Easter Plans

Lil Love Bird's first Easter 2011
I am so excited for Easter this year as it's our first altogether and just us as a little family! 

Mr. Love Bird is off Friday so we're excited for a long weekend; here's what we have to look forward to:

  • Easter mid-morning picnic at Lincoln Park with our local moms' group

  • Easter egg hunt at Van Vorst park (it's divided by age group and I'm excited to see Nia compete in the under 2 group!) - I'll be filling eggs with mini bunny graham crackers as our donated contribution!
 Nia has been crying to open these all week!
  • That night a good friend of mine is having her bachelorette party. I won't be able to stay out the entire night due to the holiday but will be going to dinner with a few ladies in celebration at Rosa Mexicano - they have AWESOME guacamole (am I the only one who calls it Rosa Mexicana???)

  • I'm making America's Test Kitchen's stuffed French toast (I add strawberry jam to the cinammon and sugar cream cheese filling) and bacon (it's nitrate free which I have an upcoming post about some changes we've made to our eating habits thanks to Forks Over Knives)
  • Our church is having 2 services added to their regular 3 so we'll be able to attend church at 2:30p.m.

  • After church we'll come home, change out of our clothes and take a little rest before heading to an early dinner at our favorite local Italian restaurant - they're having a special Easter menu
It's going to be a fun weekend full of great weather and yummy food!

What are your Easter plans? 

P.S. You can see here and here how we spent Easter 2010 and 2011, respectively!
