Pretty Ordinary gives you a sneak peek into Lily & Val behind the scenes! On Lily & Val Living!

For this week’s Pretty Ordinary Friday #48, we’re documenting snapshots of our week. While our pictures may not be the prettiest or the most interesting, we enjoyed each instance and want to remember them! These are the behind-the-scenes, in-between moments – the small peeks that would otherwise be forgotten. Join us as we use this series to scrapbook the unedited, memorable happenings at Lily & Val and what is inspiring our team!

Lily & Val Presents: Pretty Ordinary Friday #48 shares Valerie McKeehan family picture, Easter food favorite of deviled eggs, home made guacamole4“3 of my favorite guys around – my husband, Mak, and my brothers, Alec and Neal. Today is Neal’s birthday!! This photo was taken on Easter.” -Valerie

5. “The past two Easters, Mak and I spent the day before making deviled eggs. For those that make deviled eggs, you know it’s a long process, but I enjoy it. Last year, when we brought them to my parent’s house, my Dad said they reminded him of his Mother. That was really special to me and I told myself I want to make them for him every year. I can’t take any credit for the filling recipe though, that is all Mak’s creative chef skills!” -Valerie

6. “I think homemade guacamole is going to be a staple at the McKeehan household this spring/summer. I mix mine with: jalapeno, red onion, green onion, garlic, cilantro, and lemon juice. Delicious.” -Valerie

She made these “hyacinth” desserts out of cheerios, fruit roll ups, and oreo dirt in the terra cotta pots. She sat them at each place setting at Easter dinner.” -Valerie

8. “My daughter made out like a bandit at the Easter Egg hunt at Mimi and Pap Pap’s house!” –Maureen

9. “My dog did not find this headband as amusing as I did obviously…” –Maureen
