Easter Blessings!

4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was rolled away. 5 As they entered the tomb, they say a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. 6 "Don't be alarmed," he said. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. - Mark 16:4-6 (NIV)

I was excited to be home on the beautiful day that we celebrate the rising of our Lord!
I was finally able to convince my mommy to cook for me (haha)
I was able to spend another amazing easter with my sweet Grandparents who really show what love is!

I hope every had a wonderful and relaxing break! Tell me what you did for Easter?

Our Not So Formal, Formal

It's that time of year when girls buy expensive ball gowns with matching shoes. Invest in tanning and getting their hair and makeup done for one all important evening called "Formal/Prom." A night dreamed about for years. Having a man at the girls side who has a matching suite and plastered smile on for all the many pictures and video's the parents will dish out.
As for me, I have never seen the point in going to prom or formal. I would much rather go out to a nice dinner with some friends or go on an intimate date with my boyfriend. The idea of spending way to much money on a gown, food, and having to listen to what I call "baby making music" all night in the hopes of having the night of my life, just doesn't appeal to me in the least. My opinion of this might change but until it does, having dinner with friends is a much better way to spend my evening; and that is exactly what I did.

La Dolce Vita
In Athens, Georgia is where my posy and I decided our formal would take place. An upstairs loft to a beautiful street in Athens was the setting for this Italian restaurant. The atmosphere was decorated in art all along the walls, a homey open view to the kitchen, and Italian music think in the air. Our night was filled with laughter, friendship and wonderful food! La Dolce Vita has the best Lasagna I have ever eaten! I would strongly suggest it for anyone! Our meal was also started with warm toasted bread and Olive Oil for the table to share! The night was fabulous and I can't wait for the next visit. This is a great place for a one on one date, or for a group of friends!!
