Good Times

We had a really fun super weekend.  It was the best I have had in a really long time.  I love my kids, but I miss hanging out with just Gary.  He is my best friend, and having adult time is awesome.  We always have fun on date nights.  Friday night we went to the Stockyards.  The Stockyards of Fort Worth are so stinkin' fun for two Texas Country music lovers.  We thought about going to Joe T's, but changed our minds.  We honestly would have had fun at McDonald's!!  But we were celebrating so many things, we decided to have a ball.  And we we are before we left the house.

My honey, sporting a beard...

And here I am acting like a nerd...

I am really good at being a nerd :))

We went to The White Elephant, then we went to a few other fun spots.  Of course we had to go to The Basement.  And a fun girl was playing guitar and jamming out.  She was so cute and fun to listen to.  She and I really should start a band...ha!

Then of course a night on the town isn't complete if you don't visit The Lonesome Dove.  Everything tasted so devine.  I couldn't believe how yummy and delicious our appetizers were.  We had duck spring rolls.  They were to die for. 

Saturday Layla and I had a girls only lunch/shopping date.  We did a bit of shopping at Target.  She got a pair of pink cowgirl boots.  She is  so excited about them.  She also got a fun hot pink tutu skirt.  She has been asking for one for a couple weeks.  And since she is doing so well in school I felt like spoiling her a bit.  Then we went to pick up MeMaw at her assisted living home.  Tuesday is her birthday and so Gary grilled up chicken fajitas for her to enjoy.  It was a fun visit with the family.

Gary, MeMaw and Aunt Suzie.

After the birthday cake and celebration Gary and I took MeMaw home and we went to Grapevine.  We had a super fun time at Love and War in Texas.  We had dinner with some amazing friends.  It was a night to remember for sure!

My meal came with a piece of cornbread. I loved everything about it.  It tasted like cake. Mmmmmm :)  The cole slaw was good too. My meals both nights were wonderful.

Today we enjoyed a day of church, playing outside and football.  The weather was wonderful.  I love this time of year and really hope that the temps stay cool!  How was your weekend?

What a fun weekend! We went to the Stockyards a couple weeks ago but just for a little while and had lunch before heading to the Ranger baseball game. It looks like a lot of fun in the evening.

Angie you look great! You are so cute! I've been to the Stockyards once & I think it was almost 10 years ago when we went to Texas for Becky's bridal shower. I did NOT ride the bull :P I saw that cornbread earlier on Twitter & it looks delish!

Sounds like a really great weekend. Date nights are so important. Mmm...grilled fajitas! We had a great weekend too, the weather was cooler, Jamison went horseback riding, Caleb hung out with one of his favorite people (his Paw Paw), went to church, and we cleaned. Oh and I made apple crisp!
