Five on Good Friday

Friday, March 25, 2016

Happy Good Friday everyone!! Even though it's more of a somber Friday, it truly is GOOD! Jesus died on the cross for US so that we may spend eternity with Him - Praise Jesus!!

While we were out walking the other day during lunch, we stumbled upon this TINY baby deer! Oh my goodness, he was the most precious thing ever and he was just laying out in open grass!! We couldn't believe it and were wondering where his mom was. We took another lap and by the time we got back, he was gone so we're saying he went into the nearby woods with his mom and is safe and sound.

Is he not the cutest thing ever?! I was dying to go over and pet him lol

I've been having a little bit of a rough week and I was so surprised to find a package from my mom with these adorable placemats!! Could they not be more perfect!? I'm obsessed and it definitely made my day yesterday :) She also sent us some yummy Easter goodies - I love that she still sends us Easter "baskets"

I couldn't find a link to these online but she got them at Homegoods

Have y'all noticed the new changes to Bloglovin? I'm not going to lie, I'm not a fan of the whole "all the articles your followers like, shows up in your feed". I get the idea but now my feed is filled with all sorts of blog posts that I didn't necessarily want to follow and it's taking me forever to get through them. Does anyone else feel this way or am I being cynical?

Stephen is in charge of the operations side of building and controlling the arm (Arm Control Engineer - ACE) that the astronauts will walk out on in order to get into the capsule for the new human launches that his company will be doing next year. On Monday, they had a big press conference and the Orlando Sentinel did a piece on it. The article and video turned out alright but it's still cool! The article and video is HERE. You can see a quick snip from Instagram here.

I can't believe it's actually Easter weekend already! Since Stephen's dad is a pastor and since my family is out of state, every year we go down to his parents in Okeechobee for Easter. It should be fun seeing everyone again - especially our niece ;) We always go to the sunrise service since Stephen has to help setup, then we go home, eat Easter lunch and color eggs (the boys never did this growing up - my SIL and I had to show them how it was done). Usually within that time, we have an egg toss contest and the brothers do a raw egg toss. This year, my SIL got a craft for us to do instead of painting eggs - can't wait to see what she picked out!

Let's take a quick walk down Okeechobee Easter memory lane with crappy pictures lol

2013 - We were engaged this Easter

And we took our first air boat ride!

2014 - Our first married Easter


Lauren (my SIL) was newly pregnant and was hiding it from everyone last year - can't wait for Siena's first Easter this year!
