Easter Wrap-Up and My Big Belly

Easter was gorgeous here is PA, so we spent as much time outside as we could, with an egg hunt

and chocolates, of course, which S happily shared.

My dyed brown eggs came out ok, much deeper colors than on white eggs. 
Though I think I used too much vinegar, which seemed to make the dye flake off.  Oh well, the eggs were still perfectly cooked, and were delicious on our Easter dinner, a Nicoise Salad with Salmon.
What did you have for dinner?  I hope it was as tasty as ours.

In other world news, I'm getting huge!
Here I am filling holes in the walls of the nursery.  This belly is out of control, as is my hunger.  We spent some of the weekend organizing, donating, and trying to clear things out for the baby.  Our attic looks spectacular, and I feel so much more organized about baby things.

I'll also share a little secret: this month I'll be working with Parents.com and Chase Financial with a makeover of the nursery. I'm so excited, and ready to start working, or more accurately, ready to start directing others to start working (like friends and family).  You know, my belly is just too big and all for all that bending!  Stay tuned for more on the nursery project this May.

And if you have a moment and don't mind clicking over to Belli Beautiful, I entered that huge belly in a photo contest and hope to win some pampering goodies. It just takes one click to vote, no signing up or anything.  My belly thanks you for your support!


  1. oh chocolate! my favorite!!!

    and I love the belly shot! It's getting closer!

  2. I love the colors of the dyed brown eggs. That salad looks delish! Mmm!

    What a great opportunity you have for the nursery! And yes, you definitely are at the point where you can delegate the hard work :) Time to relax!

  3. Your salad looks delicious! Yay! I'm glad Easter was sunny and fun for you, and that the nursery is coming along.

    Hooray for growing tummies! I have yet to compare my belly this pregnancy to my belly last pregnancy. I wonder if it's bigger, like most women experience. I think I compare my current belly to that 9 month belly I had at the end, and continue to feel "small." ;)

  4. Yes, I'd say that this baby has officially popped! You look adorable...glorious and glowing. All that a joyfully expecting Mama should be! :)

  5. Your eggs look lovely! I don't know how much vinegar you put, normally I put 2 soup spoons to 200 ml of water. Anyway, I am glad Easter is over because my belly was on the verge of becoming like yours though I am not pregnant :))

    Just voted for you!

  6. Love the way your eggs look, almost vintage! I'm excited to see what you do with the nursety!

    I voted!

  7. That salmon meal looks absolutely delicious. Glad you had a wonderful Easter.

  8. Oh, I remeber how beautiful spring was in PA. So lovely.

  10. Aw, it looks like you all had a very wonderful, not to mention beautiful Easter holiday! I'd definitely take advantage of beautiful weather if we ever had any! Lol

    And look at YOU Mrs. Mommy to be :D You're absolutely glowing! A nursery makeover is so EXCITING! I can't wait to see it in action :)
