Well, I thought I was going to be here sharing some pictures of sun and sand with you today.
If you remember from my Prime Purchases post earlier this month, we were preparing for a long-awaited and much-needed beach vacation.
But, it didn’t happen.
Our bags were packed and sitting by the door, all ready for our 6 am flight. When the alarm went off at 2:30 am for us to get ready to head to the airport, there was a message from the airline saying that our flight had been canceled. 😩
Apparently, most of the United States wanted to go to Florida for Spring Break, because after 5 hours on the phone with Delta, they could find nothing else that would get us to our destination. “All routes are full” we kept hearing.
We tried hard to take our minds off being stuck in Iowa by enjoying some baby time, working on some projects, doing a little antique shopping, and sipping a few cocktails too….
C’est la vie I suppose.
Since we were unexpectedly still in town for St. Patrick’s Day, my mother-in-law made dinner for us and a couple of the kids who also had no spring break plans.
Dinner was delicious, the table was festive and it was fun to relax and spend time with family.
In Case You Missed It…
Speaking of St. Patrick’s Day, here is the St. Patrick’s Day Table I shared this week. It was simple, and pretty. Be sure to pin it for next year’s inspiration.
Now that St. Pat’s Day is over, it’s time to start thinking about Easter. These Mini Egg Cupcakes are an easy way to make beautiful cupcakes without a lot of effort because they begin with a boxed cake mix!
This way, you can spend your energy on creating Easter dinner, and still have a pretty and delicious dessert that doesn’t take hours to prepare.
