Well, today marked my first day of the school year and the ending of a glorious summer vacation. Last night Nathan and I had a romantic dinner at home where we whipped up some homemade pasta with alfredo sauce and reminisced about some of our favoite summer 2015 memories. We’ve had about 6 weeks of house guests and my heart is beyond full.
A few weeks back I was graced with the wonderful visit of my best friend Faith! Later that week, my in-laws flew in for a week to hear Nathan preach in the main service for his second time ( He killed it). We made a trip the the delicious Gristmill restaurant located in the quaint little town of Gruene.
Faith and I ventured all over San Antonio during her stay. I love having a friend around who is also passionate about healthy living and was excited to wake up and run, bike, and do pilates in the mornings with me!
A few weeks ago as I was wandering aimlessly around a thrift store that I coerced Nathan to go to with me in hopes of finding an inspiring piece of furniture to add to our home, I stumbled upon this chair and knew instantly that I wanted it in my living room, I had a vision! So, Faith and my sister Annie helped with painting and it was a successfull DIY flip. I love it in our living room right now. I ‘m all about the clean white look in our living room right now.
While Faith was in town visiting we had fun getting dressed up and trying out different restaurants each night, it felt like college all over again, hitting the town with my bestie.
Nathan joined us for Cheesecake Factory one evening as well ❤
We went out on a limb and tried a new to us sushi place one afternoon after spending all morning at the zoo. However, it was far from what I think a sushi restaurant should be like in terms of quality of food, service, and atmosphere. Two thumbs down.
Now, fast forward to last week and my whole family including aunt from Arizona came to stay for the week! I sure am blessed that God gave us a big house because everyone was able to have a comfortable place to sleep, all 9 of us!
We also made a trip to Top Golf which is a cool new type of golfing that is becoming more and more popular in Texas. You aim the ball at the different colored nets placed on the course. You don’t have to be good at golf to have fun playing Top Golf.
We ended up taking the whole crew to Top Golf as well because we had so much fun there we thought they would as well, and we were right they loved it. You can even order from their menues and eat while you play which we took advantage of. The food was great and the company was even better.
Overall, this summer was wonderful and I am excited to see what God has ahead for me this coming school year. Fall is my favorite season and there is so much to look forward to from cooler weather, to holidays, tiny new First graders, to football games.
Have a wonderful week!
