Easter Weekend Recap

Happy Easter!

Today is such a great day! Bunnies, colors, great food aside, this is a day filled with the greatest love of all. The day that Jesus rose from the dead.... dying so that we may live. I feel so blessed to know the true meaning of Easter.

Weekend rewind.....

After my great day at Universal, I headed over to Meg and James' house for dinner. They have a beautiful little baby, David. I couldn't wait to go over and see the little guy. We talked, played with the baby, talked, ate some dinner, talked, and then ate dessert. It was so great.

I had such a great time that I forgot to get out the camera to try to snap some pictures of David at 5 3/4 months. He's so stinkin cute.

Thanks Meg and James for a wonderful evening!! I love you guys!

Saturday, I joined E for a remote from the YMCA. They were having Easter egg hunts. We hung out for a while there. Once it was over, we went to lunch. He encouraged me regarding "the guy." Plus, he's just great, so I had a good time.

I went to go find some shoes for my Easter sundress. On E's suggestion, I went to Rack Room (I'd planned to go to Payless) and found exactly what I was looking for!

With shoes in hand, I treated myself to a mani and pedi. I swear, a good mani/pedi is further proof that God is love.

Then, I got to go over and chill with three of my favorite people ever.... Evan, Emma, and Abby. Their parents had date night, while we had Miss Jessica night. I seriously love those children. They were SO excited about Easter, so getting them to bed was actually easy.... Get to bed so the Easter bunny can come!

I got great girl talk in with their mom Mia (Megs sister.... I love that family deeply) once she got home. She's the big sister I don't have.

This morning, I got up early, prettied myself up, and headed to church. After an awesome.... truly AWESOME... service, I went home. A few of my friends from work don't have family in town, so they came over for Easter dinner. We had a great dinner with lots of laughs and friends.

Overall, a fantastic weekend!

Happy Easter everyone!!
