Easter Day 2016

I hope you all had a nice Easter! I’m working on my table settings, so I’ve been buying a little bit here and a little bit there. I purchased the bunny plates, chargers, faux grass runner and napkins at Pier 1. I love the plates. They’re so cute! And if you couldn’t tell… I tried to make the napkins resemble carrots.

I would have prefered fresh flowers as a centerpiece, but it wasn’t happening this year.

After dinner we decided to go for a walk in the park.

It was a nice walk. We ate early enough to go 6 miles round-trip. We didn’t plan on walking that far… We just didn’t realize how far the trail went. It’s a good thing that we decided to turn around when we did. The trail continued on a good 20 miles or so more. Next time, we’ll pay more attention.

Easter Home Tour 2016

I’m all set for the Easter Bunny! Growing up, Easter was never a big to-do in my family. While I’ve decorated in the past, this is the first year that I’ve really put an effort into it. I love the magic and the whimsy… Enjoy the little tour!

St. Patrick’s Day 2016

Hello, Friends! Coming on to share a quick peek at our St. Patrick’s Day. I didn’t really decorate… I couldn’t find the box of decorations in storage. Can you believe it? The mess has moved from the house to the storage unit. Sigh… I told my husband that we need a bigger storage unit. I almost have him convinced. I’m crossing my fingers.

I managed to throw something together for the dinner table.

Rainbow cupcakes

For the centerpiece, I used these cute rainbow cupcakes that I baked.

The only issue I had with the cupcakes, was the rainbows. I didn’t cut them small enough, so many of them sagged. Live and learn. The recipe called for cutting the candy pieces in half. Well… I probably should have cut them in thirds. I could have made them fancier, but I don’t have the right tips for the icing bag. Something else to add to my list.

And of course, Corned Beef and Cabbage was on the menu. I cooked everything in the crock pot, and it got a little mushy. But it tasted great!

Wherever you go and whatever you do, may the luck of the Irish be there with you!
