Happy Easter, my dears! I hope you have had a wonderful day, whether you are celebrating or not!
It’s always tough to be away from family on a holiday, but my Richmond friends and I made our own new traditions today!
First, we donned our Sunday best and met up at church for mass.
At 85* and breezy, we couldn’t have asked for a nicer day. We decided to take full advantage and dye eggs on the deck!
Grown up Easter is a lot of fun! For instance, when you dye eggs, you can also have wine . . .
And some 90s style Vanilla Ice!
C’mon—you know you always wanted to make an Ice Ice Baby egg!
My personal favorite, a special decoration for my cracked egg.
Here’s to the new tradition of decorating eggs on the deck!
Danielle also made Easter baskets for each of us!
Complete with a gazillion Clif Bars in mine! YESSSS!!!
Then, we cooked up a feast!
Beer can chicken . . .
Team effort! We stuffed it with (what else?) beer, rosemary, and garlic and grilled it for an hour. So moist! YUM!
On the side . . .
Green beans and mushrooms with garlic and almonds . . .
Grilled garlic bread with olive oil and parmesan for dipping . . .
And a simple salad with tomatoes, onions, and blue cheese.
My plate (X2 . . . or 3 . . . )
Cheers to Jesus! (We are so inappropriate . . . )
For dessert, I whipped up some simple Lemon Raspberry Tarts—super easy and decently healthy! Winning!
Don’t worry, I’ll share the recipe soon!
And just because it’s Easter, I had to have a zillion few jellybeans on the side!
Look at this little cutie I found!
Fun (???) fact: I hate grape flavored anything.
They’re my jellybeans, and I’ll sort them if I want to!!!
Quite possibly the highlight of the day, though, was this homeboy chocolate bunny that Bryce got for me!
Da’ bunny! Word to your mother. Yo.
Just want you to know, I think you’re a . . .
Hope you had a . . .
