I totally dropped the ball on Easter

Time for another round of mommy confessions. This time, I have to confess that I haven't even given a second thought to Easter until like right now. I think I've had a mental block that it's coming up, and I blame the stupid &@#!% cold weather. To me, Easter=Spring, and it most definitely doesn't feel like spring here in central NC. This time last year, my daffodils were in bloom and we were rocking the t-shirts (thanks, Timehop app for rubbing it in, ha!). At least we don't have snow like so many others, but this is not Easter weather.

So this is where I start to freak out. I don't have a single thing for the baskets, haven't stuffed plastic eggs for Lorelai's party at school this week, haven't bought dye or even planned any time to decorate eggs, haven't thought up clues for the annual Easter morning egg treasure hunt...Oh my. And honestly, my work schedule is so busy this week I'm not sure if I'll have time to run out and shop. I really don't know what I'm going to do and I'm so mad at myself for not planning ahead.

And we literally just now (as I'm typing--Adam's on the phone) figured out who's hosting dinner. Thankfully, Adam's parents volunteered this year because as much as I loved having it at our house last year, right now our house is a total sty and our yard is a complete overgrown mess with not a flower in sight. So bad.

Andplusalso? Which dress am I going to choose for Lorelai to wear? Gah!

If only this were my biggest dilemma right now... Sigh. But at least we already have a dress for her, thanks to hand-me-downs from my sister!


I need to seriously get my butt in gear. Not cool, Becky. This is one of the holidays for the memory books (in my mind) so I want to make it special and memorable with lovely traditions and good family memories.


Linking up with Heather and Megan:

  1. I hear ya! I do this with all holidays. I have plans in my head months ahead, then just never execute them!

  3. I love the blue dress! :)

    But you are definitely not the only one - I keep thinking I have more time for Easter and every time I end up remembering - OH CRAP, no I don't it's THIS Sunday!! lol. I bought some plastic eggs at Target... and that's about as far as I got. And both boys are having Easter parties at school, so I have to buy stuff for that too as well as their baskets and we're doing 2 egg hunts... oy vey. I'm tired just thinking of everything I need to do. :(

    All of that to say - don't feel bad! I think it happens to the best of us! :) hugs!

  4. You're not alone. I just got Boomer's dress last week, and I haven't bought a thing for her basket. Bad mommy over here. Thankfully we don't really do dinner, outside of the usual after church lunch with my mom. Very low key!

    1. Low key sounds so nice, that's totally right up my alley. Have a nice Easter!

  5. Ahhhh this is so me! I just bought some Easter basket goodies two days ago, and that's all I've gotten so far. And if I'm being honest, probably all I will get anyway.

    My vote is for the pink dress! It's a tough call - they're both so adorable!!!!

    1. On the plus side for you, Benjamin is still so young that he doesn't know any better, so you're good to go! I think I made a mistake by setting the bar so high for myself--now my boys know what to expect and what to ask for, lol!

  6. I hear you on the weather and here in NY it has been downright cold. Seriously, yesterday it didn't even crack 50 degrees. Needs to warm up. This is why I like when Easter falls in April, because at least you have a chance for nicer weather! Those dresses are adorable by the way. Stopping by from Raising Imperfections!!

    1. Agreed--if Easter had been this weekend instead, it would have been perfect because the weather was finally GORGEOUS! I hope it warms up for you soon! (And stays warm down here for us!)

  7. I do the same thing for pretty much every holiday. Plan it in my head and do nothing until the last minute. Super cute dresses!!
