We had such a great weekend! On Friday, I took a mental health day from school. Teachers, we all know this doesnt't really exist, but we need it! I feel like everyone needs just a day to clear your mind and feel like you're breaking the law by being out in public with the real world! I actually ran into a parent of a former student and seriously felt like I was busted.....lol! The life of a teacher......
Mark and I left Friday during the day to head up to Dallas for a busy weekend. We stayed with his sister, who just had a baby a month ago and visited with them until Saturday morning. We had such a great time hanging out and playing with baby E! Newborn babies are such a blessing and I absolutely love seeing Mark with babies. He loves them for about as long as he can stand and then passes them off to me. Bless his heart! :) He really likes them a lot better when they can talk. HA!
We left Saturday morning to head up to McKinney for a wedding that night. In the meantime, we got to see some of my absolute favorites! We met up with Shelby, her hubs and youngest son and Syd at The Pantry for lunch. It's always a good time with the girls formerly known as Zadows! I can't wait to meet Syd's sweet baby boy (who we all know will look just like Joe)...he will be arriving soon! Shelbs is one of my favorite things I found at A&M. Seriously, how can two people meet in Aerobic Walking and become like family??? I don't know, but I'm glad it happened! We also went fabric shopping at a store I have heard about for years. Seriously, if you don't want to buy fabric, don't go in there with Shelby! We came out with a bag fullllll of fabric and Mark's head spinning. He never knew what hit him. ;) Poor guy, he definitely needed a nap and that's exactly what he got!
After traveling so much, we both realize that you have to make time for yourself on these weekends or you feel so exhausted when you get back instead of rested after the weekend. We went to check in our hotel and completely lounged around until it was time to get dressed for the wedding that night. I was more than happy to see TU lose and do absolutely nothing until I had to get dressed. Amen.
The wedding was at 7 and we had an absolute blast! I loved all the little country details that some people might not have noticed but being a small town girl, I definitely did. Any wedding where the bride and groom dance to Dolly Parton is a wedding I want to attend! I seriously love Dolly and all people who share my love for her as well! The Cotton Mill was the perfect location and we really had a great time with great friends as always. We hit the road on Sunday to watch our poor Texans lose to the Cowboys and have gumbo with my parents.
All in all, it was a great weekend! Hope you had a good one!
