What the week holds, and a fun new place,

I realize the last several posts make it look like Hubby and I do nothing but drink.  But we are making up for lost time by enjoying a Happy Hour or wine pick-up party now and again, to sit and talk and relax.  That can't be wrong.  When our kids were small, we had NO ONE who would babysit for us, and being the self-sufficient types we were, we didn't really ask.  After all, we chose to be parents.  We were in it to win it.
We didn't have any money to spare for such frivolity, anyway, and parenting four children took all most of our free time.  At the end of a workday, or even a workweek, we were exhausted.  So we put all of that adult fun on hold for a great cause!  But we've been getting out these last couple of years and it's been fun.  Friday last week we discovered a teeny tiny bar very close to our regular grocery store.  Who knew?
It is cozy, has a delightful Happy Hour, and is just a few blocks from Hubby's new office.  Win, win, win!  This week is Spring Break here in Austin and so far the weather is gorgeous!  I have people actually lounging around INSIDE of the house - what is wrong with them.  Meanwhile, I have picked up extra hours at work since Hubby has eye surgery soon and we are somewhat short-staffed.  At the end of it, we have another pick-up party to attend - this one at Bell Springs.  I know...looks like we only drink, but I promise there is LOTS of other stuff in between!
What does your week look like?

LOL! I don't post about my cocktails, but I certainly have my fare share of them. Anyone that has raised kids deserves to celebrate ;) I say, go for it!

Congratulations on your hubby's new job and on that property you bought. It's certainly beautiful there.
