Easter Breakfast

Easter Weekend Egg-stravaganza!

Hey friends,

How was your weekend? Was yours an egg filled Eggstravaganza?! Okay, bad jokes aside, we did actually have an Easter egg filled weekend. And it felt like it flew by in an instant! Seriously, I think this Instagram picture accurately describes it.

Instagram fun

I’m linking up with Erin and Katie to share the details.

You know Friday is going to be a good day when your almond butter makes a heart on your single serving pancake. Awww, almond butter! I love you too!

And since it was good Friday, John got to come to my BODYPUMP class again! The family that sweats together smells stays together.

Mommy, Daddy, and Matilda

After a much needed nap (Matilda’s, not mine, unfortunately), we decorated some Easter eggs. Peter Cottontail had to assist us in the process.

And after Matilda went to bed, John and I did a little cocktail experimenting to try to re-create The Matilda that I had at the Peter Kern Library last weekend.

Our version was not quite as good…

Saturday we had an Easter egg hunt in our back yard with our nieces Aurora and Anastasia AKA the fun older cousins!

Sunday morning I wanted to make something special for Easter breakfast, so I did a little experimenting and came up with the vegan and grain-free cinnamon rolls! Here’s hoping I get my act together enough to share it with you guys soon!

Matilda opened her Easter basket while we waited for the cinnamon rolls to bake.

The Beast was clearly the best part. Even more so than this ridiculously hard to find allergy-free chocolate sheep. Seriously, why are allergy friendly chocolates so hard to find?!?!?!

Belle and The Beast had to watch us eat breakfast. Not at all creepy, right?

At least the cinnamon rolls turned out well!

After breakfast, we went on a quick walk around the neighborhood. I love living in East Tennessee this time of year!



And a few hours later, we headed over to John’s parents house for Easter part 2.

There was more family, more fun, more bunnies, and more eggs.

We were very excited!


More egg huntin’!

There was MONEY in some of those eggs!!!


And the day ended on a sweet note with some delicious chocolate cake!


It always feels like holiday weekends pass in a blur! 

What about you?

How was your weekend?

  1. I missed out on egg hunts this year! We didn’t get to see our families this week due to a tight schedule, but we still enjoyed ourselves.
    You were brave to try to create cinnamon rolls on your own! I am not as brave when it comes to baking thing like that- I bet yours were yummy.
    Also, that instagram screen shot is too real :O

  2. Easter as a child is so fun. My child self is crazy jealous of the Beast doll (he totally would have sat at my table, too), but I do remember getting some good chocolate egg loot. Your family chooses the most beautiful, classic names. I’m glad you had a lovely, fun weekend Heather – and hope it continues through the week!

  3. I’m sitting here starving looking at all the pictures of your amazing food. I love Matilda’s piggytails! SO CUTE. Love all the photos of you guys having fun. We had an egg hunt on Friday, and the weather was horrible here so I ended up just hiding the eggs inside the house. The cat keeps finding them!

  4. What a fabulous Easter weekend you had! I love the pictures and the idea of a cocktail named Matilda:) We spent Sunday with my in laws, and watched my 5 year old niece hunt for eggs. It was fun and made me feel very thoughtful about our future Easter weekends..
