Wow what a break I had!
I mean, the weather was crappy except for one day. And I didn't leave my house much, but I had a fabulous time off. I seriously can quite easily be a stay at home mom when I have a baby or heck, a stay at home wife! Haha
I took half the day off the Thursday before Easter to get my hair done.
Usually I wouldn't do that, but I made my appointment last minute and that was all she had before leaving for 2 weeks for vacation, so I had to!
We went with my mom to Xina - which is freakin AMAZING before heading to Holy Thursday mass.
I painted my nails a crazy pink color - cajun shrimp ....
Ted was off on Friday with me.
We had to take a ride out to western Jersey to sign a tax paper we forgot about.
We had some pasta Friday night and called it an early night.
Saturday I baked my ears off...
|Bundt Cake - with ganache before white icing and before the oven incident|
We went to my cousins house for an "Easter egg and peep dipping party"
Then headed home to check on our pets, and scoop up what I made for the last Devils game of the season party (although it wasn't technically)
I made: Beer Bread, Jalapeno Popper Dip, Chocolate Devils, Ham & Cheese Pinwheels and Shay's Cadbury Egg Bundt Cake....
Saturday night we partied hard with our Devils family in our friends amazing Devils Den.
He is seriously a #1 fan for sure!! Haha
Then Easter Sunday was upon us.
I woke up late - and rushed around to get everything together for my Aunt's house.
I turned the oven on to pre-heat it to cook the pinwheels....
It beeps. It's ready.
I open the oven door.
There is my bundt cake.
I forgot that Saturday night I stuck it in the oven covered in plastic so the damn cat didn't eat the plastic wrap (she's so weird)
So I had to throw it away. I was so upset. I cried.
The house smelled like melted plastic. It was awful.
We had Brunch at my Aunts.
An Egg hunt at my cousins for the kiddos
Dinner at my in-laws
We were happy to be home early to chill after the 5 stops in 2 days!
And silly me - I didn't take ONE pic!
Monday through Friday was pretty low key.
I hung with my mama (who got an amazing new car!)
We discussed the possibility of going to Texas
I made a trip to Hobby Lobby with my friend Katie
I got a sweet care package from Manda in Texas
My two shirts from Tara Lynns came in!
I made Chicken Pasta Primavera (Look for the recipe Thursday!)
I had lunch with my hubby - which I haven't done during the work week in over 3 years
I sifted through a bag of trail mix to feed a homely looking squirrel
We had a house showing! (No Offer :( )
I made brownies that were exceptionally delicious
We fixed up my Bug Eye
We ate at our favorite Mexican place 10th Avenue Burrito
We went to Smithville for a car show with the whole family on Saturday
We went over our friends house Saturday night to watch another Devils game and my allergies were killing me. I snuggled with their pups
We took a drive Sunday to enjoy the sun (but it was still chilly)
Got into bed early and ready to get back to the grind!
Lucky me - My hubby said he wanted to order in last night so I didn't have to cook!
We have dinner plans with friends tonight and tomorrow is one of the last 3 CCD classes of the year....Dinner with my in-laws on Thursday and then it's the weekend again!
Stop back tomorrow when I link up with Heather and Elizabeth to share my
Have a great day!!
