Friends Weekend...

What a great weekend! I saw three of my friends this weekend that I don't get to see that often!!! One friend from HS came in Friday night and we met up with her and some other friends and went out Saturday night. We went out to their house and grilled and ate and had a good time haning out then went to a club and went dancing until nearly one in the morning...whew, I must be getting old (or out of practice) b/c I was so tired! But we had fun! Then my best friend had come to town and came over Sunday morning and we had lunch w/ Elaine and spent the afternoon together. Dennon, Elaine, and I had a great lunch at Baba Yagas (though my mimosa gave me a bit of a headache...) then went for coffee at Brasils and to sit and chat and people watch! Afterwards Elaine told us about some rather interesting sites she had seen while wandering around the day before...she had found these busts and we just had to get out and wonder around them and take some pictures. The artist is David Adickes...you'll know who is by from this. I have scene the Sam Houston statue several times driving by and even up close when we went to Huntsville for a friend's graduation, but never knew, or really even wondered, about the artist! Well, now we know he is a local! Thanks for sharing your discovery Elaine...
After leaving Elaine, though, unfortunately I wasn't up for much b/c my headache was still slightly lingering...so Dennon and I decided to make a night of it at home and rented a movie. Needless to say we were on the couch the rest of the evening.
It was a great weekend, though...it was great to catch up and hang out w/ friends!
Elaine and I also exchanged b'day and Christmas presents. I won't be in town during her b'day party so we had our own gift exchange...and went ahead and did Christmas, too! She gave me a beautiful Amy Brown print that I love! I'll have to take a picture when I get it hung up...and I have the perfect place above this shelf, obviously!!!
Well, I am going to be late for work if I don't get moving! Thanks everyone for a great weekend!
