Weekend Wind Down

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Easter is one of my favorite holidays because we get to celebrate that He is risen. Also, most often we spend it with family. We had a rather busy weekend. Friday we got to watch my childhood friend from kindergarten get married to someone I also consider a favorite friend. Their wedding was so perfect, so beautiful, and so much fun. Every last detail was stunning. Mike especially loved the fact that they served chicken fried steak with white gravy. And it was absolutely delicious too. I'm so glad I got to be apart in witnessing Brad & Chelsea unite. They both have a special place in my heart forever and ever. I received lots of compliments on my dress I wore, which was under $30. You can find out more details on the dress later on MN. I'll also have more photos of the wedding decor and venue when I share my dress. 
How beautiful was the bride, Chelsea!

As if partying until the early hours of the morning isn't crazy enough, we got up pretty early Saturday and headed to Louisiana for a crawfish boil with Mikes family. Of course there was an Easter egg hunt for the nieces and nephews. Addison found the giant golden egg this year that was full of candy and a 5 dollar bill. They had "the machine" (as everyone called it) on with frozen White Russians. I wasn't the only one that followed the "hair of the dog" trick. There was two cakes to celebrate Mike and his mothers past birthdays. The crawfish were yummy, as always, and it was just nice to visit with all the family. We ended the weekend Sunday by first, stopping to go to church with Mikes brother, and then having lunch with him and his niece before heading back home. I was so exhausted from all the traveling and wedding fun, that I think I fell asleep at about 7 pm last night.

I'm so thankful for the family and friends God has blessed me with, and even more thankful and blessed for the relationship that I have with Him. What did you do for Easter? And what was the highlight of your long weekend? Mine was the wedding fun (sorry family). There is nothing like a good party with friends you adore and haven't seen in forever. However, the memories made with all the children on Saturday was special too. I need to hurry up and wake up this morning because I have another busy week ahead of me and need to get to moving. Until next time loves...

  1. It's an excellent location, right in the heart of the city near public transportation. At Chicago wedding venues they have coat hangers right at the entrance where you can leave your coat, and a lobby where you can set up some cocktail tables.
