Happy Easter everyone!
I hope you all had a lovely day.
We certainly did.
A trip to church followed by homemade brunch and a nap was just what we needed to start our week off right.
On a sad note while eating brunch I noticed I was missing a diamond out of my engagement ring.
I appropriately and promptly freaked out/ panicked and looked all over the kitchen where I'd been for the last hour, upstairs in the bedroom where I changed my clothes and nothing.
I'm so sad.
I know it was there earlier in the day but have no idea at what point it disappeared.
Despite friends high hopes that it will be found my gut is telling me it either fell down the drain or snagged on one of the 700 paper towels I used and subsequently tossed in the trash.
Not to worry, it's replaceable and perhaps if I'm lucky Babe will upgrade me for our anniversary in July.
You hear that hubby?????
I have to make jokes to keep from crying.
I really love my ring.
It's quite unique you see, it has 9 small diamonds in the center setting and my Gramma actually had a similar ring so you can understand the sentimental value.
Not to mention it's totally me.
Slightly traditional but once you take a closer look you see the uniqueness of it.
So there you have it.
To combat my loss I tried out a new recipe for dessert.
Lemon Burst Cupcakes (thank you Betty Crocker.com)
and they were the bomb!
I had actually already planned to make these and spent a great deal of my evening yesterday searching for the elusive Lemon Curd while Sweet Pea and I were out.
3 stores and one conversation with my mother later I learned it would be in the jelly/jam aisle and Trader Joe's for sure had it.
Saturday was 'beauty day' so Sweet Pea and I headed out to Long Beach to get our hair done and do some visiting.
We had a blast at the shop (as always) and then stopped by Dad's to drag him out of the house for some yummy Mexican food.
I swear, I think I could eat Mexican food at least 3 times a week.
In fact I probably do, but I digress.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and I was beyond stuffed for the rest of the night!
We finally headed back over the hill to our casa and settled in for a night of random TV watching.
By the time Babe came home I was still stuffed and me & the kid were winding down and rolling up our hair for church this morning.
Surprisingly it drizzled for a bit while we were in church and just long enough for me to catch an afternoon nap.
My mother-in -love stopped by for dinner and to pick up the kid as she's on Spring Break this week and will be spending a few days with her.
I'm super excited as well because we are having "Bring your Daughter to Work" day on Thursday and Sweet Pea will be with me all day!!
She's super jazzed about it as are my co-workers.
And then on Friday I'm going to get the "Royal Boys" Princeton and Kingston to baby sit the WHOLE weekend!
We're going to a birthday party for one of my co-workers daughters so that should be an interesting ordeal!
Me + 3 kids = comedy in the making.
How was your Easter?
