threesixfive, days 84 thru 90
****blogger is not letting me space out my post and i dont know why!!! ive tried to fix it but i only make it worse. please excuse them and bear with me this week.**** this week wrapped up allens month long sabbatical. its been great having him around so much. the kids and i will definitely miss him when he heads back to work tomorrow!! we spent sunday thru wednesday in san antonio, staying in a hotel on the riverwalk. one of our 'couple friends' came down sunday evening and had dinner with us, then the next morning the guys played golf while emilie and i went shopping...and ate, and ate, and ate! the riverwalk is such a fun and beautiful place. its right in the heart of downtown san antonio, and its lined on both sides with fantastic restaraunts, and boutiques. tuesday allen and i slept in and after lunch went and walked thu the alamo, something i hadnt done since i was probably in middle school. i appreciated it much more this time! we also went to the rivercenter mall, did a little shopping, and squeezed in a movie. it was so good to get away without the kids, and just be with each other. we hadnt done that in a long time. the rest of the week played out as usual, with a few extras thrown in. i'll let the pictures show you that stuff, though.... sunday, day 84 dinner at the magic time machine. so. much. fun. this is emilie and i with our waitress, poison ivy. she was adorable! monday, day 85 emilie and i walked (much farther than we anticipated) to the guenther house for breakfast. its a historic home thats been turned into a museum and bakery. fabulous coffee, and i had the most delicious oatmeal pancakes. afterward i was thankful for all the walking we'd be doing! tuesday, day 86 i saw this place on diners, drive-ins, and dives (food network) about 3 weeks ago. i told allen we had to eat there while we were in S.A. it did not dissapoint! sandwiched between a car wash and a laundromat, their entire menu is organic and locally grown. we had spinach mushroom quesedillas (my favorite that day!); allen had the lamb burger; and i tried one of their fish tacos which was also fantastic. wednesday, day 87 the alamo!! very cool. thursday, day 88 i went today and got a feather hair extension. i've seen a few people with them and think they're so cool looking. one of the girls in the youth group, whos also our babysitter, has one and suggested that i go to the place she went. so thursday afternoon i drove down to south austin and got one! i love it!!! you can wash it, curl it, brush it; anything you'd do to normal hair. its supposed to last 2 to 3 months. i kept it pretty neutral this time. if i do it again, i think i'll add a little color. friday, day 89 allen took molly to the daddy/daughter dance. this was their second year to go, and they had a great time once again. saturday, day 90 our first pool day of the year! it got up to the low 90's today, but that water was still cold!! i'm so glad my kids are old enough that i dont have to get in with them!!!! have a blessed week!!
