Is all this pollen really necessary?

Ugh! I have never seen so much pollen in all my years in the south! It's so crazy! Everything is yellow. Allergy sufferers beware!!

In spite of the yellow haze, we had an awesome Easter weekend! Saturday morning Jeremy went to our church to help set up for Sunday morning so they wouldn't have to be there super early. Kate and I went and got some shopping done with Amber then it was back home for lunch! We ate lunch then chilled for awhile until Jeremy was done mowing our much-overgrown yard (I'm sure our neighbors were grateful!). After that we decided to go to Publix to grocery shop. Now folks, I am an avid Kroger supporter, but Publix was have tons of "buy one get one free" sales so were off to explore a whole new world! Armed with my coupons and new knowledge of scoring a few deals, I was kind of excited! I'm really starting to get drawn in to the coupon world! I'm even going to a coupon workshop on May 8th that The Crafty Charlestonian is hosting. I'm so excited! (You should check out her blog because not only will she inspire you to save money on groceries, but she TONS of adorable frugal crafts!)

Anyway, Easter Sunday was amazing! I had to teach the 2 and 3 year olds for the 9am service (we usually only have one service, but for Easter we had two) and then I got to worship at the 11am service. I just gotta say, my church is awesome! I can't even describe how loving and wonderful it is! It is such a blessing to be able to serve there! After church we went home to get ready for our Easter festivities with our HomeGroup! We had egg dying...
Then we had an egg hunt and Kate even found the GOLDEN EGG! She was super excited! Especially because it had $2 in it! That little saver was in heaven!!

We had a wonderful time and lots of wonderful food! We had ham, sweet potato casserole, fried okra, corn bread, green beans, pecan pie, and apple pie! It was divine! 

What are YOUR Easter traditions? Do you spend it with family? Friends? Do you do fun crafts? Or make special recipes???

Not so much

Well, I'm not as big a fan of Tumblr as I thought I would be. It just doesn't seem as user friendly, so I'm staying here! Anyway...

This is Holy Week, as I'm sure you all know, and I have had a song stuck in my head all week so I thought I'd share it with y'all. Maybe some of you have heard it. It's on the Passions CD called Sacred Revolution. 

Sing to the King

Sing to the King who is coming to reign
Glory to Jesus the Lamb that was slain
Life and salvation His empire shall bring
Joy to the nations when Jesus is King

Come let us sing a song
A song declaring we belong to Jesus
And He is all we need
Lift up your heart in praise
Sing now with voices raised to Jesus
Sing to our King

For His returning we watch and we pray
We will be ready the dawn of that day
We'll join in singing with all the redeemed

Man, that song gets me every time. Even as I was writing it I started to get emotional. It's such an amazing hope that we have in Jesus!

I hope everyone has an AMAZING Easter weekend! What do YOU have planned??
