Easter is coming up and since most my friends don't have great big plans for Easter compared to other holidays I decided to plan a Easter party this Sunday for all the kids!

This weekend is going to be cold so I had to clean out my not finished super dusty basement and be prepared to do some easy toddler games inside the basement. I guess that's better than freezing outside!

Hungry hungry bunny! ha ha I made this Hungry Hungry Bunny game! Drew a big bunny with a huge mouth, wset him onto a big chalk board thingy and glued together Carrot shaped eggs to toss into the mouth!

Punch a prize!!

Here is the FIELD OF PRIZES game, Just like the Punch a prize on price is right! I made this so that during egg hunting each kid needs to find a golden egg, which will have a number in it and they punch that number to get out the prizes! I asked that everyone coming brought some kind of candy, toy, stickers or whatever to bring for each kid and that's what will be inside each hole!

Name tags,  bags, and egg hunt directions  are all ready!! I'm a kid again and excited!Name tags, and Easter bags to color! Than collect Eggs!

Were having a wagon ride threw trails we have in our back yard, Were calling it "Bunny Trails" and were making a few stops where the kids will get off the wagon and collect their eggs!

and cant forget the homemade treasure box I made, full of prizes to win! Each game were playing the kids will win tokens which will let them get a prize out of the Treasure Box! ooooo fun fun! Treasure box is made out of my hubbys Boot box, gold wrapping paper and good ol duct tape!

 and also have the bounce house downstairs to blow up! Perfect!

I am beyond excited for this party! I pretty much had everything at home to make each game, I did a lot of DIY-ing and spent little $$$ which is always great and nothing is better than seeing the kids have some fun!

Few Crafts we did! Thank you pinterest!

Pro Compression/ Discounts and giveaway

Pro compression was absolutely amazing and they gave me a pair of their marathon compression socks a few weeks ago! I have seem these EVERYWHERE! I mean if you are a runner, or stalk bloggers, You for sure seen these around! I couldn't wait to try them!
From Pro compression site:
Why PRO Compression Socks?

The benefit of wearing compression socks over 26.2 miles, 18 holes or 8 hours at work is the delay of muscular breakdown that comes from spending hours on your feet. PRO Compression works against gravity by helping your vascular system increase blood flow which relieves discomfort and assists in recovery. The minute you put them on, you’ll understand why PRO Compression socks are the World’s Best Athletic Performance Socks! 
(more on their socks click here!)
They are right when they say you will understand right as you put them on.
 Let me tell ya...These babies are tight and fit so snug over your foot and calf, which really does make it feel amazing on your calf's during and after workouts for recovery! Now if only I could get a pair that I could pull completely over my body..DANG I'd look real skinny!  full body everyday compression, YES PLEASE!
you see that nasty vein I have? EMBARRASSING, Well it now shows like crazy ever since last year when I trained for my first half marathon. All I ever heard was to get compression socks, but all I ever found was those old lady nude color ones. EW!
So not only do these cute pro compressions help my muscles after long runs but these babies I hope help my nasty vein from bulging out anymore,! At least they will cover it :)
Check Out how strong she is! 
 Of course she wanted to try them on! And this is her "workout clothes" as she calls it! HA
Some action shots!
