Easter Recap WIAW

Well Hello there my Easter people. This Sunday kicked off the Easter season and it’s time to party because He is Risen. Can I get an Alleluia? Also yesterday was my twin’s birthday! Love you sister

This weekend my phone decided to well let’s just say not be a phone, so my photography is sparse. So the recap will be extra speedy and we can get to the WIAW (which is also a bit sparse, still working on that).

Holy Thursday: Mass at St. Mark’s with Chris and my best friend Linda. Our special Thursday feast was not last supper-ish as it consisted of mini cashew bun, personal pan pizzas.

Good Friday: Went to Good Friday service at St. Charles in Minneapolis with my cousins before Chris and I hit the road and traveled the 2 hours to our hometown!

Holy Saturday: Ran our 7 miles, in like 25°,  made key lime pie, dyed easter eggs (x2), EASTER VIGIL MASS. One of our good friends got confirmed and I felt so blessed to be able to witness here enter into such an amazing family.

Please check out Chris’s awesome Easter egg tie in this picture! It is simply amazing.IMG_1890 IMG_1891

Sunday: EAT

And that my friends was my Easter weekend. As usual both our families were way too generous and we have a large pile of candy on our dining room table now. Don’t worry Chris and I are confident we can suffer through it.

Now for my Tuesday eats (If my phone was on top of things I would show you the feasts (yes plural) that I had on Easter, sorry!)

Breakfast: Microwave oatmeal (oatmeal, water, milk, frozen blueberries, chopped dates) for 2 minutes= yummm

Snack: Larabar that was in my Eater basket, Thanks Mom!

Late Lunch: Taco salad with homemade salsa. Yes, that is a dollop of greek yogurt sitting atop my healthy portion of cheese. Don’t worry there’s spinach in there somewhere!

Dinner: Chicken Tacos w/guacamole, fajita vegetables, and fresh salsa. I guess it was just a tex-mex kind of day!

Treats: Starburst jellybeans, Reese’s egg, dark chocolate caramel square, and gluten-free  sugar cookies.

    I love the blue and white dress you are wearing! It’s really pretty. And all your food looks so good—especially the taco salad. I am totally adding that to my meal plan one week. Good luck suffering through your candy pile haha

    Obsessed with those darn jelly beans! The other day my coworker left for lunch and I told him come back with those, or don’t come back at all 🙂 🙂 hehe. Looks like a nice Easter. Mine was lovely too! Love your dress.
