Weekend in Austin

Well, since there hasn't been much action on the house front yet, I thought I'd make a quick post from our weekend. We got back to Dallas late last night after a fun weekend with friends and family in Austin! Saturday - I baked all day long (with the help of my mom and sister) for a baby shower I was helping to host on Sunday. We then headed down to the stadium to tailgate with some friends and go to the UT game with my sister and her boyfriend Matt. That was the first time we had been inside the stadium since they built the addition on the north end-zone. I couldn't believe how much louder it gets in there now - and they were only playing Rice. I can't imagine the noise level when it's a big conference game! Here's some pics from the game...

Anyways - Sunday we got up and headed up to Cedar Park for a baby shower that a group of girls that I worked with at GSD&M and I were hosting. It was so fun to see everyone from work again - and eat some great food! Here are some pictures of the cookies I made, and the rest of the food/decorations/people from the shower.

The delicious food! Yummy cucumber sandwiches, red pepper hummus sandwiches and egg salad!
All the hostesses with the mommy to be - minus Danika!
The guest of honor!
Our first design meeting is next Monday - I'll keep you posted on how it goes! I'm also working on starting a binder for the house (if you knew me at all when I was planning our wedding, I can be a bit of an organization freak), so I'll try and post some of the design boards I'll be making for each of the rooms!

P.S. I love getting comments - leave me one so I know you stopped by!

Pin It!

Brittany, I know this is an old post, but I remember visiting you guys when you were baking the cookies. That was when I came to visit in Texas with Emma when she was almost 2. Reading about Hadley got me interested in the rest of your blog! Thanks for the reading material!
