Catching Up


I broke my foot wayyyyy back in February. well, tons of money and time later, I'm all better!

Most of my year was spent training for my race with LLS. With fundraisers, donations, and a hefty contribution from myself, I was able to raise all of the funds! a whopping $3500 for blood cancer research! It's amazing to think of all the good that will do, along with the over $20mil that was raised from the Nike Women's Marathon. Anyway, I spent many days a week, almost every saturday morning (early, 530am, mind you) working towards this goal. It was exhausting, but also rewarding, and I know I will do it again.

In October my race finally came. Daniel and I traveled with the TEAM to San Francisco. We had so much fun. I have been many years ago with the infamous Revelation chior, but this was Daniel's first time. We spent time going on bus tours, bay tours, shopping, walking around, and enjoying the Nike expo. All in all, we had a wonderful time and can't wait to visit again. It was also a nice to finish the race, get awarded with a Tiffany's necklace/medal, and also get my weekends back! Yes people, I really am alive.


This summer my first grown up job became obsolete. They closed my branch of the company. At first I was in panic mode then I was told I wasn't being let go, thankfully, but I was being transfered to a job far less enjoyable than my current (which was like a living hell). Thankfully I was able to get an interview with a different department of the company. My prayers were answered because they loved me, hired me, and saved me from a life of depression and sales! My current position is great, although not challenging, and often times boring, but I won't complain because it could be worse, a lot worse.


I have managed to make Houston friends!

Brit A: We first met at orientation back on June 1, 2009. I didn't like her at first because she was a little too gung-ho about our crap job. Fast forward to Feb 2010; this is where the friendship began. I had my first fundraising event and sent out invites to all of my work acquaintances, friends, and Daniel's friends. None of my friends or Daniel's friends came, but Brit did. I couldn't believe that she would come when we had barely talked since orientation. That day we made plans to see SATC2 a few months later, and that's when things really took off. OMG, it sounds like a freaking love story. Anyway, we now have Tuesday OTH nights and double date often.

Brit L: Brit and I officially became friends when she married Cole and moved to Houston. I think it's her love for the JoBros that solidified this bond. We usually hang out on couple events, but we have enjoyed a few teen concerts together. She has also introduced me to the wonders of the Harry Potter books (yes, I had seen the movies, but she convinced me to read the books).

*not mine, obviously.

Back in May Kasey & Mathew tied the knot. It was a very hot beautiful outside wedding in east Texas. Kasey wore a delicate vintagey dress and a birdcage vail. She had grown her hair out a bit and wore it in beautiful curls. She was a radiant bride. Matthew wore a suit with suspenders, bow tie, and chucks. The Maids and MOH (me) wore casual strapless lapis dresses with purple peep toe flats. A dress I will actually wear again. the guys wore suit pants with suspenders, ties, and chucks. A cute touch she added was having the guys chucks (all different colors) match the girls toe nails. Mine wore orange. At first I thought Yuck, but it went well with my skin tone. The photogrophy was done by great and talented friend Kara Mercer of Vintage View Studios. Check out the wedding pictures here.
