I went to the doctor to find out why I keep getting terribly sick and they took blood for testing. Good: I'm not pregnant Bad: it may just be really bad migraines. dinner with Kyle on post. I won! backyard.
Hux saw a squirrel. dots and plaid. cheese, crackers, jalapeno jelly. new kitty friend (pretty sure this one isn't homeless, but it looks like he has ear mites).
brother and sister. tea on a cold morning with husband. kitties.
tasty nut clusters. VOTE. B&N. frozen yogurt!
Hobbes is back (what we named him). wine that I spilled right after this picture. pancakes on Sunday.
heading out. Home Depot. playing with Miss D.
pumpkin carving. Kyle's tasty dinner. neon yellow. Sushi with Sar!

A nice cold front swooped in around Friday, and our house has been pretty chilly ever since, and I love it. Kyle and I had to bring out our big down comforter (we call it "the poof"), and I've even started wearing socks (on occasion). The cats are confused by the wind chill outside and Kyle wanted to turn on the heat Sunday morning when we could see our breath (I refused, though. It just seems wrong after so many months in the hot death of Texas summer). I get cold very easily and I complain about being cold, sure, but I really do love it. Must be my Canadian blood.
Also- the cats wanting to pile up on me at night is much more welcome when it's chilly. So there's that, too. :)

We shared a Hey Cupcake! Michael Jackson cupcake! chocolate with cream cheese frosting- yum!
We put money in this super weird parking meter...You shove bills in these slots.
We had some tasty food on South Congress (me- taco salad, Abby- fajitas).
the real boots with the fur
Spent some time on Sixth Street...hoping to spot the movie being filmed in Austin (no luck).
Oh and, Abigail got a tattoo! Apparently when anybody comes to visit us, we end up taking them to Atomic Tattoo to get some ink. This one was more unexpected, though, but awesome to continue the tradition :)
In other news, driving in the city stresses me like nothing else.

Luckily the dancing part of the evening did not require such prompting to get things going. I had no idea if people would be into dancing and hit the floor, but my worrying was for naught (and I imagine the open and very well stocked bar helped). We had a whole section of the farm (right next to the bar and DJ) for dancing, and the floor was filled with people from dinner to the end of the night. And man do we have some great dancers for friends! My littlest cousin, Sheridyn, was definitely the queen of the dance floor- she was dancing non stop through the evening, leading dances, initiating dance-offs, and dancing with anyone and everyone. It was great to see everyone having such a great time. I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
(also our first dance was nothing thrilling to see- we basically walked around in circles to Crazy Love by Van Morrison)
A quick word about our DJs-Jodi and Larry Moore- they were awesome! We actually went to high school with their sons. I worked with Jodi through phone calls to plan the outline of the day, and she was really helpful and brought up a lot of things I hadn't thought about. On the actual day they played a great selection of songs. To be honest, I probably would have been happy as long as they played Will You be There (which they did!). At the end of the night they had a little dance break themselves!
