What A Weekend!

30 Apr

This weekend we did not have anything really planned and sometimes, those weekends turn out to be the best.

I started my weekend with the sitter picking up Missy Mack from school do I could head to pick our favorite mom from Life With My Brown Eyed Girls for a little happy hour while she was in Austin. Here is one of those rare photos that I am in. Keep in mind it’s after a full day of teaching for me and site seeing with two girls for Mama C.


Saturday while I was getting Missy Mack ready for dance, I became acutely aware that laundry had been washed but not folded and after digging through 5 loads of clean unfolded laundry for pink tights for ballet, I found them in the washer wet and mildewed. Fabulous! I had smoke coming out my ears and angry tears rolling down my face as I drove to the dance supply store to purchase a new pair of tights before dance class.

When we returned home, I had a messy house to clean and 5 loads of laundry to put away. I was feeling pretty sorry for myself so I solved that problem.


Then it was time to meet Mr. Mack for Springfest in downtown Bee Caves. Missy Mack wanted to ride rides.



And jump on one of those bungee trampoline things.





After rides, jumping, face painting and pink hair, we got to drink some beers and listen to Bruce Robison & Kelly Willis– my all time favorites!




While they sang, Missy Mack danced. All she needs is a stage.




Lucky at this festival, there was plenty of this:


Sunday, a friend treated us to her tickets to a children’s theater since they were unable to attend. We went with unicorn on the cheek and pink hair. It was a great story/puppet show called The Man Who Planted Trees. This performance was spot on. Popcorn by the tubs, adult beverages, humor, audience participation, interesting story & great puppets.

After we went to the coolest restaurant in town: Home Slice Pizza. All the people who work there have a sign pinned to them that says ‘What’s Up Home Slice’. Hee Hee.

Missy Mack had her first Coca Cola.


This place is so funny. The kids coloring page has a place for them to draw Hall & Oates. Here is Missy Mack’s version.



They hang up all the pictures all over the restaurant. They have a D. J. That spins old school rap. It made me feel young. All the Mack’s were jammin at the table. I had the special slices. The most perfect pizza ever. The sauce is so good, the toppings are not cheap and the crust is amazing.


We actually had dessert. Mr. Mack and split the most divine slice of cheesecake. Divine. Missy Mack had the most giant piece of Rice Krispy.


They end the meal by asking you old school trivial pursuit questions for 10% off your ticket. We got all three of our questions wrong, but he still gave us the discount.

Other than my rage on Saturday, this turned out to be a perfect weekend.
