Easter Weekend Wrap-Up

We had a great Easter weekend! We had beautiful weather and were very productive. Friday I was off work and created my new spring wreath! We had Spinach and Ricotta Shells for dinner which I have shared with you all before. They were delicious as always. You can’t go wrong with stuffed shells. We caught up on some of our DVR shows Friday night and just relaxed.

Saturday, we had breakfast at Bob Evans and then headed to Lowe’s We bought everything we needed to finish fencing in our yard! You can read all about that on Tyler’s blogging post, his first contribution to the blog. And he is a good writer and funny so I will be having him do more posting. While Tyler worked on the fence I weeded my flowers and put up my new potted flowers and garden flag. I was quite excited about those and now our yard looks so cute and ready for spring!

After our yard work we got ready and headed over to the Twaddell’s for Easter egg dying, dinner, an inspirational egg hunt, cheesecake and Nertz. If you have never heard of Nertz or experienced the Twaddell’s playing it then you won’t understand my excitement about coming in 3rd place!! It is a game of speed and that is something the Twaddell family excels at, the Ballards and Glovers not as much. So I was proud to come in 3rd out of 7 people playing!

On Sunday we dressed up and headed to church for Easter Sunday. Growing up in a Southern Baptist church I just felt the need to dress up for Easter. When I was a little girl it was always so exciting to get our Easter dresses! It was a dreary and rainy day on Sunday so we came home and spent the day lounging on the couch and I also prepared us a delicious meal, Chicken Casserole and Pineapple Casserole, recipes coming later this week!

We had a great weekend and this morning it was back to the grind. I am not the biggest fan of Monday’s but I mean who really is? But this work day is close to over and then we are one day closer to the weekend 🙂 This coming weekend if the weather is nice we are hoping to go into DC and check out the Cherry Blossoms! Quick find the Zyrtec, hello allergies!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Weekend Wrap-Up

We had a really fun weekend with really nice weather that then turned to snow this morning? So strange.

Friday was so nice and warm so we ate leftovers for dinner then went shopping! I hadn’t been on a good shopping spree in awhile so it was a lot of fun! I got some for my easter/spring centerpiece which I will post about later this week so stay tuned!

Saturday morning we tried out breakfast at a local restaurant close to our house! We had a delicious breakfast then drove around looking at local sites. I then went to get a pedicure to prepare for my trip next week to the beach!! I can’t wait. Hopefully it will be sunny and in the 70’s and I will be happy!

We found a new favorite show on Saturday, Property Wars on the Discovery Channel. If you have not watched it before then you should because it is such a fun show! Saturday night we had date night and went to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner to celebrate 9 months of marriage! We then went to see Safe Haven which was really good!

Sunday we went to community group, church then had brunch with our friends Matt and Katie at Cracker Barrel. Does it get much better than Cracker Barrel for home cooking not at home? I don’t think so. Grocery shopping then a lazy day around the house. We discovered another new show. Downton Abbey. We watched the pilot and now I can’t wait to get home tonight and watch another episode!

So that was our weekend in all it’s glory! We had a fun time and enjoyed it. Next weekend I will be out of town and it will be the first time we’ve been apart over night since we got married 😦 I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Spring… Are you coming?

We had a few warm days here and there and I had hope that maybe Spring was coming. Well now it looks like a giant snowstorm is heading our way. We may end up with rain or tons of wet, heavy snow. So it looks like winter has decided to come very late. I just keep thinking beach, beach, beach because I get to spend 4 days at the beach with my family in just a few weeks!

Due to the cold weather we did not do anything very exciting this weekend. Friday night we just relaxed and I was asleep by 9:30. Last week was a long week in nanny-land. Hopefully this week will be better. Saturday we got up and headed to Chick-fil-a for breakfast (Yum!) and then did some shopping. My current organizing obsession is those lovely wicker baskets with the fabric lining. I got the cutest one the other weekend for Dolly that says “My Stuff” and has paw prints on it. I got one to organize the bench at our entry way for gloves and hats and such. This weekend I got one to put on the back of our toilet because we have zero counter space. So it was so nice to put everything in the basket and have our small bathroom counter free of clutter!

On Sunday we went to church, grocery shopping and worked out. We are not very exciting in the winter weather. This coming weekend we are going to Ohio to visit my family and taking Dolly with us. Hopefully she will be a good car traveler and hopefully the winter storm won’t interfere with our travel plans!
