Ok so many things that have happened since my last detailed blog. I don't count the last one as it was more "picture" centered then actual blog centered. Anyway, I am dividing the blog into three main subsections:
1) the Race (which will discuss something I am getting involved with... which you would know if you check my facebook, 2) Our house.. and some new additions, 3) the fall.. and just general activities which have happened.
So as you can see from my previous blog entry, we have been decorating for the fall. We also have been trying to decorate our kitchen etc. We bought a few things which I really think are cute. We also got this awesome clock from the Portugals which has a bible verse on it.
Also, notice the pumpkin candle holder on the table. I absolutely love this. We bought two that size and two smaller ones. We realy really like them. The candles are the same type as the centerpiece in the dining room.. they really make the house smell good.
We have been crazy crazy busy bees this fall. I have been working a lot ... and every weekend we have had something planned or so it seems. In early September, the Portugals came for a visit. They just stayed for a few days. We went to Old Town Spring and did quite a bit of shopping.. which was pretty fun. We also bought some cowboy hats. (Which will really come in handy at the rodeo next year).
We also have been pretty involved with our bible study at church. We had been going to small groups on tuesday night and then a group bible study at the church on wednesday night. Sadly, that will have to end since I can't get off a 6 that many nights a week (which is really sad). But I will be trying to sing with the worship team coming up.. which should be enjoyable...
Over the summer we went on a camping trip with our bible study and then this last weekend we also went to the Astros game (so now we have been to two Astros games). It was pretty fun... but we left before it was over to avoid the traffic. Ivan has also been going to "guys" lunches once a month with the Bible study.. called "Burger Buddies" . They try out different burger places every time.
So.. *whew* its been a lot. I didn't mention all the work and job stuff because.. ug who wants to hear about that. However, that has made the weekends all that much shorter and tougher. Ivan is also gone this week to MD so it is even worse on me..
In the upcoming weeks we will be hosting a dinner party at our house (this weekend), having a football party on Sunday, then I will have the race, then in a few weeks we will be going to the Renaissance Fair (so we have to get costumes). In November, we have thanksgiving with my parents, the renaissance fair again... then Dickens on the Strand (another dress up event).. and the TSO concert.
Sooooo many things to do. Hopefully all of them will work out and my work wont get in the way. We will see.
Thats enough for now!
