I hope everyone had a very happy Easter! DH and I decided to forgo heading out to our family's houses and stayed in and made a little dinner for ourselves which was actually really nice.
I'm at that age where I really start wanting to make my own traditions as far as the holidays are concerned, and I feel that most people don't start to do that until they have children. I'm not ready for children at this point, but I do miss the traditions that families make together -- so I decided just to go ahead and start some traditions in our childless household :) !
It didn't turn out as planned exactly, but it was fun! Our "grand feast" consisted of deviled eggs, spinach artichoke dip w/tortilla chips, yam fries, and sugar cookie bars with buttercream icing. The DH had some ham, but since I'm a veggie girl -- I just stuck w/the sides ;).
It was a nice, relaxing day of crafting and eating yummy food! Saturday night however was somewhat of a candy disaster! Who knew that every 24 hour store would be out of ALL Easter candy including Walmart?!?!?! Well I missed the memo because I was shocked! DH and I finally tracked down some Hershey Bliss Eggs at CVS, but it just didn't feel the same! I will be stockpiling Easter candy the minute it comes out next year I can assure you ;).
