And at this point made the executive decision to cut down on all the things I was going to make. First to go was my Triple Lemon Blueberry cake. If you read my post on Friday you will know this is something that I have attempted to make multiple times but have yet to actually make it. Big plans to make it next Wednesday for my Aunt's birthday. Considering I am in charge of the cake I hope to actually make it this time! Haha!
Saturday we went out to lunch and walked around downtown at an arts and crafts show. It started off rainy but ended up being beautiful. When we got home it was still so nice out we went for another walk!
And we even got to sneak in a date night sans baby Saturday night. We had an amazing meal and I can't wait to try and recreate some of the appetizers and entrees we had. And I had a great Sauvignon blanc called Hunky Dory out of New Zealand
Easter morning I attempted to make the "healthy chocolates" I mentioned in my post from last friday. I made coconut balls dipped in chocolate (mounds bar), peanut butter eggs (Reese's Pieces) and last minute decided to make yogurt dipped pretzels. And the verdict on all 3 recipes.... is Pinterest FAIL!!! Ugh these do not compete whatsoever with my other recipes that call for a pound of confectionery sugar.
bunny cinnabon rolls from my to do list.
Well, I had quite the busy morning on Sunday as you can see. By the time everyone was up we were ready to open our baskets! A loved hers (details here) and Armondo are cat LOVED his even more. Armondo would dive into his basket and take out the toys!
I swear A is happy and having fun!!
Once we opened baskets it was time for A's morning nap! She actually had two before we went to lunch at my Aunt's house. While she was napping I attempted to do the last two things on my list and then decided that I need a cup of coffee and to rest. I was way too sleepy! At my Aunt's house A got to participate in her first egg hunt. Next year we are going to be more competition. This year we were trying to take some pictures and missed some valuable egg searching time. We ended up getting 5 eggs!! WOO HOO!!
Hope you had a great Easter/Passover! Would love to hear if you any Pinterest wins or fails this past weekend!
