It Was A Busy Weekend In A Great Weird Sort Of Way

While enjoying our unconventional Easter Dinner earlier today, I paused for a moment, exhaled slowly, and said, "This has been a very busy weekend, but in a weird and great sort of way." I could tell that Lisa completely understood because she replied with a simple, "Yes it has."

To back up a bit, Lisa worked 10-12 hour work days all last week. We were much better prepared than the week prior. That made all the difference.

When Lisa arrived home from work on Friday, I had a simple homemade dinner ready. We ate at the kitchen table while playing a few games of Yahtzee. After a little family snuggle time on the sofa, we went to bed early.

Yesterday morning, we were up at 7 a.m. and went about our usual morning routine. We sipped our coffee in the living room and chatted for about an hour. Then, Lisa took the kids out and fed them breakfast. I made Lisa a light breakfast.

I tackled some work stuff. Lisa finished up the laundry and did dishes.

Before heading out for our "date afternoon," I made a list of items we needed at several destinations.

Our "date afternoon" began with a fantastic lobster roll lunch at Hank's Dairy Bar. Then, we ventured to Home Depot for gardening supplies, potters for our indoor plants, soil, and wood. Our last stop was the grocery store.

Once home, Lisa worked on replanting most of our indoor plants, working on the outdoor flower gardens, and other small household projects. I caught up on more work stuff and finished up a few custom orders.

We enjoyed leftovers for dinner.

We got up around the same time this morning. Lisa took the kids out and fed them breakfast. I got a bunch of work stuff done and spent a little time in the Bodacious DIY Dog Mom Project Workshop. Lisa finished replanting and a couple of small projects around our home. Then, she enjoyed some down time on the sofa with our kids.

We also enjoyed the treats gifted to us over the Easter weekend. 

For the first time in a few years, we did not have plans or company over for Easter Dinner.

This year, we decided to step out of the box. We have a beautiful spiral ham in our freezer and all of the ingredients to make a traditional Easter Dinner.


It didn't happen. We weren't in the mood for traditional fare.

Instead, Lisa cooked steaks and shrimp on the grill. We also had shrimp cocktail, homemade cornbread, and a fruit salad.

The kids enjoyed steak, shrimp, and fresh fruit too.

It was out of this world delicious.

While eating dinner, we played Yahtzee.

We cleaned the kitchen together. Lisa did dishes.

We wrapped up our weekend with some family snuggle time on the sofa.

Total. Weekend. Bliss.
