Easter Weekend Festivities! Crunchy Peanut Butter Eggs Recipe

TGIF...the Holiday Weekend has arrived!

I don't know about you, but I love springtime and all of the holidays that go with it. I was busy all week making homemade chocolate eggs with peanut butter and buttercream filling. I then painted around 100 eggs and stuffed around 100 plastic eggs for the annual Easter Egg Hunt for Saturday. I love seeing the children run after them, its so much fun!

I have been busy planning my Holiday Menu as I am expecting 11 guests for Easter Dinner on Sunday so this weekend will be filled with some good food! I enjoy all the preparations for the Holidays, I just hate the clean up afterwards so I always assign that job duty to my husband. Yes he moans and groans but its his job since I do everything else :)

I have been having a hard time getting Easter Egg dye off my fingers and hands this week so I am in desperate need of a manicure and I guess while I am at it, a pedicure would be nice too.
