Happy Easter! We had the most wonderful Easter weekend! The weather was absolutely gorgeous here and except for church and Lillie's nap times we spent every minute of it outdoors! We played tennis, had Easter egg hunts and spent hours both Saturday and Sunday in Colonial Williamsburg! I am plugging away on my taxes right now and don't have time to write, so this will be just a post full of photos from our weekend.

Also, don't forget to enter our give-away for our Adeliene dress!!!!

So, I had all of these grand Easter decorating ideas and didn't get to any of them!!!!! Arggh! I can't wait to be caught up on all of these wholesale orders so I can actually have some fun doing some other projects for a change. I had seen these beautiful eggs on another blog and was so inspired by them that I went out and got the supplies but never had time to make them. (I will try to find the blog so I can post a link and picture - it was such a cool idea! So elegant!) Anyway, Lillie and I did put about 5 or six nests sprinkled throughout the house and then one of my aunts sent some beautiful egg topiaries and wreath so that helped it feel festive!

UPDATE: I haven't found the blog I originally saw them on, but found these that are really simlar from Tales From An O.C. Cottage. Aren't they gorgeous! Next year I am definitely going to make some!!!!!! (Although I don't think mine will ever turn out this beautiful!)

Here is one of several little nests we put throughout the house.

I got these cute little hang tags with that last bunch of Dear Lillie hang tags that I ordered from Paper Eclectiques. They have the most beautiful hang tags! I am addicted to them! Lillie and I got the ingredients for cupcakes and some pastel colored sprinkled sugar from Williams-Sonoma so we could put them at each place setting, but didn't get to that either!

Lillabel at the park on Saturday! My mom made this tutu for her and there were some bunny ears that went with it! She looked so cute!
And here she is running down the streets of Colonial Williamsburg later in the day.

Here are a few pictures from Lillie's Easter Egg hunt this afternoon!

Ahhhhhh - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE living in Williamsburg!
