Tim and I received a lovely card from a family at our church, for Easter, with money in it. It was super generous of them! Tim and I used about half of it for a date night - at a wonderful SIT DOWN restaurant and had a really nice time together, talking, eating SLOWLY. . without having to feed someone else first! We took a stroll after dinner and stopped at a bookstore where I bought a baking magazine (one of my favorites!) and then we went into one of my favorite coffee shops - Caribou Coffee! We sipped on a hot cinnamon latte walking around the outdoor shopping mall, and just enjoyed each other's company. Later, in the evening, we stumbled by a store and decided to take a quick look to see if they had any nice Easter dresses. I hadn't bought one yet, and I wasn't planning on it this year, but we thought we would look anyhow. Not only did they have a huge selection, but I bought my dress and dress jacket together for only $47! What a steal!!! Nothing excites me more than a good sale!!!
We also wanted to have a family night with the boys. So, the following day we had a couple of errands to run - and the kids acted SO well. We picked up some food at Wendy's and then headed to a local park. The kids played for about an hour and really had a blast! It was perfect weather too!! After the park, we had one more errand that we had to run (a favorite of the kids . . . Sams Club) and then we topped off our evening with Cold Stone ice cream!!!
