Easter weekend and Joe’s birthday

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Ours was great with a few interruptions from the flu! Aside from that it was a wonderful Easter weekend!


Joe and I were both supposed to work however just about as soon as I got to work I got the call from daycare that Liam had the flu. Poor little buddy. I headed back home and spent the day snuggling him. He didn’t have much for an appetite so I just kept trying to get him to drink some water and hydrate his little body. By the end of the evening he was eating a little bit but not much.



It’s Joe’s birthday!! He and Liam spent some of the morning snuggling. Liam seemed much better in the morning and had his appetite back which was good.


I headed off to Sweat Circuit to get my weekend workout in. I love this workout and feel so good about getting it done on a Saturday morning. The ladies who come do it with me ROCK!


After workout I had to go to my mom’s to pick up 2 dozen eggs. She boiled them for me and I was going to make deviled eggs for Easter (I have never done this before).

Then I headed home to hang with my boys. We had breakfast once I got home and played a little before Liam’s nap. It was a rainy day so play time was done inside. While Liam napped I showered and got ready for the evening.

After Liam’s nap we headed to church. We went to Eagle Brook Church in Woodbury for the first time. We knew we wouldn’t be able to get to church Sunday morning and our church doesn’t offer a Saturday evening mass so we decided to try something new. My mom came with us. It was a really nice service. I liked the way they really broke things down and made it easy to understand. We would go back at some time in the future.

Then after church we headed to Pier 500 in Hudson for Joe’s birthday dinner. We met Joe’s parents, his brother Patrick, and my dad there (my mom was already with us). We had great appetizers and food and even got dessert. It was a great meal. Liam did pretty good too!

Then we headed home to watch the Blackhawks game and put Liam to bed. I had a major stomachache but needed to get those hard boiled eggs peeled for the deviled eggs. I did that quick and then relaxed with Joe before heading to bed early. I was so tired from the busy day and my stomach did not feel right.


The flu. It hit me in the middle of the night and it was terrible. I couldn’t keep anything down all morning, even water. I spent the morning on the couch while Liam found his Easter basket from the Easter bunny. He was thrilled to get bubbles and play-doh (we don’t do candy).

I was finally able to start keeping some water down but it didn’t matter. I had the flu and was going to have to stay home for the day.

Joe and Liam got dressed and ready to go to Easter. They looked so handsome!


They headed to Joe’s parent’s first. Liam ended up taking his nap there. Then they went to my aunt and uncle’s for my family’s celebration.


It was such a nice day. The kids were able to go outside and do an Easter egg hunt.

Then Joe and Liam came home. I literally spent the whole day on the couch just trying to pump fluids into my body. They had a great time though which was good.

I ended up going to bed early hoping that the extra rest would make me feel better.

Although the we had the flu, the weekend overall was really wonderful and I am so glad that Liam was able to enjoy Easter with family. I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
