Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone. I am so excited to go to spend my first Easter with my husband. I put together a little basket for him, and we are going out to brunch with the family after Mass. It is going to be sweet and low key and positively wonderful. Are any of you doing anything special? I'd love to hear!

Since this weekend is Easter I decided to theme my Friday roundup around Easter as well.

I have always loved dressing up on Easter. When I was little I would wear gloves and a bonnet. This year, I have found so many bright and lovely dresses in stores! I think one of the new Draper James dresses would be perfect, have you seen the new styles? Plus, they dropped their prices! 

Also, Easter TV specials. NBC is doing a live special of Jesus Christ Super Star on Sunday, you can find more information here. Also, the 10 Commandments are on ABC on Saturday at 7pm.

My family always has ham for Easter and a variety of desserts. Here are some recipes for my favorite lemon bars, carrot cake, ice cream sundaes, and a bunny cake. Also, if you have the time, Williams & Sonoma has some wonderful Easter theme bake ware right now that would make the perfect dessert - I love this bundt pan, cookies cutters and cupcake wrappers.

Finally, how funny is it that Easter is April Fools Day? I’m trying to come up with a good trick for my parents. Any ideas? 

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend, and a Happy Easter and or Passover spent with the ones you love.
