As I mentioned last year, I don’t typically go home for Easter. It will be interesting to see what Brian and I do next year, since this year it fell during a really stressful time for him with finals. Even though I didn’t get to see my family, I did see Brian and I got a lot of QT time in with my friends. Also, I would say that food played a large role in my weekend (as it often does).
This was the weekend of delicious brunch. Three days in a row. It was awesome.
On Friday I ate at the Tavern and had pecan pancakes, my favorite. Yum.
On Saturday I ate at the Nook and had a biscuit with sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, and fried potatoes. It was soooo good! AND it was free! My friend had a milkshake spilled all over her, and management was nice enough to give all three of us our meals for free! She definitely took one for the team. We left a big tip.
And finally, for Easter Sunday I had huevos rancheros for brunch. The whole Mexican eggs thing has never really appealed to me, but this was AMAZING.
I honestly couldn’t pick a favorite if I tried.
In news other than food…
On Friday I saw finally saw The King’s Speech. I loved it! And what better timing than to watch it the week of the royal wedding?
Yesterday I went shopping with my friends after lunch. I got some nude heels (which I’ve wanted forever!) for a really good price at Marshalls. I also got a good deal on a dress at TJ Maxx. It was really fun.
Today my roomies and I made mimosas to go after brunch and went and sat on the lawn in our sun dresses. It was awesome. I didn’t take pictures. So just trust me when I tell you that it was beautiful.
Afterwards we came home and drank some more mimosas and watched Ever After, which I love. Then we made dinner and watched some more movies on TV (there were so many tonight!) We also watched a special on TLC about the royal family which I thoroughly enjoyed.
I hope everyone had a happy Easter!
