Hello friends! My days have been filled lately with work, errands, work, Easter prep, and work! Whew! I hope everyone had a Happy Easter Sunday!

It began VERY early it seemed for us.  Like it was Christmas Big girl comes in our room at barely 7 am to ask if it was time to see if the Easter Bunny had come! Ha! I had to go wake up Baby girl just so we could see!

They had a blast! Not only did the Easter Bunny find our house, but Pepaw came armed with donuts and baskets, and my Mom too! We now have enough candy and chocolate bunnies to feed a small army!!

I did not partake in the donut massacre, but lots of coffee ensued, in an Easter mug though to keep it festive.  Some toast with strawberry preserves and an egg and sausage stuffed thingy was my breakfast.

Lunch yesterday was simple and easy because we were having my Mom and Eddie over for dinner.

I had brussels, broccoli both steamed a slice of toast with my newest fav…Almond butter!  Wow!  This stuff is good!   I LOVE almonds but the cost of almond butter has always prevented me from buying some.  I got a jar on sale this week at the store though!  So good!

Dinner was my Mom’s eggplant parmesan.  She made it with sliced eggplant, chicken breast, provolone, and alfredo sauce!  Yummy!

B and I contributed with roasted veggies (potatoes, summer sqaush, and fresh green beans) and of course deviled eggs!

We ended the evening by going on a family walk around the neighborhood and blowing bubbles in the front yard!  It was an awesome day!

Breakfast this Monday morning was multi grain hot cereal, with strawberries and almond butter:

When I got to work, I discovered my Ipod was dead!  Fail!  Sux to work out in the TV-less gym with no tunes!!  So I went on an outdoor 1 mile walk/run!  I am no hero so in my little 20 minutes I get each morning I just did the 1 mile and was happy!  Go me!

I had a cup of Fage 0% and Naturals Honeyful Wheat cereal.

Lunch was a partial repeat from yesterday except no toast, but I added carrots.

Mmmm, mustard sprouts!

My afternoon snacking was a small Red Delicious and a hard-boiled egg.

I’m sure my co-workers were thrilled with the smells of my broccoli, brussel sprouts, and egg today!

Dinner was also a repeat from yesterday!  Leftovers!

I think I will get ready for bed though and call it a night tonight!  We leave for OKC this weekend for Big Girl’s Tae Kwan Do tournament!  I am looking forward to the mini-cation that will present itself while we’re gone!  Road Trip!!!

Yesterday the family and I went to an Easter egg hunt put on by the city.  The weather was gorgeous and there were a TON of people!  Both girls were pumped and ready to load up their baskets with eggs strewn about. 

But with so many kids it was crazy!  When they said GO it was a mass frenzy and Big girl had her heart set on one of about 5 stuffed Easter bunnies out for grabs that she didn’t pick up any eggs!  She did not get a bunny, so when she realized all the eggs were gone in about 2.2 seconds the tears came up!  Thankfully another little girl gave her some of the eggs she collected so Big girl would have some.

We then did some grocery shopping before heading over to my Dad’s house for some more Easter fun!  I failed to take a pic, but he grilled up some of the best burgers I have had in a long time!  I love homemade burgers, they are the absolute greatest! 

For dessert we indulged in some vanilla ice cream and peanut butter chocolate chip cookies! 

The girls then got busy coloring Easter eggs and then they got to partake in a “real” Easter egg hunt!  They had a great time at their Grandpa’s house!

It felt so nice to be outside in the sun!  I think I even came home a little less translucent! 

It was a very windy day!  We had such a fun afternoon! 

I started my day yesterday with some oatmeal, sugar-free strawberry preserves, flaxseed, cinnamon, and almonds.  Breakfast fuel to keep up with the Easter egg hunting fools!

And for dinner we decided to keep it simple and made homemade pizzas!  We used flat bread and sort of dressed our own.  My pizza included spinach, mushrooms, red bell pepper, and sliced Canadian bacon on the bottom.  You can’t really see it.  B and the girls both had turkey pepperoni and Canadian bacon on theirs.

Last night’s dessert was a yogurt mess of course!  I used 1/2 cup of Fage 0% i picked up on special at Kroger yesterday!  I scored an awesome deal, the entire 2 cup container was only $3.79!  I grabbed two!  I mixed with some Carmel Delight Fiber One, raisins, and some of B’s chocolate Fro-yo.  Ben & Jerry’s I think! 

 

It was a fun-filled Saturday!  The kind of day you wished you had every weekend.  I am totally loving the warmer weather and can’t wait to get some yard work done too!  Hooray for Spring!
