FallsFest and Lily's new dress

Hello to all!! I know its been a while, but its been a busy week or two. Lets see, what have we been doing. I have been really busy at work and when I am not working at work, I am working on my research paper or FallsFest!

That's right! FallsFest is THIS weekend! Everyone come out Friday and Saturday. We have great food, games, music and fun for all. Friday 5-11 and Brazos Stone and Ely Young will be playing and Saturday 11-11, that night Miyagi and 38 Special will be on the stage. Tickets are $6 in advance, $8 at the gate, $10 after 7 and there are 2 day arm bands this year for $10.
If you cant tell I am the publicist this year.

School is moving right along, hopefully I will get to start actually doing research in late Oct or Nov. My Goal is to be finished and ready to do my oral exam by January. Graduation is right around the corner and once I get past research, I will finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Lily and Lexie are still as cute as ever! Lexie has been a stinker though and has torn up our carpet in 2 different areas, so now we have to have 3 rooms replace....booo....bad dog!!
Lily is my fat girl now 7 1/2 lbs, so much for a small yorkie. OH well...

We were at Target last week, and Kyle knows how I love to put Lily in dresses. He wont admit it but he actually picked one out for her. (picture below)
When we got home, I put it on her and I immediately said "ah Kyle, look at her, does it make her butt look big?" I thought he was never going to quit laughing. Sometimes the random blonde thoughts in my head, actually sneak out and they are usually a good laugh....haha.
Lexie even has a ballarina skirt!

How 'bout them Cowboys

I just want to note that I have been a good blogger today...2 in one proud very proud :)
Among with my birthday celebrations this past weekend, we went to the Cowboy Game. Kyle kept telling people it was my bday present, but I started to correct him and tell people it was his early birthday present...hehe

The Stadium was amazing. It looked very futuristic, almost like a space ship from the outside. This place was huge!!! Josh Helmcamp was so excited to go to the game and tail gate, that we were the 4th car in the parking lot at 2pm for tail gating....btw the game started at 7 pm.
But we had a blast!

You gotta love the guys in uniform...especially a Cowboys Uniform

Look how big the screen is

Look at all those people!

It had been a long day of tail gating

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to ME...hehe! My birthday was last Thursday August 27th. Overall it was a pretty good day. My husband took the whole day off, but I only took 1/2. I felt like I had so many errands to run because we were going out of town that Friday (see next post for the Cowboy game) so I really didnt get to relax and I had! No one wants to have class on their birthday. But after class my birthday started to get better. We all went to dinner at Salt and Pepper! It was DELICIOUS! I really must start eating there more often. I had the lamb, some had pork, chicken, steak and Amy had this salmon salad that looked so yummy. I must try it next time I go. Thank you to my wonderful husband and all of my fabulous friends who came to help me celebrate my 27th birthday!

"Golden" Roses from Kyle and a beautiful arrangement from Chloe and my Mom.
I say "golden" b/c I called them yellow roses and Kyle quickly corrected me with golden...haha

I had to lay all of my presents out to admire what I received. My very first card that says "wife" on it and a Shoe Closet gift card from my husband....he knows how to make me happy :) Flower, cute earrings, shirt and necklace and a Dillards gift card. I just love gift cards.

All of us after our yummy dinner! Thank you all so much again for helping me celebrate!
