Anniversary Weekend & Trip to Winnie, Tx!

Good morning, friends! First I just want to say how grateful I am to have such wonderful friends and followers here thank you so much for your kind words and comments on our Anniversary, it was perfect! To the main question of that night you're all thinking of, the answer is no, not engaged... yet! ;-) Although after a few Sake bombs and Martinis, we definitely had the "pleeeease, let's just runaway and get married right now!!" talk... So here are some pictures from our beautiful evening at the Domain in Austin on Friday night!

Scott playing me love songs as I rushed home and got ready for our date!

Dinner @ Flemings in Austin

Oh my gosh, how I loved this dress!! Not only was it sexayy but very comfortable! I received a generous amount of compliments all night (&& thank you to my sweet instagram followers!) 

To view the full amazingness of the dress, here is the link to the dress online!


To start, I had a Pomegranate Martini, Scott chose the Dirty Vodka Martini with some Sweet Chile Calamari served with banana peppers and sliced red peppers. Sooo delicious, and they were cooked perfectly.

For entrees, I chose the Shrimp Scampi in a Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce (to die for!!)
Scott chose the most mouth-watering steak we've ever tasted. A 16oz Prime New York strip.
Also for sides, the Chipotle Macaroni & Flemings Potatoes (we def took half of everything home but I was so impressed by the food and how amazing it was!)

Sake Bombs @ Kona Grill (also in Domain) for dessert!! My favorite!

A few games of pool at Sam's Boat (across the street from the Domain)
Oh, and I definitely won TWO games (Yay!) - free shots for me! Weird how much better I am at bar-games (pool, bowling, darts, shuffleboard) when I am intoxicated?? Hah who's with me on this!?

Scott was such a gentleman and so sweet all night. He defintely got a kick out of the manager @ Flemings walking by and addressing him as "Mr. Owens". hehe. It's nice to be treated like royalty when you go somewhere. We had a few giftcards too so we hooked up the waiter big-time as well.
Scottie unfortunately had to work Saturday morning (boooo!) so we called it a night and cuddled up with our little furbaby & watched some reruns of family guy falling asleep. I love my little family.

Next morning came bright and early, and as Scottie headed to work, I headed 4hrs to the middle of nowehere aka Winnie, TX to meet my mom & sister (halfway mark between Austin & Baton Rouge, LA)

When we arrived we checked into the Holiday Inn Express (it was suprisingly a new model and was extremely nice!) & decided to go explore for the day.

Winnie is very Southeast by the coast (close to Beaumont) so we drove to the Peninsula & rode along the beach and soon enough we were at the end where the Ferry meets to take you to Galveston. So we did it & headed to Galveston for dinner and drinks/watch the sunset on the beach!







Love this picture of my mama, isn't she gorgeous!?




It was so nice to be back at the hotel close to Midnight (ferry takes like an HOUR to get all the lines of cars from the island back to the peninsula)

Morning came and we had a good ole complimentary breakfast. I had some rice krispies (plus a few cheerios) with a side of English muffin Egg Sandwich

Mom headed back to Louisiana and Maddie and I decided to take a little day trip to see my girlfriend Suzy in Conroe, TX just about an hour and a half away.



It was so much fun! Suzy & I had a glass of box wine and we all played games and watched movies, ate at Buffalo Wild Wings while picking up her boyfriend Taylor at the Airport. We always love getting to see her!


Finally around 10pm we got home & immediately hopped into our PJs, grabbed Huxley & a blanket, and watched "He's Just Not That Into You" before going to bed. Gosh I love that movie so funny and cute.


Huxley was soooooo excited to see his Aunt Maddie again!!
This whole weekend was just SO much fun but also draining & I'm exhausted today! 2nd cup of cofffeee please!! The next 3 weeks will be such a blast w/ Maddie here in town!

What did everyone else do this weekend!?! Fill me in! :)
