Hi buddies! How are you? I hope you’re having an okay morning and hanging in there. <3 I additionally hope that those that had been celebrating Passover and Easter this weekend loved the vacation.
It was positively a bit on the bizarre facet this yr, however I really feel like we made probably the most of it. We had numerous Facetiming with household (plus a couple of driveway “hellos” which had been an superior shock), an egg hunt with the kiddos, and a sugar overload, so it positively checked the containers for a nice Easter.
The women had slept within the tent in the lounge and waited till 8:15 to wake us up!
This is as a result of they’d discovered their baskets, fortunately opened their new toys, and feasted on a number of the sweet. I acquired a image the earlier night, which was good as a result of we woke as much as pure Easter basket destruction.
I put the egg casserole and bacon into the oven and we headed outdoors to hunt for Easter eggs. The women had been fairly pumped with their haul,
and we went inside to open the entire eggs whereas I popped the cinnamon rolls within the oven and we had egg casserole.
After we had the savory facet of breakfast, the cinnamon rolls had been prepared, so we loved some on the sofa whereas we watched Andrea Bocelli’s stay live performance from Italy. My Tata beloved Andrea Bocelli, so it was a particular technique to really feel near him this vacation. <3
The remainder of the morning was spent in our pajamas, Facetiming the household, and popping outdoors to get some Bundt cake and Easter items from madre and nana. (It was so good to see a number of the fam regardless that it was only for a short time from a distance. Missing household has simply been the hardest factor about this entire ordeal.)
We lastly acquired dressed and took the women to the park for a lengthy bike journey. Livi just lately acquired a new bike, so the women are obsessive about using their bikes round. They ask to go for walks a number of occasions a day and I joke that fairly quickly I’m going to should journey P’s scooter as a result of my legs are like WTF are you doing strolling this a lot?
We got here dwelling, had a Zoom name with my dad’s facet of the fam, and I caught a fast BODYPUMP exercise within the storage. After that, it was time to drop off August’s birthday present at Kyle and Meg’s as a result of he turned 1 yesterday!!
They had their storage partitioned off with baby gates, so members of the family might drop off items in the direction of the underside of the driveway and sing, “Happy Birthday” and wave. The was among the finest and saddest components of the day. Everly actually needed to get out of the storage and play with the women, which broke my coronary heart into a thousand items. I simply needed to swoop her out of the storage. 🙁 I simply can’t look forward to the day once we can all be collectively once more.
Since we’d been snacking on sweet/treats just about all day, dinner was simply a fast throw-collectively meal. I boiled brown rice noodles and sautéed some rooster sausage in a separate pan. When the noodles had been carried out, I drained them and rinsed in chilly water, then added them again to the pot with the rooster sausage, some solar-dried tomatoes, diced artichoke hearts, butter, and shredded vegan parmesan. I topped every part with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. It took 15 minutes to make and was SO good!
The remainder of the night was spent watching Unorthodox on Netflix – simply began it and intrigued thus far – and planning some exercises for IG this week.
Some extra adventures from the weekend:
– We ordered sushi from Ra and was LIIIIIIFE. When we instructed the women what we’d ordered, P mentioned, “I hate juicy.” (Juicy = sushi) Once we had every part on the desk and P was shoveling California roll into her mouth, she was like, “I love juicy. Juicy is my favorite.” LOL
– The Pilot needed to go to Basha’s for butter – the butter ration has been surprisingly troublesome over right here – and likewise introduced this ridiculous and insanely scrumptious bunny cake
– Caroline was the primary member of our home to have a ‘Rona haircut. She was SO shaggy and getting hot/uncomfortable on walks, so the Pilot decided to put our pet clippers to good use. (I bought some when we were in Valdosta after a groomer hurt Bella. She got one hack job of a haircut from us until we were able to find a wonderful groomer in town.) It took three hours but she looks so amazing! I told him if that flying airplanes thing doesn’t work out, he has a strong plan B.
Caro is feelin’ herself.
I hope you will have a nice day and I’ll see ya within the morning with a exercise submit.
