Bits of Bliss- Easter Edition

Happy Good Friday to you!

This is the first time in 26 years I did not stuff a million eggs with candy and create baskets for my husband and kids. Due to recently diagnosed food allergies we all agreed to end the era of the Easter sugar high. I’m ok with it.

No one was really interested in dyeing eggs either. But it makes me happy and I LOVE deviled eggs so I did a dozen with some Spritz egg wraps from Target. So cute and quick! These colors and patterns were my favorite.

Next year I am going to try this:

Dyeing eggs with old silk ties and scarves.

I really loved this simple idea. Carrot Cutlery.

Easter Party Ideas - silverware like carrots

My beautiful girl and I are celebrating her birthday by attending the Round Top Antique Fair. (I’ve actually been in Round Top since yesterday. You can follow our adventures and finds HERE.) We will return tomorrow in time for Easter. I’ll have pictures and all the details next week.

Lastly, I wanted to let you know of a movie that the entire family might enjoy watching on Easter. It’s called “God’s Not Dead”. I had wanted to see it in theaters but never had the time. I watched it earlier this week on Netflix instant streaming. It is also available on DVD. While the film didn't win any Oscars it is enjoyable. If you’ve ever struggled with how to share the message of God’s love this movie can give you some really good ideas on how to start the dialog.

Here’s the trailer.

I shall close this post with three words… (Those who’ve watched the film will understand. :)

"God's Not Dead" is an awesome movie. My mom let us borrow it and we loved it!

I want to see that movie too. Hope you two are having tons of fun. Can't wait to see what you bring home.

Linda said...

That looks awesome and Amen!
I do have to stuff a hundred plastic eggs later today because my 3 young nieces are coming down tomorrow and we're having an egg hunt. ;) I still do an Easter basket/gift for Sarah and this year I included her boyfriend, but I don't do that for Jim, so we've cut back.

Your trip sounds wonderful. I enjoyed seeing the photos on your Instagram.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend.
Love, Linda

I can't wait to read about your Round Top trip! My husband has another business conference nearby in the fall so I hope I will be able to make another side trip then.

Laura, I'm glad you are getting to experience Round Top. Hope you are having a grand time. How fun to be with your daughter! Where are you staying? I'll be eager to hear what you think and where you liked to shop. I went to Marberger on Tuesday and then back for Big Red Barn on Wednesday. I bought a bamboo bookcase, and it was delivered today. I'm a happy girl!
Have fun and safe travels home.

Happy Easter Laura! He is Risen! I saw the movie in theaters and thought it was done very well. There is another movie in theaters called " Do you Believe" ,,,sounds like a good one as well. I dyed about 6 eggs for my spring display and bought 2 small packets of chocolate peanut butter cups for my sons and daughters in law to share. So different when the kids are grown! Enjoy your time with your daughter .
