Pink, Purple, Yellow, Oh My! ::Spring Time::

Now that Valentine's Day is over with its time to think about spring time!
And when I think of spring I totally think of light pinks, purples, yellows, aqua.
Ya know the fun colors of life and springy time.

What also screams spring to me is Easter decor and yummies.
To me, Easter candy is da bomb.
I am totally not a peeps girl but I am a mini cadbury eggs girl.
That hard candy coating mixed with that delicious chocolate gets me every time.

I ran across this fun Springy/Easter treat on where else but the Pinterest.

Its called Bunny Bait.
Look how amazing it looks.

Popcorn and chocolate.
This screams Cher.
This was made for me.
And for bunnies I guess...ya know because its called bunny bait and all.
But I guess if the parents are the Easter bunnies then is for us!

Here is the recipe from

Bunny Bait
1 bag popcorn, popped (I used Tender White)
6 oz. white chocolate candy coating
1 bag Easter M&Ms
pretzel sticks, broken into small pieces
colorful sprinkles, if desired

Place the popped popcorn in a large bowl with the broken up pretzels and M&Ms. Heat the candy coating in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each time, until melted and smooth.
Drizzle the candy coating over the popcorn mixture and stir to coat. The pretzels and M&Ms will sink to the bottom, so make sure to get those stirred in and coated with the rest of the popcorn.
Spread out on a large piece of wax paper, top with a few sprinkles (if desired) and let cool. Break into pieces and serve in a large bowl.
Recipe source: slightly adapted from Bake at 350, originally from This Blessed Nest

I can't wait to put some of this into Colby's Easter basket.
He is going to love it!!
Hope I don't eat it all and some actually makes it into the basket.

Since I have had spring time on the mind I decided to share some of my Easter decor ideas with you...

Oh, you know these adorable Easter printables from How Does She?
will be going up on our gallery wall.
And well, all over the house.
I love the color of these.
So fun!

I am also on a mission to find some really fun bunting.
These were found via Heidi Adnum's adorable Etsy store.

And I as I love this idea, lets get real, this would not fair well in our house.
All that beautiful candy would be gone faster than you can say screaming toddler.
And I think my husband would be the first at it, not my toddler.

And you cant let a holiday go by without a pretty wreath.
I am making this and can not wait to show you the tutorial on it.
It is so fun!!!
Now all I gotta do is paint my front door purple.
What do you think hubs??
