Fall 2002- My first semester at A&M. Family came up for their first football game. I forced my brother to wear that shirt!
February 2007- My last semeseter at A&M. You see...at the time, my brother would rather be wearing this shirt. The house was divided! Fast forward two and half years...My brother has ditched the burnt orange and is now one of the newest members of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2013. Austin, I'm so proud of you and super excited to see where the next four years take you! These are the best years of your life...Enjoy it!
"Time travel is the concept of moving between different moments in time in a manner analogous to moving between different points in space, either sending objects backwards in time to a moment before the present, or sending objects forward from the present to the future without the need to experience the intervening period."
Some of you may have seen this famous picture of "Nuts" the Squirrel... Here is our very own squirrel friend, we'll call him "Mr. Nutty". Surprisingly, he let me get very close to take this picture a couple of weekends ago.
Help! My bougainvilleas are sick! I've tried everything from watering less, watering more, shade, sun, insecticide, fertilizer...you name it, I've tried it!
Can someone please tell me how it is possible to go from something so beautiful: ...to this:
in only a matter of two weeks? All the flowers have fallen off and now the leaves are starting to go.
I read up on these beautiful plants before I bought some for our backyard, so I thought I had them all figured out! Boy was I wrong! But one thing is for sure...I'm on a mission. A mission to bring these babies back to life! :)

Nothing beats a relaxing weekend away from the big city hustle & bustle! Here are a few more pictures from this past weekend... Our home-away-from-home for two days! The rocking chairs alone were worth the drive! We definitely need some for our backyard! Friday night we had an amazing dinner at Huisache Grill. Everything from the appetizer down to the last drop of wine was wonderful! We had a few visitors when we returned from dinner.
Saturday afternoon we roamed around downtown New Braunfels and visited a lot of cute shops. Including a few antique shops!
Just outside the city of New Braunfels, Texas thrives a town called "Gruene." One would be hard pressed to miss this town. Although you must travel down a long 2 lane road, follow a few signs and make a couple of turns as dust swirls in your rear view mirror; nestled by the Guadalupe River, you will find Gruene, Texas along with a sign that simply states, "Gently resisting change since 1872."

She said YES!! My very best friend, M, recently got engaged to the sweetest guy, DT! I couldn't be more excited for them!
Yesterday I got a cute, little surprise in the mail...
I was literally jumping up and down when I finally got all the pieces of the puzzle together! Ask D, he was laughing at me! M...I'm honored to be a part of your very special day! I can't wait to see what the future holds for you and DT. You guys deserve the very best!
M gave me this sweet poem in a card on the day we graduated college. She probably doesn't know I still have it...but I love it and will cherish it forever!
