First Year Anniversary!

Creme Brulee with Happy Anniversary in Hawaiian

I have something to blog about! We will be married one year March 7th.
We decided to take a little anniversary trip to Dallas Friday, so we made reservations at the Renaissance and had a very nice room with a pretty view of the Dallas skyline.

For one of our wedding presents we received a gift certificate at Roy's so we took advantage of that gift and had a wonderful meal. Our table was decorated with tiny hearts and when we opened the menu there was a congratulatory message. Our meal was simply delicious and the service was excellent.

After dinner we went to see Phantom of the Opera at Fair Park. The acting was great and the music beautiful!

Saturday morning we enjoyed breakfast at a The Breadwinners (per recommendation of Danielle & Mike). Most delectable. We had Leo's special-- eggs with ham, bacon, cheese, tomatoes and Hollandaise sauce and a yummy Belgiam waffle.

Next, it was off to look at hundreds of granite slabs...for our new house. I have never seen so many varieties of granite and marble. Absolutely amazing! We found two that we especially like for our kitchen island . (sorry no pictures) I think we will probably have to make another trip... very overwhelming!
After that we met Bryson and Colton for lunch at Razoo's....yes, we had a very nice trip!

Is that snow?

Well, of all things Waco got snow! It was beautiful...starting about 5:30 am and has continued all day (with some melting). Here are a few pics I took today and then some are before the snow of our construction project.

Under Construction!

Les and I have a new project! OUR first home. Here are a few pictures...the rain is already slowing down our progress, but hopefully the framers will begin this week.

Can You Believe I'm Back?!

Well, it's been such a long time since I've blogged, I wonder if anyone will even check to see if I'm active!

Everyone knows about our wonderful, excitement on January 16th, so I'm posting a few of my favorite pictures. Enjoy!

Day in Austin

After getting home Monday night, Les from Naples and me from Plano, Tuesday we had to make a quick trip to Bergstrom Airport in Austin to pick up Les' luggage that he couldn't retrieve at DFW. So, why not make it a fun trip! We had lunch at Pappadeaux's and then did a little shopping, a real neat appliance store with all those wonderful commercial ranges, then to Nordstrom's Rack, Whole Foods and then we topped it off at The Oasis on Lake Travis.

It was a beautiful day and the evening was so pleasant sitting on the patio, sipping wine and overlooking the lake. Enjoy my pictures!

Weekend @ Fredericksburg

Les and I decided to take a little trip to Fredericksburg and enjoy the sites. We didn't realize it was "Trade Days" and a big wedding in town, so we didn't make reservations. The first night we stayed where we could find a room and the next night we had our choice.

We spent Saturday with Larry & Susie Lardy from Kerrville and we had such a fun time starting with breakfast at a German bakery and then on to shopping. I purchased a beautiful urn (No, not Grecian) for our new house--when that happens. We mostly "looked" at shops-one an art gallery where we could go outside and see the outdoor art of different designers. (This is the shop where I dropped my camera and no more pictures!)

That afternoon the Lardy's gifted us with tickets to a local performance of music, comedy and impersonations. It was a great show! After that we took them to dinner at a restaurant that was formerly a cotton gin. Wonderful food! (no pictures)
Oh, I didn't mention the wildseed farm...that was interesting and beautiful plants, I didn't buy any seeds but I did buy some jelly/jam.

Sunday we went to Enchanted Rock and enjoyed our drive seeing wildlife along the way. Then back to Waco via Marble Falls which is such a quaint town. We ate outside on the river and it was very scenic. Lots of fun and few pictures :(
