Weekend festivities

Whew! I've had an amazing weekend! First, my sister came down on Thursday night and my wonderful hubby decided to make us salmon and whole-wheat spaghetti! What a sweetheart :)

Then on Friday my sister and I went to the most amazing concert ever-BRITNEY!! Okay, I might be a little biased...I love Britney! But, I will say, it was so entertaining and so much fun to be in the crowd-just like a little kid giddy at the circus, which I assume that's what they were going for. I love going to concerts but I usually go to the run-of-the-mill Texas country concert. I love Texas country; however, the experience was completely different. We were lucky enough to have really great seat about 3 rows back from the floor! The first part of her performance was actual circus performers-like a contortionist (not sure if that is spelled correctly), two men balancing a beam on their shoulders and then throwing a lady in the air while she was doing flips. It was very impressive. But then, she came on and her whole set was just unbelievable-great dancers, interesting sets, fun costumes, and they even had a large screen that would come down from the ceiling that they played videos on. It was really spectacular! At the end of the show they had a confetti shower...ahh, what more could I have asked for?!!?
Although, the only things that made me a little nervous was the music was sooo loud and the bass was really intense. I was just anxious that it would hurt my little Pason. But, I'm pretty sure it's okay. It's not like it is a daily occurence and it wasn't more than a couple of hours.

On Saturday, my sister and I ran errands for a little while and then worked on the house. I'm so glad she came down. She's very good at organization. I love to decorate but when it comes to organizing I'm not the greatest. So, now our house looks and functions much better..thanks Courtnie! :) That night we had over Derek and Jenny and had a nice BBQ with our new grill! It was a lot of fun-besides the fact we had to watch Tech play. My husband is from Tech and is a crazy fan and this only poses a problem because I'm from A&M and 100% Aggie! This doesn't make the greatest combination if anyone knows much about Texas college football. So football season around our house should be interesting hahah...but we really did have a great time!

On Sunday, my hubby and I woke up and decided to go take a hike at the Tyler state park. It was beautiful but my allergies were going nuts! We walked about 2.5 miles and I took lots of pictures with my camera. I love being outdoors and taking pictures so this was a welcomed trip for both of us! We will be making many more visits now that we know how much there is out there! Pictures to come!

Most exciting time of my life!

19 weeks has come so fast! I still don't feel like I look like a preggo but since I have to fit into a duponi silk wedding dress next weekend I guess that's a good thing! Although this is not how I imagined walking down the isle or starting my family, timing is only a small part of life. I'm with the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. We both have always wanted children and I think we both will make a great team to raise our kids. We were upset about the timing of things at first but we realize that we are nothing but blessed!

In other news, this weekend was so much fun! My sister threw me a bachelorette party in Dallas. It was beautiful! We spent the morning at the spa at the W, the fabulous hotel we stayed at. Then we went to shop at North Park and met up with the rest of the ladies and headed back to the hotel for a party! Next we headed over to Kimichi, a trendy Japenese restaurant right beside the hotel. After dinner we went to Ghost Bar on the top floor of the W. It was fun and we danced for awhile; however, I was easily tuckered and so we headed back to the suite and played games before we all fell asleep. It was perfect! I couldn't have asked for a better time!

This coming week has soooo much in store! I think it will possibly be the most exciting week of my life! On Tuesday we will find out the sex of the baby...I can't hardly wait! I'm seriously counting down the hours! I just hope that the baby is not going to be shy! Then on Wednesday, after work, we are heading back to good ole west Texas for the start of the wedding festivities. Thursday will be my final dress fitting and meet with the coordinator at the country club to finalize some plans. Then on Friday we have the rehearsal and dinner. And Saturday is the BIG day! I don't think reality has really set in yet. I'm not sure it really will until Saturday. So, in less than a week I'm going to married and half way through my pregnancy hahah...never thought that would be a sentence I would be saying. But, like I said before, I'm so excited and blessed!
