Easter weekend.

Last weekend was such a perfect weekend.
I recapped everything we did with my mom just yesterday and she said,
"You two have such a fun life". It's true, we do.
For now, it's just the two of us with minimal responsibilities and it's pretty nice.

Friday night we went to Red Robin with the Leishmans.
I don't know what's wrong with me but I obsess over Red Robin's steak fries and campfire sauce.
They are all you can eat and addictive. Here's the catch: you can't get them on their own.
So I ordered the cheapest thing the fries come with, a chicken sandwich.
I ignored the sandwich and stuffed myself with fries and sauce. Totally unhealthy but no regrets.

Saturday we met up with my sister and her boyfriend for lunch.
Do you love garlic burgers? Do you love bar food? (No, that's not a weird question... I love bar food.)
Go to Busy Bee Bar on State Street and 21st south. Their burgers are delicious
and I'd been raving about them since Kelsey was too young to go.
She's been 21 for several months but we finally made a lunch date.
Again, they did not disappoint.

After lunch, Mike and I ran some errands and then picked up the Kirks for a Real game.
I'll be honest though... The guys watched the game but Jade and I didn't.
I hadn't seen her for 7 weeks (who's counting?) while they were basically living in Hawaii
so we had lots to catch up on.
I normally LOVE watching the games so missing both the goals scored
was not a proud moment for me.

Easter Sunday was fantastic!
Church could not have been better. We listened to two amazing speakers and then President Eyring decided to fill the last 10 minutes of the meeting. I found myself crying 5 or 6 times at church on Sunday. That's just not right! Actually, who am I kidding? It's pretty right on. I've always been emotional. But the messages delivered on Easter Sunday are especially touching. The holiday has a way of reminding me of the obvious.
I have a Savior who loves me enough to suffer for my sins. He died that I might turned to live with my Father in Heaven and all those I love. I know there was no other way and for that -- I'm completely indebted to Him.
After church, we went to my grandparent's house for an Easter egg hunt and dinner.

It's great to have weekends where we can do whatever we'd like and enjoy each other's company.
We live for the weekends because we know it won't be like this forever.
I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!
