Overdosed on Easter update: It’s amazing what a good night’s sleep can do for you. I am BACK people and ready to share the pics from this weekend’s events.

It took my forever to find mine because the bunny was very sneaky and opened up one of my registry gifts that came to my parents’ house, placed it inside, and then proceeded to re-seal it with tape. Pretty good one, huh?
