Jeff and I have been married for 4 months! Time has gone by so quickly - I cannot believe it has been 1/4 of a year. Marriage is wonderful!

Girls Weekend

I spent last weekend with some of my favorite girls!!

Sarah came over on Thursday night, and I introduced her to WineStyles, my favorite little wine bar. She loved it so much, that she bought 8 bottles : ) Then we headed home to make baskets for Brandy's Mom's Breast Cancer Benefit.

We both took off on Friday, and headed to Austin to see Lenti. We swam, drank wine, and ordered pizza rolls and a chocolate chip pizza (I know, who knew?) for dinner - just like the college days ; )

Brandy came to spend Saturday with us, where we enjoyed the smallest pool floats EVER (I am so sorry that we didnt' get pictures) turkey burgers, and Lenti's Sangria - yum! It is so easy -

Large Bottle of Red Table Wine
2 Liters of Diet Sunkist Soda
Lemons & Limes, squeezed and then floated in the pitcher

We then headed to Moonshine for dinner - where Sarah and I got the biggest plates of Mac & Cheese I have ever seen! If you are ever in Austin, you have to try this place, it's amazing!

Thank you girls for a wonderful weekend; I needed it!

Poem for Nana

My Pappa shared this poem with me this morning, and reminds me so much of my Nana's passing. I thought I would share.

God Only Takes the Best

God saw she was getting tired
And a cure was not meant to be

So He put His arms around her
And whispered "come with me"

With tearful eyes we watched her suffer
And watched her fade away

Although we loved her dearly
We could not make her stay.

A golden heart stopped beating
A warm loving heart to rest

God broke our hearts to prove to us
