Last week Gary and I spent 4 days in San Antonio with his parents. I had never been to San Antonio before, so I really enjoyed seeing all the sights. We shopped at the outlet malls in San Marcos, ate Mexican food on the Riverwalk, toured the Alamo, ate breakfast at The Menger Hotel, layed out by the pool at the Westin, took a cruise down the river, spent a full day at Schlitterbahn (the world's largest water park), and had brunch at the Guenther House. We enjoyed getting to spend time with the Grants. San Antonio is a neat place, if you have never been, check it out! More pictures of our trip are up on facebook.
When we arrived home in North Little Rock, we found our bathroom different than we had left it. The remodel process has finally begun! Everything had to be ripped out. Now the new frame is in place and ready for tile. We will have a bigger shower and a new floor. It will be so nice to have a little update on our tiny bathroom that we use every day!
This week was super busy at work. I was playing catch up after missing a few days for the trip. So I was ready for the weekend! Friday night our friend Hunter came in town for dinner. We ate at Acadia in the Heights. It was really good! I got the Pork Chop and Gary got Salmon.
Saturday night was the Idols Live tour! Brooke and I had tickets on the floor. We ate dinner at The Starving Artist Cafe in Argenta before the show. (Excellent!) All of the Idols performed and they did a fantastic job. Kris was amazing, he made Arkansas proud. After the show we met up with Justin, Kirt, Bekah and Whitney and waited by the buses for the Idols to come out. After a about an hour we got to meet, all of the guys! So much fun! IHOP followed, I got home at 2:15am. I have been drained every since! I decided I am getting to old to stay up past midnight. Sad huh?
Yesterday, after church and a baby shower at US Pizza, Gary and I worked in the yard. We dug up a huge dead plant in front of our house. It looks so much better, but man am I sore today!
Cleaning for my Pampered Chef Party tonight. Looking forward to trying a Mexican Pizza and Margarita Pie!

It's been a busy few weeks for us. After a fun 4th of July weekend at the lake with Caleb and Laura, Gary spent the last week in Houston , TX working. He has had his hands full trying to get the company's name out to the Texas Walmarts. I spent the week getting ready for my first 5k. The race was last night at the Big Dam Bridge. It was so exciting running with all those people around you. I finished in 36minutes and 50 seconds. I would love to have done it in 30 minutes, but considering I only trained for about 2 weeks, I was pleased. The race really got me excited about training for the half marathon. After the race, Gary, Brooke, Jonathan, Rachel, and I went out for pizza downtown to celebrate.
Today after church, we enjoyed resting all afternoon. Then, we went and saw "Bruno" together. It was out of control, but I gotta admit it had me laughing a lot. Tonight we grilled chicken, played with Lola and caught up on some TV. In less than an hour we will be going to pick up my parents and brother from their youth choir mission trip to New York, DC, and Philadelphia. It feels like they have been gone forever and I am looking forward to hearing all about their trip.
