{valentine’s day melt away cookies}

Soft buttery cookie with an extra sweet icing.

Made these with Bay over the weekend and I know why they are referred to as “melt away”

They legit melt away AKA disappear.

{bunny ear cake}

Easter Sunday is this weekend. More importantly, Good Friday! Ha! I can FINALLY drink booze again! So watch out, mama’s getting buzzed. With a couple little hiccups in the last 46 days. Keep’n it real, the struggle is real.

Since I have so much extra time on my hands, I made the sweetest Easter cake for dessert last weekend. We had my 95 year old grandmother + her caregiver, Eda and my parents over for dinner after Palm Sunday service. And I served this sweet cake.

It’s semi-homemade. Semi-naked. Bunny ear cake!

{easter basket goodies}

Easter is next weekend peeps and I figured you might be interested in celebrating with a few extra goodies for the kiddos. Naturally, I put together a list of goodies xoxostacyb approved. Lots of cute little treats to perfect your children’s baskets.

A practical way of thinking about Easter baskets is to try to include things you NEED to buy for Spring anyway. Think swimsuits + flip flops + Spring or Summer clothes + sunglasses + fave sunscreen…etc. I also love to add fun things like sidewalk chalk, pool inflatables, or other outdoor toys (again, things we would eventually be buying anyway, but make it festive).

{lucky charm bars}

I kinda had a Mom fail this morning. You see, I’m known to be a Holiday Whore. Taking Holidays a little overboard is my thang. This year, not so much. Watching Instagram stories this morning made me feel like I failed. Not really! All the Leprechaun traps. Green toilet bowls. Foot prints. Festive snacks. I was THAT mom.

Honestly, I felt like my teenager was over all my over-the-top Holiday themed goodies. Turns out, she’s not. I think when you become accustomed to treats each Holiday, you actually look forward to them.

Thank god for Target Shipt. Ha! I had ALL THE THINGS green delivered to our doorstep to assembly St. Patrick’s Day green baskets. One for my girl and a couple more for our nephews.

Instantly I felt festive + happy AF! I LIVE for this stuff. And I can’t wait to drop off some Leprechaun cheer to my peeps.

I you too didn’t get all crazy this morning, don’t even trip. YOU ARE A GOOD MOM! A GREAT MOM! But, damn – social media sure can make you feel like you’re not for a hot one.

If you have a box of lucky charms. A stick of butter. And a bag of marshmallows. I got you!
