Easter Recap-2014




My weekend was really low key. I spent most of my weekend planning and strategizing… For some strange reason, I did not get mimi’s Easter Basket together until the day of Easter. I have no idea what was going on with me. I was really struggling with what to put in his basket at the age of eleven, and at what age would I stop creating Easter baskets for him. Earlier in the week, I wanted to stop at my local Dollar Tree to pick up a couple of items however time got the best of me during the week. I woke up Easter morning in hopes that I would be able to run to Target to pick up a couple of items. (Yes, I’m one of those people that run to Target for everything) To my surprise Target was closed. Instead I ran to Dollar Tree. In the future plan on creating a bin with knick-knacks of things that I can put in an Easter basket for him.


Also, this year I decided not to host Easter Dinner at my home, I usually try to host an Easter egg hunt for the kids. Which they seem to really enjoy, however for several reasons, I opted not to.

 
However, I did bake homemade vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. They were amazing!!! I’ve used this recipe several times now and hands down it is my absolute favorite. I ran out of all-purpose follow and had to substitute ¾ cup with self-rising flour. (I think I’m actually going to continue with this method) The cupcakes were moist and airy. (sigh)

Anyone who, overall my weekend was amazing J

What age did you stop receiving Easter Basket’s?

 

Thank You For Stopping By!

Mommy Time-Homemade Frozen Daiquiris


 

Now that it's officially spring it's time to keep the "mommy drinks" flowing. (This is coming from someone who loves sweet girly drinks. However, by the end of the day I'm usually exhausted and just end up falling asleep. L)
Since I love "Girly Drinks" so much, I decided to make a homemade frozen daiquiri. I had everything on hand thanks to the huge bag of frozen strawberries I purchased from Bj's that shares the responsibility of being the one of the ingredients for my smoothies as well. J
I decided the first time I tried the recipe to make a single serving, you know just in case it comes out wrong... I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make. Besides my mini blender acting wacky, this is definitely a recipe I will keep close by.
Do you have a favorite “Mommy Drink”?
