On Easter...

On Easter, ...

... went to church to celebrate Easter. After church, I had some spare time (ok, maybe I convinced myself that I had some). Ah, the beauty, and (my) downfall, of living so centrally, which means (very) easy access to shopping *sigh*.

So, I ended up at my "second home". I'd like to think I'm getting better at this, as I spent the better 2/3 of the time just browsing. What of the remaining 1/3?

... ended up buying sunnies.

Betsey Johnson sunglasses
$14.99 ($16.79, with taxes)


(I love the fun color of the frame!)

I've decided this year that I've had it with expensive sunnies. Yes, I admit, I've been a snob with sunnies for the longest time. But having lived in this city for a while now, I realized it's not worth splurging on them as I would probably get only 2 weeks worth of use out of them in a year. Ok, I exaggerate.

Besides, the sunnies my other sis gave me just kinda' fell apart last summer and I haven't really used it much!

RIP Gucci sunnies:(
Where the other lens went, I do not know


New TOTAL for the month: $59.35
BALANCE: $40.65
21 days remaining

... made an appropriate Easter dinner for me and hubs. Made lamb roast with sides of brussel sprouts with bacon and roasted yams and mushrooms. Also made a small batch of (Filipino) noodle dish, in honor of my dad.

Easter also used to be a personal Thanksgiving for him. When he was a baby, he lived to tell the tale about an Easter accident. Growing up, I remember always having noodles in addition to whatever else we're having on Easter Day. Just my tiny way of letting the memories live, that's all... *wistful sigh*

And I thought a special occasion deserved a special dessert after all.

Blueberry Creme Brulee cheesecake from Costco


I did get kinda' tired with all that cooking, so I'm just glad today is still a holiday for me. Maybe I'll have a quick nap now...
