easter weekend

So I am feeling a bit depressed because school vacation week is over, which means my alarm is going to go off at 6am tomorrow and I am probably going to yell something I don't want to say here, snooze it one too many times, and be rushing out the door (a normal morning for me - I am NOT a morning person).  That's ok though because I have started applying to new schools and I am nervous/excited for what the new school year will bring!

Here is a little Easter weekend recap:

Friday night I didn't do much of anything. I was in a real funk, and couldn't make a decision to go here or there, or do anything at all. So I made myself some pizza and watched about 6 reruns of Sex & the City.

Naan, edamame, avacado, arugula and sprinkled goat cheese baked in the oven at 350 degress for 10 minutes... viola! It was a bit of a green/cheesy mess, but delish nonetheless!

  Saturday morning (or should I say afternoon by the time I rolled out of bed) I watched mom make a red velvet cake with my Poppy's cream cheese frosting. We were looking over the recipe card and admiring his handwriting, laughing at his spelling errors, and just missing him altogether. The cake (which we dove into today) was to die for! Mom loves making cakes because it allows her to use the cake plate, which doubles as a punch bowl!, that I got her for her birthday last year. This thing is cool, I kind of want one.

It was rainy and disgusting out so my sister and I decided to color Easter eggs with dye and sparkles. We made lots of bright and cheery colors, and put them in a bowl as the centerpiece on the table. We also treated ourselves to pedicures and some sister bonding time :)

 McKenna's 1st Easter! She wore the most adorable little sleeveless dress and matching bloomers. 

 I held her, all wrapped up in blankets for a long time. I was calling it her little nest because she looked like a baby bird in a nest. So darling.

The best piggy toes.

Time to catch some zzz's and pray I make it through this week. Lots to do! I want to send my resume out to some more schools and get my butt back to the gym! 
Have a good week!
