September 6, 2010
While we were in Houston we stayed with my parents. Rachel is back from China so we got to see her! She made some delicious paninis for us for lunch.

September 5, 2010

Cousin Erin and I went down to Houston for the weekend. We went down to go visit our grandparents, but while we were there we got to see Deebs off to Greece. She will be studying abroad this semester. She is about to go through security in this pic.

September 1, 2010
Leaving work...this is PM by the way. This is becoming a regular occurrence unfortunately...and is the primary reason that I have not been taking pictures every day.

August 31, 2010
My new favorite dinner. This is $2.99 at Market Street. It is all natural (so you can read and pronounce all the ingredients), and it is super yummy. I will be eating more of this.

August 29, 2010
Went through Norman and saw Catherine. Here she is in front of her dorm looking collegiate.

August 28, 2010
This picture is pretty similar to another one that I took not long ago. But I was excited b/c the date of this beverage was my birthday...the actual day of my birth. 12/16/84

August 27, 2010
I just thought this leaf was pretty. Could it mean that fall is just around the corner?

August 24, 2010
I think I was excited about this meal because we got the chicken for free (at Market Street). And potatoes and green beans are dirt cheap...this dinner for two probably cost about $2.00.

August 21, 2010
Gifts from my family from China!

August 20, 2010
Family came back through Dallas on their way back to Houston. Deebs is going to kill me for this picture...she has this amazing talent that I am way too easily amused by. I was trying to capture it in these pictures...and she was not super happy about it. If you can't see it, she is flexing her chin dimple.

I won some stuff at my school! I never win things. I have recently decided to start making use of coupons...conveniently, one of the things I won was a coupon holder.

August 18, 2010
Family came through Dallas. They were on their way to Norman to move Catherine into college! Boomer Sooner!

August 17, 2010
French dip sandwiches.

August 16, 2010
I guess I was about to wash some dishes or something.

August 15, 2010
This is where I officially start missing days...(notice the jump from 8/13 to 8/15).
In this picture I am working on my homework from the Steps study at my church. It is a 16 week class that deals with people's issues (aka sin). By the way, we ALL have sin in our is a good thing that God provides a way for us to know Him through Jesus.

August 13, 2010
Got to see Amy AND Erin today. It was so good to catch up with them! This is in the backyard of Erin's new house.

August 12, 2010

Making a panini.

August 11, 2010

Deborah came into town! Here I am feeding her some milk and cookies.

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

Sorry for the lack of posts. I do have pictures...for most of the days from the past 3 weeks. I just haven't had time to do anything with them! Work has started back and it has been super stressful. I'll post some pictures soon!...

There is something wrong with the flash on my camera. The bottom right corner of this picture is in a shadow. Anyway, we had our last book study meeting and celebrated with some yummy snacks.

Ug. I think I have a pretty good job, but the school year hasn't even started and I'm already stressed about it!

You can't really tell, but Caleb vacuumed the carpet. This is an event worth documenting b/c we hardly ever get around to vacuuming,

Amish friendship bread...made into muffins. Yum.


Today I didn't really forget to take a picture...I just never took a picture. It was actually a pretty eventful day. I ate lunch with a friend from grad school and then met up with Amy at Panera. Later that evening we hung out with some friends for a game night.

Getting ready for the new school year.

I've had these tennis shoes for 4 years and I've been reminiscing about all that these shoes have been through. I bought them right before I went to China in 2006. They were taken on that trip. I had them my last year of college in Norman, OK. They went with me to Dallas when I moved to go to UNT for grad school. They went with me on my honeymoon in Aspen, CO. And of course, all the times that I have attempted working out during the last 4 years. :)

I know this probably isn't a big deal...but I thought it was kind of cool that this sangria I bought was made a week after I was born. Kind of weird to think about I guess.

Hadn't taken a picture and needed to head to bed. I had a training the next morning in Ft. Worth.

Went to Market Street and saw "Israeli melons" on sale. So, I bought one. It was pretty similar to a cantaloupe.

July 31, 2010
On Saturday we headed home. We stopped for dinner at Torchy's Tacos in Dallas.

July 30, 2010
On Friday we went to Fiesta TX.

July 29, 2010
On Thursday we drove to Gruene, TX and went tubing on the Guadeloupe river. Then we drove down to San Antonio. For dinner we ate at Mi Tierra. There were a lot of little Mexican shops around the restaurant. This picture was taken at one of the shops while we were waiting to get into the restaurant.

July 28, 2010
On Wednesday we drove to Pedernales Falls state park and got to hike around for a couple of hours.

July 27, 2010
The cabin that we stayed in down in Wimberly, TX.

July 26, 2010
Packing for our trip.

Whoops. Missed a day. My first day to actually forget to take a picture. I think it's a sign. This blog is on a downward spiral. It may not survive the fall, but we'll see.

July 24, 2010
I am slightly obsessed with sunsets. I took this picture on my phone while stopped at a light. It was so intense. ;)

July 23, 2010
This is why our grocery bill has doubled this past year! Stinkin' organic food. This particular item was organic and fair trade. My conscience got the best of me...I ended up buying it over the cheap generic stuff.

July 22, 2010
Ok so I wore my shane and shane t-shirt today. It just so happens that this shirt is from their album "clean" and has a tooth brushing itself. It also just so happens that I went to the dentist today...not realizing/remembering that I was wearing this shirt. The dentist never said anything about it...but when I realized I had worn it to the dentist I felt like a dork. To make matters worse, I had a cavity! Oh the irony...

July 21, 2010

Taking stuff to CCA.

July 20, 2010
Taking up a new hobby. Our apartment complex has a racket ball court. We are finally getting around to using it, now that we've been here for a year.

July 19, 2010
I spent the night at Cousin Erin's on Sunday. She made me a delicious dinner, then we went and got frozen yogurt and saw Despicable Me. It was a good night with a good cousin. :)

July 18, 2010
We rode up to Tulsa with Caleb's parents and sister. This is a picture from the ride home.

July 17, 201o
While we were in Tulsa, we went to visit some old college friends. Chris was one of Caleb's roommates back in the day. It was good to see them!

July 16, 2010
Caleb and the groom.

July 15, 2010
We went to Tulsa for a wedding. These were at the rehearsal dinner, which happened to be at the Tulsa zoo. They were super cute.

July 14, 2010
My "craft" of the summer. I made a recipe box and recipe cards.

July 13, 2010
On our way out to eat to celebrate Caleb's score on the GMAT. He did great! All his hard work paid off.

July 12, 2010
Made fish tacos. It was my first time to make them and they turned out pretty good.

July 11, 2010
I am proud to say that I haven't killed my herbs yet.

July 10, 2010
I'm trying out different frozen yogurt flavors. I made mango frozen yogurt this time. It was yummy.

July 9, 2010
Cow appreciation day at Chick-fil-A. Free combos for anyone who dresses up like a cow. Caleb was not too excited about wearing the cow shirt...but when he got the most expensive combo meal for free, he decided it might not have been a bad idea after all.

July 8, 2010

Fiesta beef bowls. This is a yummy recipe.

July 7, 2010
No good ideas for a picture today. We went to elder-led prayer at church.

July 6, 2010

Purging. Anyone know of a good organization that I can donate clothes to?

July 5, 2010
Chicken with mango sauce. A recipe from my mom. The lighting is terrible in our apartment!

July 4, 2010
My parents and Catherine came into town for the 4th. It was good to see them!

July 3, 2010

Love it when we actually make the bed.

July 2, 2010

July 1, 2010Cousin Erin's car was in the shop for several days so she had borrowed her mom's convertible. I went with her to pick up her car and take back her mom's car. I got to drive this car back to its home.

June 30, 2010
This is kind of a weird picture. Anyway, I have been trying to get involved up at UNT with helping out with international student events. I gave a ride to some students from Turkey to the house of a professor and was told to make this sign so they could find my car.

June 29, 2010
Cousin Erin's moving day. I went with her to pick up her Uhaul.
