5 Years

> On July 27, we celebrated our 5 year anniversary! I can’t believe it has been that long! We celebrated by staying at the new W Hotel in downtown Dallas. We had a great weekend eating at all of our favorites and some new places (including, but not limited to, Houston’s, Nine, Breadwinners, Campisi’s, and Sprinkles). Yes, we both gained …

Three Friends and a Baby

>This weekend I got to get together with my three best friends from A&M! Emily, Mikalah, and I headed down early Saturday morning to visit Amber and her 2 sweet girls!

Week with the Girls!

The 4th and a Weekend Get-away

Big Freakin’ Zucchini

>Seriously. I just had to blog this. I know my pictures don’t do it justice, but my father in law just brought over the biggest zucchini I have ever seen! It must be at least 5 inches in diameter. It’s as big as my dog, see?? I can’t wait to chop it up matchstick style and fix it in Rachel …

Summer of No Vacations…

>Well, I know I shouldn’t complain, but here I go. We are stuck in Texas all summer. Not that I don’t love Texas, because I do, but seriously, summers are for vacations, right?

Happy Summer!

Well today was it, and it started off crazy! I walked into a dark school only to realize that we had no power. This was definitely going to be a “last day of school” to remember! Thankfully, the power came on around 8:30 AM so I only had to try teaching–yea right, teach? on the last day of school?? anyway— …

Now This Explains It…

Title and quote taken from today’s My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers: “If you are going through a solitary way, read John 17, it will explain exactly why you are where you are- Jesus has prayed that you may be one with the Father as He is. Are you helping God to answer that prayer, or have you …

Shout out to my dad…

My dad…what can I say? I have so much love for him, I can’t begin to tell about all of the reasons why he is so wonderful. Anyone who knows him will tell you he is a special person. He is a one of a kind, quiet soul who has never met a stranger. He can talk to anyone about …

We were there…

Yes, folks, we witnessed the coldest game in Ranger History at The Ballpark in Arlington. As the first pitch was thrown, the temperature read 38 degrees. Of course, when we purchased the tickets we had no idea winter was going to return. But, if you know Trey, you know there was no way we were wasting that money. He was …

Boots the Dog

> We never thought we’d own a dog. We would have bet a hundred $$ that we would never have an inside dog. We probably would have bet our lives that a dog would never sleep with us. Well, we have a dog, an inside dog, and he hops to the foot of our bed every night to fall asleep. …
