Good Friday

Happy Good Friday and Happy Easter weekend to everyone! I thought I'd kick today's post off with a little Flashback Friday. A classic Easter photo of my older sister and I, circa 1989. My mom made us those matching dresses, and it may be tough to see, but there are matching purses as well. We were straight STYLIN' and I love it!

Jared has made this week a lot of fun. He knows how much I love Easter but also knew how busy we'd be with family this weekend. He took it upon himself to be sure we did something fun each night this week. Like going out to grab Starbucks since our gift card was more than a year old and had never been touched. Or cooking up a delicious ratatouille together that we'd had on our to-make list forever. Or voluntarily watching one of my favorite chick flicks with me. (PS- When I shared that picture on Instagram, I couldn't believe there were people out there who haven't seen You've Got Mail?! The horror!!) And of course, coming home to that fluffy, adorable bunny Jared had seen me pet every time we went by it at the grocery store. Don't judge me- yes, I'm 5 years old sometimes.

Other exciting news from the past few days? I wandered into Target one afternoon for the first time in who knows how long. Starbucks and Target in the same week?! Goodness, just call me a stereotype! In an effort to get my steps in during the day, I'm trying to take a lunch break every once in awhile and Target happens to be a convenient place to walk around- especially when it's pouring outside. I didn't get anything, but I did take photos of about a dozen books I want to rent from the library (anyone else do this?) and loved this notebook, but resisted since I've got about 100 of them. True life, I'm an office supply addict.

You know what else is true life? This random post you all just got hashtag blessed with today. I didn't know where it was going, and didn't know where it would end up, but now that I'm here at the end of the post I'm okay with it. Sometimes life is just random and you need to spill it. And sometimes you make all your pictures circles because other bloggers did it and you liked it. Enjoy your Easter weekend everyone- I'm looking forward to time with family, a dinner theater and hopefully a couple Reester Bunnies ;)

Linking up these faves with Amanda today!

  1. HAHAHA hashtag blessed with. I love you. And you're pretty much a saint for not spending your Starbucks gift card AND not buying anything from Target. Can I get an Amen? That's an Easter miracle... well, it would be for me ;)

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I totally do the book thing! We get People magazine at work, and I get book titles from that a lot. Also from the flyers from the area Christian book store that come in the mail. I read the Husband's Secret a few weeks ago, and it's a good one!

  7. I keep a list in Notes on my phone of books I want to get from the library- I pull it up whenever I'm at a bookstore or Target!

    haha- I'll have to find some pics this weekend at my parents house of all the Easter dresses my mom made me over the years. Definitely some good ones!

  8. I add books I want to read to my Goodreads "to read" list. I love that there is an app for it so I have Goodreads with me all the time when I have my phone with me (which is all the time). Sounds like you had a fun week! Happy Easter weekend to you!

  9. I always walk around the books at Target (and Barnes & Noble) and make notes of which ones I want to rent from the library! The Husband's Secret is great; I love her books!

  10. I do the same thing with books all the time! I hate buying them so I take pics or notes and find them at the library later.

    I LOVE You've Got Mail!

  12. You should get GoodReads...you can scan books you want to read with the QR reader app and it goes to your Goodreads "To Read" list. It's a life saver! :)

  13. Ha! Bloggers do love circles :) hope you have a great Easter! I also cannot believe people haven't seen You've Got Mail. They're missing out! Glad you enjoyed your free Starbucks!

  15. Somehow, I've never seen You've Got Mail. It's on my must-watch list, though. I absolutely love that bunny! Way to go, Jared! The Husband's Secret is such a fun, easy read. I recommend it and definitely want to read more from Liane Moriarty. Hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed your favorite holiday!
