spring break 2011.

Our week in Texas for spring break was wonderful. It was pure fun and happiness from beginning to end. 

I never pulled out my camera during the week. We were so busy running around town and soaking up time  with the people we love, the camera was the last thing on my mind. I'll do my best at a short and sweet, almost picture-less recap of our time in Texas. 
  • We celebrated Kyle's 25th birthday...twice. The first celebration was at the beginning of the week while his younger brother was still in town on his spring break. Celebration part 2 was on Kyle's actual birthday and we at at a delicious pizza place downtown. 
  • My mom and I did some shopping. We did more browsing than purchasing but it was such good time with my sweet momma. 
  • We ate loads of delicious foods during the week. Between TWO cakes from Julie's, fajitas from Pappasito's and a plethora of other yummy meals, our tummies left Texas very happy!
  • Two of my very best friends came to my house for dinner and one of them even spent the night. It was SO good to have some time with my girlfriends. I don't get enough of that lately and I think it was good for all of us!
  • I was able to go with my mom to her ladies' church group meeting and luncheon. They meet once a month and I love when I am in town for their meetings. The speaker was wonderful and I always love getting to spend time with my mom and her friends. 
  • Tucker had a great time taking full advantage of couch privileges at my parent's house. 
  • I took full advantage of sleeping late as often as possible.
  • I enjoyed a girl's lunch at Lopez and was able to spend some time chatting with some fabulous mommas and babies. 
  • We finished off the week with a dinner party at Troy and Ivy's house. The guests included the Sturgeons and Baethges. I cannot say enough about what a great time we had!! It was one of the highlights of our week! We laughed until we cried and loved getting to spend time with three wonderful couples. We'll host the next party if they'll all just make their way to Georgia!
  • We stopped to visit my grandparents on our way back to Georgia. It was a very quick visit but we were glad to see them. And of course, Grammy sent us back with loads of treats. 
That's three boxes of homemade chocolate chip cookies and one of Grammy's peanut butter fudge. 
That's the short version of our week at home. It was relaxing and we're already anxious to go back! Summer will be here very soon and we're hoping there are long trips home and weekends at the lake in our future. In the meantime, we are enjoying our time back in Atlanta where the temperature is currently 42... a far cry from what we experienced in Texas last week!
