#71 - Wear more dresses / skirts (18/?). Wore my nice jean skirt to work on Thursday.
I accomplished quite a bit around the house this weekend....as well as had some fun.
Friday- Went downtown for The Scabs show at Antone's. This was my first time to visit Antone's. A group of us met at Whiskey bar before hand for a drink, then headed over for FlyJack (the opening show)....half way through that we decided to take a break and play some fooseball at Buffalo Billiards. Around midnight we went back to Antone's to listen to The Scabs. Unfortunately I couldn't stay out late and was home in bed around 1am.
Saturday- Woke up at 5:30am for a softball tourney but was so out of it that I asked to pass on playing and went back to bed. However I was back up around 10am to mow the lawn, weed the flower beds, clean out the garage and then reorganize it. It was so hot outside too! I was sweating like crazy, very sexy let me tell you! Then around 2pm I headed to Hanover's to play some volleyball and then went to a BBQ party. I didn't get home till 10pm and was wiped out! I had wanted to go out dancing but my body fell asleep on me by 11pm.
Sunday- Yet more house work! Mopped the floors, repaired some torn clothes, did all my laundry, cleaned the hot tub and ran a few errands. I'm quite happy with myself for being so productive! To finish off the night I had 2 volleyball games in Pflugerville followed by some Ben & Jerry's icecream. Yummy!

Saturday: Tax free weekend! Malek and I headed over to the Domain for some shopping. I finally used my gift card from my b-day last year to buy my 7 of all Mankind jeans! I'm so excited! I also had a gift card to Banana Republic and bought a new pair of dress slacks and a shirt. I think we arrived back at my house around 5pm and invited Stinson over for some burgers. That's right, #15 (25/145)- grilled home made burgers! It was such a nice evening that we dined outside on the back porch. Then it was off to a friend/co-workers football party where we watched some of the Dallas game, Olympics (go Phelps!) and competed in the annual arm chair throwing contest. I actually took 1st place for the girls and won a bottle of Crown Royal. *** Does it really matter that only 2 girls signed up, and about 10 guys??? ***
Sunday: #97 (14/33) - Sarah was in desperate need of a trip to Emma Long Dog Park. We haven't been out there since Guinness passed away. It was a nice hike, though a little muggy, and Sarah actually went swimming all on her own! No coaxing. For lunch it was Smokey Moe's BBQ (love the chopbaker!) followed by a 2 hour nap. Later on in the afternoon Malek and I played cards for a couple hours and then headed to our volleyball game, for which we had our first win! Go team! Afterwards I caught up on all my Big Brother shows.
What a great weekend!

I've been without a grill for a little over 2 years...and unfortunately my George Foreman didn't count. Now that I have my own house I figured it was time to get a grill! For the past 2 weeks I've researched grills on-line and visited Target, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowe's and a few other places. As of last night I am now a happy grill owner! I bought the Char-Broil Designer Series Grill from Home Depot...and it was even on sale! While I did laundry and played with my hair, Malek put together the grill. It's so pretty and just the right size for me! I can't wait to use it. I think it's time for my first BBQ party! I do still need to buy a tank and a different grill cover (the one I got was too big)....I'll procure those next week.
*** Picture coming soon of my grill and me ***
I think I might also have to get this propane tank cover. :-D
OMG!!! And this BBQ set.
