I hope you all had a great Easter weekend!
Ours was packed with activities, it was perfect.
Trader Joe's has the most incredible flowers right now. Week after week they are filling my house with gorgeous spring flowers.
There is nothing better than fresh flowers in your home!
We celebrated Easter nice and early with a visit from the Easter Bunny, about five Easter egg hunts with the same four plastic eggs (love this age!) and a yummy pumpkin pecan waffle breakfast with cranberry butter and syrup. I will share the recipe soon, I die.
We headed to my parent's home in the afternoon to help cook and get ready for our traditional feast.
(you may recognize Presley's "Easter dress" from our Christmas card ... Easter really snuck up on me this year!)
My mom is the. best. host. Seriously, every holiday is always so fun in her home. She makes the most incredible food and always has a beautiful holiday spread.
( And do you die over her new chandelier?? )
She went with a lilac theme, and it was gorgeous! She bought most of her flowers and what nots at Rogers Gardens. I am now also a huge fan of them, they have the best holiday decor!
She even sent us home with our own Easter decoration.
I baked my very favorite coconut cake. My mom had a traditional ham, but lucky for me - I don't do ham - she has been making her hazelnut crusted chicken with creamy thyme sauce too for the past few years. It is insane! And such a great take on Easter dinner. Again, I promise to start sharing some recipes. We enjoyed celebrating with both sides of our family this year!
I love Easter and what it represents to us in our faith. Hope you all had a great weekend too!
