yard decorations

Sunday, April 10, 2011
To end this weekend in our sweet 81 degrees we experienced in Cleveland all Sunday, the BF and I took a walk through the neighborhood. It's been forever since I've had a on tank top and shorts so I was all about being outside as much as possible today.

We live in suburbia. Granted, it's right by a few kick ass shopping malls on the east side and a hop, jump and skip from other Cleveland neighborhoods, it's still suburbia. On our walk, I've never noticed how many people celebrate Easter in their front yards - it's like an easter basket on their freaking lawn.

Growing up, I remember my mom decorating with easter egg clings on the windows and baskets in our house. That's it. Plain and simple. Easter is like the spring Christmas when it comes to decorations now. It's no longer just window clings. There are colored lights, giant easter eggs, rabbit statues and inflatable flipping rabbits.

Inflatable rabbits!

Some rabbits even inside a basket surrounded with eggs. All lit up

It's incredible.

If I would've had my iPhone, I would've had pictures to show of these awesomely hilarious decorations but I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

Love it or hate it?

I'm pretty sure the only thing I can respond with is wow... I barely remember to put a little bunny out inside the house, let alone let the holiday explode on my front lawn!

That is amazing. Reminds me about the tacky Xmas decor near my house too! Love that inflatable stuff (no pun intended)
