Easter Celebrations and Decorations + HM # 176

Welcome to the Home Matters Linky Party #176! Our theme today is Easter Celebrations and Decorations! I love the Easter holiday. Our littles are just now 19 months, so we’ve been trying to teach them about Easter Egg hunting, but, as the years go on, we’re excited to teach them about the true meaning behind Easter! He is RISEN! I’m so thankful! And I’m excited to share some Easter ideas with you today! #EasterCelebrations #HomeMattersParty

Inspirational Easter Printables – FREE!

This past weekend was a very busy one – two rehearsals and two performances of our church’s Palm Sunday/Easter musical, “The Story”.


For those of you who may not know, my husband and I both sing in the choir at our church (we have about 80 Worship Arts Members, including choir, band, sound and video team) and were excited for “The Story”. It was originally a book by Max Lucado (one of my faves!) and was transformed into a musical journey through the Bible, with visuals like this one (CLICK HERE if you have a second and want to see one of the songs!) Since we’ve been practicing these songs since January, they’ve really made their way into my heart, not just my head, and lyrics are POWERFUL! So I thought I’d make some inspirational Easter printables for everyone from some of my favorite lyrics…for you to grab for FREE, of course! So here we go… WhoButYou Continue reading

A Winner… and the Spring-Easter Holiday Shelf!

You remember we were having a giveaway last week for some fantastic Van’s Natural Foods products, right? Well, we have a winner!

Calli Welsch! Calli, you are the winner! Congrats!!! Please shoot me an email at Kristen@theroadtodomestication.com and I’ll get you all set up! Thanks so much to everyone who participated!

And now…

I can hardly believe that it’s time to decorate my holiday shelf again! 2014 is much better than 2013, as far as holiday spacing on the calendar is concerned. I had a good amount of time for the St. Patricks’s Day decor to stay up, and now Easter and Spring are coinciding nicely! So, may I present, the Spring-Easter Holiday Shelf!


Now, I MAY be a bit willing to admit that I MIGHT have gone a little bit bright and colorful and cheerful on this one. I. DON’T. CARE. It’s SPRING, for goodness sake! And EASTER, too!

What Now?

First of all, I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter, and I want to thank  you for sharing my blog post “Planning Your Easter Menu”! I am so please that particular post received almost 1,100 views! WOW!!! (For this little blog of mine, that’s HUGE!!!)

So…now what? People always talk about the “post-holiday blues” after Christmas and New Years, but yesterday, a friend of mine mentioned that there were no more holidays to decorate for until July 4th, and how sad she was about that. I got to thinking – I guess the post-holiday blues can happen any time!

The pic comes from my favorite waffle company, Van’s Natural Foods!

And since probably no one is planning to serve waffles on Easter, let’s talk about your Easter Menu!
