Thoughts of the Week

How to pack an Easter picnic.

These tips actually got me excited about cleaning.

Bring on peach season.

I've got my eye on this feather necklace.

Time to start planning some Texas adventures.

Holy goodness, could someone bring these over on Saturday morning?

And please send your tasty lunch photos my way!

Hope you have a lovely, springy Easter weekend with plenty of deviled eggs and chocolate bunnies!

Temporary Tattoo Easter Eggs

I used a little Texas inspiration for this year's Easter eggs. This has to be the easiest way to decorate eggs ever. I downloaded some western-inspired clip art from Etsy, printed the designs on temporary tattoo paper and applied one to each egg. I like the impact of the tattoos on un-dyed white eggs, but brown or dyed eggs would work too. You could also just buy temporary tattoos or even design your own. Anyway you go about it, you'll end up with some impressive Easter eggs.

Also, last year's subway Easter eggs.

Floral Frocks

'Tis the season for floral dresses and Anthropologie is overwhelming me with all their gorgeous prints of colorful blooms. How's a girl to choose?

Weekend in Photos

It was a small town Texas weekend for us. We met up with some friends in Lockhart for barbecue-eating at Black's, the oldest bbq restaurant in Texas, and then headed to Gruene to hear some live music and lounge around by the Guadalupe River. This Texas living is still so novel to me, and I'm loving every minute of it.

Pink Drink

Can you believe that color? The Maine Root soda company has a special edition Texas flavor called Pink Drink. It's made with prickly pear cactus juice, which gives it that outrageous hue, and it's sweetened with agave. I've had it a couple times already alongside pork buns and tacos, and I keep going back for more.

Pretend Party: Easter Lunch

After singing some of my favorite classic hymns at church ("He liiiives within my heart!"), there's nothing I like more than gathering around the table for a spring-inspired lunch, involving lots of items of the egg-variety and a few sweets. Here's some Easter inspiration for your table if you're on the hunt.

[found here: dried flowers; elderflower cordial; beet-pickled deviled eggs; placemats; Easter bread; lamb chops; pasta and peas; animal plates; lemon cake; tray; chocolate mushrooms]

Bike Likes

Anthropologie is really nailing it in the cute bicycle department. Of course, I'm more interested in the baskets and bells than the actual bike that goes with them.
