I don’t think I’ve ever blogged this early…and it makes me feel so awkward. I feel that it’s been a while since my last SimplyMe post and there’s a reason for that: My life has literally been the same. Nothing too big has happened, but I thought I’d share how our Easter Sunday went! I had a little fun playing with my Canon Rebel SL1 so this was a pretty much the ultimate test day for me. So, let’s begin:
Well, I’ve come to the conclusion that not all families go all out for Easter. I mean, I typically work on Easter Sunday but this year I ended up having it off so I was trying to make plans with mine and Anthony’s family. We decided to go to church first thing in the morning and it ended up being a pretty good word. We were supposed to leave a little early, but we ended up talking until we were 30 minutes behind schedule. Whoops. Afterwards, we drove straight to my house and oh lord, the smell of food was fantastic.
We came through the door and my sister and her boyfriend were already there! I love it when the fam-band comes together…though, my brother couldn’t make it. (I was a bit sad about that, truthfully.) Well, within the first minute I come in, my sister yells for me to come and check out mine and Anthony’s Easter Basket. It was too cute! My parents made mini baskets with cute paper cups, paper grass, and jelly beans resembling eggs. They also stuffed a Cheesecake Factory & AMC Movies gift cards. My mom said she wanted us to have a date night for Easter! Awww, thank you Mom & Dad. 🙂
Within a half hour, all the food was prepped and ready to eat! So yummy. We had mac ‘n’ cheese, mashed potatoes, ham, cauliflower casserole, biscuits, collards, deviled eggs, and even chocolate cake! It was a dangerous day to be on a diet…and trust me, I ate it ALL. My stomach was all sorts of excited and the aftermath, of course, was the ultimate food coma! Anthony and I had to take a legit nap after that meal.
Overall, the time spent with my family was amazing. Lots of laughs and love which is always so special to me. After we woke up from our nap, we said our goodbye to my family and drove back to Anthony’s house! Unfortunately, his brother and sister in law were out so we couldn’t say hi to them. BUT his nieces were home along with his mom, so we hung out with them for the rest of the night! It was so cute to watch them run around, but they had so much energy and we were still recovering from our food coma.
That pretty much sums up our Easter Sunday! We really wanted to relax and chill out and we ended up doing just that. I was so happy to see everyone and eat all that food. It was just awesome and ideal. It also made me wonder what Anthony and I would be doing for Easter when we finally move in and get married. I hope we will have the same family gatherings.
That is it for today’s post! I hope you all enjoyed it and let me know if you enjoyed the pictures!! We had a blast taking them and we loved capturing all of the moments. Also…
