Another Holiday Gone

Nothing like a spontaneous week long blog hiatus, right? Seriously, I don't even know what happened, I just never posted last week. Oops! I think I was just too focused on making it through the week and onto my long weekend with my family! I really wanted to take Thursday off of work and extend my weekend a little longer, butttt that didn't happen. Regardless, I still had a wonderful holiday!

Since I had to work Thursday I got to my mom's that night and we all watched Frozen together. My little brother was SO excited when he found out I brought it with me, he even turned down an offer for a sleepover with his friend! My other brother is not as fun, and I barely saw him all weekend. Stinker.

On Friday my mom was babysitting my little cousin, Mallory, who's four. She wore me out! We played with the cats, we jumped on the trampoline, we played hopscotch, we colored eggs... and she still didn't think we played enough! She is such a hoot, and I had a blast spending the day with her.

And because that apparently wasn't enough for me, I headed over to my dad's in the afternoon to visit with them and give my sisters their Easter baskets. In case you just arrived at this party, my sisters are 4 and 6, and they always wear me out. I put together baskets for them this year, and it was so much fun. I can't wait to have my own babies to shop for! I got them each an outfit and then filled their baskets with toys and treats from the dollar store. I absolutely love the baskets I found for them!

On Saturday we had our family Easter dinner. Every year it seems like less and less people come over, so this year Mom decided to do it on Saturday so everyone could go visit the other side of their families without missing ours. Last year it rained on Easter, and I was really glad the weather was nice this year so we could do the egg hunt outside. It's so fun to see all my little cousins running around the yard hunting for eggs :)

Nellie found the most eggs

Both for my cousins and for my sister's baskets, I made bunny shaped crayons! It was so easy and I absolutely love the way they turned out. The kids loved them, too!

Sunday was just a lazy day. Since we'd already celebrated Easter we didn't do a lot on the actual holiday, which was fine by me. I needed the relaxation. Mom and I went for a walk to enjoy the weather, and we watched an entire season of Melissa & Joey in our PJ's. #NoShame

How was your holiday weekend?

  1. I LOVE melissa and Joey! Is it on Netflix?

  2. Those crayons turned out so cute! What a great idea!

  3. Melissa & Joey is surprisingly good. But MJH has always been a favorite of mine.

  4. Sounds like such a great weekend! You're so creative, those baskets and crayons are awesome. Oh and I finally saw Frozen for the first time this weekend myself... I'd cancel plans to watch it again too! #kidatheart over here :) Happy Easter!

  5. 4 and 6...that would wear the Energizer bunny out!!

    I spent easter eating Chinese takeout with my roommate. No tears this year, so it was a positive, as my mom reminded me it was my LAST holiday away from home! YAY
