Taking house off the Market

As of today we are taking our house off the market. We decided we didnt need a big house right now. So our next plan is to find some land to buy and work on paying that off and then building a house there some day. John has family that are home builders so hopefully they can help us out!! The cartoon pcture says it all. For us to buy another house we have to sell ours!

Ann visiting us from Montana

Ann came down from Montana to visit us for a few days. We enjoyed her so much. We went and watched Due date, took her to Babes chicken house, and relaxed and watched the horrible Cowboys. But I guess they are getting better. We hated to see her go and wont get to see her again til Feb. Hoping that next year we can go to Montana again!!!!


For halloween we normally go to some party and dress up. Well there were no parties to go to so we went with my family to trunk or treat at the church they go to. We had so much fun seeing the kids all dressed up. Then we went an ate at cheddars. We loved spending time with the family!!

Wedding Reception of a Coworkers

The day before halloween we went to a wedding reception of a couple that we work with. We had a great time. A few of our other coworkers were there. It was nice to see everyone dressed up and not in scrubs!!

Montana Vacation!!!

Last Thursday we got up at 330 to get on a plane at 6:05am to head to the beautiful country of Montana. John's mother and step dad moved up there 3 weeks before we came. We were so stoked about going up there to see there long lifetime dream of living up there. What an amazing place it was... Everywhere you looked it was a perfect picture for a postcard. We can see why Ann and Mike love it there. There house is super cute!! They have the most amazing scenary from there living room and kitchen. They even get bears coming up to there patio. On top of spending time doing tourist stuff John and I ran the Two Bear Marathon Sunday the 12th. Let me tell you that was the hardest marathon John and I both have ever or will ever do. Fourteen miles of the marathon were trail and the rest was asphalt with lots of hills. There were times I thought I would break my ankle or fall on my butt. There were some seriously steep inclines and declines. John finished the marathon in 4hrs 19mins and I finished mine in 5 hrs 19mins. John met me at 25 miles and ran the last part with me. Thats love right there!! Im one lucky lady! So happy we can enjoy these experiences together. He is my rock!!! We are both looking forward to going back! We did not want to leave and wish everyday we were still there!!

Chilaxin' In Louisana with The Brunson's

On Friday the 20th we headed to New Orleans to meet the couple that we hung out with on the cruise. They live and hour outside of New Orleans in Morgan City. We had a fun filled trip. A combination of meeting there family, watching boat races, a fresh crab & shrimp boil, and walking around New Orleans. By the way I never want to go back to down town New Orleans again. It stunk so freaking bad. Yuck!! Joni and Bud bought a house in May and have been remodeling it until the the day before we came. They moved in an unpacked in two days. It was crazy. I think I would have been a wreck. Her parents and Bud did alot of the work themselves. It looks so nice. Wished they would come to Texas and help us with our house. We had such a great time with them. We invited them to come see us in March. So hopefully I will get an email with their itinerary!!!
