Easter? When!?

So it's like Easter, isn't it? I'm having kind of a "I'm a bad mom" moment. I've been so wrapped up in myself and my surgery these past few weeks, I've kind of spaced Easter. Oops.
I consider myself a Christian, but Easter has never been a huge deal for our family. My husband and I have NO family nearby- so it's just us. It's just not the same celebrating when it's only you at the party, KWIM? Easter only gives me a good reason to eat, and eat a lot.
So today I'm on a mission. I'm going to go get eggs, and chocolate, and some dye, and we're going to dye some eggs tonight, darn it! I'm not sure how I'm going to manage it...."no Ava, you cant sit on Mama's lap because her breast implants are still tender...". Nice. I'll make sure to get that on video....
I've decided I'm going to take us out to dinner tomorrow night. You know what the "Vegas way" to celebrate a holiday like this is? Go to a buffet! The buffets aren't just for the tourists....they're for the locals, too! After you live here long enough, you learn where the best buffets are, and where you can get the most bang for your buck (like champagne with your brunch- yum).
I know my kids only care about their Easter baskets and what they'll get in them, and they'll forget about Easter by Monday but, I'm into making some memories. Even if it means only my husband and I will remember. We can tell the kids about it when they get older....that's what parents do, right?
P.S. I will post a surgery update later this weekend when I'm done feeling like a bad mom....

I can hear it now "Remember that Easter mom got her boobs done?". Thats' going to be a fun conversation. :) I associate mine with Lola's birthday since they were about 3 weeks apart. LOL. Don't get to crazy in the kitchen, you still need your rest!

Kudos to you! I cannot believe you are up and about as much as you are. Even back to blogging and trying to "save" Easter, LOL.

Aww... you're not a bad Mom, the kids will love whatever you do! Make sure to rest & don't do to much!
