Hop Hop Hop Hop Hippity Hop

Hey buckaroos! I hope that you all had a great Easter weekend! I want to share a few Easter related goodies with you.

First, I want to give you this clip from one of the best movies in the history of the world, Harvey. If you haven't seen it, please do. It's ah-mazing and it has my boyfriend, Jimmy Stewart in it. Oh, he's glorious. Let's take a moment to admire. Yes...yes.

I've never wanted to be a stuffed rabbit so much in my life.

The movie is about a man and his very tall, invisible rabbit friend and the hilarity that ensues as his family attempts to cope with it all. The moral of the story is one that I especially LOVE. I cry when I watch it every single time. It's currently on YouTube in full if you'd like to see it.

Here is one of my favorite parts and a very nice Easter theme song:

And next up, this photo that I love of my grandmother and my great aunts on what most likely was Easter.

I totally wish that women still wore corsages for special occasions. And definitely sweet hats and gloves. That's my grandmother on the far left. I look just like her now. It's kind of insane how much. I especially love my great Aunt Etrulia's ensemble on the far right. Very chic.

And speaking of chic, here I am with my "boy" Jack many Easters ago in my favorite Easter ensemble.

Yeah, I don't know.

And finally, I wanted to tell you a cute little story about my friend, Libby and her daughter, Violet who is almost four. Here was their conversation about dying eggs this week:

Libby:Vio, would you like to dye Easter eggs tomorrow?
Violet: Mama! We can't. People would be sad!

Libby: Oh. No babe. Dying means to color them. Not killing them.
Violet. I forgot. OK then. How about green?

Until next time,
x's and o's,

Rae - Say It Aint So said...

oh my word that bunny costume!!!!!! aahhhhh!!! so hilarious! and did you see the episode of hoarders where a guy had hundreds of those boy mannequins?

Miriam said...

1. I've seen Harvey! It's wonderful!

2. I despise corsages, but could totally get behind the hats and gloves. Also, Etrulia is an AWESOME name.

3. That photo is so scary. It would be enough to send my mannequin-fearing sister into a full on panic attack.

I Love Harvey!!

And that rabbit costume is fabulous he he!

I actually loved both versions of Harvey that (swoon) Jimmy Stewart did. Both lovely in their own way.

Gotta say, that mannequin is too freaky for me.

LOVE the picture of your Grandma and Aunt. I think I'm purposefully going to get and wear a corsage on Mother's Day. You're right, they're beautiful. The story is adorable.

Your family pic is completely gorgeous, and you do look so much like your beautiful grandma - it's stunning really.

Oh wow, I remember dressing up for Easter...hats, gloves and it was probably the first time in the spring season where I was allowed to wear white shoes.

Jen said...

Oh, that is classic. All of it, really...Hope you all had a wonderful Easter.

And I've had a LONG-time crush on Jimmy Stewart myself!
