Happy Easter everyone! If you don't celebrate Easter, than happy Sunday everyone! I had a very pleasant and relaxing Easter this year. I, of course, wore these bunny ears I got for just $1 all over the house during the entire day! jajaja, my boyfriend would smile every time he looked at me :) ... It's so easy to have fun :)

I spent most of the day making some fun Easter treats! This year I made two types of cupcakes and some coconut chocolates.

I started off with a cupcake design that involved green shredded coconut! jaja, the cupcakes are supposed to look like the interior of Easter baskets (you know, the stringy plastic stuff with the Easter eggs). I thought they looked so cute with the Jelly beans and all! (Recipe is from here)

I also decorated some easy peasy bunny cupcakes with some marshmallow bunny Peeps. These are sooooo easy, I make them for all the holidays :)

Both cupcakes together looked so cute and cheerful! I'm so happy with how they turned out!

I also made some coconut chocolate hummingbird nests. These were just too easy and they taste so darn good! If you like Almond Joys, you are going to LOVE these. I got the recipe from here.

I also received some special Easter treats from the Easter Monkey this year. Yes, the Easter Monkey not the Easter bunny simply because my boyfriend and I call each other monkeys... I dunno why really but it makes me smile :)

My mom also made me some cool signatures for the signature challenge. I love them, thanks mom!

We finished the day off by going to a bookstore and relaxing. It was wonderful to drink some hot coco, eat a warm blueberry scone, and read InStyle magazine... simply wonderful.

  4. I really like the burgundy tights with the black booties and short dress. It looks really fashion. You look super cute with your bunny ears and I love how you enjoy the simple things in life. Going to the bookstore to read and relax sounds like a perfect way to spend the day. I really enjoyed your post today. Big hug!
