Not because we won't ever have a date again but this was MAJOR. Violet slept over at my MIL's and this was her first time ever sleeping somewhere else.
Saturday started with the drop off. Ignore the scratches on her mirror..but there she was having a blast with her toys and my heart was breaking that we were about to drop her off. But once it was over and I saw how happy and ok she was, we were off!....
To the great city of Austin! :) The usual 1 hour trip took about 1.5 hours. Oy the traffic on 35 is horrendous.
As we were driving into downtown it started pouring so we had to run into our first stop, 24 Diner. It was a really fun
way-too-hip-for-us place and I had probably the yummiest turkey breast + goat cheese sandwich ever and Ronnie couldn't stop talking about their coffee. He had FOUR CUPS.
When we left, the sun was out and it was hotter than a mug! But we decided to go do some shopping on Congress like the cool kids do ;) One shop had silver letters and Ronnie grabbed Violet's intials VMC and placed them on the table. It took us a second to realize someone had already placed out the words MISS YOU so it ended up saying MISS YOU VMC. Oh, we are obsessed, sad parents. ha. I even took a picture of the empty back seat when we were leaving Austin. We really did miss her!
We got back to San Antonio around 5pm and stopped by Sprint where Ronnie bought me my early birthday gift, a new HTC EVO. I looove it! Then we went home to let the dogs out, I played on my new phone and Ronnie watched the Texans game. We are so exciting!
Later that night we headed out for a late dinner at one of our fave places, The Cove. We had some yummy burgers and sweet potato fries with their sriracha mayo sauce.. Sooo good!
We got up and went to breakfast then headed over to the MIL to pick up our girl! We were so.freaking.excited! When we got there she was having her morning nap but I waited around, staring at her (obsessed I tell you!) and when she woke up and saw me, she smiled so big and started kicking like a fool. Guess she kinda loves us back ;)
