Sunday night always comes abruptly, doesn't it? I can't stand Sunday nights. I always begin to mourn the loss of the weekend at about 5pm. That's when the evening starts slipping away, and the sad reality of the work week becomes more and more evident.
Anyway, here we are on Sunday night. I do have a bit of an extra spring in my step because I only have 23 work days until SUMMERTIME! If you work in the corporate world, I am so sorry. I have NO idea how people work day-in and day-out without extended periods of rest. I get so tired. The thought of this particular summer is especially exciting. The first half of 2010 has been a ride, to say the least.
Brian and I have done some true relaxing today. We watched Dan in Real Life this afternoon. I just love that movie. It's good, clean familial fun. And, I even stayed awake for the whole thing. In fact, I felt like I was watching the end for the first time because I usually fall asleep about midway through. I have the weirdest problem with movies - I always fall asleep. Even if I absolutely love the movie, I still manage to doze off. This annoys the stink out of Brian, who is an avid movie watcher. Sometimes, I even stand up to finish it, if I'm really interested.
This was the best weekend. Yesterday, Brian and I made the short trip to Dallas for the wedding of an old college friend of mine. Before the wedding, we met up with my dear friend, Whitney. You know how you go along, living your life, and you forget how much you adore your old friends? Well, I keep up with Whitney very well, but I had forgotten how much I just love being in her presence. Brian and I met her, her wonderful husband, her darling baby, and her incredible parents at Grand Lux Cafe at the Galleria. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
Whitney was just glowing as she has so masterfully and gracefully embraced the role of motherhood. It suits her like you wouldn't believe. I really can't say enough about this sweet family. Now, I'm busy scheming a summer trip to visit them on their turf.
The wedding was beautiful. I love weddings, don't you? We've only attended a handful of weddings since our own, and I'm always struck by those words that we uttered - "for better or worse, in sickness and health". My word, we had NO idea what was coming to us only 2 months after that moment of truth.
After the wedding, we met up with another crew for dinner. It sounds like we ate all day, doesn't it? We dined at the famous Esparza's in Grapevine. If you live anywhere near Grapevine, I'd highly recommend this happening spot! It's a fun place, and their food is great.
After dinner, we walked the historic downtown Grapevine area. This is one of our favorite things to do. It's just so quaint and enjoyable on that main street. But, I must say, as the weather warms up, those sidewalks become more and more crowded.
We headed home after a while, and quickly crashed after we arrived.
I'm loving this warm weather! I'm a little unusual, but I can't wait for the summer scorchers!
Well, friends, I need to wrap this up. Monday morning is quickly approaching, and I've still got a few weekend tasks to finish before nightfall.
Have a wonderfully blessed week!
