Happy Easter!

I think many of us probably remember getting a new dress to wear on Easter. I know I do. In addition to that, I would always get a new pair of shoes to wear with the dress. I recall being particularly excited about a pair of patent leather Mary Jane shoes I got one year for Easter. (Some things apparently never change!) Well, when I saw this floral dress at Target a few weeks ago, I knew it was perfect for Easter and it brought back nice memories of getting a new special frock just to get dressed up for the holiday!

Speaking of childhood memories, I like to keep certain traditions alive that I remember for each of the holidays. For Easter, I was always fond of decorating Easter eggs, so that's a ritual that I do on Easter, no matter what. The one lesson I've learned is that you should not leave the dyed eggs out on the table or counter to dry if you have a dog! One year William got into them, eating them all, and the end result was a dog with some really, really bad diarrhea on Easter! Another tradition for Easter is making a peanut butter bird's nest cookie that I used to make with my mom for Easter, but unfortunately the stores were out of the main ingredient (peanut butter chips) needed for them, so I will be skipping those this year. Well, I guess some traditions can skip a year. I hope that no matter what your Easter traditions entail, you have a good one!

  1. The pastel accessories are just perfect with this, and it is such a pretty floral dress! :)

    Sometimes I'd get a new dress for Easter, but mostly it's Christmas we buy new outfits for :)

    Hope you had a happy Easter! We have really enjoyed the long weekend, with beach time and family time and some long naps from the boys letting me catch up with blogging!

  3. That style is so sweet on you and I love the circle bag. Perfect for spring. If only the weather would cooperate here, I’d join you!! <3 Jamie

  4. Beautiful dress! I still love buying an Easter dress! It's one tradition I try to continue! Eggs went by the wayside a while ago though! Ha, I'm too messy!
