How was your Easter? Mine was absolutely, with out a doubt amazing!

We started off the morning with church service, which we successful endured. Oh, that sounds terrible, but with an almost two year old sometimes that’s the only way to describe it! My husband leaned over half way through the service and said he was going to sweat through both of his shirts from wrestling Miss K! She’s not naughty but she’s a normal, active kid and you know how that goes! We got home and go her down for a hour nap, then went out to the hubs relatives and had a nice Easter meal.

And man oh man was the weather GORGEOUS! And we deserve it. End of story.

We ate our Easter meal out on the deck and it was awesome. This mom forgot sunscreen because we were just wearing boots a few days ago and my child got a little sunburned. #momfail

Miss K LOVED the Easter egg hunt! We continued to throw eggs out in the yard just because she wanted to run and get them. It was hilarious! She’s also into this “Hold My Hand Mom” every time we are walking and it kind of melts my heart.

After that we came home and swung, went on a walk and ate dinner out on the patio. I hope this weather is here to stay!

Speaking of amazing weather I suppose soon the dog days of summer will be here and we will be trying to think of treats to make that doesn’t include turning on the oven to bake something! I have the perfect sweet treat for you today! This snack mix is so addictive like most of them! It’s sweet, salty and perfect!

I brought it to work to share and my coworker referred to it as “Crack”. I’d have to agree.

People will be fighting you for the bowl when you make this! Don’t worry there will be plenty to go around!

    Mmm, that looks like such a good snack 🙂

  • Anna @ Garnish with Lemon


    This is one of those snacks that I’d put on my desk to munch on, and 10 minutes later the entire batch would be gone. Absolutely addictive!

  • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes)


    You definitely know how to do a mix right!

  • Laura Dembowski


    Chex mix is awesome! I’ve never seen a recipe like this but I can’t wait to try it. I have to make sure I have someone to give leftovers too, though, because I don’t want to eat it all!

    Am I the only one who gets freaked out putting unwrapped food in a paper bag?!? I am thinking I will do this in the oven. Who knows what’s been in that bag :(. Sounds yummy!

    • Julie Evink


      Haha as I was making this I thought to myself…wow I’m really nuts using this paper bag 🙂 So no you aren’t not the only one!

  • Jen @ Yummy Healthy Easy


    Holy yum. Sweet & salty is my fave – this looks so good, Julie!

  • Cathy@LemonTreeDwelling


    Sounds like you had such a nice Easter! Okay, and this Chex mix sounds awesome!! Usually I pick around and just take out my favorites (shhhh) but I love everything in this one! Yummy!!!

  • Sharon Redden


    Can I put this mixture in a bowl instead of paper sack? Don’t have any paper sacks.

    • Julie Evink


      I think it would work but I’ve never tried it! Let me know if it does!!
