Oh how I love weekends!

Besides being a little under the weather this weekend it was a wonderful one! Friday we started it out with dinner here:


I had one of the best filets, it took all I had not to lick my plate and ask for more haha. We had dessert at Orange Leaf, the amazing self serve yogurt place by our house. I could live there.

Saturday we spent most of the day relaxing and lounging around the house since we both were battling colds. That night we headed off to the UTEP basketball game, they were honoring all service members since it was military night. We had a blast!! Even though they lost we had a great and thanks to a mix up we even got free tickets to next Saturdays game as well.

Sunday morning I woke up with the most awful upset stomach and I really thought it was the flu but as the day went on I was feeling better. I think it may have been caused from all the coughing I was doing. I feel great now. I wanted to take advantage of feeling good so we headed off to the El Paso Zoo, finally!! We had a blast, it took us about 2 hours to walk the whole thing and they had so many amazing animals.

These 3 giraffes were hilarious they kept head butting each other.

this spider monkey dropped her food in the water to soften it, she was so smart!

seriously how cute is this meerkat!?!?!

this orangutan was so funny, he would not go anywhere without this burlap sack.

After we left the zoo we had lunch at Taco Cabana and did some shopping at the Super Target (will start doing my grocery shopping there from now on!!).

We settled in for the night to watch the Grammy's and Kyle made mandarin chicken, broccoli and rice for dinner. Such a good man!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

***Oh and a disclaimer for all you wonderful people who have to wait to file your taxes because of the education credits good news is they will start accepting them on February 14th!!!! Woo Hoo!***
