Five Loves on Friday









1. What a joy it is to celebrate our RISEN Savior on Easter, and always! "Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live," (John 11:25) NeedGod.com
2. How beautiful is this arrangement my cousin created for Easter?! LOVED it!
3. NEWS FLASH! Gingerbread houses are so 4 months ago, there's a new customizable treat in town for Spring! Instead of an egg hunt this year, my Aunt Ann had a super "sweet" activity for the kids! She baked giant cupcakes (as seen on tv ;)) and set out such a fun spread of toppings, Willy Wonka would have been taking notes. My girls had a blast creating these delicious masterpieces ... and we enjoyed dessert for days! :*)
(Recognize my aunt? The last time you saw her she was sneaking her way through a mission in OPERATION: CHEER. :))
4. Princess and Little One put on a bike show for us over the weekend and got their daddy and I the best seats in the house driveway! Our patio chairs were reserved via personalized chalkboard name tags, adorned with blankets for added coziness, and came complete with complimentary refreshments (from their Easter candy stash). The bike tricks were as good as the Cadbury eggs!
5. Spring weather has finally arrived! Can I get a "Hip, Hip, HOORAY"? :) An afternoon spent lounging in the sunshine was oh so refreshing!


Happy Friday, lovelies! Hope you all enjoy a fabulous weekend!

  8. I love the cupcake cake. It's something I would have loved when I was younger for my birthday, but I didn't even know it was possible :)

I would love to hear from you today!! I enjoy reading each and every comment I receive. (I do moderate them before they're published. Gotta keep it family friendly! ;)) My preferred means of replying to you is via email, so please make sure you aren't a "no-reply blogger". It's sad when you take the time to leave a sweet lit'l comment, but I'm unable to reach you with my appreciation.
