Happenings Lately

More like happenings all summer! I have been so busy this summer with work, family and just having a good time that I have made no time to update my blog.

First and foremost, I got a NEW CAR! This has been many years in the making. I started thinking about getting a new car four years ago, started saving three years ago, started searching (seriously) two years ago and just a few months ago, bought my first new car. It was well worth the wait.
Just a heads up, I will probably have a whole separate blog post for my old car before we sell it. It has been a part of my life for the past 10 years, so it deserves a little recognition.

Part of my lack of blogging has been due to how busy I have been at work. The good news is, it paid off. I got a promotion! It feels so good to be recognized and rewarded for for the hard work you put in. I am excited to see what lies ahead for my career.

I finally reunited with my college roommates and of course good friends.
We met in Austin, TX and had a blast catching-up...and eating cupcakes.
I miss these girls.

July 25 Jesse and I celebrated our three-year wedding anniversary. I can't believe it has been three years already and yet there are so many more to go.
We went to Taste of Texas for a nice steak dinner, yum.

Continuing our tradition...
I received Toy Story 3.

Jesse got a Three Musketeers candy bar, a Three Stooges DVD and a three pack of gum. Not to mention there were three gifts : )

In September my parents came to visit.
Since the game wasn't on TV, Jesse somehow rigged it to where we could watch the OSU game on a borrowed ipad. It worked pretty good. 

Dad and Jesse went to the gun range, while mom and I went shopping.

And we went the to Museum of Natural Science.

 We did several other things, all making it a fun-filled weekend.
 Two weekends ago we took a very relaxing trip to the lake with friends.
Sitting on the dock, watching the sunset and talking with friends was the perfect, relaxing weekend!

Too bad our friends did not want to participate in the photo. Thanks Matt, Katie and Charlotte for such a good time.
Well, that's what you missed. Hopefully I don't let fall pass me before I do another update.
