A Trip to Corpus Christi

Last week, Marty and I flew to Corpus Christi so I could attend the annual Texas Municipal League conference. It took a full day of flying Monday with the flight delays and trouble at Houston Hobby, but we finally made it and we were beat. We changed clothes and grabbed dinner at Blackbeard's close to our hotel. I had the fresh red fish with a garlic cream sauce and Marty had surf and turf. It was so yummy!

Tuesday I had set Marty up with a little suprise fishing trip in the bay. He had never been before and I appreciated he taking the time off from work to come with me, I wanted to do something for him that I knew he would enjoy. They had a great day on the water.

Here's Marty with his biggest catch of the day.

Jeri Lynn, Marty's sister, also drove in from Houston to spend the day with us. She's such a sweetheart and we don't get to see her enough living so far away! She and I ate at this wonderful place downtown called City Diner and I had an entire platter of you peel 'n eat shrimp. It was SO good! As was her "greasy burger" and onion rings. Afterwards, she dropped me off at my resolutions committee meeting and came and picked me up when it was over. We stopped by the office of some of my dad's colleague's and then went and met Marty and his fishing partner at Pier 99 for a frozen lemonade.

We said our goodbyes to JL and got ready for dinner at Water Street. I had a platter of coconut, pecan crusted and fried shrimp. Again, YUM! I miss seafood so much living up here!

Wednesday morning, Marty and I woke up and went for a walk on the beach. I wanted to take advantage of our hotels close proximity to the water and you can't go to Corpus w/o at least taking a little stroll.

The USS Lexington.

Oh and just so you know, there are three of us in this picture!

YES..


I am almost 14 weeks!!! We feel so very blessed! My due date is May 5, 2011! Yeah for a Cinco de Mayo baby! I've been so nauseated, but I've only actually been sick once. I am going to blame my lack of blogging on this...everything else seems so menial when you have news like this to share!

Woohoo girl, I so wanted to ask how the baby makin' was goin' but know how frustrating it is for some. Congratulations sweetie, I've been prayin' for ya'll.

The trip looked fantastic and sounded like ya'll had a grand old time.

Hubs, and I would always sneak away to South Padre' for evening strolls on the beach when we visit Brownsville but this last time it just wasn't that kinda trip. I missed that.

God bless ya'll and may all your troubles be 'little ones'! Heeehehehe!!!

I truly have no self~control! :o)

I missed this post! I was thinking today...I can't believe you hadn't blogged about the baby and then I caught up and saw this. I am just so happy for you guys and I know you're going to love this new phase of life. I couldn't blog about anything when we found out about Ellie either, I had like 2 months with no posts because I was too excited about my secret! Can't wait to know what you are having! Prayers for a healthly baby are going your way! Love you guys.
