The hot get hotter...

Like Bradley Cooper needed to be any more attractive. Those eyes, the scruff, the smile. Now he speaks French. For some reason, I love him even more.

What to do with leftover Easter candy

I bought way too much candy for my Easter baskets. I gave some away in Sunday School but I still had a ton left. I have too much of a sweet tooth to have candy in my house. I can hide it in cupboards, but "out of sight, out of mind" doesn't always work. Here is a great idea for what to do with leftover candy from any holiday.

Super easy. Made it tonight and sent it with the bf to take to work, far away from my sweet tooth.

Easter idea for your man/friend/roommate/parent...

I love doing cheesy things for the holidays. The blogosphere has taken things to a whole new level. I get so many ideas from blogland, take a little from here and there, and come up with something of my own. I think this blog will start to focus on some of these gift-giving ideas or small ways to show someone you love or appreciate them.

For Easter this year, I decided to do a six-day countdown for the bf. I saw different countdown ideas on a few blogs, like here, and here.
I also liked these cute "egg"-spressions/phrases.

I combined these and some other ideas for my own countdown. Each egg had one silly "egg" saying, and a small gift. Some days the gift was a personalized coupon, like homemade dinner of your choice, and some were gift cards - like a $10 card to panda express. Inexpensive, but personal.

Fortunately, he humors my holiday craziness.

This idea could be done without eggs and for other holidays or as a "just because." A little goes a long way.

Easter fun

My last post was April 29, 2010. I was just about to take my last law school final. Somehow it is now April 23, 2011. A lot has changed. A lot hasn't changed.

Since I don't keep any sort of journal, I've been thinking about bringing the blog back. I'm still undecided. As a trial run, I thought I'd blog about how I've celebrated Easter so far.

I love Easter. I don't know if it is the fact that my favorite candy - M&Ms - come in cute pastel colors and egg shapes. Or if it is because I love playing the Easter Bunny to my friends and family.

Anyways, this year I've celebrated by baking and easter basket making. For treats: sugar cookies, chocolate-peanut butter-marshmallow chow mein bird nests with robins eggs, and white chocolate popcorn with easter m&ms.

I found the recipe for the popcorn here; it only takes a few minutes and you can do it for any holiday with holiday-themed candy. Super cute gift for the people you visit teach, etc.

I love making easter baskets for people. I think it is so fun to find a little something personalized, even if it is the person's favorite candy. This year I did baskets for my nephew Mason, my mom and dad, and the bf and his fam. I like to think of something particular the person likes - a small gift card for their favorite store, a big bag of their favorite candy, or for guys even some bottles of powerade. I've discovered the dollar store and Big Lots and all the wonderful inexpensive things you can buy there for gift-giving. Bags of candy and easter eggs for pretty cheap.

I'm always a little sad when Easter comes and goes because there is a little holiday drought in terms of decorating and baking. So I decided to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year. That should hold me through until 4th of July.

Happy Easter.

3 things

1. Have you seen these? As an m&m connoisseur, I can't wait for these things!! In fact, on my last road trip, I was guilty of adding some m&ms to my ziploc bag of mini pretzels. Where are they? When are they in stores? They could easily become a new favorite.

2. My nephew is the cutest thing ever.

3. I am studying for my LAST final EVER!! Monday night, 6 pm. I would say that at 9 pm I may be the happiest girl on earth.

I hate Jillian Michaels. The few times I've watched The Biggest Loser, I've thought she was such a b face. Now I have a love-hate with her. These workouts are the toughest workout dvds I've tried. She is kicking my butt. I do weight training at the gym, but these really push you and work all your muscles. I highly recommend these if you want to switch your gym routine up a bit. You have to mute her and listen to your own music; otherwise, you just might punch your tv.

Sadly, this is all I have to blog about. Back to reading for class tomorrow.

Logan Huntzberger

He's back! As a lawyer in "The Good Wife." I don't know how long this show has been on or much of what it is about, but I like the 3 episodes I've seen. Mostly because it gives me the Logan fix I have been craving the past few years. Why couldn't Rory and Logan just get married and have their own show? FYI - Logan is even sexier in a suit talking about the law.
