Five for Funday


 I am jumping back in this blogging game... I know it's a day or two late but I'm excited about linking up for Five for Friday Funday!
Happy  Easter!  I hope you had a beautiful day with the ones you love.  I loooove Easter but it sure is dangerous with all the delicious chocolates and jellybeans every which way.  Not safe for a girl who is trying to look good in a wedding dress this summer!  For some reason this picture gets me laughing every.single.time.

Speaking of weddings, my fiance and I went up to our wedding venue (it's almost five hours away... eeks!) with our families for our wedding tasting.  We had SO much fun trying all the delicious food and imagining what our big day will look like.   Plus, who doesn't love a bride and groom moose?  Look at that moose rocking her veil.  Work it, girl!


We went on an awesome field trip to the Boston Children's Museum.  If you haven't been, and are in the area, I highly recommend it!  It was so fun and engaging for the little ones, and I had lots of fun too!

 Before we went, I had the kids make predictions about what we might see on our trip.  By far, my most favorite prediction was Pingwings!  Invented spelling gets me every time :)

When we got back, this sweet little thing was so tired that she fell asleep on the floor while waiting for her bus.  So precious!

I caught some type of mysterious illness which can only be described as a "zombie death cold."  I couldn't.even.move and felt like I had been hit by a truck.  I called out sick from work {which I never, ever do!} and spent the day in bed watching ballet documentaries and snuggling a kitty.  I am so glad to be done with that awful zombie plague!
I held my annual Easter egg hunt for the little ones at school on Thursday {we had Friday off... woo hoo!}.  I do the same thing every year... pick them up from specials, and tell them that something VERY strange happened.  I think I saw something white and fluffy hopping out of the door when I left the room.  They start speculating and giggling.  Then we get to the classroom and see a note from Mr. Bunny himself on the whiteboard.  He gives them instructions on how many eggs they can collect, and thanks them for being good little bunnies at school.  Then, the kids go absolutely insane hunting for eggs!  I wish I would have taken pictures of all the madness.  One helpful hint is always, always, always have a few extra eggs stashed away.  For some reason there are always one or two that we can't find!

We also made my go to Easter project... swirly whirly eggs.  They are SO pretty and SO easy... my favorite combination!  For step by step directions check out {this post}.
