TWTW - the one with Easter

Noon dismissal on Friday, holler. I got home around 1, changed the sheets, ran the dishwasher, packed up the car, and hit the road with the dogs before 2. Mae was my co-pilot. When we got there we went right to the beach so the dogs could frolic. I organized the efficiency unit with stuff we need for the season (tools, extra lightbulbs/batteries/etc). My label maker was afire.
Debbie arrived around 6 and we went to the Big K and Shop-Rite before having dinner at Piccini and admiring the newly installed exterior lighting that is so bright you could land planes near our house if there was room. We watched Pretty Woman and I painted my nails and called it a day at 12:30.
I was up at 6 and had the dogs down at the beach for about 50 minutes. They do not share my appreciation for watching a peaceful sunrise. They prefer to jackass around.
I putzed in the kitchen for a while, then Debbie and I went to Sunrise Cafe for breakfast, then stopped back at home to finish making ribs and walk the dogs. We spent the afternoon strolling on Asbury Avenue and found a new favorite shop: Blue Eden. We also picked up cookies from Crazy Susan's Cookies and went to Rite-Aid twice because it's like my second home since Wawa is still closed for repairs from the January flooding.
MFD arrived and Jimmy Mac joined us for dinner.  MFD was aghast that I had no marshmallows and improvised with Peeps on top of the mashed sweet potatoes. MFD and Jimmy went fishing and Debbie and I watched the Villanova game. We were supposed to do face masks but I passed out on the couch around 10 and slept until 8:15 the next morning. The dogs were pooped too.
So no Easter sunrise, but it was overcast. The dogs and I headed to the beach at 8:30, then we crapped around and had a lazy morning. MFD went to church, I cleaned the top two floors and made sweet potato treats for the dogs, Debbie made her famous deviled eggs, and we read magazines and relaxed and snacked.
Simple and early Easter dinner - ham, pineapple stuffing, steamed asparagus, and deviled eggs. The two blondes immediately passed out.
I took my bike for a spin and took the dogs down for a beach walk.
I got home at 6:30 and emptied the dishwasher, picked up around the house, did laundry, applied a face mask, showered, and was in bed reading by 9. Ahhh. The shore house has no central heat so it was nice to be back in mine.

Weekly food: leftover ham and ribs for dinners along with steamed veggies and the rest of the pineapple stuffing. Breakfast is breakfast burritos from the freezer and baby sweet peppers, lunch is leftovers today and I need to figure it out for the rest of the week.

I hope you had a fabulous Easter.

  1. Sounds like a lovely weekend! I haven't watched Pretty Woman in forever. I should fix that!

    My dog would have me water skiing behind her. She is a horse and loves water! There would be no staying out of it!

  3. What a great relaxing weekend. So nice!
    I love the dogs just want to frollick as the sun rises. Its probably like energy boosting for them to be out first thing in the day.
    Peeps on Sweet potatoes - I bet that worked well :)

  5. I'm kind of jealous it didn't rain all weekend at your beach like it did mine. No sunrises, no beach time, and a house full of guest. YUCK!

  6. Is that cheesy bread or pizza? It looks heavenly.
    I love that color on the wall of the shore house. So perfect for the beach.

  8. Truly living the dream. Perfect Easter dinner. Lol on the blondes passing out. Curious about your new favorite store Blue Eden and love the name. Eating a piece of my bunny cake decorated with strawberries. Used my version of Paula Deen's pound cake recipe. Excellent. No more candy decorations.
    Happy Easter Monday! Love Mae's new little pink harness. Love. Your. Momma.

  11. Mmmm I wonder if your pineapple stuffing is like the pineapple casserole that we have here in the south? I could really go for some ribs right now! Your bike is so cool!!! Sounds like the dogs got a lot of beach time, I bet they slept well!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yes, I made pineapple casserole too and it was so good. I forgot how much I love it. Too bad it has an entire stick of butter in it. :(

  13. Chicken parm and Pretty Woman: two of my absolute favorite things. Peeps on sweet potatoes- LOL, but smart. I actually hate marshmallows on my sweet potatoes (and in general) and always scrape it off. What do you mean no heat?! It's been warmer, but not that warm! Sounds like a relaxing weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I can always count on you for a gorgeous sunrise pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  15. that's hilarious MFD decided to use peeps as marshmallows! LOL So creative. Sounds like a nice weekend and your Sunday Easter dinner looks delicious! I didn't make any deviled eggs this year cause they're so time consuming and messy to make (well for me) but I absolutely regret it now. lol

  16. I loved the sunrise (+ pug) pic you posted...as you likely know I'm a sucker for a good sky :) Sounds like a nice little weekend; glad you enjoyed!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love your bike! You could name her Mellow Yellow, or Daffodil...
    Roasted peeps sound a bit barbaric.

  18. What a great Easter weekend. I got a label maker for Christmas a couple years ago and it's one of my favorite things in the world :) #organizerprobz right?! haha- also, your cookies from Susan's looks SO GOOD!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sounds like a busy but wonderful weekend! So much tasty looking food and as always your sunrise photos are stunning!

  20. Such a relaxing Easter Weekend down at the shore, and love that Mae road shotgun and was your co-pilot. LOL at MFD and his peeps instead of marshmallows! Cheers to a great week :)

  21. Easter at the beach... sounds amazing! We just drove an hour to listen to everyone talk over each other at lunch like they always do... : / Not the best. I would take the beach any day! Glad you had a good one, it looks so beautiful there! :) XO - Alexandra

  22. This seriously sounds like such an amazing weekend at the shore! I love that you got to hang out with your friend beforehand, and painting your nails while watching Pretty Woman sounds like the perfect Friday night to me! That sucks that you didn't get a pretty Easter sunrise, but the one on Saturday definitely made up for it! We have lots of ham for leftovers this week too!

  23. pineapple stuffing? what is this gloriousness? is pineapple an easter thing, my MIL had pineapples at lunch yesterday. i love pineapples. the food from Piccini looks AMAZING and i am super hungry now.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh man, that Peeps topped sweet potato pic is priceless.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Using peeps on top of the sweet potato - brilliant and so eastery. Also, I'm still dreaming about deviled eggs, I can't get enough of them. At our brunch, we ended up making more twice because we had the ingredients and people needed to keep eating them. I love holiday food.

  26. Your bike is so cute!! And YUM to the peeps! Thanks for linking up!! <3

  27. Sounds like a perfect Easter weekend! I'm so jealous of those beach sunrises, dogs and all!

    ReplyDelete
  28. That's some serious side eye from Mae in the front seat. The sunrise more than makes up for her dirty look though!! I love that you have a label maker as well. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Those sunrises though...It would give me some motivation to wake up earlier! Easter at the beach doesn't seem too bad. (Understatement!) :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. seriously just reading about your weekends and the errands you run exhaust me, glad you got to enjoy some down time at the beach house though!

    ReplyDelete
