Current and Former Lubbockites

Remember how sweet Chrome was? I loved that store...
I could hardly ever buy things there though.
They still send me e-mails

Excite! ed!

Going to look at two townhomes tomorrow and it is very likely that one of them WILL be our new home. woo hoo!
this claim is contingent upon many factors that we cannot accurately foresee at this time, but if all events go to plan we have no reason to think that our hearts will be broken again. let's keep our fingers crossed.

Sudden Urge

I had a sudden urge to make a t shirt that said "Soul Sister " on it
today. So I did, using permanent markers and stamps. Probably because
my dad and I have been liking Train's new song.

On my computer this audio does not match up with the video. I can't seem to fix it, it makes it less funny sorry about that.

Prob the Funniest yet, and also I am a huge DORKY GOOF.


I Have Declared Wednesday Dental Day

I'm gonna take extra special care of my teeth on Wednesdays.

Goodbye Cute House

So for those of you who don't know, we had to pass on the cute house we were trying to close on, it turned out the place had some foundation issues and we may have been getting into more than we could handle. After much heartache and tears (mostly on my part) we are looking again...
Hopefully I will be able to tell about the new contender very soon!

You J'in

I got to watch Bill Nye today, except these might some other series
not sure why the name was different. Anyway he was still super nice
and funny. But he is dead now I think, which stinks.

Yes! a Quilt!

I made this out of old sweaters, it is so insanely cozy.

Ash Wednesday

Today marks the beginning of the 40 days leading up to Easter, we call it Lent. During the Lenten season we are called to focus on our spiritual relationship to God and grow in faith. To help focus our minds more on God we make a resolution of some kind, either to sacrifice something you like to do (like eat McDonalds) or add something good and selfless to your life (like make breakfast for your husband). We wear ashes on our foreheads today as an outward sign that says "we believe". We also do not eat meat on Fridays during this time as an extra way to remind us that the season is not about doing exactly what you want to do , when you want to do it, but to focus on a more holy goal. I enjoy this time that is specially prescribed in the Catholic church to work on our Godliness, and therefore, our ability to love like He loves,
without selfishness.

My Prezzy from Paul

He picked out this adorable blazer all by himself, (little did he know it was on the cover of the new Anthropologie catalogue) very nice...

Soooo the weekend

was fun.
We had a nice night Saturday and Meg's party was so good! I helped her out a lot with baking and cooking, we did a lot of that..
A highlight for me was faking the beautiful and poetic quotes of Shakespeare, Herman Wouk and Jane Austen and making up a cliche one to put in the mix and tricking people! It was a fun little game Meg put together involving matching quotes on the back of our name hearts...We got lazy at looking up quotes and I just decided I would make one up.
Paul and I had a lovely Valentine dinner at an adorable and dimly lit little bistro in a downtown Austin (Bess).
Here's some pictures...

so cute of Meggy

there's our guys!
Kelly made the blog!
attempting cute pics, not easy
Their place

New Dresses

The thing is,
I definitely want to practice and become a skilled seamstress, but there is something to be said for cute dresses already made!
Especially when they cost 12 dollars like this pink one.

Subbing was pretty fun, a room full of first graders is a hoot.
We also went by the house again after Paul got off work and it is still looking awesome! So that is exciting...
