Happy Bunny Day
Happy Bunny day. I have been MIA for the past week and a half. Why? I was on vacation. Oh Yeah. A very relaxing, lay in the sun, listen to the ocean vacation. We went to St. Lucia, stayed at Sandals. This was our second time to this resort. It's so beautiful there. I didn't want to come home. More on that later.... I made this cake for Bunny day. My sista had dinner at her house. It was nice not to be the one doing the whole shindig. Because of the heat by the time I got to my sister's the m&m's had slid down the side on the top part. But it was a tasty cake. I also made pink coconut cupcakes and chocolate white chunk cookies. Also my famous big salad with fresh lemon vinegarette. My sister went overboard. She was married to a sicilian for 10 years, so she made, regular lasagna and spinach bechamel lasagna, homemade perogis (my grandmother's recipe), ham, and all the fixins. It's always great to see the kids. This is such a sugar holiday. This is my nephew who had a wad and I mean a wad of gum in his mouth. So wad=huge bubble=aunt who had to pop large bubble. He he... what are aunt's for anyway? So all in all it was a nice day.
Back on the vacation front. If your looking for someplace to go and just chill out, be pampered, eat great food, hang out by the pool/ocean and have a frozen cocktail ( I recommend the dirty banana, yummyyy). Check out Sandals, St. Lucia Sandals Regency golf resort and spa. The spa treatments where awesome, the people that work there are awesome. Everyone says hello to you. In this pic the Carribean is behind me, in front of me is the pool, with swim up bar. This is how the skyline looks every day here. It's paradise. As a whitebread chick I had to pace myself in the sun. I am happy to report, no sunburn, nice brown tan. This , my friends was the extent of my vacation, drink in hand basking in the sun, just plain old relaxation at it's finest. Lots of quality time with my husband. Because, we both work too hard. The temperature was about 86-93', very humid, but hey plenty of water to go around. Plenty of ice cold beverages. My hair got a little frizzy, so I went island style... As they say in St. Lucia, No Pressure, No Problem..... we should adopt that saying here in the Northeast.
