Hosts with the Most(s)

We hosted our first holiday!

Cory and I successfully hosted our families yesterday for Easter brunch. In my world, it’s an accomplishment if I can time my Keurig coffee and oatmeal to be ready at the same time, so the idea ofΒ having to have five items in one oven come out ready at the same time made me nervous.

Thank God I have a husband who keeps his cool in the kitchen, and a mother who knows how to calm me the eff down.

We ate, drank mimosas, and chatted through the afternoon. I tried a bit of everything that we made, but didn’t eat nearly as much as I normally would have. I think I was too hopped up on making sure that no one was keeling over and vomiting from my cooking.

I’m glad to report that no such thing occurred. πŸ˜‰

To be vague, things have gone on during the past few weeks that made me hypersensitive to the fact that I am truly blessed to have the life that I do. Being able to spend the day with my husband and our families made my heart swell.

After our families left, Cory and I actually fell asleep watching the Master’s. Nevermind the fact that I fall asleep every time golf is on TV, but I was exhausted from the day! We only got up to eat and ended up going to bed quite early. It was perfect!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter, Passover, or spring-y Sunday! Whatever you were doing, I hope it was time well spent πŸ˜‰

Let’s chat – Do you celebrate Easter or Passover? What did you do? If not – what was the best part of your Sunday?

    Easter is always spent with both sides of the family separately. On the same day. This means two huge meals within about five hours. I am not eating for a week.

    Congrats on your first hosting!! Looks like it was a hit πŸ˜€

    Is this your house? I absolutely love the brick and wood together. Awesome! And congrats on a first time well hosted holiday! Always nice to have our loved ones around that balance us out when we are stressed. πŸ˜‰

    Aww, you’re so cute! Glad everything turned out well and you got to spend time with your family! I’m also probably late to the party in telling you this, but your apartment looks super cool!

    I had a wonderful Easter myself – I actually got confirmed and received communion for the first time. πŸ˜€ Sad that my family doesn’t live in town and wasn’t able to come though, and I couldn’t go home since I needed to stay to get confirmed. Oh well!

    Nice job, girl! That is a holiday success!!!! :) And no one keeled over from the food πŸ˜‰ hehe

    Your family is so cute! I was kind of sad I couldn’t be with my family on Easter, but I’m going back to visit Ohio in a month or so! I can’t wait!

    Your apartment/ house looks so cute! Love the exposed brick wall- reminds me of a loft :) Looks like you had a fabulous and tasty Easter! We kept it low-key but had a Honey Baked Ham [YUM]!
