I had just the best Easter this year! I guess when it’s 74 degrees and sunny in Oregon it’s hard to not have such a great day… I had been needing some Vitamin D in my life. :)
My Easter festivities started on Saturday night with these 2 ladies…
Every year growing up it was a tradition to get together the night before Easter with my BFF and cousin, Jessie. We have so many great memories from these nights including epic secret handshake creations, lots of delicious treat making, and tons of laughs of course. This year was no different.
A few weeks ago I found this recipe and had to try it! It’s chocolate cake batter brownies with melted Peeps on top and Easter sprinkles. You guys, these are no joke. They are SO delicious! I don’t even like Peeps and these won me over.
Then, of course, we did our nails like little Easter eggs…with little bunnies on our ring fingers. We are all about the holidays…(if you didn’t know already.)
On Easter morning the hubs and I tried out a new church in town, and we loved it! I am really hoping we can start going here and get plugged in. I’ve never had “my own” church before… (long story for another post) but I am ready to settle into one with my husband, soon! :)
After church we went home and had a little photoshoot, naturally…
(*sidenote* I’ve been meaning to write a post about my painted chevron wall…but it’s not quite finished yet. Soon! Promise!)
Then we scurried over to my parents’ house where my huge family celebrated outside. We enjoyed lots of delicious food and enjoyed each others’ company all day long.
This year Jessie and I were in charge of the kids’ egg hunt. We had a lot of fun hiding them all over the yard…trying to find challenging places for the bigger kids. Next year we will have 2 more little hunters in our family, can’t wait! :)
Overall I felt seriously blessed all day long. Not only for my amazing family and the time I got to spend with them…but for the awesome gift that God gave us—Jesus died for all our sins and for that I am forever grateful! I loved starting the day with church and hearing the message. I was able to just reflect on that all day and realize how lucky we all are being able to live without shame or guilt because of Jesus. Seriously blessed. :)
How was your Easter?
