Day #149 - May 31, 2010 - Memorial Day cookout


John grilled corn, burgers and sausage for us on Memorial Day! YUM! :-P

Day #148 - May 30, 2010 - New bikes :)


Friday night, John and I went and got ourselves new bikes (we also got tennis rackets, but that post to come another day!) We rode Saturday and went again on Sunday and this is me, helmet and all! :) I went on a 12 mile bike ride on Sunday. We went earlier in the morning so it was MUCH easier than in the middle of the day Texas heat!

Day #147 - May 29, 2010 - A cool pool


Saturday afternoon we went on a 7 mile bike ride at the park by our house and afterwards I went and jumped in the neighborhood pool and it felt amazing. It was exactly what I needed after riding for 2 hours in the scorching heat!

Day #146 - May 28, 2010 - Last day!


Friday was the last day of school for me for a week! If I hadn't signed up for summer school it would have been the last day for 2 months... :( But, I did get a week off - pictures to come :) Anyway, no picture related to that, just a happy picture in honor of the last day of work!

Day #145 - May 27, 2010 - Cat Hair


I have started to run out of things to take pictures of so I thought this plate was cute and Oh so true in my house ;) My mom got this for me for Christmas.

Day #144 - May 26, 2010 - SnoCones!


My favorite summer treat: SnoCones! Snocones are something you find on every corner in the DFW area, but not in Houston. When I moved to Houston I was deprived until I found MAM's House of Ice recently in The Heights! This place compares to my favorite place in Ft. Worth and might even be better. This particular one I got is wedding cake flavor with condensed milk! YUMMMMM

Day #143 - May 25, 2010 - Posers


My cats like to pose in nearly the same positions for the camera. I know they are sick of seeing me get "the big black thing" out. I know they wish I'd leave them alone :)

Day #142 - May 24, 2010 - Practicing...


Just practicing shots with the new camera...

Day #141 - May 23, 2010 - Photobooths


Sunday was spent sleeping late and doing nothing... We were exhausted from a long wedding weekend. I think the only thing I did was take a picture of our pictures from the photobooth :) I've been seeing this new trend for a while and always thought it wouldn't be worth the money. But, after attending this wedding with a photobooth, it is oh so worth it! After seeing all the guests have fun with it and the funny pictures that everyone came out with, it is a must have at all weddings! I just loved what we got out of it!

Day #140 - May 22, 2010 - The wedding


Saturday we attended Kevin and Summer's wedding and had a blast dancing at the reception! Everything was set up beautifully at the reception and I have some great pictures which I'm sure a lot of you reading this saw on facebook :) I did catch the bouquet ;) and Dan caught the garter. John says that b/c he didn't catch the garter it cancels out that I caught the bouquet... Sure it does! ;) Maybe one day.........

Day #139 - May 21, 2010 - The rehearsal


John was the best man in Kevin and Summer's wedding this weekend. Friday night we attended the rehearsal and then the rehearsal dinner at Canyon Cafe. The food was very good, so good John wanted to go back the next weekend ;) Anyway this pic is of me and John at the dinner.

Day #138 - May 20, 2010 - An attempt at being creative...


A first attempt at using the black and white and different settings on the camera.

Day #137 - May 19, 2010 - We got it!


We finally got our first DSLR camera - the Nikon D3000. Just wait for all the fun pictures to come!

Day #136 - May 18, 2010 - I'm running out of things to take pictures of! :)


We finally got the house back in order after adding all of my junk from my apt. John has decided he likes my bed better so we've been sleeping in there. The kitties seem to like it too. Both were in bed with us watchin' TV!
I know you can say it, crazy cat lady. :)

Day #135 - May 17, 2010 - Not all hope is lost...


I took the ugly picture the day before and decided to take an actual nice picture for this day. :) Apparently, these plants can't be killed! ;) I think John and I will plant these all the way around for some nice PINK color!

Day #134 - May 16, 2010 - A bed of dead flowers


This Sunday we went to Sarah and Matt's engagement party. And of course, yet again, I didn't take a picture of the actually exciting part of our day. Instead I'm leaving you with an ugly picture of our dead flowers :( There's one lone red flower that blooms occasionally but that's about it. I talked about our flower beds here and of course very few of that is actually living still.

Day #133 - May 15, 2010 - Moving day...


I wish I would have taken a picture of the mess of a house we were living in for several days after the big official move in to John's house from my apt. But instead, I will leave you with another picture of Cotton. Cotton loves this window and as soon as we put the bed upstairs under the window, both cats are up there constantly peeking out at the neighbors ;)

Day #132 - May 14, 2010 - Oscar


I'm not sure how John came up with the name Oscar for this stuffed elephant, but that's it's name and it's Cotton's best friend. I came home and found Cotton just like this and had to snap a picture...

Day #131 - May 13, 2010 - Momma's girl


I'm not sure any words are even needed for this... Pixie resting in a Macy's bag... She is a momma's girl after all!
