Throwback Thursday: Easter Pinned!

Happy almost Easter Ya'll!!  Today's Throwback Thursday post is the Easter Pinned Edition!  Is it ok to voice that fact that I really don't like Easter in March!?!?  My St. Patrick's Day decorations weren't up long enough!  HAHAHA!!
But since I'm still dreaming about the Resurrection cookies I ate yesterday and reflecting on these next few holiest of days in our church calendar, I thought I throw it back to some Easter faves!!  Enjoy!!


I wanted to get a post like this up and going before St. Patrick's Day but I never got around to it unfortunately.  So I thought I'd try again for Easter.  With Social Media, I go in spurts.  When I first got a Pinterest, I pinned all the time.  I've recently started pinning lots again, so I thought I'd share some of the things I'm loving for Easter!!

During Friendsgiving, I did some decorating.  I found a really fun subway art and put it in an 8x10 frame and placed it in my TV stand, that was pretty much empty, since my TV went up on the wall. I've kept this going since Thanksgiving and now change it for each month/holiday!  I found this one for Easter and put it in the frame.  I like that it marries both the religious and fun!

Our family has lots of fun coloring hard-boiled eggs this time of year!  And I love eating them.  They're really just a great snack, that most times than not, I just eat like an apple!  HA!!  I know this is weird, but I actually had to look up how to make hard-boiled eggs!  Sure, I knew to put them in the cold water and boil them, but I wasn't sure of specifics, so naturally, I searched Pinterest!  And I found this!  And I gotta tell you...they come out pretty damn perfect!!  Easy to peel, not weird ring around the yolk, and super yum!!  I liked her story too!  That was totally me!!

 I've also been pinning activities for my kiddos to do this Holy Week.  Teaching in Catholic School, I really like The Catholic Toolbox website/blog and have used this site's Easter Triduum resources.  During Holy Week, I like reading the kids The Tale of Three Trees in Library and use resources I've found on this site as checkout assignments for the kids.  This is one of my all-time favorite books. Some read it during Christmas, but I like to read it during Easter.  I feel that it's a good way to renew and reinforce our faith in God.

Yesterday at school one of the first grade teachers brought in Resurrection cookies for her class and shared some with me.  I had heard about them before but had never tried one!  She told me they were her own recipe.  She used chocolate chips and marshmallow.  I came home and tried to find it.  I couldn't find a recipe similar to hers.  Mostly everything I found on Pinterest included the pecans and vinegar (nut allergies in our school probably prevented her from following the exact recipe).  I pinned this for the story.  Yummy treats and a great way to share the story of Jesus with the kids!


Acually I've pinned a bunch of recipes!  I am off Thursday and Friday so, I'm going to make something to bring to Easter Sunday dinner!!

These are just a few of the things I've pinned lately! You can follow me on Pinterest {here}!

  1. I just heard about Resurrection cookies from Beth and Our Pretty Little Girls. Interesting...will have to look more into this.

  2. Have to look for that book on Amazon, pinned the how-to for boiling eggs. Would be a great procedural text for kids this time of year. I was doing the first part right, but having them boil for ten minutes not sit in the boiling water for ten minutes as it cools. Love your framed subway art. Great idea. Kinda like you, too!


Thanks so much for taking the time to post comments! They make me smile so big!
