WWTKW: Bunny Time

Gah!  Another busy week!  And a headache to add to the fun today!  Woooo!!

The good news?  It’s almost EASTER!!  (The sad news?  It’s my last “winter long weekend” of the year…but we’ll save that whining for another day…)

So…today I’m going to jump back into the We Want to Know Wednesday Q&A, hosted by Mamarazzi & Crazymama.

008TSD_Katherine_Heigl_063 Here are this week’s questions:

{1} What is your favorite Easter tradition?
{2} Tell us about your Easter meal.
{3} Do you decorate for Easter?
{4} Your Easter basket is not complete without....
{5} Are you getting an Easter dress?

My answers:

{1} What is your favorite Easter tradition?  That’s gotta be the Easter Egg hunt.  Of course, we don’t have one anymore – apparently my brother, sister & I are too old?  What??? Ridiculous. – but it was my favourite part of Easter as a kid, and I hope someday to have my own kiddies to hide eggs and treats for!

{2} Tell us about your Easter meal.  Mmmm…I love big family dinners, and Easter is no exception!  It’s one that tends to change from year to year, depending on who’s hosting.  But I actually had INPUT this year!  We are going to my Aunt Marion & Uncle Eric’s for dinner on Sunday, and I happened to be with my mom and aunt the other day when they were deciding on the menu.  Aunt Marion asked, “Roast Beef or Turkey?”  I voted Turkey & won.  So turkey dinner it shall be!  Yay!!  With stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberries, buns, corn, I think my mom decided on a romaine salad of some sort, my sister’s making broccoli salad, I’m making cheesecake for dessert, and I think my mom’s also making a carrot cake.  And my mom was also kinda hung up on making turnips, so there may be that as well, even if she is the only one who eats ‘em.  ;)

Mmmmmm…can’t wait!!

{3} Do you decorate for Easter?  I have a few little Easter-y knick knacks that I put out – two bunnies that I bought at Michael’s last year, a little egg with a chick in it, a sign that says “Spring” and a few pails of candy here and there.

{4} Your Easter basket is not complete without....  Peanut butter eggs.  I go in search of them every year.  They are my favourite.  Not even necessarily a Reeces product.  The cheap, gold-wrapped PB eggs from Wal-Mart work for me!  I also love sugar-coated jelly bunnies and Mini Eggs.  Oh.  Have I mentioned lately my addiction to candy???

{5} Are you getting an Easter dress?  Um, no.  I don’t generally wear dresses. lol  But I WILL try to find something in my closet that is Easter-y in colour.  Actually, I may just go with my teal-green zip-up  sweater over a white tee & jeans, because I bought mint-green coloured nail polish that I want to try our, and I think the colours will go well together.  Sad, isn’t it, when I plan my outfits based on my nail colour? ;)

I DO look forward to seeing the little girls at church Easter morning…I’m sure Danica, Maddy, and Molly will be dressed to the nines in their Easter dresses!!

Hope you all have a Hoppy Easter!! :)

Candy is my biggest weakness. I could eat it non-stop...and now I want a PB egg really bad!

VandyJ said...

Mmm, Easter dinner sounds delish!
We are probably having Prime rib. I'm looking forward to dinner on Sunday.

dddiva said...

PB eggs are good, frozen PB eggs are my downfall.

Sounds like a fun time, I love turkey. :D

They only let the kids do the eggs here too- what's up with that?

Jo said...

ooh Peanut butter eggs sounds really good! Pity we don't get them here.

Sarah said...

I can't stop eating easter chocolate either, I had just weened myself off the xmas and valentines day chocolate, and now im hooked again!

Sadly, I think my daughter is beginning to outgrow easter egg hunts and she's only 9! :o( I miss them!

All of these holidays are so bad for someone like me who has a very unhealthy addiction to chocolate, caramel, and marshmallows.

Nicole said...

You and Mark would get along great for the Peanut Butter chocolatey things. And come on, where's the fun in not wearing a dress on Easter. It's Easter after all :) haha

Mamarazzi said...

those peanut butter eggs look yum!! i am also a huge fan of the mini cadbury eggs.

i love that nail polish color, very springy!!

your Easter dinner sounds divine!!

thanks for linking up!!

Maybe you can "help" the kids at church with the hunt, Jill. Does your Mom mash the turnip with carrots? That's a staple in our meal.

The little ones will be delightful all dressed up....I had better bring my camera as they are singing for us. Should be fun.

A fancy turkey dinner sounds delicious! I only get that twice a year: at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now I want that, but we're grilling hamburgers and hot dogs instead!
