Easter Weekend Roundup!

I love spring.  I seriously love that we can start to do things outside and not be freezing our tails off, which I definitely did a lot of on this beautiful Easter weekend!

Friday.  I had off work and since it was Good Friday, the fiance also had off of baseball practice.  We took advantage of a free afternoon with a trip to home depot and a few hours of deck staining.  You know, married stuff.  It's good to be adult sometimes and feel like you aren’t letting your house fall apart ;)  

Saturday.  My mom came down and we spent the first part of the day watching my fiance’s baseball game.  He coaches high school and his team is pretty darn good so I’m hoping to be watching a lot more of them in the next month or so.  I love coming to his game and seeing the big smile on his face when he sees that I’ve come to watch.  He’s pretty adorable.  And wearing baseball pants.  

After the game, we made our way to the Ellicott City Spring Festival.  We are very big fans of festivals, craft fairs, places where bands are playing, and the like, so it was what I would call the makings of a great day.  We walked around all of the shops which I have sadly never actually been inside before and enjoyed a Mexican lunch outside.  Finally.  One of my favorite things about summer is coming to fruition.  

I went home only to turn back around and go back later with the fiance with a night out and a few too many beers with friends.  It was fun though, and I got a workout in with all the walking.

Sunday.  HAPPY EASTER!  I surprised him with his “man basket” (even though he totally knew he was getting one.. so I guess it wasn’t a surprise lol) and we went to church with his family.  After, we went back to his parents house for Easter brunch.

Later the rest of his family came over for dinner and we did the usual stuffing of faces until my food coma set in, at which point I ate a cupcake, naturally.  I pretty much ate and ran since I get up at 5 a.m. for work, but it was enough to get to visit with my soon-to-be new family.  I’m a pretty lucky girl, I know.  


Looking for eggs with this cutie pie

Oh, and I also drank my first glass of wine in 6 weeks.  I was actually dreaming in church about which bottle I wanted to open and am so proud of myself for making it that long.  All you pregnant ladies, I do not know how you do it.  

Now back to the grind and trying to work off those Easter treats this week ;)

  4. Baseball is about spring. Great photos and of course great food for Easter.

  5. You are so good for staining your deck on a day off. That is my least favorite thing to do in the world is help my parents paint their deck every year.

    1. You know, I thought it would be a lot worse than it was! It was a nice temperature though and we drank beer while painting, so I'm sure that helped.

  6. Sounds like a fun weekend! We did "adult" stuff around the house too on Friday! Feels good to see all that hardwork look great! xo

  7. I love the pink chevron shirt you wore on Easter! So pretty! Gotta love those married people projects! ;) Oh and festivals are fun too! :)
