I, for one, am completely no longer geared up for Easter. no longer that it takes tons getting ready for…but for a few motive, this year I’m feeling mainly unprepared. I’m now not positive if it’s because it falls so early or  just because I’m in the back of in life in popular…however regardless of the purpose, here we're. four days and counting.

Don’t fear….i have a plan. these days is the day for all matters Easter! sweet, baskets, decorations, the works. after which I want to significantly tackle my mile-lengthy to do listing (which may or won't encompass registering Nora for kindergarten, something I’m pretty positive i was speculated to do months ago).

I needed a recipe that was lovable but easy. And manifestly scrumptious. those little cups are all 3! With a sugar cookie base, candy/tart lemon buttercream, and a few simple Easter chocolates, they’re sure to be the hit of any Easter party. without making you loopy. due to the fact I’m guessing I’m now not the only one that’s underprepared, overwhelmed, and behind in lifestyles in standard. let’s no longer add to the loopy, mmmkay? glad four days till Easter!
