My whole family went to Fleming's Steak House to celebrate my brother's birthday. My parents aren't pictured, but they were there, too. :) And yes, I'm from a family of glowing eyed zombies. Keep it on the DL. It's not something we like to publicize.

Girls Shopping Day .... with two cute little fellas in tow (you can see the tops of their heads behind us). We were on the hunt for Easter dresses and we each found more than one! That never happens. Usually, when you're looking for something you can't find anything. At least, that's how it is for me. But not that day!
Interesting story of that day: We were at the mall and I split off from them for a bit to try on some dresses. Mom had Levi and I had my purse and an armful of clothes. I noticed a man that seemed to be everywhere I was. When I was in the shoes, he was in the shoes - I was in the dresses, he was in the dresses, etc. I figured he might be shopping for his wife or something, so maybe he was trying to see what I was buying. A little while later, after I emerged from the dressing room to go find Mom and Hollie, the man jumped out from behind a clothing rack and SNATCHED MY PURSE!!!!! I was taken by such surprise that I didn't know what to do. I tried to scream, but nothing came out. He took off running and what did I do? I TOOK OFF AFTER HIM! We were sprinting through the store and my adrenaline was through the roof. I finally screamed, "THEIF!" and next thing I knew, my Mom appeared and knocked him in the head with Levi's diaper bag!!!!!! He fell on the ground and I burst into tears, grabbing Levi and my purse. It was the single most terrifying moment of my life.
It was also one of the biggest lies I've ever told. April Fools, y'all.

After Church we lunched at Cracker Barrel. We were waiting to be seated and Husby took a seat on the fireplace and folded his hands in front of him. Levi watched his every move, then climbed up next to him and gently clasped his hands, too. So sweet!

I caught a precious moment in the tub. Be still my heart.
Tuesday, March 29.
I whipped up a couple batches of homemade granola. It is my MIL's recipe, and it is the best. This is right out of the oven and before I added the dried fruit. I may or may not have eaten half a pan, hot out of the oven. ;) (The stuff is unbelievably addicting. Especially straight from the oven. YUM.)
That evening, I threw a handful in my mouth and a small piece went down the wrong tube and I couldn't breathe. Husby threw me on the ground started pumping my stomach. At one point I blacked out and he said I was turning blue. He kept pumping my stomach and out of my mouth shot a whole red gummy bear. The weird thing? I hadn't even eaten a gummy bear that day.
Got'cha again. April Fools.

Husby and I painted Levi's big boy room until after 2 in the morning. YIKES. This is me goofing off to stay sane around the midnight hour. Oy. (And the paint is not neon green! We had several bright lamps illuminating the room and it made this picture look like we were using glow paint. Haha.)

We bought a new house!!!
April Fools. :)
I snapped a pic of this house in our town. It is crazy huge and a continuous project for the owner. He says that adding on to his house is his hobby, his passion. It is absolutely enormous and keeps on growing. I can't imagine what it will be a few years from now!
And those are some of the tidbits from my life last week!
Happy Weekend, Loves!
(And Happy April Fools to all of you ornery's out there!!)
