happy monday, folks!
i hope you all had a restful and blessed Easter weekend. it was absolutely gorgeous in the city yesterday. in fact, i was a little toasty while walking to church with Mike. for the first time in many months, i actually felt uncomfortably warm while outside. i've made a pact with myself that i will not complain about the heat this summer, though, after the brutal winter we've had. we'll see how it goes...i'm pretty well known for my complaining, especially about the weather.
Mike and i attended the Easter service at the church we go to in the city and then had a little basket hunt in my apartment. my mom shipped him and i baskets and insisted that we hide them for each other before opening them. so, we did. but we both quickly gave up and asked for the 'hot or cold' hints within about 30 seconds. for the record, i found mine first!
after enjoying some of our treats, we headed out to Elly's for a little brunch. we were both so hungry that we made slightly irrational choices while ordering food, which included an extra side of pancakes and a pile of fries, in addition to our entrees. Mike and i are a good eating pair because i never eat all of the food on my plate and he always wants more food. in fact, he factors my leftovers into his order but he usually regrets it later. yesterday was one of those 'one meal' days.
in totally separate news, Otis now prefers Mike's lap to mine. i tiny part of me died yesterday when we realized it.
