Weekend Recap

Hey friends!

Sorry I haven't blogged much lately! Lots and lots of stuff going on! The days are full of watching Brennan, or Brennan and Kennady, MOPS, Bible Study, playgroup, grocery shopping, cleaning the rental house, unpacking, unpacking, unpacking, etc. Thankfully this weekend was a little bit of a break and we got to catch up on some things. The third Friday of every month, The Met hosts Common Ground, which is a time for women to get together and hang out while working on all sorts of crafty-stuff. Some knit, some sew, some scrapbook, some just hang out and eat (yummy dessert is provided). I am working on a special scrapbook project so I went and got a lot done. Uninterrupted time to work and hang with girlfriends? Yes, please.

Saturday I woke up bright and early to hit up the Canyon Gate (our neighborhood's) garage sales. It was a bust. There were lots of garage sales, I just didn't find anything. We spent the rest of the day working on the house- Jon built wooden shelves for the garage and I washed the windows inside and out.

There aren't basements in the south. Did you know this? So we are using half of our garage to store items that were in our basement, hence the shelves for all our rubbermaid tubs. The other half will house our CRV.

Saturday night, Jon and I went out a date to celebrate our 7th anniversary! After working in 90 degree weather, we were ready to shower and clean up and eat!! We got lucky and someone cancelled their reservations at The Melting Pot and we were able to get in, woo hoo!! (note to self, don't wait until 3:00 day of to make reservations next time).

It.was.awesome. It was our first time and we looooved it. We were there from 7:30-10:00 just talking, taking our time, eating, relaxing. We got the Big Feast four course meal which included cheese fondue, salads, our main course (filet mignon, chicken, pork, shrimp and beef tenderloins) and chocolate fondue for dessert. Our server was so awesome, she took our photo and printed out the picture for us and gave us complimentary champagne. I was so full, it almost hurt (ok, it did hurt).

Sunday, after church, we went to the Art Car Parade in Houston with our friends, Andrew and Cathi (remember this from last year, mom A?)

(did your children ever go through a "the camera is the enemy phase?" B refuses to look at the camera.)

Did you also know that the south has fire ants? They do. And they are the devil. We unknowingly put our chairs down in fire ant heaven and Brennan has a few bites to prove it. I hate those things, part of the curse I tell ya.

This was my favorite car:
