Weekend Update

I hate when weekends fly by so fast. This weekend had too much fun stuff packed in and went by too fast. Boo hoo.
1. & 2. Husband & I went to the Houston Rodeo. And of course we had to take a picture before we left. He is so good about letting me take pictures. He knows just how much I love it. We're kind of cute. By the way, if you like my necklace, I got it from my aunt. She makes amazing necklaces. If you're interested, I can see if she's still selling them! My cousin (her daughter) customized this one for me.
3. The Band Perry was awesome in concert! Before the concert started, we really enjoyed watching the rodeo. My favorite event is definitely the mutton-bustin'. I die laughing every time. One sweet little girl only lasted like one second before she fell off. The camera immediately zoomed in on her and she was crying, but waving, all sweet like. Bless her heart. After the concert, we waited for our shuttle bus to take us back to our car. While waiting, some drunk guys were singing, "Circle of Life" from The Lion King and boxing each other. Very entertaining, I must say. Ross and I used to live in Huntsville (about 45 mins from Houston) and while I miss the Houston area, I do not miss the humidity! Austin doesn't have it nearly as bad as Houston does. That's for sure.
4. My blog bestie/twinkie/sister and I had an awesome time at The Tasting Room in Houston! We both totally wore mint colored shirts without even planning it. We are definitely going to be seeing more of each other! Too bad we don't live in the same town. But at least we're both in Tejas!
5. Ashley & I are both AXO Alums so of course we had to throw in an honorary photo! Wanna go... Gotta go... A-Chi-O! (Yep, I just went there...)
6. And because Ashley is the sweetest ever, she got me an (early) birthday gift. Isn't this keychain PRESH!? Love. One, it's monogrammed - who doesn't love monograms?! And two, it was just so thoughtful! If you're not already following Ashley, you are silly and need to go follow her STAT!

Needless to say, my weekend was spectacular! And I hope yours was too!

  1. You and your friend...both wearing mint, and both sporting nicely painted nails! My nails are not my best attribute - I need to paint them more often and keep them up a bit better. I painted them last night but they don't look too hot, ha.

  14. Your husband gets bonus points for being patient with picture taking! While my husband doesn't mind it, I know a lot of guys think it's a waste of time, or don't understand why the picture needs to be retaken, etc. :)

  16. Ah the Band Perry puts on a pretty good concert! I saw them back when they were playing on a free state fair stage - they've gotten so famous since then. I just found your blog through the Monday Morning Gossip link-up and just have to tell you - your wedding photos are absolutely gorgeous!

  17. My hubby's totally ok with pictures too... Which I'm so thankful for! He'll make sure to take three or so pictures of whatever I ask him to because he knows I need options. :-) Looks like you had a wonderful weekend!
