Holiday Weekend Update - Late!

First, here is a photo of the beautiful flowers Amy sent me for my Birthday.  I said I would post a pic, and never got around to it. 

This past weekend was nice.  I really needed the extra day off.  I didn't do anything really exciting, but I did sleep late, see a movie and visit with family. 

Friday night - I watched the Baylor Bears beat TCU.  It was a great game.  I'll be honest in saying that I haven't always been a big sports fan.  But in the past couple of years I have learned to enjoy watching Baylor Football and Basketball on TV.  I'm not big on going to Football games in person.  I have a pretty good reason for this, but that's another blog post.  However, I think I've worked through my issues, and might be up to making a game this season.  We'll see.  Besides the game, Waco is a pretty fun weekend trip. There's good shopping on Austin Street, The Dr. Pepper Museum and I kind of need to stock up on some new Baylor stuff (T- Shirts, Car Decal, etc.) - I'm sure Beau would love to visit the Bear Pit and see the Bears.  I'll have to teach how to Sic'em.

I saw the movie, Seven Days in Utopia.  It was a great movie with a good message.  It was a very clean family movie - refreshing in this day and age.  As a Bonus, it stars Robert Duvall.  I have been a fan of his work for years.  The Apostle is one of my favorite movies.  It also has a great message.  I highly recommend both movies. 

 I also met up with Steffi, Tad and Beau.  We went on to  rendezvous with the Rents where they took Beau home for the week.  I know they are having a blast.

Random news:  I bought a new car last month. I don't think I ever posted about it.  I got a 2011 Hyundai, Santa Fe - Limited in Espresso.  I call her Coco because she's Chic - and brown.

Blog Update!

It's Labor Day!  Time for a little R&R.

I've been needing to update the blog for a while now, but I just never got around to it.  I decided to add a little Fall Decor- Wishful thinking, I guess.  I also updated my blog list and email link.  It's a holiday weekend and I'm staying in Tyler to catch up on rest and stuff around the house.  Maybe I'll get the home office unpacked.  It's the only room I haven't gotten settled since the move. If I finish getting everything in place, I'll finally post the promised pictures of the apartment.  Sorry it's taking me so long.

Enjoy the long weekend!
