It’s my birthday week! Yay! But it is also Easter. I have memories of spring dresses, meals shared on Sundays and togetherness. Last week, while at a gathering with the extended family, I proposed starting Sunday dinners (and movie night). A time when we can all come together and reconnect.
I don’t know about you, but a lot of times I see more of my family on social media than in person. I want to change that. As I look to move into a new home, my intention for that place is to be a refuge for family and friends, a place of gathering. So I figure we might as well start now!

And since it is Easter, I figure why not this weekend. Let the record show that it is also my birthday so I figure killing two birds with one stone was a good move.
Thing is, I haven’t really equipped the house with all of my needs in the kitchen. Which is why this project had perfect timing. Between needing to ensure I had stylish settings (I want to try and theme the dinners in the future based on the movies we will be watching) and realizing while my girl was on spring break this week that we need an overhaul of clothing thanks to the fact that she refuses to stop growing, Kohl’s was the perfect stop for all things needed in the Mamihood!
I found great melamine dinner plates that come in assorted colors, giving my table a pop of flare at a great price. It beats having to have settings for 20 people. I was able to buy a dozen plates in assorted colors to keep the Dominicans happy. I then added an Easter runner and a happy Easter sign that I can display anywhere in the house.
Because the deals were so great and due to the fact that good smelling things call my name, I created this display on my entertainment center. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. My secret here? Using a simple serving tray to hold my candles.
Keeping my child away from the kids clothing section was impossible. And so not only did she score an Easter dress but, the Frog Princess picked up the outfit she’d be wearing to go to the parks today as well as her Easter home outfit which she will change into after church.
My kitchen is ready to roll and so is my child. I no longer have to depend on my one rinky dink cookie cutter to handle all things in the oven thanks to these great Food Network baking sheets.
I think I’m ready for Sunday dinners, y’all.
And guess what? I still had a little money left over to get myself this. Well, I should say for the Frog Princess to get me this…
She was slightly miffed that the video was so short because she had a lot to say about all the clothes! I’m afraid I might have to go back with a professional crew to get her entire spiel. I had such a great time shopping with her.
I’m looking forward to spending my spring en familia and looking to extend that throughout the year.
Are you ready for Easter? Are you ready for spring? Are you headed to Kohl’s to get it together like I did?
