'Easter Parade'. I've been meaning to see it, oh for the past two decades or so. You wouldn't think it would be so hard to accomplish and yet, this film has eluded me. I'm going to attempt (again) to watch it. Maybe if I have a hot cross bun in each hand, I'll be lucky! Oh and guess what else. I totally was going to buy a pack of jelly beans for myself. And then I put them back. And I didn't buy any. I DEEPLY REGRET THAT CHOICE. Now I'll have to steal from my daughter and take some out of her Easter basket.
Did you all see my Crabtree & Evelyn wish list earlier in the week? To add to that, how pretty is this? What an amazing Mother's Day gift it would be!
Some really cute DIY Easter basket goodies for kiddos.

Cool Book of the Week: 'The Ordinary Princess' by M.M. Kaye (author of the adult sweeping novel, 'The Far Pavilions') is the most fun and enchanting book, and have I shown it here before? I don't think so, because I think I was going to do a post about it. Julia and I read this together last year and it's hilarious and charming and sweet. Really fun for a read-aloud! Amethyst Alexandra Augusta Araminta Adelaide Aurelia Anne (Princess Amy) was cursed/blessed (her parents certainly think it's a curse!) by a fairy at birth....to be ordinary.
With freckles, mousey brown hair and snub nose,
Amy spends her days doing as she pleases, living an 'ordinary'
life. She cares more about running through the woods than trying on
fancy clothes as her older sisters do. After her parents decide to marry
her off to whomsoever they can find who might ignore her ordinariness,
Amy runs away to the next kingdom and gets a job as an assistant kitchen
maid. While there, she meets a mysterious friend, who also wants no
part of his alternative life.....
If you've had it up to here with feeble princesses who need rescuing, this book is for you! Witty, charming, sweet, it's one of the best books we read last year. Great for ages 8-11.
Have a LOVELY Easter weekend! Don't make the same mistake I did with the jelly beans.
