a celebration

J took me to the Schnef farms dinner in the orchard for my celebratory dinner after I graduated with my Masters from ASU..

the night began with a hay ride out to the orchards to pick the first peaches of the season...
so fun..

A James Beard Award winning chef then cooked a four course meal, which we enjoyed in the middle of the  orchard... truly a unique and delicious experience...

proud of myself..

hope everyone had a nice Easter..
We had a fantastic one..
We did cornis game hens on the grill..homemade mac and cheese, roasted carrots, deviled eggs, and I made carrot cake from scratch and for the first time ever Italian Easter bread..
I was pretty proud of the carrot cake and bread..
Luke said an amazing blessing which inculded thanking Jesus for dying on the cross for our sins...
Then the kids had fun painting easter eggs and we did a glow in the dark easter egg hunt that ended up being the big event of the evening, the kids had a blast..

have a good Monday!

turns out I am having an impromptu easter egg hunt Sat night..
and I couldn't be excited to spend time with family and friends...
so I am scrambling to get a menu and everything together.. I have found some fantastic ideas on different blogs... on one pretty thing she linked to a fantastic garland.. can't remember the blog name.. (I will site if anyone knows,, please leave in the comments)
She used a hole punch but I used fun scissors I had already.... and twine instead of string..

literally took 1/2 hour and I had everything already... I think it turned out super cute...
sorry about the instagram photos.. I am so lazy now..I didnt grab my good camera..
stay tuned for more party decorating pics!
