Texas Road Trip

This past weekend Stephen and I loaded up the car, dropped the kiddo off at my parents house, and headed to Houston for a quick weekend to visit some friends and see my friend Brett get married.

Driving across the Mississippi.



Here we are driving to the wedding, before the torrential rain and getting lost for 45 minutes. Did you know it rains as much in Houston as it does in Florida, only their highways make me a nervous wreck. Thank the Lord for my patient husband!


It’s here people, the bump has made its appearance. It seems our little one is growing perfectly and it’s becoming more and more real that we are really having another baby!



Waiting for the reception to begin. It was at a beautiful resort in The Woodlands. Kelly and Brett looked amazing and it was so wonderful getting to celebrate with them!



Kelly and I sending our friend Melissa a picture to let her know we miss her. We all went to high school with Brett. There were many college road trips, and post-graduation hangouts. We are all married now. It’s crazy to think that we’ve known each other for well over 10 years. Heck, I’ve known Brett since 7th grade… and now we’re all grown ups!



We decided to make Melissa a place at the table so she could be there with us :)


Here’s Kelly and I with Brett, the groom.


Kelly and her hubby Brian. They moved to Houston a few years ago, and Brett moved there last November. It seems Houston has become a popular place these days.


Stephen and I, and new baby :)



Our friends, the Shaws. Stephen and Sarah housed us for the weekend and it was great getting to have some downtime with them, as well as a few tasty meals that Sarah made for us.



We got to see JD Saturday and Sunday. I love that we have so many friends that we are able to pick up with as if no time has passed.



Grabbing lunch on Sunday before we headed out.



On the way home we stopped in New Orleans and had a great visit with our friends Matt and Elise. We grabbed dinner at a local burger joint and hung out at their place while we enjoyed some delicious cookies and got to hear about their recent trip to Paris.



It was a wonderful weekend and I am so glad we were able to see so many wonderful people that we love, but we were definitely happy to get home to our little girl. I doubt she even noticed we were gone with all the attention she got, but I’m glad that we are getting our share of the hugs and kisses.

I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend. I can’t believe it’s already the middle of July! It’s going to be fall before we know it, which I’m certainly not complaining about, I would love a break from this heat!

    Looks like you had a great trip! So happy for Brett! Can’t believe I’ve not seen him even once since graduation — he was one of my favorite people. Perhaps, we should have our own mini 10-ish-year reunion?

      Mini-reunion for the win! :D We had a blast getting all those pictures “with you”. Studying is top priority! We need someone to call when we go crazy breaking the law :)
