The awesome patio bar- BLUE
So beautiful! It does not even feel like you are in Houston. Great location for a wedding or other event!
My 2nd course- Crab Stuffed Shrimp & Marscapone Risotto
Keeping our yearly tradition up!
Celebrated Jen's 30th birthday with friends and dinner!
Her hubby is an AMAZING cook and he cooked us up some stuffed pork chops, grits and a salad. Then he had Nothing Bundt Cakes for dessert. Yummo!
Hubby got a new car!! Whohoo! BUT...I am not allowed to share pictures yet. He is getting the windows tinted tomorrow and possibly new wheels put on so he pretty much threatened my life if I shared pictures before all of that was done. So, I am going to drive his Tahoe for a year or 2 then eventually when that starts having problems I will get something. For now though, I love the Tahoe but need to get used to driving it. I have never owned an SUV or driven one consistently.
That afternoon we had about 12 guys over at our house for an NFL draft party. I helped cook and get ready for the party then I left for several hours so they could have their guy time. I shopped for our upcoming Vegas trip and got my nails and toes done. Then when I got home I pretty much stayed in our bedroom the rest of the night so they could do their own thing. I didn't want to intrude on their "guys only" day ;)
We did a whole lot of nothing. Laid out, swam, read, started planning my Vegas outfits, grilled hamburgers for dinner, drove the new car around... that's about it! Perfect day!
Now I am happy to have a 4 day work week then we head to Vegas on Friday with our friend's Chance & Laura! So excited for a weekend getaway with some of our best friend's and can't wait to go to Vegas for the first time!

Hands down, best peaches ever. They are juicy and full of flavor and last much longer than the ones you would buy in a regular grocery store. I stock up on these every time I go.
#5- Mandarin Orange Chicken
Goes perfect with the brown rice for a quick, week night meal. This is one of our favorite meals these days, especially after a long day of work when I don't feel like cooking sometimes.

Finally, running. I have been off and on been trying to get back into some sort of training schedule the last few months but I always fall off the wagon after a week or 2 and have trouble getting into a routine. I am happy to say that those days are gone and I am finally back into it. Thanks to my lack of training the past 6 months I am back to square one and trying to build the miles again. Since Saturday I have ran 11 miles and I feel better each time I run...minus the insane heat. YAY! So happy to be back!

This was my first "experience" with the whole mustache thing and I have to be honest, I don't get it. BUT regardless, it was fun :)
And this would be my best friend...since we were about 14 years old.
We were out celebrating her 29th birthday!
The whole group @ dinner @ Chi Japanese Restaurant
The most delicious Strawberry Creme Cake!
My husband made the most yummy omelet for me on Sunday morning :)
Sunday night- Christina Perri in concert. She has an amazing voice!
