yay for days off!

mike had five glorious days off of work this past week and we made the most of it!! saturday we had a rare and wonderful date night...chuy's for dinner-i got the chuy's enchilada special with the cream tomatillo sauce (very important) and mike got his old faithful chicken salad. both were so yummy and i've been craving it ever since. then we went to a movie. like a real movie in a movie theater. and guess what we saw? a kid's movie! well not a cartoon but we saw monte carlo with selena gomez and it was so good! here we are before our date night...and we had lots of fun play time with daddy. this picture cracks me up-first because mike is wearing sadie's minnie ears and second, because she looks like she would rather be anywhere than posing for a pic!
sunday night we had some friends over and grilled burgers, then monday night we had the best dinner! i got crab cakes from heb but made a homemade remoulade sauce-divine. and paula deen's shells and cheese with bacon, roasted asparagus, and juicy filets wrapped in bacon. (didn't get the steaks in the picture but they were so good)
poor miss sadie has been battling an upset stomach for 10 days now...i will not go into details but it has been messy around here! her tests came back negative for bacteria or parasites so i guess it's some sort of virus, but it's still making me worried. today we loaded up on probiotics and children's pepto. hopefully it will help! in this pic she's showing me the answer to "how much do you love mama?" she does her arms out big and says "this" for "this much." sweetie pie!
and here she is today before going to hobby lobby and home depot...i thought she looked so cute! and she insists on carrying a real lemon around with her everywhere. ha!
i'm about to start a little project involving paint and a rooster and a clock. want to know what it is?

nope. you'll just have to wait and see.


  1. I hope Sadie will get over her little virus soon. She is such a cutie. Daddy looks silly/cute in her Minnie ears! Such a good daddy! Glad he had some time off and that you got to go on a date. I saw Monte Carlo with two of granddaughters who are 11 and 13...and we liked it a lot!

  2. we hope sadie feels better soon. what a nice date night. the picture of mike in the minnie ears is funny! and i laughed out loud at the part about sadie carrying a lemon with her everywhere--too hysterical!

  3. Love Miss S.'s curls! And I absolutely love it when hubs is home on vacay. It's always the best when the whole family is home together! And I can't remember when I went to a theater to see a non-cartoon movie! :)
