A little update from "The Newlyweds"

Brad and I are still working on the house. I will probably post some pictures of some of the renovations that we have done so far...there is still a lot of work that we want to do, but we are getting it done a little at a time. For the past 8 weeks, I have been working at a law office in town. I have really enjoyed it, but unfortunately this week is my last week. I am not sure what I am going to do next, but I am looking forward to the challenge of finding something else. Brad is currently working with his dad in Yorktown, but I know that God has something great in store for him (and me of course). So for now, we are just enjoying the opportunities that have come our way, and we are biding our time. On to a lighter subject...Sasha went to the groomers. We were not overly please with the results but it is something different for the summer. Our poor little baby was getting too hot in the Texas Heat! Anyway, when I picked her up, I wasn't even sure that it was my dog that they were handing me. Poor Sasha...but like any bad haircut, it will grow back!!

BTC Graduation Party

We had the graduates from our church a party this weekend. It was really nice, and I think everyone had a good time! It was really nice getting to see Shalaine...there was plenty of time at the party to talk! Congrats Grads!!

Cory's Camo Celebration

On Saturday some friends of our family threw a going away party for their son Cory. I have know him since he was a baby so of course Brad and I had to go! He is moving to Alaska to work on an hunting and fishing guide boat so he will be gone for a while. So, they decided that a celebrating was in order to get him out of here in style. The theme for the party was camo, and almost everyone who showed up, dressed the part. The cake was really cute...Shana (Cory's mom) made it, and it was delicious too! I know that Cory is going to come back with a ton of stories so I can't wait until he gets back. I think he is going to set up a blog so that he can share pictures and stories while he is gone...when I get this info I will post it in case you are interested! It was a really fun party, and I enjoyed getting to spend the afternoon with friends and family!

Fogo de Chao

On May 30, 2009, Brad and I went to a graduation party for Jayci at a restaurant called Fogo de Chao in Downtown Houston. This place was AWESOME! It is a Brazilian restaurant so I wasn't sure what to expect, but the food was incredible. After you are seated, the waiter explains the "rules" of the restaurant to you party. There is a salad bar that you can go and graze at to your heart's content....and then there is the meat... but first you need to know the rules. You have a card that has a red side and a green side. When the card is on the red side that means, "No meat for me right now." BUT when you flip it to the green side the waiters circle the restaurant bringing these slabs of different cuts of meat (Parmesan pork tenderloin, bacon wrapped fillet Mignon, lamb, prime sirloin, rib eye, pork ribs, bacon wrapped chicken, and pork sausages) and if they see that your card is on green they will ask you if you want some of whatever they are carrying...then they just cut some off onto your plate. The way that I am describing it makes it sound kind of gross, but it is a very elegant and fun atmosphere. Best of all, after you have stuffed yourself to the brim with all of these delicious foods, they come by and ask for your dessert order!! These I am unable to describe in words, but they were truly decadent! Jayci was gorgeous as usual, and a lot of her friends and family showed up to celebrate with her! Brad and I had a great time, and I took some pictures for you all to see! I think that we may take my dad there for Father's Day...need to check on reservations! Anyway...
