Finally...an eventful weekend!

Hello friends!
 
I busted my hiney at work last week so I could spend time with my family this weekend without having to come in to work on Saturday, and it was well worth it!
 
Friday night, we had our Easter program at church. We have been practicing multiple times a week, so a lot of work went into the production. My family drove up Friday afternoon and came to watch the choir. I was so proud of the finished product! I've really enjoyed getting to know all the choir folk.
 
 Whitney was so sweet and came to see me and Mary Margaret sing!

  I've missed my sister!

Saturday, the girls went to watch Million Dollar Quartet at the Orpheum. Oh my goodness....if you ever get the opportunity to watch this show, do it!! It was sooo good! It was especially cool to me since Sun Studios is right down the road from the place we were watching the show.


This is my sister's vine video. I was obviously completely oblivious to what she was actually doing. 

April got her picture with "Johnny Cash" as we were leaving! He did such an awesome job playing Johnny!


After the show, we went to eat an early dinner at the Majestic. It was delish!


Since we had gone to an afternoon showing, there was still plenty of time left to do something Saturday night. Unfortunately, the family had to leave. Rodney and I rented Chasing Mavericks from redbox. It got terrible reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, but we both really liked it! 

Sunday morning, it was time to celebrate Easter. We were kind of sad not to be with any family on Easter, but I'm thankful for such a great church family to celebrate our risen Lord! Easter is such a wonderful reminder that our God's not dead!

 
And to round out the weekend, I cooked dinner Sunday night. This is how you improvise when you realize you don't have toothpicks. Kabob sticks work just fine! I also didn't know I don't have a mallet/meat tenderizer, so I had to flatten the chicken with the bottom of a pan. I will be adding a mallet to my shopping list in the near future. Mine turned out looking nothing like her's, but looks don't matter. As long as the tummy is happy. I made this recipe for Baked Chicken Stuffed with Pesto and Cheese, and I will definitely be making it again. Quick, easy, and absolutely delicious!
