30-Before-30: Go Ice Skating

My 30-Before-30 list is underway! We visited the Stars Center in McKinney last weekend and skated for the first time in years. It was fun and cold - Matt was happy to be back on the ice, I was happy I didn't fall down. :)
1 down, 29 to go...

12/52 Photowalks: Bouquet



My sister's flowers from her bridal photo shoot at the Farmers Branch Historical Park. We got some great shots and Maggie's dress is beautiful. I'll have to share more after the wedding - less than 3 months to go!

9/52 Photowalks: Questions for the Congressman



We had a special day last Friday when our local U.S. representative Congressman Sam Johnson stopped by the library to read House Mouse, Senate Mouse to our 4th and 5th grade. I was impressed by Johnson; he was an inspiring speaker and had an unexpected great sense of humor too.

Happy Birthday Cherie!

Roommates reunited a few weeks ago when Megan and I took a last minute trip to Austin to celebrate Cherie's 30th birthday. We had fun shopping, exploring town, and spending time with Cherie's mom and her boyfriend David.

This is a trip we took back back in 2008 too. This time we enjoyed food at the giant Whole Food downtown and Maria Maria (good chips and salsa, stay away from the seafood guacamole) and visited some fun places on West 6th.

This was my 2nd of at least 5 trips I'm taking to Austin this year - that's a record for me. I was there for the Bookfest in October and am going again twice for Maggie's wedding events and another time for a library meeting. Good thing I like Austin. :)
