Weekend Update


Now that it's over I can FINALLY talk about it. Our brother in law had been planning a surprise party for Conrad's sister since around Thanksgiving. She turned 30 on Wednesday - so he planned the party for 7PM on Friday. The only catch was the party was in Dallas. So we left about noon on Friday and had a great time. I think she was very surprised and as always, it was nice to be "home" ... on Saturday we headed to my old stomping grounds, Richardson, to see my neighbor and my sister.

We had a good time. My FAV restaurant in Dallas is Luna de Noche- so we went there for lunch and then talked and hung out. Blanca loves and grew up with my neighbor's dog- so I know she had a good time and was happy to see him. Then I popped in and saw my sis and her husband. I still had Christmas gifts for them.

Then today I went grocery shopping for the week - I made Super Bowl Queso today for just the heck of it and then we had a SUPER YUM dinner. My friend sells these briskets every year this time - for her daughters softball league. I bought one and it was SO GOOD - we will be getting one every year. We had that, and some mac n cheese- the good kind, the casserole you make at home, not the box ... and we had corn on the cob. It was very nice.

Good to be home, glad our sister had a good birthday and glad to see my friend and my sis ... we had a nice weekend. Back to the grind tomorrow- but I feel pretty relaxed and refreshed. Maybe family and friends do that for you.
