A Perfect Easter Weekend

This was such a great weekend filled with wonderful people, food, and fantastic weather (at least on Saturday).

On Friday night Jeremy and I went out to dinner and drinks (I drank water) with a few friends.  We started at the Screen Door which is one of my favorite restaurants in Portland.  I ordered the "Screen Door plate" which meant I could pick three items from any of the options on the sides or local organics menus.  I ended up with a lot of vegetables and mac & cheese.  Everything was amazing.
 Yeah, that was all my food.  No, I did not eat it all in one sitting.
After that we headed across the street and hung out at the Matador, which is apparently a tequila bar, but I don't think anyone in our group drank tequila.  It is a really nice place and the food looked great.  I was feeling pretty terrible after completely stuffing my face though.  I will have to try the food some other time.

On Saturday we had Jeremy's dad, sister, and brother-in-law over to watch the Blazers play the Mavericks in Game 4 of their playoff series.  That game consisted of the absolute worst third quarter I have ever seen and then the most amazing comeback I have witnessed in the fourth.  I still can't believe we won that game!

That evening we had some friends over with their three kids.  The weather was beautiful, and Jeremy made amazing hamburgers.  We hung out around the fire pit that evening and ate s'mores.  The kids ran around the yard with our dogs and ate a ton of marshmallows.  Their youngest kept feeding Sydney chips.  She was in heaven.

For Easter on Sunday we drove down to my grandparents house and spent time with my side of the family.  It was good quality family time, and the food was fantastic as always.  A lot of people wanted to touch my belly and it kind of weirded me out, but I guess they're family so I will have to get used to it.  Here are some photos of my niece and my soon-to-be nephew posing with their Easter gifts...
They are the cutest! 
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend.


  1. Sounds like a perfect weekend lady!

  2. Get used to the belly touching, it will happen. What is really weird is when it is not family who wants to touch it, I had a few random elderly ladies want to touch mine. No thanks!
    Sounds like a good weekend, we had smores on Friday night at a friends house. You forgot to say how much you missed me today though.

  3. Sounds like a really great weekend! Good food always makes everything so much better hehe. :)
