Happy sugar coma

Hi friends, I figured with the overload of candy from yesterday, we’re all barely able to make it through today. I only slightly acknowledge what the real “holiday” is today, but I’m not a fan of ‘fools’ so I choose the sugar coma instead. I have to say, I’m thankful my mom gave me only a handful of the jelly belly jelly beans, because oh boy, I couldn’t stop eating them on the way home yesterday. My teeth were hurting from all that sugar, if that says anything.

Tell me your parents still give you Easter baskets too?!

I actually hit the mother load this weekend. Not only did I get some yummy treats surrounded by grass, I also got a Cuisinart food processor! Excitement abounding over here!! Plus my lovely mom made me a rice heating pad. You know, a towel stuffed with rice, sewn into 3 rectangles.. best thing in the world. Both with follow me to the ends of the earth. Best. gifts. ever.

Saturday, I understood all new moms with their phones. I couldn’t stop taking photos of my newest niece. I would say I took close to 50 photos of her (where 95% were of her sleeping) and 2 videos, all in a span of 4 hours. It only showed me that I will fully be ‘one of those’ moms you’ll see on Instagram. Just warning you now if you’re still around when that day comes.

She slept happily on my lap before dinner, through dinner and after dinner. It was bliss! I think I’ll be producing some ultra clingy kids in the future, if I can’t even put my niece down for her nap, I don’t even want to think about how I’ll be with my own kids.

It was so nice getting to see my family again. Spending time with them and eating great food. Going to church with my parents, and making a delicious Easter meal together. It was a great weekend where it was more of a mental memory than a photographic one. Despite my constant niece photos, I left my actual camera alone and enjoyed everyone around me.

How did your Easter weekend turn out?

Pin It Now!

Aww! She's a beauty alright =D I wish I could send you all my jelly beans, since I'm not a fan (I go nuts over the chocolate eggs though). I gotta pretty awesome Easter basket too... because a person is never too old to get a Easter basket!
