Thursday when I got home from work, Michael had this on the kitchen table for me!
You may not can tell by the picture, but that is strawberries, pineapple, and grapes! I loved it! Anna Claire ate all the grapes though. :) This made me smile.
Friday (which was our anniversary), we kept the kids home from daycare to spend some time with them before we left them with my parents for two nights. We took them to Brookhaven Friday afternoon. It was Paxton's first spend the night away from home and he stayed TWO nights! Anna Claire has never even stayed two nights before. I didn't cry this time. Yay me! When we got home, Michael grilled steaks and we watched Inception. It was nice and quiet.
We got up early Saturday morning and headed to Memphis! It was so nice just getting away from home for a couple of days. Michael and I rarely get any time by ourselves anymore. We stayed at the Springhill Suites downtown. It was by far the best hotel we have stayed at. Good Job Michael!
It rained the whole time we were there on Saturday. It finally stopped sometime late that afternoon. We decided to walk to our restaurant. It would have been nice if it wasn't freezing! We ate at the Texas de Brazil restaurant. It was yummy! If you've never heard of it, check it out! If you are okay with spending a pretty penny for a meal, it was well worth it. BUT if you are a vegetarian, I do not reccomend that you go there. :)
When we were done eating, we walked around for a while then headed back to the room. We decided to see a movie. Its just one of those things that we don't get to do often. We saw Unknown. It was really good! I can honestly say that I have never been to a theater like the one we went to. It was the perfect place to take a date. It was very dark lighting and the lobby was set up like a bistro. They served wine, cheese, all sorts of desserts, and then your usual movie eats. Michael and I settled with Diet Coke and a piece of cheese cake.
Sunday, on our way home, we stopped in Oxford to see Michael's brother. We went to lunch and visited for a while. It was nice. Michael hasn't seen him since Christmas.
And then we came home to this :)
Yep, I love going BUT I love coming home! I thank God everyday for my family he has blessed me with. He gave me a husband that loves the Lord, me, and his kids. He is a great daddy and I couldn't ask for any better! Sometimes I think that I don't deserve him. And he has blessed me with two healthy kids. They amaze me everyday.
I want to end this by encouraging everyone to look at this movie trailer! It is from the writers of Fireproof. Courageous
