1. What is your  favorite Easter tradition?
The Friday before Easter (today!) my sister and her kids & myself and Olivia meet at our parents house and we dye eggs. This is SO fun, the kids have a blast and I'm pretty excited about it this year because Olivia is actually old enough to understand what to do! We're doing this today and I can't wait!

2. Are you a "shower" or a "long, hot bath" kind of person?
Definitely long, hot bath. I love taking baths, it's so peaceful and relaxing. My husband actually just put in a new jacuzzi in our bathroom and I love it! 
 

3. Can you parallel park and if so when is the last time you did it?
No, I can not parallel park. I would rather drive an extra 10 minutes looking for a normal parking spot than have to parallel park. The last time I did it was when I took my drivers test almost 9 years ago. 

4. What is your favorite Easter candy?
 
5. Easter: do you go all out with the Easter bunny or focus on the religious part of the holiday?
Definitely the religious part. I mean, don't get me wrong, we do gifts and an Easter basket and all the Easter egg hunts with Olivia but I love this holiday and the religious meaning behind it. 
I'll leave you all with some lyrics to one of my favorite Easter songs.
 
 
 "Arise My Love" by Newsong

Not a word was heard at the tomb that day.
Just shuffling of soldiers feet as they guarded the grave.
One day, two days, three days had past.
Could it be that Jesus breathed his last?

Could it be that his Father had forsaken him?
Turned his back on his son, dispising our sin.
All hell seemed to whisper, "Just forget it, He's dead."
Then the Father looked down to his son and he said..

Arise, My love.
Arise, My love.
The grave no longer has a hold on you
No more death sting
No more suffering
Arise...Arise...my love.

The Earth trembled and the tomb began to shake, and like lightening from Heaven
The stone was rolled away.
And this dead man the guards they all stood there in fright
As the power of love displayed its might
And suddenly a melody filled the air
Riding wings of wind, it was everywhere
The words of creation had been longing to hear.
The sweet sound of victory, so loud and clear.

Arise, my love.
Arise, my love.
The grave no longer has a hold on you.
No more death sting no more suffering
Arise...arise....

Sin, where are your shackles?
Death, where is your sting?
Hell; has been defeated. The grave will not hold, the king.

Arise, my love.
Arise, my love.
Arise....Arise....Arise
