I hope this week is finding everyone well! We have officially ended Spring break in our household and we are ready to get back into a routine.
We had a family fun filled Easter that included too much candy, ham, banana pudding and all the other yumminess that comes with Easter. It was so nice to have a week off going to the park, eating lunch on the deck and just taking it easy!
As I do every year, I waited for Target’s Easter merchandise to be marked down to 90% off. For many years, this is the way I buy for the following Easter (excluding candy). Many times Target will even have other seasonal merchandise marked down to 90% as well.
Girl Bows– Was: $4.99 Paid: .49 cents
Easter Infant PJs– Was: $9.99 Paid: .99 cents
Hat– Was: $3.00 Paid: .30 cents
Decorative Eggs– Was: $5.00 Paid: .50 cents
Character Baskets– Was: $10.00-$15.00 Paid $1.00-$1.50
Easter is a fun holiday around our house. Easter is filled with home cooked food, family and festive fun! It is almost like a “Spring Thanksgiving”. Easter is not Easter without a delicious ham, rolls, deviled eggs and yummy desserts. I am getting hungry just typing this! I get the pleasure to host Easter this year for our family so I wanted to share with you some of the yummy foods that we will be having and some extras ;). I will be making the traditional ham, but I am going to try this new crock pot recipe that I posted below.
Last year my daughter had the best time helping make the Easter Bark recipe below. And by help I mean eating all the sprinkles, M&Ms and Oreos! It is such a fun and easy recipe for the kiddos to take part in.
If you follow me, you know that no holiday morning is complete without festive pancakes at our house. How cute is this bunny butt pancake?!?
Okay, on to the deliciousness that is Easter food. Like I said above, I will be making crockpot ham (below), my potato salad recipe (I should share!), Easter fluff (below), Peeps cake (below), rolls & a carrot cheese ball (below). So excited to try some of these new recipes!
I L-O-V-E Spring! I am officially done with Winter as soon as the holidays are over and Easter is such an exciting time of the year. Everything feels fresh, colorful and joyful. It probably has something to do with all the beautiful flowers that start to bloom. This year I have been trying to add some Easter decorations to our house, but I haven’t been able to find anything that I love. Of course, my next step was Pinterest. I am really feeling the canvas bunny and mason jars to add some pops of color and Easter-ness (my own word) to our house. Enjoy!
