Do you know how I know it’s the day after Easter? I have a Butterfinger in my purse for “lunch.”
In all seriousness, Easter weekend was awesome. My parents & I spent yesterday hiking on some trails on Skyline Drive. We hiked UP to a 360 degree view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, then we hiked DOWN to an amazing waterfall . . . then we nearly died of starvation on the way back to the car. We’ve been hiking up there since we moved to Orange thirteen years ago, but we still forget to take water or power bars with us on the trails. I made Dad stop at a gas station on the way home and proceeded to pretty much swallowed a bag of Salt & Vinegar chips whole. I know, I’m the picture of healthy living.
More highlights (and lowlights) from the weekend:
- I was reminded this weekend that Easter morning is just as exciting as Christmas morning when you’re little. My nephew appeared at my bedside at 6:58am Sunday morning saying, “Time to go find my basket!” Sure enough, the entire household rolled out of bed and down the stairs. There’s no denying that kid!
- I fell in love with my new Eno hammock this weekend! My favorite boy got me one for my birthday last Friday, and Saturday, we finally had the perfect day and the perfect trees to hang it in. It’s so relaxing! I thought for sure I would NEVER get it back in the little bag because heaven knows I can’t roll up a sleeping bag to save my life, but it just stuffs right back in. For some reason, I was really impressed with that part.
- Lifepoint Church did an amazing job on their Easter services this weekend! If you live anywhere near Fredericksburg or Spotsylvania and are looking for an awesome experience, visit Lifepoint! They have services every Sunday at Riverbend High School and Massaponax High School. Check out their website for service times. If you don’t live near these locations, but feel curious, you can listen to podcasts of the services here.
- I just want to put this out there . . . My name is Shalese & I am addicted to Scandal. My darling roommate and I are so addicted that we are catching up on episodes of season 3 on YouTube. The quality leaves something to be desired, but we don’t care! We do care, however, about avoiding spoilers. So far, so good!
I’ll leave with my iPhone photos of our Easter weekend adventures. :)
My precious parents. :)
