Back from TX

I was able to go visit Gwen & her family in Lubbock Texas this past week (since it really was my last week of total, absolute, selfish freedom :). It was my last week of vacation for the year, school starts next week, & once this semester is over I'll have a baby)! I had a lot of fun, but being the retard I am, didn't take very many pictures. Our main project was decorating Sydney's room & the room for her new baby- Both turned out DARLING (check out Gwen's blog to see pictures)!! We went shopping one day & got some DANG good deals on baby clothes! We also indulged in the BEST frozen custard I have ever had- It's from a place called Sheridan's that we visited almost daily! It was great just to hang out & spend the days together- Thanks for having me :)!
I had a lot of fun hanging out with my little buddy, Sydney too!! We watched the GAY Wiggles A LOT (she loves Wally) & The Little Mermaid (one of my favorites growing up)! Plus, we just laughed a lot- She discovered what cross-eyes look like, courtesy of me, & was in hysterics for almost 30 minutes!! She's getting so big everyday, so it was nice just to be with her!
The trip home wasn't exactly thrilling- my flight got delayed not 1, not 2, but 4 HOURS & then there was BAD turbulence for most of the flight home. I did make some use of my time at the airport- I bought Twilight & New Moon from the ONLY gift shop in Lubbock airport (basically because they were the ONLY titles I recognized & they were on sale). All I have to say is, so far it's definitely living up to all the hype!

PS: Gwen, it took me 14 minutes to post this ;)

I didn't know they moved. Looks like you had lots of fun! It's always fun to go visit sisters especially when you are pregnant and don't feel bad about indulging on food :)

Glad you're back and you had a good time. Do I get you now for a little bit? :) I've been going NUTS waiting to go on our "date" to Savers! I'm sure there's stuff wanting to come home with us!

Hey! I cut PAce's hair - and the post (because I only had TWO pictures to upload) took me all of 15 minutes to complete!! Hope you're proud... :) Love you!

How fun! It is so neat that you got to go and help them get set up and just spend time together away from te demands of school and work.

So crazy story! I was just up in Sheridan, Wyoming! I was at church and just happened to start talking to this lady who use to work at Wellsfargo with your sister Gwen! Her name was Jen Stewart! I thought it was pretty random! What a small world! Sounds like you had tons and tons of fun!

Glad you got to spend some time with Gwen and Sydney. How fun! I love custard. So sad she lives so far away now.
