Weekend(s) Update.

Well I have had some fun weekends lately and realized I haven't posted about them!

- Opera! A few weeks back Patrick's boss invited he and I to go to the Opera with she and her boyfriend. We accepted, and I am sure glad we did! We saw Chorus! from the Houston Opera. It was a compilation of different chorus numbers from popular operas put to their own story. I loved it. We sat in a box (pretty woman style, minus the hooker part), and ate a fancy dinner beforehand. During intermission they had champagne and dessert waiting. A truly fancy evening, one I'll never forget!
- Last weekend - I went to visit my family for my dad's birthday. I got in town on Friday night. We ate dinner at Cafe Madrid in Dallas, which is a tapas restaurant. I recommend it for you Dallas-ites. Very good Sangria! On Saturday we went to the Fort worth Stockshow. Watched the auction, some some animals, rode some rides, and had a lovely day with my dad, kate, and steve. That night my dad made steaks, and we had potatoes and wine. It was tasty! I came back to houston on Sunday, it was sad to leave as always.
-Valentine's Day - yesterday was great! Patrick sent me two dozen roses - mix of white, pink, and red, in a cute white, pink, red vase (notice a theme) and a teddy bear. He picked me up at 730 and we ate dinner at Perry's Steakhouse in Sugarland. It was super tasty and they had a good valentine's day menu (assorted appetizers with shrimp, crab cake, sausage, and fried asparagus with crab meat, filet, and wedge salad with chocolate covered strawberries for dessert). He got me pearl earrings to match the ring he got me for our one year (james avery)! He is such an amazing guy and I am glad that he is my valentine, can't wait for many more!

This coming weekend should be super fun! On friday I am meeting Elaine and Kasey for Sing at baylor!! And then Saturday night going to see Robert Earl Keen at Billy Bob's with Patrick, Elaine, and Brian! Really excited, now just have to get through the work week (i get tomorrow off, yay!)

Much love.

yay: picking up food from My Fit Foods!

Celebrate good times.

#1: HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! My dad turns 56 today! I'm heading up to Arlington on Friday to celebrate with him this weekend :)

#2: Shelley and Dan are engaged!! I know this is a bit delayed but I was waiting till I had a pic of the two to post on here. Shell is one of my best friends from college. She and I met back in the old Collins days and Zeta pledge days. We had a great time throughout college, including a trip to Colorado, and lots of Zeta functions and late night fun. I also met Dan freshman year when he and shell first dated, and got to know him throughout our college years and beyond. I'm really excited for the two of them AND she has asked me to be a bridesmaind. Their wedding is coming up on May 16th!

#3: Tracy and Devin are engaged! Tracy is a friend of mine from law school! We met first year of law school during the first few weeks at the beginning of the legal journey. We had a lot of fun times during law school, including many Galveston Bay trips, Las Vegas, MS150, and other various nights of fun. She and Devin started dating 3rd year of law school. He is a great guy and very lucky to be engaged to Tracy. I can't wait for all their wedding festivities!

I'm glad it's Wednesday and I cannot WAIT to go home this weekend to see my family - trips to Dallas and the Fort Worth Stock Show are in store!

OH and Congrats to my friend Cindy on her pregnancy. I am sorry I missed your shower this past weekend, look for something fun in the mail to come! (I'd link you to to her fun blog but I don't know how to do it with just her name as the link...any help there?)

Much love.

Yay: Sunny days.
Dang: Bills.
