Saturday morning it was simply gorgeous here. A warm, beautiful spring day. We went on a 4.5 mile walk around the neighborhood with Junebug and then cleaned the raised vegetable bed and raked the areas of the yard that needed new grass seeding. We were outside from 9 until 1 and got a TON done. As it was supposed to, it started pouring Saturday afternoon, so B and I went out to run some errands together. I think we got all the things crossed off on our list for that day, which was really nice. B ended up getting a pair of new linen pants for the summer that he looks SO good in. And can I tell you that his waist has come down two full sizes in the last 6 months? All his running has really paid off- he looks fantastic :)
Saturday night we made a great pasta dinner at home and watched basketball. I ended up falling asleep on the couch during the Duke game. Luckily they won by 20, so it was fine that I wasn't awake for the whole thing.
Sunday morning we went to church for Easter. The little kids choir sang, and, of course, I cried. I still have little control of my emotions!! The adult choir did a great job and the instruments (trumpet, trombone, xylophone, etc) added so much to the service. We are really excited about this church- both of us know that it is where we feel very comfortable. We went to bruch after church at a local breakfast place we've been wanting to try (good!) and then came home and worked on the house most of the afternoon. Blair was able to spend a lot of time catching up with his family and a few of his friends he hadn't talked to in forever, and I was able to get ahold of a good friend of ours who just had a baby. I love that she was so honest with me about the whole experience. I'm getting more and more mentally prepared for the next month!!
I am glad we ended up not traveling for Easter and that we were just home enjoying each other and getting the outdoors and indoors ready for the impending arrival of our little Pud. I needed time to breathe, rest, and recouperate, and it was lovely. Everyone needs that kind of time!!
Oh, the biggest excitement of all???????????????????????????????????????????????????
I just adore these boys, heart and soul, all of them!! They worked so hard this season and have had a LOT of pitfalls the last few years, so this was a huge, amazing victory for them last night. Coach K is an amazing man and really has the ability to bring the best out in these boys. Way to go, Blue Devils!!
(Though I do have to say that if Butler would have won, I probably would have been happy- they have shown amazing strength, fortitude, and talent in this tourney! And their coach is just a babe- 33 years old!!! His tiny (like babe in arms tiny) daughter in the crowd melted my heart last night!)
