Long Weekend Behind Me and One Coming Up

Hello ladies and gents. I apologize for the lack of blogging. There are 2 reasons for this lack of blogging:
1. My co-worker Amber is gone to Florida this week so I am doing double duty at work and have been swamped.
2. My boss probably wonders why my fingers are constantly clicking away at my desk but he is not receiving emails from me. So I have to keep my personal blogging to a minimum during the 8-5.

Anywho, spent last weekend in Dallas with the family. I love them. It's that simple. My mom, dad, grandma, her 2 dogs, and myself headed to Heath, TX last Friday at 5:30. The trip was not bad and we got there pretty quickly after I took the keys from my dad during a gas stop and put my lead foot on the pedal.

First thing I did when I got there was gave my nieces (they were already there) a big hug and kiss and stole the baby from my aunt or whoever was holding her. I tend to do that anytime I want. If someone is holding her (especially my mom) I just take her. She loves her Aunt Heather and I know she wants me to do this! :)
Then I made my way to my bestest cousin Katie Lee to give her a hug, congratulate her on the engagement and then looked at her ring. Beautiful! Then I eventually stole it and wore it til she literally ripped if off my hand.
Saturday we swam in the pool all day and I of course got my once a year sunburn out of the way. My nose is starting to peel now. After some relaxing in the pool, the ladies of the family decided to go look at some reception sites in the greater Dallas area. Nothing is close in that town so every where we drive takes at least 30 min. But great news.... we found a great reception site and once Katie took a vote from all of us, she decided to book it! Now... only to find the ceremony site.
We had dinner at the house that night and just relaxed, played with the girls and talked. Katie, Kristin and I love to just sit and talk when we all get together. And it never fails, I always hear at least once from someone "So when are you gonna move down here?"
Sunday we headed to the delicious restuarant Gloria's for lunch before heading home. I hate leaving but the good part is that I am going back in 2 weeks with my mom so all the ladies can go to a bridal fair in Dallas. I want to be there as much as I can. After all, I AM the maid of honor. I love saying that!

So, no work tomorrow. Woo-hoo! Kickball playoffs round 2 tonight. Playing a team I really really wanna beat (Nattie, this is Chad P's team). Then out to celebrate our impending victory with pizza and beer. Tomorrow will be spent at Chevy's pool and what the rest of the weekend brings....well we will just have to wait and see!

This is hilarious.. my grandpa who just turned 79 years old in the middle of a water gun fight with all the men in the family. They were having so much fun and cracking all of us up!

  1. What a fun weekend! I'm jealous of your pool pics... our 6" baby pool in the backyard isn't quite doing it for me anymore.
