FRIDAY FAVORITES...EASTER EDITION

Happy GOOD FRIDAY Peeps!!! I just love saying peeps!! I do not like to eat peeps but I like to say it and admire cute crafts and treats made with them, LOL!! What a week, I had a tummy bug Tuesday and have you ever felt like you've been ran over by a Mack truck..that is how I felt.... But I feel better now as the sun is shining and despite rain for our Easter, it will be sunny skies in my heart because all of our boys will be home and we are going to my moms for her incredible traditional Easter dinner which includes Pineapple Upside Down Cake!!

1. Remembrance with Alex & Ani 4 Leaf Clover Ring
As many of you may know, Tuesday marked a year since my grandma's passing and I debated mentioning it on the blog but I loved so much about her, so I had to share this. One of the sweet things revealed about her were the numerous 4 leaf clovers she'd found and pressed in her Bible. I wanted to do something special for my mom so I found this Alex & Ani Four Leaf clover ring and wrote a poem to go along with it.
*I left part of the poem out for family privacy

2. Fannie May and PB Speckled M&M's Eggs
Me want candy, lol. Fannie May Vanilla Buttercream eggs and M&M's speckled peanut butter eggs..my favorite easter Candy!!



3. Week's Attire

  30. That is the most precious gift ever for your mom to remember her mom by! My grandma pressed random tree leaves between her Bible pages! I found it over the winter and was amazed by the leaves she had pressed. You know you are just stunning as always in your ruffles. And you know I cannot get into them because I cannot be JUST LIKE my big sis! Look at that handsome little prep in his VV attire. Is he just like his mama when it comes to fashion? I think so! Buttercream eggs?!?! I am missing out!!! Love you sweet girl!

  34. I'm in need of the Target top you are wearing above!! (and a few of the other pieces). I also love that clover ring. My paternal grandmother was one of those individuals who could walk outside and find multiple four leaf clovers. Your posts always make me happy. Happy Easter my friend!
