i feel like a terrible mother, but easter this year is going to be bypassed. normally, i go over the top celebrating holidays, however minuscule they may seem. normally, i take dreydan to the dollar store and let him splurge on decorations for his room. then all the days leading up to the holiday we bake in the kitchen making themed treats ready to munch for the days ahead. we do holiday related activities. we watch holiday related movies/shows etc.. and then on the day, i cook a holiday related themed dinner. ie: corned beef & cabbage for st. paddy's.
but being in another country where our holidays are not so wildly celebrated and revered, it's easy to forget. especially by a child. last year we were here for halloween, and that was so hard! i'm in love with everything halloween & there was nothing here to indicate the slightest idea that it was october. this year, we got here beginning of march so we missed st. patrick's day. if it weren't for instagram i would've totally forgotten all about it. sooo easter celebrations won't be happening. translation: the easter bunny won't make it to us. but shhh.. dreydan will never know. we've got him distracted with all sorts of other things.
besides all of that rubbish, i've put together an easter wishlist of must-haves. obviously i won't be needing or getting any of them this year, but hey, a girl can virtual window shop, right?
one. dying easter eggs is messy with kids. especially my boy. so this apron from pottery barn would be perfect. and not just for dying eggs, but all activities all year long.
two. the sweetest floral romper from holley and sage. i seriously drool over the stuff in their shop.
three. every easter basket needs a book. 'marshmallow' found here is great for boys & girls.
four. throwing this on over your babes little dress after the hunt, pictures, church etc.. keeps the easter spirit just a little longer. from purllamb. another shop that i can't get enough of.
five. pamplemousse teething ring. such a cute shop for natural handmade teething rings! another easter basket must-have.
six. throw this short sleeve button up from crewcuts on with a pair of colored shorts & you have the most handsome dude around.
seven. easter bunny bundle masks from opposite of far. drey loves masks & dressing up, so every year we find themed masks for every holiday. he's obsessed.
eight. wooden toys are so much fun to have. so when i found this shop on etsy, i drooled and 'favorited' pretty much everything. this wooden toy bowling set from cake in the morn is an easter basket need.
nine. another pottery barn find, because pottery barn rocks. little plush animal rattles found here.
i hope you love this little compilation of easter basket yummies as much as i do.
i'll see you next year, easter bunny.
