I just sat down to update the bloggy blog and I had to ask Curt what we did this weekend. He didn't answer, but it's coming back to me now.
See previous post. I had a deadline for a big work project on Friday and that was the central cause of my and Jackson's frustration with each other. PTL, it is d-o-n-e!
We met our friends Tony and Dana and their two-year-old grandson for dinner at Pappasito's. Tony and Dana were youth workers when Curt was on the youth staff at HFBC. They're a lot of fun and are very loving people. After a rough afternoon with Jackson, I was afraid that he would be awful at dinner. But he was great and he enjoyed getting to be around Matthew and his Mimsy and Pappaw. Um, has anyone ever tried the kids chicken tenders there? Holy cow, they are almost as good as the fajitas. The chicken is the same quality. Jackson will be getting those from now on. Yum!
Fresh highlights with Becky at Visible Changes.
Lunch date with the Altics.
Went to Dana's antique store in the Heights.
Curtis let me take a nap.
Made a much needed trip to HEB and then cooked chicken with sherry sauce.
Found out my parents' dog Sunny got really sick while they were out of town. I felt so bad for my mom since she was having to deal with it during her conference. Sunny's okay for now. Bless her sweet, old heart.
Sunday school was awesome. Got to visit with Stephen and Star who were leading worship in the chapel, where our Sunday school class has been assigned to sit during the sanctuary renovations. Got to visit with the Weir/Tate clan. Learned all about the plagues God inflicted on the Egyptians. Pastor Gregg included some sound effects for us, like flies buzzing and boils popping. I am not even lying about that. Met fellow blogger Jen the Newlywed, who is super cute and sweet. Picked up some pants I had altered at Nordstrom. Got James Coney Island to go. Went to a dual confirmation/graduation party for our ministry director's beautiful daughters. Jackson really wanted to get into their cake and open their presents. We didn't get to stay long. Picked out some paint colors for our bedrooms, bathrooms, and my office. Played in the baby pool with Jackson.
I spent an hour and a half baking a Texas sheet cake from scratch for the first time. It tasted like I had baked soil from my backyard and iced it with Beckham's poop. No lie. It might be better in the morning, but I'm not getting my hopes up. When my mom makes this cake it disappears within an hour. We have not touched this one since we carved out the initial two pieces. I know where I went wrong, but I don't want to admit it for fear of ridicule. I guess I will just say that due to the large volume of shoppers at HEB on Saturday, they were out of a certain necessary ingredient and I had to settle for the low fat version. (My mother just gasped and I will get a text from her any minute.)
Another Sunday High:
I am laying in my heavenly bed and I'm about to finish a really great book that I can't wait to tell you about. I didn't get my normal after church nap today, so I will sleep like a baby tonight. Can't wait. I hope your weekend was wonderful, even if you can't remember what you did. Have a great Monday, peeps.
