Random spring / Easter

What a beautiful couple of days it has been here in Baltimore.
3 full days of sunshine...  I almost don't know how to act.

Although I still have plenty of spring cleaning to tackle...  I couldn't waste these days inside.
It's supposed to rain tomorrow,  Perfect day for laundry and basement cleaning.

At least now I can scratch Car and Deck off of my cleaning list.
My car was a pigsty!!!! 

I was bird sitting my little buddy Pearl last week while his mother was in Costa Rica.   We did a lot of looking at my list and not a lot of working on it. 

However,  I have my priorities!!   The doll house is clean and ready for spring and summer.  I love all of the plants on the porch.

As you probably already notice,  this is one of those random posts.    I actually already put together 2 future posts this morning ( i'm on a roll)  but I am saving them.  First I wanted to catch up a little bit.
I never got around to making an Easter post and I wanted to toss some photo's in this one.
It was such a nice easter weekend..   We had all of the kids with us on Saturday night to dye eggs.  I made a few treats,  but I was really excited about making the smores bunny dip that I saw on Pinterest .   
The recipe' is as follows.
Use a spray oil to coat baking dish.
Dump in a package of milk chocolate chips.
Drop some peanut butter by the spoonful over the chips.
Top with Peeps and then put the casserole under a broiler for a few minutes .

When I said all of the kids I mean Michelle, Sally and Sally's good friend Mr D.
Along with Paul... this bunch makes me laugh!

Easter Sunday we enjoyed an easy dinner with some of our great friends.
My friend Paula brought a dessert called ambrosia...  Delicious.  I basically ate the whole bowl.
Definitely need to get the recipe.    That guy in the orioles gear,  that's Don..  Paul's brother from another mother aka best friend since high school.    The two of them together is always entertaining!!!!
And that my friends is it.  
Since it's taken me two days just to finish this post...  the weather is back to cold, wet and depressing.
Today I will actually get that laundry and basement cleaned.
Maybe even work on a project while I am down there.
Have a great week everyone!
See you soon.
