Weekend: Crawfish, Cards, & Bird Charms

We had a great weekend with some of our favorite friends from Austin in town.  Thankfully, the weather held out and was downright gorgeous for our crawfish boil festivities on Saturday.  Billy and Carly and Kyle and Kayla all braved thunderstorms and drove up to Dallas Friday night.  Austin and I were at church for a men’s conference when they arrived, so Billy and Carly came and helped out with that for a little bit before we all headed to our house and finally went to bed (the men’s conference lasted until 11:00 – aka way past my Friday night bedtime).  Billy and Carly came bearing gifts – of course I died for the bird charms… I have been in love with those since seeing Carly’s last summer!


On Saturday we had tickets for a crawfish boil at The Rustic.  The weather was perfect, and the crawfish were delish.

Carly and I left the crawfish boil around 4:00 to head home and start getting ready for dinner.  We had everyone over that night for burrito bowls and ice cream. I think there were ten people at our house that night, which it the biggest group we’ve ever had over – it was a great time! 

Sunday morning we had breakfast with Billy and Carly at Company Cafe before they headed back to Austin and we headed to church.  I made a few cards Sunday afternoon and we just enjoyed being at home before heading to Jaime and Emily’s for supper and an episode of Downton.  All in all, a pretty perfect weekend!
