I Will Never Take This Camping

January 23, 2009

I never really understood why Nalgene bottles were so cool, the lids are so awkward since they’re attached to the bottle, and they are always too big around to grip with one hand (especially if there’s condensation)  I guess all of that trouble is worth it in order for people to think that you are outdoorsy, like mountain climbing, play hacky sack and eat organic…whatever.

Made me laugh. Thank you Onion.


wolf pen + sunshine + sara bareilles = love

I just got back from walking the trails in Wolf Pen Creek, I absolutely love living near this area.  Not only do I have a great view of the trees and the creek from my bedroom window but I can go for a nice walk through the park without driving to get to it.

Today, there were a multitude of people and their kids and/or pets walking around, throwing a frisbee, and enjoying the sunshine.  It makes me so happy to see this space being utilized by the community.  I saw one guy on a skateboard with his dog pulling him down the sidewalk, I also saw a lady walking with a huge macaw parrot perched on her arm…things like that make me smile.

Top all that off with my ipod and some Sara Bareilles…what a great walk.

We set a date!

Mark and I will be married on September 19, 2009 at Tenroc Ranch in Salado, TX.

I’m so excited to finally have made a concrete decision, all of the countless hours spent online looking for a place has paid off.  Though Mark and I both loved Kindred Oaks in Georgetown, we decided to go with something a little closer to Rogers to make things easier when the big day rolls around.  Tenroc is just outside of Salado which is about 10 minutes south of Belton on I-35.  The whole ranch is absolutely beautiful with lots of stone and cactus everywhere.  It’s just country enough for the style of wedding that we want without being too over the top.  The ceremony will be held outside along a small creek that runs through the property; then the reception will be inside the Sirena facility.
