Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Happy Easter! I hope that you’re having a lovely Easter weekend with your favorite people and bunny rabbits – be hoppy, friends! ๐Ÿ˜‰ This weekend, I was lucky to have my dear sweet friend from Canada here with us – and we’ve had a looooooovely time! ๐Ÿ™‚ On Thursday night, we had dinner at StoneWerks at The Rim (I had smoked salmon flatbread – so delicious!), and then stopped at my beloved Hills and Dales for a beer on the way home. On Friday, we did some shopping in the morning, met my folks for lunch at Tiago’s, and then headed down to the Riverwalkย on Friday evening! We went to Howl at the Moon, which I absolutely LOOOOOVE and never get tired of – and, as usual, Happy Hour at Howl did NOT disappoint! ๐Ÿ™‚ The musicians there are SO talented, the staff are amazing…it is always the best time! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I gave my phone to my friend to take pictures with while we were out – either she had A LOT to drink or had trouble operating the camera, because the shots she took were hilarious…not to mention BLURRY!!ย However, she did get a couple of keepers – check them out! ๐Ÿ™‚

Saturday was a quieter, thankfully – we met with my friend’s brother and sister-in-law for lunch (they live here in San Antonio, too! Great coincidence, eh?) at the new Hofbrau at the Rim…here’s a few pictures:

ย On Saturday night, all of us got together and colored Easter Eggs with my Wee One – and then we watched the movie “Hop”. I had just the best time, and enjoyed having people over SO MUCH!! I spend so much of my time on my own, it seems…so this weekend was such a great treat! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not even a little bit Martha Stewart-y (my poor child misses out on so many artistic endeavors because I kind of suck), but I tried. ๐Ÿ™‚

We had an egg-celentย good time! ๐Ÿ™‚ Woohoo!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

On Sunday, we had Easter dinner – my folks came over to join us, and it was a really lovely meal. I had to delivery my beloved friend back to the airport by 3:30pm, which stunk…the weekend went by far too quickly! However, I was so happy that she came, and we always love having her around…she’s just the BEST! ๐Ÿ™‚

Mmm….devilled eggs! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

ย I hope that you had a beautiful Easter weekend with your friends and family, and I hope that the Easter Bunny filled you full of the hoppiestย of happy times! ๐Ÿ™‚ Je vousย aime, mes amis! ๐Ÿ™‚
