Funkiness and Fun

I have been in a funk recently.  We recently received some frustrating/ridiculous/overwhelming news, and my funk began.  Now, before I go further, don't be too one is sick or anything like that.  I just don't feel like sharing details on my blog.

And to be honest...I have been kinda sick.  My sinuses totally betrayed me as spring sprung.  That really has nothing to do with this post.  I just wanted to publicly betray my sinuses and get them back.  So there. 

Anyway, my "funk" basically consists of me worrying.  And worrying.  And worrying some more.  It's very healthy.  It totally solves the problem too.  Works every time.  Um, yeah.

Fortunately, during this time, I have had lots of fun stuff going on to distract me and remind me how wonderful life can be.  So enough funkiness, here's some fun...

Two weekends ago I went on my getaway weekend (It was my 30th birthday gift from my lovely husband.) with my dear friend Richelle.  We went to Austin and Fredericksburg ALONE.  That's right.  No kids.  No husbands.  No responsibilities.  We did what we wanted, when we wanted.  Glorious.

 On a wine tour in Fredericksburg.
See...glorious fun. 

Then that very next Monday, Andy won tickets to the Men's Final Four Game.  I don't care about basketball, but I do like new experiences and concession stand food.  Seriously.  Hot dogs and cotton candy are delicious.  I also like free, and these tickets were just that.

 I asked the guy in front of us to take this picture.  Andy was embarrassed.  I was not.  If the guy said anything I was just going to explain that I have a blog.  I owe it to my public.
Connecticut won.  This is not who we were cheering for.  I had to ask Andy who to cheer for, and I then cheered, in between bites of my hot dog, of course. 

Then the next weekend, we took the kids to Chappell Hill for the Bluebonnet Festival.  I know...more fun and more concession stand food. Fantastic!

 Bella enjoyed a delicious blue snocone.  I am passing on my love of fine cuisine.
 We rode the train and Bella was very excited about blowing the train whistle she received.  I totally love how I'm pointing at the camera to get Hayes to look.  That really worked well.

The bluebonnets were disappointing.  It is not a good year for them, apparently.  But these two beautiful babies steal the show from the bluebonnets anyway!

Overall, the festival was great. It had that small town feel, complete with live music, yummy (appropriately priced even) food, and sweaty people out celebrating Texas. 

It was only lacking worry (and bluebonnets).  Ahhh.
