April Showers Bring May Flowers

I love the rain every once in awhile, but I'm ready for some more sunshine after this week, and boy did we sure get that today, couldn't have been a more beautiful and perfect Easter! Everything is sure looking green and fresh, which I love, but on the rainy days we have been having, I just want to cuddle up with Buddy in my bed! How can you resist this face!? (BTW- I never in my wildest dreams would have thought I would have gotten so attached to a dog, let along a BIG dog)

A few things about this week..

Pat and I FINALLY went and saw Hunger Games Friday night, and I must say I LOVED IT!! Now, when I first started reading the book I was a little lost and couldn't really get into it...and I was thinking to myself maybe this isn't for me?! (I never got into twilight either and thought this may be the same type of thing) BUT when I got about half way through the book and the "games" actually began, I couldn't put the book down! I read the second half in about half the time that I read the first and was so anxious to see the movie and see it all put to life! I thought the movie did an awesome job for the most part of really following exactly what the book was about, however, I was a little disappointed with the ending, I felt like they tried to cram too much into the last 15-30 minutes because they were running out of time, either way, I still loved it- now on to the 2nd book!! Pat even liked it and he hadn't read the book, so for those that haven't you should still think about watching the movie!

THE KITCHEN IS ALMOST DONE!! I thought we were almost done a few months ago when the countertops were finally installed, boy was I wrong, the backsplash was quite the chore too, as Pat had to cut all of the tile, measure it, re-sheetrock the walls, etc. but that is finally all done, it's grouted and sealed and looks amazing! Now we just have to install new light fixtures and put the new range hood in (Pat informed me this will take a whole day itself- oh fabulous), but we're getting there!

Easter Sunday- what a great day, and oh so much to be thankful for! Started off the day by sleeping in until 10:30...holy cow, I can't remember the last time this has happened! On to church, such an awesome service! Then we headed to Grandma and Grandpa's for a late lunch, easter egg hunt, easter baskets, and delicious dessert(s)!

Happy Easter!
I'm also obsessed with sweets, mostly cake/cupcakes/cake balls in particular, and if I had the body to allow me to eat that stuff every day, I sure would! But I don't, so I get super excited when I do have the opportunity to splurge a little! There's a new bakery in Wichita that I've been dying to try called
J. Rae's, and I thought what a great idea to bring cupcakes to Easter from this bakery!! So I bought a mixed assortment of them and OMG SO GOOD! Frosting is perfection. Here are a few pics of the pure deliciousness:)


Finished the day off with taking Buddy on a walk (Pat insisted we let him swim....but it's only April!) and then we went on a nice bike ride! Goodbye weekend....hello Monday.
