Fun Weekend!

Nathan and I had a VERY fun and relaxing (somewhat....I'll get to that later) weekend! I took off Thursday and Friday of last week and Nate took off Friday. We left Thursday afternoon to spend a long weekend in Branson. It was the first time we have been able to get away by ourselves since our honeymoon and it was incredible! I think that little vacations away, alone are much needed! We enjoyed our time together so much and made a promise that we would try to do it more often.

Our first night there, Nathan and I went to dinner at Joe's Crab Shack...our FAVORITE! We love Joe's and try to visit them if we happen to be in a town with one. (Please overlook my eyes in all of these pics...the flash was so bright on my camera and I couldn't figure out how to turn it off for the first couple of days!)

Nate and I at dinner - Joe's! Yum!

I guess you could say I don't venture out much....always the popcorn shrimp!

Friday morning we woke up and Nathan decided he couldn't wait any longer and wanted to go to Bass Pro right then! So, we got up headed up to Springfield to Bass Pro....my boy was one HAPPY boy....made my day!

(yes...that is a box of Krispy Kreme donuts on the dash...don't judge. My husband has a serious love for Krispy Kreme and begged for them for breakfast. Needless to say, we bought a box for the road!)

Me and the hubs before going into Bass Pro (Bass-a-pro if you live in my house hold...this is what I thought it was called when I was little)

One happy boy...he basically ran in the doors!

That night, on our way back to Branson we stopped in at Lamberts.....DELICIOUS! That is one of my favorite restraunts and I can't wait to go back again! We only had a 10 minute wait and had our food within 15 minutes. It was so nice and SO good. Please go if you haven't been before...you are missing out.

Mine and Nate's dinner....chicken and dumplings for me and chicken fried steak for Nate. Yes, that chicken fried steak was HUGE! If you know my hubs, you know he is quite the little eater...even he couldn't eat all of that!

The next day, we did some shopping in Branson...had to stop for some pics by The General Lee

We went to the Branson Village Shoppes and passed this Christmas store....I had to take a picture for my Mom (for anyone that knows my Mom, you know how obsessed she is with Santa and Christmas!)

And of course had to get a pic with Santa for her...your welcome Mom

Nathan then decided he had not had enough of Bass Pro (Bass-a-Pro) and the one on the Landing did not do justice to the one in Springfield, so we were back on the road again up to Springfield....luckily is only a 30 minute drive or we would have been in trouble!


Road to Springfield (and a dash full of maps, coupon books, etc)

One of my new purses Nathan bought me for making the 2nd trip to Springfield (I really didn't mind going since I got a purse out of the deal!

We then headed back to the hotel and started packing up for the trip home in the morning. If there was one thing I learned on this trip, it was that I have a husband that can out shop ANY woman I know (this is what I was referring to at the beginning of my post when I said we had a some-what relaxing weekend). Not that I didn't already know that Nate loves to shop, I just didn't realize he liked it quite so much! For being such a tough, manly man, he can shop, shop, SHOP! (only for a good deal or bargain though..he will bargain with you on anything!) We had so much fun...I wish we could have spent an entire week together! I am so very blessed to have an amazing husband who cares so much about me and takes such good care of me. I can't tell him enough how much he means to me.

I hope everyone is having a good week. It has been a very busy week at work but tomorrow is Wednesday and the weekend will be here before we know it!
