This time 1 year ago, I was getting ready to walk down the aisle and become Mrs. Lorson. I was so excited to start our life together and see what our first year together had in store for us. Although we had some rough times, the good definitely outweighed the bad and I can say with all my heart that this has been the best year of my life. Thank you Derek for always being there for me and supporting me in everything I do. I’m so lucky to have you and I can’t wait to add our little bundle of joy into our family. I know you are going to be the best daddy in the world because you’ve already proved to be the best husband. Love you!

One taken on March 13th and one on March 14th
My mom, grandma and grandpa surprised me with Easter baskets full of goodies for the bambino too. So sweet of them, I cried…duh.
This baby is going to be very loved and spoiled. Derek’s sister brought up 6 boxes of 0-3t boy and girl clothes this weekend. I am giving the toddler clothes to Amy and Amber until I am ready for those but I have loved going through the tiny baby clothes. Can’t wait till we find out if this baby will be wearing pink or blue!

On April 6th, Derek took me to see Lady Antebellum for the second time. We always wait till the week of concerts to get tickets because we usually find really good ones. We were in the 9th row on the floor and paid about the same as people at the very top!
I didn’t know until they came on stage but Thompson Square was the opener. I didn’t think I had heard of them but I knew a lot of their songs and they are such a cute couple. They sing Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not (love that song).
After they came on, Darius Rucker aka Hootie from Hootie and the Blowfish played. I think he is such a great singer and Derek and I were happy he played some of his Hootie music.
Lastly, Lady Antebellum played. I liked them before but really fell in love with them when we saw them with Tim McGraw last year. It was actually at their last concert that we heard our wedding song and decided to use it instead of the one we were planning on using. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Sadly, they didn’t sing it this concert but they still put on a really good show.

The week before Easter, my brother and his loan officer hosted an Easter egg hunt. It was at an amazing park and was complete with the Easter bunny and 1,000 hidden eggs! Amber and I took Aiden and had a great morning.
Saturday night we went to my mom’s house for pizza and dye eggs. I think us adults had just as much fun dyeing them as Aiden did. Mom sent me home with way too many bags of our favorite Brach’s malt balls. When I gain 20 lbs, I will blame her.
Sunday was finally Easter and we successfully fit and fed 16 people at our house. We had my moms side of the family over and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Derek and I went to church before everyone came over and then we had a huge lunch and enjoyed the beautiful weather outside on our new patio furniture! Even the Easter bunny stopped by to hide eggs for Aiden! We were sad Amy and her family couldn’t make it but my mom still made all the kids the cutest Easter baskets.
We had a wonderful holiday and hope you did too!

Happy Sunday everyone! We were busy this weekend fixing our water problem in our backyard, planting new grass (thanks dad for coming to help!), attending an adorable 2nd birthday party for a friend of mine’s little girl, church, mowing, grilling out, attending an Easter egg hunt, hanging with family and our kickball game! I might add that our kickball team is 3-0. 1 game may have been a forfeit but we’re pretty baller regardless. So yes, we had a very busy but fun weekend. Since I am HORRIBLE about taking pictures, here is a post on things I am lovin right now. I will try and start taking more pictures and have a new post soon.
My new Nike Lunar Forever Shoes. I’m usually boring and stick to white, black and grey tennis shoes so they match pretty much everything I wear but I ventured out this time and got hot pink ones. I am loving them for the Spring/Summer
Our new Honda Pilot! This baby drives so smooth and has SO much room. If your looking for a 3rd row SUV and don’t want to join the minivan club, get the pilot. We are so happy with it and I don’t think it’s huge like some of the other 3rd row SUV’s we looked at.
Ocedar Pro Mist Mop. I was getting sick of buying swiffer pads and swiffer solution so I gave this mop a try. LOVE it! You can make your own solution which is so much cheaper then the swiffer stuff AND the pad is washable! I love the microfiber pad. It’s really soft on our wood floors. Bonus? The mop was only like $15!
Lady Antebellum music. Well I always love their music but I have been listening to their CD’s even more to get ready for their concert on Friday! We got really good seats and I can’t wait!!!!
The Voice. This is our first season we have watched and we are hooked. I don’t have a favorite singer because I think pretty much all of them rock. Can’t wait to see who wins. The judges crack me up too.
And last but not least, this list wouldn’t be complete without what foods I am loving! Here are 2 of my recent favorites
Sour Patch Kids Berries. I can’t go to the store and not buy these. They are just the perfect amount of sweet and sour. About to have some now…
Philly cheese steak egg rolls. We tried these tonight and thought they were SO good. You can find the recipe here. We’re gonna try them with a different filling the next time. This one was amazing but we got a few other ideas we want to try. Only thing I would add to the philly ones is sweet and sour sauce to dip them in. We didn’t’ have any but gonna try it the next time. They were also really easy. I used this philly steak which only takes 4 min in the microwave!
Have a great week!
