Easter Weekend Recap 2014

Good morning!!!

The first thing I want to say this morning is GOOD LUCK to anyone running the Boston Marathon today!!! :)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Mine was full of family and lots of sunshine…two things that make me very happy.

This weekend, I also ended up taking LOTS of pictures, so here is a recap with all of those photos.  Enjoy!

Friday

Friday, I headed over to Salon Orange Moon to visit my sister and get my hair done.   Thanks for the awesome hair, sis!

Saturday

Saturday morning started with a nice 6 mile run.

After coming home and shower, I couldn’t decide between oats or a smoothie for breakfast…so I made myself some egg white oats and I made Brian a smoothie so I could have a couple sips :)  Win, win.

Saturday afternoon, we headed over to Brian’s parent’s for Easter celebration number 1.  We enjoyed lots of yummy snacks like veggies and hummus.

Then, we got crafty and Adam (Brian’s brother) showed us how to make soap!

Mine is peppermint scented with sea salt mixed in.  I haven’t used it yet, but I thought the salt would be a good exfoliator!

Brian made his soap look like teeth!! Don’t they look good??

After soap making and snacking, more family came over and it was time for dinner.

Tuna steak, Brussels sprouts and a side salad.  Yum!

After breakfast, Brian and I got to work on getting our apartment ready to have my family over for our second Easter celebration.  Brian’s mom was kind enough to let me borrow a lot of her decorations.  So pretty!

I prepped the asparagus, salad, and salmon all before my family arrived.

After we were done with our appetizers, it was time to get the Easter egg hunt on!

Growing up, we always searched for eggs on Easter morning and Brian and I really enjoy keeping that tradition alive by hiding eggs for my family.  We set the timer to see how fast they could find all the eggs…

3:55 was the official time…!! So speedy!

After chatting for a bit more, it was time for our Easter Linner :)

After our yummy Easter meal of asparagus, salad, and salmon we walked around Mass Ave (a street with lots of local shops very close to our apartment) for a bit.  Brenna and her boyfriend had to leave, but my parent’s hung out for a bit more to enjoy some carrot cake and take a couple of pictures.

The sun was in our eyes BIG time…so squinty!

It was such a beautiful day (like sunny and 75 degrees!) so Brian and I headed out for a little bike ride to take advantage of the beautiful sun.

  1. Sounds and looks like a fabulous weekend w/ your family. Your sister did a wonderful job on your hair. It really must be awesome to have a sibiling whose a hair stylist. I thought it was the cutest thing that you & Brian hid Easter eggs for your family. Oh & girl, you should’ve had a smoothie & added oatmeal. Could’ve killed 2 birds w/ one stone :)
