A Birthday, Some Football, and Jewelry!

Well, It's been a while, so I have some catching up to do!

First of all, I had a great Birthday!  Between several lunches with friends, Birthday cakes and gifts, I'm pretty sure I celebrated the entire month of September!  The scales would agree with that!!  (Oops!)  It sure was fun, though!

Carrie took me to lunch and then we went to Kendra Scott to pick out my Birthday earrings!  Woo hoo!  I always have fun with Carrie!  We are two peas in a pod!

I chose sushi for our family celebration.  Yum!!

My boys agreed to a picture since it was my Birthday!  ;)

Max was excited about my Birthday too!  ;)

I may or may not have bought myself a Birthday cake.  (When you are 43 years old at my house and want a Birthday cake, you have to get it for yourself, and I'm ok with that!)

Speaking of Birthday cake, my sweet friend, Sacha, made me a cake at our supper club.  Okay, okay, I may have requested her to make me a cake!  Ha!Ha!  It was good!  Thanks Sacha!  :)

Enough talk about Birthdays.  Moving on.....

I cheered Jack on for his Fun Run at school!  It was a blazing 100 degree day, but the kids were troopers!

My sweet friend, Rita, talked me into hosting a jewelry party at my house.  We had fun playing in her jewelry box!

Friday night lights have been in full swing, as well as marching competition!  We LOVE this time of year!

These 3 are trouble!  ;)

That wraps it up for now.  Next up...2 surgeries, a visit from Mimi and then Halloween!

A Hill Country Getaway

We took a little trip to San Antonio for Labor Day weekend.

When I realized we would be be driving right through Waco, I knew I had to make a pit stop!  I was really hoping to see Chip and Joanna, but sadly, I didn't.  I did get a quick peak at their store though.  It was so cool, but SO CROWDED!  I will be back!

We knew once we got to the JW Hill Country Resort, we would probably not leave.  So, we stopped off in downtown San Antonio for a little sight seeing.  And boy was it hot!  Holy Moly!

The Alamo

We arrived at our resort and had to check things out!  This is the view from our hotel room...

 It was beautiful at sunset!

 We did a lot of lounging by the pool, sipping fruity drinks and eating guacamole.  The boys loved the lazy river (so did Bart and I), the slides, the big pool, etc...  It was so nice just to sit and relax and have fun!

Proof that they do love each other...

Since my pictures really don't do the JW justice, I stole a couple from the internet...

It was beautiful!

We got up early on Monday and headed for our drive home through Hill Country.  We stopped off in Fredericksburg for a little shopping and lunch.  It was a darling little German town!!

While I did a little boutique shopping, the boys found a couple of gun and knife stores and even a museum to keep them busy!

Well, that wraps up our little getaway.  I love making these kinds of memories with my family!  So fun and thankful for time away together!

Friday Night Lights...Oh Yeah!

It's that time again!  Time for some Friday night lights, baby!!  We love us some high school Friday night football games!  And we really love the Mighty Eagle Band!  Woo hoo!!

Pep Rally time again!

Way to go, Judd!

 Judd and Kelsey after the half time show!

Go Prosper Eagles!

Back to School!

Well, we have a 10th grader and a 5th grader!  How did that happen?!  Time, please slow down!!  

Traditional first day of school pic...

Judd got new glasses and his braces off right before school started!  Isn't he handsome?

Jack's first piano/drum lesson.  So far, he is loving it!

Can you see the resemblance in these two?  Holy smokes!  This was at an Italian restaurant in Frisco.

One last swim at the country club before we say goodbye to the pool for the year!

My sweet friend, Carrie, turned 40!  I had so much fun spoiling her on her big day!!

Pedicures for the win!
