Perfect Bunny Day!

April 25, 2011 · 24 comments

It was a perfect sunny Easter day!  Started off with a cup of coffee on the patio, while listening to the birds sing a lovely song.  Then to make the day even better, we were invited to enjoy the holiday with friends.  Holidays are always better spent in the company of friends and family.

The star of the day was the beautiful cake that was made from scratch.  I was told there was a lot of labor put into the dessert.  It was actually the first thing I noticed when we walked in.  So the blood, sweat and tears it took to make the cake was all worth it!

Everytime I go to our friends house we have such delicious food.  I love dessert the most of course, but then again, who doesn’t, right?

They had vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, with buttercream frosting.  The kids just loved the marshmellow bunny on the top.  I have to admit, it was my favorite, so cute!

 

They have a fun tradition that was started several years back in their family.   They start six months before Easter, and start collecting a lot of eggs.  Then you cut part of the end of the egg, empty it out, and save the shell.  They will eventually color the shell, and fill it with confetti.  What is this all for?  A fun Mexican tradition called Cascarones.

You break the confetti egg over someone’s head for good luck.  The kids love this tradition, and have way too much fun!


They made homemade Sangria, and it was WAY too good!  I drank a lot, and I am totally okay with that!

My friend has all her herbs planted, and they are already growing beautifully.  The one thing that caught my eye…

That is SERIOUSLY a rosemary bush….SAY WHAAAAAT????  I could make soooo many delicious recipes with that amazing rosemary bush!!!

I really did have a lovely day!  How was your wonderful Easter, or if you don’t celebrate….how was your wonderful Sunday?

Until next time, Come on in, Have a seat,

Hugs, Terra
