Drew and I got season tickets AGAIN, we just cannot stay away from our beloved Aggies! Here are some pictures from the past couple games.

Getting ready for our first game of the season...Aggie band march in
Tailgating with some great friends; Terri and Nikki

The view from our seats, sorry it is of Aggie bottoms.

Brandon and Kristi tailgating...we forgive Brandon for his heathen ways!

We got to see our friends the Cheshier's before the was great to see them and they had pre-game sidelilne passes. (We almost got run over by Jeff Fuller taking this picture)

Starting to get organized...

I LOVE food, I mean LOVE it! If you look at my sites I love, you will see that they are all food blogs...I'm freakishly obsessed! So I look at these sites all the time and ALWAYS see recipes that sound good, so I print them out. For a long time I have had pages of recipes floating around in my house. Well...not any more, they have finally been contained! This last weekend I organized them by course (appetizer, salad, soup, main course, sides, drinks, dessert, and breakfast), tabbed them, and put them in a binder and voila!

I remember

I remember getting ready for school that Tuesday morning. I was looking in the mirror putting on makeup when I got a call from my friend saying that a plan had crashed into the World Trade Center. I will never forget that day and how our country united over this tragedy. Thank you to the men and women in our community who answered the call, and thank you to the men and women who daily fight for our freedom. Thank you for serving us so proudly! God bless America!

Game Night and Good Friends

Last night we had some of our life group friends over for a game night. We had a great time with lots of laughter. We played the game Loaded Questions and some CRAZY answers definitely came out. I'm sure we will be getting together for another game night soon! I really love the couples in our life group, we are finally feeling connected and we again have friends to hang out with on the weekends (it was a hard move from College Station).

The girls (we WON)! Mindy, me, Amber, and Kara

Ryan was our crazy photographer taking "unique" pictures of the guys. Surprisingly Kain did not make it into any of the pictures.

Close up of Jarke, looking a little crazed (maybe it was the recent loss to the women)!

Thanks for all the special pictures Ryan!

Bathroom RE model

A couple weeks ago Drew and I remodeled our guest bathroom...and we think it turned out great. Drew told me it turned out exactly the way he had planned, yay!



Drew pulled everything out including the yucky linoleum and added nice new tile.


We picked up a new vanity and mirror from home depot, it is smaller than the old one and makes the bathroom look so much bigger.

Drew also installed wainscoting, new base boards, and trim. I helped paint it shiny white.

Close up of the nicely installed tile...thanks for your hard work Drew!

Delicious birthday dinner

For Drew's birthday dinner, I made PW's chicken fried steak and creamy mashed potatoes

Making chicken fried steak is messy, not just breading it but man the oil got EVERYWHERE!

For dinner I made chicken fried steak, creamy mashed potatoes, and fried okra...Drew LOVED it!
For dessert I made Mikey's creamy peanut butter pie recipe
I did just as Jennie said, "make a peanut butter pie this Friday and share it with someone you love. Then hug them like there's no tomorrow because today is the only guarantee we can count on."
I doesn't look very pretty, but it tasted yummy...I tried to melt peanut butter chips to put on top, but they don't melt like chocolate does.
Drew LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the peanut butter pie...anything with peanut butter in it is his favorite.
