An Easter Weekend

If I can't be in Kiawah or tailgating outside of Death Valley, this is exactly how I like to spend my Saturday mornings/afternoons:
Run a local 5K {& totally kick butt in it}
Walk a couple blocks over to Main Street to stroll through Soda City Market.
Make a pit stop by Blue Flour Bakery for some Easter themed sugar cookies {& get 2 of them because you deserve 2 after kicking butt in your 5K}
End up at the zoo for a couple of hours with some friends from Charlotte.
Don't get me wrong - I love the zoo. I can go to the zoo any day of the week with anyone or even by myself and have the best time walking around. But going with your friends + their two kids? Totally different experience. It's pretty fun to see the zoo through the eyes of a 5 and 3 year old.
Patrick & I made a quick trip up to eastern NC Saturday evening to see some of his family and woke up super early Sunday morning to get back to our church for Easter services.
Not going to lie - it was a little weird. For the first time in 9 years, I wasn't at my old church for Easter. There was no group Easter picture this year like in years past. But it's time for new traditions in our new church!
The weekend ended with a long 2 hour nap, a few House of Cards episodes, catching up on last week's episode of Scandal, and watching our favorite Sunday night show {Quantico!}
Plus, a lot of cookies from Blue Flour, courtesy of the Easter bunny ;)


  1. Sweet weekend! Congrats on your 5k! We did Easter mass by ourselves for the first time in our new church this year too- it was different, but nice!

  2. Those cookies are so cute and look yummy! Excited for you to make new traditions with Patrick in your new church!

  3. Sounds like a pretty good Easter weekend- that "beach please" sign is the cutest!! And new traditions are always good- let's hope for better weather this week!
