shopping trip!

Today my friend Kelli and I embark on a 4 hr trip to Dallas to stay with her parents before we rise early to head to Canton, Texas, a little town east of Dallas. Kellie, a good friend from San Marcos, was also my wedding planner. She did a fabulous job!! Her husband Jeff was one of Eric's groomsmen as well. We absolutely love spending time with them. We have poker and football nights at their place, and Kelli and I have started doing our own fun girly activities- wreath making, cooking, etc. They also introduced us to The Office, which we are quite fond of.

Canton is known for its massive booths/trade market. Open the first weekend of every month, Canton has everything form decor of all types, furnishings, antiques, crafts, food, clothes, jewelry...everything!, along with their charming B&B's on the outskirts. For those of you who are familiar with Traders Village in Houston, Canton is probably about 10x the size at least. I will post pictures when I get back to show you how massive this place is. I am stoked! I am supposed to be spending our money on "Christmas gifts". We'll see how well I can contain myself!

Happy October Everyone!! Let the festivities begin!

a weekend away from my Baby

At 4:50 Friday afternoon Eric's dad picked him up for a Men's Retreat in New Braunfels. I had been pondering all week on what to do on the weekend to keep from becoming that lonely newlywed who can't go a workday without seeing her man. I had presumed I would watch some Dateline or 20/20 and a chick-flick to start the weekend off. But then I got suckered back onto the internet, and found myself at my sister's blog- Drolet Diaries. :) In an instant I knew this weekend would be great for expounding on Eric's and my first 3 months as newlyweds, and on none other than BLOGSPOT! I've joined in on the Myspace flurry, I've nearly addicted myself to Facebook, so why not divulge more exhilarating memories onto Blogspot?

Thinking up a catchy blog name was my first task. I left that to Eric, hence my reasoning to publish my post today. Eric and I went to Sonic a few weeks ago and were shocked to discover the ever famous Brown Bag Special no longer exists. :( BOO! For those of you who aren't familiar with it, it's 2 #1 sandwiches/ 2 fries/ 2 drinks for $5.99! Tell me that's a steal!
So we're re-creating it, this time as a blog. I'd like to think I'd post a "special" every day, but let's not get too ambitious!
For now, I'd like to stalk everyone else's blog. :D
Happy Wednesday!!
