blame it on Easter

Well, I went ahead and talked about Easter yesterday so now my brain only wants to think about all things Easter. So here's the most random 5's I can think of, that all have one thing in common... Easter!

Easter baby! Last year we spent Easter with our Brinkerhoff family and had the BEST weekend! Mia was such a little pro at finding the Easter eggs! Gosh, I love me a good #flashbackfriday! These memories and those shades are totally doin' it for me right now, ha ha!

Easter candy! Tell me I'm not alone when I think that Easter candy is the BEST candy?! Gimme all the jellybeans, cadbury eggs and stale peeps! Speaking of stale peeps... remember when the Huffington Post referred to my blog? Probably the lamest thing ever to be recognized for on HuffPost, but still a lot of fun to talk about :) ha ha.

Easter colors! I love all things springy, pastel and pretty! Easter time is the perfect excuse to wear all things pastel and girly! I'm livin' it up as much as possible through my wardrobe (when I actually get ready, lets be real here) and Mia's!

Easter plans! I was feeling a little bummed to be far from family for Easter celebration but I was determined to make it a special holiday for the 3 of us at home. Well thanks to family and friends who live on the opposite side of the valley from us, we now have the FUNNEST plans and I am looking forward to playing hard all Easter weekend long! But I'm taking Mia to her first egg hunt of the year in our little community tomorrow! Hopefully the kids don't kill each other trying to get to the eggs, ha ha!

Easter bunny and photo bombs :) Happy (flash back) Friday, my friends!!

Loving all the Easter fun, lady!!! SO awesome!!!

Glad you made fun Easter plans, it's such a great holiday to celebrate with family. I can't imagine not doing church and a family or FRIEND brunch/dinner. Easter isn't the same without that moment, right?!?

I remember that referral from Huffington, too cute! <3 you

Ahhh the Easter bunny photo! Too darn cute!!!
Yes, Easter candy is some of the best candy. Definitely not good to have a dentist appointment soon after Easter lol
Have a great weekend!

#mommylife said...

ohh you know what.. you just helped me get out of my rut.. I was so irritated that both sides of our families don't have anything planned this year.. so I will just take her to events myself and make the best of it! She will have a blast and we'll just pretty much celebrate Easter on Saturday! These pics are adorable btw!

Yay for Easter fun! I love all the Easter colors too and am so ready to get out of this drab winter wardrobe. Enjoy your Easter egg hunt with little miss!

I have been living it up in pastels since the daylight savings time change. I love fashion this time of the year! Also, I totally laughed out loud at your FBF picture!!

Easter is the best! Not only do we get to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus we get to have so many wonderful things accompany that. I mean, Starburst jelly beans? YES PLEASE! And the Easter egg hunts and the brunch food after Easter service?! It's all just the best!

That photo bomb! I'm DYING! I literally laughed out loud. Too cute.
Oh and girl, I am with you on Easter candy! I don't know what it is but I much prefer Easter candy over Valentine's or any other holiday. Bring it on!
Hope you have the best weekend! Can't wait to hear about the easter egg hunt from today!

Oh my gosh! That photobomb is classic! So cute!!

Annette said...

I wish it felt more like Easter in Connecticut, but if you look outside, it feels more like Christmas... I love Easter--the candy, the pastel colors, the flowers, birds, little chicks, bunnies, and butterflies. I'm glad you're finding some fun things to do in your community too. It sounds like your family is going to have a great holiday in your new home!

Sara Elizabeth said...

Starburst jellybeans are my Easter crack... Can't wait see Mia rock another egg hunt!!!

Laura Marie Keenan said...

Ha, how funny about the Huffington Post! You made it in the big leagues...even if it was for something a bit ridiculous! I officially got my first nasty comment on my blog this week, and of all the slightly controversial things I may talk about (especially with regards to my parenting style), some women was distraught over my construction site post. Anyhoo, I feel like I really "made it" now that I have a troll/hater commenting, ha! ;-)

Erin LFF said...

I'm so glad you guys have fun Easter plans now! Ours change every year but at least we see family in some form :) And you know Easter candy is my weakness... ACK!

Karina Marie Powell said...

That last picture melts my heart! I remember that clear as day from last year! Ah! I LOVE Easter. One of the best times of the year! XO

Brittany said...

Oh my gosh - sweet little Mia!!! That old picture melts my heart! Also, the kid photobombing is pretty classic, too.

Lisa Loves John said...

Girlfriend, you are NOT alone... Easter candy is most definitely the bestttt kind of candy :) :)
