Countdown...




I can't believe it is almost here..my alarm is set for the morning and I am ready to go. Unfortunately, I was invited to participate in a school trunk show at 8:30 am that I could not turn down, so I will miss some of it..I am secretly hoping that they have televisions brought in so people could watch.

I have not been feeling well this week (which is why I have been MIA) and am now convinced that I have some type of parasite in my stomach. Of course, only I would get the type of parasite that does not cause rampant weight loss. I have not been diagnosed by a professional and I am not a hypochondriac..but I looked up all my symptoms online and this made the most sense. Don't worry, I will get to the doctor soon.



Can't wait for all the festivities tomorrow. How exciting to be able to experience such a global event. I remember waking up so early for Charles and Diana's wedding at my grandparent's house all those years ago. My parents just arrived in Ireland today and am hoping they can score some type of cool souvenir on their trip.



Cheers to William and Kate!!!

This Year's Easter Festivities

My Easter was jam packed yesterday! On my way to lunch with friends, I stopped to see my brother and his family before they went boating. I had already accepted a very generous lunch invitation or I would have jumped in the boat with them. The lunch I was on my way to was a big family affair with tons of cousins and tons of food. The table was filled with yummy Lebanese dishes.




Everyone was very festive..




There was an Easter Egg hunt...


And the desserts came out...



In the afternoon, I ventured down to see Meg and Brett and the kids, who arrived yesterday. Little Ashley was napping when I arrived but when she woke up, she was raring to go..swimming in the pool and running around. Little Elizabeth has gotten so big since I met her in December, she is so cute.





I couldn't wait for Ashley to open my Easter basket and she is so smart, she reached in and immediately grabbed the white KP Designs box. The look on her face was hilarious.

When things were winding down, we had the most decadent gourmet meal prepared by Tef and Saskia..lambchops, pureed parsnips and a delicious salad. Unbelievably, there was still room at the end for a couple of mini Misha's cupcakes..everyone's favorite.

Hope everyone had a fabulous Easter!!!
