A Peek-in to our Weekend

This past weekend was a full one!  We started our Saturday morning with our Sunday school class for the aforementioned brunch and monogram party.  Oh, and the boys went fishing while the girls did our girly eating and crafting.  We had fabric and thread galore – thank goodness for Jessica’s stash and her sewing skills!

We started by choosing our fabric and our thread color, then Jessica’s handy machine did our monogramming on our fabric of choice.  Then, as Brooke is expertly demonstrating in the above picture, Winking smile we cut out our pocket shape.

The next step was surging the edges of the pocket so that they wouldn’t fray with wear and washing.  Jessica had a handy surger that we all got to take a turn using.  Here I am just surging away!  Next we ironed the edges of the pocket down before placing the pockets on our shirts and making sure we had them pinned just right.

Finally it was time to sew, and Jessica demonstrated to show us all how it’s done!  Here is the expert with her finished product.  Thank you, Jessica!  I was terrified that I was going to RUIN my shirt, but I survived and am proud to say I sewed it all by myself.

I’m obsessed! 

Saturday afternoon I took a quick nap at home before it was time to get ready for our dinner out with Katey and Casey.  We had a fun little DFW Restaurant Week double date at Pappas Bros Steakhouse.  We had an early reservation, so Austin and I toyed with the idea of going to see a movie afterwards, but we ended up coming home and watching two episodes of Friday Night Lights.  P.S. We only have like four episodes of the whole show left, and I don’t know WHAT in the world we are going to do when it is over?!  

Sunday was a great day at church.  We have missed our regular Sunday routine the past three weeks due to our traveling, and it was so nice to be back where we belong on a Sunday morning. 

We enjoyed some of our dinner leftovers for lunch then made a quick run to Trader Joe’s for groceries for the week.  When we got back home, my grandparents were here!  They drove over from Louisiana to attend a gospel concert at our church on Sunday night.  We loved having them and getting to visit on Sunday afternoon and attend the concert that evening.  The concert wasn’t over until about 9:00 pm, and we were so hungry when we left!  Mammo and Pop had never been to Pei Wei, so we settled on that, and everyone had a delicious late night supper.  It was such a treat to have them visit us! 

Well, that about gets us all caught up on our weekend.  We’re both having good weeks at work so far, and we’re looking forward to another weekend in the big D!
