Happy Easter everyone! I hope y’all will forgive me for not posting last week, but I was enjoying a very rare weekend with the entire Cookie family. More on that later.
First, let’s take a look back at this week’s eats so you’re all caught up and ready for next week’s grubbing.
Let’s review, shall we?
1. Easter Lemon Poke Cake
2. 34 Best Easter Recipes
3. Readers’ Choice Wednesday: Avocado & a Egg Double Cheese Flatbread
4. Smart Cookie Shopping 26: Easter Eggs, Ravioli, & More
Which of my Easter recipes will you be whipping up today? I’m joining My BF and his family for a feast that will include an indulgent Chocolate Peanut Butter Poke Cake. Stop in Monday for that recipe!
Let’s talk about someone who doesn’t have any Easter spirit: the person who abandoned three perfectly good bags of Cadbury Mini Eggs in the middle of the grocery store. What kind of monster are you? Everyone knows those things are made with crack and irresistible.
You’ll get to hear more about this weekend’s festivities in next week’s edition of the Weekender, but let’s talk more about why I held out on you guys last weekend.
For the first time in over a year, my mom, dad, sister and fiancé were all up here at once. They came to attend my college’s annual RSI awards, which are held each spring to honor student accomplishments in the Public Relations/Journalism department (how many of you remembered I was a PR major?).
Since I’m a senior, these were my last RSI Awards, so it was an extra special event for me. If you were curious, I received the Outstanding Senior Award and the Faculty Award, which recognizes the upperclassman with the highest GPA.

It meant a lot to have all the people I care about there with me.
The only way the ceremony could’ve been better is if I was allowed to bring my babies! They’ve been getting into a lot of trouble this week, but what else is new?
Little Miss Mina sits in the sink with me every morning while I’m getting ready, so I decided to take a photo every day for a month to prove it. These are our first three days of girl time.
On a less adorable note, I dislocated my toe this week. I didn’t even do anything cool; I was play-fighting with my BF, and he pretended to go for my legs, so I leap-frogged over him. It would’ve been really epic except for the fact that I landed like an uncoordinated elephant and smashed my toes in unnatural directions.
It’s feeling much better now though, and the bruising has gone down considerably. I know, I’m falling apart, right?
A few states away, Reesy wasn’t doing so hot this week either. She had four teeth pulled, and she had to be put into the cone of shame so she wouldn’t bite her pain patch. Don’t worry; she’s doing much better now.
Speaking of animals wearing ridiculous things, who wants to guess how Mr. Poe got stuck in my headband? I still don’t know.
He sure does love a good grocery bag!
Before I head out, tell me what you guys want to see in this week’s Readers’ Choice Wednesday! What are you guys craving?
That’s it for now. Don’t forget to join me tomorrow for some cake!
