Weekend Rewind

What a beautiful weekend! As I mentioned, the weather this weeked was picture perfect--Highs in the low 80s, lows in the upper 60s and almost zero humidity. This was definitely not typical Missouri weather in July. Friday night we just spent the evening at home & rested up for my big debut on Saturday. I was definitely a tad bit nervous about my first 18-hole round of golf, but I do have to say I did have some moments of brilliance. I actually only finished about 12 of the 18 holes--if I got frustrated or really tired I would just pick up my ball. The main problem I had was just getting tired because the course was busy and we had to wait a little bit on almost every hole before teeing off--plus, since this was my first venture at 18, I don't think I really knew what I was getting into. I managed to hit some shots that even impressed my wonderful coach, Hubby and I was even able to hit par on at least 2 holes & one really impressive bogey on the hardest hole on the course.

Our first official golf outing

One of my best holes of the day (I even managed to get it across the water on my first shot!)

The professional golfer--I love to watch him play!

We had a great time & I always love to watch Hubby do something he's passionate about & we all know he's certainly passionate about his golf!

After golf we headed down to the Branson Landing for dinner. Hubby had made reservations at our absolute favorite place to eat: Cantina Laredo. I think I could eat here almost every week & while there are certainly other great places to eat in Branson we don't hardly drive down there without eating at Cantina. It was a beautiful night & we were able to enjoy a lovely table outside on the patio overlooking Lake Taneycomo. We had a great view of the wonderful fountain/fire show & just enjoyed the lovely evening.

Cantina Laredo!!! YUM YUM!!! Oh how I love thee...Hot Apple Pie with Brandy Butter & Cinnamon Ice Cream!

The awesome fire & fountain show at the Landing!

Today I headed to a baby shower for the daughter of one of the ladies I work with. Her little girl is due in September. I failed to take any photos but she got lots of really cute things & some of those definite essentials as well. Hubby also did some yard work & we just worked around the house getting ready for a new week.
