Happy Easter!

If anyone knows my mom, they know that she has a thing about celebrating holidays on the wrong days. Not because she gets the dates mixed up, but because she likes to avoid the pressure of making sure she gets everything on time. But the funny thing is, we usually celebrate a week early. Like with Easter. This was partially because we won't have Isabelle this weekend, but that's besides the point.

Oh, and my mom and I are trying to eat a lot better lately too, so instead of the traditional candy filled Easter baskets, she filled it with different things we've been looking at lately, and will be more useful! Clever, right? :)

Yellow -- Mine | Pink -- Chelsey's | Green -- Isabelle's

I was so beyond excited! The past few times we've gone to Target, I've seen these awesome box-y wall shelf things (the big boxes next to my basket) but I've been trying to save money so I've resisted buying them (much harder done than said!) but my mom surprised me with them! Same with the cardigans too :) Probably one of my favorite things though? The Something Borrowed book! I saw a trailer for the movie the other day, and it turns out she has like four other books! So my mom got me those saying I can finish this one soon, but still have the rest of Emily Giffin's books for this summer when I go to Cape Cod!

Anyways, enough about what I got.. We went out to Chad's (my mom's boyfriend) parents place on Saturday for a little Easter egg hunt for Isabelle! It was so much fun to watch her search all around for the eggs!

These are just a few of the million pictures I took that day -- but as you can see, I tried to capture as much of the day as possible! It was really a lot of fun to watch her get so excited over the little plastic eggs and the cool things inside of them. It reminded me of when I was little and would go out with my sister and cousins on a huge Easter egg hunt!

What do you usually do for Easter?
Do you celebrate early like my mom does?

  2. Those photos of isabelle are so sweet! I wish I still did egg hunts! Healthy easter is such a good idea.. although I am actually eating an easter bunny right now haha
    Anyway, I hope you have a lovely second easter!


  3. For easter I think of Jesus, but I really don't know if he thinks of me.

  4. Addie - Thank you! It really was a lot of fun :)

    Hannah - She really is such a sweet little girl! It made me happy to see her get that excited over egg hunts (I wonder why there aren't more big kid ones?!) And Easter candy is the best! (Just like red hair! :) hahah

    S - I can guarantee that he thinks of you, too! When I was little I used to always think of how he would be up in heaven and listen to a million people at once. So crazy, but super cool!

    I hope you all have a fantastic Easter!
