First and foremost, Easter was wonderful yesterday. We went to mass bright and early and since it was beautiful out again we hung out outside most of the day. We did come in for a delicious dinner and an amazing Celtics game (more on that in a minute…)
Some pictures from dinner and most importantly dessert…
All set for dinner!

Ok back to the Celtics… At this point I don’t even care how up and down they’ve been lately because you know why? They put Lebron in his place yesterday, which in turn put Celtics fans in their place as well – their happy place. The game was a nail biter and I honestly didn’t know if they could finish. They were up twenty points at times – they were ahead the whole game – but at the end it was thisclose! I’m pretty sure Lebron along with the rest of the Cavs thought they were going to pull through and win, but they didn’t! I’m so proud of the Celts! C’s 117, Cavs 113
Yesterday was also opening day at Fenway – the Sox played the Yanks – and also won! Big day for Boston sport’s fans! Sox 9, Yankees 7.
http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2010/04/there_really_is_a_dr_dre-jay-z.html – Dr. Dre was at the game showing off some of his new ’Beats by Dr. Dre’ Red Sox headphones. He also said that his first single off his new album Detox features Jay-Z (called ‘Under Pressure.’ Sounds intriguing…)
