Pastel Easter Confections

The boyfriend and I went to the beach the day before Easter to pick up a pair of secondhand vintage-style bikes. We took the tram there but had not realized that bikes were not allowed, which presented a fairly large obstacle on our return trip! (The perils of having our different public transport modes operated by 3 different companies - while bikes are welcome on the train they are, for some odd reason, not okay on trams or buses). Thankfully the tram track ran right beside a bike path, so a five dollar pair of helmets from the 7-11 later we were cruising!

I picked up this gorgeous scarf the day before - I simply could not resist the darling bunny pattern! Perfect for Easter.

All those pastels made me feel a little like a walking egg myself - but it is so fun to get into the spirit of things. 

Ta da! My new baby. I've bought a book about casual rides to take in Melbourne - it is looking like a good way for the boy and I to go sightseeing without spending too much money. And all that biking is good for the thighs too (which helped with working off the Easter treats!)

Speaking of... while I was withdrawing cash I found this egg at an ATM in the city! I miss the egg hunts from my childhood so it was a lovely surprise.

I hope you all had a wonderful, restful Easter. I myself may have rested a little too much, as my lack of progress on my assignments will attest... back to the books!
