Happy (Sunday After) Easter- 2013

This Easter was a little different than ones past. My sweetie & I were both sick the entire weekend, and did not attend church on Easter Sunday. I can't remember a time when I had ever missed an Easter Sunday at church, but we were both at home with aches, a stuffy nose & Zach had/has a cough he can't shake- bless his heart. It made me think about how Jesus could have had countless excuses, all of them valid, for not doing what He did for us. I'm glad He wasn't weak like most of us humans seem to be. He made the ultimate sacrifice for us all-  with no excuses & no hesitation.

So, we saved our Easter clothes- my "frock" & his suit- and we took our annual Easter pics, as we always have since we got married, but this time, on the Sunday after. I'm such a nerd about this, because I always like to post years past, just to see how we've changed from year to year. I really don't realize how we change until I look at these pics next to each other. We did look a lot younger in '09, after almost one year of marriage, than we do now, after almost 5 years of marriage.






I just love those comparison pics!

Anyway, my sweetie & I had a great weekend this past weekend. We spent the day Saturday in Chattanooga, seeing a movie, shopping, eating & visiting with his mom. I had told him I would go see Jurassic Park with him for part of his birthday. It was re-released for its 20th anniversary. It was his favorite childhood movie- mine is The Wizard of Oz, and we saw Oz, The Great & Powerful a few weekends ago. :) WOW is all I can say about both of those movies. We loved them!

This was also Zach's first time to see a move in IMAX 3D, and he'll never be the same, I don't think. The experience was totally worth the extra money. I took a quick pic of us in our humungous IMAX glasses...

They were so big, they made an indention on my forehead that lasted well into the afternoon. Nice. :)

A lot of other things are going on in life lately. I was talking to Zach the other night about all the life changes that seem to be happening in our world lately- some good, some bad. My (Great) Aunt JoAnn passed away two weekends ago. She had had a long battle with effects from a stroke, and had also had cancer. My Mamaw Ruth recently had a problem with a clot in her leg, and is now in a rehabilitation facility for 21 days. It all makes me realize that grandparents do grow older the older I get, and I don't like that. I should just be thankful that they're still here with me.

This past weekend, my sweetie worked on the Kiwanis Pancake Day Saturday morning. He was also on the local radio station to promote it on Friday morning. I stayed out in the car and recorded it. He was wonderful, and well-spoken as always! I'm so proud of him and all that he does! :)

I spent some of the weekend cleaning & he worked both inside & out getting things done. I wanted to bring a little Spring inside the house, so I picked some Dogwood blooms and put them in vases around the house...

This weekend was a VERY big one for our family... I want to post on that separately, and hopefully that will be soon!! :)


  1. Hello! I'm Mallory and I clicked on your link through Kelly's Korner. Just wanted to comment and say I'm going to a Kiwanis pancake breakfast tomorrow, ha! I'm in a Kiwanis club that I joined this year because my dad's been in it awhile. Oh, and by the way, I really love your purple Easter dress you wore this year! Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog, Mallory!! It's fun to meet other non-moms in their 20's! I am on my way to checking out your blog also!!
