Ok, so I know the past couple posts have been a little boring and i didn’t talk at all about what i was doing this weekend. Well, there was a reason! We were heading to New Orleans Friday morning, and Saturday night my sister’s husband was throwing her a surprise birthday dinner at a really nice restaurant. So, we went to great lengths for her to not know we were coming into town! It was kind of hard, and stressful! I called her Friday, her actual birthday, and told her how sorry I was that we were not going to be able to come in town, blah blah blah. She was clueless! We got to NOLA Friday afternoon and wnet to the casino buffet with my parents. It was so hard to rememebr not to blog, twitter, or FB post about where I was or what I was doing!
Saturday we hung out at my parents house, I did the eliptical and some arm weights, and we had to tell a few white lies to my sister to get her to not stop by my parents house! Then Saturday night we all went out to the nice dinner and she shwoed up with her husband thinking it was just them, but it was my parents, us, and her husband’s family. We had a good time then went to my sister’s house for cake and ice cream. Sorry I don’t have any pictures!
Sunday morning we went to church and ate a huge wonderful Easter lunch at my parent’s house. We were so full after! It was beautiful out, so we ate dessert outside, and then Bobby and I drove home about 3:00 yesterday. Happily, I am off work today! It was been so nice. I got up and ran. Unfortunately, I waited till it was in the 70’s temp. wise, and I had eaten too much…so i was nauseated…I only did 2 miles but I ran a 9:30 pace, so i was really happy about that!
oh, also,we dyed Easter eggs at our house last weekend, and I thought I would share some pictures.
I call Bella “Bella Stink” or “stinky” because she is bad, or a stinker, so the name stuck!
Easter morning before church. We don’t look awake!
QOTD: Have you ever had a surprise party?
That was so nice of you to surprise your sister!!! Your dress is super cute that you wore on Easter!
thanks! She was so surprised.
love the dress — too sassy!
thanks! I got it in the Juniors department. I don’t want to grow up!
Great job keeping the secret! I am glad she was surprised! The Easter eggs look great!
How fun! I love surprises! I’m glad she didn’t find out about it! :0)
The Easter eggs are cute, too! Great job!
QOTD: For my 27th birthday (my golden birthday) last year, my friends threw me a surprise birthday party at OCharleys after church on Wednesday night! It was SO much fun!! :0)
Oh ya Karen I remember seeing pictures of that!
Sounds like you had a great time. Your dress is super cute!
Great job on the two miles/pace. That is awesome! How is the hip pain?
thanks! I totally meant to post about that! I think it was just a fluke bc I was running pretty hard yesterday and no pain. I even forgot I was trying to “look for that pain” until my run was almost over! yay!

I love decorating eggs! Yours are beautiful. Painting each egg is a great idea.
thanks! we got these new things this year, they were like color sticks, Q-tips with color inside and you could paint the eggs, it was cool!
