I hope everyone had an awesome Easter this past weekend!
My Easter weekend left me tired and exhausted. I had to work on Saturday like always but I managed to leave a little early and get home around 3. I was greeted at the door by my wife and daughter with smiles on their faces. The house smelled good with steaming posts coming from the stove. Then my mother-in-law and her husband came around the corner and greeted me. My mother-in-law is an amazing cook and was making me one of my favorite dishes which is cube steak and gravy. It is an amazing dish and goes great with some mashed potatoes and green beans.
After stuffing my face with most likely too much food to the point where I sat miserably on the couch, we sat and enjoyed some light conversation over pieces of red velvet cake and coffee. It was too much for me around nine and I had to get some sleep. We had to get up and go to church in the morning.
Easter Sunday finally came and BrittWhitFun and I got up and got all of the Easter Bunny gifts out and waited for K-Dub to wake up. Once she did we gave her the Easter basket we spent almost a month making. She smiled and tried to put most of the stuff in her mouth. We got her some sidewalk chalk, a bubble gun, and some sand toys but no candy cause she is a little too young for a sugar rush.
We then all got dressed which was a task all in itself. I tried on five pairs of pants before I found a pair that fit me due to my extreme weight loss. It felt good but I was starting to get in a hurry. You could tell that I don’t wear dress up clothes very often. They were wearing me. We all gathered in the living room and then walked outside in the front yard and made some family photos. Then we told my mother-in-law and her husband goodbye, as the had stayed overnight, and we headed to church.
After church we came home and but K-Dub down for a nap, while we almost took one too. Soon it was time to get up and make two pans of my not so but almost famous mac and cheese and head to my sister-in-law’s house for Easter dinner. So we got K-Dub up and changed into outfit number two and got in the car.
My sister-in-law, Kate had her house decorated in Easter decor it looked great. My brother-in-law invited his parents over and they made this barbeque that would make you want to slap your mother! We had so much food that included hash brown casserole, cole slaw, deviled eggs, and rolls. I had not choice but to happily cheat on my diet and eat like it was no one’s business. After dinner we enjoyed some amazing italian love cake and the kids went outside for pictures while the rest of nursed our full stomachs on the couch.
Soon it was time to head to the house to get K-Dub to bed. I had to roll off the couch to get to the car. Once we got home he had what can only be named as the worse night in the history of me being a parent. I will explain everything tomorrow. All and all Easter was great. I enjoyed spending time with my family and I did make my yearly day after Easter trip to Target for some great discounted Reese’s Eater Eggs. Those things are the highlight of my spring. I want one right now.
