Birthday & Mother's Day Weekend

I'm back and rested from our crazy weekend and Mother's Day all in one. We had such a great time and I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends, not to mention an amazing husband that made the whole weekend happen. Here is the weekend in pictures:

Did I find my Pottery Barn dream nursery chair?? No. It was quite depressing but I soothed my pain with clothes, Williams Sonoma kitchen accessories and new pairs of heels from Nine West... and it worked!

We went to Pottery Barn first and they didn't even have 1 nursery chair in stock, or a cute rug for Austin's room. Then we went into Restoration Hardware right next door and what do I see right next to the front door???

my nursery chair. I got so excited and then I looked at the price tag...$1300 with no matching ottoman. I tried to talk the guy into giving me his friends and family discount and he kindly reminded me that we weren't friends. Oh well, worth a try. Cristina took a picture of me in mourning.

Here are the girls at Johnny Rockets for lunch

our damage right after lunch- we had to made a stop at the car to drop it off and then continued until 8:30 that night.

We spent much of the weekend in dressing rooms....
I think here we were at Banana in the room across from Kelly waiting for her to model.

That night we drove into Austin for dinner at Trudy's- so good, I want to go back. Make sure to get the fried stuft avocado!

We didn't leave till after 10pm to go eat and walked into the restaurant full of college students. I think the modestly dressed, married girls with 2 pregnant ones stuck out a little.
We had so much fun, laughing so loud that a group of girls told us on the way out, "Don't get too drunk, or they will kick you out." Nope- just water and Diet Coke people.

pregnant friends! Chelsea is 20 weeks and I am 16 weeks

Day 2 we hit up everything we missed and headed home by 3ish to spend time with our hubbies.

pimped out at JCrew. I actually wish I had bought that hat....

our truck going home. All the trash bags are stuff full of shopping stuff and the suitcases are busting open.

When I got home Nick surprised me and had cleaned the whole house, set up babysitting and told me to get dressed to go out.

Birthday dinner at the Grand Lux in the galleria.

The next day we celebrated Mother's Day with the family and my Dad spoiled the girls with a fabulous fajita dinner.
Here is the cute birthday cake my mom made.

Thanks mom for sharing your day with me- I don't know what I would do without you.

It was such a great weekend and Nick was so sweet to me. I am so blessed to have him. He ended the weekend by giving my a joint Mother's Day/birthday gift.

This monster of a food processor. I am scared of it but really excited to learn how to use it!
