Another Beautiful Weekend


Despite the fact that I was feeling quite sick, I had a lovely Easter weekend. I spent the weekend at a hotel in North Dakota with lots of family members. Most of the time, my family was making me laugh so hard, that I couldn't even think about being sick. :)

We had little picnics by the pool while we visited with each other and watched my little cousins frolic and dance. These two (above) love dancing with each other, and it's the cutest thing.

My sister and I sat by the pool and read Oh Comely and cupcake magazines, played Scrabble, and drank Arizona Green Tea (Yum). You lucky Americans have way more Arizona flavours than we do!

Of course, we made time for just a bit of shopping. My favourite find was this lovely floral romper. Perfect for Summer!

At the hotel, we set up a little Easter scavenger hunt for my little cousins. They looked around the hotel for Easter eggs, and when they found them all, they got to open them all up. Inside were little goodies like stickers, chocolates, bracelets, etc. They're faces, when they were convinced that the "Easter Bunny" had come to the hotel? Priceless.

At Barnes & Nobles, my sister and I found this crazy little book called "Wreck this Journal". Basically, it's a journal filled with different ways you can wreck the journal! So much fun. Check it out here.

Ahh, windmills. A sure sign you're back in Canada.
When I got home, I was so surprised to see that I was the winner for Carlotta's Spring Photo Challenge. Thank-you so much, Carlotta! :)

 I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend. Tell me about it in the comments.
