Last Minute Easter Ideas

This post may contain affiliate links.

Ahhhhh! Can you believe that Easter is this Sunday? Man, where have I been? I’m telling you guys that time has just been slipping away from me so fast this past month or two. I’m still dealing with side effects and exhaustion from being so sick last month.

Here’s a couple of ideas from Katie over at Kids Can Cook Real Food that I found interesting:

How Do you Make an Easter Basket Without Junk?

No Mess, No Food Coloring Easter Egg Decorating

I have managed to throw together a quick shopping list for Easter dinner on Sunday and I think I will just try to do one giant Easter basket like I usually do for the kids. Hopefully we will get around to coloring some eggs this weekend too. I’d also love to attend a Sunrise Service but not sure if that will happen or not.

What plans does your family have?

Wishing you all a very blessed weekend!

Valentine’s Day 2018 Roundup

The past couple of weeks have been a bit rough around here. Mr. Awesome was sick and then the internet has been down for a bit. (I’ve been working on this post for a few weeks now but couldn’t post it.) Then my computer died… eek! Thankfully all seems to be better now and I am trying to learn the ins and outs of my new computer.

Valentine’s day is just around the corner so I wanted to share a couple of ideas and deals that I’ve found and some that I have tried out myself. (This post does contain affiliate links.) I’ll update this list if I find any other really good deals too!

Have You Made Your New Year’s Resolutions Yet?

Have You Made Your New Year’s Resolutions Yet? I haven’t, well I have a few things in mind but I haven’t actually sat down and put pen to paper or anything like that. I want to be more organized… some people laugh when I say that as they think I am already really organized… this recent move still has been in a tizzy. I’d also like to lose a little weight like many of us. Most importantly I just want to be a better mother, friend, and person in 2018 than I was in 2017. Hmmm… not too much to ask is it?

New Year’s Meal

Well 2017 is almost at an end which means we need to get ready for the New Year. Many families have a traditional meal that they serve and below is what we normally serve.

New Year’s Meal:

Brown Sugar & Honey Glazed Ham

Black Eyed Peas,

Greens

Hoe Cakes 

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

I’m not really sure what our meal is going to be yet, as we have been starting some new traditions here in the little house on the pond, but I’m sure it will be delicious.

 

Happy New Year’s!
