Hey peoples - just got back from a 4 mile run with my fabulous Cousin A (we walked and talked more than we ran though). We also went straight from the trail to a Mexican restaurant where margaritas were imbibed so you know - keep that in mind while you read this post.
I am about to get started on a little cooking for the Easter weekend. Am planning on making some cheddar biscuits that I've made a few times before and some chocolate chip cookie dough truffles that I've never made before but are sweet and therefore can't be screwed up too badly - by me anyway - sugar loves me.

And those are the Easter eggs we made and subsequently hid.
One of my favorite pictures of me and my sister and mama. We are such "in the moment" type people that we usually forget to take pictures so I am glad for the few we have together.
One of the whole family.
And me and my sister aka "Seeser!" with our Peter's pottery bunnies. Also - holy shiny T-zone. I swear I own powder and will not let this happen again.
That's all. Happy Easter everybody!
