First let me start by saying that I hope all of you had a wonderful Easter (those of you who celebrated)! I hope you were able to enjoy good food, great company and even better weather. I’m not sure what the weather was like in other parts of the world, but it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL in Atlanta this weekend.
My weekend was JAM PACKED with events and activities and it’s safe to say that I am definitely on the struggle bus today. It’s okay though, it was all worth it. On Saturday I helped throw a baby shower for my best friend, Mary Ann! There was such a good turnout and the décor was just precious. We did Lavender/Purple and Gold (MA’s request) and incorporated as many Disney references as we could! I tried my hand at my first ever Castle Diaper Cake (I will leave a picture below) and all of the food had Disney themed names! Gaston’s Libations, Moana’s Mimosas and Belle’s Bellinis were a great touch (shoutout to Marissa) and I think everyone enjoyed showering the expecting couple with more love and gifts than any one person could need! Little peanut has hit the jackpot as far as parents go; they are loving, devoted, understanding, gentle and full of laughs. I can’t wait to meet my “niece” and spoil her rotten. I would go to the ends of the earth for Mary Ann and would do the same for my sweet little Clara Rose!
After (somewhat) recovering from all of the festivities on Saturday, David and I celebrated Easter with our families all day Sunday. We ate a quick Easter lunch with my mom and grandpa before heading over to his grandparent’s house. We have (very) recently gained a few new family members and this was my first time meeting and interacting with them. There are 3 boys; ages 5, 6, and 9….and let me tell you, they are a handful, in the best way of course! They are full of energy and have such a sweet spirit about them. I am so happy that they have joined the family and look forward to getting to know them better in the coming months! David mentioned wanting to get them a little something for Easter so my mom graciously helped us put together a basket for each of the boys; the level of excitement they expressed when receiving those baskets made my heart smile. David’s grandparents always do an Easter egg hunt for the kids so after (our second) lunch we went and hid what felt like 2435873467 eggs in the yard so that the kids could get to huntin’! It was a beautiful day out and I think everyone enjoyed it, so I’d say it was a raging success. I mean come on, what kid doesn’t want to find eggs full of candy and money?!?!
How was your weekend? Did you guys do anything special for the Easter holiday!?!
