Easter Weekend Happenings

Happy Monday girls! I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter weekend. Riley and I flew back to New Jersey bright and early Thursday morning after five full days of wedding planning and catching up with my family.

While I was at home, I made strawberry shortcake for dessert for my family. It was so good - and I used zested lemon when I was making the whip cream and it was fantastic. Yum!

Corey and I went to dinner with his parents Thursday evening. On Friday, we cleaned the apartment and I did some crafting. We enjoyed a relaxing night at home together. Then, on Saturday we met up with one of our couple friends for a fun dinner out with multiple bottles of wine. I wore this outfit....and boy am I glad that the weather is finally starting to get warm and I can put away the black outfits and pull out my bright colors. 

Sunday, Corey and I woke up bright and early and went on a walk around Hoboken. We took advantage of the only time there ever hasn't been a line at Carlo's and picked up a crumb cake to take with us to Corey's parents' house. We headed over to celebrate Easter with them and enjoy a delicious lunch. I wore my new Lilly Adeline dress. 

Corey's mom gave me the prettiest spring tulips in an Easter basket. I'm loving the pop of spring color in our apartment. The weather was perfect yesterday and I am so happy that spring is almost here in Hoboken. Finally!!!!
