The weekend started off on Friday with the delivery of our first Maxwell couch (so excited). Afterward, I went to West Elm to get new bedding for one of the guest bedrooms (see above). Following cameย a glass of St. Germain and club soda at Benjy’s with two of my best friends, Paola and Patrick – i.e. I was one happy camper on Friday by 6pm. I went to the other Benjy’s in Rice Village for a friend’s birthday dinner, then went to bed reasonably early because I had a 10k in the morning. After running errands all morning, I realized I had locked myself out of the house and had to drive to the Medical Center, where Sasha was in class, to get a key (I’m losing my marbles). I had a slew of visitors come and see the house (thank you, Jess, for my lovely gifts!), then went to James’ 2nd birthday party, followed by a trip to Katy to meet one of Sasha’s best friends who lives with his sweet wife in Minneapolis. They recently had a baby girl, Ava, who was already sleeping when we arrived. Sunday began with church at Bayou City Fellowship, then HEB, lunch, and my least favorite task of the weekend – taking pictures of Sasha’s old furniture that I did not want to keep. I listed 15 items on Craigslist – what a crazy site. Hopefully most will be gone soon! My dad and sister and Sasha’s dad and stepmom came over to see the house, and we gave the 3D TV a spin – it’s incredible. Golf has never been so exciting! We finished the weekend with a dinner at Barnaby’s with two friends – capping Sunday off with falafel cannot be beat. Hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!
