Easter Brunch 2014

Easter this year was pretty amazing! Great weather, great family, great food. I think this year was also pretty special. Not only was I diagnosed with kidney cancer, but my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer (the same day I had surgery) Needless to say, our family had a great time just being with each other, laughing, and bonding 🙂


Andrew and I started our morning with a small egg hunt and his Easter basket.


(He got a watch, a new book, a airplane toy, and a few small treats)

Then an Easter breakfast of eggs, pancakes, and bacon

Even Andrew’s new friend joined us 🙂


We then headed to my aunt and uncle’s house for brunch. With our delicious treats with us

Then it was time for the egg hunt


They got them all within a few minutes


Not too shabby


A great day 🙂 Andrew and I then went home and went on a small bike ride. I am in love with this weather!

Question for you:

How was your weekend?



Easter Bunny

Yesterday was a busy whirl wind of a day, but amazing just the same.

The day started with a visit from the Easter bunny right here in our own living room


Andrew’s basket had all types of goodies


After church, we headed to my aunt and uncle’s for brunch

And more Easter egg hunting

Question for you:

What did you get from the Easter bunny?

Easter a day early

Today revolved around getting ready for Easter. Andrew and I first dyed eggs.

Just 1 packet of kool-aid and 2/3 cup of water. I found it on pinterest 🙂

This was my favorite

Next, was an Easter egg hunt at the park by our house. There were several first class kids there as well.

He is one cool dude haha

Then I went to help my mom cook for tomorrow. The kitchen Before



And this is only about 1/10th of what we made. I’m beat!

Question for you:
what are you doing for Easter?

Easter Egg Wreath

The past week has been a little rough. Today started out with cartoons w/ Andrew, but then I went to church. A great new church with my friend Chrissy. Her son is in school with Andrew.  And while there, I started crying. No joke. I have been really stressed about a lot of things. I am still exhausted, and this weight is not coming off. I am feeling overwhelmed.

Onto happier things. I ate alot better today and I even got in a pinterest project (and much faster and easier than the bathroom idea haha)

My brother’s girlfriend Melissa and I both wanted to do this wreath project!

First row

second row

Then place a few on top to cover holes

Final step is to place grass into spaces

Andrew took the picture of Melissa’s.

With his three star wars Easter Eggs haha

Ready for Easter

Question for you:
