Weekend Recap: Easter

Happy Monday! I hope you guys had a wonderful Easter! Since my weekends are typically pretty routine I don’t want to bore you with lame weekend recap posts. However, since this weekend was a holiday I had a little bit more fun. So I thought I’d share with you guys what happened 🙂

Earlier in the week I watched “The Passion of Christ” on Netflix. If you’ve never seen it I highly recommend it! It is rated R for heavy violence that at times can be hard to watch. As a follower of Jesus, Easter is so special to me. Today is the day I celebrate my savior dying for me on the cross and then rising from the dead. God is amazing.

 

New Television

On Friday my grandma got a new television for her bedroom, so guess who got her old one? Me! I know I shouldn’t be so excited considering I hardly ever watch tv. I’m more of an internet and books kinda girl. But, my old tv was big, bulky and really old. So my room looks much more 21st century now. I love it!

 

Egg Coloring

Easter egg coloring is a tradition in my family no matter how old you are. So we spent out Saturday afternoon singing random songs and coloring eggs. We always write each others names on them, and put on cute stickers too. It’s such a fun thing do to, but it can get messy. I’m really clumsy and always end up getting dye on my hands… Oops!

 

Easter Day

Easter morning began with coffee (of course) and then my Easter basket. I know I’m a teenager, but I think you’re never too old for an Easter basket. I told my family I want to get one until I’m at least 25. We’ll see if they play along 😉 This year I got so many sweet gifts and I’m so grateful. I have a lovely family who showers me with way more that I need. I got a salted caramel candle that smells so good. I love anything sugary/sweet when it comes to candles!!

It started to rain about 2 p.m. and by 3:30 it was a down pour. A lot of restaurants were closed, but thankfully Red Lobster was open. So (after a 25 minute wait) my mom, grandma, aunt, uncle, and I ran inside and grabbed a table. We were drenched with rain, but thankfully the restaurant was nice and warm. I got the shrimp linguini without the shrimp. It’s my usual order and it was AMAZING! I love their cheddar bay biscuits! Food heaven *heart eyes*

 

That was pretty much all this weekend wrote. It was fairly busy, but totally fun. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter if you celebrate. If not, I hope you still had a wonderful weekend! Thanks for reading this post. I’ll talk to you guys soon ❤
