Places to Go, People to See

I always look forward to the weekends because my husband is usually home and it's a good chance for us all to do something together or for me to actually get to do something or go somewhere alone. This weekend offers a combination of both and I really couldn't be more excited.

Today my husband is leaving work at noon, being Good Friday and all, and coming straight home. Once he arrives I will be leaving as fast as my legs can carry me to spend the rest of the afternoon having some "me" time. First, I am going to get my hair washed, cut, styled, and possibly highlighted. This may not seem like a big deal, but I am usually the kind of person who pops into Supercuts, gets the 15 buck haircut, and calls it a day. And while I used to get highlights fairly regularly I haven't colored my hair in almost six years. Today, I figured, I'd treat myself to the full experience and branch out and try something new. I'll let you know how it goes. Then I am heading to the try to find a pair of the ever elusive "perfect khaki shorts". I have been looking for about 8 months and have found a "problem" with and returned every single pair I have purchased during that time. Today, I hope, the hunt will end. If I have enough time I may meet a friend for a drink.

Tomorrow, we are heading up to Phoenix to watch Disney on Ice. Our children have never been and I haven't been in probably 20 years, so I am excited and to say the kids are excited is a vast understatement. We contemplated spending the night in Phoenix but with Easter being Sunday we are heading back after the show.

On Sunday we will attend church and have the kids hunt eggs three times: once at our house, once at church, and once at my grandmother's, who we will be visiting in the afternoon. All in all, it should be a busy but fun weekend. So, what is on your agenda for the weekend? Do you celebrate Easter? If so, any special traditions?

Well, right now I'm cleaning the downstairs (taking a break!) to have family over on Sunday for lunch (12 probably).
Our tradition is kielbasa, pierogies, rye bread, hard rolls, babka -- good stick to your ribs Polish food!
Kids are a little old for easter egg hunts but I still do baskets for the three of us with a little gift included (this year, shorts for my son, Keith Urban's CD for me and golf balls for hubs).
Have a Happy Easter!

Oh enjoy your spa-like pampering today! What fun, I love days like that. Good luck with the shorts, I'm a fan of capris, myself, and I guess Bermuda shorts too. But we're still holding on to winter here, it's in the 50s and cloudy, rain predicted.

Easter here? Cooking with daughters, who, yes, still like to have Easter Baskets!

Happy Easter!

So, this is the first Easter I will be spending without my parents, who are in DC, and also the first Easter I will not have an Easter basket. Yes, even at 31 I still get an Easter basket from my mom every year.
Nancy, that food sounds delicious. What are pierogies? I don't think I have every heard of those. I always love hearing what other people make for Easter meals.
Joanne, I love capris too and Bermuda's. I was trying to find a little shorter since it will be so hot here soon. I did purchase 2 pairs, so we'll see if I still like them tomorrow.
Have a terrific Easter.
