Greatest Surprise Ever!!! (part two)

Sunday morning, we went to the outlet mall to get some Bare Escentuals!! We had lunch at Craigo’s Pizza, then went to Cavenders to buy Cowboy Hats for Jill and Mom.


Then we went to meeting! My congregation finally got to meet my mom!  It was great!


After meeting, we drove up to Austin and went to OASIS for dinner.  Oasis is a restaurant overlooking Lake Travis.


It was crazy!!  We got there and there was NO parking.  The restaurant seats 2,500 people and we were there on a holiday weekend…We were nuts!   Once seated, we ordered.  YUMMY food!!


After we ate, we walked outside the restaurant and there was a guy taking pictures of people on the Longhorn.  We  decided to all jump in for the picture.

Seth got to sit on the Longhorn…It was fun and yet scary at the same time.

Monday we went to the Guadalupe river with Seth’s family.


My mom finally got to meet Aunt Pat, Cousin Bill, Jen, Ava, Bella and Wyatt!


Jilly is helping Wyatt over to “mermaid island”


We had a great time relaxing!!


Tuesday, Seth and I took mom and Jilly to the airport.

Greatest weekend ever!!!

Greatest Surprise Ever!!! (part one)

Thursday night, Seth and I drove up to Austin Airport to pick up my mom. She was coming to stay for the long weekend.  We were leaving the airport and a stranger came up to me from behind….it was Jilly!!!  I say stranger because she was dressed incognito (big sunglasses, sundress with vest, boots, tons of silver/turquoise  jewelry and a hat).


We drove out to Lockhart to go to dinner at Black’s Barbecue.  Good food!!


Friday morning I had to go to work, but everyone was up early that morning… They picked me up for lunch and we went to Palmer’s.  Yummy food and beautiful atmosphere!!


Friday night we went to Landa Station for Karaoke!  It was so much fun! We started off the night by singing the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song!!!  Too much fun!!!  I sang More Than Words by Extreme, Seth sang Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd and Jill sang Against All Odds(take a look at me now) by Phil Collins.  We had a great time!


Saturday we went thrift shopping, found tons of good stuff!! Jill bought 3 hats (sailor, straw, train conductor’s hat).  I won a piece of art at an auction at Goodwill.  Mom  bought a book.

We went to  Allen’s Boot Shop on South Congress!!  It was so much fun trying on tons of different pairs.


It was so much fun, we decided to all get a pair!!


Mom’s have stars, Jill’s have flower and mine are motorcycle boots!!!
