meal plan monday: april 9.

i love easter. it's one of the only days of the year that i do not curse my alarm for malfunctioning when it goes off at 4:45 in the morning because i actually set it to go off that early on purpose. because there's just something extra special about an Easter morning sunrise service that makes me happy. and if you dont think that waking up extra early and bundling up to stand outside (rain or shine) for about an hour in the frosty grass and chill breeze sounds like something that would make you happy, then i think you need to come with me next year to watch the sun rise over the trees as an entire hillside full of people sings "Christ the Lord is ris'n today, Alleuia!" and echoes back "He is risen, Indeed!" it's totally worth the super early wake up call.

also, we go out for breakfast between services. its a great tradition.

also also, i made sure we got a picture of us all dolled up in our Easter duds before we changed into more comfy clothes for the easter egg hunt (yes,i am 25 and still hunting for eggs) and the general lounging that occupied the whole rest of the day. apparently last year i made the hubs wear a tie. this year, i rewarded him for waking up early with me without whining by letting him dress himself. turns out they'll still let you into church on Easter even without a tie. who knew?

well hel-LO pasty legs!

in short, we had a wonderful, beautiful Easter full of family, egg hunts, food, sunshine, fun, and naps. i'm sorry i didnt call or text anyone all day to wish you a happy easter - i forgot my phone at home in the morning and we didnt make it back to our house until bedtime. here, let me make it up to you by telling you what we'll be eating this week:

Monday: fish, rice, and asparagus.
Tuesday: baked potatoes and salad.
Wednesday: lazy lasagna.
Thursday: soup from a can.
Friday: shrimp pasta alfredo with broccoli (recipe-ish)
Saturday: quesadillas.
Sunday: leftovers?
