Happy Easter!

Look who came to visit!

My best friend, Christie! Christie lives in Charleston and tonight after dinner we are headed back up that way. I’m staying with her for a couple nights before I head back to California on Wednesday.

We’ve had a blast in Savannah today! We ate lunch at a great little cafe, strolled around and took a carriage ride. The weather is GORGEOUS!
I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich for lunch with the dressing on the side…

And then we stopped at the candy store (naturally) so I could hunt down my favorite childhood candy of cinnamon bears!

One big happy family!

Off to go make an Easter cocktail before our super early “dinner”. My mom is making homemade fried chicken, blue cheese macaroni and cabbage slaw….and Christie made a gorgeous fruit tart for dessert.
See you in Charleston!

So much fun! Nothing better than true spring weather for Easter — it’s meant to be a time of renewal and fresh flowers symbolize that so clearly.

Happy Easter! What an attractive and sweet family you have. You are missing an incredible storm here in NorCal-it’s been pouring cats and dogs since about 11:00 am…so I am very jealous of your lovely southern weather! And your dinner sounds fabulous…Blue Cheese Macaroni! you must share that recipe!

You had my mouth water at Blue cheese macaroni, sounds amazing! You’re making me so jealous with the beautiful weather and the opportunity to wear the cute sumemer clothes- it’s making me want to venture down to Georgia sometime haha Ever considered writing for tourist sites? I’m sure you could make a decent living out of it ;)

First, happy Easter!
Second, it looks like you’re still rocking the vegas hair or some variation. Would you mind telling us how you do it? Is it just curling some strands? I love the full bodied look of it, its exactly what I want my hair to do. I know you are crazy busy but if you ever get a chance to drop a little advice on this it would be amazing!!

Rebecca @ How the Cookies Crumble April 5, 2010 at 9:54 am

Mmmm! I love cinnamon bears too! I could never find them when I lived on the east coast and would have my sister send them to me from the west coast! Hope you had a great easter!
