weekend review - retreats, encores, and hgtv

Colt spent the weekend at Hazak, our church's men's retreat, so I decided to move in with my parents for the weekend.  They watched Duke for me so much that it ended up feeling like I was on a retreat myself.

Friday night, Mark and I drove to Shawnee to play/sing with Karlie for her Senior Encore performance.  There's just nothing like making music with your family.

There's also nothing like Van's Pig Stand.  Yum.

Any time I'm back on the OBU campus, I enjoy it so much.  I just love that place.

(The inside of Ford Music Hall - not to be confused with the inside of the The Titanic.)

Sara and Reese also came.  (Because not only do they come to everything I do, but they come to everything my sister does.  They're that great.)

We all went out to Bricktown Brewery (Yes, in Shawnee.  I was just as confused as you are.)  afterwards and had laugh after laugh after laugh.

I got in late to my parents' house, quietly stepped as I went upstairs, and peeked in on my precious sleeping boy.  It was such a lovely night.

The smell of pancakes, sausage, bacon, and eggs woke me up on Saturday morning.  (Thanks, dad.)  After breakfast, I spent the rest of the morning watching HGTV (a true luxury for a girl with no cable) and playing with Duke.

That night, a few of us went over to Tally's for a girls night since all of our husbands were gone.  We ate Big Truck Tacos followed by Starbucks and a nail painting session.

On Sunday afternoon, Colt got home.  However, he had to leave just a couple hours later to go lead music and teach in the youth service.  After that, we finally got to catch up and talk about our weekends.

We have a ridiculous week ahead.  I told Colt yesterday that I think this will be the busiest week of my life since becoming a mom.  I probably won't be blogging the rest of this week so I wanted to remind you about Thursday night.  Karlie and I are playing at Tres Cantina in Norman from 6 p.m. - 7 p.m. as part of the Norman Music Festival.  Come out and hear us!


  1. What a fun weekend! I was actually thinking about you this weekend with NMF and the marathon - it's going to be crazy for you!!

    Can't wait to see you on Thursday!

  2. So, that picture of Duke and Gpa Skip is precious!! Good to know that OBU still looks the same - probably smells the same too, huh? :) And that breakfast sounds yummy (and I bet it tastes even better than when you make it yourself!) - can I move in for a weekend too? Tell them I promise to bring Norah and let them play with her...

    1. AND kick buuuuuuuuutt this weekend!!! :) So excited for you!

    2. Oh, they'd love for you to move in for a weekend! Seriously, sometime when you guys come back to OKC, we should all go spend a few days/nights there. They have plenty of sleeping space for everyone and would absolutely love it!

      And thanks! I'm hoping to kick some serious butt!
