Hop In

I'm dreaming of overflowing baskets, playing [read beating] siblings in a friendly egg-tapping game of "pock-pock," and eating a Mom-cooked meal. Though I'm missing my family's Easter traditions, I'm excited and honored to be able to celebrate a major Christian holiday in this Muslim country. Hoping your weekend is alive and full of joy!

Vanessa: Welcome to Egg Pocking 101. It's a game where 2 people take turns tapping hard boiled eggs together. One person holds an egg with the small end facing up and the other person taps the tip with his egg, using the same egg end as well. After the "pocking" takes place (one hit), the person who's egg did not crack wins. You then go on to compete that egg with other players until your egg cracks and someone else wins. Make sense??

hey courtney, just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog to introduce yourself! I'm a big fan of your blog, so I was excited that you're a reader! And yes, I'm totally shy in real life, which is probably why I love blogging so much because it's just me and my laptop:)

Hope you had a Hoppy Easter;) Sorry, my mommy humor slipped out....Anyhoo, I'm SO excited that I randomly came across your blog. It is beyond entertaining in a GREAT way of course. Also, I about fell off my chair when I read that you worked at Hollywould! My closet is overflowing with Holly's creations, and I'm so sad they are on a "vacation". Hope you are living it up in KL!
