Easter Weekend

I just spent the last hour obsessing over my watch that I thought I lost. ugh. I was about to go over to Bill's house to find out if I could spot it. I was being a bit of a control freak, but fortunately, after I sent Bill a text about coming over he found it! *Huge sigh of relief.* Anyways, now that I am relaxing, I thought I would share with you my Easter weekend.

I really did enjoy the weekend, but there were parts of it that just did not go as planned at all. On Friday, I went to pick up Bill from work like I sometimes do after he has been on night shift. We go to this bar with a couple of his coworkers. It's a sports bar where they have betting on horses. I love going there with him. After a year, there are so many fun memories there. After, we were done eating, we headed over to Culvers for cookie dough ice cream and drove home happy. The next morning, I went over to Bill's older sister's house for Easter. I brought fruit pizza that I had made that morning.

The dough turned out to be raw. I thought I was in the clear, because I had cooked it for 10 minutes, and the recipe suggested 8 to 10 minutes. But it turns out that the 8 to 10 minutes was for the sugar cookie dough that is already made that you buy in the store. Mine was homemade, and I obviously had made more. Oh well, I thought it was still pretty tasty. I honestly had such a good time spending Easter with Bill's family. They're so good at having a traditional holiday. They had one of the biggest Easter Egg hunts that I have seen with all of the nieces. The kids were so cute scrambling around to find their eggs.

Billy's parents gave the kids a chocolate Easter present from the local confectionery. I got one too! I loved mine. Mmmm. Plus, all the food that they had for lunch was good as well. It was just a really good holiday. :) My Easter dinner at my house didn't go quite as planned. We forgot to take the ham out of the freezer in time for it to thaw. Ooops. Our back up plan was pizza. Bill came over before my family got home from my brother's track meet so we watched TV, and he gave me my Easter basket. He got me a candy, goldfish, and sangria wine that we are planning on having tomorrow with waffles and ice cream. A fancy breakfast for dinner. 

After eating pizza for dinner, we went on a walk in my town and noticed all the old buildings downtown. I also showed Bill the part of the water tower that's next to my house that echos when you yell in it. I adored showing him some of the things that I grew up with. It was a great night. On Sunday, I went to church with my dad, and I'm really glad I did. I got to see so many people who I hadn't seen for a while. That was much so fun. It was nice going to a service where I knew some people. That night, Bill and I grilled some amazing hamburgers. (I love that he likes to have jalapenos mixed in the meat.) Even though we didn't have a traditional meal on Easter, we
prayed, and it was nice praying together. I am so thankful for God's sacrifice for us. I felt so lucky to have my family, Bill, and his family to celebrate Easter with. They are wonderful!
