Most Romantic Date Night Ever

Jones family happenings for the weekend of November 8-9:

-On Friday night, Curtis and I had an incredibly romantic date night. Are you jealous? We went to a seminar for young married couples at our church on planning your will and incapacity documents. Like I said - incredibly romantic. The church provided child care and dinner for us, so that was nice. The seminar was super helpful even though it was a little depressing to have to think about such things.

-On Saturday afternoon I went with my mom, our co-worker Sabrina and her two daughters to the Junior League Christmas Market in The Woodlands. We had so much fun. Jackson got a new nap mat for MDO, compliments of Bibby. He never actually sleeps during his MDO naptime, but maybe this will do the trick. I'm sure his teachers would be thrilled.

-On Saturday night we got to have dinner at Mika and Nicole Self's house. They have a son and a daughter exactly three years apart, so we got to take a peek at what's in our future! We also had hummus for the first time, which makes me feel very cultured. Nicole, we enjoyed being with y'all so much!

-Curtis was our substitute teacher in Sunday school. He did a great job and was very attractive. The worship service was AMAZING. We had our full choir and orchestra, plus Travis singing! I seriously would have paid to come to that. Afterward we were invited by the missions department to have lunch with 100+ missionaries who are going to be appointed this week. It was so much fun getting to meet them. Angela, it made us miss you a ton!

Well, I have to leave for bunco in about 30 minutes, so I guess I should get off the computer. Lots of laughs are in store, I'm sure. I hope everyone files their nails before they come.

Oh, one more thing. I have an OB appointment tomorrow and I will have my glucose test. (Everyone has it at this stage to make sure they don't have gestational diabetes.) Please pray that I pass it without any problem so I don't have to do the three hour test. Thanks, y'all!

Just be thankful your glucose test isn't the day after your birthday on which you ate cookie cake for breakfast, lunch, and supper.

Oh yes. I got to do the awesome three hour thanks to the Great American Cookie Factory.

And it was totally worth it.

Oh they do two separate tests now? I had to do the three hour test all four times. Bummer. And the orange drink was yuk. I never had the g. diab. though. Praying you have a wonderful appt. tomorrow.

It cracked me up about the nail comment for bunco. I have only played once and would have inadvertantly gone with a pokey nail. Now, when I go again, I'll remember to file my nails really good, so as not to puncture anyone!

Girl...I LOVE LOVE LOVE hummus! I am blank on the exact name but I love the spicy one. Hows that for lame? Anyway....welcome to hummus world.

Have fun at bunco. Hope you win!

Heather said...

Sounds like an awesome date night!

Hate hate hate the glucose test!! I failed my first one with my first child ... ate things I shouldn't have. So for the next 2 I just had eggs for bfast and I passed both the first time. The 3 hour is the worst! Good luck ... just watch what you eat tomorrow!

Spicy Magnolia said...

Nope, those wills aren't fun. We just finished ours and making those big ol' grown up decisions wasn't easy or fun, but I'll tell you what: it feels SO good to have it all done! Truly, what a relief and now it can just be set aside.

I hope you had a great time at Bunco...I have yet to try! Is it fun? And hope the test goes well tomorrow, too. G'night!

Patty said...

You are so funny!
I smiled when you were talking about your hubby teaching your Sunday school class.

How fun to go to the Christmas Market! I decorated my home for Christmas over the weekend. This time of year is so much fun.

Have a great Bunco night. What is the theme? I loved Kelly's p.j. Bunco night. :)

Have fun!
Patty

p.s. praying you don't have to take the 3 hour test!!

The Barfuss Family said...

Sounds like a fun filled weekend! I will definitely be praying for you tomorrow!!

Kelly said...

Have fun at bunco (wish you were in my bunco group) and good luck on the test! I actually enjoyed the drink. ha! I'm sure you'll pass. Hope you are feeling good!

How sweet. Jimmy and I need to make those decisions and preparations as well. I hate evening thinking about it, b/c once this mind starts it has a hard time stopping.

Yea for the nap mat! I can't wait to see it. Funny...I was going to send you one for Jackson's birthday b/c I remembered you wanting a new one during meet-the-teacher.

Oh, and welcome to the world of hummus. I am a hummus-lover...Jimmy not so much. Do let me know if you need any good recommendations as far as brands and flavor...

I will def pray about the test!! I am sure eating hummus and foods like that will help keep it at bay. Sabra brand hummus is AWESOME with Stacy's Pita chips
Romance at its best is a nite filled with thoughts about losing your partner(j/k)-funny thing is I just was talking to hubby about that before I checked your blog.
can't wait till the little girl comes it will be a whole new world for you Jones'/Moore's/Fitzgerald's

Kristen said...

Ugh - the thought of downing that bottle of orange Triaminic-like liquid makes me want to gag. Praying you pass with flying colors! Don't eat anything before - everyone I know who has ended up failing. :)

lavonda said...

I had to do that 3 hour test with each pregnancy, after failing the first one by mere points both times!
SO PRAYING you don't have to do that. (especially if you hate needles like I do!!)

Michelle said...

Not only will I pray that you pass the test so you don't have to take the 3 hour one, I will also pray that you pass so that you don't have to go on the very restrictive and unpleasant diet.

Ang said...

1. I had to do a bunch of those morbid documents for the IMB before I came. All. By. Myself...At least Lootie Moon will get her money back :).

2. You better believe I have been thinking about the Jones family this week knowing that the service is at HFBC and wondering whether or not y'all were participating in any of the activities.

I love you!

Lauren said...

I have two things to say:
1. That orange sugar drink they make you drink for your glucose test . . . I just hope it doesn't bring back your morning sickness! Yuck!
2. YOU ONLY JUST NOW HAD HUMMUS? HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING UNDER A ROCK?! It's so good! Okay, I have an assignment for you. There is a restaurant called Cafe Lili on Westheimer near Chimney Rock. They have the best hummus on the planet. If you go, you also have to get an order of stuffed grape leaves. Most of their stuff is fantastic, including the baklava. Just don't go for lunch after church, because they're closed on Sundays. Sarah Welch and I used to eat there all the time.

Bunko was fun last night. I am so thankful for such a fun group of friends. Yes, I filed my nails but since I have not rolled a bunko in a long time, there was no need to.

Marc and Charity said...

Hope your test goes well. They don't test for that here in the UK, nor do they weigh you! It's so different here.

Kendra said...

Hummus Rocks! So did those fajitas on sunday...except that I had KICKIN breath the rest of the day! :) Your church were tremendously loving/gracious hosts ...and here I thought Travis was a regular installment at HFBC... What a treat! It was an amazing time of worship in the Lord's presence. It was wonderful to meet you and chat with you in the fajita line on sunday. Happy glucose testing - will be praying.

What a fun weekend it sounds like you had! Nothing gets better than Christmas shopping at fun marketplaces:) And though I've never played Bunco, I'd really love to learn! People say that it is so much fun:)

My husband and I just completed our will- It was something that we've been putting off since our twins were born (19 months ago!), but it is something that is so necessary. As a Pastor, my husband has seen too clearly what happens when people die and don't have a written will- Pure family chaos and fighting! So, after much prayer, many tears, and much discussion, we have finally nailed down our guardians and will. Praise the Lord! Hope you and Curtis will be able to do that soon!

And good luck on your glucose test! I had to do the 3 hour one, but ended up being fine:) Hope you won't even have to do that!

Little Momma, that sure did sound like a romantic date-yes, I'm very jealous:) Your weekend sounded like you had a packed, but blessed weekend:)...Whoa! That is a fantastic worship service!...I'm praying that your glucose test is passed! No gestational diabetes for you!!!:) Ew, three hour tests, who wants that?:)

Love in CHRIST,

I got to know the self's son at day camp... absolutely the cutest little boy and so full of energy. His little smile and that glean in his eyes are too cute!! Seriously, he could do no wrong in ms. becky's eyes. :)

Cheri-Beri said...

When I was pregnant with my daugther, I had to make cupcakes one night for my son. And sister let me tell you, I indulged on the batter, frosting AND a few cupcakes. I forgot my glucose test was the next morning. Gulp. Guess who got to come back for the full blown test? Not fun. So don't be an idiot like yours truly ;-)

Allison said...

You're first time eating Hummus?? I am SHOCKED! Where have you been all of these years. Mediterannean food is one of the things I miss most about H-town. Now that you've tasted it, I need you to go eating for me!
