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 mall....ALONE....to 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?
