With the family at Perry's
The waiter preparing our Bananas Foster table side. YUM!
Nick and Alia
Nick and Alia are dear friends of ours that we were thrilled to spend time with. Alia and I met while at SMU and became fast friends. She was maid of honor in my wedding, and I was in hers. We have so many memories together...singing late at night in our dorm rooms, sharing fajitas at Pappasitos (a real treat for starving freshman!), meeting the loves of our lives and encouraging each other through each season of life. She is a wonderful musician (violin and singing), an incredible songwriter, and amazing friend. We never imagined we would end up in the same city, yet here we are, and it is wonderful! Nick is one of the happiest, sweetest people we know, and the two of them together are just incredible. We love you guys! It was great to kick back and relax together.
Kim and Eric are wonderful new friends of ours. We met them in the middle of the summer and love them already. We were at a Sunday School social for the first time (it has taken me 3 years to get up the courage to go to SS on my own, and now I am loving it! Adam can't go b/c he is always in the church service), and on our way home Adam told me he had a great conversation with a guy named Eric. I told him I had met Eric's wife and LOVED her. We were so excited to find a couple where we both enjoyed time with them, and were thrilled to find out that Eric and Kim wanted to get to know us better, too. (We laugh and think that making new couple friends is kind of like dating. You know...did they have fun? Do you think they will call us? I hope they liked us like we liked them! Haha!) Anyways, this couple has a contagious joy and love for the Lord. They are so much fun to be with, and even like the Target lady from SNL (Yes! It's a match!) Thank you, Lord for new, dear friends!
It was so special to join our seasoned friends with our new ones and celebrate together. We were so refreshed from that evening! Ok, back to pics...
Blowing out (ok, trying to blow out) the trick candles. Took him at least 3 times, heehee!
A cheesy message for my musician...
Adam's thank you for the cake. Apparently it went over well! :)
Looking forward to MANY more years, honey! I love you!
