This is how we do it on Easter in the Gomez-Duplessis family. Since they were babies it’s been our family tradition to have a Easter egg hunt in the yard. Now that everyone is of age and this year is our last Easter together in our Connecticut home we decided to add a little libation to this egg hunt. This year concoction was made by my son, I saw Svedka Vodka, and Finlandia Vodka but I’m not sure of his mixture. It was actually DE-LISH!
After the egg hunt we sit at the table, we eat and drink while enjoying each others company.
Then watch a few movies outside. Usually the kids will pick a movie and hubby and I pick one movie. I don’t usually make it for the bonus one. Either I have fallen asleep 😴 💤 or I’m cleaning my kitchen. And it goes a little something like this….
Do you have any fun family traditions on Easter Sunday?

Brandy is located on Oahu island in Ewa Beach but you can find her working doing makeup in Kapolei. Being a top influencer & blogger don’t be surprised to see her writing beauty articles and taking selfies for her 60K followers on Instagram on the beautiful beaches in Honolulu…and YES, there are black people living in Hawaii.
Another relaxing and enjoyable Christmas with the family. We didn’t have any family members come up to visit. The cold weather & snow is something that keeps them away. It was just us 4 but with all the laughter, music, drinks being poured and food eaten you would have thought we were hosting. My tradition is mimosa and a bake good before we start unwrapping gifts, then we make our way to the living in sit by the fireplace. For Michael and I it always feel like our babies are still babies. We enjoy watching them opening their gifts. I don’t care how old our kids get we luv having them home for the holidays. So I do go all out for them while they are still home. Once they start their own family there is no guarantees that they will continue to celebrate with us. So I’m getting my time in.

My next gift for Envy are classes because she does a great job playing by ear but with a few lessons she could be a rock star. #justsaying

Even though I have a fab time with my family, I always have a moment for girlfriend Chiquita SimmsChiquita Simms who I lost on Christmas Day in Atlanta while preparing for a big Christmas event. She passed due to a brain aneurysm, leaving behind a son. I’ll never forget the day I found out, I was home in New York. I never thought I would be able to enjoy Christmas ever again. LOVE YOU CHIQUITA!!!!
Then later in the day when I finally decide to check my texts & emails I see breaking news of George Michael passing on this day. This is why I try to enjoy each in every day stress free & no drama. Because we never know when it’s our last day.
