love day is coming

hi. valentine's day is coming. I couldn't be more thrilled. We saw this setting at Pottery Barn cute.

well, I am sure I could, but...I think it is really fun to make valentines and enjoy pink and red more. Also, this is one time of the year that making and drawing hearts aren't lame.

Vintage Planes

love that.

on our excursion yesterday, we went to the northstar mall, as aaron put that cute picture on the blog of the HUGE cowboy boots. It is a super fancy mall. Anyway, we went into Pottery Barn, don't go in there if you are thinking about having kids. :) ha. Aaron was playing with all of these neat block toys that they have, I decided our little boy's room will be in rocket or airplane theme....and I know, we could never really afford all that they had displayed, but it is fun to think about. Aaron, of course, thinks that we will have a bunch of boys and we'll name all of them Aaron. That is sick. He says sometimes, "when we all all of our little aaron's running around..." and I say, "you can dream, buddy, but that is as far as it will go."

Do you know that George Foreman has, in fact, done this? Yeah. Sick. I mean, wow. What is his wife thinking? Allowing the madness to happen? Even his daughters carry his name for example, one of his daughters is Freeda George Foreman. wow. lucky. it won't be happening in our case.

anyway, aaron is at a primary board meeting and I am baking a two layer chocolate cake. They had some amazing desserts at the Cheesecake Factory, but we were wayyy too full, so I decided I would make a cake here this weekend instead.

Get excited. Thanks to Whitney, I have a pan set that she gave us for our wedding, and it has two cute little 9" circle pans. AND! I have a cake stand that I am going to display it on. wow. If it looks good enough, i will post it on this thing. cross your fingers.

i will too.

OH! real quick, i just wanted to tell you that aaron and I went to the stake adult dance last, who knew that dances with tons of moms and dads could be so fun. It was a ton of fun, and Lyssa Terry Zimmerman went with her husband and we went with Kemy and was really fun. I forgot how much I LOVE to dance. Aaron was such a GREAT sport. 10 bonus points for him.

Anyway, I want to plan another dance party soon. It could be kind of lame just at our house, but that might be the only venue available. We'll see. I'll let you know. Oh, and you are all invited. Just swing on over to texas, okay?

good. it's a date.

brothers and sisters of the world

Hi y'all.

Melissa and I had a really great day. We did so much fun stuff. We had a blast. It was great.

We went to Dillard's and returned some pants melissa bought for me around... beginning of december? The store was nice and let us return them. THAt was so fun!

Melissa then went to look for some shoes for work. I think that is her favorite hobby since we moved here. She stands on her feet all day long so our life goal now is to find the most comfortable shoes ever. And they have to pass the "look awesome" test. Plus, they can't be flip-flops because that is not very classy.

We found some awesome Crocs:
and we also found out they can go in water! YEAH! (shoe purchase is awaiting approval from melissa's boss)

then we had a really great time driving to Northstar Mall
Oh, and I also almost forgot... we went to the container store. Man oh man boy howdy. If there is something in the world you can think of... a shoe, basketball, bug, lettuce, cold cereal... this store has thought of a storage solution!

Then we had so much of a good time heading over to The Cheesecake Factory. It was so delicious we couldn't help but have a really good time.

We were sitting next to a guy that was wearing a cowboy hat. I think he was a cowboy. We love texas.

Then we had some more fun driving by the airport (well, i had fun watching the planes and melissa had fun looking at some paper/supply/hangy stuff store that was by the airport).

We tried to get lost again as we drove home. But this time we made it without driving to the southside of town. If you don't know about the southside, last night we tried to go to a spurs game and ended up... well. really lost. We got to the game just as the halftime show was starting (at least we didn't miss the dancers at half time! OUCH... melissa just slapped me belly.)

OK. peace out.

we're iced in...

Well, today work is cancelled and so is the dental school...and everything else.

There are major ice storms today and it is slick slick slick.

So, I just want to say this...I have tried 3 times...count them...3 times, to update the blog. You see, I have two blogs. One for my future "business venture" and one for aaron and me, and I kept posting our new year's stuff on the wrong blog. It was extremely frustrating and I gave up blogging for a while.

But, so all of my efforts won't be in vain, I will give you a link to my other blog and you can see the post I made at the beginning of January. We have a few shots of the Christmas break on there too. So, get excited.

Yesterday there was no school for aaron because of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. And now, today no school again. For the past two nights we have partied it up with our friends the Bates and the Neilsens. We watched the 24 season premiere and then conclusion of the premier last night, and then because we found out no one had to go to work or school, we watched S.W.A.T. and ate brownies. It was funny. No, really it was so TENSE. I had the worst headache as we were coming home. I can't handle that much drama in one night.

So, what is on the docket for today? Probably some Rummikub, Electronic Catch Phrase (two new presents we got for Christmas) is really funny to play Catch Phrase with the two of us. We've played it a bunch. movies? trying to see which neighbors have different seasons of 24 ? Maybe. We shall see.
