Easter is Sunday? Oh really didn't have any idea. It's funny how when little ones aren't running around you can forget about Easter. I have 3 sisters and the youngest one just turned 18 so we are all officially adults. It's kinda crazy and sad at the same time. It feels like the next generation is right around the corner but none of us have even thought about family and kids. Even though I have wished for one.
It's hard to realize your an adult and all your friends have families but you. I guess you could say that Justin and I are a family but it can be lonely at times... just the two of us. I would say the crappy part about it all is that you feel like your too old to celebrate things like Easter.
I always remember Easter as waking up searching for Easter baskets, dying/ hunting for eggs and getting to see long lost cousins. This Easter is just going to be different but at least my little sister called and said we should have a family dinner. At least she still has a bit of spirit in her.
So as I thought about it I figured there is no reason to not celebrate the kid stuff on Easter and I am thinking of upgrading some Easter activities to make them more adult.
Here is what I am thinking....
Easter Basket Cocktails via
Rim a martini glass with thick simple syrup and then dip into dyed green coconut flakes, then adorn with a little marshmallow peep. Think of it as your very own adult Easter Basket, but instead of being filled with candy, it’s filled with booze!
Prepare the glasses ahead of time and put them on a tray decorated with jelly beans and other seasonal delights for a stunning effect.
For the cocktail:
* 1 1/2 ounces Cherry Vodka
* 1/2 ounce Triple Sec
* 3 ounces Half and Half or Milk
* Dash Grenadine
Shake with ice until chilled. Pour into decorated glasses and serve.
Colored Deviled Eggs via
|10 lg||hard boiled eggs|
|3 dash(es)||food coloring|
|1 tsp||vinegar for each color you are using|
|1/2 c||mayonnaise or miracle whip or half of each|
Dyed Confetti Eggs Party Game via
Yummy doesn't that look good?
And maybe a giant paper flower making party with the sisters
And maybe some cute baskets... inspired by the strawberry wood containers I found like this...
Smart twist on a peep!
Oh... and kinda wanting ribs!
Now that I am reflecting it looks like I am pretty preoccupied with food. I told Justin that this week we would not eat out at all because that is our normal routine. I thought it would save money and help me lose weight but I have gained 2 pounds this week and feel like were spending a lot on groceries. I forgot how long it took to cook something but we are actually enjoying trying to cook something different every night. Lol but we have to take turns... cooking a real meal takes a lot of work!
HAVE A WONDERFUL EASTER AND I WILL SEE YOU MONDAY!!!
What are your plans... any cool ideas?
