Busy Bee

I have been working so much lately! It's been good though considering my job can be inconsistent at times. The bigger checks are always nice, even though I haven't been caught up on sleep for sometime now. My boss will be out of town all of next week, and I'm taking on 4 events and a normal client, AND I'm starting to cook for my first very own weekly client, aside from my real job. I will be cooking mostly every day all day next week, and when I'm not doing that, I'll be grocery shopping, or making deliveries out to Lakeway.

Tomorrow night I'm taking Chris out on a date to dinner at Cibo's and to see "Ratatouille."

Marlow's Half Birthday

Yesterday Marls turned 6 months. We took him to do his favoite thing...hike and swim at the Greenbelt. He had some filet mignon for dinner, and we also stopped to get him a cup of ice cream on the way home.

I Like To Recap

Quick Recap of Recent Activities:

1. Good friends, Dick and Sandi Butler, were in town last week. I met them for dinner at Z'Tejas and we got to catch up. I saw them last around Christmastime, but it always feels extra special to have friends come from Indiana. They were in Austin for a wedding.

2. Our great friend and a talented carpenter, Curtis, made us two bookshelves for our office. We are going to stain and finish them to be the same color as the desk. They look great and will be the last touches on that room! Finally to get the books off the floor!

3. Kenny Chesney concert! We tailgated beforehand with good friends, Casey and Megan, and enjoyed ourselves despite a major down pour of rain all throughout the concert. Sugarland and Taylor Swift opened!

4. We had a little dinner party last night with our Ford friends. I cooked and we ate. It was fun. They also brought their cute poodles over for Marlow to play with, and that he did.

5. I've been working a TON lately. It's either feast or famine with my job lately, and right now it's Thanksgiving.

Marlow and Chihuahua

This is the sweet face I returned to from our vacation!

And I found this while hiking on the Greenbelt this afternoon.

Hilton Head

What a week! We packed in a lot, but had plenty of time for relaxation, sleeping in, and just plain fun. We stayed at a condo with Chris's parents and his sister and her husband. (We left Marlow with friends in Austin while we were gone. We missed him a lot!)

Highlights from the trip:

- seeing wildlife; lots of crocodiles, blue herons, pelicans, seagulls, dolphins, butterflies, racoons, squirrels, and frogs
- the beach! laying out, people-watching, playing in the ocean
- visiting Ft. Jackson, where I went to Basic Training exactly 5 years ago
- fresh seafood
- watching a sunrise on the beach
- celebrating our 2nd anniversary

Lots of pictures below.

June 4th was our anniversary.

This was the infantry division I was in while in the Army at Fort Jackson.

Goofiest picture of the century!

What a goofball!
