Easter Weekend recap.

A beautiful Easter weekend, it was.

I spent all day Saturday baking lots of goodies for my friend, Jesse's benefit show. As of Friday, he has been cancer free for 7 years and he and his band (The Gills) are starting a foundation for Leukemia. I love the idea and wholeheartedly support them, so it was the least I could do. It was a good time and they raised a generous amount for their cause.

Matt, Alex and I getting everything ready for the bake sale!

Sweet Alex and I. I'm fully conviced that she is the most gorgeous girl in the world. Not even joking. She's also got an incredible heart. Just love her.

Saturday was a bit lazy to begin with and then Alex came over and we hung out for a bit and then had a birthday party for our friend later that evening.

Ben was being mega sketchy and kept putting off coming out to meet up with us. Honestly, I was getting super irritated being that I had hardly seen him all week due to all of the rehearsals and such he had to attend as he played in the church band on Easter Sunday. I think I may have projected that annoyance in my voice on the phone with him and soon after I received a text that read, "babe, just trust me".

Later on that night he came out and met us all for our friend's birthday and then afterward, he drove me home, making a pit stop at his house first and foremost. He demanded that I close my eyes tightly and follow his lead...which I did. He led me through the garage and around one of their vehicles and then told me to open my eyes. Before me was a GORGEOUS piece of furniture/record player (that still works!) that he had bought and refinished for me. He worked on it all day long in the heat of the sun to make it perfect and perfect, it is. I'm in love! Such a sweet and thoughtful easter present. I just love that guy. He is too good to be true.

I admittedly felt ashamed for acting out of my annoyance earlier in the day and apologized profusely. Sheesh, what a way to make me feel bad.

This picture isn't very good quality and due to the position of it, I had a difficult time getting a good one. I'll post a better one once it's in the apartment. I just absolutely adore it!

Sunday was obviously Easter Sunday. I braved and went to the 8:00 service (barely got out of bed in time) and then went downtown to hear Phil Wickham at the Saenger Theater. It was great. Afterwards, I went home and crashed as I waited for Ben to finish playing drums at all 4 services that the church had. Insane. OH and on Friday night at their Good Friday service, there was a technical difficulty and due to a sound spike, he suffered an acoustic rupture of his eardrum that caused bleeding and severe pain. He's supposed to be going to see a specialist today. Poor thing had to play drums at 4 services in pain. I felt/feel so bad for him! :'(

I made him an Easter basket filled with some of his favorite things. He loved it :) He took me out to dinner and then we went back to my house and watched a movie. It was glorious.

Such a good weekend!

I hope you all had a marvelous weekend and a Beautiful Easter as well!
