Life Lately: Easter with 4 Doodles

Life Lately: Easter with 4 Doodles

Hey Friends! I hope you had a wonderful Easter! We went to church as a family and then had all of the kids and dogs over (ha!) to our house for an Easter brunch.

It’s always a wild party with all the doodles here. :)

Trying to get all of the dogs into one photo is a bit challenging if not impossible, but this method worked pretty well.

The pups look almost bigger than the kids!

Our dogs range from 30 pounds to 45 pounds, so they aren’t really as huge as they might appear. Especially Lily being held by (on the left). Courtney is just a petite girl, haha, and Lily looks like she was trying to escape.

We had the simplest decor on the table this year. My vase was a HomeGoods find awhile back, but it is almost exactly like ! I filled it with these pretty that feel oh so springy.

I tried unsuccessfully to wrangle dogs so I could sit down and chat, ha!

Mostly the dogs just like to be the center of attention.

To simplify our food prep this time, we ordered gluten-free vegan quiche from a local restaurant (Celest Cafe in Seattle) and baked it at home. It was delicious (but expensive)! The crust was yummy, too.

I need to find a good gluten-free vegan crust or a recipe (any suggestions?). I’m still learning how to navigate the fully gluten-free plant-eating life, although it hasn’t been quite as hard as I thought!

Kylee made this delicious salad with kale, arugula, radish, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, red onion, avocado, basil, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. She also made a dressing with olive oil, lemon, white wine vinegar, salt, Dijon mustard, and maple syrup. Mmmm.

Kylee always makes such yummy (plant-based) meals! If you follow her , she often posts what she’s making on her stories.

Courtney made (gluten-free and vegan!). We served it with the vanilla bean non-dairy So Delicious coconut milk ice cream. Oh my goodness, the crisp was SOOOO good! It will definitely be a new traditional favorite. I would eat this every day if it was acceptable to do so.

Spring is here! If you’re as excited to get outside as I am, here are some simple ways to tidy up and decorate your porch.

Simple Ways to Decorate Your Porch for Spring

1. A fresh doormat

Simple Ways to Decorate Your Porch for Spring

I love getting new doormats. I don’t necessarily get them every season or every year, but depending on the condition of the one I have (or my desire for a new look!) spring is a fun time to splurge on something new.

Whether you get a new doormat or not, take a few minutes to sweep off the porch! My porch still had a few fall leaves and some pine needles from my Christmas decor. :)

2. A layered rug

Give your doormat an extra dose of pizzaz! Doormats aren’t always pretty. Layering a larger underneath a smaller doormat can add an interesting twist with additional texture, pattern or color. A larger rug can also make your whole porch look refreshed if the paint or concrete has seen better days.

3. Plants in pots

I love going to the garden center this time of year, do you? Treat yourself to a new outdoor plant. Fresh greenery will bring a touch of life to your porch! Sometimes I don’t even plant mine, I just keep them in the pot they came in and then set into an existing pot. Instant SPRING!

4. A spring door basket

I love hanging a basket on my door for seasonal flowers! It’s so easy to add a spring bouquet or some plant clippings from the yard into the basket (you can set a small vase or jar inside)! Refresh as needed! My basket above was hung by a ribbon tacked in between the two parts of the front Dutch door.
