Day Date

I know I have been saying that my summer is over many times before.. but for real this time FRIDAY was my last day of summer! Jeffrey had been planning on taking a half a day so that we could spend the afternoon together just the two of us. He decided to take the entire day off which was such a nice surprise because it had been a long time since we had gone on an entire day date. As we continue on this journey of marriage we both want to make sure we are making it a priority to make time for each other, so Friday we did just that. We woke up bright and early to get coffee at my favorite coffee shop in Dallas, Pearl Cup. We then headed over the Farmers Market where we had a blast walking by all the stands. We had lunch at the Pecan Lodge (I highly recommend this) it is only open Thursday-Sunday I think from 11 until the food runs out. It was incredible barbecue!!! We then went on a hunt for Blue Sky Soda. I had been dying to try one. We had to buy them in a six pack and after tasting them I do not regret that at all! They are delicious. We then headed back to Grapevine to see Batman (I also recommend this one) it was soo good! We ended our day with dinner in Arlington with our besties James & Krista. It really was incredible day.


I loved getting to spend the day with my best friend! I love you Jeffrey! My prayer is that I continue to be the wife GOD called me to be and that I always put you before myself. Thank you for loving me unconditionally!

Thankful for marriage,

Weekend Recap

What  a whirl wind of  a weekend. It was officially my last weekend of Summer, starting tomorrow I am back full time at work. It really has been a great summer. It was crazy busy at times, but oh so fun. It was our first summer as a married couple and it was INCREDIBLE! We give God all the glory for what he has done with us in our marriage this past 9 months. Anyways this weekend started off early Friday for me.. so here we go..

Friday: I woke up and made breakfast for my sweet friend Elaine. Texas shaped pancakes to be exact. We then headed off to shop for Ben & Jen's couple shower. We got so much cute stuff. Friday night we had a date with John Ryman a sweet little baby from our community group. We had so much fun keeping him while his parents had a date night. We cannot wait until the next time.




Saturday: We did lots of grocery shopping then got ready for our last wedding of the summer. We went with James and Krista and had a blast as usual. The wedding was gorgeous. Congratulations Fraley & Ty!







Sunday: We went to church and then I headed over the The Garcia's so that Amanda, Savannah and I could set up for The Davis' baby shower. It was such a sweet celebration of their precious baby girl! Congrats! Tonight Jeffrey and I are enjoying a night in complete with steaks, veggies, a glass of wine and maybe a RED BOX!






We had such a fun weekend. We are so thankful to have so many friends to celebrate with!


Thankful for weekends,
