Last week, in another attempt to usher in fall, my friend Kylee and I went on a little acorn expedition at our neighborhood park all in the name of fall centerpieces for our tables in Sunday school. The acorns were abundant, and we threw these little guys together in no time. They debuted this morning and were a big hit. I have a slight acorn obsession, and I could not be any more thrilled to have such a huge supply right at my fingertips. Especially these fat guys with perfect little caps - I die!
We celebrated Austin's birthday on Friday... well Austin celebrated by taking off work and playing golf with some buddies, I celebrated by working. I did manage to fulfill his request for carrot cake cupcakes though. Ignore the pink candle...totally spazzed on that. Thankfully, he was distracted by the cream cheese icing and didn't seem to mind.
Saturday morning the girls had big plans to head to the State Fair of Texas and then to Northpark for the day. How darling are they?
Austin and I stayed back, relaxed at home, and fixed the girls some treats for that night before we abandoned them to go to the A&M game. The only photogenic thing on the menu was this veggie tray with homemade ranch dip. The girls also got pigs in a blanket, spinach and artichoke dip, and funfetti cookies for their game watching enjoyment.
Austin's birthday weekend turned out to be a little more exciting than we anticipated when some friends from our Sunday school class invited us to the A&M vs. Arkansas game mid-week last week. We were thrilled to get to go to the game and even more thrilled that the Aggies squeaked by with a W after a stressful overtime.
Our tickets were in a suite thanks to our friend's company, and the whole experience was by far the most luxurious one I've ever had involving a football game! Between the view, the comfy movie theater type chairs, the amazing food, and the private bathroom, it was hard to pick my jaw up off the floor and actually watch the game, but I managed. :) And the Aggies won - whoop for a 4-0 start to the season!
