 Nathan and I spent part of the weekend walking the nature trails at the local park which was a cool day! He love water and fish so we stopped at the various creeks and finally the lake at the park! The local park ranger and visitors interacted and engage with Nathan, who was all smiles and said his name to them!! Lynchburg is very Autism-friendly community!

Nathan was looking for frogs and tadpoles but its was "too cold" for them to be swimming!

Perfect #EasterMonday meal with #Easterham , my Mac and Cheese , roasted asparagus!!

During #Easterweekend , I used up several beauty samples from #Birchbox and other sources after long day of assisting my Mom in cooking, more cleaning (for our home its Major Cleaning/Day of Cleaning/Post-Cleaning/Put Everything Away Cleaning!!), and assisting family and guests! So here are my #SpringBeauty rituals that I did below:

After doing some major cleaning, I gave myself a #Easter #pedicure with my favorite colors from #OPI nail polishes using pink and gold theme!! And yes, I have varicose veins due to my flareups with #LivingwithCrohns disease but I decided not to cover them up because I will be among family and friends who care and love me during my twenty years of living with this medical condition.

I love a hydrating mask after a long day just before I go to bed such as this #Birchbox sample of #DrJart+ !!

This #Nugg beauty mask was very soothing and moisturizing mask at night which contains 3 application and you thinly applied to your face for 20 minutes before washing off!!

My eyes were very tired but these #eyemask did the trick before bedtime!!

On #EasterMonday I was ready to relax give myself a "Head to Toe" Relaxation treatment after all the holiday preparations and hosting!! Love the Number 7 hydrating conditioner which I used all of the white packet and the Ayres body scrubs!! 

Although this #EasterWeekend post is kinda late, I did enjoyed my busy weekend with my family!!
