Easter Weekend Things

Sometimes you go to the gym and yoga in the same day, then stay up late watching the Rockies beat the Giants (West Coast games are BRUTAL) and feel zombie-like come Friday, but you put on the Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats station and find the energy to get you through the workday.

Sometimes your weekend is busy busy so you make the very adult-like decision to go to the grocery on Friday so your Saturday/Sunday don’t seem so slammed with obligations.  But while you’re there you grab the makings of guac and pizza and invite your best friends over because  it’s 75° on a Friday night in April and life is too happy to be true.

Sometimes you promise yourself you’ll sleep in but then Saturday morning rolls around and the thought of coffee, pancakes and a full day in the garden is too exciting to sleep through.  Apparently all it takes to make me fully and genuinely happy is planting seeds in our garden beds.

Sometimes your Saturday night consists of baking a cake, making cashew ice cream, pickling/dying eggs, watching Jimmy Fallon on SNL and being in bed by 11.  Wild and crazy night, you guys.  But seriously, my heart was so happy for that entire day.

Sometimes you start your Sunday with (another) 5 mile run in a city that’s still sleepy and quiet and peaceful and perfect.  (That Bolder Boulder 10K always sneaks up on me but I’m getting myself in gear, I think!)  And then you’re rewarded with surprise iced coffee from your husband afterwards 🙂

Sometimes you think Easter Sunday is going to feel busy and full but it turns out to be nice and calm and not rushed at all.  I’ll take it!  We spent the afternoon with Joey’s side and the evening with mine and I managed to eat deviled eggs at both plus three different kinds of meat, so I’m feeling pretty accomplished.

Hope you all had a great weekend!
