Easter Weekend and Beyond

There were only two of us working in the office on Friday.  When the boss came to us at 11:30 to say that he was leaving for the day at 11:45, we looked at each and said "WTF is wrong with us?"  So we left early at 1:30.  :)

Friday evening I went to the LSU baseball game with my Daddy.  It was a good game.  Game 1 of the 3 game series against Georgia.  We won! :)  Daddy got us awesome seats along the 1st baseline.  You can tell by the pictures I took with my phone's camera how close we were to the field!!  I love baseball!!!

Pre-game warm ups

Saturday morning I went out shopping.  I indulged and bought myself a few new shirts but my main objective was to get my niece Marly a birthday present.  She is going to be 9!!!!  Wow!  How time flies!  So a trip out to the outlet mall to visit her favorite shop was necessary.  Justice for Girls.  A little too girlie for me but it is what she likes!!!! 

I even visited Cabelo's for the first time ever.  I've never have had a reason to go there so I was out there so I went in. I'll probably never go there again.  LOL!  I don't do anything outdoors and if I do, I just use my grandfather's equipment.  So, unless I go back for a gift card for my grandfather, it really isn't my kind of place!!!

Spring came and went pretty quickly around here.  We are now heading toward the hot, humid, muggy days of summer!!!  Saturday afternoon was quite warm, so before the LSU baseball game came on, Duke and I headed out for sno cones.  There's a place not far from my apartment who has yummy flavors and does "puppy" cones too!!  (Basically just plain ice formed into a sno cone in a little Dixie cup).  Duke and I got our sno cones and then came back home to enjoy them while watching the game.

Duke enjoying his sno-cone!!  Ooops, it spilled!

Sunday was, of course, Easter.  Now, for some reason, I didn't sleep a wink the night before.  As I was still awake, I got up and went to early Mass.  By the time my parents called me to join them for Mass, I'd already gone and come back and was cooking breakfast!!!

Went to my parents for Easter dinner and to watch the 3rd game of the LSU series against Georgia.  It was a really pleasant afternoon! 

Now, I was really tired as I had not slept the night before, I went to bed super early.  Not just because of lack of sleep but because I was to meet the boss at 6:30 am on Monday morning!!!

Ohhhh, how I was anxious about Monday!  On Monday I took a trip to Orange Beach, Alabama with my boss.  We went to visit a resort where we are holding our summer convention in June.  It is 4 hours one way!!!  4 hours in a car, alone, with my boss.  A total of 8 hours in a car.  No radio. 

To be honest, it wasn't bad.  He was very well-behaved.  I'm not saying I had a blast but we both came home alive! :)

Now, let's talk about the resort.  This place is awesome!!! 2 and 3 bedroom condos.  Full kitchens.  Each bedroom has a private bathroom.  Huge balconies.  I cannot wait to go!!!  Since I am to have my own 2 bedroom condo, my sister and friend Celestine will be joining me for the weekend.  We may not see each other much as I have to work but why waste a 2 bedroom condo that we don't have to pay for????  Now don't feel too bad.  I will have off at least 1 afternoon where I can enjoy one of the 3 pools and the 980 feet of lazy river.  :) 

I have a trip to Houston coming up for my niece Marly's birthday.  I'm excited to go see everyone.  Might even run into my sister as she will be in Houston for a birthday party also that is literally just a few miles down the road from where I'll be. 

I'm also excited that my BFF Sarah is coming into town this month.  But not only this month but in June too!!!!  I hope we manage to catch up with each other!!!  It is rare that we see each other once a year let alone 2x within 6 months of each other!!!!  In fact, it has been 6 months since I last went to Houston to see her!!!  Wow, I think we might be setting a record!  I can't wait. 

Hope everyone is well and enjoying this fabulous Spring!!!

Well, you have been a busy girl! Sounds like lots of fun with all that was going on (except maybe the long trip in the car!).

Sounds like you had a great weekend and an enjoyable Monday, even though you were stuck in a car with the boss man for 8 hours, lol!

Spring? What is that? I have my heater on right now because it is only 35 degrees F outside and it is only supposed to get up to about 60 today, and this is California!!
