SO what did I do:
1. First and foremost.....had the most wonderful, enjoyable Easter at my Grandma/pa's house. Both are 83 and they still prepared the majority of the meal for nearly 40 people. I LOVE THEM so much! We had amazing food (no one ever will compete with their pork cutlets, kolaches and dressing!). I'm very very blessed.
2. Was awoken at 6:04am to see if the bunny had arrived.
3. Ate my first piece of chocolate at 6:10am.
4. Actually captured a few pics of the baskets and treats (to be posted later tonight or tomorrow)
5. Pretty sure I ate my weight in food; including only ONE Reese's egg. Twix was my craving of choice this year.
6.. Went for a great walk with my daughters and my dog (thank goodness that worked off 10 of the 3500 calories I consumed!)
7. enjoyed great conversation with my grandma, aunts and cousins.
8. and finally......rode in the back seat for the final 5 miles AFTER H puked not once, not twice, but three times.........little smokies, mashed potatoes and chocolate........oh my..............poor baby. (pretty sure this was karma getting me back for 'forgetting' to color eggs)
At the end of it all....pretty sure that my successes and failures evened out.
That's what I'm going to believe at least.
Hope everyone had a blessed Easter!
