Easter Eggs and Dream Coats

My motto has always been "Better Late Than Never."  Well, usually that isn't my motto, but its gonna be the motto of this post.  Its nearly three days after the fact, but I had such a great weekend that I still think its worth sharing.

Caleb and I weren't able to go home for the holiday so I wanted to make the weekend special.  He doesn't tend to get as carried away with holidays as I do, but he humored me just the same!  :)

I decided that for Easter our counter top needed a little change.  We don't have any outdoor space at our apartment so I decided to go with some fun colorful place mats and napkins that reminded me of patterns I would like to use if I had an outdoor patio area.  I am obsessed with green glass bottles right now and I thought they looked perfect!

I think Caleb thought I was crazy, and he refused to join in, but is it really Easter without coloring eggs?!  I love the bright colors, but what I love even more is eating the boiled eggs with tons of salt afterward.  :)  I also love how sometimes the color soaks through and makes the egg whites funny colors!

And I think he thought I was even CRAZIER when I got out of bed before him and hid the eggs for our own personal Easter egg hunt.  I was totally amused by watching a grown man hunt for eggs, but I don't think he was having quite as much fun... Ha!

This is Caleb in action.  As you can see
he is wearing his Easter finest.
We ate the eggs from the hunt for breakfast with some toast and fruit.  I made homemade rhubarb and strawberry compote to top the toast.  It was delicious!!  I love rhubarb.  It reminds me of my grandma.

Since color seemed to be the theme of the weekend, I made some yummy salmon with lemon, dill, and red onion.  D-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!

We also went to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat at the Civic Theatre over the weekend and it was awesome!  I had never seen it before, and it was definitely one of my favorites.  What made it even better is that Caleb's boss played the pharoah.  Soooo funny!  If you live in the area you should definitely check into it.

How was your Easter weekend?
