I literally cannot believe the Easter Weekend is here, not to mention, the last weekend in March. Crazy. This week has been another yo yo weather week and yo yo brain functioning for me, lol. We saw a son get awards at his last ever High School Sports banquet, booked a weekend in Chicago in July, husband and I talked whether or not to buy Moscow Mule Mugs (so random), consumed a Cadbury Creme egg and I found my coveted orange fluff recipe to make and take to moms Easter dinner and fixed my orange hair after a brassy self color job. 
Today I'm off to shop for a Birthday outfit for next Saturday and any other Spring goodness that catches my eye. 

1. Easter Cocktail


Lemon wedge
Colored Sugar
1½ oz. Cherry Vodka
½ oz. Triple Sec
3 oz. Half and Half
Dash of Grenadine
1 Marshmallow PEEPS®

Rim a martini glass with the lemon wedge and then dip the rim into colored sugar. Set aside.

To a shaker filled with ice, add the cherry vodka, triple sec, half and half and grenadine until chilled. Strain into prepared glass. Garnish with the Marshmallow PEEPS®. Serve immediately.

2. Fannie May
Fannie May Vanilla Buttercream's are my all time favorite candy....ever!! The ones in the egg shapes for Easter are especially tasty because the ratio of cream to chocolate is even grander!! 

3. Easter Dress
I'll be way more casual this year, but last year I was already in floral mode and this is what I wore to an Italian Easter Dinner in Grand Cayman.
Post on this dress along with a Funny Zipper story HERE

4. Bunny Pancakes
Wow your family Easter morning with these easy Bunny Pancakes

5. Random Sweetness
Easter Cards to Grandma
My 93yr. old Grandma is in a nursing home down south so we don't get to celebrate many holidays with her. I love Sending Cards so you can bet I was super excited to find an Easter one with a Hummingbird (Her Favorite) on it to send her.

 Pom Puff Bag Charm Buy Here
I just got this bag charm from Shopbop and the colors of this just make me think Easter Eggs so I think I'll put this on my bag for Easter

This CUTE meme I saw on my friend Katie's Blog Preppy Empty Nester
Cadbury Creme eggs are the bomb. I limit myself to only a couple each year, but boy are they tasty. I've loved them for as long as I can remember. 

Happy Easter Weekend Pretties!!
After you've eaten your ham and hunted for eggs, make sure to stop back Sunday afternoon for a Special post of mine called
