An ANNIE Inspired Easter Basket for Dog Lovers

Can you believe Easter is coming up?! I’ve been slowly picking up items for my girl’s Dog Lover’s Easter Basket to create something unique as her.

Easter Party Food and Playdate Ideas: DIY Easter Basket Pudding Snack

We had friends over recently and instead of a regular ol’ snack, I decided to create Easter party food that’s easy enough for a mid-week playdate. Actually, all I did was set out a few ingredients and let the kids create their own Easter basket “recipe”! I had some things in our pantry and picked up a few items during our weekly grocery run to Walmart, who is sponsoring this
