Its been a pretty freakin awesome week if I do say so myself.
First, Brittany got a job offer to be the marketing coordinator for a law firm in Austin. Which means...SHE'S MOVING BACK TO TOWN! As in, next week she's moving back. Glory glory hallelujah! When I moved here three years ago and made great friends with her, it was a cruel twist of fate that she immediately relocated to DFW. I mean, who does that?! Anyways, needless to say I am jazzed that she's moving back to town and that this law firm knows what a catch she is. Woohoo!
Then on Monday, after working a particularly gruelling 48 (as in 48 hour shift), my honey surprised me by recommending we re-create our second date. This second date mind you has gone down in dating history as possibly the best still-dating-not-officially-together date ever. In true second-date fashion, we had lunch at Maudie's on South Lamar. Though I didn't necesarily intend to, I ended up having the EXACT same meal. It was on that second date that I fell in love with Maudie's shrimp stuffed avocado in chipotle sauce so its no wonder I ordered that again. And when the drink menu came I thought what the heck, the prickly pear margarita was good three years ago, I bet its still good. I was so right. I had to giggle at us a little. Here's Ross chowing down in crunchy tacos and a drinking a cold beer, a very simple down-home meal, and me enjoying my gourmet Mexican avocado thing while sipping the fruitiest margarita in the place. What a pair are we! Anyways, then we went to a sno-cone place on the edge of Zilker Park. On that famous second date we ate our sno-cones while wandering around Zilker but this time we changed it up a little. I still hadn't been to Barton Springs so we adventured across the park and spent an hour or so at Barton Springs. What a great location! I can see why Austinites love it and I'm proud to join the fan club. We're definitely thinking we'll need to make another adventure there once school is back in session and it can practically be just us.
When we got back from our date, this is what we found in our backyard:
Pretty stinkin' cute way to end an awesome date huh?
I can't tell you how great that date was. After not seeing Ross for the whole weekend, I was in desperate need of some QT. And with the crazy work schedule he ended up this week, I'm glad we took the time to have that QT on Monday. It's what is getting me through many husbandless days this week.
And how funny is this, yesterday he asked if I had blogged about it yet. Obviously you know I had not. But as the family historian/author/blogger, I promised I would make a point to do so tonight while he's working.
It isn't like blogging about such an awesome date was really twisting my arm or anything. In fact, I'm quite happy to tell the world.
