I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday. My mom and Rudy had a brunch at their house and that is always the perfect way to spend a Sunday! We had french toast casserole, egg & sausage bake, guava pastries, omelettes made to order (thanks to Hubby) and of course MIMOSAS! All the food was amazing. We played Outburst, Catch Phrase and Kan Jam because our family get-togethers aren’t complete without some friendly competition. I have to say my Kan Jam playing was on point, even Luke mentioned it. Usually my frisbee throwing skills are severely lacking, maybe it was the mimosas. 🙂
Sunny had an Easter egg hunt at the beach with her little cousins so we knew they probably wouldn’t be making it and of course they were missed. All the adults were eyeing the eggs mom made for Sunny because rumor had it one of them had a $100 bill. I think it was a myth but that didn’t stop Grandma from wanting to find it, ha! We always have such a good time when we all get together and Sunday was no exception. I just have the best family! We say it all the time but we need to make Sunday brunches a monthly tradition 🙂
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful week and have an even better Easter weekend! I got to leave work today at 1 so the weekend is off to a great start. Got to leave early and have brunch with the family on Sunday with unlimited mimosas, sounds perfect to me!! Now time for some favorites….
Favorite Beach Accessory: This Santa Barbara Round Towel is so gorgeous and spacious that is definitely a must have for the beach.
Favorite New Hobby: I recently bought a Paint by Sticker book and I am a tad obsessed at the moment. I think I did one page every day for the past week. It is a fun take on the adult coloring trend. You get a template that is number coded and a page of stickers that match up with the numbers to make a really pretty picture. They have them for both kids and adults.
Favorite Coffee Treat: Coffee is a must have in my life! I am usually a hot coffee kind of girl but every once in a while I love a good iced coffee drink. Usually it’s a Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee with caramel but these 15 iced coffee recipes look so yummy I may have to try one or ten.
Favorite Bar Must Have: I saw the “Booze” decanter on Pinterest and thought it was a perfect accessory for a home bar. Putting liquor in a decanter just makes a bar look so much more sophisticated. Make sure you also check out the rest of the products on this site. I just got lost in it for a good twenty minutes. So much cute stuff!
Favorite Spring Dress: Tis the season for floral prints. Magnolia Boutique has some adorable dresses that are great for Spring including this “Bloom Where You Are Planted” navy shift dress. I want the entire outfit from the necklace to the dress to the wedges!
Favorite Craft: Kelsie Ann at the blog Cut, Craft, Create made this personalized photo map and it is such a good idea. You take a picture of you and your travel partner(s) in whatever state you visit and add it to a map. It is a great way to track where you travel and it also will make you want to visit every single one of our 50 states. You can even get really ambitious and try and do one of every continent. Wouldn’t that be nice?!
Favorite Date Night Idea: The Dating Divas website has some awesome date night ideas for you and your honey and of course my favorite one is the Bookstore Date! You each get a card with different categories and then you have to separate and go find a book that fits. For example one of the cards is labeled “Recipes” so you have to go to the cookbook section and pick out a recipe you would like to cook for you both. Another is “Quizzes” so you have to go find a magazine that has a quiz you can do together. There are a total of 6 different categories. It is a cute date night for any of my fellow book nerds.
