In this instance I had a friend who was having a rough time and I wanted to cheer her up. I just wanted it to be something fun and a little silly. A cheer up and a thank you for being such an amazing friend. Enter the bucket/box/bag of sunshine idea I have seen done several ways on Pinterest. A simple idea of finding a cute container and filling it with all things bright and yellow and sunny. I love it because it is easy to cater to whoever the gift is for and having a theme (yellow things) makes it an easier way to find fun gifts if you are short on ideas. I hit up two stores and filled a whole basket full of sweets, drinks, fun items and silly games. It was fun to put together and it was well received. Brighten someone's day today!

See what I did there? Well so much for "hoping" right back on the blog bandwagon.
I hope everyone had a lovely Easter. I spent a good chunk of it in my car alone, but hey that's the price you pay to get to go see your cousins's adorable twin girls. Babies! Silly hormones.
I did get to try a new recipe from Pinterest. I made blueberry white chocolate chip cookies and they were amazing! Often times my cookies don't turn out as lovely as I would hope so this was a nice change. They were a big hit for Easter and I think the flavor is perfect for spring. Maybe add some dried cranberries to make it red, white, and blue worthy for 4th of July!
Here is the recipe
