Holidaze

Holidays are always fun! People get excited about family traditions, good food, and quality time with loved ones. Or if you are like me you get excited about new outfits and new recipes. Of course, this week it’s all about Easter!

Let’s start with the most important thing: CLOTHES!! Easter is the time to break out your cutest pastel outfit. Of course when I say “break out,”  I mean go shopping because like most girls I never have anything to wear despite my closet full of clothes. My family and I get really into dressing up for the holidays. Typically for Easter we pick a color, and this year it was pale yellow.  I went rogue and starting shopping before my mom told me what the color was. I found a dress that was rose quartz which happens to be a trending color for spring. Luckily, I had a cute pale yellow cardigan, which allowed me to meet the requirements for our family color coordination. And last but certainly not least SHOES! I see shoes as an investment, and I get ridiculed a lot for buying shoes at inappropriate times. When I see shoes I know I’ll wear eventually I do not hesitate because there is no guarantee they will be there when I get back. Then I’ll never forgive myself every time I wear an outfit that those shoes would have been perfect for. I can’t tell you how many times I have patted myself on the back for buying these shoes.

Here is a closer look at my outfit!

No holiday would be complete without trying out a new recipe from Pinterest. This year I saw some really cute Rice Krispy Treats. Even though this is not a new recipe for me, there are so many cute things you can do with Rice Krispy Treats that it never gets old! The actual recipe I found used Peeps instead of marshmallows, but I just used regular marshmallows and food coloring. For those who have never used food coloring when making Rice Krispy Treats I have a few tips, that will make your life a little bit easier.

I always suggest using prep bowls when making Rice Krispies because there is not a lot of time to waste between steps.

  1. Add the drops after the marshmallows are melted, but before you add the Rice Krispies.
  2. If you want pastel colors, just use fewer drops.
  3. If you want bright colors be careful of how much food coloring you add because if you add to much there is a chance that the mixture will seize. The end product will have a glassy consistency. (It will still be cute just not edible)
  4. Since you will be adding the cereal after you add the dye, just know that the color will be slightly more muted than what you may expect.
I ended up only doing three layers because you have to wash every thing between each step.

I hope every one had a wonderful Easter!
