Meatless Monday–How to Make a Bunny Cake and Running in Orange County

Hello! How’s it going?

My morning started a lot earlier than usual since I was leading that hike/walk I mentioned. It’s an annual wellness retreat that I’ve helped with for the past two years. They asked me to come back and lead the walking/running portion of the exercise classes.

So, I was there before the sun this morning.

I actually was really nervous about leading the group! It’s been a long time since I’ve done group fitness. Ah! Luckily it went okay (I hope they thought so too). Everyone seemed to have a good time. But, who can complain when you’re here, right…

After I was done I ran a couple of miles down by the water to say hello to the Pacific Ocean.

And I came home to see Vegas slept in, per usual…

    Someday I might tackle this bunny cake. In the meantime I will make my tried and true rum cake (grandmas recipe).

    I am not catholic but spend Easter every year with my dear friend sue. She is Italian and so we have pasta in addition to the more traditional ham.

    Yep lasagna. Bring it! :)

    What a beautiful hike! I am shaming myself for not getting over to the coast more for outdoor adventures. What’s the point of living next to the ocean if you don’t visit it now and then?

    The bunny cake is adorable, and I would absolutely inhale those birds nest treats. Yum!

    We will most likely be having some type of fish on Easter Sunday because we spend the Friday and Saturday before fishing and lounging on the boat. Okay, mostly I lounge, but we always catch Easter dinner and this time of year in Florida it’s usually red snapper or sheephead, yummy!

    I made your birds nests last year with some nutella in the middle and they were deeeee-lish. I don’t know whats on the menu this year but what I do know is that the second that easter M&Ms go on sale I will tackle anyone and everyone that gets in my way.

    your bunny cake is adorable! I would love to make one but I feel like mine would be one of those expectation versus reality pins on pinterest! I SUCK at anything remotely creative. Gorgeous view for the run too!! And I’m sure your group went awesome!

    I would have loved to be in your hiking group. I’m sure it was fun for participants as well as a good workout. That bunny cake is too cute to eat.
