#30 - I saw a hot air balloon on the way to work this morning. I've always wanted to go for a hot air balloon ride. I bet it was a bit chilly up there since it was only 65 degrees. Also as I was pulling into the parking lot at work I noticed a SWAT car behind me with fully decked out SWAT guys. Yikes!
#29 - At happy hour today I saw someone with this drink. It's called a red-headed Mexican. I can't remember all the different alcohols in this drink...beer, sangria...and something else. Either way I think it would make anyone throw up. Thanks, but I'll pass.
#28 - These are our neighbors to the left of us and across the street (we are located on a corner lot). It's going to be a HUGE house. So far the construction hasn't bothered us...but the workers have. They seem to think it's OK to lounge on our grass during the day and play soccer on our side walk versus walking across the street to the park.
And this is the area to the right of our house. A nice open field with trees and a small pond area (pond kinda hard to see right now). I'll be sad when they actually develop this side of the street/neighborhood. However I do think it will be at least 2 years before they touch it. Gotta enjoy it while we can!
#27 - That's right, that window is open! It's finally cool enough that we can turn off the A/C and open the windows for a nice breeze. The temp was down to 57 degrees last night and is supposed to do the same thing tonight! I love Fall!
# 26 - The Pluck Wagon! We went to our fav hangout today to watch the Cowboys and the Pluck Wagon was actually on site. I just had to get a picture, isn't it hilarious!? I love the feet sticking out the backside of the van.
#23 - The finished stone walls...still missing mulch. I think they turned out pretty good once the guy redid the first one so it matched the other two. The circles are big enough for us to even plant some flowers around the trees.
#20 - Landscaping the trees. We decided to add stone walls around the three trees in the front yard. I think its turning out nicely. Right now there are 2 layers...I think we'll have them do one more and call it good.
Today we went to the UT stadium to see The Body Exhibit. I must say it was pretty cool to see all our body parts preserved and on display like that, very educational and also a bit disturbing. Those are real people folks! I did learn some new facts as we explored all the different areas. Afterwards we headed to The Drag for lunch at Texadelphia and then to the Co-Op for some UT apparel. Along the way Emma and I found some statues. ;)
#12 - Home Slice Pizza! While out running errands we stopped by Home Slice. I've been craving it for weeks. We arrived 15 mins before it opened, so we actually were able to get a table inside. For an appetizer we tried the garlic knots (which we both thought were just OK), and then we split a medium pizza; half Margherita, half 3 topping. Yum!
Day 8, Picture 8 - our dried up creek has turned into a lake with all the rain from the tropical storm. It's hard to see it in the picture, but the sidewalk is completely washed out on the backside and the little bridge is under water. This picture is also just a small section of the 'lake' in front of our house, it expands in both directions. I can actually see the water from our bathroom window (which is on the side of the house). Lots of flooding and road closures in Pf.
Yup, this is where I spend the majority of my day during the week. I actually like my cube, it's next to a window (you can see it over my cube wall) and it's a decent size with plenty of shelving and storage.
And just for fun, do you remember this entertaining parody of James Blunt's hit song You're Beautiful?
