Easter Recap Weekend

It was just the three of this year for Easter and for it being our first family Easter it was pretty special. Easter is one of my favorite holidays particualarly because it reminds me so much of my happy childhood days. We always spent Easter at my grandparents house and my grandma would have a bunny cake and we would have an egg hunt in their yard so I can't wait to start family Easter traditions with Elle like I had when I was little.
We spent Easter this year by attending the 7 am mass {Elle didn't cry}, we then made brunch at home with mimosas, carrot cake muffins, scrambled eggs, fruit, string cheese and candy! I might add I gave up string cheese and candy for lent. I gave up string cheese because I eat string cheese like no ones business. When I was pregnant I would eat string cheese at all hours of the night and sometimes my husband would even find the wrapper in our bed! Oops. But I made it all 40 days and oh my goodness was I a happy camper to see a package of string cheese in the fridge this morning. We then spent the day playing with some of Elle's new toys and enjoyed the beautiful evening by going on a walk.
good thing we left Mr. Bunny some carrots as look at the treats he brought us!




What are all of your family Easter traditions?

Friday's Party: Easter Guest Dessert Table

Easter is a favorite holiday of mine and so its only fitting that I feature an Easter party today!
This shabby chic Easter Table is simply adorable. I love the soft color scheme, the use of vintage cake stands, and who can possibly resist those bunny cupcakes?

Silhouette Easter Egg Design





I love the look of silhouette's. Perhaps, why I enjoy the look of silhouette's is because it reminds me of an art project I made for my mom during my elementary years. Or maybe because its such a beautiful way to capture the little munchkins. Either way, I find silhouette's to be a classic look and now for the Easter holiday what better way to embrace the silhouette look than on Easter eggs. To see more designs and for the tutorial you can click here via Le Papier Studio blog.

What I'm Loving This Week


I heart this Pieces of Me Silhoutte Necklace by Le Papier Studio. Perfect for Mother's Day!


Accent it with a bright pink color and you have a fun look this spring for your bedroom.

PS: Oilo's baby collection of baby bedding is adorable. If we had a boy a bedding set from Oilo was going to be a must!

Vineyard Countryside


Our weekend in Sonoma was a lot of fun. We really enjoyed the smaller family wineries as everyone was so friendly and to take in the scenery of lush green hills and rows and rows of grapes was a treat in itself for this desert girl.

*Make sure you stop back on Friday where I will have pictures from the wedding that we attended in Sonoma. *
