Happy Easter Weekend (+ An Announcement!)

Hey y'all!!!  

Happy Monday!  I hope this Monday finds you all still in a ham or turkey feast coma!  I'm currently feeling that way as I type this! (Sunday night)

We've had such a great weekend!  We decided to stay home because with the wedding just around the corner & some other things taking place as well, we thought it was best.

Thursday night we went to a Texas Rangers pre-season game with some other friends.
The Rangers were playing Mexico City & Matt has a friend who's brother plays for them so, it was fun to not only be back at the ballpark but, to get to see him play as well!
 Here's some shots from our crazy, fun Thursday night!

This was as good as it was gonna get with a group pic... haha!

We had a lot of fun, as you can see & enjoyed spending the night at the ball park with our friends!

Saturday night Matt & I had a date night at the movies... we saw Silver Linings Playbook.  We both thought it was a good movie but, definitely different.

The rest of the weekend was spent doing some things around our home & working on wedding stuff, of course!  Sunday we had my Dad & brother over for Easter lunch.  I cooked a ham for the first time ever & it turned out sooo good!  We have plenty for left overs this week, that is for sure!
Ballin'!  Everyone went back for seconds!

WAIT!  Don't go yet.... so, do y'all remember when I was yackin my jaws about how 2013 was going to be the year of NEW things for Matt & I... just after he had lost his job?

Well, that was almost 3 months ago... 3 months!

I am so so SO over the moon happy to announce that Matt has been offered a job, accepted the job & TODAY is his first day on the job!!!

It's in a completely different field than where he was, but, exactly what his college degree is in.  It doesn't pay as much as the previous job but, the amount of experience he'll be getting in this field is priceless!

I am just so happy for him & I know he's excited as he begins this new chapter.
THANK YOU to each & every one of you that sent your thoughts & prayers our way over the last few months!  We are so greatly appreciative to all of you!  This hasn't been the the easiest of challenges that we've faced, especially right before our wedding but, we made it through & I know we are that much stronger for making it through!

(I mentioned on Twitter that there was more than 1 announcement but, I've decided to wait just a leeetle longer until it's more "official".  Sorry!)

So, let life resume as it should & the wedding planning continue!!!  :)

How did you spend your Easter weekend?
