Easter Weekend

My Easter consisted of a much needed 3-day weekend.

Thursday night I did a whole lot of nothing and it was incredible. Just hung out with my nephew, ate mass amounts of Popeyes (I know, I know) and just relaxed. 

Friday, I gots my hair did, finally got my eyebrows waxed (those dang things were going on 5-weeks, AHHH!), ran all my errands and babysat for the remainder of the day because my little monkey wasn't able to go to daycare since he was sick.

Later that night we went to Buffalo Wild Wings for a bite to eat and to catch up with some family. We were supposed to go downtown Friday night, but my nephew had to go to the hospital so I just wasn't in the right mindset to go out anymore.

Saturday, my boyfriend and I went shopping & had a delicious lunch on the patio at Bahama Breeze. Then, of course, hung out with my nephew for a few hours! 

He tried on my boyfriend's hat. How perfect is he?
Later that day my Mom, Sister, Nephew and I all drove up to St. Augustine to spend Easter with some of our family.

My night consisted of a midnight jeep right on the beach, vodka/h20, trying to assemble my Easter basket and being kept up all night because my nephew WOULD NOT sleep. It's OK, he's worth it.
My 1AM, alcohol induced Easter basket. Before you see how horrible it looks, let me point out that I had way too many items for this small basket so it's just all piled on top of each other. You can't even see all the fun goodies.
 Landyn's favorite - the mini basketball hoop, no surprise there! My little man got 4 Easter baskets this year, pretty popular fella!
After eating a delicious breakfast concoction that my Uncle made, it was time to find the Easter eggs! Landyn loved this. I was rather surprised at how much he enjoyed finding them.

 My world
After all that, Landyn got his first ride in 'DA JEEP' as we headed over to the inter-coastal to go paddle boarding.
My Mom, Sister, and I had never been so we were convinced we we were going to fall and come back soaked, hence the picture taken before I left.
 Look at me go! It was so beautiful and relaxing to be out there on the open water!
My cutie pie
 As I tried to paddle away from my second attempt, Landyn ran in the water and chased after the board because he wanted to come with me. After going once, I was practical a pro but I didn't want to get ahead of myself. This is me about to at least attempt it, but I quickly realized it wasn't going to work.
After a nice lunch out in the beautiful spring air, we headed back to Otown. The weather in Florida this weekend was perfect.  If only it could stay this way forever.

Last night, I had Easter dinner with Justin's family and finished up by watching the Master's. The entire time, I wanted Bubba to win but then starting feeling really bad for rooting against Louis. After seeing Bubba win, I'm SO glad it was him!

How was your Easter weekend? I'd love to hear!
