Anniversary Weekend

WOW! I am very behind on things I need to post! Here are pics from our anniversary weekend. Thursday night before we left, my brother and Ashley were kind enough to come over and watch the kiddos while we went to the Bob Schneider concert in Dallas. (THANKS SO MUCH!!)

Bob is one of our favorite musicians and it was such a neat show! It was a very intimate setting inside a YOGA STUDIO of all places! We had to take off our shoes.
Me and Bob...this pic is for Dr. Tabor! ;) A fellow Bob FANatic.



We went with Adam, Adam, and Katie! FUN TIMES! We really appreciate the times we are able to get out and hang with our friends!

Friday, we left the wee ones with the sweet ladies from church (who ROCK!) and headed to Austin. Yes I miss my babies when we leave, but Joe and I really try to focus on having fun with each other and connecting with friends when we are away! I have complete confidence in the church friends who come over to help and in our families...so, it really takes the worrying out of the equation. (That, plus the fact that I am laid back to begin with! It helps!)
Lake Travis (Austin)...on the balcony.

We went out to eat Friday night at the Iguana (on the lake)...it is one of our favorite restaurants! Jason and Molly joined us!



Saturday: Joe set me up with a 90 minute deep tissue massage (HEAVEN! I had needed one since my body endured a quad pregnancy and all the wonderful things that happened to it!) Joe played golf with 3 of his buddies...then we (plus Dan, Dani, Jason, Molly, and Clayton) met at the Steece's house (while they were here watching our kiddos---MUCHOS GRACIAS!) and grilled out/got in the pool-hot tub/watched aggie b-ball which was disappointing and hung out all afternoon. It was great! Saturday night we got all dressed up and went to a fancy schmancy restaurant, Eddie V's, and had a nice anniversary din din. They found out we had quads and needless to say, dessert and coffee drinks were on the house! SO NICE! (yah, can't believe I didn't take ANY pics!...just caught up in the moment....awwwww!)

Sunday was Joe's b-day, we ate a little brunch and hit the road...couldn't wait to get back to love on those fat cheeks! So it was a wonderful weekend, that was only possible with the help of friends and family--whom we could not live without! THANKS A HEAP!

I am working on a post, all about JOE! Complete with pics while we were dating and some of my wedding favs! Also working on Savannah updates and answers to your questions--please don't think I'm ignoring you!!

Okay, I thought about leaving this anon, but then I thought about how much anons annoy us with questions like this one, so I'm gonna fess up and take it like a true quad mama! HA!

Suz, do you have a beaded necklace to go with EVERY outfit? I love 'em.

Sounds like you guys had a blast! We just celebrated our 2nd anniversary and it was heaven as well! Glad you got to get out sans the kiddos! :)

Krystyn said...

Looks like you had a blast! Thanks for making me miss Austin (I went to school for 4 years in Georgetown).

I'm glad you were able to get away and have such a great support system.

Suzanne said...

murray, you are crazy! NO I DON'T HAVE A BEADED NECKLACE TO GO WITH EVERY OUTFIT! some are pearls...jk jk jk! of course not. we are talking CHEAP jewelry! target, old navy...i "splurge" at a boutique called francescas occasionally... but for the most part, i've had this stuff for years and just MAKE it go with outfits!(even if it doesn't!) glad you like em! you just might get one some day from a fellow quad mom! ;)

Hollie said...

Oh, you and Katie look fabulous - AS ALWAYS!! (my sister-in-law is Katie's sister, Annie). Sounds like a fun (and much needed!) break! I love reading about your precious family!

Stephanie said...

Glad you enjoyed your alone time!! I can imagine how you can get caught up in the moment when you get very little time to yourselves! Happy (late) Anniversary!

Nancy Hood said...

I love the retro look of your newly designed page!! and the header is just too cute. Hope you know you are on the friends list of just about all my blogger friends here in central Alabama! We all love keeping up with the Steece babies! Thanks for being an inspirational Christian family~the world needs this.

The Johnstons said...

So glad you had a great time! Everyone needs a break, even from kiddos as precious as yours. I totally dig your Target jewelry, you always look fantabulous!

Mrs. Wilson said...

You have the most beautiful smile! And a couple (if not all) of your kiddos have nicely acquired it as well ;)

You are such an amazing lady =)
You and your sweet family deserve all the blessings God has for you! And its so refreshing to see a family that enjoys and praises Him for all His goodness!
Thanks for sharing!

Happy anniversary to you both!! Sounds like y'all had an amazing weekend!

Stephanie said...

You do have some fun jewelry! I love Target! ;) Glad you got some time away..you look great! Thanks for keeping us updated!

Jennifer Prince said...

Yay! Sounds like you have fun!! You guys deserve it!

Ok-not to sound stalker-ish, but I LOVE your hair! Seriously- you must have tons of people tell you that you have great hair. I love how you can do so many different styles. Was there a pic you brought to your hair person? And how do you do the cute flips out?

I know, I'm sure you have plenty of spare time to answer my hair questions.! LOL! But I love it!!!

Your little girl looks just like your husband!

Suzanne said...

ok, jen and jen...yall are making me blush. you've got to be kidding me! ;) i dry my hair making it flip out (alot of it is the cut..i have a really good hair cutting person)...curl big pieces with a large round curling iron...and spray it with pantene textured hairspray while scrunching it with my fingers to make it flip out.

Hollie said...

Oh girl...you know I stop by your blog daily (even though I KNOW you don't have time to blog daily...I still check!) Yes, I am Chris' twin. How cool are those Sheedy characters? I just love being around them!

I'm glad you guys got some time away....and GOOD FOR YOU for knowing how to let go and enjoy your time with your hubby! I still struggle with that. It is the only way we can reconnect (and get out of Mommy mode for once!) You guys are so stinking cute!

Jenny said...

Love it!!! Your blog looks so cute! Jennisa did mine too
Sooo glad y'all had a great time last weekend. Oh, and I'm always admiring your necklaces too... :0)

Hi Suz,

I just found out I am going to be a fellow Quad Mommie. We got to see the ultrasounds today and look at their little hearts beating. What a miracle. I am going to be checking your post daily for tips and inspiration. You are amazing. I am just praying that God will help me raise these babies in the way He wants, I don't know how I would get through this without Him.

Barbara Manatee said...

Sounds like a great time! I'd love one of those massages! Whew! What our backs go through, lifting kiddos all day long!

Where did you get the necklace you are wearing in your profile pic?

.......................Honeycutt Family said...

So glad that you and Joe were able to get away together and enjoy yourselves!
Love,
Jen
P.S. Suz--your hair is so darn cute in the last pic. I like the 'flip-out' look!

BoufMom9 said...

Wow! What a wonderful weekend! I have yet to get away from my twins and they are 17 months old! I so so so wish I had family I could depend on. :(
PS You looked absolutely stunning in the last photo. How do you have 4 babies and look so gorgeous all the time????

Kate said...

i found it through cfhusband.blogspot.com

have a great day!

Jen said...

Happy Anniversary Suz! I'm glad you got some much needed together time!

God Bless,

Jen

Jenn B. said...

I'm glad Jen Murray asked the necklace question b/c I wondered the same thing!

I personally just got a purple beaded one online from Target for less than $3. :) My 3 year old loves my beaded necklaces.

The Dixons said...

I'm so glad that you and Joe had some time together. That can be a hard thing to do once you become parents, but so important! I believe that it should be a crime to look as smokin' as you do and be a mom of quads!! LOL you look great!

Anonymous said...

I agree with how great you look...I have to admit I have been a lurker for some time and never left a message. I love all the quad blogs and you guys are all an inspiration to me...I only have one and am overwhelmed some days :)
Suz, I also have noticed your great beads and consequently dug out all my old bead and have been dressing up my outfits....you are a trend setter :)
Think of your family and send prayers. Our God is an awesome God and it's neat to connect over the net with a fellow believer! Thanks for sharing your family! Those children are GORGEOUS!!!
A sister in Christ,
Shelly

Goerlich Quadruplets said...

Too cute! We luv Bob! He is probably flashing the same photo all over Tejas since you are more of a claim to fame than he is now! ;) We've been reading all of the posts and think your kiddos are adorable! They are growing up so fast! Lots of love! Mari & Chris

Elizabeth said...

What a cute couple!! Congrats on everything you guys have done in the last five years. Who would have thought...Love you guys!!!

Random Question...Where did you get your "Suz" post signature? It's so cute!
