Tuesday Date Nights

Robert and I have been enjoying some lovely Tuesday night evenings together the last few weeks. I just love getting texts from him at work that say "will you go out on a date with me tonight?"... isn't he so sweet! But Tuesdays have become the one night a week that we both dedicate to studying together over coffee- he studies his lesson for the wednesday night youth meeting and I study for school (b/c yes I'm still tied down by the chains of academics until I take the licensure test in Jan or Feb). I just love Tuesdays :) Especially becuase they remind me of when Robert and I were dating... you know the whole making eyes at each other, giggling together, and stealing sweet kisses... these are the memories I look forward to each week. So survive through the Mondays and rejoice for Tuesdays or whatever day is special for you... and if you dread all days I recommend you try to find at least one night to do something special.

Happy Tuesdays everyone!

I love Game Nights!

I think one of mine and Robert's favorite past-times has been game nights. Call us the social butterflies or whatever, but we love to have people over or just be anywhere people are playing games! This weekend we got to enjoy 2... yes not 1... 2 game nights!

Friday night we went over to my parents house with lots of family and played multiple hours of games... I mean we were over there till after midnight and we started at 6 o'clock! The fun never ends... and not to mention that my competitive side comes out when we play pictionary (my team won :) and CLUE (the best game ever invented! Even though I didn't win). My sister-in-law and I even decided to sport the side-ponytail because our hair is long enough to pull it off.
Then Saturday night we had our youth group over to partake in another round of exciting games, although this time it was at our house and consisted of alot of Wii games, football, skateboarding, monopoly, and tons of FOOD! We were a little worried at first about feeding hungry teenagers, but then one of them brought over 4 pizzas from Dino's Pizza... yum... and the rest of them poured in with a multitude of snack time treats. We had enough to feed a football team! Regardless of the mountain of snacks, it was a great bonding time for everyone and I know we heard some people admit to having a good time. Can't wait to do it again!

What is your favorite board game?

Here Comes A Cold Front!

I'm excited for some colder weather that is on its way right now! I hate really cold weather, but the 70's and 60's are my favorite. Plus, colder weather just puts me in the mood for my favorite warm coffee drinks (hazlenut late and hazlenut hot chocolate and caramel macchiatto... yummm!). But first I'm going on a walk with my dad tonight... just daddy-daughter time... I love my relationship with my dad and its so great that we live about 1/4 mile away from each other.

And just for fun, here are some pictures from a weekend trip we took in August for one of my classmates weddings in San Angelo... I got to have some awesome fun with some great girls... and a very handsome man :) Hope you all have a great week!

Oh how I love him :)

My PT girls!

Happy Faces

Robert and I have gotten to spend some great moments with family the last few weeks and I wanted to share some very pretty smiling faces with you:

MB is getting so big!

J was playing lawn darts

Me and M and A... and you will notice something odd in the background...some creepy guy in the tree, we couldn't figure out what he was doing, but he made it in the picture...

The three sister-in-laws

I tried to get the girls spinning in front of the sign...

I just love getting to see these kids grow up and I'm proud to say we will be welcoming in a new nephew in December!

Tonight Robert is watching a football game with some guys from church and I am hitting up the chick flicks, kettle corn, and my PT books (yes I do have some studying I have to do sadly... it has been much neglected). Hope you are having a great Saturday night!

Tortilla Time!

Sunday evening our church had a wonderful Mexican Celebration! In case you didn't know, our church is bilingual...we have one service in English and another service in Spanish, then every few weeks we have a joint service... it is awesome!! I love getting to see two different cultures and languages come together worshiping the Lord, plus I expand on my limited Spanish knowledge every Sunday :) So for our Mexican Celebration one of the ladies in the church taught my sister-in-law and I how to make homemade tortillas... can I say YUM! It was super fun too, especially because we didn't use any measuring cups or anything (its better that way!). And we got an "A" rating from the rest of the church crew, so that was a nice feeling.
To top it off, tonight my parents came over for dinner and I decided to use my new talent to make tortillas for them so we could have fajitas. I think I'll get better everytime, but they were mighty tasty! If you would like to learn I would love to teach!! Hope you all enjoy your week everyone!

Time of my life

Ok blogging world... I was recently informed that I have been very lacking in my postings and I sincerely apologize! (thanks body-buddy!) The reasons for my absence are nothing, but smiles... I've been having the time of my life! Besides the fact that we now only have one computer between the two of us... which may not seem like a big deal to some people,but for two very independent computer happy people this is a problem... but besides that slowing down my occasional posts Robert and I have been having alot of fun! We've been quite busy, but the good news is I have lots of pictures of our adventures. I can't remember if I wrote this or not, but Robert and I have become the youth pastors at our church...and we have some great teens! We've had some experiences already and I'm so glad that God has lead us to this position in this church b/c not only was the church in need of someone to fill this position, but its been good for my heart. Those kids have so much heart and I can't wait to share with you more of our journey in this area... pray for us!
Also, we had a garage sale to release some things from our possession... and to signify our official new beginning... in a new place, together. I know I bring this up alot, but multiple (like 7) years apart on and off really takes its toll on a relationship... but we've been taking advantage of this new beginning and discovering all over why we love each other and how God has blessed us beyond belief! For instance, tonight I accompanied Robert back up to the "shop" (his workplace, its eaiser to say this than the real name) so he could finish some work things... we made it a date really because we were laughing the whole way up there, most of the time we were there, and the whole trip back. I just love his sense of humor and that we can be completely silly with each other and its just perfect.
So sorry for my forgetfulness to snatch the computer from Rob and post, but I promise some exciting new things are coming and we're just going to keep exploring our world of happy bliss :)
