Weekend Update: Easter Addition

First off, happy April Fool's Day. I am not a big prankster so nothing planned for you here!

I had a really great weekend. This included my parents coming into town. My sisters had to stay in NM. One working and one because she didn't get back from Spring Break till Saturday.

Friday we went out to dinner and just hung out.
I also made really bad cookies.

Saturday my mom and I took a shopping trip. I was able to get two rugs, a coffee table, and some other decor.
It was super fun! We still did not get a couch, dining room table, or bedside tables.
Hopefully soon though!
I don't want to ever rush into buying something I don't love.

While mom and I were out shopping, dad and Kevin worked on the kitchen backsplash. It has been a long time in the making, but hard to find time. Still needs grouted but I love it!!

See some of that decor? Still playing around with it...
I can't wait to share pictures of the house when it is finally put together and share in all our DIY stuff!

I also made some really good and easy crock pot Fettuccine Alfredo.
I can share the recipe later.

Sunday we all went to church. I haven't found "my" church here in AZ yet, but I think I liked this congregation.

Kevin and I before Mass

After Mass

Then, I made my first holiday dinner!
I was pleased with how it turned out. Best decision of my life was to buy a precooked ham with a brown sugar glaze. Love the sweet! Yum!

Added to the ham was cheesy bread and asparagus and red peppers.

For dessert I made a strawberry shortcake trifle. My first trifle attempt.
And the beautiful backsplash behind it!  :-)

A very good weekend!
I hope your Easter weekend was just as blessed!
Linking up here, here, here, here, and here!
