Easter Weekend Recap

Long weekends are just the best!! This Easter break was just what my mind and body needed. I am a strong believer that a clear mind does wonders! Even though it was a long weekend, it was packed with activities!! Fun activities though!!

Nationwide Arena
On Friday, I got myself organized. I just recently took over for a first grade teacher for the next few weeks, and I needed to get the Guided Reading materials set up. I did some work on my computer, planned my outfits for the coming week, and got my bag packed for my Columbus trip!

Bar Louie is becoming my favorite restaurant!
Saturday, was the big trip to watch the Penguins play! I chose to get up extra early so I could get my workout in before I left. I had to be at the tour company at 8:45. I passed the time by reading some magazines, and looking out at the scenery. We got to Columbus, grabbed a quick bite to eat, and went to Nationwide Arena. The Pens played awful, but I changed into a shirt that really matters. A Duke shirt!! It worked, and Duke won the game!!

After getting home late Saturday, it was my brilliant idea to go to early church on Easter Sunday. The service started at 8, so we had to be out the door by 7:20. We had a wonderful service. After the service we came home and had my Bubba's (grandma) Easter bread. Yum! This is a delicious sweet bread with raisins, and icing on top. It is delicious plain, but even better grilled with peanut butter on top!

So, So, good!
My family hosted lunch after, and we had ham sandwiches, veggies and dip, cheesy potato casserole, deviled eggs, baked beans, and some other munchies. Dessert was carrot cake, and I could eat a slice!! I gave up pop and sweets for Lent, and I don't miss pop at all because I found a great alternative that is much healthier. (I'll blog on that later!) Oh, but carrot,so good!

Changed into a shirt that really counted on the bus!
Monday, I was off school (hallelujah!) so I slept in! I also got in a quick workout (to work off all of that food from Saturday and Sunday!) I went and ran a few errands, and them came home and got ready for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP!! I'm SO excited!! You will have to stay tuned to my social media accounts before, during, and after the game! I'll be posting pictures and my thoughts!
