This weekend was pretty great. Despite my headache for the ENTIRE day Sunday and part of Monday we had a good weekend.
Friday we went to a place called The Highball for dinner, drinks and “dancing.” There was dancing, but no one in our group took part. There was a band playing called The Copa Kings and they did a 30s, 40s, and 50s Big Band concert. If you live in the Austin area this is a must for a date night, or a hang out with friends. There is bowling, karaoke rooms for rent and a snazzy lounge and concert area. Oh and I forgot to mention it has an awesome view of downtown! I’m so bummed I didn’t take pictures, it was so dark in there I knew they wouldn’t turn out.
Saturday was a friend’s baby shower that I helped out with. I made the cake and cupcakes. It was so nice to catch up with some friends I haven’t spent time with in a while and celebrate the impending arrival of baby Jude! I had fun doing the cake, haven’t done anything creative in a while and it was enjoyable!
Sunday Andrew and I decided to tackle the task of getting a desk chair. We moved the office into the main living space, but we’re still using a dining room chair that is WAY too tall for the desk. Andrew has been a really good sport about using that chair, but it was past time to get him something more appropriate. I didn’t think we would find something our first day out, but we did and it was just what we were both looking for. He wanted something wooden and traditional and I wanted something that was padded, and looked more like furniture than a desk chair. Here is what we came up with and I couldn’t be more thrilled!
Here is a belly shot from Sunday. I take one each week and text it to Stephanie. Sorry I don’t post them enough, but it’s just weird to have a belly and really weird to post it for everyone to see. You can keep the comments to yourself unless they are nice! I don’t need to know that I am “bigger than you think I should be at 17 weeks.” Can you believe people actually say that? Well they do!
Last, but not least, I finished this book:
Oh.My.Word. It was phenomenal! It is a must read, but I must warn you, it’s definitely adult content. Prostitutes, brothels, child molestation, you get the idea. It is a novel retelling of the Bible story of Hosea and Gomer and it is an amazing testament of God’s Redeeming Love for his children!
