oh, Houston

Because I have been in Houston more than a year (and the cool weather this morning had me all sorts of weepy eyed rememering a year ago), I thought I would share a few of the things I have loved/or not loved about this new city.  I never thought I would find myself living in Houston, but for now, it's perfect!

1. During the time we were engaged and I lived alone in Houston, I would go every Friday night to target to pick out dinner.  I would spend all day looking forward to and planning this momentous event.  all I bought was dinner, yes.  I couldn't afford anything else.  well, maybe I would buy a 1.19 nail polish. maybe. 

2. When I got to Houston, I was bound and determined to learn my way around quickly.  I had the GPS, but I'm pretty sure that thing makes me dumb.  So I used it for a week, and then only took it out in emergencies.  I have a desire to know maps like my dad.  not there  yet.  Houston's a little bigger than Fort Worth.  I still only use GPS in emergencies.

3. I used to be real terrified of my boss.  Like, almost pee your pants scared.  Now, we joke and laugh and argue and bicker and the new employee asks "why are you guys always mad at each other?" to which we laugh.  not mad.  samuel and I went to his house and had dinner with him and his wife Sunday night. we stayed till 2 am.  my boss rocks the socks off your boss.

ummmm....that's enough about Houston. Here are other random thoughts on a Friday.

4. I want bangs.  I want a haircut. but the long hair is staying. I love my long hair, especially more now that pinterest shows me all the fun things I can do with it. like get bangs. 

tell me that's not sexy?

5. Going home this weekend to celebrate.  what? oh you know, Mom and Dad's anniversary, mom's birthday, gran's birthday, papa's 70th birthday.  lots of cake to be eaten.  going to a women's lunchon with mom and gran.  darn my overactive tear ducts, there will by crying.

6. the fall weather and less than 100 degree temps has me all rejuvinated feeling.  so fresh.  so easy to breathe.  so blessed that this change happened. 
7. in my class, the girl that sits next to me is named thaDutchess.  yep.  this is her. I was a real creeper and stood in the back corner of class during break and took a picture.  her hair reminds me of cruella de ville.

happy weekend! I promise to be a better blogger next week.


  1. I had amazing bangs for about a year but it was so much work. I had to have them trimmed every 3 weeks, ughhh. I ended up just growing them out since I am so lazy. :) Happy Friday!!!

  2. Doesn't this cooler weather just make you happy!?

  3. the weather has been so awesome. I'm definitely loving it! have a great weekend :)

  4. I can't get past the chicks name! Is it pronounced like it's written?
