On Friday, Andrew gave me a card and a flower that he made for me at school. Here's a picture of the inside of the card. I'm watering the garden. As you can see I have a killer tan. If you've ever seen me in person and know how ridiculously fair I am, you'll find that funny. Also, I have huge biceps. If you knew how little upper body strength I have, you'd find that equally as funny.
On Saturday my sister and I started out by taking our grandmother, Noni, out to lunch. It ended up being just the three of us, and it was a lot of fun. We went to Saltgrass Steakhouse, and sat out on the deck overlooking the river. It was a beautiful day for a nice peaceful lunch.
Late Saturday afternoon, Andrew, Patrick, and I headed to Austin to The Cheesecake Factory. It is one of my absolute favorite places to eat, but we don't go very often because it's about an hour away. It was Patrick's idea to go, and I wanted to take Andrew because he hasn't ever been. I knew he would love it, and he did! When we walked in he said, "Mmmm, it smells like chocolate and cheesecake." He takes after his mama when it comes to food.
Before we left. Sorry for the quality . . . iPhone pic. As a side note, I think the iPhone always makes my face look round (well rounder than it already is) and my teeth look crooked (even though I wore braces for four long years).
We shared a piece of Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake . . . heavenly. Can't imagine why my face is round . . .
After we finished eating we went to the mall and did some shopping. It's the last shopping I plan to do for a while (more on that later this week). I did make the mistake of going in Janie and Jack. I didn't buy anything, but I think I should be banned from that store. It seriously has the cutest clothes ever. I wanted to buy Andrew a really cute, really preppy little outfit, but if it doesn't have a superhero logo he's not interested. Boo! I also almost bought this for future use, but I resisted.
Have you ever seen anything more adorable?
On Sunday, we went to church and then had lunch with my husband's sister and niece, his parents, his aunt and uncle, and his cousin and her husband and son. Then Patrick and Andrew went back to the church to work on some stuff, and I headed home. I called my mom (who was out of town all weekend), worked out, and cleaned out the fridge. Not exactly exciting, but it made for a nice Sunday afternoon.
So that's it. Hope all you moms had a fantastic Mother's Day Weekend!
