hello weekend!


I hope your weekend is as satisfying as this trip to our favorite neighborhood coffeeshop was.




Have you seen National Geographic's story Inside the Presidency? Alexi pointed it out to me; absolutely fascinating.

I am doing an exchange for Easter with my blogging friend Elaine, who lives in England. I'd love to hear your suggestions in the comments about American Easter treats to send her two little ones. Thanks!

For Easter I suggest colorful jelly beans xo

i think pic #1 is my fave pic from you EVER :-)

Crystal said...

Those awful yellow marshmallow chicks...what are they called? Peeps? I know so many people that love them but I just can't bring myself to eat one. I think they are very American Easter though. Cadberry Eggs as well.

I agree with Heidi, lovely picture, dreamy really.
As for typical American easter treats?
Malted speckled eggs and colorful plastic eggs with a bit of money inside are at every Easter hunt at our house!

Vanessa said...

I love the first picture. The look on your son's face is very familiar to me :-) Mmmm... donuts.

Coffee with Cathy said...

Thanks for bringing us along to the coffee shop with y'all, Lecia. Wonderful!

Katee said...

The doughnut w/pink frosting looks so yummy!

Debra said...

I have to agree with the others- that first one. Magical! As if he was saying~ "I can anything I want???"...
Candy coated Hershey Eggs- my all time faves- and how American-Hershey!

That first picture ROCKS!! His face in the reflections...It's a perfectly captured moment in time.

And now...I'm suddenly craving doughnuts and coffee. ;-)

Frau said...

My favorite are peeps and the malted milk balls. They have Jelly belly all over Germany so probably in England too. But other then chocolate and gummies the candy is nothing like USA.

Ivy Lane said...

Lecia, your photos are amazing. I love how you captured your son's reflection in the first picture. He is really eyeing up those goodies with serious intent!

mmmm...for Easter... I would do an assortment of candies and treats in little Easter baskets...(do they do Easter baskets in England? if not, then definitely include the baskets as part of the exchange)

Have a great weekend!

Paige said...

What lovely pics - I'd suggest Peeps, too, even though I never eat 'em! Have a great weekend!

Debbie said...

those lucky boys!!!!

Becky said...

Looks like a delicious weekend.

And as for Easter baskets, it wouldn't be Easter without good old Silly Putty.

My girls love their trips to coffee shops, too! Gorgeous pictures - as usual - and an interesting question. Peeps, jelly beans and a chocolate bunny are the basic requirements of our Easter baskets. For non-edibles, I love to throw in those little pipe cleaner chicks, figurines of bunnies/eggs/chicks/something Eastery, and art supplies. Our Easter baskets are always LOADED with art supplies.

Thank you everyone! I must say, that first picture is the one I'm most proud of taking - ever. Thank you so much for all of the great ideas for the Easter exchange!
