How Cute Is Spring!?!

There is no question that I love all holidays! The celebrations, the family time, the cute decorations, the traditions. I look forward to every holiday and always do something big to celebrate.

A few weeks ago, as I sat and thought about the upcoming Easter holiday and what I wanted to do as a special Easter theme week here on the blog, I had so many ideas. As I mentioned on Monday, I could have done almost three weeks worth of Easter related posts. The ideas just kept coming.

Cute Easter treats, goodies, and crafts. A whole week of Easter dinner ideas and tons of ways to use up all those hard boiled eggs! But as usual time slipped away from me.

But one thing I couldn't get over was how utterly cute Easter/Spring is! Baby birds chirping in nests in the trees outside my window, beautiful Texas bluebonnets, little baby rabbits hopping in the field next to my house, and of course all the frenkin' adorable Easter crafts and decorations at the stores and all over the web.

I heart Spring!

This 'Bunny Bait' is cute as is, purely by it's name, but would be even more adorable packaged up in some colorful packaging and added to Easter baskets or handed out as a last minute Easter gift to neighbors. And did I mention this recipe whips up in less than 10 minutes and only uses 5 ingredients!

One Year Ago: Penne with Spinach and Chicken Sausage and Pecan Crusted Chicken Breasts
Two Years Ago: Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf with Tomato Gravy
Three Years Ago: Butterscotch Sweet Potato Cookie Sandwiches
