Happy Easter!

We’ve just gotten back from my in-laws’ house after eating a delicious lunch of ham, potatoes, broccoli, rolls, strawberries, apple slab (much tastier than it sounds), and eclair torte (so yummy!). We then laid around all afternoon, watched golf and NCAA basketball (I had Georgetown playing Wisconsin in the Sweet 16, but I’m much happier with our odds against Davidson!), dozed, and tried to ignore all of the calories we consumed. Not to mention all of the candy I gorged on since I had given up candy for Lent (I’m not even Catholic!!!). It was a pretty good day.

I’m also trying to forget what I ate last night at my aunt and uncle’s house-lasagna (not a typical Easter meal, but soooooo good!), garlic bread (the best I’ve ever had!), salad, strawberry shortcake and French Silk pie. It hasn’t been a great weekend for me, in terms of my eating habits. And I’m starting to notice it. What happened to my metabolism?

Anyway, I saw the following list posted at work last week, and I thought it was cute. Here it is:

“All I Need to Learn About Life I Learned from the Easter Bunny”

  • Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
  • Walk softly and carry a big carrot.
  • Everyone needs a friend who is all ears.
  • There is no such thing as too much candy. (I may dispute that one, based on the belly ache I have right now!)
  • All work and no play makes you a basket case.
  • A cute little tail attracts a lot of attention.
  • Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day.
  • Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.
  • Some body parts should be floppy.
  • Keep your paws off other people’s jellybeans.
  • Good things come in small sugar coated packages. (like my kids after eating M&Ms and jellybeans!)
  • The grass is greener in someone else’s basket.
  • An Easter bonnet can cover the wildest hare.
  • To show your true colors, you have to come out of the shell.
  • The best things in life are still sweet and gooey.

Happy Easter everyone!
