Leftover Easter Eggs? Make Avocado Egg Salad!

First things first. Hi. Happy Easter. Happy Spring Break? This begins our week. I get excited, because I have big dreams for road trips and fun in the sun, but April in New England is rather tricky. We can have a blizzard. Or, it can be 86 degrees like it was yesterday for Easter. Cassidy’s birthday is in mid-April and he can remember hot/cold birthdays. Our anniversary is April 26th, and sure enough, I can remember wearing a winter coat as late as then, and I’ve worn sundresses on our anniversary too. We had our wedding in late April because the rates were off the chart cheaper than having a wedding in May – wedding season – but we tried to get it as close to May as possible. It snowed the weekend before and the weekend after our wedding.

Our wedding? It was overcast all morning and then beautifully 65 and partly sunny. Like this:

Avocado Egg Salad

Easter was.. a little weird. We were winding up the “best week of our lives.” It was good. Best week of our lives? Maybe in some small and powerful ways. Getting baby chicks. Celebrating Cassidy’s birthday so closely, and without kids. Getting more page views for ONE POST than I swear I’ve gotten for several consecutive months. That leads to new opportunities, of course, in my dream career. Still, I woke up on Easter Sunday and I was off. I think it was a mix of allergies, dehydration, being overtired, and being nervous/stressed. I woke up dizzy. Do you ever wake up dizzy? It can be terrifying and nausea-inducing.

It used to happen to me about once a year. NOT bad. Now it’s about once every 2-4 years. Whooo! I’m now home free?

What do you do when you’re dizzy? For me, I drink water and put my head down. I also lean both hands on something solid. I take deep breaths, maybe even use a little lavender oil, and focus on just one thing. It might be as silly as a game on my phone, or editing a difficult photo. All I know is that nothing was going to stop me from watching and enjoying the kids opening their Easter baskets. They were SO happy. And we were happy we pulled off the magic for another year.

Here’s to many more!


By late morning I was feeling completely back to normal, although drowsy from dizzy and unsettled sleep. We hadn’t seen one of my mothers-in-law in FOUR months. She came over with my father-in-law and we set right to work dying Easter eggs.

Then we celebrated all that we had missed in the last four months – birthdays, St. Patrick’s Day, etc. – with corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, carrots, homemade cole slaw, beet salad, snowflake rolls with homemade honey butter, and leftover birthday cake and ice cream. Then we played outside for hours, and played with the baby chicks for a bit. We don’t want to overstimulate them, but I think getting them comfortable with us is important too. One sat in my hand for five minutes today and I wasn’t holding her. I had my hand resting on the floor of the chicken nursery, and she sat companionably with/on me.

We get three more tomorrow!

Leftover Easter Eggs? Make Avocado Egg Salad! — 30 Comments

  1. I am a sucker for avocados and eggs, but never thought to use them together. But we do have leftover Easter Eggs after all is said and done. So may need to try this recipe now. Oh and Spring Break ended today with my girls going back to school after having last week off here. Easter ended up being 85 degrees here! Crazy, but by mid week it will only be int he 50s again. So, definitely agree about spring weather as you just never know.

  2. I have to tell you something funny! When I read the title of this post I was grossed out because I wasn’t thinking eggs… I was thinking chocolate eggs. LOL I was much relieved when I realized it was hard-boiled eggs.

    I love avocado sandwiches… this looks like a yummy version.

    Spring break hey? Sounds like your weather is a lot like ours. We had a major snow storm on Good Friday and we expect snow off and on throughout the week. Boooooo!

    Thanks for sharing this update and these gorgeous pictures too.

    Wishing you a lovely spring break week (regardless of weather).

  3. Happy Easter to you too! I love a good avocado egg salad. I love avocado on almost everything. It just makes everything taste so much better. We celebrated our spring break about 2 weeks ago so our kids are now back in school. Here’s to a week of calm!

  4. I love your wedding dress, I’m not sure if I’ve told you that before but I really do love it. I’ve been getting dizzy lately. I’m not 100% sure why, but when it happens I usually sit down or lay down and wait for it to pass. My boyfriend thinks its because I don’t eat enough food, he could be on to something lol. I like the idea of avocado egg salad, i like anything with avocados so this recipe is perfect for me.

    • Well it’s nice to hear so thank you for telling me that!
      I’m super late on reply commenting, but is the dizziness ok now? My friend was telling me yesterday she was having both migraines and vertigo, but not together.

  5. I am SO making this. I love avocados and I love eggs, so this a perfect combo for me. I used to hate avocados and then suddenly I liked them.

  6. Avocado and egg salad are two of my very favorite things – I am making this asap! I wake up really dizzy/unable to focus every once in a while. I just close my eyes again for a bit and it eventually goes away. It always makes me worried, but it’s been happening for years and years, so it must not be serious. Hope you have the most fun spring break!

  7. Nice!!! I would never have thought of this. Now what do I do with all the ham…why do I always buy so much ham? Congrats on your post!! Which post was it? i need to make sure I read it.

  8. I haven’t experienced extreme dizziness with a while, but I do remember one day when I was working in the city and on a subway on my way home when I thought there was no way I’d ever make it. I wanted to rip off my clothes and sleep on the cold floor and I was scared I’d vomit all over a passenger. Thankfully it passed, and I hope that it has for you as well and that you were able to rest up <3 Sometimes that's our bodies telling us we need to slow down.

    Oh, the baby chicks are so cute! I love that one of them sat comfortably with you. So sweet! The kids must be so excited 🙂

    Also this looks delicious. I have never made this recipe before, but I'd like to since avos and eggs are like two of my main food groups, lol. Hope you had a very happy Easter/spring break and congrats on breaking a new record with your blog! You are awesome 🙂 XOXO

  9. If I feel dizzy I usually try to sit down and also drink some water.
    The avacado egg salad looks yummy.
    Scarlet is so cute in her dress ☺
