{Weekend Wrap-up // Birthday weekend // Announcement}

Happy Tuesday friends!! 

I was going to post this yesterday...but decided I wanted to touch a computer as less as possible yesterday. It was a holiday for Nate & Mason so they were home. It was a normal work day for me, but it was pretty slow because it was a holiday for many of our clients. We got TONS done to the house and even started a couple of projects!! We were on our feet almost all day...and it hurt so good! :) I'm on a 'purge' phase where I want to clean out and de-clutter. I started with my bathroom yesterday. Its crazy how fast a girl can accumulate beauty products!! Then we worked on the bedroom. I used birthday gift cards to get a new bedding set, curtains and nightstand covers for our room. We are loving it! Hubbs is making us a new headboard using fence planks. I can't wait to see it come together. It was a busy, but very productive Monday!

But lets back track....it was such a good weekend. Friday night we went to dinner with my family to an awesome burger joint! Everyone loved what they ordered and I loved the atmosphere & decor. I wish I would have taken some pictures. 

Saturday morning we got up and ready and trucked on over to Fort Worth to meet up with The Haneys. We had a fabulous lunch on the patio at Uncle Julios. It was so nice to sit and catch up with them. Plus, I got to love on Baby T and that made my heart so happy. I barely sat down before she was climbing into my lap...LOVE! She played with my hair and my earrings and told me all about the FWSSR parade! Goodness I love that sweet girl! After lunch we went to Cabelas for some shopping! Always a good time at Cabelas. I am so so thankful I met Amanda over 4 years ago through blogging! She's one of my best friends and I love her dearly! Our hubbys love each other too, which is a bonus. We got home around 9pm {i think} and walked in to hear Mason say, "Mama where did these cupcakes come from?" My parent snuck into our house and left me cupcakes, flowers and birthday money! SO sweet!!!

Oh and the Haneys brought us a tail fin from an old windmill. We hung it in our living room and we're in love with it.

Sunday was my birthday. Nate worked until 9:30 am. It started as a normal day for me because I neglected housework the other days. So I had to clean, do laundry and grocery shop. The weather was nice so we go to play outside. Mason played with his neighbor friends and had a great time. That evening we went to dinner with Nate's family to Olive Garden. It was delicious and we found a new Moscato that we love! Winna winna!!!! After supper we went back to Nate's parent's house and they showered me with entirely too many gifts! It was a great time visiting with everyone and they made me feel so special! 



Amanda and I are bringing back Texas Tuesday! Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Not familiar with Texas Tuesday?

What is Texas Tuesday? A chance for you to show off the awesomeness that is TEXAS!! You can blog about anything; restaurants, vacation spots, venues, concerts, your hometown, shops, fashion, sports, etc. The linkup is not limited to Texans, we just ask that the post is about Texas.
