Easter Weekend Festivities




Weekends always go too fast, and they seem to go even faster when a holiday falls on that weekend.


Saturday:

Up and at 'em early for a great workout!
After the gym I refueled with my new favorite protein shake, birthday cake. I spent a lot of Saturday running errands: dog groomer-health food store-ring shopping with Eddie-another food store and then we came home to prep our Easter brunch dishes.

But first, this happened:
Eddie bought me a coconut so naturally we stuck a straw in it.
That was THE BEST coconut water I have ever had, holy yum.

Then I had a genius idea:

Toasted coconut beer inside the coconut.
Reminded me of my drinking out of pumpkins days.

The beer lead to us creating some great dishes for brunch.
I made an asparagus and Gruyere tart

Eddie made a breakfast casserole with a bacon weave on top

We spent the rest of our Saturday night designing our wedding invites with Eddie's brother and I *think* we have our design! 



Sunday

Easter!

I woke up early to try a new class at the gym.
Ended up only staying for 30 minutes, it just wasn't for me....oh well you win some, you lose some.

I picked up this outfit from LOFT Friday night and thought it would be perfect for Easter brunch PLUS I needed baby pink jeans in my life...who doesn't?

Brunch was great, it's always nice to catch up with my cousins/aunts and uncles that I don't get to see as much as I would like to. 


After lunch it was meal prep time! I only made two salads for myself for today and tomorrow, Wednesday is another stuffed sweet potato because I'll be in AC the end of this week!

I am heading to the Revel hotel for the Bellator fights on Thursday with Eddie and my bosses, I am so excited :) I'll definitely share the experience with all of you this weekend.

Hope you all have a fantastic Monday!
