Ok I didn't exactly hang out with the Easter bunny this weekend, but I did get in a good amount of friend and family time.
My weekend highlights included:
~Getting a fresh cut and color on Thursday afternoon
~Busted out the deck furniture out of Winter storage
~Having MG's family and my best friend come into town Thursday night and grilled out on the deck for dinner
~Finished our taxes and thankfully are getting money back--there was a time we thought we might owe. Phew!
~A visit from my dad in my dreams for the second time, which made me smile when I woke up
~A beautiful funeral service for my dad at Quantico National Cemetery with full military honors. It was an incredibly emotional, but beautiful day. So many friends showed up to show us love and support, along with family. It was incredible. I think my dad would have approved of the service.
~Celebration of Life memorial and luncheon afterwards where we socialized, shared stories about my dad and read the letters that we'd written to him
~Family left town in the early evening and then MG and I went out to dinner with my best friend and his best friend and fiance and tried out a new restaurant in Old Town which was really delicious
~Back to the house for a sleepover with our best friends
~Saturday morning brunch with our friends followed by some cherry blossoms and a low key afternoon
~Put our new Spring bedding onto the bed--love that the color in the pattern totally matches our walls. Overstock for the win!
still need to find something to go above the bed....
~Early to bed since we were both exhausted from all of the activities from the previous days
~Sunday morning errands and about 9 loads of laundry from all of the towels and sheets used over the weekend.
~Went to an Easter brunch at my friends' house with so much delicious food and yummy drinks. It was so fun to celebrate with good friends.
~Mid afternoon walk to work off some of the delicious brunch food and bloody mary's/mimosas #oops
~Finished the book Ive been reading for the last week and started another one (review coming soon!)
~Made dinner and had a low key rest of the night
Today I'm back to work, but at least it's a teacher workday so I'm easing back into the work week. This weekend was tough, but it was eased by having so many friends and family around to support us and love us. Thank you for your prayers last Friday and during the weekend--they were so appreciated!
I hope you had a nice, fun-filled weekend!
