Hello friends! I spent some time today working on Madeline's Easter basket. Needless to say, it was a bit more challenging this year than past years. I tend to order things, but with many of the Prime dates being extended, it took a little more searching. Between Target drive up, several items arriving on time via Prime and Walmart two day deliver, I not only was able to get Madeline's goodies together but also round up a handful of great Easter basket ideas for kids of all ages. If you're still looking for some ideas, I hope this post is helpful. From what I'm seeing right now, these items should be available for pick up or arrive in time. And if they won't, maybe this roundup will give you some ideas for similar findings :)

Thanks for stopping by, friends! Have a great Monday.

My Dear Madeline,

          How is it possible that my baby girl turns FIVE today?! I will never forget five years ago today, the excitement I felt meeting you for the first time. I knew I'd love you with all my heart, but I never could have ever imagined just how much I would love you. And that love has grown more and more each day.  I will never forget that feeling of holding you in my arms for the very first time. And now, I still get that same excitement each time I hold you and dance with you. Raising you has been the biggest privilege of my life, and I thank the Lord each and every day for making me your mama. I love to think on Psalm 118:30: As for God, His way is perfect. God knew what he was doing when He sent you to me, you saved me! Although I'm teaching you, you are actually teaching me and have taught me some of the greatest life lessons. I will never forget the day I found out you were a girl. I was so excited and could only imagine the fun we would have. Well that fun has proven to be more than I ever could imagine! Not only knowing you're my precious daughter but also realizing you're without a doubt my very best friend. I love every second I have with you and all the fun we have. I'm learning every single day how important it is to cherish our times because it goes by all too quickly. Time certainly does fly when you're having fun. You are my whole world and everything in it. You've stollen your Mama's heart forever. I simply cannot imagine life without you. I pray that you will never loose that magical twinkle in your eye. You are so smart, energetic, and your smile and laughter are contagious. I adore your imagination and love getting lost in it with you. I love dancing together to all the Disney songs and singing every song on the Frozen II soundtrack until we're out of songs to sing. I pray that you will never forget how to slow down and take in each moment as you remind me to every day. I hope you never stop believing in fairy magic, unicorns and mermaids. Your sweet, gentle spirit towards your puppy sister and all animals touches my heart. Your fascination for all sea life, sharks and taking care of those who need help demonstrates the tenderness in your heart. Never forget that hard work, determination and trusting all your plans with Jesus will take you just where you are to go. Never stop chasing your dreams of becoming a marine biologist and working for the Georgia Aquarium one day. Never loose that precious "childlike faith" that the Lord longs for us to have. Your sweet prayers are such a demonstration of just that, and especially when you realize a prayer has been answered and remember to credit it all to God. Most importantly, never forget just how much I love you and how Jesus loves you even more than that! Always cling to Psalm 27:1. I pray that no matter where life takes you, you will never forget to be kind, show love and be a light for the Lord. I just adore every single ounce of you and am so very honored to be your Mama. I love you more than words could ever tell. 

Love,
Mama

Spring Finds With Walmart

Hello friends! I'm so excited to be sharing a huge roundup + try-on of some amazing pieces I've recently purchased from Walmart. I am once again so very pleased with all of my Walmart fashion finds. There truly is a great selection for the whole family including all the latest trends: tie dye, animal print and much more. I always get excited to know that there is a great variety of pieces that are so very reasonably priced, yet the quality is outstanding! I can't wait to share the pieces I purchased for both myself and Madeline. My personal favorite just may be the "Soft Overalls" (y'all, I'm obsessed!), and I also found three amazing swimsuits. As far as quality and fit goes, they're honestly just as good, if not better, than ones I've paid $100+ for. Let's get started, shall we?! :)

Soft Overalls in light wash layered with the Flutter Sleeve Crewneck Sweater

Spring Finds With Walmart - Something Delightful Blog #WalmartFashion #SpringFashion #AffordableFashion #TieDye #Overalls #Chambray

These soft overalls are just that...so. very. soft. They're perfect for spring in summer. Unlike your regular overalls (that can quite often be stiff and uncomfortable), these are soft, a relaxed fit, breathable and just so stinkin' cute! I purchased them in two washes. I also love that you can adjust and cinch in the waist, along with the adjustable straps. They fit me perfectly, wearing them cuffed or un-cuffed. They're TTS, I'm 5'2 and wearing the XS, for reference. 

Soft Overalls in Green Amber layered with the Flutter Sleeve Crewneck Sweater

Spring Finds With Walmart - Something Delightful Blog #WalmartFashion #SpringFashion #AffordableFashion #TieDye #Overalls #Chambray

Here are the same soft overalls in "Green Amber", the perfect olive green! This is one of my favorite colors to wear, because it's perfect for all year. You can enjoy them now and then also transition them later on from summer to fall. These come in five colors!

This flutter sleeve sweater is the same piece I have layered with the Soft Overalls above. I first off want to mention that it does not feel like the thickness of a sweater at all! I would consider it to be more of a crochet detail white top, and it's gorgeous! The sleeves fall so effortlessly and are the perfect feminine touch. I'm wearing it in the size XS.


Denim Jackets: Pink & Tie Dye

Spring Finds With Walmart - Something Delightful Blog #WalmartFashion #SpringFashion #AffordableFashion #TieDye #Overalls #Chambray

When it comes to denim jackets, I'm pretty much a denim jacket junkie haha. I have quite the collection and enjoy them all year! I was so excited to get my hands on this darling pink and oh-so affordable one. Y'all, it's only $19! I have it in the size small. It also comes in a dark wash, light wash and white. I picked up this tie dye denim jacket from Walmart as well, and it's amazing! It has the perfect amount of distressing, a frayed details on the sleeves and looks so cute paired with an all white look. I have the x-small in this one, for reference.They both run TTS.

I can't get over how good this midi dress is! Blue and white stripes are always a favorite of mine. This one runs TTS as well, and I have it in the XS, for reference. Again, the quality is amazing, and it feels like it could be a much higher price point. This one comes in four different print options. 


Spring Finds With Walmart - Something Delightful Blog #WalmartFashion #SpringFashion #AffordableFashion #TieDye #Overalls #Chambray

This one had me at eyelet! Y'all this is the sweetest eyelet midi dress and again, I couldn't believe the price. It comes in seven colors, including lavender, hot pink, red and more. I have it on in the size small.

Swimsuits: Leopard, Solid Blue, Floral

Spring Finds With Walmart - Something Delightful Blog #WalmartFashion #SpringFashion #AffordableFashion #TieDye #Overalls #Chambray

Y'all I feel like I hit the jackpot on these swimsuits. Finding three suits that are full coverage, all fit like a glove, are amazing quality (seriously are better than ones I've paid $100+ for) and receive a cuteness level of 10, I'd say that's a huge win. This leopard print high waist bikini is just under $20!!! I couldn't believe it. It has the cutest ruffle details on the straps and also on the bottoms, that asymmetrically go across the front and travel around to the back. It's adorable! I have it in the size small. Next up, this sky blue twist-front swimsuit is gorgeous! It has the perfect amount of cut out without it being too much. I love the color especially. Last but certainly not least, this peplum style floral print swimsuit is again precious. I love the color combination, and it has the cutest peplum details that start on the sizes and carry around to the back. It's currently on sale for $15! I purchased a size small in all three.

I also picked up a few spring/summer accessories from Walmart. I always love their shoe selection! How precious are these ruffle detail wedges?! Y'all I'm obsessed! They come in three colors: blush, red and black. They run TTS and have a cushioned foot bed. I also purchased these brown wedge sandals that have been a go-to since they arrived. They're the perfect cognac that will go with everything! I love them paired with pieces like the soft overalls I featured above, along with shorts and dresses. They're the perfect casual shoe with a little heel. They also run TTS. They're only $19 and also come in animal print. I had to purchase this precious straw bucket bag! I absolutely love the natural straw details with the combination of the white and cognac leather. It has an adjustable strap, can be carried over your shoulder or cross body and has a drawstring closure! It's amazing and only $32.

I also picked up some of the cutest Walmart fashion pieces for Madeline! The jumpsuits featured above are the prefect pieces for some mommy and me twinning with the soft overalls I featured at the beginning of the post :) I also got her the sweet olive green top + candy striped culottes set. It's precious! I loved that the stripe denim skirt alls come with the white flutter sleeve top, and I couldn't resist those precious pink quartz shortalls. The chambray tie-front top and eyelet flutter sleeve tees are the perfect pieces for layering, pairing and playing! And can we just talk about the mermaid swimsuits!!

Well that's about it for all of my Walmart finds! I hope y'all enjoyed this post. I will be sharing a try-on of these pieces over on my IG stories as well. I hope y'all have a wonderful day! Thank you for stopping by :)
