weekend update.



RECAPS
-- two copies of the secret life of walter mitty were delivered to my house last week. come to find out, in my excitement, i ordered the movie in march forgetting that i had already pre-ordered it in february. haha! somebody's getting walter mitty as a birthday gift this year! ;)

-- my core group and i have been dyeing easter eggs together for the past four years. it's one of our traditions. this year two of my girls couldn't make it so it was just alex, her hubs, and myself...dyeing easter eggs and watching finding nemo. the best.

-- i loved our sermon at church Easter morning from matthew 28. "and behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." what a beautiful promise!

-- we had a super chill sunday afternoon watching movies, soaking up the sun, and reading books. i finished "the book thief" and ugly cried my way through the last few chapters. it's heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time.

OTHER FINDS
-- this post on patience during the journey was what my heart needed to be reminded of this week.
-- the wonderful world of snails. who knew a snail's life could be so magical?
-- have you guys seen this video floating around the world wide webs this week?

Heather Cheek said...

I ugly cried over the book thief too! But I'd also say that it goes into my top 5 books of all time.

Chantel Klassen said...

Ooh, what's your method for dyeing the eggs, I love how they turned out! And Finding Nemo definitely takes me back! :)

Amy Hodgdon said...

I can't wait to watch Walter Mitty! It's on our netflix list! :)
I love your photos from the weekend, and that you haven't given up egg dyeing!
This is the first Easter that my husband and I have spent together- and it was his first time dyeing eggs! :) So fun!

<3 i really love these catch up posts (i think i tell you everytime i comment on one. heh)

Little Brave said...

also, now you need to see the book thief movie. as far as book to movies go, I think they did a pretty fantastic job.

Amy said...

can't wait to troll through these links! and uh...i love that you ordered two copies! that is brilliant! i can't wait to watch it now that it is out!

Amy said...

I love the idea of weekend updates. I've been trying to figure out how to incorporate my faith into my blog and you have inspired me with your Easter morning quote :) Thank you! I'll be hanging around reading some more posts. :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

love! can't wait to read it with my kids someday. those books seriously made me fall in love with Jesus more. :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

so fun! i watched the first one :) yes!...we read them as a family when i was little, and i've read them multiple times since!

Megan McIlvaine said...

it was seriously so good. i'm going to check out the movie this weekend!

Megan McIlvaine said...

weeeeeell, i don't really have a method per say. i use half a cup of hot water plus a teaspoon or two of vinegar. then i go all kinds of crazy with the dye until i make a color i think will look good. then i just let the egg sit in their for different time periods...depending on how dark or light i want it to turn out!! i do love how they turned out this time around!

Megan McIlvaine said...

yay!!! i can't wait to hear what you think about it!
um, this was the first time your husband has ever dyed eggs?? a momentous occasion!! i love dyeing eggs. we've done it ever since i was little! :) you are never too old for it!

Megan McIlvaine said...

bah! i know! i died.


and thank you, lady. :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

i am watching it this weekend!! i had to give myself a few days in between to recover emotionally before i dove back in again ;)

Megan McIlvaine said...

bahaha. i had lost my mind/was just so excited. :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

haha of course you are! we are the same ;)

Megan McIlvaine said...

well thank you, lady! i am so very glad you stopped by! :)

Samantha@Elah Tree said...

The Chronicles of Narnia is my favorite literary series too! Also, is that one of those glass egg contains?

Jess Elyse said...

Okay, there is so much I love in this post. My dad brought home Walter Mitty the other day and we watching it that night. I LOVED it! You summed up The Book Thief perfectly! That video about the World's Toughest Job was so good! I'm Pocahontas!! Chronicles of Narnia is my Harry Potter. But, I do like Harry Potter as well (seen all the movies, read only one book) And I despise olives as well. My mom ate them by the jars when she was pregnant with me and I really feel that is why I don't like them now.

Megan McIlvaine said...

i knew we were friends for a reason!! narnia for life. :)
i think it's porcelain? maybe? it's my friend's and it's from anthropologie!

Megan McIlvaine said...

yay! i am so glad you liked it! it was one of my favorite movies from last year.
i'm reading the harry potter books now. i got a late start compared to everyone else my age who read them in middle school. haha!
