I'm a SUPER excited about this Friday, because at the end of the day, I'm off for a whole week! Kevin and I will be celebrating our 2nd anniversary in Mexico! I plan to lay on the beach or by the pool pretty much all week and read.
Since I haven't had a chance to blog much lately, I'll use this random post to catch you up a bit!
Lisa moved to San Antonio!!! If you don't know Lisa at Lisa Loves John blog, head over there now. Her recipes and DIY projects are the bomb! We're so excited to have her and her hubby here. We met up for dinner last week and met for the first time! Don't ya just love blogger friendships?!
A few weekends ago, we made a trip up to the Dallas area for Kevin's birthday. We spent some awesome time with his adopted family - man, I wish I was Puerto Rican! We also met up with some friends the first night (top left). We went to a Texas Rangers game (don't even talk about it - we're still grieving) and the Texas State Fair.
Our goal at the state fair is to eat as many random fried foods as we can.
This year we tried the featured ones - Pretzel Crusted Pollo Queso Balls, Cowboy Corn Crunch (corn, bacon, jalapeno cream cheese), Holy Moly Carrot Cake Roly (pictured below), fried Spaghetti and Meatballs and the trusty Fletcher's corn dog.
Last Saturday, I helped host a baby shower for a friend who wanted a Maine-themed shower. We weren't sure how to do it at first, but ended up coming up with some great ideas! She loved it!
On the menu: Lobster rolls, Blueberry Cream Mini Tarts, Whoopie Pies, Cheese/Crackers, Veggies/Dip, Pretzels, Jelly Beans.
I was nervous about the lobster rolls, but they turned out to be excellent!
Last Friday was Kevin's work gala. They raise 75% of their annual funds at this event. It takes place at the St. Anthony Hotel in downtown San Antonio. It was gorgeous! My parents were able to come so I enjoyed spending time with them. We had a blast!
Theme had to do with wearing something from a previous era - I didn't do it, but my parents did
Monday was our two-year anniversary! I can't believe that it's been two years - time has flown! But we've also been through a lot and God has really deepened our relationship in those two years. I am so grateful for the man that God sent me to do life with.
We celebrated on Sunday, since we had Bible study on Monday, with seeing the movie, War Room, in the theater (so good!) and dinner at J. Prime Steakhouse. AMAZING! I got the dry aged fillet and it was possibly the best steak I've ever had. They also gave us complimentary bananas foster for our anniversary!

Have a great weekend and week, friends! I hope to stay away from social media and just unplug for the next week so peace out!
