This is how Easter weekend began in Minnesota:This is the tree outside our apartment. I think it looks like blossoms, except it's actually snow.Friday night I met my girlfriends for dinner at Olive Garden. It was my friend Beth's birthday. We get together for every birthday. Not always at OG, but since it's central to all, we met there for the second time in 3 months. A good time was had by all.Saturday was spent in the usual way. At least the morning was. I did laundry and ran errands. Errands consisted of a stop at Sam's and then grocery shopping. The weather was pretty much the same as it was Friday.Once I got home from laundry and errands, I put everything away and had every intention of cleaning. However, it seemed that the TV had other ideas. There was a good movie on all afternoon into the evening and I ended up wasting time on the couch enjoying each and every flick.
Today we were going to go to church but since we don't yet have a home church and Bob wasn't feeling well, we stayed home. I did manage to get my cleaning done this morning though. Later, we went to brunch. I had a $50 gift certificate for a nice place in Excelsior so we went there.
Brunch was lovely. We had eggs, yummy hash browns, french toast, wild rice, home made mac and cheese, prime rib, turkey, salmon, walleye, mashed potatoes, fresh fruit, and every dessert imaginable. The strawberries were out of this world.The dessert was equally fabulous. There were petite fores (is that spelled right? Somehow I think not.) There were bars. There were pastries. It was dessert heaven.
We ended up stuffed to the gills. I tried to take a photo of Bob but for some reason, he wasn't having it. Here is what I ended up with:And this:I think he's still not feeling very well. Poor baby.
Happy Easter to all!
