Easter Weekend

Hope you all had a happy Easter! Matt and I spent the weekend with his family in Winston-Salem, NC and it was absolutely wonderful. Since I am feeling particularly lazy, here is a recap in {mostly} photos! 

Before we left for Winston, I homemade my first carrot cake! It was a TON of work, but I was really happy with how it turned out {and tasted}! Apparently everyone else thought it turned out pretty good too because we only brought a teeeny sliver back home. I promise to post the recipe this week!

I also treated myself to a shellac Easter pink manicure. I am not sure how I feel about the new “paint one nail a different color” trend…but somehow I was convinced to go sparkly on my ring finger. I am still undecided as to whether or not I like it.

 Saturday, Mrs. M and I had fun dying sparkly Easter eggs! We even wrapped rubber bands around the eggs to create a fun design.


 They turned out pretty funky!

The adorable moss/ivy Easter bunny my mother-in-law gave me!

 Later that evening we attended St. Leo’s Easter Vigil

And of course, we watched the Masters allll weekend long. How adorable is Bubba Watson?!

How was your Easter?!
