This weekend has been a blur! We had a great time in Fort Worth but are absolutely exhausted!

Friday night we went to Spanos with Jeff, Hayley, Donny, Katie, and Coleman - had a blast. That place is really cool - quiet, calm, low key etc. They have the lights dimmed so much you could easily fall asleep! but, it's great food!

Saturday we woke up, packed up, loaded the dogs and headed to the boarder. Champ and Boomer were boarded around 9:15 am, went to AM donuts to get some grub, then it was time to hit the road to Fort Worth. We made it around noon and started the fun day of shopping. I dropped Julie off at Pickles and Ice Cream to shop for some maternity stuff and went to the gas station for some much needed caffeine, Yes, i was already tired! From there we went to Pier 1 - bought a pillow for the baby room and then headed to South Lake to the outdoor shopping center place thingy. Can I just say wowza?!?! I've been there once before but didn't really remember what it all entailed! Lots and lots of shops and lots and lots of walking. Seriously think we walked 500 miles - give or take

We hit up all the baby stores - to which I can't remember the names, bought some baby books at Barnes and Noble, ate at Cheesecake Factory for lunch (full - yes i think so), and went back to shopping. I think we hit up about 14 stores at this place - and I'm lazy - my feet hurt so I went back to the car to change into tennis shoes instead of my awesome but not comfortable boots.

Once we were done there we decided to head to Super Target to start registering for more baby stuff. That's always fun especially since I get the scanner gun thing. I love that - it's cool.

Saturday night was really low-key. We walked around downtown Fort Worth for a while, went to Barnes and Noble to buy some books (Mark Levin Liberty in Tyranny - yes they actually had it), went to a few more shops and headed back to the hotel for the night. Julie's favorite thing to do is order room-service and watch pay-per-view - which we did....both of them. We had a great meal (Chicken Fried Steak for me, fries, chicken strips, mac and cheese, and fruit for Julie and Reagan) and watched Marley and Me.....if you want to see that movie prepare yourself - Julie bawled like a baby.

Sunday we went to her parents house to pick up the baby bedding they got for us (it's cute) and then went to babies-r-us to register there.

Now we're home...picked up the dogs - they smelled awful so they got a bath - which they love (not really) and we're super tired. Julie was taking a nap and I was laying on the couch when we got the call the dogs were ready to be picked up - and now it's 5:25 pm - too late to lay back down and get some shut eye!! I think bed time tonight for us will be 6:00pm - for Boomer it was 5:15 - after his bath he jumped up on the couch and hasn't moved since - he'll be out for the next 2 days.....old fart!!!

We did have fun this weekend....bought lots of stuff for Baby Reagan which was cool (1 bib that says tax deduction on it and a t-shirt that says Daddy's Little Cowgirl.....she's going to be spoiled:)

I hope everyone has a great week!! Happy Easter!! More to come on Julie's blog (pics, etc.)
