high five for friday

What a great week, birthday, wedding, road trip, and the 4th! Sheesh that’s a lot when I look back at it.

1.  Friday was my birthday.  After a quick breakfast and hair cut, I hopped in the car and headed down to Austin for the weekend.  I stayed in Georgetown with longtime family friends who pampered me for my birthday left and right!  It was SO sweet of them!

2. My friend Joanna got married on Saturday and I had the honor of doing a reading and being in her house party.  It was so much fun!  The bride and groom are high school sweethearts so it is about time the tied the knot.    Joanna and I bonded over numerous group projects, groups papers (yes, apparently that is a thing) and History of Costume flashcards in college and have been friends ever since.  Here we are at the rehearsal dinner and then at reception.

3.  Sunday I spent the day with our family friends.  We drank tea from their visit to England, made delicious orange muffins (I mostly supervised), and went to a GREAT burger joint, Mighty Fine Burger.  Also, we watched their dog, Sister, run around the backyard constantly on the hunt for prey.  Luckily she didn’t find any this time, although I hear she definitely wins in battles against birds.  I was sad to have to pack up and head back to the Big D.

4.  Hope everyone had a great 4th!  Tweed was VERY patriotic in his stars and stripes bandana.  Still loving his new haircut, by the way – shorter ears are the way to go!

5.  My goal for the weekend is to at least paint the last 2 walls of my bedroom.  I hope that by writing this here, I will have the accountability and push I need to complete this task.  Wish me luck!!

How was your week?

high five for friday

This past weekend was such a blast, the rest of the week is sort of a blur.

1. I spent the weekend with some of my best friends!  It was so great to have a day off of work and to spend a good chunk of time with the girls.  I was honored to be a part of my friend’s wedding as a member of the house party.  At the bridesmaid’s luncheon we chatted and drank endless glasses of passionfruit lemonade.  All I can say is YUM!  Didn’t get a good shot with the bride, I bet (hope) she has one on her camera.

2. That evening we headed over to the rehearsal dinner.  We sat outside at tables complete with ghost chairs, milk glass chargers, and mixed china with gold accents.  The tablescapes were beautiful, but I neglected to snap a photo.  So sad!  The great outdoors was beyond warm but we felt like southern belles with the hand fans that were provided to the guests.

3.  The wedding was an elegant and classic.  After such a long time together it was great to see the bride and groom finally tie the knot.  Many happy tears were shed by the happy couple and those in attendance.  The reception that followed featured a really fun wedding band.  We all danced the night away and celebrated the new Mr. and Mrs. Fowler.

4. Father’s Day was Sunday and my dad and I were pretty boring, I have to say.  We did run around town for a while and spent time with little Tweed.

5.  The rest of the week went by like a flash.  Nothing too exciting to report back, just the usual chores and errands.  Looking forward to a relaxing weekend preparing for the next summer wedding!
