Thursday when I was done work around lunch time I went out for lunch at my favourite Vietnamese place. There were spring rolls, fried wontons, and dumplings involved. All amazingly delicious but not so good for me.

Car Wash March 29 2013 (1)

After lunch I ended up at the car wash cause the car was pretty dirty. I can’t be the only one who still gets excited about the car wash like a five year old, right?

Friday night I was invited to a friend’s place for homemade pizza. I brought over some Corona to share, cause really if you’re going to be eating some good pizza, you might as well wash it down with some beer. The first pizza was barbecued chicken, and the second was pepperoni and onions. While I like both of them, the pepperoni pizza was definitely my favourite.

Fake Cheesecake March 31 2013

Saturday afternoon I made a “fake cheesecake” for Easter dinner Sunday. There’s no cream cheese and you don’t have to bake it. It’s definitely not a real cheesecake, but for putting in a minimal effort, it’s pretty tasty.

Once the cheesecake was done I went for a walk. It was beautiful out – there were lots of other people and dogs taking advantage of the nice weather.

Sunday was all about Easter. I went to church in the morning, and had an Easter dinner with the family in the afternoon. There also might have been a little chocolate eaten. Cause it’s not Easter until you eat a chocolate egg or chocolate bunny, right?

1. It’s a long weekend! This last week seemed so long and like it was never going to end. I kept thinking that Wednesday was actually Thursday. I hate when that happens. Needless to say, I definitely enjoyed sleeping in a bit this morning.

2. Yesterday my mom gave me money to buy Easter candy for the family. Yep, my brother and I are definitely adults, but we still get Easter candy. Tell me I’m not the only full grown child who still gets Easter candy from their parents.

3. Speaking of Easter candy, there wasn’t much selection when I went to the grocery store to get it. Apparently you have to get there earlier to get the good stuff. There weren’t even any jelly beans left. Jelly beans will always be Easter candy to me.

4. It’s finally starting to feel like spring. I can go for walks without having a million layers on or avoiding icy sections of sidewalks. I’m definitely enjoying it. There’s even birds singing!

5. Tonight I’m going over to a friend’s place for homemade pizza. When I asked what I could bring, she said nothing, but I told her I’d bring some beer. Cause really, nothing goes better with pizza than beer.

6. That’s all I’ve got for today. Enjoy your long weekend!


I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend and spending time with friends and family.

We’ll be celebrating on Sunday at the hospital. While it definitely won’t be the usual Easter dinner, I think we’re pretty grateful this year. Yeah, someone is in the hospital, but he’s doing a million times better than he was last week.

Happy Easter!
