How was your weekend? Ours was busy but very nice.
Friday night a cold front came in and we woke up Saturday to 47 degrees. 
You don't know how much that meant to us here in Texas. LOL 
We haven't had weather like that since last February.

We spent all day Saturday working on the back porch.
No sweating involved! :) Tile is almost all down, about 90%.
We have been taking the railings down as we go along and repainting them, so that put us a little behind.
Here is where we are right now.

 Sunday we hurt so badly that we just had to take the day off.  LOL We are not as young anymore, that's for sure!
We went out to eat with our family and to celebrate my husband's birthday, which is today.
We had a great meal and family time at the Macaroni Grill.
It is always a treat for us to spend time with our nephew.

 I ordered the Chicken Marsala and it was sooo good! :)

 After, we came home and just relaxed for the rest of the day. Boy, that felt really good. :)
And that was our weekend.

Enough talking!
Lets get ready to party!
Last week we had an awesome get together.

  8. Hi Maria Elena,

    Happy Birthday to your husband!

    Your back porch is looking pretty and cozy. I can so relate re: the tiredness after a good day's (or half a day's!!), work in the garden or heavy duty cleaning around the house! Ouch! I'm not 22 anymore, (or even 42 for that matter!). Thanks again for the shout out re: my seaside poem and of course, for hosting such a lovely party every week.

    Have a happy week!
