It's a little late but I hope you all had a good Easter/Whatever-You-Celebrate/Long Weekend. We had a house full of soon to be in-laws so things were busy and I just didn't feel the need to blog. I did take some pictures for a recap.
First some Alberta sky from our long 8 hour drive home.
Next is just an example of some of the crazy shit hauled on Hwy 63.
|This is not the largest we've seen. We'll take the ditch no problem.|
A big jiggity big Thank you to Sandra from Absolutely Narcissism. This totally made me smile and Kidlet was all over it like a dirty shirt. We particularly enjoyed the smelly pencils (Cotton Candy?! Fuck YEAH!). She's a hilarious blogger and she's kind too. Plus she has rock hard abs apparently.
One other that was waiting for me was a hairy beast ready for some snuggles.
|ffft of course I was talking about the dog.|
Thursday was a whirlwind of massage, chiro, ritualistic pub lunch, and grocery shopping. Then I was left alone to prep dinner for Kagey.
|Lemon Pepper Zucchini, Rosemary Ranch Chicken, and Hawaiian Chicken.|
|Striploin with Soy based Marinade|
Also we've texted since then so it's safe to assume she did not end up in the hospital with salmonella. *whew*
Friday the guests arrived but
Then I also had Snaggletooth pick me up right after I was done. Don't get me wrong, Manfriend's family is great it's just I wanted a little 'Me' time and some unwinding with my bestie. Also I didn't have to cook dinner or lift a finger. Total Win-Win! I have to give Manfriend props as he took the dog for a walk and brought me a home made burger, BlueBerry Vodka Soda, and Green Apple Freezie. Ok the last item was from Kidlet but how lucky am I?! That's what a great Friday is made out of.
Since everyone was leaving on Friday we did Easter dinner on Saturday.
First I have to look the part.
This wicked apron is from Sassy Apron . BEST APRONS EVER! I know to some that's an odd thing to say but you know what? I love cooking and I like to look damn cute while I'm dong it. Oh yeah, we're bringing the Apron back!
In case you cared, dinner turned out awesome and it was the first Easter dinner I've cooked. Also it was the first time I cooked for his family. No one died. SUCCESS.
So back to being vain and selfish...I got my nails done and she did a wicked job.
I'm sure you guys out there prolly couldn't give a rats arse but hey, I get to strut my stuff once in awhile
Sunday was filled with tunes blaring from the truck, beers in our hands, and cleaning up the yard. I. Love. Spring.
I also love having minions.
Annnnd I kinda love this guy. Sorta.
Next weekend is going to be AWE-some because I get to play in the dirt and put pretty things in the ground. Yes I know it's simple but I live for these things. Especially when I spend 10 days straight living here:
I want some pretty flowers when I'm home. I just want to look at any colour other than brown before I burn my corneas with my straightener.
One last thing I wanted to share for you hockey fans out there.
