We had an absolutely fabulous weekend of celebrations in Austin during the first weekend of this month. But let’s roll back to Thursday (October 1st) first.
To pre-celebrate my birthday, I met John for lunch on Thursday at Ouisie’s Table. Nothing says “happy-birthday-to-me” quite like a plate of Ouisie’s chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and collard greens. Delicious.
We drove up to Austin early Friday morning (my birthday – October 2nd) and while John worked in his downtown office, George and I held down the fort in our room at the Westin at the Domain. We had a fun time together, including our Chick-fil-a picnic lunch in our room. As George says, “I like it.”
That night, the Hunters hosted us for pizza and Tiff’s treats. We had a nice time eating, catching up and watching the kids play together.
On Saturday, we celebrated the Twins’ first birthday. I can’t believe these nuggets are one!
Nelda and Zach outdid themselves with their party.
We had so much fun, especially George!
At some point on Saturday, I either picked up food poisoning or a stomach bug. Blerg. After I put George to bed that night, I started to feel ill. Within a few hours I was full-blown miserable. On Sunday, I was driving home and puking into a cup. Lovely, no? Fortunately, I felt much better when Monday rolled around and we are so glad that we were able to spend time with family and friends.
