Five On Friday

Easter Weekend is here!  Our days are going to be filled with plenty of sunshine and lots of festive activities.  And my mouth is already watering over the delicious Brunch & Easter dinner I am planning.  Now let's get to my five...  As always, thanks to all the lovely hosts: Christina, Darci, April, & Natasha!


I'm always disappointed with how my dyed Easter eggs turn out each year.  I'm not really a vibrant colors kind of person, so most of the egg dying kits are garbage in my eyes.  I'm more into the pastels, but they are harder to get right.  This year, I'm thinking about trying this method.  I mean the picture looks beautiful... we'll see how mine turn out.  Anyone have any amazing egg dying tricks?

All week I have been seeing people "practicing" egg hunts with their littles...  Liam has had zero practice and instead is going to be completely surprised by our neighborhood Easter egg hunt!  I'm so excited to see his big bright eyes light up and watch his small feet run as fast as he can while trying to keep up with the bigger kids.  I like that our egg hunt will be his 1st (and only) and hopefully that will help make the event that much more special.   Also anxious to see his hunting skills...

Our new book club book has been chosen, and it's The Alchemist.  This has been on my "to read" list for awhile, so I'm happy to finally have a reason to bump it to the top.  This looks to be a relatively short read, so I'm hoping to fit in another book this month too!

A couple weekends ago Conor & I went out for brunch at Avenue's Proper, which has an eclectic menu.  I barely glanced at it before deciding on chicken & waffles (with a thyme infused maple syrup I might add)!  What?!  Am I pregnant?!  (I am not by the way).  This was my first chicken & waffles experience, and I loved it.  Loved, loved, loved.  And now I can't stop thinking about chicken & waffles!  I think this might be my new brunch staple!

Don't forget to enter my Willow Crowns giveaway!  These bowties are absolutely adorable, as is everything in Megan's shop.  Liam will definitely be rocking one of his this Sunday!  A winner will be chosen tomorrow.

Happy Easter friends!

  1. I'm not even attempting egg dying yet this year! I suspect it would be an epic failure with my 2 year old! Pretty sure he'd end up more dyed than the eggs. Have a Happy Easter!

  2. Love those eggs!! So pretty! Sounds like you have a nice weekend planned!! Have fun, Happy Easter!

  3. Those chicken and waffles look amazing. Good luck with the egg dying! I love the look of those. Happy Easter!

    1. They were even better than they look! I'm excited about the egg dying and hope mine turn out just as beautiful...we shall see!

  4. Those eggs are so pretty. I bought some white plastic eggs that said could be dyed but they barely took the color... So disappointed! I read thag book in high school and I think I liked it :). Happy Easter!

  5. I love those eggs, seems simple enough! I normally just dump some in the store tablet cups and am done with it. I didn't even realize there were so many creative things to do with eggs, geez. Maybe I'll up the game next year, but this year we bought more store tablets, ha.

    Aria hasn't done any egg hunting, but I'm also pretty sure she won't do much of it this weekend. Putting things in a basket is not her strong point.

  6. Love those eggs!!!! Happy Easter!

  7. Those ombre eggs are amazing! Might have to try that next year! Happy Easter!

  8. haha can't believe I missed this! Hope you and your fam had a fabulous weekend!! xoxo
