Easter is coming soon and I’m more than a little ready to rip into a big basket of sugary goodness. Why, you ask? I gave up sugar for Lent and it’s getting a little bit harder every day. But I suppose that’s the point, right?
I will confess that Christmas is my favorite holiday, but Easter ranks right near the top, too. Why? Well, it’s so much fun. A rabbit sneaks into your house and leaves a basket of treats? Of course I’m going to love that!
My best friend and I have a tradition of getting Easter Baskets for each other the day after Easter. That way we get the best stuff at half price. And since we’re adults we can stand to wait the extra day. We both know each other so well it’s easy to get stuff we’ll both love. ♥
I also love making Easter plans with the family. The last few years we’ve gone to my parents house some time around Easter and have had dinner and a little egg hunt. My newest niece will be having her first Easter experience this year and I can’t wait. She’s already such a happy little girl, and I’m sure she’s old enough to think it’s super fun to have her mom take her around the yard to pick up the little eggs and treats.
I have three giant boxes of Easter decorations in my attic…I have just remembered it’s time to bring them out. I try to decorate about a month before any holiday. I’ll only get about three weeks of Easter decor if I get them out tonight. Yikes!
At least I’m already partially prepared for the holiday…I started shopping last year when things hit 75% off. (Not candy, that would be gross…but little fun toys and baskets are ready for the big day!)
I’ve talked so much about the things I love about Easter. What don’t I like? Well, for one, the fact that I gave up sugar. (Three more weeks, three more weeks, three more weeks…) Also, that Easter grass. Am I the only one who can’t stand the stuff? It’s such a mess and gets all over the house. Yuck!
I am hoping my basket includes some fun toy-obviously I love bunnies, so a bunny would be fun. Candy is always great. I love GOOD jelly beans…not just any old kind. Candy with caramel, no nuts, please. Oh, and maybe a Whatchamacallit bar. Those are my favorite. I’ve been good this year. Please???
What do you love about Easter? I’d love to hear!
