Easter = Sugar overload.

Easter.
Not sure why I post for three days in a row and then disappear for two weeks.
I haven't been in the mood to blog this week.
I need to get out and see people more.

Last weekend, though, was great.
I celebrated Easter with my family and Matt's family.
Involved in the celebration was lots of good food and 
WAY TOO MUCH SUGAR!

On Saturday, Matt and I went for a 4.5 mile run.
In which, Matt totally kicked my butt.
Then we celebrated Easter with his family.

Cute bunny cake!
 We had grilled pork chops for dinner.
Then there was the much anticipated Egg hunt!

You may think I am too old to participate in such a childish event.
But let me assure you, I am not.
We each had our own kind of eggs with a few bonus eggs.
I even found the golden egg with $5. Score!
I wish I had pictures, but obviously I was too busy running around like a crazy person collecting my eggs.

Bring on the sugar!
I maybe, maybe went a little overboard on the candy.
The whole 'haven't been eating much sugar for the past 2 months' resulted in a terrible sugar rush.
There were peeps.


That was blown up in a microwave.


And came out at least 4 times it's original size.


 And maybe a little gooey and burnt.


Let's just say, no one ate that one.

Oh peeps, how I love you so.


What happened with that sugar rush you ask?
Well after consuming massive amounts of peeps, Whopper robin eggs, 
Reese's peanut butter cups, and gum balls, 
I was feeling slightly shaky.
Okay really shaky.

I was jumpy and hyper and twitchy.
And my stomach was hurting a little bit.
We attended the Easter Vigil service.
I had trouble sitting and standing still.
And of course, it didn't help that I was standing next to Matt's younger sister Kelsey who kept doing silly things that made me want to laugh.

The service was very nice even with my sugar high.
We had candles and there was much singing.
It was thoroughly enjoyable. 
A great Easter celebration.
Jesus Christ has risen!

After mass, well, that sugar high had started to wear off.
Leading to the inevitable crash.
I ended up falling asleep on the living room floor.

The next day, I celebrated Easter with my family.
And I made sure to watch my sugar intake better.
