this photo on Instagram stories and got a million questions about my dress. It is from StitchFix. I love it, it is so comfortable!
