After grandma's we went home and made a delicious Easter dinner with Garrett. We'd been wanting to make something special, but all the lamb was so expensive. We started looking at chicken in the grocery store when Eric spotted a thing of pre-seasoned lamb for only seven dollars! We were so excited and felt so lucky, so we went ahead and got it! Then on Easter, after baking the lamb in the oven, I noticed a tag on the bottom side of the package that said $21. My eyes got huge as I reached in and pulled it out of the trash. Turns out, the lamb was $7 a pound and we had indeed paid $21 for our lamb. I got sick to my stomach realizing we had paid way too much for our dinner, but I decided since it was already in the oven to just enjoy our dinner and not let it spoil the rest of the day. Our entire meal included lamb, asparagus, salad, chipotle deviled eggs, mashed potatoes, green beans, and corn.
Do you like my Easter tulips? Eric wanted to get me flowers but buying flowers was out of our price range. So, after church, we stopped by a friend's backyard who let us pick some to my hearts content! Then we came home and Garrett made them into a beautiful bouquet!
After dinner we went on a sunday walk (the snow had all melted by now) until dark. Then we came home and decorated eggs! Eric said he hadn't decorated eggs on Easter since he was a little kid, but that had to change because I still do it every year!
