How to Do Easter Wrong









Oh Easter, I love you. Dressing in pastels, eating pastel colored candies, wearing pastel colored nail polish- what could be better, right? And of course, the best part of all, is that we get to celebrate the Savior and His resurrection.

However, with Easter falling in March, this month has been a little crazy for us. We've had Lily's birthday, John's birthday, and Easter one after the other. So I wasn't completely on top of my Easter game.

So now I feel like an expert qualified to provide tip on how to do Easter wrong:


  1. Remember that it's going to be Easter two to three days before Easter weekend. Internally freak out.
  2. Due to tip 1, fail to put up any Easter themed decor.
  3. Wait until Saturday to do your Easter shopping. Buy whatever is left at the store. But buy absolutely everything. Because somehow you are going to fit every Easter themed activity into one single day- egg hunts, cookie decorating, egg dying. 
  4. Spend the night before Easter Sunday preparing your lesson for church. Take way more time than you intended and then realize, at 1 o'clock, that you haven't yet filled or hidden Easter eggs for your kids. 
  5. Chastise yourself for being such a procrastinator.
  6. Be constantly woken up throughout the night by a congested, feverish three-year-old who can't stop coughing. 
  7. Wake up too late and mentally prepare for the mad rush to get ready for church on time. Resign yourself to the fact that there will be minimal makeup and no curling of hair involved.
  8. Dress your girls in the cutest little Easter dresses of all time. Take a moment to bask in their cuteness.
  9. Fail to make it to church on time.
  10. Enjoy/survive the next three hours at church.
  11. Return home, thoroughly exhausted, and start dinner prep.
  12. While one-year-old is sleeping, prepare Easter baskets and fill and hide Easter eggs. Distract three-year-old with youtube. Non-educational, silly, youtube videos. Not winning any mother-of-the-year awards today.
  13. While distracted by cooking, allow three-year-old to find her Easter basket early. Tell her she has to wait until her sister wakes up
  14. Give baskets and do Easter egg hunt.
  15. Get dinner in the oven.
  16. Sigh as you realize that dinner won't be ready until 7. 
  17. Binge on chocolate to tide you over (actually, do this step all throughout the day.)
  18. Take outfit pics even though you're exhausted and have to get everyone redressed in their church outfits.
  19. Eat dinner. Well you and your husband eat the dinner you prepared, while your kids reject it and instead eat quesadillas.
  20. Realize that you never dyed Easter eggs or decorated cookies. Decide to do that tomorrow... or never.
  21. Bonus: Constantly catch yourself almost ruining the magic of the Easter bunny.

How was your Easter? Hopefully it went a little smoother than mine did!

  4. I think we often put too much pressure on ourselves (because of what we think "everyone" else is doing) to do holidays a certain way, but I think the best memories are often in the imperfections. I'm sure you'll look back at this post sometime a few years down the road and just laugh. At least, that's the kind of grace I'm giving myself since I've done basically no special holiday things since my baby was born, lol...

  8. Easter, St. Patty's day, my nephew's 1st birthday... March was crazy for us too. Not to mention I didn't even decorate because I felt like there wasn't enough time between St Patty's day and Easter. haha Oh well. Instead I just did Spring decorations. That works, right? (;
