Me and the fam in our Easter best!
I hope everyone had a very Hoppy Easter!!! It was a GORGEOUS day here in Georgia- the perfect weather for such a joyous holiday!
I love Easter bc of the obvious commercialized reasons: chocolate hollow bunnies, candy of every sort, plastic egg hunts, marshmallow Peeps, the chance to wear your Sunday best clothes, and of course the famous Easter bunny visits!
My crew after E.B. (easter bunny!) visited them this morning!
But today, the family and I made it to church (it's been awhile since baby Vivian was born to be quite honest!) and I was truly struck by the sermon about the true importance of this sacred day. I won't go on and on about the resurrection day (I am definitely NO preacher by any means), but I certainly have a renewed appreciation for Easter and the true meaning behind it. My husband and I have luckily found a church here in Athens that we LOVE, Athens Church, and if you have any interest in hearing and watching the sermon that we experienced today, you can click on this link here and click on the "Easter Celebration"- I am completely amazed by technology these days by the way!!
Jack so proud of his egg findings!

So these past couple days of the Easter celebrating have been very fun! I just had to share some super cute photos of some events we had this Saturday (egg hunt at our house) and Sunday (getting dolled up for church).

Smoky Eye Palette ($35) for this look- one of my fave eye products that you can create multiple colorful smokey looks from.
For Easter Sunday I ended up working a gold and navy rimmed eye. It was bold and bright! I got the inspiration from my silk dress and its print. The blue was used from the Too Faced palette shown to the right and the gold was from a big Stila palette I got for Christmas.
This was easy. Just applied the orangey-gold color from lash line to right above crease. Then lined
the upper and inner lower lash line with navy blue liner, then smudged it with a matching
blue shadow on top.
This dress is where I got the color scheme idea for my eyes (notice the orange and blues)!
But more importantly, how sweet and beautiful does Miss Viv look in her pastel pink??!!

Poor Viv is taking the poking and prodding from her brother's in stride!
I hope your Easter was wonderful, fun, colorful, and special. But more importantly, that the meaning of the day rang true in your celebrations!!
