It's Easter Week

Happy Monday! Happy Easter week! Even though it was a chilly weekend in Ohio, I've been loving the touches of Spring throughout our house right now. Cute dish towels, egg decorations and of course breaking out the seasonal candles. Summer Scoop is not recommended for those trying to be healthy... as soon as our house smells like that? I'm tempted to go out and get all kinds of unhealthy treats.

Our weekend was pretty uneventful and that was fine by me. We stayed up way too late Friday night watching basketball so I didn't feel the least bit guilty sleeping in later than normal the next day. Saturday night we had a much overdue dinner, game and puzzle party at our house with Kayla and Caleb. I forgot to take our usual photobooth picture so this one from our last game night will have to do ;)

I love a good board game but you know what I might love even more? Puzzle races. Yes, we team up and take puzzles of the same size (Thanks, Disney!) and see who can finish theirs first. It's a ton of fun and gets pretty intense toward the end. I'm sad to report that the guys beat us this go-around, but we'll get 'em next time.

Also, I'm sure I've mentioned it before on here but Jared and I watch The Walking Dead and HOLY FINALE!!! Also, any thoughts on the spin-off show coming out? I won't spoil anything for those who haven't watched or bore the folks who don't watch- but if you're a fan? Let's talk!

I'm keeping it short and sweet today- hope everyone has a good weekend! PS!!- #4weeksfit officially ends tomorrow so don't forget to post and link-up with Kristin and I tomorrow and see how everyone did on their fitness goals for the month.

  2. It was a chilly weekend here too! The weather has been so weird lately! And I love a good non-eventful weekend. I've never done a puzzle race before but I LOVE doing puzzles so I think I'm going to have to give this a go! Have a great week girl!

  4. First of all, I love Easter just like you! I look forward to it every year. And that Walking Dead finale was INCREDIBLE! The best season finale of the show, by far. I was on the edge of my seat the entire hour and a half. If you want to talk details, let me know :)

  6. After seeing the pictures of puzzles that you and Kayla posted, I really want to do one! (Especially a Disney one of course.) Does that candle smell like jelly jeans and strawberry ice cream?

  9. My family is pretty obsessed with puzzles especially over the holidays but adding a competition to it??? That just takes it to the next level!

  10. What a fun weekend!!! We have some really great board games but they haven't been played in years. I really need to make it a point to have a board game night! I used to do puzzles with my mom all the time in the winters when I lived in Pittsburgh and I loved it! I might need to get one for our house now to work on. It is so relaxing. Hope you have a great week!

  12. I could talk for hours about The Walking Dead. This whole season was on point and I'm missing it already. Ugh. I'm definitely planning on watching the spin-off (in hopes that it will fill the void), but I'm also nervous that it might cheapen the original show! *fingers crossed* I think it'll be interesting to see the initial outbreak from the perspective of someone who isn't unconscious in the hospital and it'll be cool to see Los Angeles instead of Georgia for once. I wonder if the two shows will cross paths at some point!

  14. It was a little cooler here this past weekend, too, but it's supposed to be warming up into the 70's this week!!!!! I can't wait to decorate our place next year for Easter!!!! I keep popping in Hobby Lobby and catching some spring/Easter decor on sale and grabbing it for next year lol.

  15. Sounds like an awesome weekend! I lit a seasonal candle tonight and my husband came home and said, "DID YOU MAKE PUDDING OR SOMETHING? IT SMELLS LIKE DELICIOUS VANILLA IN HERE" lol. I hated to disappoint him and tell him no pudding, just a candle haha.

  16. Uneventful weekend are the best for me. I'd rather spend weekends at home with my boyfriend than go out. Looked like you guys had a lot of fun too. I love doing puzzles as well. It was my favorite as a kid. I don't have much time for it now. Aw, haven't watched the walking dead finale. Thank you for not spoiling just yet. lol
