I'm at my parents' house through Easter, so I got to wake up to this lovely view:
|There's not usually a big pile of dirt out there - my dad's filling in a depression in the yard and the dirt still needs to settle before he plants more grass.|
This morning I went to the gym with my mom and got to take two classes! So fun. I did zumba first (after making fun of my mom for years about taking zumba, she's turned me into a huge fan) and then an awesome ashtanga yoga class. With tons of arm work. Ouch.
We stopped at a local health food store, Earth Fare, and I finally got to try out the kombucha they have on tap. Looks like a coffee cup, but it was actually filled with delicious and nutritious kombucha. Felt kind of like getting a beer in a to-go cup since it was on tap, haha.
I've also been sipping on this new-to-me tea. I fell in love with Earl Grey tea when my host mom would make it for me during my semester abroad, but I only heard of Lady Grey tea recently. It's delicious - kind of like a light version of Earl Grey. Plus it sounds so feminine and pretty, dontcha think?

I don't know about you, but I can have a tough time coming up with a great gift for someone, especially when that someone is my dad. If he wants something/ needs something, he tends to just buy it for himself. And he doesn't like knick knacks or things without a real purpose.
Awhile ago, I saw a LivingSocial deal for a website where you can make your own photo books, and I decided that would be something that could be a great gift.
So this year for my dad's birthday, I put together a book of old slides which my sister had scanned to the computer, as well as a few other photos I had previously scanned, and made this book for him.
|Doesn't my grandpa look like a movie star in that top picture with the ukulele? It's my favorite.|
And because I can't resist, some more nature photos from my parents' yard:
Almost Easter, aka chocolate, time!
The bunnies are ready.
So am I. I can't wait for the Easter bunny to fill up my Easter basket. (That cute little chicky is mine.) And yes, I do still get an Easter basket. And I love it.
That's all, folks.
