Hey all! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I am a day behind, recovering from too much Easter fun! Before I get to that, let's start back with Friday.
I didn't do anything of note Friday evening, other than picking up my apartment and packing for a trip back home.
I was up early to head to my parents'. The drive was uneventful, although some people are just crazy drivers. I am always so thankful when I drive longer distances at how close I am to things on an everyday basis because like I said - people are just nuts on the roads! We took a walk around the neighborhood and then had a quick lunch before heading out to run errands. We all had a few things to return, at various places, so it worked out well. Unfortunately, that Loft skirt I had been lusting over turned out to not be a good fit for me. The length was wrong, but even hemmed it just didn't fit me quite right. Always hate when that happens! On the other hand, I have been in desperate need of some new work out clothes, and was able to pick some up on sale at Dick's. Tank tops for $10, a few sports bras - one $12 and $15, and then capris were buy one get one half off, so my mom picked some up for herself and gave me her half off pair! I was excited to work out yesterday, just so I could wear some of my new purchases. The rest of the night consisted of us (my mom) conquering the lamb cake, having burgers and watch The Ten Commandments. I totally forgot to include that in my Easter traditions post, but that is definitely one of them! Such an amazing movie, especially when you think about how old it is!
Easter morning started off with a hunt for my Easter basket (bag). I actually had a little harder time finding it this year, because my parents' didn't tell me which room it was in. Inside was an Arch Apparel t shirt (I had been wanting one!), socks, a Scrub Daddy, new nail polish, and some Easter candy. We headed to my grandma's for church, FaceTimed with my brother & family, then my aunt and uncle's for Easter lunch. My aunt and uncle moved into a new condo less than a year, ago, so it's always fun when we get to go over there and see all the little changes they have made since last time. The food was ridiculously good. Ham, shrimp, kidney bean salad, two potato salads, rolls, baked beans, carrots, green beans...I mean the list just goes on. And everything was amazing. My uncle made homemade vanilla ice cream, my aunt made triple chocolate brownies, and of course we had the lamb cake...along with a bunch of other Easter candy. It was all SO GOOD. It was fun catching up with everyone and enjoying what turned out to be a beautiful day. I was so worn out after the fact, hence no post yesterday.
I decided to avoid the long drive home Sunday night, and got up early Monday to drive back. It was back to work and back to the grind.
