I know this recap is way overdue since Easter was over a week ago, but I just haven't seemed to have enough time for all of the things that I want/need to do. I won't complain, though, because I'd rather be a little too busy than be bored!
Easter was a lovely day. We went to church and heard some wonderful messages about the Atonement and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The food we had for dinner was simple, but yummy. We had ham, "funeral" potatoes, peas, pistachio salad, rolls, veggies and even a pickle bar! I'm not sure why, but my mom wanted to have a variety of pickles. We had kosher dill pickles, bread-and-butter pickles and beet pickles. Mom also wanted to have sweet gherkins, one of her favorite kinds of pickle, but she couldn't find any at the store. I was surprised that the beet pickles went over so well with so many of our guests. I've never had pickled beets before, so I decided to try one. It wasn't the worst thing to ever pass my lips, but I don't think I'll be eating them again anytime soon. Just not my cup of tea!
(Above: beautiful flowers from my friend, Kellie. I love tulips because they just say "Easter" to me!) I decided to debut my new seafoam cardigan that I bought last December. Green is my favorite color and seafoam is my favorite shade of green, so when I saw saw this cardigan at New York & Company I knew I just had to have it! My mom also debuted a new sweater and we looked like quite the spring pair in our seafoam and aqua cardigans.
