My Happy List: Easter Edition

Good Morning!  It is shaping up to be a beautiful Easter weekend!  I hope everyone takes the time to recognize all that God has done for you this weekend - sending his son, Jesus Christ, to die on a cross for us!

And in turn, I want to recognize all that I have been blessed with this week via Mamarazzi's "Happy List"

Photobucket


1. It's Easter weekend!!  My kids had Friday off - here in the south, we always get Good Friday off from school.  When I was growing up, we called it "Good Friday", but now it is just a "spring Holiday".  go figure.

Both older kids thought they got the day off for Earth Day - hmmmm - no.

Don't get me wrong, Earth Day is great - love Mother Nature - but since when does it trump the death of Christ?  Not in this house.

Luckily, a few friends of mine shared this fun clip on The FaceBook this week and it got my kids back in the right frame of mind.

Please take a moment to watch it - it so adorable.....


2. Good Friday off playing with my kids!  We planned a HUGE photo scavenger hunt with friends in the neighborhood and finished the day with a swim in the pool with margaritas.  It.Was.Awesome.

3. A Massage.  I won a massage from my personal trainer and y'all....it was the best massage ever!!!  I don't take the time to get these very often and it was so wonderful.  ahhhhhhhhhh

4. RedBox - have ya'll discovered this???  So easy and only a BUCK!!  We rented Love & Other Drugs.  Good movie but what cracked me up the most was that the character was a Pfizer rep - and they nailed it.  So outrageously funny the things he did....and so embarrassingly true.....

5.  Found $$$$.  Hubby pulled a back pack out of the attice and while emptying it out, discovered a few travelers checks from a vacation we took in 2008.  WHAT?????  God just blesses us left & right in the best ways.  Momma's going shoppin for some Easter shoes today!!!

It has been a really good week -- we are happy to have no commitments this entire weekend and spend time as a family.

Happy Easter to all!!  

Christ is Risen!

He has Risen Indeed!!

Loved the video!
I also love that the south does that...they treat Easter with the esteem (? is that the right word?) it deserves.
When we went to the southeast back in 98 it was around easter and so many things were closed. Around here it's totally a "non holiday" almost.
Happy Easter, friend!!! It truly is a GLORIOUS holiday!

That video brings tears to my eyes...it shows that it doesn't have to be elaborate with big words to tell the story of Christ. LOVED it!!! Sounds like a fabulous week :) Happy Easter to you and your family.

I love finding money; it just doesn't happen often enough! And Redbox is the best!

Happy Easter to you all!

Finding old money is always a blessing! Have fun shopping!

And Good Friday off? That's awesome! That doesn't happen here in the PNW. Does that mean we are heathens? I don't think we got Good Friday off when we were in Utah either.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter friend!

A swim AND a margarita? I'm jealous. All we got was stupid rain this weekend.

LOVE a good massage! *jealous*

Redbox sounds amazeballs. I have netflix but it's not worth $16 a month if you keep the movies for 2 months before watching them. I may quit and switch to those handy dandy Redbox machines.

I found $.76 cents in the washer on Thursday. Does that count as finding money? I bet you found more, huh?

That was a great video!

YAY for found money, massages and Margarita's!

Shawn said...

I need a massage too! Lets see who wants to slip away for an early morning massage and mimosas in just TWENTY-FOUR days!

Found money!? How cool is that!? I am glad you got a massage... drinking margaritas by the pool can really take it out of you, ya know?
