Weekend Recap + BB Dakota Summer Dress Picks

I hope everyone had a nice Easter! It was so great to have that one extra day added to the weekend. I could definitely use more of those.  Our Easter was spent with my in-laws in Surfside Beach.  We arrived just in time to catch this gorgeous view before the sun disappeared.

The view was just as beautiful when the moon came out. Although it was not an easy thing to capture in a photo...this is about as good as it got. 
We enjoyed a nice dinner with the family and called it an early night. 
Sunday morning we were up and out of the house early for church so we could get back in time to prepare lunch. How pretty is this table scape that my mother in law put together?!?
I loved the use of the mint julep cups as vases for the tulips.
I didn't get photos of the large spread we had (or many photos at all for that matter), but it sure was delicious. My contributions were dessert and this cheese ball, which you can find the recipe for here. In case your wondering what in the world it's shaped like... it's my poor attempt at a bunny. I was running low on sleep when I made this Friday night. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
I also attempted to make Oreo pops for the kids. They turned out alright for my first try, but I could use a little more practice. My main dessert on the other hand, turned out really well. I will be sharing that recipe with you tomorrow.
I wore this BB Dakota dress, which I snagged from a cute little boutique on a past trip to Key West, FL. It's so comfortable, has a great fit and is affordable,  needless to say, I'm a big fan of this brand. Below are a few pieces that I'm currently eyeing from their Spring and Summer collections.

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter!
