weekend recap: egg-citement

i hope you had a great weekend. mine was quite busy – lots of egg-citement if i do say so (i’m really not that cheesy, but i had to. ok, maybe i am. sometimes). i took a lot of pics, so i’ll let them mainly speak for themselves…

we went out for dinner, drinks and some bowling friday night.

{i’m sure the scores are quite wrong…but i am proud of my two strikes}

saturday i finally bought myself some cake pans, and made a lovely cake for sunday – that i completely forgot in my fridge {insert near tears, some swears, and blaming ryan for rushing me while leaving}. fail. that night we celebrated brooke’s big birthday with a party and some comedy – we saw the cupid players at the io theater (highly recommend).

cake filling

{homemade strawberry whipped cream filling}

(and then i frosted it with my favorite lemonade frosting, but neglected to take a photo of the finished product, since my topping decoration idea failed, and then i was going to pipe frosting decorations at my parent’s house on easter…and then, you know, i forgot the cake).

(topping idea? sugar bird’s nest, with my favorite cadbury mini eggs and a peep. cute, right? i tried twice, and then gave up.)

not a nest

(this? is not a birds nest}

i brought the cake to work on monday, so it wasn’t a total waste. i think they enjoyed it:

and then it was easter. we went over to my parent’s house, feasted on great food and had a great time.

  1. Looks like you had a great Easter! I am sad we couldn’t spend it together. Miss you!
    Where did you get the ideas of the bird nest? Do you have pictures?
