Prepare the bagpipes

Two things that will be the death of me by the end of today:

1.) All those Easter lilies. My allergies are staging a revolt. They're armed with muskets and are charging the walls of my sinuses.

2.) Eating my weight in Easter candy. I haven't had this much chocolate since that one Easter when Amanda and I went a teensy bit overboard with the baskets and ended the day lying in a pool of chocolate drool with green plastic grass stuck in our hair.

Aaahhhh! The joy of the easter basket. Currently my teeth are coated with that really unfortunate feeling layer of sugar. I have ODed on jelly beans, dove chocolate eggs, Peeps, Reese's peanut butter eggs and the Cadbury crunchy shelled eggs.
Happy Easter Rachel!

You create some great images. And by way, your talk was wonderful today. Yes, I did hear a lot of it, even over Kamryn's chattering and whining. :-) Thank you for helping me feel the spirit on Easter Sunday!

I can't imagine a better way to die than by eating my weight in Easter candy!

Some how the easter bunny hopped right over our apartment, so I only got one little bit of my nephews chocolate. But I did get some good ice-cream cake for my Grandpa's birthday! I love family birthday's!

The important question is: Did you paint your lips with your Cadbury MiniEggs? I have pictures from two separate Easters that are of us with blue lips. I haven't done that since, and I think this is the year.

Rachel!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yes, I've joined the blogging world. I did go camping by myself although more than half the campsites were taken. So many people on spring break!! It was still very nice and a much needed getaway. My family did get the last of the Easter candy boxes/baskets today, but the best part of all were the honey buns and the note that said, "I have a bun in the oven!" My sister is pregnant again (I'm still amazed at my 9-month old nephew). I'm so excited!
Hope you had a wonderful Easter!

Post a picture! Post a picture! Please tell me that you got a picture with the Easter grass in your hair and the pool of chocolate drool. . . I will trade you a "white-trash beard" picture for it. . . Please!!!

p.s. Who says losing your eyesight isn't any fun. . . I just glanced over at your "About Me" comment and mistakenly read it as: "I can't lap dance." Time for me to get some new glasses!

Au contraire, Rachel can lap dance.

I ate half a pound of Sees and a rabbit. Standard fare.
