I will be so glad when Sunday gets here! I have only had two days off in the past two weeks, and I am exhausted! Spring and Fall are the busiest times at work, especially for the marketing department, so needless to say I have been putting in a few extra hours. I plan to take a few long weekends in May to catch up, but ya really need more than just one day to relax in a week! Ya can't fully unwind knowing that you have to get up and do the same thing again for the next 6 days. This week, I get my Wednesday off and I am going for a massage, pedicure, haircut, and I have a lunch date with my dear friend Kim! I really looking forward to Wednesday! Adam got me a gift certificate to Power Cut Salon and Day Spa for Valentine's Day and I am finally using it! I was waiting for the perfect time to use it, and now is definitely the perfect time! So excited...to me there is nothing better than sleeping in a little but not too much where you miss the coolness of the morning time, going downtown for breakfast and reading a magazine or the paper, then doing a little shopping, and catching up with a friend over lunch...and that's the day I plan to have on Wednesday...ahhhh....
Adam is adjusting to his new schedule quite well. We actually prefer it because we have our afternoons together, and we look forward to every other week when he basically gets six days off in a row! This week he is on all nights, and next week he'll have his days off which will be nice!
Last night Adam and I had his parents, mem and pep, and mutante Rita and uncle Bud over for supper. It was so nice! We grilled out and ate out on the deck, and just really enjoyed each other's company. We will be sad when mutante Rita and uncle Bud go back to RI. We have really loved having them!
Off to bed for yet another day of work...

I just love holidays, and Easter is one of my favorites! It makes me happy just thinking about it! I enjoy making Easter baskets, dying eggs, going to church, eating Sunday dinner, and being with my family. Growing up, I always looked forward to Easter: my grandmother would take my cousin and I to J.B. Whites to pick out an Easter dress, my cousins and I would die eggs and hunt for them and beg our moms to hide them again and again, we would go to sunrise service at the church I grew up at and then have breakfast at church, and we'd eat together as a family at my grandmother's, and we'd stand together infront of the azaleas and take pictures! Adam's Memere Lambert would send him a box of peanuts and hide eggs in it for him to find since she lived out of town (I think that is so cute!) , and now she sends he and I a chocolate bunny all the way from R.I. Although she is R.I., she always thinks of us during holidays. As I've gotten older, our traditions have changed a little bit but the reason for the season is still the same, that God sent His son to die for our sins, was resurrected from the dead and ascended into Heaven; "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16. What an amazing gift He gave to us. You can find the Easter Story in the book of Mark. I look forward to the day when Adam and I have children and we can read the Easter to the them and sharing traditions that they will remember and look forward to each year. Unfortunately, Adam has to work from 10 pm-8 am Saturday night so he probably won't make it to church on Sunday morning, but atleast he will be able to spend the day with our famililies. I am looking forward to it!
