Easter Celebrations

With the weather being as wonderful as it has been, it was so exciting to get dressed up for Easter this year.  Traditionally, my family all goes to church together and then we all get together for a big lunch, but this year Justin and I decided to try and do things a bit differently.

We were invited by my friend Sarah and her family to attend the Saturday Easter service at their church and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to go since we've been in the market for a new church for a little over a year now.  The struggle has been that I need praise and worship and Justin needs a good pastor and so far every church we've seen has had one or the other.  We both really enjoyed the church and look forward to trying it on a non-holiday week this coming weekend.

After church, Justin and I made our way to Mitchell's Fish Market with my parents.  My mom and I have been talking about trying this restaurant for some time, so I was excited to try a new place and new food.

For dinner, I had the lobster bisque, steak, potatoes and asparagus and it was absolutely delicious! I wish I had taken a picture of the food, but by the time I realized it, my plate was empty.  I did manage to grab a picture of Justin and myself before we left the restaurant and walked around the outdoor mall.

After walking around the mall, we decided to go grab some ice cream for dessert.  In Michigan, if it is anything above 40 degrees outside, ice cream is a perfect dessert choice.  

On Easter Sunday, Justin and I spent the morning relaxing and I also worked on a few dishes to pass at his family gathering.  Our afternoon started by going to my grandma's house where my grandma, aunts and uncles and a bunch of my cousins all gathered around to celebrate.  Honestly, in my mom's family, we are constantly looking for a good reason to get together and the holiday's are always our favorite.

After spending some time with my family, we made our way up to Justin's sister's house to spend some time with his family.  As always, it was wonderful to spend some time with our niece and nephew.  I just love those two so much!

Do you watch Game of Thrones? We DO!

Our Sunday evening consisted of having a few friends over to watch the Season 3 premier of Game of Thrones and it was excellent!
