Sister,

How was your dinner? Did Andrew devour the black bean burgers? Yum. Next time you make them, you must make this little bean medley called Cowboy Caviar. It is a good mix of just the right tastes of what spring is. Side dishes are crucial to a good meal you know. Split open the chips and immerse to your hearts content.

2 cups corn

2 cups black-eyes peas
1 cup chopped tomato
1 bunch cilantro
1 sm. Bunch green onions, chopped
2 avacados, chopped
1 t. cumin
1/8 t. pepper
_ t. salt
_ cup olive oil
2 cloes garlic
mix well.

I have been thinking about your tinted chap stick inspiration. I think I have discovered a winner. Murad Pomegranate Lip Therapy hit the spot.


While on the subject of make-up, Oliver continues to put my make-up on. He wakes up at 6:30 each morning, and while I am sleeping, he is applying.

He has single-handedly destroyed my mascara. While in my searches for the finest mascara out there, I came across this. Shu Uemura makes this lovely product that is thick and adds serious volume.

I’m a fan…are you?

For decorating eggs this year all one needs is eggs and very thick glitter.

The glitter adds so much sparkle and pizzazz to the pastel traditional Easter egg. I also plan on hanging them from a live branch I cut from the garden. That way, in a few days when the blossoms on the branch bloom, I will have a live Easter egg tree.

What are you going to wear for the hunt? What about Easter dinner? I am determined to wear my Easter hat to church. Do you have one?

I wish I could spend the holiday with you. I will miss you.

Loves,
Nie
