First, my mom drove to Midland for the weekend (she was flying out to Nevada on Monday)...we did a lot of relaxing, played some Yahtzee, had drinks, and we saw Silver Linings Playbook (and really liked it). It was a really relaxing weekend. On Monday, she flew out, and we headed to Austin.
Obviously, this also needed to happen:

Later that day, we shared some chocolate from my new discovery, Edis Chocolates, which was delicious! Flour less chocolate cake: yes, please! The truffles were amazing too! We then went to the jewelry store downtown, and Brendan bought my beautiful wedding ring. I can't wait to show you after our wedding in July! We also ordered one for him...but we won't buy it until we're sure it fits :) After ring shopping, we stayed downtown for some SXSW music:
Speaking of passion, we were treated last night to a sneak preview of Slowgirl at Hyde Park Theatre. That experience warrants its own post. I promise to tell you about it before they open on Thursday!
We arrived home to this adorableness:
Could there be a more adorable cookie jar in this world? Uh, I think not! Squeals of excitement when I opened that one! PS-those flowers in the background were from VALENTINE'S DAY, and they still look good!
Over spring break, I did everything I wanted and more. I even finished a book I've been reading. It was nice to break away from our everyday routine and get a change of scenery. And now...we're off for another exciting weekend. Our friends, the Shews, will be here in about an hour...but, you know, I really need a shower before that happens.
Here's to breaks: keeping us both happy and sane!
