Easter Weekend 2013

Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  It ties for 1st place with Christmas for me.

Easter is also very special to Kev and I as a couple. Last Easter Kev was baptized and you can read all about it here and here.

This past weekend definitely had a different feel to it. With my grandmother being in the hospital here in Lex for over two weeks, my family and I have just been plain exhausted. My parents have been staying with Kev and I off and on since St. Patrick's day as they live 2.5 hours away from Lexington.
We decided to make the best of the weekend and took a needed break from our recent reality on Saturday night, and enjoyed some time outside of the hospital together. Exactly what the doc ordered!

My hair is finally growing!!! Ok Ok- you know there is some wee bit of weave up in there. Fake it till you make it right?!?

Baby Bro, his gf - Brittany, Hubs, Momma and Moi headed out for some sushi and hibachi grill grub.
Daddo would not be meeting us till Sunday for Easter festivities.

We had so much fun getting our faces soaked with sake by our hibachi chef and we made our best attempt to catch flying shrimp in our mouths.

After dinner, we checked out the new hot spot in Lex called Coba Cocina.
I have been intrigued ever since they started building this place. It looks like a 3 story night club you would see in Las Vegas. What the heck is it doing in Lexington, Ky? Not to mention, in the two weeks it has been open there has been an hour to two hour wait list. Say what?!?
Coba is a 3-1 stop shop in one building. Think one part restaurant, one part gelato bar and one part bar/nightlife area.
Did I mention it has the world's largest private jellyfish aquarium? Again - so random and bizarre to have this establishment here, but I am still so intrigued.

We headed to the gelato bar and it did not disappoint.

The remainder of the evening Hubs and I got the rest of the fam hooked on Game of Thrones. We are semi-obsessed with the HBO show. Any other fans out there?

Sunday morning, the sweetest Easter bunny ever stopped by the house and left this .....

there was a sweet lil Ulta gift card in mine - that momma bunny knows me well :-)

We went to the Sunday morning church service and it was so powerful, emotional and spiritual. It was so great to have them all here and go to church together as a family.   

We met my daddy after church for brunch. With all the craziness going on at the hospital, it was just going to be too much for momma and I to prepare a big Easter meal. All that mattered is that we were all together.

After brunch we went back to the hospital to spend the rest of the day with my grandmother. My mom had made her an adorable Easter surprise. She was having such a good day that day, sitting up laughing and smiling the whole time we were there.
We met with all the doctors that would be involved in her heart surgery scheduled for Monday .....

.....and praise God she came through it all beautifully yesterday and is doing amazing. 
It was a great weekend and we are so very blessed to be together and for my grandmother's health.
Lots to be thankful for!
