Friday Favorites {3.25.16} Easter Edition

Happy Friday!

Before I get to the link up I need to give a big shout out to my Mama who turns 60 today!! Happy Birthday Mom, I love you!

Me, My Mom, My Sister <3

So for today's link up I'm going to highlight some favorite Easter things/moments


Pictures with the Easter Bunny. Sometimes I really wonder why I make my kids take pictures with him, but hey, I guess it's my right as a Mom :)

2011 - Brayden's first encounter with the Bunny.  He's a little unsure, but he runs with it.

2012 - A whole other story.  Brayden couldn't get away from the bunny fast enough!

2013 - Ella now gets to partake in this fun! Brayden still wants nothing to do with it.

2014 - Ella is now extremely pissed off that she has to sit on this bunny's lap but Brayden is starting to come around...

2015 - Avery's first Bunny experience and girlfriend rocked it! Ella was still a little scared and was crying right before the picture was taken and Brayden finally doesn't mind it at all!

2016 - The girls wanted NOTHING to do with the bunny but Brayden was practically his BFF!


My favorite Easter food is definitely brunch food.  2 staples would be a breakfast casserole and cheesy potatoes. 

Breakfast Casserole. Our favorite breakfast for dinner! You can also make ahead and pop into the oven in the morning.:
cheesy hashbrowns: 2 lbs thawed hash browns, 1/2 c melted butter, 1/4 t pepper, 1 t salt, 1/2 c chopped onion, 1 can cream of chicken soup, 2 c sour cream, 2 c shredded cheddar, (mix all above & put in greased 9x13 pan), then combine 1/4 c melted butter with 2 c crushed corn flakes and spread on top of potato mixture, bake at 350 for 50-60 min:


Of course Easter brunch wouldn't be complete without dessert! My all time favorites are cheesecake and carrot cake.

I saw Shay post this a couple weeks ago and it looks sooooooooooo good!


One of our favorite activities is definitely an Easter Egg Hunt.  We usually do one at our house Easter morning then do another at my in laws.  The kids LOVE a good hunt :)



Here's some of my favorite Easter decor I've been seeing all over the internet.


I hope everyone has a great Easter Weekend!
