weekend recap in photos!

hey guys! because a picture speaks a thousand words... here's my weekend recap in photos:

5-hour car rides each way are a bummer; however, this is my studly chauffer:

some things never change. i brought my laundry to my parents so i could get it done there. my brother brought his laundry to my parents so my mom would do it there. this resulted in a huge pile of dirty clothes that my mom and i tag-teamed:

i call this one "brothers and sisters and best friends". 
pictured below: my brother, his girlfriend, my hubs, and yours truly:
this picture was especially happy because it was warm enough to be barefoot on the deck for a limited amount of time. notice all the white stuff in the background.

we were at the adult-children table. no one complained due to its close proximity to the bar:

easter dinner of ham, beef wellington, au gratin potatoes, green bean casserole, and a citrus salad: 

i was reminded of a few things this weekend.
one, i truly enjoy my family. they are my best friends and i do not know what i would do without them.
two, it's ok to not be 'busy' sometimes. there was nothing better than having a weekend at the lake, full of total body and mind relaxation.
three, so what if our apartment isn't clean and we're eating leftovers for dinner. those things are not what really matters in life. what really matters is happiness, laughter, naps, doing nothing while watching DWTS, and getting in a workout. cleaning, balancing the budget, and putting away clean clothes can wait.
and four, my life is beautiful and i am extremely blessed.

how was your easter? i hope you had a great weekend!

stop back tomorrow for some healthy meal options that can be done in 15 minutes or less!


  1. I love all your pictures! I can't believe there is still snow on the ground there. It's April! Yikes!

    We are on day three now of leftovers!!! lol. Actually sounds pretty much exactly like my life. Putting clothes away, DWTS, cleaning, gym….I love my life too! We are very blessed!

    So glad you had a good weekend!
