Easter Notes and Beyond!

We had a small but mighty crowd for Easter lunch! We had about 14-I had planned on 30, so we have lots of barbeque left! It was pretty tasty, and just right for a cool but sunny day...the kids hid and rehid eggs all afternoon!

We had a good visit with our guests and then just chilled the rest of the afternoon. Our chilling out included watching a baseball game on tv-the first of the pre-season for us! Since TBS has decided that Atlanta Brave baseball is not going to be part of their summer programming, we haven't settled on a regular team to watch. We watched Kansas City and the Chicago White Soxs yesterday...KC won. It just wasn't the same with no Chipper or Andruw to watch. Sigh.

I am ready for spring, and have many projects I want to complete before the boys are out of school for the summer. They are on spring break this week, so I'm sure most of my cleaning projects will take a back seat to having fun this week! Lynn left instructions this morning for the back porch to be cleared and cleaned, and I have a mountain of laundry to do, as usual for Monday morning! Yet, I'm on the computer telling you what I need to be doing! Much more fun than actually doing it!!

I am planning a Bridal Brunch for my nephew's fiancee, Melissa. Details will be forth-coming, but my plan is to go all out and make it as fabulous as my limited abilities will allow! I LOVE THIS STUFF!! I have gotten much, much inspiration from Tracey on her blog, so you should check it out. She just finished planning a wedding for her third child in one year! That's a lot of nuptuials! The most recent was black and white, which is what our bride and groom have chosen as their colors! I think it will be so elegant and pretty! I am loving this-a spring wedding is hard to beat!

Keep checking in for party plans here and menu plans over at Dinner

But for now...laundry awaits!!

See ya!

Hi Cathy. Fellow Magical Holiday Home member here. I just wanted to say hi. Your link to Notes from a Cottage Industry isn't working, but I knew just who you were talking about. She does have such great ideas!
