Proverbs 31 Woman

So this morning, I was reading and I found it ironic that 2 devotions I read in the same day were about the Proverbs 31 woman.  I was so encouraged and challenged in this that I just had to share.  Hopefully seeing this on our blog, will serve as a great reminder to me of what you have called us as women to be.  Thank you Jesus for not asking for perfectionism, but rather have covered us with grace to live according to your will!

Baby Moon

This past weekend, Courtney and I went down to the hill country and spent the day on Saturday in San Antonio on the river walk. It was our baby moon, or last chance trip before "baby m" gets here in May!

We had so much fun! We just walked around the river walk and looked at stuff, watched people (one of our favorite things to do), and then we went to Boudros for lunch. The weather was perfect and we were able to sit on the river! Which was a surprise for mid January. Apparently their guacamole is on the 1001 things to do before you die list...along with their prickly pear margarita, but we passed on that. :) The guacamole was actually really good! They put fresh squeezed orange juice in it, which was weird, but yummy.

After lunch, we were right next to Mr. Ice Cream, which Courtney and I had been to once before in college, so we saved a little room at lunch and went and got a scoop. After our ice cream, we walked the river a little more and then we headed out to get a couple's massage. It was incredible! Courtney got her "prenatal treatment" and I got a basic massage. It was a lot of fun and very relaxing. After that we went to BJ's and grabbed a snack before we headed back to our place in Hunt.

On Sunday, we did nothing! Which was incredible and much needed! We slept in and Courtney made these incredible cinnamon rolls that were delicious! It was a little overcast and misting that day so it felt appropriate to lay around on the couch and watch movies for a bit. Toy Story 3 happened to be on, so we decided to watch that. After a few hours though, we started getting a little restless, so we decided to clean up and go to "The Store" for lunch. We didn't really think it through but it was after 2:00 when we got there and the grill apparently closes at 2:00 so all they had was BBQ and pizza. So we decided on pizza. It was actually pretty good! I was sad we didn't get our regular burger and "seasoned" fries though.

After lunch we went back to the ranch and went for a walk since the mist had finally stopped. It is so beautiful out there and peaceful! Our dogs are always so happy to have the space and no leash too.

That evening we decided to come home so that we would have more time on Monday to relax at home and not feel the stress of traveling right before we have to go back to work. Our ritual has become a stop in Llano, TX at Coopers barbecue! It is always so delicious! We got plenty this time so that we could bring some home. Now I get Coopers all week for lunch!

On Monday, we had another lazy day. We actually went to see a matinee movie! We went to see Mission Impossible (whatever number it is now). It was actually pretty good. After that we went to get paint for Baby M's nursery! Then we topped the evening off with Chuy's for dinner! Our favorite!

We had a great weekend relaxing and enjoying our "last vacation" before Baby M gets here. But we can't wait for her to get here! It is so crazy that she will be here in 16 weeks!

We got a few videos and pics from the weekend and I put together this video. Hope you all enjoy!
