The Weekend

Happy Monday friends!  I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  I will be heading back to Houston tomorrow, which I'm excited for.  Although as I've already mentioned I will be missing my two fur babies lots.  So today I plan to soak up as much lovin from them as possible! :)

Ok! now on to the highlights from my weekend!

-Friday, went to lunch with my bestie and her hubby at a restaurant that is considered an El Paso tradition. It's called Chicos Tacos.  I used to hate it, but it's one of those places that grows on you.

-Took one last picture with my long hair and Ashley's sunglasses.  Um...I'm OBSESSED with these. I need them in my life.  They're Coach sunglasses but I will def be on the look out for a similar pair to take with me to Europe.  I adore them.

-After 8 months ( yes 8!)  I finally went and got a much needed cut and color. Ashley and I went together and had a little salon day! 

-Got 5 1/2 inches cut off!! (Had to take another picture with Ashley's sunglasses.  I'm telling you I love them. She's lucky I didn't steal them from her before I left! lol :)  Just kidding Ash! Kinda.

-Before heading to the salon Ashley and I stopped at this super cute little cafe called Becks.  We grabbed a smores flavored coffee.  It was absolutely delightful complete with a toasted marshmallow and graham cracker crumbles.  This was one of the set ups on one of their tables.  So cute.

-Went to lunch at a super yummy Mexican food restaurant.  I'm so glad to have gotten to spend a little more time with Ashley.  She's one of my favorites! :)

-Saturday night a family friend was competing in the Miss El Paso Teen Texas pageant so my mom and I went to cheer her on.  It was her first time competing in a pageant and she made it all the way to the TOP 5!!! We were all so proud of her, especially because she actually fell on stage during the evening gown part of the competition and still made the top 5.  She gave the best interview answer and ended up getting 4th place.  She did fantastic though and look gorgeous!

-Before the pageant we went to a fun little place for drinks, appetizers, and sushi.

- Sunday was spent relaxing and just enjoying being at home. My mom made crab cakes for dinner and we ate as a family.

-Finally enjoyed some good nights sleep this weekend.  It really cooled down in West Texas this weekend and so that means the house was the perfect temperature for sleeping! :)

- Got some good practice in with my Canon DSLR.  I'm taking the camera to our family reunion in Dallas next week so that will help.  But I'm finally getting the hang of the camera and working in Manuel mode!  Meaning you will be seeing some ROCKIN picture of Europe come August! :)

- Brady was an absolute delight and an absolute terror this weekend .  He is such a little boy and is into everything.  But as you can see from the picture below he's loving every minute of it.  He's getting so big!  I just know he's gonna look like a grownup when I see him in August.

Overall great weekend!  My hair feels SO MUCH better of the much needed cut.  Now it's all set and ready for Europe in 18 days! It seriously feels like just yesterday I was just telling y'all that I had decided to go.  And now it's almost here!! :)

Enjoy your Monday friends!
