Interesting Easter


We celebrated Easter Thursday (my hubby works weekends) and it was a bit interesting. I know my friends imagine Easter at my house is like Martha's. Beautiful tablescape, interesting, yummy meal, picture perfect event. Well this year, not !!!!!!! I have been battling some health issue (nothing serious) but I am stressed and tired. I was just not up to an elaborate day. We had a simple breakfast and the Easter bunny came. I have to say the Easter bunny gets teenage girls the most interesting things, like skull patches, buttons and fabric, Lord of the Rings and medieval jewelry, Star wars figures, princess crowns. glittery roving and of course yummy chocolates. I think the Easter bunny had fun shopping for the teen girls :-) Then David took us to dinner at a wonderful restaurant that is in an old Victorian on the water. The restaurant is covered in hats. We had so much fun trying on different hats, as you can see. It was not the Easter I usually do, not the Easter in my Martha dream but still lovely. I have to say the grilled salmon on pumpkin raviolis with garlic kale and roasted tomatoes was pretty worth it xoxoxoxo

That sounds like a perfect Easter to me. This was the first time in 30 years that we had Easter dinner at home..just the 4 of us. It was wonderful. Sometimes you just have to do things your way. I hope that you will be feeling a little more up to par very soon. The girls are need to see what my teens did with their eggs. Very silly. Susan


I have a feeling that picture could come back to haunt Chloe in later years ;)

Hey, I've seen Martha get silly- I think she'd approve! Sounds like it was a blast.
