Easter Hoppinings


Well dear readers, I hope you all had a fabulous Easter and celebration of all that Christ has sacrificed for us!! As a special treat, you get to have an extra post from me this week! In honor of the Easter weekend, here are some pictures that I captured yesterday:)

Easter is about celebrating and remembering Christ's death on the cross and resurrection.....but it is also a time for enjoying family, playing the annual baseball game, hunting eggs (you are never to old to hunt eggs) and eating to much candy (well, for my family at least). Here's to bags of candy and sugar comas!! 


When Easter Sunday is wet....you wear old sneakers!!


Since it was Easter I had fun curling my hair quite 50's style. Unfortunately, due to the weather, by the time I took this picture it had fallen quite a bit, but it was fabulous while it lasted. Oh, and what is Easter without confetti in your hair!!:)



Furthermore, how could I forget my Easter dress!!! While I would have loved to take even more pictures in this dress, especially with the shoes, sweater, and jewelry I wore with it to church, a full post on the dress will have to wait for a later date. Due to the weather, I quickly changed this dress into a slightly more casual ensemble (shown in the pictures), but it was still Easterie/Eastery [just made it up] :)

Dress: eShakti


This was my first eShakti dress and it arrived just in time for Easter! I was so happy to wear this as the colors were perfect and I loved the style! 



And of course....with all of the candy you are prone to being a little silly:):)

"Hoppy" somewhat late Easter!!

How was your Easter?

Do you have any Easter traditions?

  1. I LOVE your dress Madison! And your hair looks lovely too! We typically have a nice family dinner on Easter, sometimes inviting friends over, or going over to a friend's house instead.

    Happy Late Easter to you too!

  3. Very pretty dress! I love that the colours instantly remind me of Easter candy, even if I saw it at an entirely different point in the year.

    I hope that rest of April (and spring itself) are just as terrific for you.

  6. I love these colorful pictures! Your dress is lovely even with the sneakers! It adds to the 1950s look of it! I'd love to see how you make prepare and fill the real egg shells without breaking them. Those look pretty cool too!

    1. Thank you Jill :) I would have to agree that the sneakers actually did make it look 50's. As for the egg shells, that is a tradition my mom loves to do every year....make confetti eggs!! It is not as hard as it looks:) maybe next year I can do a post on how to make them???
