Hey Ya'll I'm back. How's everyone's Monday going? Mine is going good for the most part. It is gorgeous outside today and so sunny. I was outside for lunch and let me tell you that I so did not want to come back to work.

Since it is Monday and the weekend was just here let me do my little weekend recap.

On Friday I went for a walk with my friend S after work. We walked all around a local state park and it was so much fun. The weather was just perfect for hiking/walking. After my walk, I went the the boyfreind to eat at a newer resturarunt. Our food was so delicious and oh so yummy! We then decided to hit up some hot spots with his friend and me and we had a good old time just talking and laughing.

Saturday I cleaned for a little and then went shopping for a bit. I picked up a really cute dress that was only $5.00 dollars and got my cousin's soon to be daughter some really cute baby clothes. Oh how I love baby shopping especially for little girls. Little girls dresses, purses, socks, shoes, etc are so adorable. Not to say that little boys aren't but girls are just so darn cute! After shopping I quickly got dressed and went over to the boyfriend's house. We had tickets to see the Sauce Boss. Basically it's a guy who sings and makes gumbo while he is singing. He also gives out gumbo to the homeless when he isn't working which is pretty awesome. It was pretty cool and we had a lot of fun dancing. It was also a plus that I got to wear my new $5.00 dollar dress and got to sip on Strawberry Daiquiris all night long! Oh so yummy!

Sunday I spring cleaned for hours on end and then got ready to go to my cousin's baby shower. She is having a little girl this time (hence why I got little girl's dresses). It was a lot of fun. The entire house was decorated in pink and the food was soooo good. I serioulsy couldn't stop myself from eating. Serioulsy cucumber finger sandwiches are the bomb and so are mini turkey and cheese sandwiches. (Yes I said the bomb. I knoiw that is like so 90's but that's just how I roll). I really needed to stop because that won't be good for my Weight Watchers meeting on Tuesday night. LOL. After the baby shower I got ready to go walking with my walking team from Weight Watchers. We walked for a mile and a half and then after I got home I decided to run for the first time since I hurt my ankle. I ran only about a half of a mile but it was really good for me to do and seemed like a great end to my day. If only the boyfriend could have seen me go, he would have been so proud. The boyfriend left Sunday to go Turkey hunting for a few days with his dad. He'll be back on Wednesday but I'm missing him still. :(

Today I'm back to the daily grind of work. This week I work close to 57 hours. I work close to 40 hours at my full time job and then on Saturday I work 12-16 hours for my part time job. Pray that I make it and don't quit before I even start. I so want to quit. I really don't want to be working this much and especially working that long of hours on Saturday. Plus this Saturday Jon and Kate (Plus 8) will be here locally visiting with folks in the area. (yes they already live extremely close to me but I serioulsy want to meet them) Since I'm working :( I won't be able to see them. BOOOOOO!

And before I leave you all, I want to share a story with you:

This morning I walking to work like I normally do and when I got close to my building I noticed two large "rock star" busses. Since this concert hall is right across the street I figured the band and everything was already inside warming up but then I noticed a guy sitting on the sidewalking texting on his phone. I kept thinking he looked familiar but I didn't make much bother than that. I just thought he was a bus driver or something taking a break after driving for hours. After lunch I was reading the local newspaper online and read that THIRD EYE BLIND is diong the concert tonight. Yeah so I totally saw the one guy from there. Bummer that I didn't get a pic with him or get his autograph. Oh well but I think it's still pretty neat. I'm not a HUGE into their music but I do know some. I don't know the guy's name but I have a picture that I snagged from Google. Below is the guy taht I saw this morning (he's the one at the top with the blonde highlights):

Hope you enjoyed my story of seeing a famous person. LOL. It's rare that you would see rock stars in PA (well I see one every so often, the boyfriend has a friend who is kinda/moving up famous) so I'm a little stoked.

Have a GREAT day and enjoy the weather if it nice out where you live. Lots of Love, Sarah

I promised you all yesterday that I would recap you on the weekend events. So without further ado:

Well Friday night I went with the boyfriend and his mom to their church for Good Friday Service. The service was wonderful and very nice. It was the first time I went to Good Friday Service. My church doesn't do one. They do theirs on Wednesday night services but we never went to them. I'm happy that I went and I got a lot out of it. After going to Church we decided to go out and have a drink or two at a local bar. We sat and talked and had a lot of fun. It was nice just to relax.

Saturday I slept till about noon until the boyfriend called and asked me if I wanted to come over dye eggs. Of course I said yes. :) It was so great to finally be able to sleep for a long period of time. Lately I have been sooooo sleep deprived that all I wanted to was sleep for even 5 minutes. I went over to his house and we dyed the eggs. Before the egg dying he had a note for me that was from E.B. I opened the letter and read aloud the contents and realized it was from the Eater Bunny (E.B.). I was instructed to go on a scavenger hunt finding clues along the way. I went and found all the notes(they were cleverly hidden, one in the fridge with a half eaten carrot made to look like a bunny ate it, and one even on his dog's collar) I finally found the basket after like 20 minutes of searching. It was beautiful and really well displayed. I figured his mom had to have helped but really she had no clue about it so that was even extra point for boyfriend. In the basket it had chocolates of course, the movie Mamma Mia(I just went to NYC to see the Broadway play), a kitchen towel that has something along the lines of Put the chocolate in the bad and no one will get hurt, jelly beans, gum, hand lotion that smells like Chocolate Dipped Strawberry and more chocolate. It was SO incredibly sweet of him to do. I almost was in tears. The amount of time it took him to do that and for him to write out all those notes even as far as going to bite a carrot to make it look like a rabbit and attaching a note to his dog was so awesome. I was blown away and really couldn't have asked for anything better than that. It was one of the sweetest things ever. His notes were so cleverly written. I'll have to share them with you when I have time.

Anyways moving back onto the eggs, I had forgotten how to dye them and totally got coloring on my fingers and then couldn't figure out why my eggs had white spots on them(I had been holding them there in the dye). Yea the boyfriend was all like you don't hold the eggs you just drop them in the dye if you want the entire egg dyed. I was like oh ok, wow I'm stupid. Yeah so after I started figuring out how to be less of an idiot we had tons of fun.

Aren't these eggs awesome! Too bad I don't eat hard boiled eggs but I love looking at them!

After the egg dyeing extravaganza we started to relax and then I decided to make some chocolate peanut butter eggs for our families. I got quickly to work and made double the recipe so there would be enough for each household. I made 48 eggs total however Pozy(boyfriends dog) ate two so really we had 50. While the eggs were freezing we grabbed my mom's dog Izzie and took Pozy and took them to a local park to run around in the nice weather. It was so much fun watching them and we all had a great time. After taking Izzie back home we went back to his house and I finished giving the eggs a chocolate bath. This was a little tricky but I got it down and we made it out the door just in time to pick up boyfriend's friend for late night bowling. Yes I didn't finished eggs until 10:45 at night when we got home at 8 from playing with the dogs. You can tell I'm tired right? So we went to this bowling alley and there was a waiting list. A waiting list to bowl? Yeah that's what I thought. They told us it would only be a few minutes but after an hour and a half we didn't think so and decided to bail and get some drinks. It was good to see boyfriend's friend and we all had a good time just hanging out and

Sunday was just wonderful. Easter Day!! Well normally I go with the boyfriend and his mom to their church but since my mom and brother wanted me to go their church the one I grew up in I went with them. The Church was PACKED. My Church is kinda like one of those churches you see on TV where they have all this high tech equipment and the sanctuary is HUGE. Yeah that's my Church. So now that I have painted a picture you can all guess that this church must have been crowded and packed if it is that HUGE. They had to have extra seats and everyone was scrunched in. I thought that was so wonderful that so many people had come to church to hear the word of god. Praise the Lord. The service was wonderful and really put me in the spirit. I guess really what put me in the Easter spirit was Friday night for Good Friday. After the service we went back to my mom's house and had Easter baskets! :) We then went with my aunt and her family to a local restaurant and had Easter brunch. The food was okay but I wanted more home style meals. After eating we went back to my mom's again and just hung out there until we had to leave to pick up boyfriend and then go to my dad's side family's dinner. Dinner there was good not all meals that I normally like but still good. It was good to see my family and to catch up with them. By the end of the day I was exhausted but I had such a lovely weekend. I really feel in the spirit of god now and really want to be more active in church after this powerful and moving weekend. Hopefully I can find the time with everything else going on. I know God will give me the energy! :)

How was everyone else's weekend?

Lots of Love, Sarah

P.S. I got to watch the Passion of the Christ again last night with the boyfriend and man do I love that movie! Really good, if you haven't seen it do.

So Happy Easter everyone. Yes I know I'm a day late but it's better late than never right?

How was every one's Easter? Mine was fabulous and I have much to talk about however I'm leaving for the day and I have a things to do tonight so I can't blog until tomorrow. :( I know you all are sad but it will be okay.

But before I leave I will leave you with a picture that I got on Easter:It's called the Easter Peep Show. If you can't see the picture very clearly go to Google and Image Search Easter Peep Show. Very funny and clever. :) Just a little humor to brighten you day.

Have a wonderful day everyone. Lots of Love!

So I applied for a part time job last Friday. I applied to work at a crab cake concession stand through the months of May-October. The ad stated that you make anywhere from $100-150 dollars a day! I was like alright, sounds awesome when can I start? I had my interview on Monday and it went well. They told us about the company, etc. It seems like a good seasonal job where I really can make that much money a day. The only problem? I will be working anywhere from 12-16 hours a day! Yeah you read that right. I most likely will work from 5 AM to 9 PM on Saturdays. Granted I am only working every other Saturday still that's a lot of hours just working one day. Hopefully I can do it and still be okay for my full-time job. I keep reminding myself that it is just a seasonal job and that I can quit if it really gets to be too much. We shall see, we shall see.

In other news, Easter is Sunday and I'm excited to see both sides of my family and excited to eat. :) The boyfriend and I are going to an Easter Service tonight at his church and then I'm going with my family on Easter to their church (the church I grew up in). Hopefully I can find some time Saturday to make Chocolate P.B. Eggs and I really want to make some time to dye some eggs. The boyfriend keeps talking about it so I hope we can. I haven't dyed eggs in forever!

Well I must get going. I'm super hungry and need to work for 2 hours before I can even begin to think about eating!

Have a Happy Easter Everyone and stay safe. Lots of love!

Happy Weekend!

Just wanted to shout-out to everyone to have a wonderful delightful weekend. It's raining here and it's kind of cold but the weather man says that it should be beautiful this weekend. I guess we'll see. I'm so hoping for a gorgeous day on Saturday. I really want to take a long walk in the woods or a park so I'm hoping for nice weather. :) *Fingers Crossed*

Besides the weather, I am going to be pretty busy this weekend. The boyfriend's cousins are coming out today and we are going to go out tonight and hang with them. Saturday I am getting invitations and making them for my Mom's Surprise 50th Birthday Party and I am also going to be seeing my wonderful friend S that I haven't seen in forever! Sunday I'm going to church and then visiting my Dad at the Wine Store he works at. That should be pretty fun. We are getting tastings and might even get a FREE bottle of Wine. Yummy and so relaxing.

Well I'm off to start my weekend but have a lovely safe fun-filled weekend everyone! Lot of Love!
