Happy Spring // Easter Ideas

Hello hello! 

We are FINALLY back from our trip, and I am so happy to be home. We were supposed to get home Monday night, but because United Airlines is awful due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to spend the night in Denver and didn't get home until late last night. Not the best way to end our vacation, but oh well. I'll be sharing all the photos from our trip ASAP! 

But since today is the first day of spring (although you wouldn't know it because it's currently BLIZZARDING at our house right now!) I thought I'd share some of my favorite Pinterest finds for Easter! Easter is super early this year, which I personally do not like at all. For one, it will be way too cold to wear anything cute/springy and two, I feel like we just got through St. Patrick's Day! (I actually shared some of my favorite Pinterest ideas for Patty's Day just last week, in case you missed it) Nonetheless, Easter is definitely one of my favorite holidays--celebrating the joy of Christ's resurrection with flowers, pastel colors, and candy--what's not to love? Here are a few fun Easter ideas that I've pinned recently...

Holy Week is fast approaching.  This is a beautiful verse to memorize for this season.
coconut macaroon nutella nests - Made these using cadbury eggs! YUM and Oh, so CUTE! Except I only used one cadbury egg and and made MUCH smaller cookies than recommended! I don't know who could eat a cookie as large as they had put in the instructions!

As far as Easter candy goes, Cadbury Creme Eggs are hands down my favorite (closely followed by Peeps, Easter M&Ms, and jelly beans...like I said, I love this holiday). Let's just say it's a good thing they only sell them once a year because I have no willpower when it comes to Cadbury Eggs! My other favorite Easter candy is the Cadbury Mini Eggs, you know, the little chocolate eggs with the crunchy pastel shell--so so good! Basically I love anything Cadbury this time of year (except the Carmel Eggs, gross) and I've pinned some recipes recently using both the Creme Eggs and the Mini Eggs that I think would be so much fun to try out for an Easter celebration!

It's hard to believe that Easter Sunday is in only a week and a half! We're actually going to be heading to Oregon to spend it with Cam's family and I'm already looking forward to that little weekend getaway! Xoxo
