The grazing board. AKA Charcuterie Platter. Incase you haven’t noticed, they’re kinda my thang. Today I’m sharing my Easter candy board along with two other boards I created. A Char-Kid-Erie Board and an Adult cheese board. But this Easter board just might be one of my faves so far. All the things kids love….which keep their grubby little fingers of the fancy cheese (which we all know they don’t even like anyway) lol!
Scroll down and I’ve shared each item that I used on this Easter Board. You can add to your Target order and pick-up within 1 hour. All the goodies (minus the platter + bunny bowl) rang in under $10.
Be savage, not average. According to the Enneagram test, I’m a 8 wing 7.
Type 8: The Challenger! Self-confident. Decisive. Willful. Confrontational.
Basic Fear: of being harmed or controlled by others
Basic Desire: to protect themselves (to be in control of their own life + destiny)
Eights are assertive, strong and decisive. Eights may become confrontational and intimidating in a situation where they feel others are more dominant than them, but they can also use their strength to improve others’ lives.
Not sure that’s 100% me, but I did take the test 4 times and got the same damn answer, so????
I LOVE Easter time. Well, I love all Holidays. We have so many fun Easter traditions, which makes this Holiday so fun. I always fill Bay’s basket with all the things summer time. New swimsuit. Beach towel. Goggles. Cute floatie. I pretty much follow what my parents did when I was a kid. Always a swimsuit and saltwater sandals. Oh and lots of candy. You can’t forget the candy! It’s like a Christmas stocking, but with summer stuff. All the fun little goodies.
I used to be able to post all my goodies here, but now I have a tween that likes to read my blog and look at all my photos. And since I want her to be somewhat surprised, I’m going to save her exact basket for Easter morning. I’m sharing all kinds of ideas. Some are in her basket this year. Some I’ve used in previous years. I even got extra and did a boy basket too!
I try to think of things she’s going to need as summer approaches and Spring break rolls around.
How adorable are these little bunny butt cookies? Bay helped me make them and I LOVE how they turned out. So simple too. We used a sugar cookie package to make these. Because, sometimes….we just don’t have time to whip out the mixer and make a hot mess. lol.
All you need is your fave sugar cookie recipe. Or a packaged mix. A bunny cookie cutter. I found this one on Amazon after searching all the stores in town (with NO luck) and Amzon delivered in 1 day. Well done Amazon, well done. And a cute dab of frosting for a cotton tail.
This is a great cookie to make with little ones. You can’t mess it up. And they take no time at all. Nothing gets you into the Holiday spirit like a cookie baking day anyway.
Hi friends! Hope you had a great weekend. The weather was so good yesterday, I didn’t want Sunday to end. Then Monday had to happen. Woke up sick, I think? Lost my voice over the weekend. Was kinda thinking allergies, but today I’m just beat. So, I’m going to dedicate the week to wellness and self care. Hopefully I can get myself on the mend. Because, God knows, I don’t have time to get sick.
Intentions for the Week:
Take care of myself (I don’t have time to get sick)
Make a Spring Self Care list
Celebrate Cory’s Birthday
Share past Easter posts
Help Bay work on her Spring Show buyer letter
Take outfit photos for the blog
Write a post on Easter basket ideas
Plan out our day in the City
Drink a shit-ton of water
Hit my health goals for the week
This week on the blog: Spring Self Care. Share a new #ootd. Lots of Easter goodies.
One question I get asked all the time? What I use to take my photos and how I edit my photos. I’ve been meaning to write this post for sometime…decided today is the day! Ha! Here are some tips + tricks that I’ve picked up from other bloggers along with lots of trial and error.
Before we get started……I strictly use my iPhone 8 Plus. I go back and forth from portrait mode to regular photo mode. Back in December, I purchased a preset and I’ve been using it ever since.
This week on the blog: Easter table setting. Spring To-Do’s. Easter #ootd’s.
Highlights from the weekend……
You’re never going to guess what Cory + I did Friday evening…
Symposium in Davis is legit. Cory took me for the first time a few years ago and I fell in love with this little hidden gem. Amazing Greek food. And that pizza right there was divine! Bill Clinton and Arnold Schwarzenegger have dined at this place…..just a tid bit I thought you should know…lol.
