i can't surprise quinn for the life of me! just the other day he found out what he is getting for his birthday and i just about lost it! he, on the other hand, surprises me about once a day. easter morning wasn't any different.

so, a few days ago i asked quinn if i could get jayden an easter basket, his reply was no, saying that he was too young and we shouldn't spend money on easter anyways. easter morning rolls around and i wake up to quinn and jayden's shining faces, quinn's eyes wide with a huge smile, saying, "did the easter bunny come?!"
i shot him a glance of "oh no you din't!" and ran out the bedroom door to find a trail of chocolate easter eggs leading from our bedroom to the living room, where i found a gorgeous daffodil plant, lots of candy, and a few other presents just waiting for me! he must have done this in the middle of the night! i jumped up and down and squealed like a little girl, with tears coming to my eyes thinking of how sweet and thoughtful my husband is. growing up with 10 kids in my family, we never got easter baskets, so this was so exciting for me.

seeing how quinn made me think that we weren't doing anything for easter, i didn't get him anything, and felt stupid right away, to which his reply was, "you give me something every day". awwwwwww. or in quinn's words, "how did a girl like me get a guy like you?"

rain rain go away

i want to be here

or here

or here

or here.....

just not here.

i was told that it rains nonstop here in the spring, so i wasn't shocked to wake up to the sound of pitter pattering on the roof. the weatherman was wrong yesterday so i was hoping he'd be wrong again today. we had a gorgeous palm sunday, full of warm, sunny weather, in which we spent at our friends house getting our fill of food and the good lord's word. but once again, it is a dark, drizzly day where i just want to stay inside and cuddle with my little baby cuddle bug (who is learning how to walk as we speak!) after enduring months of this weather, i find myself dreaming of walking on the beach barefoot in hawaii, or on the lake with our good friends, or in cabo san lucas walking the streets looking for souvenirs, or in sunny las vegas riding the scooter with my man. but i guess that is why i gave our bedroom an island theme, for moments like these, where i can just lay on our beautiful handmade quilt covered in hawaiian plumeria flowers, or stare at the framed island picture that i tore from a hawaiian calendar, and dream of a beautiful, sunny day, sitting on the beach with a flower in my hair and not a care in the world. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
