Easter Happenings

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!!!  I sure did! I ended up sticking around school and celebrating the holiday with the boy and relaxing.

Easter is such a wonderful holiday that often gets overlooked.  The happenings of Holy week and Easter are incredible, and I started the day with a run reflecting on the holiday and what Jesus did for us that very weekend. INCREDIBLE!

After my run I got all fancied up for church (I forgot to take a picture, but I can guarantee you would have been blinded by my legs… first dress of the season!) Then I refueled with some cinnamon raisin bread w/ peanut butter and chia seeds with a side of apple sauce

We headed to church and then went home to make our Easter dinner! But first we exchanged cards and Easter baskets!

I got him an iron skillet (I know weird, but he wanted one, and so did I. BONUS) which we ended up using to cook Easter dinner! He bought me a pressure cooker… can you tell we like to cook together 🙂 He’s a keeper!

I quickly got to work on dinner, because both of our stomachs were growling quite loudly!

Sauteed green beans and mushrooms

Mashed Potatoes

Cast Iron skillet, used for his steak

His plate

My plate

It was a great meal and we had fun preparing it and eating together, celebrating the day! I may have eaten about 20 pieces of candy…..

I did some homework and may have napped…. okay I napped a lot, I blame it on the sugar coma.

It turned out to be a beautiful day, so we decided what better way to end the day than with a bonfire in his backyard!

And you can’t forget the smores!!!!

But, we didn’t have any chocolate so we had to improvise a little bit

I had my marshmallow inbetween two chocolate chip cookies

He used M&M's

It was a wonderful day! Filled with fun, way too much chocolate, and relaxation!

Which smore would you go with?

My favorite is classic a smore with PB on the graham crackers!

  1. Sounds like an awesome easter! I actually don’t like smores when they are cooked, I have a thing against melted marshmellows but I love all the ingrdients separately!!

  2. Aww, I love that you guys like to cook together! Christopher and I do too! The first time he put a kitchen appliance on his Christmas wish list (it was a rice cooker!) I just knew I was a lucky girl. 😉 But yeah, it’s so great to share a joy like that together!

    You two are SO cute! I love that you had a little bonfire and smores! I haven’t had a smores since I was an itty bitty girl. They need to make sugar free marshmallows, haha!
