How to have a happy weekend

  • Get in car, drive to Austin.
  • Visit my favorite yarn shop and purchase fabulous yarn to make another baby blanket.
  • Stop here for the best cupcake I've ever had (a Vanilla Dream Whipper Snapper, to be exact).
  • Devour above mentioned treat, get frosting on my shirt, cupcake in my hair and a smile on my face.
  • Make homemade pizza with dad and step mom, sit on their deck and watch the wonderful rain while drinking some dang good zin.
  • The next morning, take child for chocolate chip pancakes and see the smile on his face.
  • Drive home, stopping here along the way.
  • Treasure their "honor system" set up - be thankful things like this still exist.
  • Buy some gorgeous flowers, fall squashes and tiny eggplants. Get another smile on my face.

  • Be welcomed home by the sight and sound of more rain (and a husband and dog who missed us).
  • Put child to bed, hear him say he loves me "more than the whole wide world."
  • Climb into bed with a smile on my face and a tear in my eye. Be thankful for a happy weekend!

We had a great weekend with you and Jaden. "Forever in my heart (special moments) and forever on my hips (the cupcake)"
