Can we just talk about the fact that all of the time changes really seem to mess with you more the older that you get? I swear I was so tired on Sunday and I’m blaming it all on the time change and not on the incredibly busy weekend that I had. So let’s do a little weekend recap with the always amazing Biana!
March in Houston has been filled with some rainy weather, and Friday was no different than the several weeks before. So rather than go out, Chris and I decided that we needed another quiet night at home. We cooked dinner together, well pretty much Chris cooked dinner and I kind of helped, and we spent the rest of the night just relaxing and getting caught up on our DVR shows, our usual Friday night ritual when we’re at home it seems.
Rain was in the forecast for the full day on Saturday which totally threw a wrench in the plans that Kathleen and I had for taking birthday pictures again. We had plans to go to Dry Bar for some total “treat yo self” plans, but we ended up canceling those plans and just decided to get our pictures done as early as possible in the morning as possible.
So we bought our balloons early in the morning and then headed to our first mural, The Love Wall, to take some pictures. As I was literally setting up the tripod for pictures my “0” that Kathleen was holding on literally flew away. When we looked at the string it looked like Party City hadn’t tied the ribbon on tight enough so with the wind it literally got disconnected from the ribbon. Talk about freak accident right!
Kathleen and I weren’t going to let that stop us from having a good day though, so we still took some pictures at the Love Wall and then drove over to take pictures at a couple of other murals. The next location that we went to was actually right around the corner from my favorite Houston brewery, Saint Arnold! I’ll definitely be wanting to make more visits there sometime soon!
Before we went to our last mural of the day, Kathleen stopped back by another Party City so that I could get another “0” to take some balloon pictures. When I told them what happened they almost didn’t give me another one because they said that they “weren’t responsible once the balloons left the store”. I call total bull on that statement because they should at least be responsible for how well they tie their balloons together. But that obviously doesn’t matter because they gave me my “0” so that I could get some 3-0 pictures!
Our last mural stop of the day was to The Biscuit Paint Wall which was our first stop that we went to last year when we took our birthday pictures. It was so much fun to recreate those pictures and to be all bloggery with a fellow blogger!
After pictures we were both starving so we headed to Rice Village for some brunch and a little shopping. We stopped by Little Liberty which is a smaller version of Liberty Kitchen that we visited last year, and while the food was good, the service was so terrible! They didn’t have enough menus for everybody and the servers didn’t seem to know their own menu. It makes me wonder if they’re a new restaurant and need some time to get set up.
After brunch we headed to Kendra Scott so that Kathleen and I could use our 50% off discounts. Despite a torrential downpour, we made it into the store and each got some great pieces that we’d been eyeing for a while. To say that we had an eventful and fun day would be an understatement!
When I got home from taking pictures with Kathleen Chris and I headed to our friends house for dinner. It had literally been since Christmas since we’d seen Sarah, Clayton, and their daughter Ellie, so it was literally so nice to catch up! Also I can’t believe how big Ellie has gotten in such a short amount of time! She’s so cute and such a good baby too!
We had some delicious fajitas for dinner prepared by Sarah and Clayton and spent the rest of the night catching up and playing a fun new board game, Dixit. The whole premise of the game is that you’re trying to get people to not guess the card that you’re playing based on the clue that you give. It sounds very confusing, but I promise that once you start playing it gets really easy and very addicting!
We were up early again on Sunday, not only because of daylight savings time, but because we were also getting our family photos taken first thing in the morning! A coworker’s wife started up a family photography business and after seeing some of the newborn pictures that she took for another coworker, I knew that I wanted her to take some family pictures of us. We met up at a park near our house, and spent the next hour taking pictures. Dart did a really good job, and I think that he was partially showing off because of the new people that were around.
Lindsey already posted a few of the pictures on Facebook, and they’re so incredibly beautiful! There’s only two that she posted right now, but if this is any indication of how the rest of them are going to look, I know that they’re going to be just what we wanted! If you’re in the Houston area, definitely check out Lindsey’s Facebook Page when you need a family photographer! She was wonderful to work with and she took some amazing photos as well!
The rest of the day was spent relaxing at my parents house and trying to stay awake after I finished up our taxes for the year! I swear I was definitely in need of a nap, but didn’t want to take one. And even though the temperatures dropped on Sunday, Chris and I didn’t do our usual pho dinner, but opted for some pizza instead. Don’t worry though, we definitely watched The Walking Dead!
After a very busy weekend, you’d think that I’d have a not so busy week, but that’s definitely not going to happen. I have a play on Tuesday with my mom and sister and the Rodeo again on Wednesday with Chris. Then on Friday I’m jetting off with my friend Kayla to Las Vegas to celebrate our 30th birthdays! It’s going to be busy, but a very fun week to be sure!
