IKEA, Easter Egg Hunts, and Lunch With Michael Douglas

You can find them for just $20 at IKEA.

If we had a kitchen island in our house, I’d hang two or three of these over it. So cute.

Landon and I drove to New Jersey yesterday and spent half the day at IKEA.

We had lunch first, and then I dropped off L in Smalland.

While he was having fun in the ball pit, I went straight to the Marketplace and bought a few glasses for an upcoming post, fake flowers for a flower boxe I plan to add to our attic window, frames, and a ton of chocolate bars.

After I paid, it was time to pick up L. We had some ice cream and then checked out the kitchens together. This was my favorite one, kind of like a modern interpretation of a farmhouse kitchen. I almost bought those pink tumblers.

Today, L and I went to two Easter egg hunts. Because one is not enough.

I was holding my breath, but L was happy to pose with the Easter bunny! I wanted to break into a happy dance but kept it together.

If you’re a mom with a kid that’s growing up too fast, you’ll understand how happy that made this Mama. Look at him — he already looks like a teenager.

After the second Easter egg hunt, we drove to Farmer & the Fish, a farm-to-table restaurant in a beautiful 18th-century house. I had read that they were offering Easter egg coloring.

We ordered lunch by the fireplace, and then L went outside to color the eggs.

BTW, do those napkins look familiar? I use the same for our living room curtains.

Thinking hard about what to draw on the egg with the wax pen. He had so much fun.

Our lunch arrived, and while I was enjoying my beet salad with hazelnuts, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michale Douglas sat down next to me, with their two kids.

Lunch with Michael Douglas. Just another day in Westchester, NY.

What are you up to this weekend? Wishing you Happy Easter and Passover!
