After an entire month of going and going nonstop, it was kind of nice to have a weekend where we didn’t have that many plans at all. One of my favorite parts about spring in Texas is all of the beautiful wildflowers that are in full bloom, and with us being so busy in March it didn’t leave any time to go out and explore the area. So when this weekend rolled around, finding a big patch of bluebonnets to take some family photos in was our number one priority! So let’s see how it all panned out with a little weekending with the always amazing Biana!
While we didn’t have any big plans for Friday night, my Friday afternoon was pretty awesome because we got a break from work and went to the Astros exhibition game against the Chicago Cubs. While the Astros didn’t take home the win, it was still pretty awesome to get some time off from work and also to see how much Minute Maid Park has changed. Not only is there a Torchy’s Tacos in the stadium, but also a Shake Shack and a Bahama Bucks! Needless to say, I will probably eating very well during this baseball season!
Chris picked me up from the game and we went to the Galleria for a quick trip so that I could exchange a purse that I had gotten for my birthday. I really wanted a small bag that would be perfect to take into the Aggie football games next year, and I think that I found it at Tory Burch! It will literally only hold my cell phone, car key, credit card and license and that’s about it. I guess that’s all I need for a football game!
That night, my parents dropped their pups off for the weekend while they went out of town for a wedding. They’ve grown up so much since we last had them at Christmas, and while Dart still doesn’t have the warm and fuzzies about them, we still had a nice, relaxing night at home.
We were up bright and early Saturday morning so we could try to find some bluebonnets. I thought that there would be some in College Station so we headed that way. Unfortunately we didn’t see any big patches of them, and I thought that we’d missed them this year. We made a quick stop by my friend Kayla’s house so she could finally meet my parent’s new pups. They were very happy to get out of the car and meet her!
After that we decided to take a back way up to Brenham through the small town of Independence that’s supposed to have a ton of bluebonnets. We had just passed through the town of Independence when we saw a huge patch of bluebonnets that actually weren’t on somebody’s property. So we pulled over and started taking pictures.
The doxies weren’t too interested in the bluebonnets other than trying to eat them, but we did manage to get some pictures of them in the bluebonnets and of course some family of three pictures of Chris, Dart, and I! Dart was in full form and totally hamming it up for the camera, and I loved it because we got quite a few adorable pictures of him!
After we were done taking pictures we drove home and spent the rest of the day just relaxing at home. We had a lot of stuff on our DVR that we got caught up on, and then went and grabbed pho for dinner a little later on in the evening. It was the perfect way to end our Saturday!
While Saturday had some plans, Sunday literally had zero plans at all, especially considering that we were supposed to have some big storms blow through. I slept in a little bit and then woke up and spent the morning lounging on the couch until my parents came to pick up their pups. Around the same time that they left, Chris also had to head out to the airport for a week of training near DC. While I’m definitely going to miss him, I would definitely be lying if I said that I’m not looking forward to a week alone of getting caught up on my shows and relaxing with my three legged pup.
The rest of my Sunday was filled with normal Sunday activities like grocery shopping, laundry, picking up around the house, and getting some blogging done. Not terribly exciting, but very relaxing and just what I needed after a month of go, go, go! It really was the perfect weekend!
