(d.i.y. french easter eggs)

It’s Friday again! Since I’ve started my new job, weekends are, once again, something wonderful to look forward to. I have two birthday parties to attend this weekend. March is such a birthday month (mine!). But let’s talk about the more important events of this holiday. Ok, so there’s Easter, but, sadly, I’m skipping it this year. Just like I skipped our anniversary, valentine’s day, and my birthday, I guess moving is really taking it’s toll on personal celebrations.

But you bet I’m not skipping the Game of Thones Season 3 premier! (Bonus! It’s a combo birthday party/GOT viewing. I have the coolest friends.) How about you? What are you doing to celebrate Easter and/or GOT? Well, whatever you’re doing, here are my weekly recommended links.

How pretty are these ombre tights?

15 bread-less sandwiches for some great gluten-free inspiration.

So many parties, so many opportunities for cake toppers (to buy or d.i.y.).

Banana nutella rolls and loaded twice-baked cauliflower from my new favorite food blogger.

A pretty peacock feather cat toy d.i.y. My cats would go nuts for this.

I’ll have to try this homemade cake release spray. After all, it comes recommended from one of my favorite bakers.

Happy Good Friday and Easter everyone.

p.s. last year’s roundup and more Easter ideas.

I just love the idea of using real eggs instead of plastic ones. Don’t you?

Like these decoupaged eggs filled with jelly beans.

It comes with a tutorial from Say Yes! to Hoboken.

Or this tasty and beautiful egg craft from Not Martha, she shows you how to do them.

They’re a hollow chocolate and cream shell that you can fill with goodies. The best part must be cracking open the egg to expose the chocolate. What a weird experience to crack a real egg and find chocolate inside.

When you’re done you can put them in this cute thing:

It’s a crocheted Easter Basket from the Crunchy Catholic Momma. It comes with a pattern, and this basket looks well worth replicating.

Oh, hey. You’re going to want to check these out.

Homemade Cadbury Creme Eggs. Yep. That about says it all.
