Weekend Wrap: It was perfect.

Monday, February 18, 2013

After kind of a rough week, the weekend turned out nothing short of perfect!

Since I spent Valentines evening with my computer and a Gloria's chimichanga (my Mister was out of town) I was excited for Chris's arrival back into town on Friday, and more importantly, our date on Saturday!

Friday morning I had a bit of an issue. Chris took our full tube of toothpaste with him on his business trip. That left me with stinky breath a cut up tube of toothpaste. I was LITERALLY scraping the inside for whatever I could get. Desperate. Since I have been working until at least 9:30pm every night, I just didn't have the energy to go to the store...even though a Walgreen's is literally a mile away. Mouthwash was my best friend last week :)

Friday night Jessica and I met up for a mani-date. It was much needed, but I was so exhausted I could have passed out when she started massaging my arm. 

Saturday morning I realized I had an exam due on Monday...and my only free time all weekend was Saturday morning. So, I got to spend some quality time with this cutie. He worked while I took my exam. His smile makes me melt, and it was SO good to have him back in town. I sure missed him!

And apparently Wrigley missed him too...I love my boys. Aren't they so studly? Wrigley with his GQ pose...and Chris blowing on Wrigley's face to antagonize him. Typical scene around the Tucker house.

After I finished my exam we decided to have a date at the gym. Chris hasn't worked out in over a year...and he randomly decided to start on Saturday. If you're wondering...he could barley moves his arms yesterday, and no, he did not make it back to the gym. Ha! At least he still has an amazing metabolism...

After the gym we headed back to the house and I had to do more homework and Skype with my group members about an assignment.

Finally, all my homework was done and it was time to start getting ready for our date to the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek!! Eeeekkk, we NEVER get fancied up to go anywhere, so it was fun for us. Look at muh-mann rockin' that sports coat. Mmmmhmmmm. 

Our reservation was for 5:30pm. We were seated in the best place possible. Oh my, the view was to die for. We felt so fancy! If you are in Dallas and want to give and arm and a leg splurge for a meal we highly recommend going here!

Below is Chris's appatizer, Foie gras...aka duck liver. Ummmm, it tasted alright, but Chris wouldn't tell me what it was until after I tried it. I just about threw up when he told me. I am not a liver eater, but if I had to eat liver, this would be my choice.

Everything was presented SO nice.

Here we are enjoying another appetizer...crab wrapped in avocado. Yum! Isn't it funny how the more expensive food is, the smaller the portion is? 

I am going to write up a whole post on our wonderful experience at the Mansion, but for now, let's just skip to dessert!

This is what Chris chose for his dessert: Lemon-Blueberry Cheesecake Surprise. Holy cow, so freakin' good! That whole "shell" is colored white chocolate and completely edible. I opted for the Apple "tatin" with salted caramel ice cream...we both agreed we could have eaten a gallon of the ice cream alone. It was probably the best ice cream I have ever had.

After we ate, we were there for about two hours, we thought we might want to go see a movie and stay out "late"...then we thought "who are we kidding?!" and we headed home! Hahah! We were in bed by 8:45pm and, according to Chris, I was asleep by 8:46pm. I think the lack of sleep during the week catches up to me by the weekend. Working until 9 or 10 every night, then working on homework until around 1:00am, and repeating that process five days a week equates to pure exhaustion on the weekend!

Sunday started off with church, then off to Flower Mound to get an MRI for my neck. Remember the Jogger Egg Nogger? Ya, that "little" race cause me some major neck problems and I am finally getting it all taken care of!

Sunday afternoon I headed to work for a couple hours (blah, tax season) and then stopped off at the grocery store for some much needed groceries. We hadn't been grocery shopping since before Boston!

When I arrived home from the grocery store, this is what I saw. 

My sweet/handy husband was building me a shoe rack! I didn't even ask for this!! Thankfully he is always looking for projects and he thought it would be a nice gesture. He really scored some major hubby points for this one! He's the BEST! So so blessed to have him!

So much organization happening in my closet. I love it!

Now for another week ahead. Let's pray April comes fast. And then I graduate with my MBA in May. These next couple months can fly by if they want to :)

Happy Monday, sweets!
