Life Lately

I normally would be pretty bummed that it's Monday already (why does the weekend always go by so quickly?!), but this week is only a 3-day work week for John and me! On Thursday, John and I will be headed to Michigan for my dear friend Elizabeth's wedding... and I could not be more excited!

So although I'm bummed that the weekend is over, it won't be too long until we are relaxing again! Here's a quick peek of what we've been up to lately.


Normally I'm a total homebody and love to hang around the house on the weekends, but recently, if I'm not out of the house by 10AM on a Saturday morning doing something productive, I start to get restless... I'm up, ready to go, and want to get my day started! 

And if you know my husband, you know that he very much appreciates this. :)

Lunch at Down on Grayson! They have the most delicious lunch menu, and I could honestly eat here everyday and never get sick of it.

John recently got a new kayak, and to say he is jazzed about it would be a huge understatement! 

The kayak is actually designed for fly fishing and is super stable so you can stand and walk around on it. It's only a one person kayak, but it is certainly large enough that I would be able to go too if I wanted to.

Although it's not currently trout season, you can still catch some pretty little sun fish!

A sunset dinner and walking around at the Pearl.

The Riverwalk!

Dinner at Il Sogno... the food was delicious (who doesn't love fresh pasta?!), but I'm pretty sure our waiter was on drugs, ha! I would love to say I was joking, but shortly after he greeted us, John and I were both totally creeped out and were considering asking for a different server or leaving. 

We suffered through, but I'm unsure that we will go back for dinner (maybe we would try again for lunch!).

John and I had our baby care class this weekend and learned all about bathing a baby, changing diapers, swaddling, feeding, etc. I'd love to say we learned a lot, but mostly we just learned how much we don't know... oh well, we will figure it out soon enough. :) :)

We had a date night out to go see Ben-Hur at Alamo Drafthouse; it wasn't the best movie ever, but it certainly wasn't a waste of time either... I'd say it was worth the money spent, and that's all you can ask for, right?!

Lily, Lily, Lily... this puppy is too funny. I threw all of our pillows on the floor to make our bed, and Lily dug into all of the pillows and settled in with only her head perched out. 

She is such a character, and I absolutely love her for it!


  1. it looks like there are so many great places in austin! im glad you guys are having fun! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  2. Sounds like you've been enjoying yourself. I wanted to see Ben-Hur, good to know it's not a complete waste of time! Gross about the creepy waiter, but maybe next time you check it out it won't be so bad!

  3. I truly feel like parents just have these natural instincts that come out when babies arrive - you two will be JUST FINE! :) yay! You two are too cute!

  4. I am SO jealous of all your outdoor adventures! Baby Pray is going to be so outdoorsy, I love it! Btw do y'all have a name yet?!

  5. What a great weekend you two had!! And I totally agree with Owen that your little one is going to be quite outdoorsy! Have a great week.
