After my procedure, all I wanted to do is spend time with friends and family. The next day, I went to a 30th birthday part for a close friend at Top Golf. Originally, I thought I wouldn’t be able to participate, but I was able to swing a golf club! It wasn’t my best effort, but it felt so great to be able to do something physical.
The next day, I was able to go to church for the first time in quite some time! We went out to brunch at Malai Kitchen to celebrate, and I seriously loved my Thai eggs benedict. Then, I met up with some doctors’ wives at a park in Highland Park that has giant teddy bear sculptures. It’s a park I used to visit as a kid because one of my close friends lived nearby, so it was fun to go back many years later. We had a mini picnic and chatted for several hours.
After getting my disastrous haircut fixed, I decided to reward myself with tacos. We enjoyed Urban Taco. The tacos are unique and delicious, they have lots of fun salsas, and I loved the blueberry mojito.
In September, I also loved meeting Helene, Sarah, and other bloggers at The Grove at Harwood for Helene and Sarah’s blogger meetup. It was so fun to meet Helene and Sarah and exchange ideas with other bloggers. The tacos from the food truck were super good and so were the boozy snow cones!
We also went on a double date to try a new (to us) barbecue place, 18th and Vine. I retried fried okra and actually liked it this time. We shared brisket, sausage, burnt ends, and pork ribs. If that sounds amazing, it’s because it was.
I spent the last weekend in September at a conference for doctors’ wives. I talked about it extensively here, but it was great to connect with other wives who are going through this crazy medical journey.
Now that the weather is cooler outside, Chris and I have been enjoying longer walks with Skyler and walking to restaurants close to us for dates. One of our current favorites is splitting sunset fajitas from Mi Cocina. If you’ve never had sunset fajitas, they are fajitas smothered in queso with fried onions on top.
