Easter Week

I was so excited for the Easter holidays and Lovely warm springtime weather bringing all the flowers.  I absolutely Love holidays & celebrating good times with family and friends.

This week started off with a bang.  Sunday night was the season finale of The Walking Dead and then  we always watch Talking Dead afterwards to rehash.  Emily and I Love watching that show and this was quite a finale!  We had loads of fun watching.  Monday we went out for treats & a movie.

Here's what I'm Loving:

Emily & I started off Easter week by having lunch at Starbucks so we could get our half price happy hour frappuccinos.

I ordered the Limited edition Birthday cake flavor which was a delicious combo of vanilla and hazelnut flavors and Emily got green tea.

Both were topped with a generous swirl of raspberry pink whipped cream.  
What a treat!  
Afterward we had a nice shop at Target starting with the One Spot stuff then we stocked up on my very favorite Easter candy,

White chocolate bunnies, 
Dove coconut creme eggs, which are insanely good 
and Reese's peanut butter eggs
~a trifecta of yumminess

What I've been watching:

Oh the costumes were insanely amazing, as was the set design.  The cast was outstanding  And the acting was Divine, every actor was uniquely suited for the role and played it so very well, so very entertaining.

This wedding dress is so dreamy!

Golly, the costumes were really something!
And the hats --perfection!

Helena Bonham Carter was funny & fantastic as the Fairy Godmother.  One of my favorite parts is when she does her magic turning the pumpkins into that glorious gold coach then transforms Cinderella's spectacular outfit.  
Afterwards we went to one of our favorite restaurants and discussed the details over dinner.  We both dreamed of what it would be like to cosplay those costumes.
We Loved every minute of it!

Obsessed With:

Easter Lillies smell like springtime!  
I picked this one up at Walmart along with a ham for the holiday and my prescription.  I plopped it in a cute bucket I picked up at Target earlier in the week.

I got these Ranunculus from Walmart, too.    
The flowers are so cute and perfect and these colors, aren't they dreamy?

Thrifty Finds:

I found a few cute old books and a mini donut pan.  I'm always on the lookout for old gardening books and any cool book with a pink binding.  I couldn't believe my luck when I found the donut pan.  I will surely put it to good use.

I spied these fantastic Retro-Wonderful pumps at my fav Goodwill, size 7, which is Emily's size.  I thought they'd go great with a pretty Easter dress.  Alas, Emily started feeling yucky on Good Friday and soon was running a fever.  So we had to cancel all our fun plans for the holiday weekend.  Even though our Easter was very low key the weather was beautiful, my garden looked dreamy and I just had to count my blessings.

Spring time is so Lovely and I love strolling through my garden every day to see what is poking up out of the earth or coming into bloom.

Here's What I'm Needing:

This new makeup line from Mac!  Isn't it gorgeous?  And the colors are soft pretty pinky beiges and browns that I like and that I would actually wear.  I've got to get to Sephora or Ulta to check them out.  Don't you Love beautiful make up?

Loved this message from the movie.  
It's a great motto.
Have you seen it?
