Marching Madly Towards Easter!

We love March Madness, and we decorated our home accordingly. Sadly, the UConn men, 2014’s national champions, did not make it into the tourney this year. But the women are ranked #1 in the country! Go Huskies!!

Pictured above is Heather Huskie, our UConn Cheerleader doll, showing off her 2 Easter baskets. One is a basketball basket, the perfect combination of March Madness and Easter.   The other “basket”  is a cute Easter hat we got from a dollar store. Adding decorative grass makes this the perfect nest for these cute chicks. Plus, since they are from a dollar store, these chicks were cheap, cheap,  cheap!

We hung our UCONN Huskies blanket as a backdrop for our UCONN stuff. Time for a 3-PEAT!!!

With what food should we cheer on the UConn Huskies??? Yukon Gold potatoes, of course! (Well, it sounds the same!) Here is a recipe from Jacques Pepin that he shared with Rachael Ray – It is delicious!

We are fans of party stores like Party City. We love this centerpiece. Kevin’s family will recognize this centerpiece from Irene’s house. She was UCONN’s biggest fan.
