Easter Weekend Recap

Good morning friends! I know yet another Monday has dawned upon us, but weirdly enough I bounced right out of bed today and I'm not even grumpy even though I haven't had a single drop of coffee. I'll blame it on the fact that today is the only day I have to work until next Wednesday (insert hallelujah emoji here). I haven't had a proper vacation/time off at work since starting this new job and am really looking forward to it. Although I wish I was going to some fun beach or tropical island, I guess Houston will just have to suffice. I'm still holding out hope that Galveston is still in the plans even though the weather looks doubtful so far, fingers crossed!
This past weekend was pretty chill for the most part. I did a ton of packing and re-packing, definitely some over-packing, but all is good. I'm counting down the hours until tomorrow afternoon when I'll be at the airport heading on a plane. I'm strange in the sense that I actually really enjoy the whole travel thing, including the whole airport spiel. I actually think of it more like a game, like how quickly can I possibly get through security and finding the nearest Starbucks (that part isn't hard because there is quite literally 50 billion Starbucks at O'Hare airport...fact). Also I'm that loser that always picks the window seat so I can watch us take off and I get a flutter in my stomach when this happens...I'm weird I get it.
Anywho, now that I've thoroughly made myself out to be a weirdo, let's get onto recapping the weekend.
I went to the nail salon with my mom and sister to get our mani/pedi on. I went with a fun light pink color for my nails and did a hot pink on my toes (I'll spare you a picture of my toes).
Later that day I headed to the mall with my sister and while browsing Nordies, I came across this hilarious shirt and now I'm kicking myself that I didn't get this. Anyone that knows me knows I totally overuse the phrase Bye the point where my phone knows when I type in bye....Felicia automagically appears.
Obligatory Easter selfie. The sunshine was absolutely perfect yesterday and I was soaking it all in!

I was absolutely stuffed after brunch and almost forgot to take a picture of my food, but eggs, potatoes and pancakes...does it get any better than that?? Well strawberry mimosas, that's how it get's better. My only problem was that there was a ton of pulp in it so it made the mimosa less enjoyable, but it was delicious nonetheless.

We used a lamp post to serve as our picture taker...thank goodness for timers and patient friends who take 20 takes to get the right shot!
How was everyone's weekends? Linking up with the beautiful Biana who just came back from Puerto Rico and probably has a gorgeous tan, read her recap...I'm sure you won't regret it, but you may be jealous of all the beautiful pictures she took!!
