Can't Get Enough

girl time. Wednesday night I downed a few and watched The Hills with L - we stayed up way too late and talked way too much.

Thursday night I went over to spend some time with M while Brando worked late. The kids watched cartoons in her room while we sat and chatted and it felt like old times when she was pregnant with sweet baby K.

Friday night I spent the night at Kel Bel's again, only this time Brando kept the boys. Her and I went to Nutty Brown's for beers, jalapeno poppers, southwestern egg rolls, and bad karaoke. We talked loud, dared each other to do karaoke - once I learn how I'm totally dragging her up there and she DOES know how to sing, and laughed even harder. We got home at 12:30am and fell asleep watching Stepford Wives. We woke up right when the main character's head comes off and sleepily crawled into bed to sleep the rest of the night.

Saturday we woke up and shared an avocado, bacon, and tomato omelette and french toast downtown at the bar at Kerbey Lane Cafe. We decided to walk the shops on South Congress, which is called SoCo, and is something we've both been dying to do but hadn't done. We found a costume store - perfect for the masquerade ball girls we'll be for Halloween, Uncommon Objects with bizarre but mostly wonderful antiques (LOVE those places!), and Parts & Labour with complete Austin artist creations and my favorite jewelry maker's wares. We walked and shopped three blocks before we headed home so we'd still have a few to cover the next time. We have so much fun together and LOVEd it as much as we thought we would!

Kel Bel and I parted ways and friends came over to our house for a dinner of Monterey Chicken, grilled zucchini, spinach salad with tomato and avocado, foccocia with olive oil, garlic, & balsamic vinegar, and brownie sundaes for dessert.

When they left I went over to L's and yakked until midnight with her while she baked and decorated a cake for her boyfriend, wrapped his presents - she bought him the Rocky dvd series he loves and had but had gotten stolen and a Steiner mix pack with a red bow on top, and wrote his cards.

Sunday, today, we went to church and then to lunch with the new social coordinator for our sunday school class, her hubby, and another couple from our class. We brainstormed ideas and created a social team with the other girl and I to boost her along. One of the ideas we came up with was the kayaking on Town Lake with the whole group. Sounds like a blast!

This afternoon Brando slept like a baby and the boys watched movies and cartoons while I hung out at M's with her and Casbar, her coworker, while they made enchiladas and cookies for another coworker who just had a baby.

We finished off the weekend with a hike on the cliffs of the mountain next to Austin's locally famous 360 bridge.
