First thing we did on day 2 (Friday) was go to the jewelry store Nicole works at - she took my wedding ring to get cleaned up and such (I don't speak jeweler-talk) and I made a purchase I've been wanting to make for a while - pearl earrings! There were so many other pretty things I wanted to get but had to remind myself that we don't have a money tree growing in our backyard!
Wearing my new earrings along with the beautiful necklace my sister gave to me upon our arrival! I absolutely LOVE it and have worn it almost every day!
After visiting the store we hit up a few outlet malls (Tanger and Premium Outlets are located right next to each other) in San Marcos, just a quick drive from New Braunfels. Our trip was short but efficient with everyone leaving with a few purchases. Before heading back to the house we stopped for a quick coffee pick-me-up at the New Braunfels Coffee shop and I couldn't resist trying out another kolache. I personally liked this one better than the one we had the day before but I was the only one who did!
mmmmm kolache's. I definitely understand why people love these things.
Once we got home and took some time to relax Nicole and I got to work on homemade pizza for dinner. PJ's parents joined us and it was a great evening filled with many laughs, delicious food and wonderful company!
And now the photos of Raid from day 2:
A rare moment of her sitting still!
Raid's favorite spot is on the back of the recliner so she can see out the front window. She prides herself on being the guard dog of the house! And yes, that is my sister sleeping/avoiding being trampled. Raid doesn't care if you're sitting in that chair, she'll just jump right on up and make herself comfortable!
