post-lent binge.

Sooo my creativity has been FAR from flowing lately, as I feel like I'm experiencing a permanent hangover/depression since the return from my trip (not to mention I have been catching up on the abundance of work that I have negelected in my last month and a half of travelling...).

On a happier note...4 day week! Thank the Lord (literally)!

No work on Friday, thanks to the Easter festivities (?) beginning...and banks/markets being closed! Hallelujiah! I will be heading home immediately after work tomorrow, in anticipation of spending my entire weekend being fed and taken care of by ML (can.not.wait). Not to mention, what better place to spend a sunny spring weekend than in the burbs!?

What am I looking most forward to about my weekend (Other than spending some serious QT with the fam)?? My Easter basket...DUH!

Easter candy is fabulous. Not only is it yummy, but it's bright (clearly that portion won me over) and cheery at the same time!

Below entails the contents of my Easter basket (I know this, because ML will ask me to go purchase the goods to go IN the baskets circa 8 pm on Saturday...and NATURALLY, I will pick all of the things that I want!)

1. Teenee Beanee Jelly Beans...The Americana Medley

2. Starburst Jelly Beans (Yes, I LOVE jelly beans. And YES I need both kinds in my Easter basket....don't judge)

3.. Cadbury Mini Eggs (SO yummy...until your mouth starts to hurt from eating so many....details details)

4. Peeps

6. If my cousin that is allergic to peanut butter wasn't going to be there...Reeses' Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures... single tear. (Good thing I bought a package of them last night and devoured nearly the entire thing already...perhaps the reason I was up half the night with a piercing stomach ache?)

7. And last but certainly not least....Haagen Dazs Vanilla Ice Cream. No, I'm not out of my mind...if you recall, I gave up ice cream for my lenten sacrafice this year, and come Sunday, it will have been 40 days and 40 nights since I have last had that deliciousness in my mouth (that's what she said). So, YES, I am going to ask that some ice cream be hidden in my basket. And I thought I would request vanilla, since it will go best with all of the other flavors the Easter Bunny is dropping off for me!

I hope you all have just as much success with your Easter baskets as I plan! (This post really goes to shit if ML decided to one-up me this year, and do the shopping herself...I guess we will find out on Sunday).

I wish you all the best of luck in your last few days of lent!
