Happy April! For those of you also living in "the North", you can surely appreciate what April means: Spring! The weather here has finally turned, and though I'm sure it'll rain a lot over the next month, it was so lovely last night that B and I were able to take a nice long walk.
I am very much looking forward to Easter this weekend. My family is getting together on Holy Saturday, so B and I are attending Mass and then brunch afterwards together Easter morning. I am really looking forward to spending this special day together. For Saturday, I'm making chocolate chip date cake, banana cream pie, and some sort of appetizer meatballs that my sister has requested. She had them at a friend's parent's home, and requested the recipe. The recipe seems simple, so I'm happy to make them for her!
I gave up pizza and fast food for Lent this year. I did have several Shamrock Shakes (more a fast "beverage") however. I've given up fast food and pizza in previous years, and I always make the exception of the shakes because they are only offered during Lent! Should I feel guilty about this? Hmm. I didn't cheat at all by having pizza or fast food though, and I am very proud of myself. B also gave these things up, and he didn't cheat either! Maybe on Sunday night we'll order a pizza?
I'm also having a day of beauty tomorrow: hair, nails, pedicure, eyebrows, and lunch with my bestie. She is currently living at a hotel! She and her husband have listed their townhouse, and figured it would be easier to move out while its on the market. I can't wait to see her suite...I might want to move in too! :)
I wish you all a wonderful weekend, and blessed Easter. This is the most important weekend in the Christian year, and I've made a commitment to myself to spend sometime praying and thanking God for saving me and blessing me. The more I live, the more I see all the blessing both large and small, and I am so grateful. I hope everyone has a few moments this weekend to say thank you too.
