Weekend in Review

Thursday

-went to Corpus to see my hubby
-traded in a vehicle for another vehicle and paid off a vehicle. No car payments, finally!


Friday

-Coffee with Tiff at Barnes and Noble (even though I had a frozen strawberry/lemonade drink)
-Spent the entire day reconsidering where we are going to live in Corpus (We just aren't feeling 100% sure about buying a second home in this crazy market)
-Checked out a possible high school for Ashley
-Annie made us all laugh when she said, "Daddy, I'm want Chinese food for lunch. I'm hungry for an enchilada, rice and beans." That is so Annie.
-Used a half a tank of gas looking at possible housing options in case we don't go for the Flour Bluff home

Saturday

-The kids spent almost the entire day swimming at the hotel we were staying at with Skip
-I finally had my first visit to our new church Saturday night. The message was an update on all that is happening at all the different campuses and a look at all the lives changing by what God is doing there. It was perfect message for me to get an understanding of what Real Life Fellowship is all about.
-We had dinner with some great friends of ours and the pastor's family at a fun pizza place. Our kids had a wonderful time making new friends.


Sunday

-Woke up early and drove back to Victoria
-Picked up Triscuit
-Let Triscuit attack us for ten minutes with kisses. She really missed us a lot! I don't know who was happier-Triscuit or Skip's parents who babysat her for 3 and a half days. Thanks Otto and Linda for giving us puppy freedom!
-Skip just arrived home from a very long week and is sound asleep. I'm off to see what I can get him to cook me for dinner tonight.

Have a great week everyone!

Congrats on paying off your vehicle! It is so nice to have no car payments!!! The housing market is crazy and with the possibility of food prices going up I would definitely consider other options. Your new pastor and his family are extremely attractive! They look like the Beckham family!!! I hope you had a yummy dinner! That is awesome your hubby cooks!!!

I love the frozen strawberry/lemonade drink from Barnes and Noble! I don't live near a store now so I can only taste it in my memories. :)

Praying for the right house to just reveal itself, Susie. I know this time is taking its toll, and I pray God will continue to reaffirm His hand in it all.

Glad you had a good weekend!
