Monkeys, Pecans, and Kids

My what a weekend we just had! If you caught Friday's post, we hopped on the Mega Bus on Saturday to celebrate a great birthday in the great state of Texas. Kevin's grandma turned 80 this weekend. What a precious family time we all had on Saturday. I truly did adore being surrounded by so many God loving family who obviously adored each other. What a blessing!

To recover from the busy weekend (see some highlight pictures below), I took Monday off of work. Husband and I got some much needed rest and one-on-one time together. We worked on my blog, took a walk(in the rain, good one meteorologist husband), cuddled and made some delicious last minute white chili (recipe to come Thursday, I think).

Us and the birthday girl (and her hubby)// we got to see some precious friends too for lunch on Sunday after visiting The Village Church pastored by Matt Chandler// Candied pecans I made for the party (they were a hit! So easy to make!)// The husband and I did some country dancing with a couple friends Friday night in OKC// Water! Living in Oklahoma "where the wind comes sweeping down the plains"you don't see water much so this was a nice sight// This little 5 year old girl made my day at the party (After talking about bunk beds ,Addie leans over and whispers, "I know that now, you and Kevin share a bed because you're married now" -Yes that happened)// We used google+ hangout to catch up with Kevin's sister and dad who couldn't make it//  A beautiful Texas sunrise! // My monkey husband// One of my sweet bestie! // The last two illustrate my inability as a designer to simply enjoy the merchandise in a store...I see everything else: light fixtures, wall treatment, ceiling treatment, check out stand...

Speaking of updating this little blog, have you noticed the mini face lift? None of it would be possible without my awesome husband. So blessed by his tech savvy mind.
