This was All Souls Church, in London where Christine went when she lived there. We sure did miss being in Europe and were reminded of how blessed we were to be able to have that opportunity.
Saturday was spent baking my little heart out with my new cookie press for some Easter Cookies. I went for Gusto and 2 hrs into the 4 hr process, I was banging my head into the wall screaming, "what was I thinking?!"But the end result was worth it for me and for my husband.
Here's the stinky part of the story: After church, we came back to the house to get Missy and some table decorations quickly before having to get to my in-laws for Easter lunch. We got there and started to decorate and then it hit me: I FORGOT THE COOKIES AT HOME! I was soooo bummed out. Just like the Little Rascals movie quote says, "All this work for nothing!" oh well, I took them to work and my kids ate them all. Luke also helped me decorate the table in a very Easter and Spring way. After lunch, we all just relaxed and chilled. Luke and Catherine played some basket ball and I just sat and talked to Luke's mom and played with the dogs. We did get some Easter pictures in though. And just one more thing, for those of you who frequented the Mehaffie home during our college years remember that nothing in the house ever changed. EVER! Well, that streak is over. It's changed (or in the process of!)The wall paper is coming down and the paint is going up. She chose a shade of green! Sorry Sharon for posting your unclean undone kitchen for all the world to see! HeHe!

Here are the details:
The votive centerpeice was a great find at Goodwill for $4. You're supposed to put candles in it but I decided to put flowers. Those are artificial geraniums and I got them at Walmart for $3! They match our big red chair.The yellow flowers is my bridesmaid bouquet from my best friend Andrea's wedding. They have dried quite nicely. That frame with three openings I got on clearance at Target for $2.50. It's a picture of Luke and I praying at our wedding and our wedding vows are on each side of the picture. Those were all free because we just printed them at home!
This last one is my favorite. I found this purse and wallet at Goodwill for $1.99!!! The ribbon was $2.99 for 4 yards. I put the ribbon on using some iron-on stitching around the purse and on the wallet. This was so fun for me because I've been looking hard to find a good purse for that ribbon. It matches my little polka dot shoes too! (yeah, I know I'm a dork).
Well, there you have it. I'm also working on sewing together some coverings for some decorative pillows that aren't so decorative in our bedroom. I don't know how long those will take. I hope you're encouraged about decorating on a really really tight budget.

He gets free tickets at work. (This is an old picture from our 4th of July party).
It was my 3rd time in the RBC Center but each time is like the first. Plus, we usually sit up on the 3rd level but Burke had tickets for the club level. oooooooooooo!! It was fun.
(This is an old picture too.) The seats even had in-seat menus to order from. If I really wanted to, I could've ordered a chicken cesar wrap for just $11.00! What a great deal!!!But I tried as much as I could not to take advantage of that amazing deal! State ended up losing but it was a victory from within. State held the lead for the whole game and played the best they had all season. And, as much as I strongly dislike Duke, there was something surreal about seeing Coach K and that little rat Paulus in person.
Anywho, it was such a beautiful day that we went out to Cookout for lunch. It was all in all, a great day, and even better because it was unexpected and spontaneous!!! Oh yeah, Burke and Jen are expecting their #1 in July. WooHoo!!!!!
