Back in Galveston. All good things must come to an end. We'll definitely be doing this again.


This little elephant was my favorite towel animal.


Today was our day in Cozumel. The beaches were so nice, I wish we could have stayed longer.


Going on a friend cruise was the best idea ever, I love our friends!


Today was our first day on the boat. The sun is quite enjoyable in December. Yes, we all played on that slide.


It's cruise weekend! Four of us left Wednesday evening for Galveston and what's a drive down I-45 without a stop at Buc-ee's?!?

We went to the Palo Duro Canyon State Park today. I hadn't heard of it, but apparently it is the 2nd largest canyon in the US. It was way too cold and windy to explore, so we will definitely have to come back in the spring. 


Tonight we went to The Big Texan. It's a huge steakhouse/tourist trap here in Amarillo. They even had a 72 oz streak eating contest. Pretty gross, but amusing. I know it's a funny place for non-meat-eaters to go, but their non-meat foods were delicious.

We're officially homeowners! Our closing was this afternoon, and tonight we celebrate.

We spent our Sunday evening at Nickelmania with our friends. Here is a portrait we had sketched by Leonardo, I think it's pretty lovely.

So we did something a little different yesterday... we went to a NASCAR race. I never would have thought I would attend one (the extent of my racing knowledge is limited to Mario Kart), but our friend Nathan and his mom had 2 extra tickets and asked us to go. It was a totally new experience, lots of new sights and sounds and smells.

After work Trey and I stopped at an Asian grocery store. We're driven by it a so many times that we decided to just stop and see what they had. There were so many vegetarian and soy things! Of course, there was a meat market where they were killing fish and it smelled a little off, but they did have tons of fun things. We were in there for almost an hour looking at everything.

Earlier today we went to the Texas State Veggie Fair which was like a mini State Fair with all vegan food. It was fun and it happened to be a perfect day to be outside. This evening I made pumpkin cupcakes and we watched the Saints dominate. I love fall!!!!

I came home to a nice surprise on my porch after work. My parents sent us a Jack O'Lantern Scentsy! It's been a long week; we're definitely looking forward to a relaxing weekend.

This weekend we went to Jordan & Mallory's cabin in Quitman, TX with a few of our friends. We rode 4-wheelers, shot potato guns, and made s'mores. It was a lot of fun and a welcomed break from a long week of work.

The Town's family reunion (Trey's side) was the other weekend. Reunions are always an adventure.

We did it, we signed a contract, we're buying a house!!!!!!!!

Today we went to a Greek restaurant after work to unwind from a long week. I want to go back to Greece so bad! Also, today is the first day of Autumn and strangely enough it was actually cool outside. 


We have been house hunting for awhile now, and I think we might have found a winner. It's a great feeling to walk into a house and know that it is the one.

We may have passed the one year mark, but the fun isn't over!

On our way out of town we stopped for lunch and enjoyed some great fried fish.

Before we crossed back over into Texas we stopped at a casino. It was a fun way to break up the drive. 


Today is our one-year anniversary!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looking out the window to this view is so relaxing. I think it was in the 60's this morning. Waking up without an alarm clock and sharing breakfast in the early sunshine on our patio was just amazing.

Today we went to a local winery and browsed around some of the local shops for most of the afternoon.

We ended the night by enjoying the cool breeze outside and grilling salmon & corn on the cob.


Our big plans for today included a canoe trip down Mount Fork River. 

It was a lot of fun and I can't believe we never tipped over.

Oddly enough we had some friends who happened to be vacationing in Broken Bow, so we met them for dinner tonight. Oklahoma Mexican food is nowhere near as good as Texas Mexican food, believe it or not. The giant blue giraffe was a nice touch though.


We both took a vacation day today and headed to Broken Bow, OK for our Anniversary Weekend.

Driving Dino accompanies us on all our road trips.


Here is our cabin, along with a hot tub. Nice.

We're kicking off anniversary weekend with fondue date night!


There was a food truck festival in Dallas this weekend and it sounded like fun, so we thought we'd check it out. The lines were ridiculous and it was super hot out so we ended up going to Genghis Grill across the street. Oh well. 


We went to go see Handsome Furs tonight. They always put on a good show. 


Trey's new laptop came in today. It's shiny. He's pretty excited. 


We do quesadillas right.

So we found the best Thai place in Dallas. It's called Best Thai.


Every weekend our local PetCo hosts "Kittenpalooza" where they have lots of kitties for adoption. We go every so often and we play with all the kittens. For the last 2 weeks they have had this adorable calico kitty who purrs when you look at her and she's the silkiest kitty ever. If we didn't already have 2 cats we would've brought her home today. Adopt!!! 


Our good friend Jesse just moved to Dallas, right down the street from us. We had a nice little house warming Mario Kart party at his new place.

Sushi night with friends!


Today the Angelika theater celebrated their anniversary by showing free movies all day with 5 cent popcorn and sodas. 


This summer has been ridiculously hot. I'm ready for fall.


I love the Dallas World Aquarium! 


My parents came to visit this weekend and today we went to the Fort Worth Stockyards. It was quite the cow-town, not that I expected anything different.


It's the little things that make me smile.

Steel-toed boot shopping! Later this week I'm going on a field trip with a group from work to tour a few of our DFW plants. I can't go without safety shoes!


We stopped by Souper Salad while running errands today. Nothing special, just a good lunch. It shut down permanently the following week. Oh well...


Happy 4th of July, everyone! I made this picture in MS Paint. I'm not sure why, just for funzies I guess.

For 4th of July weekend we went to Austin and went camping at Lake Travis with a bunch of our friends. It was hot out, but we had a lot of fun anyways. The park is always pretty, even in the middle of a drought. 


I wish every day was frozen yogurt day. Mmmmmm...
