Happy 2nd b-day, Maverick!

Josh stopped by Glamour Dogs this afternoon and picked up this adorable cake to celebrate.

We're taking him to the Bluebonnet Dogpark this afternoon and might even give him some wine!

He's such a great dog. I wish everyone knew what it felt like to have such a loyal friend.

I love you, poochie!

Love, Mommy

Livin the King-size life

Why is it that the weekends always go by so fast? I was commenting tonight to Kate, that I always look forward to the weekend during the week, then they fly by. I'm sure others out there also notice this problem. Can we maybe petition the government to make weekends 3 days? No? Oh well.

I think the biggest thing we had going on was getting our new, King-size bed on Saturday, & spending all week looking forward to getting it. Imagine two 6-foot + people sharing a full-size bed. It was time for an upgrade, & well worth the $$$ spent. I got the call around 11 on Sat. that they'd be here within an hour with the bed, & they lived up to their word. We spent a LOT of time Sat. doing laundry; mostly washing the new sheets (& old sheets, which confuses me, but anyway), & arranging the new bed. I suggest to everyone out there to get a king-size bed. They're awesome, & provide so much room. We just wanted to lay in it, & spent Sat. night watching DVD's in bed. Oh, also ordered Soprano's pizza. Deeee-lish!

First DVD: Juno. Surprisingly wierd, & good. It's sweet, & has a few tear-jerker moments. Second DVD, an old standby in our personal stock: Blow. "Our business here today is cocaine, yes?" I think we made it to the point where George was making trips to Columbia, then we hit the hay. Had a nice visit to church this morning & later this afternoon we took Mavarico to get a pre-birthday haircut. He turns the big 2 tomorrow, & needs to look sharp for all the ladies he's sure to meet at the dogpark tomorrow. Kate & I ran some errands while Mavy had his time at the salon. He looks like such a different dog, considering when he has long hair & short hair. He looks much skinnier & scrawnier when he has short hair, but he's a diva nontheless. We ended the weekend with some good burgers on the grill & Honey Moon beer (from Blue Moon). It's not bad. Might be classified as "good".

So back to work tomorow. I think we're both ready for the honeymoon, to take some time off from work & relax. A vacay is much needed, & these next 3 months can't go by quick enough. It seems I can hear Jamaica calling me every day. But until then, I'll just settle for the weekends, & I'm already looking forward to the next one!

Follow-up by Josh

Yep, what a week & weekend. We always think we have nothing to do as a weekend approaches, then end up being non-stop busy. When I woke up this morning I wasn't even thinking about buying a bed, & look at us now. King size, paid for & to be delivered. Also, if you get a chance check out the Cleburne Times Review online. I sent in an opinion paper on my old high school coach & they printed it in todays paper under the Opinions section. Pretty cool they printed it. Coach Cody, you're the man!

Anyway, I always love the weekend & all the time Kate & I get to spend together (& the whole thing about not having to get up early & go to work). Tomorrow is Monday, & I'm already looking forward to the weekend!

Where did my weekend go?

Phew! This week was exhausting! Josh and I have been actively planning/implementing our wedding. From invitations, info cards and programs to DJs, string trios and straw fans...we've been frantically trying to plan this thing. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful fiance. Josh is so supportive, understanding and, most importantly, opinionated. Instead of sitting back and letting me plan everything, Josh has really been helpful with the planning process. He lets me know what he thinks, and for the most part he always has something beneficial to say.

On Friday, my work sponsored the annual Frisco Relay for Life. My life hasn't been directly affected by this horrible epidemic, so my initial reason for participating was to support my co-workers and be a good employee. At the beginning of the night they had a luminaria ceremony, which turned out to be a very emotional experience; it was so heartfelt, touching and enlightening - it really changed my attitude towards the entire event and I felt honored to be walking every lap around that field. The event ended at 6am Saturday morning. I, however, left around 12:30a because I'm cranky.

On Saturday, we went on a double date with Josh's sister, Emily, and her husband, Aaron. I always love spending time with the RRRRowans; they remind me alot of us and we get along really well. We went to Fireside Pies at the Shops at Legacy; its a yummy coal-fired pizza joint with a great wine list and a killer brownie dessert.

Sunday was spent at church, running errands and buying a bed...oh, no biggie, we just made the biggest purchase to date. I never knew how difficult it would be to buy a mattress. Neither of us have bought one before, so we didn't really know what we were doing. We went to The Dump, picked one out, and that was that! It should be delivered next Saturday, so maybe then we can both experience a good nights sleep. A full size bed for 2 people over 6' is not cool.

Anyways, this weekend has been very eventful and fun. We always have grand plans of relaxing on the weekend, but it never ends up happening. I just think its hard to relax when I love doing things with my future hub! :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
God Bless and remember, "Love each other and life comes easy."

With work and life constantly getting in the way, we figured this was the best way to stay connected to the ones we love.

Let us first say that Kate will probably be the main blogger on this site, but let's all keep our fingers crossed for some of Josh's witticisms and intellectual guidance.

We plan on updating on a weekly basis, although we're fully aware of the "life" factor. We also look forward to sharing photos and cool interactive finds.

So, let us both welcome everyone to our blog and may you enjoy reading as much as enjoy typing!

God bless.
